"Xcess air, no!" yells Chuck. "They still fill you up!"

"Well, we are still out of marshmallows," adds Eugene.

"Whopping huge number I reckon!", says Chuck. "He ate about a bag and a half of them just this morning!" "Hey, they are mostly air, Chuck", says Eugene in his defense.

Velma: “Oh, all right. But when we get back, Eugene has to run to the store to buy marshmallows to replace all of the bags of marshmallows that he ate!”
—Becky: “Bags??? How could anyone eat a whole bag of marshmallows? (pause) How many did he eat?

“That’s dirty pool!!” Velma scowls at Eugene, “Just for that, when we get back, you get to clean out the barn!”
—Eugene, protesting: “But Velma, don’t you think that’s a bit strict!”
—Velma: “Your choice: Clean the barn, or, no pizza now.”
—Eugene (who loves pizza), turning pale: “But Velma!...”

"Somebody has this all planned out!" says Eugene.
"Might have to wait a bit on the smores, there aren't many marshmallows left!"
Eugene had been snacking all the way from the farm.

“Right over here!” Becky calls out, “I see Cousin Howard coming through the trees with the pizza!”
—Velma, taking charge: “First pizza, while it’s nice & hot.”
—Becky: “We can watch the Great Grey Owl while we eat.”
—Velma: “Then Klancy Dog & the guys can search the cave for the hidden treasure.”
—Becky: “Velma & I will guard the left-overs & start a nice fire while you guys are in the cave.”
—Velma: “Afterwards, we snack on smores & left-overs.”

"Quiet, I hear something. Shhhh. Why... that's the call of a Great Grey Owl!", says Yancy. (He's full of suprises.)

"Hooo... hooo... hoo-hoo"

"Look, over there, there he is!", shouts Chuck. The huge bird swoops down and grabs a cottontail right off the forest floor.

"Wow, that's very cool. He's about the size of Klancy!", says Eugene.

"Yes, up to a five foot wingspan!", replies Yancy.

“Only you would want it today?” grumps Velma
—Yancy: “We can have it today!”
—Eugene: “How?!”
—Yancy: “We cover a pizza pan with graham crackers. Cover them with Hershey chocolate bars. Then we toast as many marshmallows as it takes. When they are ready, we quickly put them on the chocolate bars & slap more graham crackers on top.”
—Velma: “You can’t toast that many marshmallows at one time!”
—Yancy: “Sure we can, if we each hold half a dozen sticks & each stick has 2 marshmallows…that would be 5 dozen marshmallows, which should be enough!”

Kicking along the trail towards the cave, Eugene looked more closely at the bag of marshmallows.

He had another thought about smores. "How about a really big one?" said Eugene out loud.

"How many marshmallows, and how many graham crackers?" asked Becky, thinking what was left at the farm.

They had all been snacking watching the X-series videos and she didn't know how much of anything was left.

"Finally, we can watch some good old movies!" says Yancy.

He knew all the spaghetti westerns that Clint Eastwood was in.
"I liked the X-files!" said Chuck.

"Then there was Dirty Harry and Magnum Force and what was the third one?" asks Yancy.

Eugene, petting Xitty, smugly quips: “Clint Eastwood was a director, not an actor. Don’t you guys know anything?”
—Velma, with a sigh: “Eugene! Clint Eastwood was an actor who later became a director. When we get back to the house, we can watch some old Clint Eastwood movies.”

Driving along quietly, on his B-train, was Chuck. The sun was just coming up and he was tired since being up at 4 AM.

Xitty was now sitting on Chuck's lap figuring those pizza boxes had to be opened sometime. She might as well be in line for pizza too.

Becky sings: “Head ‘em up. Move ‘em out. Rawhide!”
—Velma: “One of my favorite shows!”
—Eugene, confused (again): “Shows?? What y’all talkin’ about?”
—Yancy: “A western TV show, that was before your time. Our favorite character was Rowdy Yates, played by a young Clint Eastwood.”

-Pizza was loaded on the B-train.
-peanuts and drinks were loaded.
-Chuck was in the driver's seat of the ATV.
-Klancy and Eugene were in the lead.
-Xitty was glaring at the loaded and now secured pizza.

"Let's move 'em out!" says Yancy.

—Yancy grabs Xitty … She bites his hand
—He drops her & she attacks the pizza again
—Becky, calmly spraying Xitty with a can of air (used to clean keyboards): “She just hates having air blown at her face. So I keep a can handy for emergencies.”

Xitty suddenly appeared from out of the early morning darkness, jumped up on top of the pizza boxes and started clawing one of them open! "Hey you, get off of there!", shouted Eugene. Xitty just snarled at him.

“Unless you have the tubs of peanuts, you’ll have to come up with another idea to keep the squirrels out of the pizza!” Becky protests
—Chuck: “But Becky…Cousin Howard can bring the peanuts with the pizza.”
—Becky, hands on her hips: “Call him & find out!”
—Chuck: “Hi, Howard! We want to place an order for tomorrow morning…I know you don’t open until 11:00, but we’re going on a morning stroll to watch Eugene & Klancy Dog find treasure in a cave & we need to take a snack. Klancy wants pizza…Howard!!!! Stop laughing!!! We also need a few tubs of peanuts…Yes, I said peanuts! …Well, it’s so the squirrels don’t eat the pizza. HOWARD! STOP LAUGHING!!! I’ll call you back later with the order!”

—“Squirrels eat Pizza???” Chuck echoes, confused by Becky’s question
—“Squirrels eat Pizza???” Eugene echoes Chuck…confused, delighted & horrified by the idea. “How will we protect our pizza from the squirrels?”

Pretty much randomly towards the barn.

"Eugene came around from the front and asked, "What's all that noise?" "Somebody not wanted around here?"

It was still dark out and Chuck couldn't see much.
