Day 17

Where does the time go?  The day after tomorrow is our big appraisal day!  I can't believe that homesteaders are not the least bit stressed out by this, I know I am!  Our day began with more new letters, this bothers some but keeps others on their toes and ultimately is more fun for me to greet each of the homesteaders with a quiz rather than barking orders at them.  Today's letters: PWTPTCS.  This one was so hard that I couldn't even remember all of the letters!  I'd say ask your homesteader but they probably don't remember.  Pin Water Tractor Peep Town Center (S)chaperone!

Before we could get started with some singing, Emmett went ahead and rolled on the bag of gifts that Lilly brought for Rolph.  Emmett really, really, really likes cat poo!  He rolled for a bit, then ran off, then came back for more!  It was one of our high points, everyone was laughing.  After his roll-fest, Emmett then tormented the homesteaders by asking for attention and petting.  As pictured below, no one wanted anything to do with him!  In honor of this very dirty escapade, we changed the words to several songs to accommodate the moment.  We sang Brown Dog to the tune of Black Socks and we featured Emmett's dirty, llittle habit in our This Way That Way pirate song.  We also gave the Mermaid Song another try.

The selectpeeps informed us that it has come to their attention (at their meeting yesterday) that there is a need for a no trespassing law.   They have drafted such a law.  No trespassing must be posted very clearly on the property and the property's boundaries must be very clear (a good fence).  The fine for trespassing may not be more than 10 emmetts per step.  There is no maximum amount on this fine.  Also, the town is sponsoring the sign making.  There is no trickery clause within the law, so if you invite (or lure) someone to your land and it is posted as no trespassing the visitor may have to pay the fine as the property holder sees fit.
The plan o'the day sprouted a second set of legs!!

Everyone tries to keep away
 from Emmett!

Our next move was onto the land.  We got a brief glimpse of many properties and the improvements thereon.  After that we went Berzerk!
