Timber Bottle Mail #11

Timber was dark and stormy when I finally got around to playing tonight. I almost felt bad forcing Pines out of his warm bed to brave the rain!

I had two new letters in my mailbox: my weekly evaluation from the Happy Home Academy, and a quick letter from my mom. The Academy’s letter was pretty positive compared to what I’ve been receiving the past few weeks. Mom’s, on the other hand, not so much…

Darwin was one of many neighbours splashing around town. He informed me that the rain hadn’t let up all day.

It’s been so hot and dry in the UK for a good few weeks now, so I’ve been enjoying the showers in Timber, even if I can’t experience them firsthand! Icon_0028_Jacobs-ladder

I bumped into Lucy by the river. She remained her usual positive self, despite the gloomy weather.

Baabara was the third villager I encountered on the way to my hybrid gardens. She had unearthed some old diary. Icon_0011_Shovel

Given that I never really got stuck into Wild World the same way I did City Folk, I’d never seen this dialogue before – so that was pretty exciting! She asked me to pick a page to read, and I chose somewhere between the middle and the final entry.

Our chilling discovery left Baabara pale with fright. Would we ever be able to move past the horrors we had read in that diary? I suppose only time will tell…

In other news, I found my third orange pansy today! I decided to combine it with the other two to make their own miniature breeding garden.

Despite his miraculous recovery, Rocco was still shut away inside his house.

OR how about you stay inside, alone and I’ll go talk to the villagers that actually appreciate my time and wouldn’t reward me with a kiddie wall if I was to cure what one can only presume was the Black Death, itself?

Two new posts on the bulletin board outside the town hall reminded me that the Bug Off and La-Di-Day were fast approaching. This weekend should be fun! Icon_0018_Music-note

A pretty interesting ‘Talking to Myself’ message and a deeply disturbing Message of the Week had also been posted.

It was only now that I realised a new house had popped up on the map to replace Bunnie’s!

Gabi had moved into Timber yesterday without me noticing! She’s a cutie, so I’m happy to have her.

I also decided to drop in on Marina, who was sheltering inside her house. Weird, I’d have though she of all my villagers would appreciate a little water!

It’s nice to see she isn’t regretting her decision to stay put in town.

My final stop of the night was The Roost for a hot cup of coffee. Phyllis was also there, fuelling up before her shift started, no doubt.

… And she was as pleasant as can be expected, really. Looks like she also isn’t too thrilled about the rain.

And with that, I grabbed a cup of my own and called it a day in Timber.

Until next time, friends! Icon_0027_Lucky-clover

Side note: I failed to shoot down Gulliver’s UFO for the third time tonight. I’m genuinely considering starting a tally.
