Scot-Michael: Which one are you reading?
Nicholas Sahara: A gentleman called 'The Aquaman.' I believe he's Daddy John's favourite.
BR: Hi guys. We're taking the dogs out, then going for a walk.
Pete Dakota: Would you like to go with?
Nicholas: Oh, a perambulation would be lovely! Do let's!
Scot-Michael: We'll just grab our jackets and meet you outside.
Nicholas: We shan't be a tick!
Pete: Ready for a walk, girl?
Scot-Michael: I'm ready! Wait, what's wrong?
Nicholas: Oh dear, it's my footwear...
Nicholas: These sandals are lovely, but not suitable for strolling about.
I must find a proper pair of trainers.
Scot-Michael: Well, hurry up. We don't want to keep them waiting.
Nicholas: I shan't be a tick!
BR: Where are those guys?
Stephen Orange: Where are you guys going?
Nicholas: We're going on walkabout with BR and Peter. Do join us.
Stephen: Okay, just need to grab a sweater.
Scot-Michael: Be quick about it!
Stephen: All right, I'm ready to go.
Nicholas: Oh dear...
Scot-Michael: Now what?
Nicholas: I'm missing my scarf. I'll just go back and find it.
Scot-Michael: >Sigh< Nicholas...
Nicholas: No, no, shan't be a tick!
Stephen: Er, does he not...
Scot-Michael: No, he does not. Give him a second; he'll work it out.
At least, it better only take a second...
Nicholas: Drat it all, I couldn't find it! .....Oh.
Well...aren't I the daft old sausage?
Stephen: Where are they?
Scot-Michael: I found a note. "We got tired of waiting and left on our walk.
We'll see you later. Signed, BR & Pete."
Stephen: We'll just go on our own walk, then.

Some scenes how we celebrated St. Patrick's Day here at Gregoropolis...
Tyler: Hey Patrick, it's your day!
Patrick: Er, yes, quite.
Mikko: Did you know that St. Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland?
Tyler: Yeah, how cool is that?
Patrick: Actually, Ireland, like many other islands, never had snakes. When it was still connected to a larger landmass, the ice age made it too chilly for cold-blooded reptiles. As the ice melted around 10,000 years ago, the increased water level created the now impassable expanse
between Ireland and its neighbors.
Mikko: Ugh, he turns everything into a science lesson!
Ravi: I know, isn't it great?!
Dan Ryan: In Chicago, where I come from, they dye the river green on St. Patrick's Day!
Uli: Ach, that sounds too messy.
Daphne: Corned beef & cabbage is a traditional St. Patrick's Day dinner.
Frank: Yeahhhhh, I'm more of a 'candy holiday' person.
Wendel: Cabbage gives me gas.

Ann Marie: Daylight Savings Time starts tonight, so we have to remember
to move the clock ahead before we go to bed.
Luke: Yeah! That means I get an extra hour of sleep!
Ann Marie: No, Luke, you lose an hour. "Spring ahead, fall back."
Luke: But if I go ahead, I get more. Right?
Ann Marie: No, you get less. If you move the clock ahead an hour, then that hour is gone.
Luke: I don't know if I like this idea. Well, when do I get the hour back?
Ann Marie: In the fall, when we go back on standard time.
You know: "Spring ahead, fall back." >Sigh<
Luke: Actually, I would like to get it back in June; like maybe June 15th?
That way it will be nice and warm and we can play outside in the sun.

Daddy John: BR is the handyman of Gregoropolis (usually putting back together what Mikko and Tyler take apart), and is planning a big project for the spring...
BR: Now, let's see. The width and length of a dog house should be about 25% larger than the dog's nose-to-flank length...Argh, this isn't working.
Stephen Orange: Hello BR. Um, what are you doing?
BR: I'm trying to draw plans of a dog house for Annabelle.
Stephen: That's a Lite Brite.
BR: Mighty observant of you, Aunt Gertrude.
Stephen: Don't be tart. At this rate, you'd be better off with an Etch-A-Sketch.
BR: I couldn't find any graph paper and someone is using the laptop! My options were limited!
Stephen: I've got some graph paper in my lab. I'll be right back.
Stephen: Here you go. Much better.
BR: Thanks. Sorry about before.
Stephen: It's all right; I understand. Science is fraught with tension.
BR: Okay, so cut the 2x4 boards into four pieces, with two at 22½ inches long and two at 23 inches long for a medium sized dog...wait, is Annabelle medium? Large? ARGHHHHH!!!!
Nicholas Sahara: Hullo Benjamin! Stephen mentioned you were looking for the laptop. I'm afraid I was pigging it.
Nicholas: Dear Scout was showing me a smashing website where
a woman named Betsy sells all sorts of arts and crafts.
Nicholas: Er, yes, well. Here's the computer, old boy.
BR: Thanks, guys.
