"Mighty fine afternoon," said Becky to Velma.

Both were sitting on the front porch, watching the world go by and waiting for the pies to cool.

Klancy, who followed the boys to the fishing hole, decided to have a nap too.

Just so they could say they were fishing, the guys rigged the fishing poles so any bite would wake them… (Imagine a line tied to their toe, ankle or finger)

"I think I'm going to have a little nap," said Chuck.
"I think I'm going to have a little nap," said Yancy.
"I think I'm going to have a little nap," said Eugene.

Not much fishing was accomplished after that.

"Gone Fishin'" said the sign left where the pies used to be.

Eugene didn't want to miss an opportunity to make Becky mad at Chuck.

“Fishin’!” Eugene states, “I saw Becky hide 3 pies out on the back porch, under a dish towel. We need to grab a couple & go fishin’ while the weather is nice.
—Yancy, grinning: “Great idea! Grab your fishing gear & the pies. I’ll grab the chips & make ham sandwiches. Chuck can tote the hooch. We’ll have a great time fishin’!

Delicately, Velma cut the pies & Becky slid a piece of each onto 3 plates
—Chuck, Yancy & Eugene each grabbed a plate & took a bite: “That’s the homemade crust!” they chorus
—Hesitantly, they each take a bite of the other pie: “But it tastes the same!” again they chorus
—“I guess store-bought crust is OK.” Yancy reluctantly concedes as the ladies grin
—Later, Velma to Becky: “OK, how did you do it?”
—Becky: “Both pies had store-bought pie crust, so of course they tasted the same. Now we can stop making pie crust, except for special occasions.”

"We'll have to see if the pies taste the same!" said Yancy.

"That will require a couple of pieces to tell for sure!" said Chuck.

Xtremely loud noise as the burn barrel explodes. "Too much kerosene, Chuck!" he says to himself.

As the debris was floating down, Chuck spied some flat boxes slowly floating to the ground.

"We'll see Chuck. Probably", says Velma. Chuck squirts some kerosene into the barrel and then drops a match in. Soon the trash is burning furiously.

“Velma,” Chuck yells, “do you want me to torch the burn barrel?”
—“It sure needs it.” Velma yells back (high-fiveing Becky, with a grin)
—Chuck, anticipating getting out of other chores: “Will the pies be ready by the time the fire is out?”

Under everything, at the bottom of the burn barrel is where Becky put the boxes.

Chuck, working on chores, found some tree cuttings in the animal pen and headed to the burn barrel to get rid of them.

“That’ll keep them busy while we clean the peaches & fix the pies.” Velma smirks
—Becky: “And they’ll never know we used store-bought pie crusts!”
—Velma: “To keep our secret, we will have to burn the boxes before the guys get back from chores!”

Off they go to the grocery store. Chuck, Yancy and Eugene look up from their pile of cow chips to wonder where the girls are going.

"Do you still think they are mad?" asks Yancy.
"No, Yancy, they are up to something!" said Chuck.

“Nabisco Pie Crust!!!” Velma squeals like a teenager, “Becky!! Put all those ingredients back, we can but Nabisco Pie Crusts instead!
—Becky, delighted: “Yippee! That’ll save us a lot of time & we can freeze the pie crusts that we’ve already made for something really special!”

Making all that pie crust was the biggest problem. They didn't have enough lard, and then discovered the flour was all used up too. "Off to the grocery store I guess!", said Becky.

"I'll help you, Velma. That is a lot of work for one person."

"Let's hope those boys bring back enough peaches!" said Velma.

“Keep on walking out to the peach orchard, Yancy.” Velma yells
—“Bring back a bunch of peaches & I’ll bake you 3 peach pies!”
—“Yippee!!” Yancy yells as he runs toward the peach orchard
—“I want 3 peach pies too!” Chuck & Eugene trade looks & dash after Yancy
—Becky: “Be sure you wash all that cow pattie stuff off before you start picking those peaches!”
—Velma: “Does that mean I’ve promised to make 9 peach pies?”

"Juicy, deliciuous, peach pie... that's all I wanted was one little tiny miniscule piece of that juicy peach pie... and you had to ruin it all for me Eugene! Waaaaaaa!!!", and with that, Yancy goes storming off like a little kid.

“Hey!! Watch where you’re aiming!!” Becky suddenly screams, “That last cow pattie almost hit me!”
—Chuck chuckles, takes a bite of pie & lets out a hideous roar
—Becky tips out of her chair in surprise & falls off of the porch
—while Eugene & Yancy freeze in place, patties lifted high, ready to throw (un-noticed, Eugene’s current & very fresh cow pattie drips into his hair)
—Chuck, spitting pie, out of control & way past irate: “YOU HIT MY PIE!!! I’LL GET YOU!!!”
—Chuck flies off of the porch, grabbing the pitch fork on the way…

Flailing around like a jack-rabbit was Yancy, now on the receiving end of the cow chips.

"Darned if I know!" said Chuck to Becky. They were still watching the antics of Yancy and Eugene.

“EUGENE!!! STAND STILL SO I CAN HIT YOU!!!” Yancy screams, holding another cow pattie ready
—Eugene stops, sticks his fingers in his ears, waggles them & sticks out his tongue: “Na-naw, na-naw, can’t hit the broad side of the barn!”
—Yancy lets fly…& the cow pattie hits Eugene square in the face
—“Pssffft, pssfffft, pssfffft!!!” Eugene sputters, then dashes over to the water trough to wash the cow pattie off his tongue, off his face & out of his hair
—Eugene, angry, red faced & dripping wet, turns, grabs up a fresh new cow pattie: “YANCY!!! I’ll get you back, you lily livered, slimy pole cat!!!”
—Becky, thoroughly entertained: “What exactly does ‘lily livered’ mean?”

Chuck sat back and watched the entertainment being presented in front of him. He knew Yancy would get over it quickly. He always did.

Becky offered him a piece of blueberry pie while he sat watching.

She knew better than to offer him any of the hidden hooch that Chuck and Yancy had been looking for.

“Zowie! My favorite!” Eugene ate the pie that Velma had set out for Yancy
—“ZZZ!@$$%!!!” After hanging the new curtains & rods, Yancy came to get his pie…just as Eugene ate the last bite
—Yancy, turning red & sputtering: “You…you…you dirty rotten sneak, you ate my pie!”
—Eugene, sensing impending trouble: “Your pie?” Out the door he goes, with Yancy close behind

"Yancy, before you eat your pie could you help me with a little chore?", asks Velma. "Oh no, not again", whines Yancy, "what is it now?" "Just a few new curtains and new rods need hanging", says Velma. Of all the things Yancy hated doing, it was installing new curtain rods. "Why?", he asked, "what is wrong with the old stuff?"
