The two buildings to the right here belong to Ty Bubbler and Sam Thomas. They have been together since they first met and fell in love at university. While Sam made her lifetime want of becoming general true a "week" before reaching elderhood, Ty is still working on his LTW of having 5 top-level businesses.
So far, the businesses have always been run from the home lot: the larger building is where Sam and Ty live, while the smaller house has first been a shop for wedding cakes and champagne ("Bubbler's Bubbly"), then a place where they sold bubble blowers ("Bubbler's Bubbels"), then a flower shop ("Bubbler's Blossoms") and right now, it is "Bubbler's Bakery".Here they are: Sam and Ty. As much in love as always, Ty knows very well that he would not be where he is today - with 4 top-level businesses under his belt - without Sam's help. The moment she reached her LTW, she retired from the military and put all her time and energy into helping Ty's businesses. He often rewards her with a tender backrub when her shoulders are tense from all the mixing up batter for more cakes to sell at the bakery.
Ty and Sam are both 74 at the beginning of this week.
Baking enough cakes to keep the bakery running is a huge challenge, and more often than not, the bakery is sold out moments after a full batch has been put up for sale. Therefore, on this Monday, I try a different approach:
I have Sam order Chinese food and pizza at the same time, hoping to sell this at the bakery for a change.
It does not work, however; delivered food can not be placed on the "for sale" displays (or at least I wasn't able to figure it out).
So I decide it is Crêpes Suzette Day today.
The moment they get off the taxi, someone wearing a hooded cloak and carrying a scythe approaches Ty.
Although Ty was not on Permanent Platinum, his having made so many of his daily wishes come true means he still gets the PP "treatment" with cocktail and hula girls, and a marble headstone, which is of course transferred to the cemetery at Gamesend Grounds.
Sam is now 81 and will probably not last long into the next week. But it will take some time before the letter "T" as in "Thomas" comes up this round, and who knows what will happen in between!
