Picket Fences! Part 37.1

Over at Claudia's house . . .

Today is her son Noah's birthday.

She called Rhys . . .
"Today is our son's birthday. I didn't know if you remembered or not", she said.

"Sure I remembered, but I didn't know if you wanted me to come over", said Rhys.

"You and I might not always agree on everything, but I'd like for you to be here for Noah", she said.

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

"Good, I'll get him ready", she said.

Rhys arrived a few minutes later.

"Noah will be gald to see you", said Claudia.

"Does that mean you won't?", said Rhys.

"What do you think?"", said Claudia.

When he walked into the house he picked up Noah and gave him a hug.
"Happy birthday son!", he said.

"You can take him to his birthday cake", said Claudia.

"You ready to grow up little buddy?", said Rhys.

"Sure", said Noah.

Rhys took Noah over to his cake and Claudia blew the birthday horn to celebrate.

He helped the toddler blow out the candles.

Rhys put Noah down on the floor, he did the "toddler dance"and grew up into a cute child. He looks a lot like his two half-brothers Ryan and Kevin.

Noah grabbed a big slice of his birthday cake, then took his plate to the kitchen when he finished eating. .

Shannan came home from her job as a Management Firm Representative in the Film Industry and grabbed a slice.

While Rhys and Noah were playing with the toy ship . . .

"Shannan received a telephone call from Jonathan.

"Hey sweetheart. I'm off work tonight. Can you come over?", he asked.

"Yes, I'd love to see you. I'll be right there", she said.

"I'm going to Jonathan's house. I'll probably be late, so don't wait up", she told Claudia.

"It won't be much longer before you can move in", said Claudia.

"Yes, this time next Saturday, I'll be Mrs. Jonathan Henry", said Shannan.

Then she changed into her everyday clothes and left to go to Jonathan's.

Claudia went into Noah's bedroom . . .
"Our son went to bed without being told", she said.
"He's a good little boy. You're doing a good job of raising him", said Rhys,."I guess I'll be going on home, unless you want me to stay."

"I wouldn't mind some company tonight", she said.

"In that case, let's get comfortable on your bed", said Rhys.

"Now that Noah is a child, do you think he could come stay at my place some weekends? I'd like for him and Ryan to become friends", said Rhys.

"I think that might be a good idea. Afterall, they're all each other has", she said.

"Claudia, there's something I need to tell you", said Rhys.

"You see, when I first moved to Buford Falls, I met someone and . . . well, to make a long story short, we had a baby", he said.

"You mean Ryan's mama?", asked Claudia.

"No, I mean Joy Anderson. Kevin's my son, not Larry's", he said.

"I kinda suspected, does Larry know?", she asked..

"Joy told him when Kevin was a child. Me and Larry talked about it and came to an understanding. He let Kevin come to my place every other Saturday as long as I promised not to tell him I'm his father", said Rhys.

"Joy's a lucky woman to have such an understanding husband", said Claudia.

"Yeah, well anyway, if you let Noah come to my place on the Saturdays Kevin is there, then all three of my boys will get know each other better", he said.

Then Rhys gave her a romantic kiss . . .

And they madeout.

"Rhys, you want to do woo hoo?", she asked.

"What do you think?", he said.

Later . . .

"I love you Rhys", said Claudia.

"I know, but you deserve better", he said.

"There isn't any better", she said.

Rhys stayed until Claudia went to sleep.

Then when he started to leave . . .

Noah came into the bedroom and gave him a hug.
"Bye Dad. I love you", he said.
"Goodnight son. I love you, too", said Rhys.

Then Noah crawled into his mama's bed and went back to sleep.

And Rhys left to go home.

Picket Fences! Part 37.2

A few days later at Mary Lou's house . . .

The family and their best friends celebrated their youngest daughter Carrie's birthday. Peter brought the toddler to her birthday cake.

He helped her blow out the candles.

When he placed her on the floor, Carrie did the "toddler dance" and . . .

Grew up into a cute child who favors her mama Mary Lou.

Kevin grabbed Carrie and gave her a "noogie".

"Ow it hurts!", she screamed.

"What did you do that for?", she cried.

"Because I wanted to", laughed Kevin.

When they were in the livingroom a few minutes later, Kevin got mad, but not at Carrie.

He was watching Larry flirting with Joy and was mad at Larry.

(As all Simmers know, a Sim child gets upset when they see their parent doing romantic actions with someone other than their other parent)

Kevin gave Larry a dirty look as he walked out of the room.

Carrie was playing with her doll and was unconcerned with a silly boy.

Kevin went outside and sit in the swing on the backporch.

Julie came out and sit down beside him.
"What's wrong with you?", she asked

"I don't know. It sounds stupid, but when I saw my dad flirting with my mom, I got mad at him", said Kevin.

"Whenever I see my mom and dad doing stuff like that, I feel happy. I know they love each other and will stay together forever", said Julie.

"See, that's how I should feel, but I don't. It don't make no sense for me to feel this way."

"I think you should tell your mom how you feel. Talking to her about it might help and it certainly can't hurt!". said Julie.

"I'll wait until after Arlene's wedding tomorrow. Mom's got enough on her mind already", said Kevin.

Picket Fences! Part 40.1

At Rhys' place . . .

The weekend had ended and Rhys' three sons were off to school.

The schoolbus will take his son Noah home to his mama this afternoon.

His son Kevin will go to his home across the street.

And his son Ryan is the only one who will be dropped off here.

After entertaining his sons all weekend, Rhys was ready for some lunch and some adult companionship. He went to the telephone and ordered a pizza.

The pizza delivery girl Lauren Reeves soon arrived.

Rhys accepted the order.

He took the pizza around back to the patio and asked Lauren to join him.

"How long have you been delivering pizzas?", asked Rhys.

"You know something, I've never thought about it before. I don't remember doing anything else", she said.

After they finished eating she asked Rhys if he wanted her to stay and hangout. He said yes and they went inside.

Rhys sit down on the sofa and asked her to join.

They cuddled . . .

They madeout.

"Let's go relax on my bed", he said.

"Alright", said Lauren.

Rhys relaxed on his bed and asked her to join.

He gave her a romantic kiss.

"You want to do woo hoo?", asked Rhys.

"YES!", she answered.

Afterwards . . .

Lauren and Rhys took a nap.

Lauren woke up, got out of bed . . .

And went over to the window and was looking out.

Rhys woke up and came over to where she was standing.

"What's the matterl?", he asked.

"I don't usually jump into bed with my customers. There's just something about you . . .", she said.

"Whatever it is I'm glad I've got it", he said.

Then Rhys gave her a romantic hug . . .

Then Lauren left still puzzled by what had happened.

Meanwhile over at the church . . .

Rev. Woods has an unexpected visitor.

"May I help you?", Joseph asked the teenager.

"I'm looking for someone. I was hoping you might know where he lives", said to boy.

"If he's a member of my congregation I probably do", he said.

"His name is Jonathan Henry. That's him in this snapshot with my mom", the boy said, "He's my dad."

The snapshot was of Jonathan and a pretty blonde girl.

"Yes, I know Jonathan. He and his wife are members of the church", said Joseph, "Come with me to the parsonage and I'll telephone him."

"Who should I tell him is looking for him?", asked Joseph.

"My name's Nathan Jordan, but he won't know me anyway", he answered.

"Jonathan, this is Rev. Woods. Can you come to the parsonage? There's someone here who wants to see you?"

"Sure, I'm be right over."

After Joseph talked to Jonathan on the telephone, he looked at Nathan and said"He's on his way over."

Jonathan soon arrived and walked into the paronage.

"Hello pastor, where's the person who wants to see me?", asked Jonathan.

"He's waiting for you in my study, but there's something I need to tell you before you see him", said Joseph.

"You sound kinda serious. What is it?", asked Jonathan.

"This person is a teenage boy who thinks you're his father", said Joseph.

"I ain't got no kids!", said Jonathan.

"That very well may be, but I think you should listen to what the boy has to say. Nathan, that's his name, seems to be pretty sure about it", said Joseph.

The preacher called Nathan over and introduced him to Jonathan.

"Alright, tell me what makes you think I might be your father", said Jonathan.

"My mom told me just before she died", said Nathan.

"What was her first name?", said Jonathan.

"Her name was Elizabeth. That's her in this picture with you", said Nathan.

"Yeah, I remember her now. I rented a room from her folks for a couple of years", Jonathan said.

"When's your birthday?", he asked the boy.

"April 5th", said Nathan.

"Yeah, that's about right. I reckon I am your father", said Jonathan.

Picket Fences! Part 40.2

Over at the church . .

"Are you going to take me home with you?", asked Nathan.

"Yeah, I reckon so. Let me call my wife before she goes to work", he said.

Jonathan used the telephone in the study to call Shannan.
"Sweetheart, I'm bringing a houseguest home. I'll explain when I get home", he said.

"Well . . . it's kinda short notice. I wish you had let me know sooner."

"I'm sorry but I just found out myself", said Jonathan, "We'll be there in a few minutes.

"Did your wife get mad when you told her you were bringing me home?", asked Nathan.

"No, she's pretty understanding", said Jonathan. "At least I hope she is", he thought to himself.

"Thank you Rev. Woods", said Jonathan.

Then Jonathan left with his son to go home.

"Wow, this is where you live! This is a cool place", said Nathan.

Shannan was sitting on the sofa . . .
"Sweetheart, I want you to meet someone", said Jonathan.

"Shannan, this is Nathan Jordan. Nathan, my wife Shannan", said Jonathan.

"I'm glad to meet you Mrs. Henry", said Nathan.

"You can call me Shannan", she said, "Mrs. Henry makes me feel so old."

"The guestroom is all ready for you. You can put your things in there", she said.

"Thank you but I ain't got no things", said Nathan.

"Oh, well . . . alright", she said.

"You go see your room while I explain things to my wife", said Jonathan.

"Jonathan, who is that boy?", she asked.

"Come sit down and I'll explain", he said.

"Nathan's my son. His mother and I were friends, when I lived in Pleasantview. I swear I didn't know he existed until today", said Jonathan.

"Where's his mother now?", asked Shannan.

"Apparently she died recently. I didn't get a chance to ask Nathan what happened", he said.

"Jonathan, are you sure you're his father?", asked Shannan.

"Yeah, I'm sure. I rented a room from Elizabeth's folks right after I left the orphanage. She and I were both young and . . . well you can guess the rest. Besides that, I was her first woo hoo. I found my own place and moved out shortly afterwards. She never contacted me to tell me she was pregnant", Jonathan explained.

"I love you Jonathan and I would have married you whether you had a child or not. We both wanted childern, so you having Nathan now has given us a head start", she said.

"I didn't think it was possible, but I love you even more now for accepting my son as your own", he said.

Then Shannan's carpool arrived to pick her up to take her to work.

She hurriedly changed into her business suit and ran to get in.

Nathan was relaxing on the bed in his room when he heard Jonathan calling him.

"You're going to be living here from now on. We're going shopping and buy you some school clothes and anything else you need", said Jonathan.

Jonathan called Transpotation and ordered a taxicab.

When they got in, Jonathan told the driver to take them to City Clothing on Main Street.

Jonathan and Nathan browzed through the clothes on the racks . . .

"I found some I like, but I need to try them on", said Nathan.

Nathan took the clothes and headed to the changing booth.

When he stepped out of the booth and looked in the mirror, he said "How about these threads?"

"Yeah, they look boss!", said Jonathan.

"You sure you got enough bread to pay for all this?", asked Nathan.

"Don't worry, you got a rich keeper", said Jonathan.

(Note: 1950's slang - threads means clothes, boss means great, bread means money and keeper means parent)

After Nathan picked out a few more outfits for school, a formal suit for church, some pajamas and underwear, Jonathan paid the cashier.

"Keep the change", he said.

"Thanks Jonathan, you're the best", she said.

Then he called Transpotation to take them to the Pizza Parlor.

Nathan and Jonathan got in the taxicab.

When they arrived at the Pizza Parlor, Nathan asked "How come you're so hip?"

"You mean "someone in the know?", said Jonathan.

"Yeah that", he said.

"I'm a Professional Party Guest. I get paid for being "hip", said Jonathan.

"That's a "boss gig" (great job)!", said Nathan.

"Let's go in and get some pizza", said Jonathan.

"OK, I'm starving", said Nathan.

"Do your grandparents still live in Pleasantview?"

"They're dead. It had just been my mom and me for the past few years. Then when she got real sick, she showed me that picture of you and her and said "His name is Jonathan Henry and he lives in Buford Falls. I want you to go to him after I die, he's your dad. So that's what I did."

"Well, I was definitely surprised to find out I had a son. I'm not gonna lye to you, I wasn't too happy when the pastor told me. But now that I've had time to get use to the idea, I'm alright with it."

Across town at Joy's house. She answered the telephone and received some bad news.

"Joy, this is Dr. Brian. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but your mother was brought to the emergency room this afternoon. I'm sorry, it wasn't anything I could do to save her. Her heart was just too weak."

"What's wrong sweetheart?", asked Larry.

"That was Dr. Brian who called. My mom died this afternoon", said Joy.

"I'm sorry sweetheart", said Larry.

"Would you call Arlene and tell her? And call Rev. Woods about the funeral service. I don't think I can talk to anyone right now", said Joy.

"Alright, I'll call them", he said.

Larry called Rev. Woods . . .
"Pastor, this is Larry Anderson. Joy's mother Joyce Evans died today. Would you please make the arrangements?"

"Yes, I will. Please give Joy my condolances."

Then he called Arlene . . .
"Arlene I have some bad news. Your grandma died this afternoon."

"Tell Mom I'm so sorry and I'll see her at the funeral. Give her my love."

"Arlene, what's wrong?", Jimmy asked.

"That was my dad on the telephone. My grandma died this afternoon", she said.

"I'm so sorry", he said.

"I love you Jimmy", she said.

"I love you, too", he said, picking her up in his arms . . .

And carried her into their bedroom.

He placed her on the bed and gave her a romantic kiss.

They madeout.

And they did woo hoo!

Afterwards . . .

Jimmy lay in bed and Arlene scooted up close behind him.

Even though Joyce is gone, she was still able to help Arlene.

"Life is but a stopping place, a pause in what's to be. We all have different journeys and paths along the way, and when the journey finally ends, we'll clain a great reward. You all here today will miss Joyce dearly, but should be grateful for having known her."

"Now I ask those who will to come forward and say a last goodbye to Joyce."

Joy came forward and mourned her mom and her best friend . . .

And cried.

She was given words of comfort and a hug by Larry.

Then Larry broke down and cried.

Arlene mourned for her grandmother, her confidant and her best friend.

Joy comforted Arlene and gave her a hug.

Then her husband Jimmy gave Arlene a hug.

Kevin came forward and mourned for his grandmother.

He received words of comfort and a hug from Rhys . . .

And an exchange of looks by his two fathers.

Then Larry and Rhys chatted.

Then Joy came over and gave Rhys a "thumbs up".

Maybe it was to let him know she appreciated him having an affair with her?

Rhys seemed a little puzzeled by her actions.

Rhys mourned Joyce and . . .

Wiped his tears on the sleeve of his suit.

Rhys received no sympathy from Larry.
Then Rev. Woods asked the congregation to join him in the cemetary beside the church for the burial.

"A few weeks before she died, Joyce came to me and asked that I read the following poem at the end of her funeral service . . .
"If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
Oh yes, those things I too will miss

I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work, to play
Tasks left undone will stay that way
I found that peace at the close of day." (from poems)

"It was a beautiful service Jonathan. I think Joyce would have been pleased", said Rhys.
"You know who that poem was for, don't you?", said Jonathan, "Joyce confessed everything to me before she asked for God's forgiveness."
"She was a special lady", said Rhys.

Rhys gave his grandfather a hug.

Then he went over and congratulated Arlene and Jimmy on their marriage.

Joy came over to Rhys and said "I know my mom had a special place in her heart for you. I think you made her happier than she's been in a long time."

"Joyce and me was just friends, nothing more", he lied.

While everyone else was leaving to go home . . .

Rhys went over to Joyce's grave . . .
"Like I told my grandfather, you're a special lady. I'm going to miss you, Beautiful", he said.

Picket Fences! Part 42.1

A few days after Joyce's funeral over at Arlene and Jimmy's apartment . . .

Arlene had gotten her first "baby bump" that morning. Jimmy rubbed her belly.

Then he gave her a tender kiss.

Arlene could hardly wait to tell her mom the news. She called Joy and invited her over.

Joy arrived a few minutes later and was greeted by Arlene.

They gave each other a hug.

"You look wonderful!", said Joy, having noticed Arlene's "baby bump".

"Mom, you do, too!", said Arlene, noticing that Joy was an elder now.

While Arlene visited with her mother . . .

Jimmy cut the grass and . . .

Trimmed the hedges.

"Do you and Jimmy want a boy or a girl?", asked Joy.

"Jimmy says it doesn't matter, but I think he would really prefer a boy. I think every man wants a son to carry on the family name. I remember how happy Daddy was when Kevin was born."
"Yes, I remember. But he was just as happy when you were born sweetheart", said Joy.

"Hey Joy", said Jimmy when he came in the kitchen to get a drink.
"Hey Jimmy, congratulations!", said Joy as she was getting up to leave.

She gave Arlene a hug goodbye.

Then Joy left to go home.

On Jonathan's houseboat the next day . . .

Shannan had started into labor. Jonathan and Nathan watched as . . .

She delivered a baby boy.

He has his daddy's skintone, brown hair and dark grey eyes. She handed the baby to Jonathan.

She continued her labor and delivered another baby boy.

He has his mama's skintone, brown eyes and blonde hair.

Jonathan and Shannan have twin sons they named Scott and Sean.

Jonathan fed Sean a bottle of milk . . .

And Nathan fed Scott.

Several days followed with the household revolving around the babies.

Nathan was the only one who got a break when he was in school.

When Friday came, Jonathan's carpool came at 9:30 P.M.

He works 10 P.M. to 2 A.M. as a Professional Party Guest.

Shannan went to bed right after he left. She was still on maternity leave, but was thinking very seriously about quiting her job to stay home with the twins.

Nathan went to bed without having to be told. He was tired from school and helping with the twins.

Jonathan came home from work at 2:30 A.M.

He climbed into bed with Shannan and went right to sleep.

The next afternoon Jonathan called Rhys . . .
"Hey buddy, you want to come over."

"Sure, I'll be right there."

When Rhys arrived Jonathan greeted him with aa friendly hug.

"Are you doing alright?", asked Rhys.

"It's been a little hectic around here since the twins were born, but I can't complain", said Jonathan.

"I don't know how you took care of Ryan on your own. It's all the three of us can do to take care of these two", said Jonathan.

"Hello Rhys", said Shannan.
"Hey Shannan", he said.

"There's something I have to ask you", she said.
"I figured you was being nice to me for some reason", said Rhys.

"My friend Regan is a photographer for an advertising agency and she needs a male model for an ad campaign. She saw you at our wedding and asked me if I thought you might pose for her", said Shannan.
"I ain't no model, but I reckon I can give it a try", said Rhys.
"Great, I'll call Regan and tell her you'll do it", said Shannan.

"Hey Regan. He agreed to do it."

"Great! Tell him to come over tomorrow morning."

"She said to come to her studio over on Main Street tomorrow morning", said Shannan.
"I guess I better go on home. Got to get my beauty rest", he laughed.

Then Rhys left to go home.

Picket Fences! Part 42.2

The next morning at Regan's place . . .

Rhys arrived at ten o'clock and went upstairs to her studio.

"Good morning Rhys", said Regan, "Do you remember me?"

"Sure I remember you. I never forget a . . . beautiful face", he said.

"Well um . . . go in the dressing room and put on the swimsuit in the dresser", she said.

Rhys went into the dressing room and changed into the swimsuit.

Then he checked himself out in the mirror.

"Alright Rhys, stand over there and look at the camera", said Regan.

"How's this?", he asked.

"Your mouth isn't quite right. Let me show you", she said.

"Alright, look at the camera! Perfect!"
Regan took a few more shots of Rhys standing in different poses . . .

"Alright, now sit here like this and think about something you like to do", she said.

"Perfect, that's a great expression!"
Then she took several more shots of Rhys sitting in different poses . . .

"Alright, we're finished", she said.
"Now that I'm done with my work, do you want me to stay and hangout?", asked Rhys.

"Yes, I think I can find something for us to do", said Regan.

Then Rhys gave her a passionate kiss.

"You want to relax with me on the bed?", she asked.

"You took the words right out of my mouth", said Rhys.

"Come 'mon Beautiful. Lead the way", he said.

She relaxed on the bed and asked him to join. They madeout.

He gave her a romantic kiss.

"I don't usually jump into bed with every man I photograph", she said, "But there's just something about you. . . "

"I don't know . . . but I'm glad I got it", he said.

"You want to do woo hoo?", asked Rhys.
"Yes!", she said.
Later . . .

"You're incredible Rhys", said Regan.

"You're pretty incredible yourself Beautiful", said Rhys.

Then they both fell asleep.

After they woke up from their nap . . .

Rhys left to go home.

Picket Fences! Part 43.1

Over at Jonathan and Shannan's houseboat . . .

Jonathan called Rhys . . .
"We're having a party for the twins' birthday. We'd like for you and Ryan to come if you can make it."

"Sure, we'll be there in a few minutes."

Shannan called her cousin Claudia and invited her and Noah to the party.

As soon as the guests arrived, Jonathan brought Scott to his birthday cake. He did the "baby toss". . .

And he returned to his daddy's arms a cute toddler. Scott looks a lot like Jonathan and Nathan.

Then Shannan brought Sean to his birthday cake.

She did the "baby toss".

Sean returned to his mama's arms a cute toddler. Sean looks more like Shannan.

Jonathan held Sean.

Shannan picked up Scott when he asked for attention.

She played with him until he got sleepy.

Then she put him in his crib.

Nathan cuddled Sean before putting him in his crib.

"I should be getting Noah on home", said Claudia.

She gave Rhys a romantic hug goodbye.

"Bye Dad", said Noah, as Rhys gave him a goodbye hug.

Claudia and Noah left to go home.

Then a short time later Rhys and Ryan left the party to go home.

At Rhys' place the next morning it was time for Ryan to grow up.

Ryan came to his birthday cake.

He blew out the candles and starting growing up.

He grew up into a very goodlooking adult.

"Happy birthday son. I love you", said Jasmyn.

"Thank you Mom. I love you, too", he said, giving her a hug.

"You two are the best parents a guy could ever want", said Ryan.

Then he gave Rhys a thumbs up.

Picket Fences! Part 43.2

Across the street at Joy and Larry's house . . .

Kevin came to his birthday cake.

He made a wish and blew out the candles.

Joy, Jimmy, Larry and Arlene blew the horns and clapped the clappers to celebrate.

Then Kevin started growing up.

He grew up into a very handsome adult.

"Happy birthday little brother", said Arlene.

Arlene was surprised when she got her second "baby bump".

"Arlene I want you to call me as soon as you have the baby", said Joy.

"Your mother and I will come over as soon as you call. This is our first grandchild and we don't want to miss a minute of it", said Larry.

"Mom and Dad are going to worry themselves to death until you have that baby", said Kevin.

Arlene was tired, so she and Jimmy left to go home early.

A few days later over at Arlene and Jimmy's apartment . . .

They had just sat down to have breakfast when all of a sudden . . .

Arlene stood up and started having labor pains.

"It's not as bad as I thought it would be", she thought to herself.
With one last push Arlene delivered a beautiful baby boy.

She handed the baby to Jimmy.
"We have a son", she said.

Their baby has brown eyes and black hair like both his parents. They named him David.

Arlene called her parents and invited them over to see the baby.

Jimmy also called his parents and invited them over.

A few minutes later Larry and Joy arrived. Joy gave Arlene a hug.

Joy held David so his grandaddy could talk to him.

David smiled a little at Larry.

As soon as he walked in the door, Jimmy's dad Sam talked to the baby.

Jimmy's mama Emily gave her son a hug.

Kevin watched the grandparents talking to the baby. For some reason, which he thought he knew, he felt out-of-place being here.

He gave Arlene a hug goodbye and told her he was happy to be an uncle.

Then Kevin left before anyone noticed.

Soon after Jimmy's parents were leaving to go home. They told Jimmy the twins (Nathan and Nancy) would stop by tomorrow after school.

Then as Larry and Joy were leaving she said "I wonder where Kevin took off to in such a hurry."
"He more than likely went over to Rhys Sawyer's place. That boy spends more time over there than he does at home", said Larry.

When Kevin left Arlene and Jimmy's apartment he went to Rhys' place.

He felt like he was coming home whenever he came here.

He had one question to ask Rhys and was hoping for an honest answer.

Picket Fences! Part 44.1

At the end of Part 43.2, Kevin Anderson had come to Rhys' place to ask him one question and was expecting an honest answer.

When he walked in the door Ryan said "Hey, YOU look great!"

"Thanks! So do you!", said Kevin.
"Yeah, I do don't I", he said.

"Is your dad here?", asked Kevin.
"Yeah, he's in the livingroom", said Ryan.

"I'm on my way to pick up the little ankle biter. You dig?", said Ryan.
"Sure, I dig", said Kevin.
("Ankle biter" is 1950's slang for child and "dig" means understand)
"You wanna go with me?", he asked.
"No, I'll stay here and talk to your dad", said Kevin.

Rhys came over to where Kevin was standing, "Hey Kevin. You're looking good", he said.

"Thanks", he said, "Rhys I need to ask you something."
"Sure, let's go sit down", said Rhys.

They went down to the livingroom.

"Alright, what do you want to ask me?", asked Rhys, prepared to explain woo hoo to the boy, thinking Larry was probably too shy to talk about it.

Rhys, are you my dad?", asked Kevin.

That wasn't the question he expected. Rhys was trying to decide whether to tell the truth or continue to lie.

Then he looked his son square in the face and said "Yes, I'm your dad."

"Why didn't you or Mom tell me?", asked Kevin, "Why did y'all let me grow up believing Larry was my dad?"
"I found out I was your father when you was a toddler. We all agreed you was too young to understand, so your mom let me come to visit you. Then when you grew up to a child and became friends with Ryan, they let you come over here on Saturdays so I could spend time with both you and Ryan.
"How did you find out?", asked Kevin.

"Your grandma Joyce told me. She figured it out. She said you and me had the same smile", said Rhys.
(This basic southern word "y'all" is actually a contraction for "you all," it is most commonly used in place of the plural form of "you".)

"So when I grew up to a teenager, why didn't you tell me then? I would have understood", he said.
"One of the conditions for you to continue to visit was that I promised not to ever tell you", said Rhys.
"Did you ever want to tell me I was your son?". asked Kevin.
"I would have given anything for you to know you was my son and Ryan's brother", he said.

"You see, my parents died when I was a toddler and I was taken to an orphanage. That's where I met Jonathan and we became best friends. He was kinda like a big brother to me. Jonathan was the only family I had until Ryan, you and Noah came along", said Rhys..

"Now that I know you'll my dad, it answers a lot of questions I had", said Kevin.

"Can I tell Ryan I'm his brother?", asked Kevin.

"I'd rather be the one to tell him. I'm tell him when I think the time is right", said Rhys.

"Thanks Rhys, for telling me the truth", he said.

Ryan returned home with the ankle biter.

"Dad my birthday's going to be in a few days", said Noah, "Are you going to be able to come to my party?"
"Sure, I wouldn't miss it for the world", said Rhys.

"Am I invited to your party?", asked Ryan.
"Of course, you're my brother. You got to come", said Noah.

"Are you going to invite me, too?", asked Kevin.
"Sure, we're best friends ain't we", said Noah.

"Dad can we go to the zoo today?", asked Noah.
"It's four of us here. So we got to vote on where we go", said Rhys.

"I want to go to the lake", said Ryan, "How about you Kevin?"
"Sounds good to me.", said Kevin.

"We vote for the lake", said Ryan, "How about you Dad. The zoo or the lake?"

"I rather go to the lake!", said. Rhys.

"Pooey, I want to go to the zoo", said Noah.

"Cool it little buddy", said Rhys, "You was out voted.".

Then Rhys called Transpotation and asked for a taxicab for multiple Sims. .

When the taxicab arrived they all came out of the house and got in.

Rhys told the driver to take them to the lake.

Picket Fences!  Part 44

The taxicab soon arrived at the front gate.

Everybody got out of the taxicab. They entered the front gate.

Kevin did a body flop into the water.

Noah dived into the water.

Ryan was more interested in flirting with Mary . . .

And sweet talking Sarah.

Mary caught him flirting with Sarah and argued with him.

"You don't own me!  I'll talk to whoever I want!", Ryan shouted.

Mary got mad and left.

Ryan dived into the water to cool off.

Kevin was content talking and flirting with his girlfriend Heather.

Rhys was content just relaxing in one of the lounge chairs.

Ryan was climbing out of the water when he saw an attractive Townie coming his way.

He strutted over to flirt with her.

They got in the hottub.  He gave her a massage.

And she gave him a tender kiss.

They madeout.

When he heard Rhys call "Come 'mon boys, time to go!", Ryan told the girl he had to leave.
"Will I see you again?", she asked.
"Yeah sure", he said.

When the taxicab came to pick them up, Rhys told the driver to take them to Moos Mew's Pizza Parlor.

The taxicab stopped in front of the pizza parlor.

Kevin grabbed one of the pizzas off the counter, opened the box and grabbed a slice.

Noah grabbed a slice.

"Did you have a good time today?", Rhys asked Noah.
"Yeah, I guess", he said.

"Who was that girl you was making out with in the hottub?", asked Rhys.
"I don't know her name.  She's just some Townie", said Ryan.

"I don't think I could makeout with some girl I don't even know", said Kevin.
"It don't matter what their name is, as long as they're pretty . . . and female", said Ryan.

After they all finished eating Rhys called a taxicab to take them home.

Rhys called Claudia to ask if she wanted him to bring Noah home.
"I'll come over to get him", she said, "I'll be there in a few minutes."
"That's good, 'cause I'm bushed", said Rhys.

When Claudia arrived Noah told her all about going to the lake and the pizza parlor.  

"Noah's birthday is in a few days.  Will you be able to come to his party?", asked Claudia.
"Will it be a sleepover?", asked Rhys.
"If you're a good little boy that might can be arranged", she said.
"Then I'll definitely be there", he said.

Then Claudia and Noah left to go home.

Across town at Arlene and Jimmy's apartment . . .

Arlene's carpool came at 8:30 A.M. to pick her up for work.

She has been promoted to Social Worker.

Jimmy has the day off so he's looking after their baby.  On the days he and Arlene both have to work, they will hire a Nanny.

When Jimmy went to take out the trash he met their new neighbor.
"Come on in.  I got a baby and I can't leave him alone for too long", said Jimmy.

Jimmy introduced himself to the neighbor.
"I'm Jimmy Martin", he said.
"Glad to meet you Jimmy.  I'm Ryan. . . Ryan Sawyer", he said.

Picket Fences! Part 45.1

"Are you kin to the Sawyer who lives over on Shadetree Lane?", asked Jimmy.
"I don't rightly know. I could be", said Ryan.
"I was just wondering because he has a son named Ryan", said Jimmy.

Jimmy asked Ryan to join him for a cup of coffee in the kitchen.

"Where are you from Ryan?"

"I've been moving around so much, I can't really say", said Ryan, "My mother use to live here in Buford Falls or so I was told."

"What's her name?", asked Jimmy.
"Grace Sawyer . . . you know her?", he asked.
"My parents probably did. Grace has been dead almost twenty years", said Jimmy.
"Oh yeah, I imagine she would. More time has passed than I realized", said Ryan.

Ryan thanked Jimmy for the information and for the coffee. Then he left to go back to his place.

At Claudia's house the following Saturday everything was ready for Noah's birthday party. The birthday cake was baked, the ballons were inflated and the guests had arrived.

Noah came to his birthday cake.

He made a wish, blew out the candles and cheered.

Claudia twirled a clapper and Shannan watched.

Rhys and Kevin blew the birthday horns.

Jonathan held Sean.

And Nathan held Scott while they watched . . .

Noah started to grow up.

He grew up well into a cute teenager.

Claudia gave Noah a birthday hug.

Rhys gave him a hug.

Then Noah asked Rhys to play Punch U-Punch Me.

"I can hardly believe Noah's a teenager already. It doesn't seem like that long ago he was born", she said.
"With the kids growing up so fast, it makes you feel old", said Jonathan.
"Speak for yourself old man. I'm just getting started with the twins", said Shannan.

Shannan picked up Sean and . . .

Sit down beside Claudia.
"You know, when Noah was born, I never thought for a minute that Rhys would stick by you this long. He surprised me", said Shannan.
"He kinda surprised me, too", said Claudia.

Noah and Nathan were sitting together.
"It must be boss to be able to live on a houseboat", said Noah.
"Yeah, but ever since the ankle biters was born it's been a little hectic", said Nathan,"My dad ain't got much free time anymore."

"Maybe it'll be better after the twins get old enough to start school. You ain't got much longer before you grow up into an adult. Then you can move to your own place", said Noah.

"Yeah, you're right", said Nathan.

Rhys and Claudia were sitting together.
"Can I stay over tonight?", asked Rhys.
"Yes, if you want to", said Claudia.

"Noah wants to go back to my place with Ryan tonight. Will that be alright with you?", asked Rhys.
"Sure, he likes spending time with his brothers", she said.

"You want to go to my place with me and Noah?", Ryan asked Kevin.
"I would, but I guess I'll go on home tonight", said Kevin.
"That's cool", said Ryan.

"Arlene and Jimmy are having a birthday party for their son tomorrow. With him being my nephew and all, I should go with the folks", said Kevin.
"Yeah, duty calls, right?", said Ryan.
Some candid shots of the party follows:

"Claudia, are you really happy with the way things are between you and Rhys?", asked Shannan.
"Shannan, you know I'd like to get married, but I know that isn't going to happen with Rhys. So if this is the only way I can have him, then I'm satisfied with that", she said.

"I enjoyed it. We'll have to get together again soon", said Shannan.
"Yes, we will", said Claudia.

"Everybody's gone. Let's go inside and get comfortable", said Rhys.

"Everybody's gone home. We may as well", said Claudia.
"Does that include relaxing on your bed?", asked Rhys.
"That might be part of it", she said.

Then she gave him a tender kiss before going inside.

Claudia relaxed on her bed and Rhys joined her.
"Ain't that my good white shirt?", he asked.
"You left it here the last time we had a sleepover, so it's mine now. ", she said.

"You can keep it. It looks better on you than it does me", he said.
"Thank you, but I had no intentions of returning it anyway", she teased.

Picket Fences!  Part 45.2

"The other day, Kevin asked me if I was his dad", said Rhys.
"What did you tell him?", asked Claudia.
"I told him the truth.  It won't no need to keep it from him no longer", said Rhys.

He gave her a romantic kiss.

They madeout.

"Can we do woo hoo now?", he asked.

And Claudia said YES!

"I love you Rhys", she said.

"Yeah sure, I know you do", said Rhys.

Then they both went to sleep.

Rhys woke up during the night and was lounging on the bedroom bench.

When Claudia woke, she went over to him.
"Rhys, is there something bothering you?", she asked.

"I couldn't sleep", he said, "Go on back to bed."

"I'm a good  listener, if you need to talk about anything", said Claudia.

"Claudia, what am I suppose to do when I get old?  Ain't no women  gonna  want to do woo hoo with an old man", said Rhys.

"You still have quite a few years before you need to worry about that.  And I'm sure you're be just as desirable when you're an elder as you are now.  'You'll only as old as you feel,' isn't that what they say?", said Claudia.

"Yeah, you're right.  I don't have to stop living just because I'm getting older", said Rhys.

"I ain't dead yet", he said.

"You're definitely NOT dead", she said.

"Thank you Claudia.  Our little talk helped a lot", said Rhys, "I'll send Noah home this afternoon, but first I'm going to tell him and Ryan that Kevin is their brother.  It's about time they all know."

Then Rhys left to go home with a new outlook on life.

Later that morning downtown at the Office Of Records . . .. . .

Ryan Sawyer has come seeking information about his mother Grace.

He walked into the office and asked the clerk "Could you help me, please?"

"Yes sir, what can I do for you?", she asked.
"I need to see the certificate of death for Miss Grace Sawyer", he said.
"All the town records are over there in that cabinet.  Just sign the book before you open any files", she said.

He signed the open book on top of the cabinet . . .

He found Grace's file and sit down to read.  It listed her birthdate, date of death, her address and where she was buried.

He placed the file back in the cabinet and thanked the clerk.

Ryan sit on the bench in front of the building.  Jake the barber sit down beside him.
"I haven't seen you around before.  Did you move to Buford Falls recently or are you just visiting", asked Jake.
"I'm visiting at the moment.  Can you give me directions to Buford Falls Church . . . well, actually the cemetary", said Ryan.

"Sure, it isn't too far from here.  You go left, up two blocks and you'll see it.  The cemetary is right beside the church.  You can't miss it", said Jake.

"Thanks for your help", he told Jake.

Then Ryan left in the direction Jake had said he would find the church.

He walked up two blocks and the church came into view at the end of the street and he saw the cemetary right beside it.

He found Grace's tombstone with the baby angels carved on it.  It saddened him to see his mother's final resting place, but he couldn't mourn someone he never knew.

Ryan turned around when he heard someone say "May I help you?"
The voice came from a well-dressed, elderly gentleman, he presumed to be the pastor of the church.

"Thanks, but I already found what I came here for", said Ryan.
"Were you and Grace friends?", asked  Rev. Woods.
"No, I never had the pleasure of meeting her", said Ryan.

"That's too bad.  She was a wonderful lady", said the pastor.

"Did you know my mother very well", said Ryan.
"Grace . . . was your mother?", said the pastor.
"Yeah, in name only.  It's a long story", said Ryan.
"Let's sit down and you can tell me, if you'd like", he said.

"Well, you see, when my mother found out she was expecting a baby by some good-for-nothing fellow here in Buford Falls and he didn't want to marry her.  She came to her brother's farm in Pleasentview, where I was born.  George and his wife Nora couldn't have childern of their own, so Grace let them have me.  Nobody in town knew that Grace had given birth to me.  They thought Nora and George had finally been able to have a child", said Ryan.

"I'm sure Grace must have thought she was doing the best thing for you at the time", said the pastor.
"Yeah, I guess she did.  But George and Nora were both elders by the time I became a teenager and they died soon after I became an adult.  They left me the farm, but I lost it during the depression", he said.
"When did you find out Grace was your mother and they weren't your real parents", asked the pastor.
"They left a letter with their lawyer explaining everything.  It said that George's younger sister Grace was my mother.  I didn't try to find her back then because I figured she wouldn't want to be reminded of that time in her life", said Ryan, "But now I wish I had tried to find her and gotten to know her before she died. "

"I think we all have things we've done in the past that we wish we could go back and do over", said the pastor.
"To be sure, YOU haven't ever done anything like that", said Ryan.

"Son, I'm that good-for-nothing fellow who loved Grace, but couldn't marry her.  I was already married to a woman I didn't love and Grace never told me she was expecting my child", said the pastor.

"So you're my father", asked Ryan.

Picket Fences! Part 46.1

Over at Arlene and Jimmy's place . . .

It was time for their son David's first birthday.
Jimmy brought a very happy infant to his birthday cake. He helped David blow out the candles.

Invited guests Larry, Kevin, Nancy, Emily . . .

Nathan, Joy and Sam twirled the clappers and blew the birthday horns.

Jimmy did the "baby toss" and David returned to his arms a cute toddler.

David has black hair, brown eyes and medium skintone like both his parents.

Larry played with his grandson most of the afternoon. He was able to teach David to walk.

"Your dad looks so cute playing with David", said Nancy.
"Yeah, he's taken to being a grandpa like a duck to water", said Kevin.

"Do you like being married?", asked Nathan.
"Yeah, I'm happier than I've ever been", said Jimmy.

"I'm thinking about asking Julie to be engaged", said Nathan.
"That will be great. Her and Arlene are best friends", said Jimmy.

When the party ended the guests left to go home.

Over at Rhys' place when he got home from Claudia's house, he told Noah and Ryan to sit down. He had something important to tell them.

"Boys I know y'all and Kevin are best friends, which makes what I'm going to tell you a little easier to swallow. You see, Kevin's your brother."

"Wow, that's cool! I got two big brothers", said Noah.

"Why didn't you tell me before now?", asked Ryan.

"Kevin didn't know until now. He asked me if I was his dad and I told him the truth. I couldn't tell you before him."

"That don't change nothing. We're all still be best friends, right?", said Noah.

"Yeah, right", said Ryan.

"It's cool with me", said Noah, "Can I tell Mom?"
"She already knows", said Rhys, "You better head on home, she'll be waiting for you."

While over at the church . . .

"YOU, you're my father! I'm a preacher's son?", said Ryan.

"I loved Grace and she loved me. It was only on that one occassion that things got out of hand. She didn't tell me when she discovered she was pregnant. She went away that summer supposingly to stay with an aunt who was ill. We remained friends when she returned to Buford Falls, but we never talked about what had happened.

"Let's go over to the parsonage. There's some other things you need to know."
"Alright preacher", said Ryan.
"You can call me Joseph", he said.

"As I said before Grace never told me about you. I didn't find out I had a son until my grandson moved to town", said Joseph.
"Rhys . . . he lives here in Buford Falls?", asked Ryan.

"After Grace died her lawyers contacted Rhys and told him he was Grace's heir. She left everything she owned to the boy", said the pastor.

"Yes, I imagine she would since she thought I was dead", said Ryan.

"Why did you let everyone, including Grace, think you were dead?", asked the pastor.
After Rhys' mama died I had a hard time dealing with it. I started drinking to forget. Rhys was just a toddler and I wasn't able to take care of myself, much less him. Things got pretty bad and social services came and got him. I got help with my drinking problem, then I joined up with the crew that was building the Hoover Dam. Many of the workers were killed during it's construction, so I don't know why, I just thought at the time, it was the best thing for everyone to believe I was one of the many", explained Ryan.

"I figured Rhys would have been adopted by a nice couple who wanted a child. He was an extremely beautiful little boy. I wonder why he stayed in the orphanage all those years", said Ryan.
"I don't know, but maybe after Grace heard you were dead, she wanted to keep Rhys where she would know where he was. I guess by leaving him her entire estate she was trying to make it up to him. Nobody but Grace will ever know for sure", said the pastor.

"You also have three grandsons here in town", said Joseph.
"Really, so Rhys is a family man. I'd love to meet my grandsons and Rhys' wife. Do you think Rhys would want to see me?", asked Ryan.
"He's a pretty forgiving person. Even after I told him about Grace and me, he and I became friends", said the pastor, "Oh, theres something else you should know. Rhys isn't married and never has been. He has the three boys with three diffent women in town."

Rev. Woods went over and picked up the telephone.
"Hello Rhys, can you come to the parsonage. There's someone here who wants to see you."

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

Picket Fences!  Part 46.2

When Rhys arrived his grandfather told him that Ryan was his father whom he believed was dead.
"Where have you been?", asked Rhys.

"I'll try to explain that to you", said Ryan.
"Sure, start explaining", said Rhys.

Then Ryan told Rhys the same story he had told Joseph.

"I know saying I'm sorry doesn't change what happened, but I hope you can try to understand", said Ryan.

"I always wished my dad was alive and now you are.  I don't want to lose you again.  Ain't nobody perfect", said Rhys.

Then Rhys gave his dad a hug.

"Thank you Joseph.  I appologize for what I said in the cemetary", said Ryan.

Then he gave his father a hug.

"Come 'mon with me to my place.  We got a lot of catching up to do", said Rhys.
"Thanks", said Ryan.

Then Ryan left to go home with Rhys . . .

And arrived soon afterwards.

"Ryan, I got someone I want you to meet". said Rhys, "This gentleman is Ryan Sawyer, your grandpa."

"Hey Ryan, I'm glad to meet my namesake", said Ryan Sr.
"Glad to meet you, too", said Ryan.

While the two Ryans were getting to know each other, Rhys called Delivery and ordered a pizza.

The pizza delivery girl arrived in just a few minutes.

Ryan accepted the delivery.

"Now that I've finished work, do you want me to stay and hangout?", asked Marie.
"Sure, come join us for lunch", said Ryan.

He took the pizza into the kitchen.

"Where's Grandpa been all these years?", asked Ryan.
"It's a long story.  I'll let him tell you", said Rhys.

"Well, I came here with the intention of seeing my mother.  I guess I should have expected she'd be dead by now.  I didn't realize so much time had passed", said Ryan Sr.

"I remember Grace.  She was a nice lady.  She would always give me a generous tip", said Marie.

"We got a guest room, if you want to stay with us for a few days", said Rhys.
"Thank you, I believe I will", he said.

"You certainly grew up looking very well", Marie told Ryan.
"Thanks, I'm glad you noticed", he said.

"We got a hottub out on the patio.  You want to go get in?", asked Ryan.
"Sure, not too many people around here have one of those", she said.

Ryan got in the hottub and . . .

Marie joined him.

"You been delivering pizza to our house for a lot of years.  How well do you know my dad?", asked Ryan.
"Not as well as I know you.  When you were a kid, you would always accept the delivery", said Marie.
"Yeah, I remember", said Ryan.

Then he asked her to cuddle.

She gave him a tender kiss.

They madeout.

He asked her to do woo hoo and she said YES!

Woo Hoo!

"That was incredible", they both agreed.

"Thank you for a wonderful afternoon", said Ryan.

"I got to go", she said, jumping out of the hottub.

Now Ryan understood what his dad had ment when he said "Being goodlooking makes it easier".  It only took one look and Marie had been like putty in his hands.

Rhys and his father were chatting in the livingroom when the telephone started ringing.

Rhys answered it . . .
"Hello!", he said.

"Rhys, can you come over? I really need to see you", said Regan.
"Sure, I'll be there in a few minutes", he said.

"I got some important business to take care of,  I'll be back as soon as I can", Rhys told his dad.

He met Ryan coming down the hall.
"I got to go somewhere.  Entertain your grandpa while I'm gone", said Rhys.

Then he left to go to Regan's place.

He arrived in just a few minutes.  Regan greeted him with a romantic hug.

"What's wrong Beautiful?", he asked.
"I'm pregnant", she said.,"I can't have a baby.  I want to be a model.  It's no way I can fit a baby into my schedule."
"Let's sit down and talk about it", said Rhys.

"Listen, you've been given a precious gift that's non-returnable.  You'll make time in your schedule for it once it's born", said Rhys.  
"I guess you'll right", she said.

"Rhys, I didn't intend for this to happen", said Regan.
"Yeah, I know.  Me neither", said Rhys.

"Don't worry, I'll take care of everything.  Just have us a beautiful, healthy baby", said Rhys.
"Alright, as long as you promise to be here for me", she said.
"Sure, I promise", he said.

Picket Fences! Part 47

At Rhys' place a few days later . . .

Rhys called his grandfather Joseph. . .

"Can you come over. My other two sons are here and they want to meet you."

"Thank you for inviting me. I'll be right over."

When Joseph arrived a few minutes later Rhys greeted him with a friendly hug.

"These are my boys", said Rhys.

"That's Kevin, Ryan who you already know and my youngest son Noah", said Rhys, "Boys meet your great-grandfather Joseph."

Joseph gave each of his great-grandsons a friendly hug.

"Come sit down Grandfather", said Rhys.

Joseph spent an enjoyable afternoon getting to know his son, grandson and his three great-grandsons.

When Joseph said he had to go home, Rhys and then Ryan hugged him goodbye.

He left to go home just before dark. He had to start preparing his sermon for Sunday morning.

Meanwhile across the street at Mary Lou and Peter's house . . .

Today was their youngest daughter Carrie's birthday. She came to her cake.

She made a wish and blew out the candles.

Nathan Martin, Julie, Mary Lou and Peter cheered.

Then Carrie cheered as

She grew up into a cute teenager.

She grabbed a huge slice of her birthday cake.

Mary Lou and Peter each grabbed a huge slice.

Julie and Nathan went outside and cuddled in the porch swing.

"I've always loved you Julie", he said.

"Even when you beat me up at Arlene's teenage birthday party?", she teased, nuzzeling his neck.

"Yeah, even then", he laughed.

He gave her a romantic kiss.

"There's something I want to ask you", said Nathan, "Stand up."

Julie stood up and Nathan bent down on one knee.

He held up a beautiful diamond ring.

"Julie, will you be engaged to me?", he asked.

She admired the ring while Nathan waited for her answer.

"YES!", she said.

"I love you Nathan", she said.

"I love you, too", he said.

At Jonathan and Shannan's place Saturday, it was time for the twins' birthday.

Jonathan brought Scott to his cake and Shannan brought Sean to his.

They helped the toddlers blow out the candles while . . .

The invited guests tooted the horns and twirled the clappers.

Then Sean and Scott did the "toddler dance".

They both grew up into cute childern.

And they both grabbed a huge slice of their birthday cake.

This is Scott.

This is Sean.

They posed for the obligatory twins' photograph.

Which they both agreed was silly.

Picket Fences! Part 48.1

Joseph Ryan Woods, pastor
of Buford Falls Church, died
yesterday at the church.
Rev. Woods, an elder, was
preceded in death by his late
wife, Irene Woods. Funeral
services will be conducted
by Rev. Michael Spain. Burial
will be in the churchcemetary.

At Buford Falls Church Tuesday morning . . .

Rev. Michael Spain, the new pastor of the church, conducted the funeral services.

"You his friends and members of his congregation have come here today to pay your respects and say goodbye to a wonderful friend and respected patriarch of Buford Falls. Rev. Woods had no family except you his church family. After the death of his beloved wife Irene, he devoted himself to his ministry.

Rhys Sawyer and his father Ryan Sawyer (Joseph and Grace's grandson and son) . .

Ryan Carlson and Kevin Anderson (Rhys' sons) . . .

Noah Alan (Rhys' son) and Nathan Jordan (Jonathan's son) . . .

Shannan and Jonathan Henry . . .

Larry and Joy Anderson . . .

Mary Lou and Peter Edwards . . .

Sam and Emily Martin . . .

Jimmy and Arlene Martin . . .

Betty and Ben Jones . . .

Dr. Thomas Brian and his wife Nurse Jane . . .

Rev, Spain's wife Gwen also attended.

"I'd like to read Rev. Woods' favorite poem"Footprints", said Rev. Spain.

"One night I dreamed I was walking
Along the beach with the Lord,
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints.
Other times there was only one.
This bothered me because I noticed
During the low periods of my life when I was
Suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.
So I said to the Lord, “You promised me,
Lord, that if I followed you,
You would walk with me always.
But I noticed during the most trying periods
Of my life there has only been
One set of prints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most,
Have you not been there for me?
The Lord replied,
“The times when you have seen only one set of footprints
It was then that I carried you.”

Those who wish to do so at this time may come forward and mourn Rev. Woods before we go to the cemetary for the graveside service."

Rev. Woods left a request for this poem verse from Robert Frost's poem "The Road Not Taken" be read at his graveside:

"Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And
sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, lon I stood And looked
down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair.

I shall be telling this with a sigh.
Somewhere ages and ages hence;
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took
the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."
Some candid shots taken at the cemetary follow:

Picket Fences!  Part 48.2

At Rhys' place after the funeral service . . .

"You know, I think after Joseph told me about him and Grace , he was finally able to forgive himself.  He always blamed himself, but it was neither one of them's fault, it just happened", said Ryan.

"We should be thankful it did happen or none of us would be here today", said Rhys.

"I don't understand why Grace didn't tell him she was pregnant.  If she had, he might have married her", said Ryan.

"He couldn't marry her.  He was already married to Irene.  And preachers ain't allowed to get divorced", said Rhys.

"Like in that poem he wanted read at his funeral.  There was two roads and he took the one he thought was right, but then found out too late that he should have took the other one", explained Kevin,"Everybody's done things they were sorry for later, but you can't change something that's already happened.  You just make the best of it."

"Yeah, like Dad does", laughed Ryan.

"Kevin, you want to go to the park and hang out?"

"Thanks, but I better go on home.  I need to get some sleep before I go to work tonight."

"How you like being a paramedic?", asked Rhys.

"I'm just getting started, but I think I'm going to like it", said Kevin.

Ryan called transpotation and asked them to send a taxicab for him.

The taxicab arrived a few minutes later . . .

And Ryan hurried to get in.

The taxi stopped at the entrance to Buford Falls Park and Ryan got out.

As soon as he entered the park he saw a familiar face.

He strutted over to say hello.

"Hey Beautiful", he said, not knowing her name.

"Hey Ryan!", she said, giving him a friendly hug.

"I was wondering what happened to you", she said.

"I been kinda busy.  But hey, I'm here now!", he said", You wanna get in the hottub?", he asked.

"Sure!", she said.

"Come 'mon, what you waiting for?", he said.

Ryan watched approvingly as she got in.

"Come over here with me", said Ryan.

"Alright", she said.

"Now ain't this better?", he asked.

"Yes it is", she said.

"You know something, you're really beautiful.", she said.

"Everybody says I look like my dad", said Ryan.

"Who's your dad?", she asked.

"Rhys Sawyer", he said.

"When we were in the hottub at the lake, I would have done more than makeout, if you had asked", she said.

He gave her a passionate kiss . . .

Which she had no problem returning.

"Can we do woo hoo now?", he asked.

And she said YES!

Woo Hoo!

"That was wonderful!", they both agreed.

When she started getting out of the hottub Ryan asked "Where you going?"

"It's getting late. I got to go home.  Call me sometimes", she said.

"Hey wait up Beautiful!", he shouted.

"I don't have your telephone number", he said.

"I'm in the phonebook", she said.

"I don't know your name", he said.

"I'm Jennifer Custer", she said.

Then he gave her a romantic kiss goodbye.

"I really got to go", she said.
"I'll call you", he said.

Then Jennifer left to go home.

Picket Fences! Part 49.1

Over at Mary Lou's house, Julie and Mary Lou were getting ready to go shopping for wedding clothes.

Mary Lou's daughter Julie called her best friend Arlene Martin. She had asked Arlene to be her maid-of-honor.

"Are you ready to go shopping for our dresses?, asked Julie.

"Yes, Mom's already here to stay with David", said Arlene.

"We'll be there in a few minutes", said Julie.

Then she called Transpotation and ordered a taxicab for multiple Sims.

Julie went out and got in the taxicab and waited for her mom.

Mary Lou finally came out of the house not looking much like wanting to go shopping.

They soon arrived at Buford Ford Mall . . .

And headed for the clothing store.

Julie, Arlene and Mary Lou browsed through the racks of formal clothes.

Julie found a bridal gown she liked and took it into the changing booth.

When she came out of the booth she asked "How do y'all like this one?"

"It's too plain", said Arlene.

"It makes you look like you're pregnant", said Mary Lou.

"Yes, you're right Mom", she said, after looking at herself in the floor-length mirror.

Arlene found a dress she liked and took it into the changing booth.

"I like this one", she said, "How about y'all?"

"That color looks nice with your hair", said Mary Lou.

"You look beautiful", said Julie.

Julie tried on another dress.

"Well, how about this one?"

"I don't like that one", Mary Lou said.

"I don't think that style is right for you", said Arlene.

"I like this one", said Julie, "What about y'all?"

"I like that one", said Mary Lou.

"Yes, it's pretty and looks good on you", said Arlene.

Arlene tried on a blue gown next.

"How about this one?", she said.

"That's a nice color", said Mary Lou.

"You look amazing", said Julie.

Then Arlene came out in a green gown.

"They all look good on you", said Mary Lou, "Marriage really agrees with you."

"Yeah, you just have to decide on a color", said Julie.

"Mom, Dad said to be sure you got a dress for yourself". said Julie.

"I probably got one at home I could wear, but I'll try this one on", she said.

She went into the booth and came out in a purple printed dress.

"Well, how do I look?", she asked.

"You look gorgeous Mom", said Julie.

"Yes, you do", agreed Arlene.

After they each decided on the dress they liked, Mary Lou paid the cashier for their purchases.

They stopped to purchase magazines to take home.

MaryLou purchased movie magazine for Carrie and a Highbrow Magazine for Peter.

Arlene also purchased a movie magazine . . .

And Julie purchased a Sci-Fi magazine, since Nathan was interested in that subject.

Mary Lou called Transpotation and ordered a taxicab to tae them home.

When the taxicab arrived Mary Lou and Julie got in . . .

And told Arlene goodbye.

They soon arrived home,

"I'm never going shopping again", said Mary Lou, "I'm exhausted."

Mary Lou and Julie walked in the frontdoor.

Julie went into the kitchen and gave her dad a hug.

"Thank you for my wedding dress Dad", she said.

"You're welcome sweetheart", said Peter.

"I'm so excited. I'm going to call Nathan and tell him I got my dress", said Julie.

"Don't forget, he can't see it before the wedding", said Mary Lou.

"Yes Mom, I know", she said.

Carrie started reading the movie magazine right away.

"Did you get yourself a new dress?", asked Peter.

"Yes I did", said Mary Lou, "And I look gorgeous in it."

At Claudia's house . . .

She picked up the telephone and called a Sim.

"Hello Rhys, can you come over. I need to talk to you about something", she said.

"Sure, I guess it won't hurt. I ain't got nothing else to do", he said.

When he arrived Claudia greeted him with a hug.

"I asked you over so I could appologize for the way I acted when you told me Regan was pregnant", she said.

"Does this mean you're okay with it?", he asked.

"Yes, I don't own you. You're free to do what you want with whoever you want", she said.

Before they could discuss it any further, Noah came home from school and walked into the livingroom.

He and Rhys played Punch U-Punch Me. Claudia was in the kitchen fixing lunchmeat sandwiches.

After they finished eating Noah helped his mother clean up the table.

He gave Claudia a hug and . . .

He gave Rhys a hug.

Then he went to bed and was soon sound asleep.

"Can we have a sleepover tonight?", Rhys asked Claudia.

"Yes, if you're a good boy", she teased.

Later while they were relaxing on Claudia's bed . . .

"Did Noah tell you he was planning on joining the Navy when he became as adult?", she asked.

"No, he ain't said nothing to me", said Rhys.

"I just hate the thought of him being gone for two whole years", she said.

"If that's what he's got his mind set on doing, it ain't nothing you or me can do to change it", said Rhys.

"Yes I know, he's just like someone else I know", she said.

"Do you mean me?", asked Rhys.

"Yes, YOU", said Claudia

"You can't keep him a little boy forever, Claudia", said Rhys.

"Yes, I know", she said.

Then he gave her a romantic kiss.

They madeout.

"Can we do woo hoo now?", he asked.

And Claudia said YES!

"Was I a good boy?", he asked.

"Oh yes", she said.

"So does that mean I can sleep over?", he asked.
"Yes", she said.

Then the telephone started ringing and Claudia went to answer it.

"Hello", she said.

"Is Rhys over there?", a female voice asked.

"I'll get him", said Claudia.

"Hello", he said.

"Rhys, I'm in labor and I'm scared! Can you come over?", asked Regan.

"Sure, I'll be right over", he said.

"That was Regan, she's in labor. I got to go", said Rhys.

"Yes, of course", said Claudia.

Then Rhys left to go to Regan's place.

Picket Fences! Part 49.2

Over at Regan Tyler's place . . .

She was in labor with her first baby and she was scared.

She tried to forget about the pain by thinking about how she got herself in this situation in the first place.

She was relieved when Rhys walked into the livingroom.

Seeing the concerned expression on his face made her feel better. She continued with her labor . . .

And surprizingly delivered a beautiful baby girl.

"She's the the most beautiful baby I've ever seen?", said Regan.

They named their daughter Megan Grace. Megan has tan skin and brown hair like her daddy with green eyes like her mama.

Regan handed Rhys his daughter. He held her up so she could "talk to the baby".

He fed her a bottle of milk.

He changed her diaper.

Then he put her in her crib for a nap.

Rhys went back into the livingroom.

"What's the matter?", he asked, when he saw the sad look on Regan's face.

"I'm afraid I'm going to be an awful mother", she said.

"Don't worry about something that ain't even happened. You're going to be a wonderful mother", he said, "Let's sit down and talk about it.".

"What am I going to do when I have to work in the studio?", she said.

"We can put an extra crib upstairs next to your desk. That way you can keep an eye on her while you're working", said Rhys.

"She's going to be an toddler before long. Then what am I going to do with her?", said Regan.

"See, there you go again. Worrying about something that ain't even happened", he said.

"I'll come back to see y' all tomorrow", he said.

Then he gave her a tender kiss goodbye . . .

Before he left to go home.

Megan woke up from her nap . . .

And began teaching Regan how to be a mother.

Across town Jonathan and Shannan Henry have moved their family to a new place.

The family was in the livingroom.

"What do you guys think about the house?", asked Jonathan.

"I think it's a cool place. There's a lot more space than the houseboat had", said Nathan.

Sean was snuggling on the sofa with his mom.

"I'm going to miss the houseboat, since it was the place where we became a family. It's going to be nice having a big yard for the boys to play in.
The following morning . . .

"These pancakes are great", said Jonathan, "I hope you boys find beautiful wives who can cook."

"I ain't never getting married", said Sean, "I'm going to be like "Uncle" Rhys."

"There ain't no girl who'd marry you anyway."

"I'd like to get married one day, but I want to be a Professional Party Guest like Dad before I do."

The school bus soon arrived.

Picket Fences! Part 50

Across town at Joyce's old house . . .

Her grandaughter Arlene, her husband Jimmy and their son David moved in.

Jimmy carried David into the house. He sit him down on the floor of the nursery. He gave the toddler his favorite toy to keep him entertained

Jimmy and Arlene were drinking coffee in the kitchen after they had finished what needed to be done.

"I didn't ever see the inside of this house while your grandma lived here. It's a great little house", said Jimmy.

"I've always liked it. Grandma just went a little overboard with the pink. I did leave the pink flowered wallpaper in her bedroom . . . I mean our bedroom", said Arlene.

"Let's invite Nathan and Julie over. I'd love for them to see the house", said Arlene.

Jimmy called Nathan and invited him over.

"Yeah, I'd love to come see you guys. I'll be there in a few minutes."

Arlene called Julie and invited her over.

"I'd love to see how your house. I'll be right over."

When Nathan and Julie arrived they gave each other a romantic kiss.

Then they went into the house together.

"The house really looks nice. I love the wallpaper in this room", said Julie.

"We changed all the wallpaper except for the one in Grandma's bedroom. It's really a pretty print and I'd like to keep it to remember her by. Well, at least for awhile", said Arlene.

"My grandparents have decided to go to Florida to live. They said Nathan and I can live in their house", said Julie.

"Their house is the one right next door. It's going to be great to have y'all as neighbors", said Jimmy.

"Our kids will be able to play together and be best friends", said Arlene.

"I can't think of anyone I'd rather have as neighbors than you and Arlene

Arlene invited Julie and Nathan to stay for supper. She fixed a big plate of spagetti and served it to their guests.

"When we get married and Julie learns how to cook, we'll invite you guys over for supper", said Nathan.

"I know how to cook a little. My grandma gave me her cookbook. She said she wouldn't need it in Florida", said Julie.

"Did y'all hear the lastest news? Your neighbor Rhys Sawyer has another baby", said Jimmy.

"Who's the baby's mama?", asked Nathan.

"That pretty redheaded photographer who has a studio over on Main Street", said Jimmy.

"Her name's Regan Tyler. I met her when I moved into my apartment. She seemed like a nice girl, but then you never know", said Arlene.

"I think it's a shame that Rhys keeps having all these babies, but evidently the women don't know how to say no to him", said Julie, "It's not all his fault."

Arlene, Julie and Jimmy went back into the livingroom to chat.

And Nathan went into the nursery to play with David.

David followed him back to the livingroom. Nathan told the toddler goodbye.

Then he and Julie said goodbye to Jimmy and Arlene . . .

Then left to go home.

At Rhys' place the next afternoon . . .

"Son, there's something I need to ask you to do for me", said Ryan.

"Sure Dad, what do you need?", asked Rhys.

"I want to buy Jonathan's houseboat, but I ain't got enough money. Will you loan me the rest?", he asked.

"Sorry, I can't loan you none", said Rhys.

"Well, just forget it! I should have known better than to ask", he said.

"Dad, I can't loan you the money, but I'll give you as much as you need", said Rhys, "If Grace had known you was still alive, half of everything I own would be yours."

Then Rhys gave his father a hug.

"Thank you son", said Ryan.

"Don't mention it", said Rhys.

Ryan called Jonathan and said "I want to buy your houseboat. Yeah, I got enough cash."

Ryan was cuddling in the hottub on the patio with Jennifer Custer, the townie he met at the lake.

They madeout.

"Can we do woo hoo now?", asked Ryan.

"Is that the only reason you called and invited me over?", she asked.

"Well . . . yeah. Ain't that the reason you came?", he asked.

"I thought when you called, it was because we had something special between us", she said.

"Hey, where you going!", he called.

"I got to get out!", she said.

"Oh NO! It can't be", she said when she got her first "baby bump"..

"Ryan, we got a problem!", said Jennifer.

"What's wrong?", he asked.

"If you get out and come here, you'll see", she said.

"Alright, what's the problem?", he asked.

"I just got my first baby bump. I'm pregnant", she said.

"Is it mine?", he asked.

"Of course it's yours. You're the only one I did woo hoo with", she said.

"Look, don't worry. I'll think of something", said Ryan.

"Well, you better think of something fast. This baby isn't going to wait too long", she said.

"I'll call you tomorrow. I promise", he said.

Then Jennifer left to go home.
