So, I said before that law enforcement didn’t pay, and that Fabian only brought about 1100 Simoleons into the family. But I failed to mention that he brought 1100 simoleons and a TOFUNDA WAGON. The two Sample vehicles now cancel each other out in terms of fuel efficiency.
Law enforcement does pay, apparently. It just doesn’t pay for money management classes.
So what HAS everyone been up to in the Sample house?
Zahra was still on maternity leave. She tried to stop fighting it and relax.
Then she gave up relaxing and took up inventing.
Charles asked Lance for some help on his homework, and Lance dragged him to the park instead.
“It’s evening, m’boy! That’s your best time! Let’s throw the old pigskin around!”
“You’ll get the hang of it, kiddo! Just don’t give up!”
Fortunately, there were some things were Charles already had the upper hand.
“Stop! I call uncle! That’s a mean game of tag! You sure know how to wear an old man out.”
Fabian spent some time trying to connect with his wife’s Egyptian roots.
Which was probably a lost cause.
Layla had truly become one with her golden years. She had never felt so comfortable and fulfilled.
She had the best private garden in the city. (I totally failed to note when she achieved her Perfect Garden Lifetime Wish.)
She had a wonderful husband, successful children, and amazing grandchildren who loved her.
(The No Jealousy reward definitely helped her marriage.)
She had his and hers running NFL Madden 12
(These really were taken at the same time.)
Ada was into everything, of course.
As she grew older and could communicate better, she and Charles had more fun together every day.
Grady Elfman the maid hit on Shanni a couple of times, and she agreed to meet him in the park.
Big mistake. The guy couldn’t stop talking about his hair gel.
But there she ran into the Ursines out on a family picnic.
Including the elusive Harvey.
Family was a good excuse to get out of a date gone bad, so Shanni ditched him and spent the afternoon with them. And she was glad she did. That evening, Rachel’s precarious health took another turn for the worse, and she died the next day. She must have been over 100. RIP, Rachel.
(I’m back! Ah the Simfail I have to rant about. But first we needed some cheerful stuff after all of the relationship drama.)
