"Holy cow! That is a lot to remember!" says the waitress.
"I have to get my pencil and write all this down. I haven't had an order this big in a long time!"

"Hey," asks Chuck, "weren't you in the lineup to see the strange cat and kittens we had a few weeks back?"

“Fried onion rings & spaghetti red.” Chuck orders
—Yancy: “A large bowl of chili & a jumbo cinnamon roll.”
—Eugene: “A chili dog, a Frito chili pie & a piece of carrot cake for me.”
—“You got it!” the waitress responds, “But what do you want to drink.”

Eugene says, "I think I will stick with the basics."
"Ice cream, then a quick walk to the donut shop is a basic" says Chuck.

"I'm in for that!" says Eugene.

“Come on fellas,” Yancy growls, “let’s go catch some fish.”
—“But I’m hungry now!” Eugene grumbles & shuffles his feet
—Once out of sight of the ladies, Chuck says with a grin: “How about going to Fred & Red’s for some spaghetti red?”
—Eugene, smiling: “Yippee!! I’m in!!”
—Yancy, smiling too: “And afterwards we can stop by Anderson’s Ice Cream Shop for some of their homemade ice cream!”

"Boys, boys, boys!" says Becky. "The chili is gone. You weren't here for it!"
"Probably sleeping," adds Velma.

"Time for you three to do some work and catch dinner, unless you already have!" says Velma.

“All right, Velma, I smell chili!” Yancy exclaims, “Where’s the chili?”
—“Klancy Dog ate the last of it.” Velma answers, as Yancy’s hopeful smile quickly fades
—“Did you catch any fish?” Becky adds, “We could have a fish fry tonight.”
—“But I’m hungry now!” Chuck whines, “Hungry for chili!”

"Zoinks, what's that racket?!?", yells Eugene. Klancy continues with his concert. Velma chimes in, "Aw, ain't that cute." Which of course encourages Klancy to 'play' even louder, with a faster beat. You can tell he's having a good time. "Silly old dog", comments Becky.

Yancy shows up too, looking for whatever all them were smelling.
Klancy continued to wag his tail and play the xylophone.

He wasn't about to spill the beans.

"Where's that chili I smelled?" asks Yancy casually.

Xylophone 'music'! "Ching, ching, chang, ching, ching, clang"... "What's that racket?", asks Chuck. Klancy is sitting there smiling while his rapidly wagging tail bangs the keys of the old toy xylophone that's sitting in the hallway with all the other stuff waiting to go to the thrift store. "You play very well Klancy", says Chuck ,laughing as he pats the dog on the head.

“Well, I’d like to Becky, but I’m just too stuffed.” Velma moans
—Becky: “Here comes Klancy Dog, if we give the rest of the chili to him; he’ll be a happy dog & we can wash the pot to hide the evidence from the guys.”
—Velma: “Sounds good to me. … Here Klancy, good dog!”
—Klancy, with a doggy grin& a wagging tail: “Slurp! Slurp! Slurp!” Thump, thump, thump!!
—Velma, startled: “Oops! Here comes Eugene! Becky, hide everything, quick, or he’ll spill the beans!”

"Rotten luck, eh Eugene?", Chuck and Yancy tease. "I wonder what got old Klancy so fired up? The only time he moves that fast is when there is something good cooking!", comments Yancy.

Quickly, Becky sets it all on the table & the ladies dig in
—Back at the fishing hole: a huge fish takes Eugene’s bait
—Eugene is precariously napping on top of a large rock
—Suddenly, the struggling fish pulls just enough to tip Eugene off the rock, into the water
—“Aaaaaa!!!” Eugene’s screams, flailing in the water, flinging water in all directions
—“Aaaaa!!” being doused with water, Chuck, Yancy & Klancy dog wake up
— Klancy sniffs the air & trots back toward the house
—Chuck: “Now he has the right idea. Let’s head back to the house for dry clothes.”

“Old Buffalo Breath Chili is in the refrigerator. How about a big bowl of chili for lunch?” Becky asks
—Velma: “With cornbread or crackers?”
—Becky, thinking of the rest of the meal: “Chili, crackers, giant cornmeal muffins, orange pecan salad & old-fashioned lemonade; with peach pie a la mode for dessert.”
—Velma: “Ooooo!! Sounds good to me!!”

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

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

Not much fishing was accomplished after that.

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.”

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.

“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.

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.

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.
