Picket Fences! Part 1

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Buford Falls was just like any other small town in the South in the late 1940's. The houses were nice, but not by any means the most expensive. When our story begins, there's five houses on Shadetree Lane. That's Joy Anderson and her best friend Mary Lou Edwards gossiping over the picket fence that seperates their lots.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Joy lives in this white frame house with a green picket fence. She''s been living here since she and her husband Larry got married.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Joy and Larry both grew up in Buford Falls and got married right after they graduated from high school. They have a six year old daughter named Arlene.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Mary Lou lives next door in this red brick house with a white picket fence. She's been living here for six years. Mary Lou and her husband Peter have been living in Buford Falls all their lives. They got married a year after they graduated from high school.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Mary Lou and Peter have a three year old daughter named Julie.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

This house with the brown siding and a brown picket fence is on the other side of Joy's house.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Ben and Betty Jones are the neighbors who live here. Like Joy and Larry, Betty and Ben got married right after high school. They have a six year old daughter named Judy and two year old son named Mike.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

There's another white frame house with a white picket fence across the street where neighbors Emily and Sam Martin live.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Emily and Sam moved from Veronaville to Buford Falls a little over a year ago. They have been married three years and have a son Jimmy who is almost two year's old.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The white frame house next door to the Martin's had been empty since elderly Grace Sawyer died last year. The neighbors on Shadetree Lane have been waiting and wondering what was to become of the house. Grace was an old maid and had no relatives that anyone knew about.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Then one day the waiting and wondering was over when he moved in . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Joy and Mary Lou hurried across the street to greet their new neighbor. His name is Rhys Sawyer and he's from Pleasantview. He says he's Grace's grandson but as far as anyone knows, she didn't have any childern. Or did she?

Picket Fences! Part 2

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
When Rhys Sawyer moved into the empty house on Shadetree Lane, his neighbors Joy and Mary Lou came to welcome him to the neighborhood.

"Would you ladies like to come in and have a cup of coffee?" asked Rhys.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"I'd love to but I left my baby asleep in her crib. I only intended to be gone a few minutes" said Mary Lou.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"I'd love to have a cup Rhys", said Joy, "I don't have anyone waiting at home."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Bye y'all", said Mary Lou.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Rhys made a pot of coffee and carried two cups into the livingroom. He handed her a cup and sit down beside her on the sofa.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Rhys, you said Grace was your grandmother, right?", asked Joy.

"Yeah, she was my dad's mother", he said.

"All us in town were under the impression that she was an old maid", said Joy.

"I don't know much about her. I was sent to an orphanage after my parents died. I didn't even know I had a grandmother until I got the letter from her lawyer, saying I was her sole heir", he explained.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"How long have you and your husband been living in Buford Falls?" he asked.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"We both were born in Buford Falls. Larry and I went to grammer school together and started dating when we were in high school. Then we got married right after we graduated", she said, "Mary Lou and Peter did the same thing. Seems like we've all been friends forever".

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Have you ever been married?", she asked.

"NO, I never have been or ever wanted to be", he said.

"It's not that bad. You should try it", she laughed.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"That's alright. I'll take your word for it", he said.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Rhys put a record on the record player and started dancing to the music.

"Come over here and dance with me", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"This is the first time I've danced in a long time", she said.

"Don't you and Larry ever dance?", he asked.

"We use to but he's always too tired now when he comes home from work.", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"What does Larry do for a living?", asked Rhys.

"He's a Field Researcher. I don't know exactly what that is, but he makes good money", she said.

"Well, while he's making the money, you can come over here and dance with me", said Rhys.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"It's getting late. I best be getting on home. My daughter will be home from school at 3:30", she said.

"You're welcome to come back for coffee anytime", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Thank you Rhys", she said, giving him a friendly hug.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then Joy left to go home.

Picket Fences! Part 3

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The next morning Joy got a telephone call.

"Hello" she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Joy, this is Mary Lou. What did you do at Rhys' house yesterday? You stayed in there an awful long time."

"We sit in his livingtoom and chatted while we had coffee", said Joy, "I'll talk to you later Mary Lou. I got to fix breakfast. Larry's getting up."

"Alright, bye" said Mary Lou.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Who was that on the telephone?" asked Larry.

"Just Mary Lou" said Joy.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The schoolbus and Larry's carpool pulled up in front of the house at the same time.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Larry hurried out to catch his ride. He couldn't afford to be late if he wanted that promotion at work.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
And Arlene ran out the door to catch the schoolbus. The busdriver was honking the horn like it was a matter of life or death.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
After Joy cleaned up the kitchen and dressed for the day, the telephone started ringing again.

"Hello" she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Hey beautiful! You want to meet me downtown at the coffee shop?" asked Rhys.

"I don't know if I should or not" she said.

"It's just a cup of coffee at a public place" he said, "What's the harm in that?"

"Well, alright. I'll meet you there", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The taxicab arrived a few minutes later. With a still undecided look on her face, Joy was on her way to the coffee shop to meet Rhys.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Rhys was waiting in front of The Handle and Spout when she stepped out of the taxicab.

"Hey beautiful. Why do you look so nervous?" he asked.

"I feel guilty about being out with anybody but Larry" she said.

"You're just going to drink a cup of coffee with me. There's nothing wrong with that", he said.

"You're right. I'm just being silly" she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Rhys have you ever wondered who your grandfather was?" asked Joy.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"That all happened a long time ago. My grandfather was just someone who used Grace and then threw her away when she got pregnant" he said, "I figure she wanted to make ammends to my dad by leaving everything she owned to me."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"I really should be getting home. If Larry was to call or if Arlene was to get sick at school nobody knows where I am" she said.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"You worry too much about stuff that hasn't even happened" he said.

"I'm just cautious" she said.

"I think you'll be happier if you 'threw caution to the wind' " said Rhys.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"I think I better go home now" she said.

"Anything you say beautiful" said Rhys.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Then Joy called a taxicab.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys gave her a hug goodbye . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
And she left to go home.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Picket Fences! Part 4

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
It's Thrusday morning in Buford Falls. At Mary Lou Anderson's house on Shady Lane . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Her husband Peter, a Field Researcher waved goodbye on his way out the door.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Peter's carpool came at 8:30 AM in order to get him to work at 9AM.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Mary Lou and Peter's daughter Julie left at 8:30 AM to catch the schoolbus. Today is Julie's first day of school.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
When the telephone rang Mary Lou answered "Hello!"

"Mary Lou this is Emily. Can I come over for a short visit this morning?"

"Sure come on over" said Mary Lou.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

When Emily came in the backdoor, Mary Lou noticed immediately that she was wearing a maternity top.

"Oh Emily, I'm so excited for you and Sam. When is the baby due?" she asked.

"I'm not exactly sure yet. I got an appointment with Dr. Brian tomorrow morning. Will you go with me?", she asked.

"Sure, I'd love to go. We can go to lunch afterwards. My treat", Mary Lou said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Your belly is already pretty big. You might be expecting twins", she said.

"Sam would be thrilled if I have twins this time. He wants a big family" said Emily.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Mary Lou gave Emily a goodbye hug. I'll see you in the morning", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Emily left to go back home.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Then Mary Lou called Joy.

"How about coming over and telli me all about Mr. Rhys Sawyer."

"I'll be there in a few minutes" said Joy.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"What did you find out about Rhys when you stayed in his house for two hours the other day?" asked Mary Lou.

"Well, he said he was sent to an orphanage after his parents died. That's where he grew up" said Joy.

"I wonder why Grace didn't get custody of Rhys after he was orphaned. She would have been the logical choice to raise him", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"You would think so, but I guess she didn't want to explain having a child living here when the whole town thought she was an old maid. It would have been a real scandal back then. She would have never lived down the embarassment", said Joy,"It just seems a shame that Rhys grew up in an orphanage when he had family", said Mary Lou.

"Yeah, he said he didn't know he had a grandmother until he got the letter from Grace's lawyer.", said Joy, "Rhys thinks Grace tried to make amends to his dad by leaving him everything she owned."

"I wonder who it was that Grace loved enough to have a child with", said Mary Lou.

"Rhys said it was someone who just used Grace and then threw her away when she got pregnant", said Joy.

"Well, we should help Rhys find a nice single girl to marry, so he can start his own family", said Mary Lou.

"When I asked him if he had ever been married, he told me he never had or ever wanted to be. I told him it wasn't that bad and he said he would take my word for it", said Joy.

"If he meets the right girl, he'll change his mind", said Mary Lou.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"I saw Emily when she was going back home. I didn't know she and Sam were planning on having another child", said Joy.

"Oh yes, she said Sam wanted a big family and he would be thrilled if she had twins. I'm going with her to the doctor's in the morning. I'm taking her to lunch afterwards. I thought we'd go to the pizze parlor", said Mary Lou.

"Well I'm happy for them then. I got to be getting on home. I haven't even made the beds this morning", said Joy.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Bye Joy", called Mary Lou.

"Bye Mary Lou", she answered.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
That night at Joy and Larry's house . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
When the telephone started ringing Joy answered.

"Hello", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Hey beautiful. Can you meet me tomorrow someplace? I want to see you again", he said.

"I guess I can", she said, "Call me in the morning."

"Alright I will", said Rhys.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Who was that on the telephone?", asked Larry.

"Oh, just Mary Lou. She's going with Emily to the doctor's and wanted to know if I wanted to go with them", said Joy.

"What's wrong with Emily?", he asked.

"She's pregnant", said Joy.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"You know, I wouldn't mind us having another baby. It would be kinda nice having a little brother for Arlene. Don't you think?", he said.

"I'll think about it. Alright?", she answered.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Goodnight sweetheart", he said.

"Goodnight", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"You coming to bed?", he asked.

"I'll be on in a little while", she said.

Picket Fences!  Part 5

 [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The next morning over at Rhys Sawyer's house . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
He was doing some early morning reading while . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Jasmyn Carlson, his maid from Service cleaned up the kitchen and . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Made up Rhys' bed.  

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys walked into the bedroom . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Hey beautiful", he said.

"Good morning", said.Jasmyn

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then reached behind her and gave her "a goose".

"Ow!", she screamed, "Why did you do that?"

"Because I felt like it and could", he laughed.


I'm finished with my work.  Do you want me to stay and hang out?", she asked.

"No, not today.  I got to meet someone downtown.  I'll see you again Monday", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys picked up the telephone and called Joy.

"Hey beautiful.  Can you meet me at The Zoo.  That should be public enough to suit you", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Alright I'll meet you at the front gate", she said.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys took a quick shower . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
And left to meet Joy.  

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
At Joy's house, she was leaving to go to Buford Falls Zoo.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Meanwhile at Buford Falls Hospital . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Dr. Brian and his wife Nurse Jane were taking care of patients as usual.    

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Emily Martin was chatting with Mary Lou Edwards while she waited to see Dr. Brian.  Emily would probably have her baby at home, but needed to be checked out by the doctor just in case.  
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Their neighbor Betty Jones was in the waiting room with her son Mike.  He wasn't feeling well this morning and missed school.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
They went into one of the examining rooms with Dr. Brian.

"What seems to be wrong with Mike, Betty?", he asked.

"He said he didn't feel good.  So I let him stay home this morning", she said, "I hated for him to miss school on his first day."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Mike, were you excited when you grew up and discovered you were big enough to go to school?", said Dr. Brian.

"Nope", answered Mike.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Mike, you have a case of Simschoolitis.  Since today is Friday, I think you will be all better by  Monday.  If you're not, I'll give your mama some nasty tasting medicine to give you.  Alright?", said the doctor.

"Yes sir", said Mike.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Emily was next and went into the examining room.   After Dr. Brian checked her out, he said "Emily, you and your babies are as healthy as can be."

"Babies?", she asked.

"Yes, you're carrying twins", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"I'm finished.  Let's go have lunch.  I'm starving", said Emily.

Picket Fences! Part 6

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

At Buford Falls Zoo . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

When Rhys arrived . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Joy was waiting for him.

"Where have you been? I felt like a fool standing out here alone. What would I have said if somebody I knew had come by?", she said.

"I called the taxicab right after I talked to you. I told you you worry too much about stuff that hasn't happened", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Let's go ride the ferris wheel first", he said.

"I haven't been on one of those since I was a child", she said.

"I never got to ride one when I was a child. At the orphanage we didn't get to go anywhere but to school and church", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

They rode the ferris wheel for nearly an hour. When Joy finally persuded Rhys to do something else . . .
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

They went to see the wolves.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"It's nice sitting here with you. I feel like a teenager again", she said.

"If that was the case, I'd be to old for YOU", he laughed.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Rhys, do you think it matters that I'm older than you?", she asked.

"No, I think people are only as old as they feel", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Then they went to the aquarium to see a whale.

"He's huge! I'd hate to get attacked by him", said Joy.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"How about me then", joked Rhys.

"I think I'd have a fighting chance with you", she laughed.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"You'll never know until it happens", he said.

"NO that's alright. I'll take your word for it", she said.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"I'm getting hungry, let's go over to the picnic area", she said.

"Anything you say beautiful", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Rhys cooked hotdogs for their lunch.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"I met Sam Martin the other day. He invited me to come for supper. He seems like a nice fellow. He's a Military Recruit and told me that would be a good career for me. I told him I didn't need to work and looked at me like I was nuts."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Well most folks around here have to work for a living. You should consider yourself lucky to inherit a house and enough money to support yourself", she said.

"Yeah, I'm lucky alright", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

After they finished lunch Rhys jumped into the hottub and Joy joined him.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"What, you going to sit over there all by yourself? Come over here with me", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"I guess it will be alright", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Now this is much better", he said.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Then Rhys grabbed Joy and gave her a romantic kiss.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Rhys, I best be getting home. Arlene will be home from school and Larry will be coming home from work before long", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Joy hurried to get out of the hottub.

"What are you afraid of Joy", asked Rhys.

"Nothing. I just don't want to be late getting home", she said.

"Did you have a good day at work?", Joy asked.

"Yes, everything was fine", he said.

"That's good", she said, "I'll get supper ready while you change."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Joy fixed spagetti for supper. Since her mind was on other things . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
She had burned it.

"I'm sorry the spagetti is burned. I'll fix you something else if you want", she said.

"No, it's alright. Just a little overdone", he said.

"I'm up for that promotion at work. If I get it, I'll make more money and work less hours ", said Larry.

"Well that sounds like a good deal. You deserve it", she said.

The family watched television together for a couple of hours.

When it was Arlene's bedtime she gave her daddy a goodnight hug . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Then she hugged her mama goodnight.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

After Arlene fell asleep, Larry and Joy relaxed on their bed.

"I didn't want to say it in front of Arlene, but the bonus that comes with that promotion will pay for everything we'll need for the baby", he said.

"I haven't decided yet if I want to have another one", she said

"Larry, I still need time to think about it", she said.

"Alright, let's just do woo hoo. We don't have to try for a baby this time", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then they did woo hoo . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Afterwards Larry and Joy both fell asleep.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The next morning over at Mary Lou's house.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Larry gave Mary Lou a tender kiss goodbye before his carpool arrived to take him to work.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The schoolbus came to pick up Julie an hour later.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Mary Lou called Joy . . .

"I'll make a fresh pot of coffee. Come on over and help me drink it."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Alright Mary Lou, I'll be there in a few minutes."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
When Joy arrived at Mary Lou's she poured herself a cup of coffee and sit down.

"How did Emily's doctor's appointment go yesterday?"
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Dr. Brian told her the babies were an healthy as they could be. We didn't have to wait too long. The only other patient there was Betty's little boy Mike. I didn't dare ask her what was wrong. You know how she is?"

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"She must be happy about having twins. She and Sam want a big family", said Joy, "but you know something. I wish I had never told Larry that Emily was pregnant. Now he wants to have another baby. He said 'It would be kinda nice if we had a little brother for Arlene."

"So what did you say to that?", asked Mary Lou.

"I told him I wasn't sure I wanted to go through that again, but I would think about it", said Joy.

"Well, you shouldn't have told him you'd think about it. Now he'll pester you until you say yes", Mary Lou said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Mary Lou, I need a big favor from you", said Joy.

"Sure, you know I'll do anything for you", she said, "We've best friends. You're like the sister I never had."

"Well, just if Larry happens to ask, tell him I went with you and Emily to the doctor's yesterday. Alright?"

"Sure", she said, "And I'm not even going to ask you why."
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Thank you Mary Lou. You're the best best friend anyone could have", said Joy.

Picket Fences! Part 8



[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

It's Monday morning at Rhys Sawyer's house . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The maid Jasmyn Carlson came and went in less than an hour. She told Rhys she wasn't feeling well this morning. She thought she might have the flu.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Rhys went outside and gave his gardener Elsie Phillips a $100 tip.

"Elsie you did a great job on my yard', he said.

"Thank you Rhys, you're the best", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

A few minutes later Elsie came inside.

"I've finished my work, do you want me to stay and hangout?", she asked.

"Sure Beautiful, I know something we can do", said Rhys.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then he carried her into the bedroom and . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Put her on his bed and they madeout.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Do you want me Elsie?", he asked.

"Yes", she answered.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Woo Hoo!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Do you want me to stay longer?", she asked.

"No, not today. I'll see you tomorrow", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then Elsie left to go home.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Rhys took a shower and . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Changed into a fresh outfit.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

He went over to the telephone and called Joy.

"Hey Beautiful", he said, "Can you come over?"

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"We're just sitting down to breakfast. I'm still in my nightgown", she said.

"Now that I'd like to see", laughed Rhys.

"Call me later", she told him.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Who was that on the telephone?", asked Larry.

"Just Mary Lou", said Joy.

"What did she want so early in the morning?", he asked.

"She asked me over for coffee", said Joy.

"Mary Lou should know we have breakfast this time every morning", he said.

"I guess she just wasn't thinking", said Joy.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Arlene and Larry left for school and work at 8:30 AM.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

When the telephone started ringing, Joy answered.

"Hello!"

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Hey Beautiful! I saw Larry leaving. Can you come over now?"

"Alright, I'll be there in a few minutes", she said.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Joy left by her backdoor to walk over to Rhys' house. She was hoping none of the neighbors would see her.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

When she got to his house Rhys was waiting for her right inside his backdoor.

"Hey Beautiful", he said, "I missed you."

"I missed you, too", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"I'm sorry I called too early this morning. I hope it didn't cause any problems", said Rhys.

" Larry asked me who was calling so early. I told him it was Mary Lou", she said.

"I hated being forced to live on a schedule at the orphanage. Now I just do everything whenever I please", he said.

"Well some people like organization", she said.

"Like you?", he asked.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Yes, like me", she said, nuzzeling his neck.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Rhys gave her a romantic kiss and she kissed him back.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"We both know where this is going. Let's go relax on my bed where we'll be more comfortable", he said.

"Alright, but I'm NOT going to do woo hoo", she said.

"Anything you say Beautiful", he said.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys relaxed on his bed and waited for Joy to join.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Come over here with me", he said.

Joy looked uncertain but . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
She did as Rhys asked.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
He gave her a romantic kiss.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Do you want me Joy?", he asked.

"Yes", she said

"You need to be sure. Once it's done there's no going back", said Rhys.

"I'm sure Rhys", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Woo Hoo!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Did you enjoy that as much as I did?", he asked.

"Yes, you're incredible", she answered.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"What's wrong?", he asked.

"It's getting late. I got to get home", she said.

"Stay just a little longer, please", he said.

"I'm sorry, I can't", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then Joy left to go home.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

She walked across Rhys' backyard, walked across the street and over to her own backyard. She hoped this round-about way home would keep anyone from seeing her.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

But as fate would have it, just about that time, Mary Lou was calling her. When she didn't get an answer . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

She looked out the window and saw Joy coming from Rhys' house.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Joy entered her own house by the backdoor.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

She took a quick bath, changed clothes and . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Fell asleep on the sofa.

Picket Fences! Part 9

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Joy didn't wake up from her nap until almost 3 PM. She hurried to get suppe ready before Larry and Arlene came home. She decided to fix macoroni and cheese. It was quick and it also happened to be Larry's favorite

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"My teacher is taking the whole class to the zoo", said Arlene.

"You'll enjoy seeing all the animals and they have a huge whale", said Joy.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

When the telephone started ringing Joy answered . . .

"Hello!"

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Joy it's Mary Lou. I called you this afternoon and you weren't home."

"I'm sorry, I was taking a nap and must not have heard the telephone ringing", explained Joy.

"Well I just wanted to remind you about Emily's baby shower tomorrow", she said.

"I'll be there", said Joy.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

When Joy returned to the table Larry said, "I wish Mary Lou would stop calling at meal time. Don't they ever eat? I'm going to change before our shows come on."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Mommy, Miss Edwards told us girls we could wear pants to the zoo. The principal gave his permission, but only for this one time, of course", Arlene said.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

" Well I personally think it makes more sense for you to wear pants. I wish you could wear them every day", said Joy.

"I think she looks better in dresses. She's a girl not a boy", said Larry.

"It's bedtime and you can wear pajama pants to bed at least", said Joy.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Arlene went to bed and was soon asleep.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Larry stayed up to watch the news on television and by the time he came to bed Joy was asleep.

Joy was dreaming of Rhys and didn't awaken when Larry scooted up close behind her.

The next day was Saturday. Over at Mary Lou's house the guests had arrived for the baby shower.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Emily was in the last stage of pregnancy and was the picture of health. Since Emily's and her husband Sam's parents live in Veronaville, her mother and mother-in-law weren't able to come today.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Mary Lou's daughter Julie was chatting with Betty's daughter Judy . . .

"I don't think you'll do it. I dare you", said Judy.

"Alright, I'll ask her", said Julie.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then Julie went over to Emily and asked THAT question.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"I think you should ask your mother about that", said Emily, "It's up to her to explain it to you when she thinks you're ready to know."
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

After all the guests had gone Emily thanked Mary Lou and hugged her goodbye.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

A short while later Mary Lou's husband Peter came home from the movie theatre.

"Did you guys enjoy "Captain Kidd"?", asked Mary Lou.

"Yeah, I think Sam and I enjoyed it as much as Jimmy did", he said.

"Did you ladies enjoy yourselves and catch up on the latest gossip?", he asked.

"I think it went pretty well. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves", said Mary Lou.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Nurse Jane was sitting with her husband Dr. Thomas Brian.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Emily and Sam were seated together.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Mike got really aggravated having to listen to the hour-long sermon.

"This is not my scene!" he cried.

"My heart bleeds for you" said Judy.

(1940's slang expressions)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Mike stepped up to the podium. He would talk, then belch loudy. His parents should have put a stop to it, but . . .
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

They were too busy gossiping about Joy to notice Mike misbehaving.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Nurse Jane walked over to Rhys and started up a conversation. (In the background, Doctor Brian was watching them. )

"Hello, hello", she said, "I'm Nurse Jane. I'll take care of you if you should ever become ill."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Thank you, I'll do that!", said Rhys.

She started swooning over Rhys and getting all dreamy-eyed. Then she turned and walked off.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Doctor Brian came over and started arguing at Rhys . . .

"That was MY wife you were flirting with", he said, "You're not the first pretty face that's gotten her attention, so get lost!"

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"SHE came over and started talking to ME! I don't want your wife! You tell HER that I said to get lost!", said Rhys.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"What did you say to that nice young man?", she asked.

"I just reminded him that you were a married woman and way out of his league", he said.



[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

When Rhys went out to the cemetary beside the church . . .

The pastor came over and asked, "Is there someone in particular you're looking for?"

"My grandmother Grace Sawyer is buried here", said Rhys.

"Grace was a wonderful lady", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"So you knew my grandmother pretty well then", said Rhys.

"Yes, she contributed a lot of her time and money to the church", he said.

"I never got to meet her. Her grave has only a plain headstone. Do you know where I can purchase a fancier one?", asked Rhys.

"I have a catalog from the monument company. Perhaps one with an angel on it. Grace loved angels", he said.
"That would be perfect. Can you order one and let me know how much I owe?", said Rhys.

"Yes, of course, I'll pick out one I think she would like", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then Rhys left to go home.

Picket Fences! Part 10.1

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Monday morning after Larry and Arlene had left for work and school . . .

Joy received a telephone call from Rhys.

"Hello!"

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Hey Beautiful! You want to go on a picnic with me?", he asked.

"Sure, if it's somewhere nobody I know will see us", she said.

"It's private. I own it", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

This wooded lot in the country was part of Rhys' inheritance from his grandmother's estate.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"It's beautiful out here in the country", said Joy.

"Yeah, I'd like to have a house built but it would be a shame to cut down the trees", said Rhys.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Mister Conservationlist", she teased, tickling him.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Leave it as it is. The ages have been at work on it and man can only mar it'. And I quote the great Theodore Roosevelt", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Well I guess I shouldn't have joked about that. He evidently knew what he was talking about", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Then Rhys grabbed her and gave her a passionate kiss.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Come on, let's eat. I didn't eat any breakfast this morning", he said.

"I had pancakes but I'm still hungry", she said.

"You better watch out or you're going to get fat", he laughed.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Rhys and Joy sit on a log and ate the picnic lunch he had fixed at home.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Well how was it?", he asked.

"It was delicious. I enjoyed every mouthful", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Rhys why was Dr. Brian arguing at you after the church service", she asked.

"His wife wanted to get a little too friendly with me and he told me to get lost", Rhys explained.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"What did you tell him?", she asked.

"To tell his wife I said to get lost", he said.

"Nurse Jane is the biggest flirt in town and he knows it", she said..

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys gave Joy a passionate kiss and . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
She returned it with an equal passion of her own.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"I think I better be getting home, don't you?"

"Yeah, whatever you say beautiful", he said.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then he gave her one more kiss and . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

They left to return to their seperate houses on Shadetree Lane.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Meanwhile over at Emily and Sam Martin's house . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Emily called Mary Lou on the telephone.

"Mary Lou, guess what? I had twins! A boy and a girl we named Nathan and Nancy. Can you come over?"

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Sure, I can't wait to see them. I'll call Joy and ak her to come with me. We'll be there in a few minutes."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Mary Lou soon arrived at Emily's house . . .

"Why didn't Joy come over?", asked Emily.

"I tried to call her but she's not home. I'll call her tonight after supper", said Mary Lou.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Sam came home from work. He got a promotion and a big bonus. He'll need the extra money now that he has two new mouths to feed.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"I guess I'll be going on home. I got a lot of housework to do before Peter and Julie get home", said Mary Lou.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Goodbye Mary Lou, thank you for coming", said Emily.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
That same afternoon at Joy's house . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Arlene arrived home and brought her friend Julie home with her on the schoolbus.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Larry's carpool dropped his off a few minutes later. His neighbor Ben who also just arrived home, came over from across the street.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Listen to the latest gossip Larry. Our new neighbor Rhys Sawyer . . .
"Is having an affair with . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Joy Anderson", whispered Ben.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Rhys Sawyer is on active duty alright, but not with MY wife", laughed Larry

"I'll have supper ready by the time you change clothes", she said, "I told Arlene she could invite Julie to eat with us."

"I can hardly wait for tomorrow to come. The zoo is going to be so much fun", said Julie.

"Yeah, my mama said they had a big whale on exhibit", said Arlene.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Joy called everyone to supper a few minutes later.

"Our teacher gave each of us a shirt to wear tomorrow. Mine has a baby tiger on it", said Arlene.

"Mine has wolf cubs", said Julie.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
When Joy went into the kitchen to clean up she got her first "baby bump".

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Are you kidding?"

(1940's slang)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Joy went back into the livingroom. Larry rubbed her belly and smiled.

"This is the best surprise I could ever imagine. You've made me very happy sweetheart", he said.
"I'm happier than I thought I'd be", she said.

Larry went into Arlene's room and read the girls a story.

"This might or might not be his baby", she said.

"You want to bet on it", said Mary Lou.

Picket Fences! Part 11.2

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Meanwhile at Joy and Larry Anderson's house . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Larry had the day off from work and was doing some yard work.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

He saw his neighbor Rhys Sawyer when he came out to get his newspaper.

"Hey Sawyer! Come over here!", Larry shouted.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"My friends call me Rhys and since we're neighbors, that goes for you, too", he said.

"Alright Rhys. You may call me Larry", said Larry.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"So Larry, why did you call me over?", asked Rhys.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"There's some gossip around town about you having an affair. It wouldn't normally be any of my business except . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"People are saying it's with my wife", he said.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"You shouldn't listen to gossip, because that's ALL it is", said Rhys, "Gossip!"

(Gossip is idle talk or rumor about the personal or private affairs of others, typically involving details not confirmed as being true.)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then Rhys walked back across the street . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

And Larry went in his house.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Joy was sitting on the couch and asked him to join.

"Who were you talking to outside just now?", asked Joy.

"Just that young fellow who lives across the street", he said.

"Grace's grandson, you mean?", said Joy.

"Yeah him", said Larry.

"Mary Lou and I went over to welcome him to the neighborhood when he moved in", said Joy, "He seemed pretty nice."

"I've heard he's "on active duty, but he's not much more than a kid. What he does shouldn't concern us, right?", Larry said.

"Right!", said Joy.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

At 3:30 PM Arlene came home from school.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Joy served plates of spagetti to Larry and Arlene before joining them at the table.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Arlene, did you have a good time at the zoo?", asked Larry.

"Yes, it was fun. I saw lots of animals, played on the swings and had a hotdog for lunch", said Arlene.

"That sounds like a good time to me", said Larry.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Miss Edwards said we have to write a story tomorrow about one of the animals we saw. I'm going to write about an elephant!"

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Larry rubbed Joy's belly.

"How's my boy doing in there?", he asked.

"He's going to be a big healthy boy or either his mama is just getting fat", she joked.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Are you feeling alright sweetheart? You didn't say much at supper", he said.

"I feel fine. Just a little tired. I think I'll turn in early", said Joy.

"Don't worry, I'll make sure Arlene gets to bed", he said.

Picket Fences! Part 12



[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
After the disagreement with Larry that afternoon, Rhys went back across the street . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
He read the newspaper while . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The maid Jasmyn Carlson did what she was hired to do.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"I finished my work. Do you want me to stay and hangout?", she asked Rhys.

"Yeah sure. I think we can find something to do", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Oops! Jasmyn instantly changed into maternity clothes. Her maid's outfit was keeping her pregnancy from showing.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Rhys rubbed her belly.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

He was excited that she was pregnant with his baby.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys gave Jasmyn a romantic hug.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Just a few minutes later, Jasmyn started into labor.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

When the pains susided . . .
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

She delivered a beautful healthy baby boy.

The baby has tan skin, brown hair and grey eyes.

"Rhys, we have a son", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Jasmyn handed the baby to Rhys.

"What do you want to name him?", she asked.

"I want to name him Ryan after my father", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys gave the baby a bottle of milk and put him in his crib.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

When Rhys went back into the livingroom Jasmyn said "What am I going to do? I'm a NPC and it's no way I can keep the baby. He'll probably be taken by Social Services."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"No, he's the only family I got. He's not going to an orphanage", said Rhys, "I'll take care of him."

"I have to go now. I'll see you tomorrow! ", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Then Jasmyn walked out the door . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Got in her van and drove off.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Rhys sit on the couch and wondered, "What have I gotten myself into?"
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys took a quick shower and changed into a fresh shirt.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then he called Mary Lou.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Hello!", said Mary Lou.

"Mary Lou, this is Rhys. Can you come over?", he asked.

"Sure, I'll be there in a few minutes", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
When Mary Lou arrived she asked, "Why did you ask me over?"

"I need your help. You see, I got a baby and I'm not exactly sure what to do with him", said Rhys.

"Is it your baby?", she asked.

"Yeah. You wait right here and I'll go get him", he said.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Rhys went to his bedroom and returned with the baby. Then he handed him to Mary Lou.

"He's so little. When was he born?", she asked.

"This morning", said Rhys.

"What's his name?", she asked.

"I named him Ryan after my father", said Rhys.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"He's beautiful but he smells awful", she said.

"Yeah, I know. I won't sure how to give him a bath", said Rhys.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Mary Lou took the baby into the kitchen and put him in the sink.

"There you go Ryan. Doesn't that feel good?", she asked.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Now you smell as sweet as you look", she said.

She gave him a bottle of milk . . .
And put him in his crib for a nap.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then Mary Lou returned to the livingroom and sit on the couch . . .

"Rhys, who's your son's mama?", asked Mary Lou.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"My maid Jasmyn Carlson. She couldn't take him with her. She said he would probably go to Social Services. I won't going to let my son go to an orphanage", said Rhys.

"Jasmyn is one of the maid's from Service, right? I didn't think NPC's were able to have childern", said Mary Lou.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"I didn't either", said Rhys.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"I got to go home. Call me if you need me", said Mary Lou.

"Thank you Mary Lou", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Picket Fences! Part 13

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

After Mary Lou got home from Rhys Sawyer's place; she thought long and hard about whether or not to tell Joy that Rhys had a baby. Since it would be the newest gossip around town, she decided it was better if Joy heard it from her first.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Joy, can you come over?", she asked.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Sure, I'll be there in a few minutes", said Joy.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Joy walked in the front door a few minutes later.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

She went into the kitchen where she knew she would find Mary Lou.

"Your stomach is getting so big!", she said.

"I don't have much longer before the baby comes", said Joy.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Speaking of babies, Emily and Sam's twins grew up to toddlers yesterday". said Mary Lou.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Nancy is a real beauty. She looks a lot like Emily."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"And Nathan is a cutie. He doesn't favor Jimmy much though", said Mary Lou.

"Well, Jimmy looks more like Sam and Nathan must take after Emily's side of the family", said Joy.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"While we're on the subject of babies, there's something I have to tell you. Rhys called me this morning and asked me to come over to his place. Joy, he has a son with his maid", said Mary Lou.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Joy, are you alright?", Mary Lou asked concerned.

""Yes, I was just shocked for a minute", said Joy.

"Rhys decided to have the baby live with him because the maid is a NPC and she told him that Social Services would probably take him", said Mary Lou.

"Yeah, Rhys wouldn't want his son to grow up in an orphanage like he did", said Joy.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Thank you for telling me", said Joy.

"You're welcome. I thought it was better coming from me", said Mary Lou.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then Joy left to go home . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

To her house next door. . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Now that she knew why Rhys hadn't called her lately, she decided to call him.

"Hello Rhys."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Hey Beautiful! How are you doing ?"

"Why haven't you called to see how I'm doing? Were you too busy making a baby with your maid?", she said.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"That happened before I met you. She was just another woo hoo. I didn't think she'd have a baby', he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"That's the problem Rhys, you didn't think", she said and hung up.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

She relaxed on the bed and thought about Rhys. She wondered why he hadn't called her lately.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

She took a relaxing bubblebath. She could feel the tension in her body melting away.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Who am I to be telling him that he should have been more careful? Look what I got myself into", she thought to herself.

"Who am I to be telling Rhys HE didn't think? Look at the mess I've gotten myself into. I guess I'll call him back and apologize", she thought to herself.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

But before she could get to the telephone, she started into labor.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Larry and Arlene had arrived home from work and school. They ran into the bedroom just in time to . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Witness the birth of Kevin Lawrence Anderson. The tan skinned infant has brown hair and grey eyes.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"We have a son", said Joy, "I named him for my father and for you."

Picket Fences! Part 14

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The next morning after Larry and Arlene had left for work and school, Joy called Mary Lou.
"Mary Lou, I had my baby yesterday afternoon. I can hardly wait for you to see him", she said.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"If that's the case why didn't you call me right after he was born?", Mary Lou asked.
"I wanted to wait until Larry was gone before you saw him. I want you to tell me who you think Kevin looks more like. Larry or Rhys?", Joy explained.
"Alright, I'll be right over", said Mary Lou.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
A few minutes later Mary Lou walked in the front door.
"Alright, where's that beautiful son of yours?", she called.
"In the nursery", called Joy, "Come on in."
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Joy took Kevin out of his crib and handed him to Mary Lou.
"Well, do you think he looks like Larry or Rhys?", she asked already knowing the answer.
"Joy you might not want to hear this, but this baby and Rhys' son with his maid could pass for twins", said Mary Lou.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Well so far Larry hasn't noticed our son's resemblance to Rhys, but that might just be because he doesn't have any reason to suspect it", said Joy.
"Let's hope he or nobody else sees the babies side by side any time soon", said Mary Lou, "And try not to worry. Everything will be alright."
Then she hurried out the front door to go home.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
That afternoon when Arlene came home from school she was jumping for joy. She had gotten an A+ on the paper she wrote about the elephant at the zoo.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Then Larry came home a few minutes later. He had gotten promoted at work to Junior Executive.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
After he took a bath and changed clothes Larrry went down to the nursery. He took Kevin out of his crib and cuddled him. Larry was getting very attached to his son.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
After supper that night Joy called her mother (Joyce Evans) and invited her over to meet her new grandson.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Joyce arrived a few minutes later.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
She gave Joy a hug.
"I'm so happy for you and Larry", said Joyce, "And thank you for naming the baby after your father. He would be so happy."


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Larry brought Kevin into the livingroom to meet his grandma. Joyce talked to the baby.
"He's really a beautiful baby", she said.
"Yes, he's a chip off the old block", said Larry proudly.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Joyce sit with Arlene on the couch and snuggled. She thought her grandaughter might need some extra attention.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
After a couple of hours had passed, Joyce said, "It's getting late. I better be getting on home. I don't like being out after dark."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
After Joyce left Arlene was sitting between her parents on the couch.
"Mama, what's an affair?", she asked.
"Why in the world do you want to know that?", asked Joy.
"Mike was teasing me at school about you having one", Arlene answered.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Your mama is married to me!", Larry interrupted, "That Jones boy is just repeating gossip he heard from his parents. I bet he doesn't even know what it is himself."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Arlene, you need to learn not to pay any attention to gossip. Folks who gossip don't always know if it's true or not. Now forget about what Mike said and go on to bed", said Joy.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"I wonder why anybody would start a rumor about you of all people having an affar. Just goes to show how vindictive some people can be", said Larry, "The best thing we can do is just ignore it until new gossip replaces it, alright?"

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Then he gave Joy a romantic kiss before she could answer.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Across town at Buford Falls Church . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Pastor Woods called Rhys Sawyer . . .
"Rhys the tombstone for your grandmother came today. I'd like for you to come by to see if it's what you had in mind."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"I'm sure I'll like it. Thanks Pastor Woods. I'll be right over", said Rhys.

Picket Fences! Part 15


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Over at Buford Falls Church . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Pastor Woods was waiting for Rhys in the church cemetary.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
He showed him Grace's tombstone.
"I picked this one with the baby angel on it. I think Grace would like it and it has a special meaning for me in particular", he said, "I hope it's what you wanted."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"It's beautiful. Exactly what I had in mind", said Rhys.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Pastor, I can tell that it upsets you to talk about Grace. How well did you know my grandmother?", he asked.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Come sit down and I'll tell you, if you have time to listen to rantings of an old man ", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
" Rhys, the first time I saw Grace was when I took over as pastor of Buford Falls Church. I was fresh out of seminary and newly married to a girl I thought I loved. Grace came with her parents to every service. As time went on, Grace started stopping by the church to see me. We would just talk at first, but eventually we fell in love. After that things became more serious between us . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"I remember one afternoon in particular, Grace was sitting at the piano playing a hymn. She looked so lovely and played so beautifully."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"I stood behind her and watched her play for a few minutes. She must have sensed I was there . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Because she got up, came over to me and gave me a tender kiss."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"We sit there in the church and cuddled on one of the pews. We talked about how we'd like to get married after I divorced my wife. We both knew it was an impossible dream because if I divorced, that would have ended my ministry."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Then I gave Grace a romantic kiss and she kissed me back."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"And before we knew what was happening, we started making out and our lovemaking went too far."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Afterwards, I kissed Grace one last time . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"We never spoke of that afternoon again. We remained best friends, but that was all after that ", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"A short time later, Grace went to stay with her grandmother in Pleasantview for a few months. That must have been when your father was born and she gave him up for adoption. I didn't know I had a son until after Grace died and named you as her heir", said the pastor.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Now that we know about each other, I'd like for us to be friends", said Reverend Woods.
"I'd like that, too", said Rhys.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Is what I hear true, you have a son with your maid?", asked the pastor.
"Yes, I named him Ryan after my father", said Rhys.
"Please bring him by sometimes. I'd like to meet my great-grandson", said the pastor.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Reverand Woods gave Rhys a hug goodbye.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Then Rhys left to get home before the maid had to leave.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Grace, I told our grandson everything. I hope it was the right decision."

A few days later over at Joy Evans' house . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Joy went to the bathroom mirror to gussy up . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then she called Transpotation on the telephone.

"Please send a taxicab to 12 Greenway Drive."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

When the taxicab arrived she told the driver to take her to Moo's Mini Mart.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The taxicab let her off in front of the market.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

When Joyce entered the mart, she couldn't help but notice an extremely handsome man drinking a soda.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Joyce had come to the Mini Mart to shop and shop she would. She approuched the him and asked, "Excuse me, I need to get something out of that case. Would you please step aside?"

"Sure, anything you say beautiful", he answered.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"I appreciate the compliment young man but my name is Joyce, not beautiful", she said.

"My name is Rhys, not young man and you ARE beautiful", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Joyce finished her shopping and . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Paid the cashier.

"Thank you for shopping at Moo's Mini Mart", said the cashier.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys also picked up a few items.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Here you are Beautiful", he said, "Keep the change."

"Thank you Rhys, you're the best", the cashier said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Joyce went outside and used the public telephone to call Transpotation.

"I need a taxicab to take me home", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
She sit on the bench to wait for the taxicab.

"Would you like to go get something to eat?", asked Rhys.

"I've already called a taxicab to take me home", said Joyce.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"You're in my way again", said Joyce.

"I thought you might need some company and I know I need some lunch", said Rhys.

"I think maybe I do", she said, "I make a pretty tasty grilled cheese sandwich."
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
When the taxicab arrived, Joyce and Rhys got in.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The taxicab driver took them to Joyce's house.

"You have a nice little place here", said Rhys.

"Thank you, I like it", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Sit down at the table. I'll have the sandwiches ready in a few minutes", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Where did you live before you came to Buford Falls?", asked Joyce.

"I'm from Pleasantview", said Rhys.

"That's a lovely little town. My late husband's family was from there", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"I didn't get to see a whole lot of the town or get to know the people. I spent most of my life there in the orphanage. I had just became an adult, right before I moved here", he said.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"I hope you'll find Buford Falls to be more to your liking. You don't sound like you had too good of a life in Pleasantview", she said.

"It wasn't all bad. The little time I spent there after I grew up was quite enjoyable", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Then Rhys noticed the portrait hanging on the wall over a urn on the table.

"Was he your husband?", he asked.

"Yes, that's Kevin. That portrait was painted when he was young", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"How long have you been a widow?", asked Rhys.

"A little over four years now", said Joyce.

"I would think you get pretty lonely sometimes without your husband", said Rhys.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Yes, it does get lonesome, but having my daughter and grandchildern living close by helps", said Joyce.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"You don't look old enough to have a grown daughter, much less grandchildern", he said surprised.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Hey, look at the time . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"I got to be getting on home", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"I hope you can come again when you're able to stay longer", she said.

"Sure, it's just that this is the first time I left my son with a nanny", he said.

"Yes, of course. I understand, I was a young parent one time myself", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Joyce gave Rhys a tender kiss goodbye.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The he left to go home.

Picket Fences! Part 17


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Rhys came home from Joyce's house . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
He went into the nursery to check on Ryan. He still couldn't believe his son was already a toddler.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys paid the nanny and gave her a tip.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Melvissa Shankel, the nanny from Service had surprisingly taken good care of Ryan. Rhys decided he would be using her on a regular basis.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys got into bed . . .


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
And was soon sleeping like a baby himself.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The next morning Jasmyn Carlson arrived for work as usual.
She went into the house and walked down to the nursery.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Ryan was awake and needed some attention.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Jasmyn took him out of his crib. She gave him a family kiss and talked to him.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
She took him into the bathroom, gave him a bath and dressed him in his everyday clothes.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
She put the toddler in his highchair and gave him a bowl of oatmeal.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
After Ryan finished eating . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Jasmyn put him in his room. He was being entertained playing with the lighthouse.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Jasmyn went into the kitchen area and started doing the work she was paid to do.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys was finally getting up.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
He saw Jasmyn in the kitchen.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Good morning Beautiful. Is our son awake?", he asked.

"Yes, he's been bathed, fed and he's in his room playing", she answered.

"How about me and you playing later?", Rhys asked.

"Sure, I'll stay and hang out after I finish my work", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Then he gave her a romantic kiss.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
He joined Ryan playing with the lighthouse.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
He changed Ryan's diaper.
"You still smell awful", Rhys told him.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
He gave the toddler another bath.
"You've had two baths today and Daddy hasn't even had one", said Rhys.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
He carried Ryan into the livingroom and talked to him.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
While Rhys was doing his exercises, Ryan was trying to do some, too.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"You look like you're ready for a nap, how about it?", said Rhys.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
He got a bottle out of the refrigerator and gave it to Ryan.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Ryan finished the bottle and took off down the hall to his bedroom.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys put him in his crib and gave him a nite-nite kiss.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys looked out the window . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Then he took a quick shower.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
And "gussied up" in front of the bathroom mirror.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
He went out in the backyard where he had seen Jasmyn earlier. He strutted over to her . . .


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
And said . . .
"Let's go inside and play."


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
At the Anderson house across the street, Joy and Larry were having a birthday party for their son Kevin.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
When it was time for the infant to grow up, Larry brought him to his birthday cake.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
They all joined in the celebration.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"It's time for you to grow up", said Larry.
Then he did the "baby toss" and . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Kevin grew up to a toddler who looked a whole lot like their neighbor Rhys Sawyer, who lives across the street.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Joy was sitting on the couch with her mother, who had been invited to the party.

"Kevin reminds me of someone, but I don't quite remember who", said Joyce.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Maybe one of your distance relatives?", said Mary Lou

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"No, I don't think it's that. Maybe it'll come to me, once I think about it. My memory just isn't as good as it used to be", Joyce said.

Picket Fences! Part 18

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Later that same night Joy received a telephone call from Mary Lou . . .
"Hi Mary Lou. What's wrong?", she asked.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Julie has the German measles. I thought I better call and let you know since she was with Arlene at the party this afternoon", said Mary Lou.

"Thanks for letting me know", said Joy, "Is Julie alright?"

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"She's not feeling that bad, but poor thing is broken out really bad", said Mary Lou.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"I called Emily to let her know about Julie and to ask if Jimmy had them. She said he had them when they lived in Veronaville. After I talked to Emily, Betty called to tell me that Judy and Mike both have them", said Mary Lou.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Who was that on the telephone?", Larry asked.

"It was Mary Lou", said Joy.

"I figured as much", said Larry.

"She called to tell me that Julie has German measles. I suspect Arlene will be broken out soon. I was wondering if Kevin should stay wilh my mom until Arlene's past the contagious period", said Joy.

"I think that's a good idea. No need for him to get sick if he doesn't have to", said Larry.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Hello Mom, do you think you can keep Kevin at your house for a few days? German measles is going around school and Arlene will probably come down with them. We'd like to keep Kevin away from her so he won't get them, too", explained Joy.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"I guess I can manage him for a few days. I still got your old crib and that Noah's Ark you use to love to play with", said Joyce, "Sure, bring him on over."


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"You're going to grandma's house Kevin. Want that be fun?", Joy told the toddler, "Tell Daddy bye-bye."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Joy walked the short distance to her mother's house.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Now try not to spoil your grandson too much while he's here", said Joy.

"It might be hard, but I'll try", said Joyce.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Thank you Mom", said Joy.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"You be a good boy for Grandma, Okay?", said Joy.

"Okay!", said Kevin.

She gave him a "Family Kiss" goodbye . . .


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
And left to go back home.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Joyce sit on the floor with Kevin and played with the toy xylophone.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Whenever he hit the bars with the mallet he would laugh. Seeing the toddler's beautiful smile jogged Joyce's memory . . .


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
She remembered seeing that same smile a few days ago.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Her grandson looked like Rhys Sawyer, the nice young man she met in the Mini Mart. She didn't like jumping to conclusions, but she had heard the gossip around town about Joy cheating on Larry.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Hello Rhys, can you come over? I'd like for you to bring Ryan. My grandson is spending a few days with me and they might enjoy playing together", said Joyce.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Yeah, sure. Ryan ain't played with any other kids. He might enjoy it", said Rhys, "We'll be there in a few minutes."


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys arrived at Joyce's house a few minutes later. He had forgotten to ask Joyce how old her grandson was, but hopefully not too much older than Ryan.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
When Rhys came into the house, he was relieved to see a toddler in Joyce's arms.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"This is my grandson Kevin", she said.

"I think Ryan and Kevin are about the same age", she said, "Let's put them down over there with the Noah's Ark."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The two little boys played together while Joyce and Rhys chatted.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Rhys, when you were here the other day, I forgot to ask what street you live on", said Joyce.

"I live in the old Sawyer place on Shadetree Lane. Grace Sawyer was my grandmother", he said.

"I remember Grace. I use to speak to her whenever I visited my daughter. She and Grace were neighbors", said Joyce.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"My daughter is Joy Anderson. Do you know her and her husband Larry?", asked Joyce.

"Yeah, I know Joy and Larry. I didn't know they had a son though", he said.

"Rhys, how well do you know my daughter?", asked Joyce.

"Joy came over with her friend Mary Lou to welcome me to the neighborhood when I moved in", said Rhys.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Rhys, I don't think you're telling me the whole truth", she said.

"What is it you want to know Joyce?", he asked.

"I've heard gossip around town that Joy was having an affair and from the looks of my grandson, I think it was with you", said Joyce.

"Yes, she met me a couple of times at community lots and we went on a picnic. We only did woo hoo the one time when she came over my place", said Rhys.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"You're Kevin's father. Look at him. He has your brown hair and blue-grey eyes. Rhys, he has your smile", said Joyce.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys went over and played with Kevin. He tickled him and made him laugh.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Then Rhys picked up the little boy.
"You do kinda look like me. I wonder why your mama didn't tell me about you", he said, knowing the toddler didn't understand.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys hugged his son goodbye before he put him back down on the floor.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Thank you Joyce for letting me meet my son", said Rhys.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Rhys, don't let Joy know I told you", said Joyce.

"I won't. She's going to tell me herself", he said.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Then he picked up Ryan, walked out the door and left to go home.

Picket Fences! Part 19.1


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
At the Anderson house, Joy and Larry's daughter Arlene has recovered from German measles. She missed three days of school but since she's an A+ student, her grades didn't suffer too badly.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
She looked happy as she got on the schoolbus. Today is her birthday and this afternoon her family
and friends will watch her grow up into a teenager at her birthday party.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
A few minutes after Arlene left for school, her Larry's carpool arrived to take him to work.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Joy called her mother Joyce . . .
"Mom, Arlene is over the measles. She went back to school today. Do you need me to come get Kevin or can you bring him home?"


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"I'll bring him home this afternoon when I come to Arlene's party. That will give you the day free to get things ready", said Joyce.
"Thanks Mom. I'll see you this afternoon then", said Joy.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
As soon as Joy hung up from talking to Joyce the telephone starting ringing.
"Hello", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Joy, I need to talk to you. Can you meet me somewhere? How about the zoo?", asked Rhys.
"Alright, I'll be there in a few minutes. I'll meet you inside", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Joy arrived at the zoo shortly.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
And Rhys walked in the front entrance a few minutes afterwards.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
They went over to the benches to sit down.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"I haven't seen you for awhile. How have you been? You were pretty upset the last time I talked to you on the telephone", he said.
"I was, but I thought about it and decided what happened between you and your maid was before we got involved", she said.
"So you forgive me?", he asked.
"Yes, I'm alright with you having a son with your maid", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Joy, why didn't you tell me YOU had a son?", he asked.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"There really wasn't any reason I should", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Joy, isn't me being his father reason enough?", asked Rhys.
"Rhys, Larry's his father", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys stood up and shouted,"You're lying!"

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Then he walked away.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
He called a taxicab.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
When he got off the telephone Joy was waiting for him.
"Rhys, please let me explain", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"After I talked to you that afternoon, I went into labor and Kevin was born. Then Larry and Arlene came home and Larry thought the baby was his. He was so proud and happy. I didn't have the heart to tell him you were Kevin's father. It would break his heart if I told him now. Please understand", she cried.
"Alright, I'll go along with your little charade for now, but I want to be able to see my son and get to know him", said Rhys.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Then he got into the waiting taxicab.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Later that afternoon back over at Joy's house . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Daddy, how much longer do I have to wait before my party starts?", asked Arlene.
"As soon as Grandma Joyce brings Kevin home and the other guests get here", said Larry.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Joyce brought Kevin home a little later.
"He's such a good boy. It was a pleasure having him", said Joyce.
"Did you have fun at Grandma's house?", asked Joy.
"Un huh. Play Ry", said Kevin.
"Isn't that cute? He's trying to talk", said Joy.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The guests had arrived and were waiting for Arlene to blow out the candles on her birthday cake.
{LtoR: Peter Edwards, Jimmy Martin, Mike Jones, Judy Jones, Nancy Martin and Julie Edwards.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Arlene made a wish and blew out the candles.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Everyone cheered and wished her happy birthday!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Arlene started to grow up and . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
She grew up into a very pretty teenager.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Arlene flirted and played with Jimmy.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
And Jimmy's little brother Nathan was fighting with Julie.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Nathan has grown up into a cute, but angry little boy.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
While everyone was occupied outside, Joyce went inside to call Rhys.
"Hello Rhys, it's Joyce. Since I'm in the neighborhood, would you like some company?", she asked.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Sure, come on over", he said.
"I'll be there as soon as I say my goodbyes here", she said.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Arlene, I'm glad I was here to see you grow up. I just wish your grandfather could have been here", said Joyce.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"I'm glad you were here, too", said Arlene., as Joyce gave her a hug.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Mom you don't have to hurry off. Come in and have a cup of coffee", said Joy.
"No, I better be getting on home. You know I don't like to be out after dark", said Joyce.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Bye Mom", said Joy.
"Bye sweetheart", said Joyce.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Then Joyce walked across the street to Rhys' place.

Picket Fences! Part 19.2

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Joyce walked across the street to Rhys' place . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
When she entered the house . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys came down the hall to greet her.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
He gave her a romantic hug.
"I've been thinking about you ever since you left the other day", she said.
"Have you been thinking what I hope you have?", he asked.
"I think you know", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys surprised her when he picked her up in his arms and carried her down the hall . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
To his bedroom and laid her on his bed. They made out.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Then in the middle of their lovemaking Rhys stopped and started to get up.
"Wait, where are you going?", asked Joyce.
"Ryan's crying. I'll be back in a few minutes", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys took Ryan out of his crib and took the toddler to the potty.
"Now I want you to go back to sleep. Alright?", said Rhys.
"Sure Daddy", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys returned to the bedroom where Joyce was waiting.
"Was he alright?", she asked.
"Sure, he just had to go to the toilet", said Rhys.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Now where were we?", he asked.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys gave Joyce a romantic kiss.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Do you want me Joyce?", he asked.
"What woman in her right mind wouldn't", she answered.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Woo Hoo!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"You want to spend the night?", he asked.

"I'd like nothing better, but I better not. I'd have a hard time explaining if anybody was to see me coming out of your house in the morning", she said.

"You sound like somebody else I know", he laughed.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"You're welcome to come back again when you're in the neighborhood", he said.

"Thank you. I might just take you up on the offer", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Bye Rhys. It was fun", said Joyce.
"Yeah, for me, too", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Picket Fences! Part 20

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Across the street at Joy's house the same night . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Arlene offered to put her little brother Kevin to bed. She figured it would be good practice for when she got married and had childern of her own.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Even though she and Jimmy Martin had been friends since they were toddlers, she suddenly found herself daydreaming about him being more than just a friend.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Well, our little girl has grown up into quite a beautiful young lady", said Larry.
"Yes, she has", said Joy, "Doesn't it make us seem old being parents of a teenager."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"We're not THAT old. We just got started young. We weren't much more than teenagers ourselves when we got married", he said.
"I know, but I could hardly wait to be a wife and mother", she said.
"I hope you don't regret getting married so young. I know I never have", he said.
"No I don't regret it. You're the best husband anyone could want", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Larry pulled her into his lap and gave her a romantic kiss.
"Let's go inside and relax on our bed, alright?", he said.
"Alright", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"It's been a long time since we've done this", he said.
"I know. You've been very patient", she said.
"I realize the baby has taken a lot of your time and energy", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
He gave her a romantic kiss.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
And when Larry asked to do woo hoo, Joy said yes!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Larry scooted up close behind her and . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
They both soon fell asleep. Joy started dreaming about . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The time she and Rhys danced over at his place . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The time she agreed to meet him at the coffee shop . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The time they kissed in the hottub at the zoo . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The one time they did woo hoo in his bed and she got pregnant with his child . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The time they went on a picnic in the woods and . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The day Kevin was born and the look on Larry's face . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
And the last time she and Rhys met at the zoo and he was so angry!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Joy woke up and realized all that had happened wasn't a dream. How had she allowed her lust for Rhys to replace her love for Larry? She was a grown woman and had been acting like a silly schoolgirl.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Joy lay back down after she decided she would come to grips with the situation and handle it in a mature manner. She slept peacefully the rest of the night.

Over at Joyce's house . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
When she arrived home from Rhys' place, she starting feeling really bad.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
She felt several pains in her chest.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
She called the hospital and talked to Dr. Brian.
"Doctor I'm having pains in my chest and I'm feeling really bad", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"It's probably just a bad case of indigestion, but you better come on in tonight and let me take a look at you", he said.
"Alright, I'll be there in a few minutes", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
She sit back down.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
She needed to go to the hospital right away, but she wasn't able to get up off the couch.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The next morning over at Rhys' place . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
His maid Jasmyn Carlson came to work as usual. When she walked into the kitchen she got a surprise.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Today is our son's birthday and he's been waiting for his mama to come so he can growup", said Rhys.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys brought Ryan to his birthday cake . . .
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
He helped him blow out the candles and when he put him down . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Ryan grew up into a cute child who looked even more like his daddy.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Thank youl", said Rhys, "That little boy is the best gift anyone has ever given me."

"You're welcome and believe me, it was my pleasure", she said, "Do you want me to stay and hang out after I finish my work?"

"No, not today. I got something to do", said Rhys.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The schoolbus came for Ryan at 8:30 AM. He was happy to go to school even if it was his birthday today.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Jasmyn finished her work and left soon after Ryan went to school.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys called Joy . . .
"Joy, can I come over to see Kevin today?", he asked.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"I guess it'll be alright, but just for a little while. Come in the backdoor so the neighbors won't see you, alright?", she said.

"Sure, anything you say. I'll be there in a few minutes". said Rhys.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Don't let Kevin know who you are because he's starting to repeat everything he hears", said Joy.
"Alright, I'll go by your rules. I just want to be able to see my son", said Rhys.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The telephone was ringing and Joy went to answer it.
"Hey Kevin", said Rhys.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Hello!", said Joy.
"Joy, this is Dr. Brian, your mother was admitted to the hospital last night. She was pretty bad, but she's stable now, he said"

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"What's wrong with her?", asked Joy.
"She suffered a mild heart attack", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Thank you doctor. I'll be right there", she said.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"He seems to like you and doesn't mind you holding him", said Joy, "Would you mind staying with him while I go to the hospital to see my mother?"
"Sure", said Rhys, "Is your mama going to be alright?"
"Yes, I think so. I just want to go see her for a little while", said Joy.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Joy hurried out of the house to go to the hospital.

Picket Fences! Part 21

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Joy soon arrived at Buford Falls Hospital and went into Joyce's room. Her mother

looked so pale, her skin almost blending into the bedsheets.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Joy sit in the chair beside the bed.

"Mom, how are you feeling?", she asked.

"Tired", said Joyce.

"It's probably the medicine the doctor gave you", said Joy, "You'll feel better soon."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Dr. Brian entered the room.
"You mother needs to rest. I've given her something to make her sleep", said Dr. Brian, "She'll feel better in a few days."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"I'm so relieved to hear that. I don't know what I would do if anything happened to her", said Joy.

"There's not really anything you can do for her here. You need to go on home. Come back tomorrow afer she and you both have had some rest", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
So Joy did what the doctor ordered and left to go home.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Meanwhile, over at Joy's house . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys and Kevin were in the nursery playing with the Noah's Ark . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
When Arlene came home from school.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
She got a snack and turned on the television. She hadn't even noticed that her mother wasn't home.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys put Kevin in his crib for his afternoon nap.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
He walked into the livingroom where Arlene was reading a book.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
She looked up when she heard footsteps.

"Hey, aren't you Mr. Sawyer who lives across the street?", she asked.

"Yeah that's me", he said, "But you can call me Rhys."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"What are you doing in my house?", she asked.

"Your mother had to go someplace and asked me to stay with Kevin", he explained. (He didn't tell her where Joy had gone. He figured it was better to let Joy tell her about her grandmother herself.)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Hey, look at the time", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"I got to go home", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Rhys left to get home before the schoolbus dropped off Ryan . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
And Arlene suddenly found herself daydreaming about her goodlooking neighbor across the street.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Just a little while after Rhys got home Ryan came home from school.

The telephone started ringing and Ryan answered it.

"Hello", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Ryan, this is Mary. What are you doing?"

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"I just got home from school. I ain't had time to do nothing yet", he said.

"Me neither", she said, "Well, I'll see you at school tomorrow. Bye!"

"Bye Mary", he said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Who was that?", asked Rhys.

"Just some girl from my class", said Ryan.

"What did she want?", asked Rhys.

"She didn't want nothing. I don't know why she even called me", he said.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Maybe she just wants to be friends", said Rhys.

"But she's a girl Dad", said Ryan.

"So, some of my best friends are girls", said Rhys.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Dad, Mary's best friend Heather told me that Mary thought I was a drooly guy. Is that good?", asked Ryan.

"A drooly guy means you're cute. I reckon that's why she likes you so much", said Rhys.
(drooly guy is 1940's slang for cute guy)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Dad, girls are silly, ain't they?", Ryan asked.

"Yeah, I guess they are, but it makes it easier for us drooly guys ", laughed Rhys.

"Makes what easier?", asked Ryan.

"Ask we again when you're a teenager", said Rhys.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Back over at Joy's house, she has returned home from the hospital.

On a whim she decided to cut her hair and try a new style she saw in the lastest issue of McCall's magazine.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Now that she thought more about it, she wasn't sure if she liked it or not. Well, she'd just have to live with it.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Where did you go today?", asked Arlene, "Rhys said you had to go somewhere, but he didn't say where", said Arlene.

"You mean Mr. Sawyer?", asked Joy.

"He said I could call him Rhys", Arlene said.

"Grandma is in the hospital. I went to see her. Don't worry, she's going to be fine in a few days", said Joy.

"Thank goodness", said Arlene.

"I'm sorry I was late getting home. I hope Rhys didn't frighten you by being here", said Joy.

"No, he didn't frighten me Mom. I knew who he was. I've seen him around the neighborhood", said Arlene.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Arlene, will you do me a favor and not mention to your father that Rhys was here?", said Joy, "He might get the wrong idea."

"Yeah, sure Mom. Mum's the word", said Arlene.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Then Larry came home from work and . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Kevin ran over to him and asked for attention. Larry gave the toddler a "Family Kiss" and talked to him.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"I'll give Kevin his bath and put him to bed", said Arlene.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Tell Mama and Daddy goodnight Kevin", she said.

"Sure", said Kevin, "Nite nite."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
After Arlene finished Kevin's bath . . .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
She held him up to the mirror, so he could see himself.

"He doesn't look much like my brother", she thought to herself, noticing how different she and Kevin looked.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Then she put Kevin in his crb and kissed him goodnight.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Larry, my mom is in the hospital", said Joy, "Dr. Brian said she had a slight heart attack."

"Is she going to be alright?", he asked.

"Yes, I think so. When I went over there today, Dr, Brian said if she stayed in the hospital a few days and rested, she'd feel better", said Joy.

"Well, that's good. I'm glad she's going to be alright", he said.

"I need to call MaryLou and ask if she can stay with Kevin tomorrow", said Joy.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"MaryLou, my mom's in the hospital. She had a slight heart attack. Will you stay with Kevin tomorrow while I go visit her?"

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Of course, you know I will", said MaryLou, "I'll come over as soon as Julie leaves for school. And if there's anything else I can do, let me know."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Is she going to be able to stay again tomorrow?", asked Larry, presuming that MaryLou had stayed with Kevin today.

"It was only until Arlene came home from school. MaryLou won't mind staying again", said Joy, going along with his presumption.

"You must be tired, I'll order a pizza for supper, so you won't have to cook", said Larry.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Larry called Delivery and ordered a pizza.

"That will be $40", she said.

"That will be fine", said Larry.

"Thank you. Your pizza will be there shortly", she said.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Arlene accepted the delivery when the girl came.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"I can probably get off work early tomorrow, if you need me to go with you to the hospital", said Larry.

"No, that's alright. You can visit Mom when she goes home. We really can't afford for you to take the time off", said Joy.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"Is Grandma going to be able to stay by herself when she does go home?", asked Arlene.

"I don't know. I'll ask Dr. Brian tomorrow", said Joy.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Joy and Larry went to bed and were soon sound asleep.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
But Arlene laid awake until the wee hours of the morning, thinking about the drooly guy across the street.
