During our meeting the FED informed homesteaders about applying for federal jobs. The FED is now taking applications for Bank Manager, Radio Station Manager, Trading Post Kidager, Town Clerk, Moderator, and Secretary. Applications are due in by next Tuesday at lunchtime, interviews will commence after swimming on Tuesday, July 10th. A few peeps have already applied! Rolph and Mr.PeepT are looking forward to interviewing the peeps!
Jared introduced us to Jeff Adams. He is a scientist who mainly works with potions. Jeff is 28 years old, very tall and cannot see without his monocle. He makes new discoveries everyday. Jeff wears a monocle because during a very bad experiment, his eye fell out. He has discovered that pop rocks and coke don't mix. Saul wondered if Jeff might be able to help him with his paralyzation. Jeff informs us that he only works with potions. Perhaps he can help cure Saul's skin condition? Tarzan would like a potion to help his leaf stay on. Jeff is working on a sticking potion. The rest of the community would like it if Jeff discovered a potion for pants. This would be possible because Jeff currently has a potion that takes ordinary seeds and changes them to grow extraordinary things, such as: nickels, dimes, coffee cups, blackboards, socks. "Please don't make a hair removal potion!"
Dalton introduces Morton. Morton is about 30 years old and is a fan of moonshine. "I sadly report that my still is broken, my family is in a shambles. The old still on the hill broke!" We are unsure how tall Morton is because we cannot measure him, he is usually flat on his back, drunk. Apparently a bad cat was to blame for the trouble with the still. Morton finds it inspirational that the Mountain Dew song has verses about him and his family. Morton has a dirty beard. Morton and Jacques are enemies because of Morton's drunkenness and Jacques's accent.
After meeting the group split up to prioritize. The first priority today was to finish peeps, after that homesteaders need to build and finish their primitive shelters, next fence their properties, then job applications. Everyone now has a peep and a primitive shelter. The peeps will be staying in their primitive shelters this weekend. I hope they survive!
