Anything for a Friend...

I went as far as to put a voice activated recorder in Reggie's new house last night.  I got suspicious when he told me that he had purchased most of Tessie's furnishings. 

The first thing he wanted done was the repair of the floor and ceiling in her workroom...

That was easy enough.  I did that this morning.

Then I went to check on the conversation that they had the night before...

Tessie:  Is it working?
Reggie: I think so.  She is doing the repairs that I requested.

Tessie: That means that as soon as she is finished, I can move back in and you can have the Forest Fantasy Cottage.
Reggie: It shouldn't take more than a few days.  We will have achieved our collective objective.  New homes for us both!...
That's exactly what I thought!  Tessie wanted her house redone, so she put Reggie in place to get it done.

I will go along with the whole scheme for as long as it doesn't require all new anything... Cleaning and repair is all she gets...

Reggie suggested that I start with the roof garden and work down, after I got back from the Gem Show...

Yes.  I went back.  I decided that Zar needed more than one kind of bolt.  He now has enough to last him through the  next year, while I am working on his Steampunk Emporium.

I took everything out of Tessie's cabinet and cleaned it up.

In the process I found some things that I had forgotten that she had... I think that she did too. 

When I got all of the plants back in place on the clean floor, it looked pretty good.  Good enough, in fact that she forgot that it was supposed to be Reggie's roof top garden.  She took over..

It took a while, and the playing of the recording of their conversation, but I got her to admit to the ruse.  I did tell her that I would keep doing her house... If she didn't get to uppity.  The non uppity Tessie should last a couple of days... Then we will have to renegotiate.

Zar was overwhelmed with the bolts.  I also found him some batteries.  The ones draped over his foot...

The stuff on his other foot is all MINE!  He can't have all the fun!

I guess I should go back and work on Tessie's house now. 

She admitted that she really doesn't like the Forest Fantasy Cottage.  Not refined enough for her.  So... Reggie gets that and she gets her house remodeled... Somewhat.

Back to work.

See you tomorrow.

Hello Casey,
Those deceitful little devils! Your patience and kindness are exemplary Casey! Did anyone ever think of just asking you politely to do something?
Big hug

Giac, you should know by now. There is the easy way and there is Tessie's way.

Hi Casey. What's this? Tessie is NOT keeping the Forest Cottage. What a manipulator
she is!. But then you knew that!
