Oh, hello sir. How was your breakfast today? Did you enjoy the view from you roo...
Oh, hello madam. How was your breakfast today? Did you enjoy the view from you roo...
Wait a minute. You are not one of my guests. Oh...of course! You are %farmname Farm's new owner!^A pleasure to meet you. I am Joshua Thorne, owner of The Green Pine Lodge.^I see the farm is in good hands now. No, don't give me that look! I know an enterprising spirit when I see one!
I may be a businessman, but I always put the best interests of the community first. Gleaner Heights thrives, the Lodge thrives. It's a symbiotic relationship!
%playername...sometimes I envy you. You work hard, yet you lead a simple life. If only things were as simple for me.^All this decision making, all those hard calls...Yesterday I was three hours on the phone talking to my decorator about the hotel's exterior flags...^What? That's not considered a hard call??^Hmmm...never thought about it this way.
Try to befriend the townsfolk, and they will help you in their own ways. One must be diplomatic in order to achieve greatness!
Ah, %playername! Now that it's Winter, make sure to come to the hotel's showroom!^The theater man performs there on the 5th, 15th and 25th, from 7 pm to 10 pm!
Oh, greetings to you. I hear things are going well over at %farmname Farm.
James tries to learn things about hotel management. He's an honest person. Emily, on the other hand...^Well, they say that with age comes maturity. Emily should need a century or so.
Sometimes in our lives we have to choose between the lesser of two evils. There is also a sin/reward ratio, but that is material for advanced life lessons!
There is no successful business without taking risks. People without a hard stomach are bound to fail!
So it was you who took them. Most unexpected. Now, this is a quite unpleasant situation. In your eyes, I may seem a heartless blackmailer.^But listen! Otto did what he did. Instead of leaking this to the public, wouldn't it be more prudent to...narrow his focus towards building a better town?^Look at all the hard work that's been done! The improvements! If I didn't have leverage over him, Otto would never bother coordinating all those town projects!^Sure, I also gain from this. But how could it be differently, to have masterminded such a plan for the benefit of our town and not be compensated in some way?^%playername...if you return these photos to me, I will pay you handsomely. It will be as if nothing ever happened. But showing them around may have dire repercussions!
What will you do?
I knew you would see reason! I am a man of my word. Here is your very own...compensation. And this little incident? Never happened.
You don't know what you're doing! Otto was devastated when Tinsel was found dead. I gave him purpose! I gave him focus! And now you come to ruin it all!^I pray for your better judgement on this issue. I will keep acting normally, as if nothing happened. But you should be very careful on what your next move will be.
Denny. A boy just a bit younger than my James. A murderer. Unbelievable.
What a majestic little gem! Sadly, I am not a geologist.
I understand that Ms. Matilda abandoned Lee. What a cruel thing to do to a man!
I understand that Lee moved into the city...permanently. How strange. I am absolutely positive he would contact me prior to such a decision.
A most tragic incident. I am very concerned of my safety. Hell, everybody is!
My goodness, what quickness! I barely managed to touch the door knocker!^Happy birthday! I had to postpone three meetings, one inspection, and a very important fight with my son to come here and give you this!
Keep up the good work, and come visit me anytime for advice!
To the south of Lee and Matilda's house, amidst the trees, is a rather peculiar tree. See, it's dead. But it just stands there, never growing leaves.^There are rumors that some treasure was buried near its root, but no one dared dig.^You see, the tree is cursed. How else is it dead among so many living ones?^...How you can dig? Well, you can use your hoe! Jeez!
When Sarah was alive, she used to cook us spinach with rice. It was delicious. My poor Sarah... At least, I can pass on the recipe to you.
Do you like sangria wine? Here's a method to make it. It tastes great, you know!
