A Fantastic Bucket

Yesterday, Boots was telling me how to use the camera to take screenshots. Of course, I already knew how to do that. 😛 But since he suggested that I take a picture of him, I went ahead and snapped a pic.

Boots: OK! Cheeeeese!Big Top asked me for a cherry tonight, so I picked one for him. He enjoyed it, and he rewarded with a “fantastic” bucket.

Big Top: A fantastic piece of fruit deserves a fantastic gift! Here--take my bucket!Lily told me that she was planning on moving out of town on the first of this month. That would be impossible, since it’s already the 22nd. But clearly, she meant the first of next month. Last November’s Welcome Amiibo update “fixed” fun things like net glitching, and yet mistakes like this are still in the game.

Lily: Well, that really resonated with me. So I've decided to move on the 1st of this month.
You’re not going anywhere, this month or next.

It’s Saturday night, so I made a trip into Club LOL to catch a performance from K.K. Slider. He played K.K. Bossa for me. Octavian and Peck were also there to enjoy the show, sitting on opposite sides of the club of course.

K.K. Slider performs for Octavian, Jeff, and Peck in Animal Crossing: New Leaf (ACNL) for Nintendo 3DS.Back in town, I enjoyed a short visit with Bob on the yellow bench.

Camofrog: On days like this, I want to down a cup of buttermilk and refresh myself by working up a sweat!

My recent dream visitors have been Emma from Minitown and Melody from Pink Sea. Thanks for stopping by!

Fishing for Camofrog

The mailbox of Booker (my 2nd character, not the dog) filled up recently, so I switched characters to clear out his mail. One of his letters was from Isabelle, and it was about the town’s anniversary back on May 2nd. It included a sapling clock. So apparently, every character will get one. Not just the mayor.

Dear Booker, May 2nd will mark 4 years of our mayor presiding over this town! To honor his time in office, every villager will get a special celebratory gift! -Isabelle from Town HallAnyway, Peewee the gorilla was camping at the campsite today. The gorillas aren’t one of my favorites species.

Peewee: I heard the local specialty is one of my favorites, the peach! I love this town! GAHAHA!I found Gulliver down on the beach, talking about maple syrup. Before he started getting too sappy, I informed him that Canada is the country he was headed to. He’ll be sending me a gift from there tomorrow.

Gulliver: Oh! My beloved maple syrup! Please tell me you've heard of this country! You've gotta!Camofrog asked me for a butterfly fish tonight, and I really wanted to help him out (so that maybe I could get his picture). So I went down to the ocean and started fishing. I wasn’t having much luck finding a butterfly fish, but I was catching some other valuable fish and bugs. Sharks, blue marlins, red snappers, and several types of tree bugs.

After half an hour of fishing, I decided to give up. I saw a small fish shadow near the ramp back up to town, and I told myself that would be my last try. And surprisingly enough, that was a butterfly fish!

I caught a butterfly fish! As mayor, welcome to my pockets!So I took it over to Camofrog, and he rewarded me with…some slate flooring. How disappointing, after all that work. Ugh.

But on the bright side, all those fish and bugs I caught earned me some big bells. In fact, I earned enough to kick my bank account balance over 101 million bells.

Your current balance is 101,040,000 bells.Of course, I keep forgetting that I don’t have to go up to the post office to deposit money. I could do it in my own house, thanks to my ABD.

Luna told me my recent dream visitors have been Hayley from Phoenix, Shawna from Seashell, Levi from Forest, and Pansy from Salazar. Boots also mentioned dreaming of Nathan from Oldwell. Thanks for stopping by!

July Bug-Off

Yesterday, I got this conical straw hat in the mail from Gulliver in Vietnam.

Wearing a conical straw hat that Gulliver sent me from Vietnam.Today, Squishy came over to smuggle sell some oranges at Re-Tail.

Squishy arrives in Forest.As she was selling, I picked some peaches and put a basket of them in my storage. When I came back out of my house, I apparently scared Squishy. I guess she didn’t know where I was, and then I suddenly appeared. Maybe she was just afraid that I was Copper, about to sniff out her illegal fruit smuggling ring. 😛

When she was done, I ended the session and put my 3DS in sleep mode. I picked it back up later on, and I found some fresh perfect oranges right in front of the train station. Thanks, Squishy! I’ll be sure to give these to my villagers as I try to squeeze them into giving me their pictures. 😉

Finding some perfect oranges on the ground by the train station.I spotted a bug on my tree stump, so I got my net out and caught it. It was a longhorn beetle. Since the July Bug-Off was being held today, I decided to give that beetle to Nat. He judged it and gave it a score of 62 points.

Nat: 62 points!That was enough to put me in first place, and Nat gave me a minimalist lamp. A light, simple reward.

I didn’t try to top that score, and I just waited out the Bug-Off. Later on, I returned for the winners’ ceremony. Aurora got third place with a 35-point snail, Rolf got second place with a 47-point walking stick, and my longhorn beetle hung on to win. Yay.

I celebrate a Bug-Off win. Rolf won 2nd place and Aurora got 3rd place.

My recent dream visitors have been Nelly from Spirit (yesterday) and then today, MaryAnn from Tropical! That’s a familiar name! Hi Yann, if you happen to read this!
