New Mouse House

A message posted on the bulletin board tonight informed me that Tom Nook was selling a skeleton! I wonder who it belonged to. And did Tom Nook kill that person himself, or did he hire someone to do it? But also, why is a skeleton being sold at a convenience store??

- Nook Special - We got a very special item in today! Yes, it's a skeleton!There was a new house in town, and there was a mouse inside. For a split second, I wondered if Broccolo was moving out. But the mouse was actually Rod, and he is just moving in. I previously had Rod in my town of Bananas back in 2012-2013.

Rod: Good to met you. This is my first day living here. They call me Rod.
Welcome to Forest, Rod!

Chow the panda was having trouble dealing with the summer heat lately. He said being hairier than other guys was causing him to sweat a lot…

Chow: Since I'm hairier than the average guy, this time of year's torture for me.
Too much information, pal.

Savannah told me that she tries to find good things about everyone she meets, but she was having trouble finding anything good about Twiggy! I’m not a huge Twiggy fan or anything, but that is kinda harsh!

Savannah: But I'm starting to think I can't find anything good about Twiggy at all... Y'all.There were lots of beetles out on trees tonight, so I made sure to catch a bunch of them to earn some extra money. Even though I don’t really need the money, it’s still fun to snag a bunch of the valuable bugs. 🙂

Now that I have ten villagers again, I’ll be recording clips for my next video in the coming days. It’s not a huge project, so it shouldn’t take too long. If all goes well, I’ll have it up by next week. And maybe even this weekend. Stay tuned!

Beak Dancing

I received Mac’s goodbye letter in the mail today. It was nice knowing you, dawg.

Mac's goodbye letter.Speaking of dogs, many of my villagers have been calling me “old dog” lately. That includes ugly duck Gloria, who told me she hasn’t seen me for a while.

Gloria: Oh! It's you, old dog! I haven't seen you for a while, quacker.
And I don’t see you now. Not that I’m complaining.

I made a couple of deliveries tonight: Gloria had me take a one-ball shirt to Broccolo, and Static asked me to take a lattice wall to Chow. My rewards weren’t anything special: Gloria gave me a shanty mat and Static rewarded me with 520 bells.

Twiggy was sick with a cold, so I bought some medicine for her from Nook ‘n’ Go. She gulped it down and started beak dancing! 😛

Twiggy takes her medicine.Mac’s replacement will likely move in by next week. Once that happens, I plan on making a new ACCF video for later this month. Even though I made the AC Star Fox crossover video in May, and my annual slideshow last November, I haven’t made a proper ACCF video since the fireworks festival last August. So stay tuned for that.

Packed Mac

I had a feeling I might find one of my villagers packed up and ready to leave town, and that suspicion proved to be true. The very first house I entered tonight was Mac’s, and he’s about to hit the road, Mac.

Mac: So, I'm gonna be packing up and moving. It'd be a waste to keep biceps like these in one town.I’m sad to see my doggy run away from home…but at least it wasn’t Savannah or Static.

Outside, I met an electrician who wanted to re-wire the museum.

Static: Electrician here. Can I talk at ya for a sec?
You’re holding a fishing rod. You’re no electrician!

Actually, it was Static and he just wanted a new greeting. I told him to start saying “Bzzzt! Wrong!” That’ll come in handy if he ever hosts his own game show. Hey, that’s no less likely than him becoming an electrician!

Even though I’ve been playing ACCF just once a week for a while now (except in April/May when I was playing more for video clips), I rarely have lost any hybrids or Jacob’s ladders. Sure, many of them would be wilted each time, but it was rare to find any completely gone.

But that was not the case this time. Most of my (non-gold) hybrids, including all but three of the 12+ purple roses at Bob’s grave, were gone. Almost all of my Jacob’s ladders too. It had been 8 days since I played last, but that’s not that unusual for me. I’m really not sure what happened this time. It’s not a big deal or anything, but it does seem a bit odd.

Many flowers were missing from Bob's grave.And now that July is here, the full smorgasbord of summer bugs is now available. I made sure to catch some of the most tasty valuable ones, including this crunchy 8,000 bell cyclommatus. Happy bug hunting, everyone!

I caught a cyclommatus! Aw, it's so pretty!
