“Lord Have Mercy!” Yancy intently whispers, as everyone leans closer to listen…
—“That door slowly creaked open. I called out ‘Hello, anyone home?’, but no one answered. I just couldn’t resist peeking inside…I couldn’t believe my eyes! It looked just like a Hobbit Hole!
—Eugene, confused: “A rabbit hole???”
—Yancy, disgusted: “Rabbit Hole!!! Didn’t you see the movie?! It looked just like a Hobbit Hole!”
—(Chuck, Becky & Velma were quietly chuckling.)
—Eugene, still confused: “Was Roger Rabbit there?”

"Klancy and I had gone for a walk in the backwoods by my old finshin' hole." began Yancy.
"I came upon a hill with a door that said 'For Sale'."

"I knocked on the door and..."

“Just when did you own a silver mine???” interrupts Velma
—Chuck, puzzled & stopping to think: “Yea…, Uncle Yancy!! Just when did you own a silver mine???”
—Yancy, suddenly shy & grinning sheepishly: “Awe Shucks! You guys! It was a long time ago.”
—Velma: “Spill it, Yandy!!! Or I’ll…”
—Yancy quickly interrupts: “Well, it was like this…….”

"I told that boy to go get the equipment running, Becky!", says Chuck. "Eugene, why are you here, and not out in the barn working on the tractors?", he continues. Eugene replies, "I want to hear the story too! Come on Yancy, tell us the rest!"

"How did Eugene get in here?" asked Becky.
"Stick to the topic!" said Velma.

"Silver! That was what was in the box!" said Yancy.
"Came from a silver mine I once owned," said Yancy.

"Gold! I'll bet there was gold in there!", says Eugene.
"No Eugene it wasn't gold," says Yancy.
"Gems! I'll bet there were gems in that old box!", says Becky.
"Sorry Becky, no gems", says Chuck.

Fascinated, Becky asked: “What was in the box?”
—Chuck, enjoying his audience: “You’ll never guess!”
—Velma, annoyed but oozing with curiosity: “Yancy! What was in the box?! …”

"Easy!" said Chuck as he reached for his fishing knife.
Chuck was able to open the lock and the box.

"Look what's inside!" said Carl.

"Digging for worms along the bank, we hit something that sounded like metal. Carl wanted to see what it was, so Chuck and him dug it up. It was a very rusty old metal box, maybe about 6 inches square, and it had a padlock on it."

"Carl, Yancy's second cousin, was in town," started Chuck.
"Yancy's telling the story!" said Becky as she started to get out the waffle iron.

Yancy began, "Well, we started at the fishin' hole." Velma added, "Why do these adventures always start at the fishin' hole?"

“Banana Caramel Waffles!” Chuck mused, interrupting Yancy’s story, “What can I confess, so Becky will make Banana Caramel Waffles for me!?
—Velma & Becky trade an amused glance that says: ‘Hmmm! Now we know how find out everything the guys have been up to!”

"All right," agreed Yancy.

He sat down at the kitchen table to wait for waffles and started the story.

“Yancy,” Becky cajoles (just oozing with curiosity), “What happened? What did you do?”
—Yancy, heading toward the door: “Don’t recall.”
—“Yancy, I’ll make some Banana Caramel Waffles, if you tell me.” Becky cajoles even more…

Xitty was now guarding the mouse outside.

"Yancy, you have been stretching the truth for years!" said Velma.
"Velma, I wouldn't lie to you about a mouse!" said Yancy, remembering what happened 5 years ago.

“Would I lie?” Yancy asks, somewhat insulted & injured
—Velma, exasperated: “Only if you thought you could get away with it!”
—Yancy, indignant: “VELMA!!!”
—Velma: “Remember when you… (Chagrinned, Yancy interrupts: “Let’s not mention that!”).”

Under the deck runs Klancy, still with Xitty attached.

Finally, Xitty lets go and jumps off, in hot pursuit of the mouse.

Taking a flying leap, Xitty tackles Klancy…a full body slam…wrapping her paws around his nose & growling, she bites his ear (clamping on like a snapping turtle & worrying that ear like a dog with a bone)
—Klancy, traumatized, dashes out the door…with Xitty still clamped on tight, riding his neck like a miniature jockey

Klancy quietly crawled under a chair and went back to sleep.

Quickly, (faster than lightening…) Xitty boxes Klancy’s nose a dozen times before Klancy can blink! …or duck!
—“OOOOOOO!!!” Klancy yelps, quickly backing up
—“Yeak!” the mouse happily squeaks, & taking advantage of the situation…dashes toward the nearest place of safety

“Now just you wait a minute!” Xitty growls, “That’s my mouse!! Hand it over, Buster!!”
—Klancy growls back: “Buster!! My name’s Klancy!!! This mouse is mine! I caught it fair & square!”
—The mouse squeaks: “I’m my own mouse!!!! Let me go NOW!!!”

Mouse ran out from under the couch, closely pursued by Xitty. Out to the front porch, around Klancy twice, finally ending up between Klancy's paws.

Klancy was still sleeping on the porch, oblivious that Xitty had left. He rolled over nonchalantly, just as Xitty disappeared under the couch.

“Help!!!” Velma squeals, sitting on top of the table
—Becky, walking into the room: “What are you hollering about? … Velma, why are you sitting on that table??”
—Velma, still shaken & tearful: “MmmmMouse! I was napping on the couch & it jumped on my shoulder! I woke up; it looked me in the eye & smirked!!! I screamed; it ran down my side, down my leg & jumped off my bare foot!!!”
—Becky, frowning & wrinkling her nose: “Ewwe! Where is it now?”

"This will keep us busy for a while!" added Yancy.

Chuck woke up and said, "You know guys, we have work to do! It's harvest time. Look at all that corn! Plus we got livestock to care for. Lets go! Yancy, wake up!" Klancy jumped up and wagged his tail. Everyone else continued to snooze.

Becky moved around and pulled up the blanket to keep her warmer on the front porch.

Klancy and Xitty continued sleeping, enjoying the late afternoon sunshine.

“Zzzzzz.” Becky quietly snores while soaking in the mud bath
—“Zzzzzz! ZZttt!” Klancy is snoring on the porch; but wakes up when Xitty walks up his back, snuggles under his chin & settles in for a nap too. After giving her one of those: ‘I’m very annoyed with you’ glares, Klancy settles back & resumes his nap. “Zzzzz!!”

Xitty appeared on the porch and ended up sleeping next to Klancy.
She wasn't hungry, just wanting to see what everyone else was up to.

"And upstairs is the buffet," adds Velma.

—Becky: “Me too! How about a spa day?
—Velma, grinning: “Great idea! How about a morning of being pampered, & lunch at a nice Mexican restaurant?”
—Becky, also grinning: “Followed by an afternoon lazing around by the pool—napping, sipping sweet tea, reading & a few lazy dips in the pool. Ending with a fantastic buffet?”
—Velma: “Mmm! Sounds perfect! Where do we go to start?
