The Tuckers, Round 1 / First Love or... Old Wrinkly Love!
The Tuckers arrived in Apple Grove and hung out on the sidewalk until I suggested they go inside and take a look around.
While the family was inside getting settled in, two of the people from the Welcome Wagon were out front on the sidewalk duking it out.
It turns out that the blond lady is their next-door neighbor Grace Fletcher. She and the guy in the green shirt had several fights in which Grace got her butt kicked.
Grace's sister Beverly was there as well, and felt sorry for her. She tried to comfort her, but Grace didn't want a hug. She acted as though her own sister was a complete stranger. Maybe all that fighting gave her a concussion. But, as much as this is all very entertaining, this is supposed to be about the Tucker family, not the Fletchers.
The family all gathers in the kitchen around a big bowl of Sam's comfort soup. Catherine tries to feed Zoe by injecting a bowl of soup directly into her spine, but it didn't seem to work that well.
The smackdown of their neighbor Grace by the green-shirt guy continues... Meanwhile Kimberly tries to impress her mother and grandmother with her bowl-balancing act.
Awwww... Could anything be cuter than a spontaneous hug of two toddlers? Please don't ask me which boy is Brian and which one is Martin. In their pajamas they look too much alike. I'd have to see that bear hat again to know which one is Martin, and then by process of elimination I'd know the other kid is Brian.
Kimberly didn't waste any time getting her first kiss with the good-looking blond guy with the leather jacket whose name escapes me. First love can be so sweet.
While this on the other hand... Sam and Natalya kept rolling up wants to do... this in the car. Somehow it doesn't seem as sweet. I mean, I'm glad that they still love each other and all, but there's a little girl out on the sidewalk getting way too much information. I wish they would at least keep their passion a little more private. Thankfully, the little girl thinks that Harry and Ron are flying an enchanted car, so all is well. I'm still trying to figure out how a couple of elders have the flexibility to do this in a Chevette hatchback with bucket seats, but I digress.
Catherine thinks her neighbor Clinton Webb is really hot, although for some reason this makes her really ticked off. I guess she's still working through some anger issues related to her upcoming divorce.
I wish I had taken more pictures of the Tucker Family, but before I knew it, their week was over. I'm out of practice with sim blogging and kept forgetting to take pictures at first.
