It’s amazing what rich folks do. This was one of the wedding presents Holly and I got from the Moodici family:
It’s no farm like the one we used to have, but there’s a little grassy area that my folks will be able to turn into a garden in no time:
My dad’s a little cam’ra-shy. You’ll have to excuse him for not looking up and smiling.
Ma and Pa are staying here with us until we can get the farm back. I don’t think Holly minds too much; she says Ma and Pa are pretty pleasant to be around. Pa always takes time to compliment her on every little thing, like her cooking:
She says it would have been mighty stressful back at her fam’ly Palazzo. I don’t know everything that’s going on, but things between her and her Ma seem a bit…frosty. It’s really none of my business.
What is my business is for me to do well in my Athletic career. That and score a little extra stuff on the side. You see, I ain’t told everyone yet, but I’m a Kleptomaniac, see. Things just disappear when I’m around:
Too bad that barstool I swiped was our own! It might take me a lil bit to get the hang of this, but just you wait and see. Soon I’ll be swiping enough so that Holly can have the pretty things she wants and Ma and Pa can get their farm back!
You see, some folks have way too much stuff in this town.
Take the Lessen home, for example.
Too many coffee tables (they got four in a lil pile in the living room!):
Too much goo-gaws on them walls (why have all that wallpaper if you’re just gonna cover it up with a huge TV?):
And too many cars (think about your carbon footprint, folks!):
How many cars does one man need? My folks are still riding around on lil bicycles! Ma and Pa will love this:
I’m sure Papa Nick will be happy ’bout this. He’s a professional crook himself. And he’s also into athletic-type stuff, so I’m sure we’ll have plenty to talk about. He and Ma Vita, and Niccolo, still live over at their official Palazzo, just across the courtyard from us:
Holly’s still a little nervous about living so close to her folks, but I think things will work out. Living near family will come in handy once the baby’s born. Oh, did I forget to mention that? We have a lil one on the way!
