First off *HUGS*! That was a lot of your older generation that went at once and I totally understand your comment about all of your sims never going together now. It's curl that Jefferson is left without Marsha for what appears to be a good amount of time.

Yay for Nick's letter to Alice's father! I'm glad those two have an understanding now and I still can't wait to see them get married (but I don't want it to get to that point because I know what is coming...) I'm glad James and Sterling are helping Alice save up for college. I'm sure she is a really good worker!

Rose is quite trying sometimes. I do hope she loosens up a bit once she gets to college (but I doubt she will).

*hugs Cindy* There is a storm coming and I hope all the kids make it... (even though I know they won't be).

*HUGS* Yeah, it's tough when the older generation starts to go, and my pairs never seem to go together (though Jason and Lizzie were close this time). It is cruel to have Marsha go so far ahead of Jefferson; he's does act very lost without her.

:D Nick's letter was a bit of genius on his part. It was nice to finally get the two of them to a point where they formalized their relationship a bit, but it does mean that bad things are coming. Alice is a hard worker, and James and Sterling certainly don't mind helping her out.

Rosalie is a PITA a lot of the time. Her need to follow the rules is going to be a defining factor in her personality, and will often put her at odds with her friends (and I don't think she'll get better; if anything she may get worse).

Cindy's right to be worried. One more chapter before the storm hits.

Thanks for the comment!

This was such a sad update in many ways but I'm glad Nick convinced Alice's father to let her stay!

It was a sad update to write. It is nice that Nick was able to get Alice to stay so that they can start planning for their futures.

Ahh such a sad update with so many of the older generation going. :(
So glad for Nick and Alice! I thought she would end up going due to how things were then, but her father could obviously tell she would have a far better life there.
Rose needs a chill pill. It is after all the 1930? or even 1940's? Not the turn of the century. Maybe a boyfriend will change her mind. ;)
I can't wait but I'm also nervous for what the next chapter will bring!
Wonderful chapter as always. :)

It was a sad update. I think Nick writing to Mr. Kalson was the best way to keep Alice there - he did realize that Alice would have a better life where she was than if he sent for her.

Rosalie is wound a bit tightly. They're in the late 1930s. I doubt a boyfriend will change her mind; she'll boss him around too.

One more chapter before things really start to get bad.

Thanks for commenting!

[Comment catch up time!]I see you finally found a hair to change Shirley into. Too bad - I liked her old one...though it was probably a bit young.

*shakes head* Oh, Rosalie. Darling, you have got to learn that not everyone thinks the way you do, or appreciates being told that they're wrong - and you don't seem to appreciate it either! You're not the authority here, missy, and you need to learn that. Admittedly, to some degree she's right that if someone wants a private conversation to actually remain private...well, they need to have it in private. But she's still not being polite. She needs to be shocked out of her state of mind, but I'm not sure of the way to accomplish that...but it would take something bit, that's for sure. Just telling her isn't going to work: it's going to have to be something with real consequences.

Gen 5 :( Goodbye, Lizzie. *hugs her* And Marsha too. :( :( :( And now Jefferson's all alone without either of them. :( *hugs him too* And Melanie too. :( Why is it all the women this chapter?

Is slide 38 supposed to be completely black? It has been both times I viewed it, and it works that way, but I'm not sure.

Aw, poor Alice, possibly having to leave. I'm glad Nick convinced her father to let her stay, and I'm glad they took the next step in their relationship. They're so sweet together.

And here comes the war. Sigh. It's not going to be pretty, and I know you've got to kill some sims, but...God, is it going to be hard to let them go! I'm guessing you're going to start the war soon, though obviously this gen won't be involved til Pearl Harbor...but the war itself had already been going on for two years at that point, anyway. It's coming soon. :/

Yay for more teens! They all look lovely.

Yay for hiring Alice! Now she can go to college with the rest of them. :D

Yeah, a grand tour = probably not the best idea in the world right now, Dotty, at least not in...hrm, no, the war was in most of the world. You could, uh, go to Buenos Aires and Toronto? *tries to think of other places that weren't involved* I can't say I blame her for wanting to travel, though - travel = very very fun. Her dreams ARE a little unrealistic, but, well, she's about 13. She's allowed to be impractical.

Is slide 116 meant to be all white or am I missing something?

And yeah, Cindy, you're right to be worried. Sigh.

Can't wait for more, even though I'm slightly dreading what comes next!

[Reply Time!]
I really, really liked her old hair too, but it was a bit young for her (she’s pushing 16 now). This one suits her since it kind of looks like Shirley might have hacked it off herself in a moment of frustration.

Rosalie is very, very much Jan’s great-granddaughter. I think I can say that and not need to say much more. You’re right about the private conversation in private comment, but she didn’t need to announce it to the world. She does need a good kicking, though I’m not sure who’s quite up to the task.

I don’t know what’s up with all the wives going first this time around. Poor Jefferson’s all alone, and he does act so lost. It’s really sad to watch him.

Yes, the slide is supposed to be all black. Grimmy made a fast appearance for some reason, so I wasn’t able to get the usual shot of him with the departing. I should have said something as a warning, I suppose.

It was a bit rough for Alice, thinking that she’ll have to leave. But yes, Nick was able to change her father’s mind, and now it’s just a matter of time before James loses that sucker bet.

Yeah. *sigh* All the happy has to come to an end sometime. I’ll be slowly bringing it into the forefront, as it was going on for a few years before the US got involved. Nick will be a sophomore in college when Germany (Simmany) invades Poland (SimPoland), and of course there’ll be some of the takeovers of other countries before that. The way I figure it, we have two more chapters before it gets really messy, but yes, it will be messy once it starts. :/

Lotsa good looking teens indeed!

I had to figure out a fesable way for Alice to get to college with the rest of them. And yes, Sterling really did hire her.

No, Dotty’s not thinking clearly, but she is young, and she wants what she wants. She’s just got the wanderlust her grandfather John had. There are plenty of places she could go, but her wants to travel will drive a lot of what happens to her later on (slight spoiler there).

Yup, another intentional blank slide.

Cindy’s very right to be worried.

Thanks! I’m dreading what’s coming next too. :/
