What's a guy to do? Part VI - The End

Upon finding out that Pete had
three more entries to his underground condo
via the adjoining three neighbours backyards,
Stanley decided in order to ensure the
happiness and well being of his marriage to Catherine,
he should 'live and let live'
and hence gave up trying to 'discourage' Pete
from living under his shed.

Pete continued to live a long and enjoyable life
living under Stanley's shed,
eating neighbour Steve's vegetables,
munching on neighbour Dell's perennials,
and scampering through neighbour Joe's sprinklers.

Although Pete never did receive
the extension cord from Stanley
in order to plug in his jacuzzi,
Pete decided to skip the jacuzzi
and put in a wet bar beside the pool instead.

Francine and the gang continued to
venture over to Pete's place
every Saturday night
for a dip in the pool
and some good eats.

The End.

or is it....

I sense a 'Squeekquel' before the end of summer...  ;)


And upon phoning Stanley and
asking him to pick a number between
1 and 42
he picked the number 26 for his birthday this week.

So the lucky winner
of the "How does it end?" comment is...

Linda R from "My Happy Place"!

This crafty, cat loving, photo loving gal
will soon be receiving a little gift for playing my game.

Send me your address Linda
and I will send it on it's way.

Thanks so much to all of you
for playing and I hope
you all have a super weekend!

If it's a long-weekend where you live
as it is here in Canada
have an extra good one!

Much love
xo Catherine

this is my favorite fairy tale of all times. waiting for the sequiel. I LOVE IT and God bless Stanley for allowing Pete to live happily ever after. I saw a toad jacuzzi today, it is on my side bar if you want to steal the plans to make one for pete.

Fuzzy Tales said...

If you can't beat 'em....LOL. Ah, we didn't realize Pete had other entrances to his house, but of course that makes sense. Ah, well. Live and let live is a good way to function!

Happy long weekend to you! Can you believe our next one will be Labour Day weekend? Yikes!

Catherine, this was such a joy to follow along! And very clever on your part. Yep, I think a squeekquel in in order!

That Petey is quite the excavator! Poor Stanley, all his hose water merely irrigated the neighbors' yards!

Congrats to Linda. And your ending was a good one. :)

Christine said...

Hope all goes well with your new neighbor. Happy long weekend, I so needed this one.

Mariette said...

Dearest Catherine,

This is so funny and what a happy ending that Pete marries YOU (Catherine, you wrote) and not Francine... Shows that you too were very much in love with him. They are such cunning and cute creatures and yes, live and let live!
Lots of love and a happy weekend and I did hop over already to Linda. Enjoy your long weekend!


Becca said...

I don't know what you do for a living, but maybe you should consider writing children's books?!

Great slapstick antics goin on w/ Pete & Stanley, for sure! =)
