“Let’s toast some smore’s in the fireplace.” Eugene suggests
—Yancy: “Sounds good! But the fireplace is not in the same room with the TV, so how can we toast smore’s & watch movies at the same time?”

Klancy had found Eugene. He was inviting himself over for movie night at Chuck's.

Becky and Velma were, as usual, doing all the work and catering.
Becky was making more popcorn.
Velma was keeping up with demands for chili.

Eugene found a chair.
Klancy found the floor.

"We're ready for the next movie!" said Yancy.

"I'm not sure that was the best X-Men movie I've see. What's next Yancy?", asked Chuck. "Why it's 'X-Men United'!", answers Yancy. "Okay, I'm ready, pop it into the Blu-Ray!"

“Did you remember to pour melted butter on the popcorn?” Chuck inquires
—“Yep.” Becky answers
—Velma: “How about the grated cheese?”
—Chuck: “And the left over packets of Red Pepper flakes from Pizza Hut?
—Becky: “Yep, got it all right here. You can fix the popcorn just the way you want it! Which movie did you pick?”

Chuck lit a fire in the fireplace.
"That will warm us all up," he said as he snuggled into a chair ready for the movies.

"Who's making popcorn?" asked Velma.
Becky said, "Looks like me! No one else is moving from in front of the TV!"

“Becky, you got a deal!” Chuck agrees, shivering in the snow
—Back at the farm: Velma quickly fixes a big pot of chili
—Becky sets the table & prepares a salad
—While Chuck & Yancy debate (argue) about which movie they should watch first

And with that, they all forget about the "mine" and the hole they were digging, and head back to Chuck's Farm. Only Becky still seems to be interested in it, and she says, "I guess we'll come back here and dig some more when the weather warms up, right Chuck?"

Under a darkening sky, Chuck says: “Becky, move over a bit, you’re shadow is blocking the light.”
—Becky: “Ohhh. Chuck. You better speed it up. It’s not me. Looks like there’s a nasty storm coming.”

"Take that hole a little deeper and we'll see!" says Becky matter of factly.

Now they were all curious what may have been attached or not attached to the hand.

Suddenly Chuck stopped digging. "I don't know if this is worth all the effort it's taking Becky. It looks like a plastic head, just like that creepy hand," says Chuck. Becky asks, "Do you think its a mannequin or some kind of a doll?"

Quickly grabbing a shovel he found on the ground, Chuck starts digging.
"Careful Chuck!" yelled Becky, "You don't want to damage it!"

Becky knew Chuck could be careless when he had something in mind that just had to be done.

“Pull!!!” Yancy hollers, tugging on the trapped object
—Chuck grabs Yancy by the waist to help pull…but whatever it is won’t budge: “Help, Becky!”
—Becky grabs Chuck’s waist…but whatever it is still won't budge: “Wait! It’s buried too deep! Let’s dig it out.”

As he pulls the object out, they can see what it really is...

"Let's see!" said Chuck. He bent over and picked up a plastic hand, little dirty.

"Can I give you a hand?" said Chuck to Yancy, holding it in front of him.

“Klancy! Klancy!!!” Chuck yells, as Klancy dashes off
— “Chuck.? … Is it a real hand??” Becky asks, “What did you find under the hand?”
—Velma, leaving: “I just can’t take looking at that hand! I headed back to the house. Perhaps a nap will get that sight out of my mind.”

"Just a second, I don't think that's even a real hand. Wouldn't it just be bones by now... I mean if it was buried a long time ago?", asks Chuck. "Hey Klancy, bring that over here!" Klancy has other ideas, and he takes off back towards the farm.

Finding nothing interesting in the bushes, Klancy came over to Velma.

"Dig!" yelled Velma. And Klancy started digging.
Everyone stood and watched.

It wasn't long before Klancy hit something hard a foot down.

Everyone was now running in ever diminishing circles.

Chuck still dripping blood.
Yancy still holding on to his oil rag.
Becky trying to get Chuck's hand away from his new shirt.
Velma yelling "Is someone going to see what it is?"

Nothing being accomplished, Klancy began smelling around the bushes.

“Dang-nabbit!” Chuck yells, “I cut my hand on something sharp!”
—Becky: “Chuck, don’t you dare drip blood on those clothes! It’s hard to get out!”
—Velma, handing Chuck a dirty rag: “Here…Use this.”
—Yancy, grabbing the dirty rag: “Hey! That’s my oil rag! Don’t contaminate it with blood!”

“All I know, is that I’m looking at a big red ‘X’!” Chuck grumps
—“Where?” Becky inquires
—“Who would put a big red ‘X’ out here?” Yancy asks
—“What do you think…buried treasure...hidden riches…” Velma muses
—“Woof!” Klancy adds, hoping for something to either eat or chase

...really good tasting fish. It seemed the bear also knew about Chuck and Yancy's favourite fishin' hole.

Off he lumbered down the trail for some dessert to go with the first 3 courses of meal.

"Well now that the door is open, you still have some things to show me!" demanded Velma of Yancy.

Quietly, Klancy Dog trots up to Chuck & sniffs the air
—Quickly, Klancy’s fur bristles & he softly growls
—Quaking in his boots, Chuck whispers, “Guys…..Klancy is out here.”
—The growl gets louder…& closer…suddenly, a big bear appears
—Chuck, thinking quickly, grabs his catch, hangs 1 fish on the stuck mine door, yells “Hide! I’ll lure him out the door!”
—& while running for the closest tall tree, throws the rest of the fish on the ground, making a trail away from the mine
—Everyone dives for cover: behind or under anything they can find
—With a huge roar, the bear charges the stuck mine door, blasting it open as he escapes the mine, grabs & wolfs down all the fish…then he looks around for more……
