Caliente-Dina Round 9- House 3

Here we are back at the first Caliente home. Dina of course is no longer with us and her husband, former Mr Big Magnus is getting on in years too. He just received inheritance from Brandi Broke. In the background you see his daughter-in-law Monica (formerly Bratford).

Magnus and his sons Vito and Mario had a wish to visit a community lot for clothes and jewellery as well as the outing itself.

Vito, who is Monica's husband wished to hustle pool. He beat his ol' dad who had also wanted to win!

Once back home Vito enjoyed singing a nursery rhyme with his daughter Maria.

Magnus wished for a date- he took his long time friend Jordan out and they quickly fell in love as per Marcus' wishes.

His wishes saw him propose engagement but no further wishes appear to cement the relationship.

Nature loving Monica wished to catch a Golden Trout.  She struck lucky after some time at the pond.

She got another good wish fulfilled later that night, ;)

Magnus likes to stargaze with the telescope while downstairs Mario enjoys stargazing on the ground.

Meanwhile Arianna's ghost came out. You remember she was Mario's twin and died as a teen during a house fire.

Thankfully Mario did at least wish to see a ghost.

Unlike his sister-in-law who got quite a shock when she went to use the toilet!

Magnus invited Angela Pleasant over, they soon made friends.

her daughter Amaya was getting on well with Mario.

Magnus later wished to invite over and play with Jordan.

He got a little jealous I think when he found Mario and Jordan having a pillow fight.

Mario too was jealous as like his father he has a 3 bolt attraction to Jordan.

Magnus waited until Mario was at work until he fulfilled his wish to woohoo with Jordan.

When Mario got home he bought a friend with him who also witnessed little Maria growing up.
She cheered at her little makeover and headed straight to a ballet barre followed by some skipping. Looks like she inherited her Dad and Uncle's love of fitness.
As Maria grew up Monica spun into Maternity wear. Yes risky is working overtime again. Monica served up the delicious Golden Trout she'd caught earlier.
Vito wished to train the cats. Darcy and Liza are producing kittens who are being sent to the shelter for next time someone wishes to 'raise 20'. :)
Mario enjoyed a make out session with his work buddy.
He also got invited on a date with Jordan!
and a second date which ended very well indeed!
Just when you think the household can't expand anymore and Liza has another couple of kittens.
Maria brought Charlie Hanby home from school and they enjoyed a game of Mary Mack.
Everyone was home to witness the birth of Magnus' first Grandson, Eduardo.
Like his sister Maria he too inherited Grandma Dina's blonde hair.
Magnus always wanted to meet someone new and was often seen running to greet walkby neighbours.
This was a bit of a strange one considering that Mortimer Goth died in round 1. :D
Magnus threw a party and had as many friends over as he could invite.
It was a double celebration as Eduardo celebrated becoming a toddler.
Vito spent much of the time teaching his son new skills.
Before Eduardo settled down to some serious playing at the activity table with his sister.
On Sunday night Magnus got his final cocktail and suitcase and headed off with the hula girls to the great party in the sky.
Farewell Magnus. He left a nice inheritance. He was 83.


Magnus- Always enjoyed playing him, he loved parties, meeting new people, dancing, stargazing and hustling pool. His interest in Jordan was such that I considered marrying them should he spin the wish but he did not.

Vito- Vito wished to hustle pool, learn couples counselling, earn cash, train the kitties and teach his son skills.

Monica- most wishes revolved around nature with fishing leading the way. She wished to woohoo, be top of career (Dance), which she completed also this week. She also reached the top of her Lifetime Aspiration metre.

Mario- first wish was to make a best friend, his wishes were torn between pleasure and knowledge. tell jokes, make friends, see ghosts. He enjoyed several dates but none more than the dates with Jordan. It will be interesting next round to see if anything progresses there.

Maria- Toddler for a time then as a child wished to skip, dance and play at the ballet barre as well as earning a skill or two.

Eduardo- still a toddler with usual wishes.

Darcy and Liza had 3 kittens this week, Charlotte, Forster and Kitty who were all adopted by the agency.


  1. Thank you for providing me with my morning coffee read :-)
    I had to smile at nature-loving Monica, going fishing in such a regal-looking outfit. Interesting developments with Jordan - both father and son with a 3-bolt-attraction for the same lady! There's a little decoration idea I am going to nick from you: In the first picture with Arianna's ghost, you show part of the living room. There is a rug on top of some carpet tiles. It looks good and that idea can be of course used in many diffrent ways with the smaller rugs in the game.

  2. Thanks for stopping by and Merry Christmas! The rug idea is good for you as you love your population control. When you put a rug in front of a fire it almost always sets on fire, :D I like to mess around with the carpet tiles too when I put my mind to it. I wish I had more time to play but life is crazy lately.
    Hoping 2014 will give me more time to play and blog. :)

  3. Woo how did I miss this entry?? Yes, you know you have played a hood for a while, when every time you open a lot the tombstone with a golden $ appears. :D I noticed that rug on top of carpet tiles too. NICE. I have never done that, but it will probably show up in my blog soon! I was sure that with two ppl stargazing at the same time, there would be an abduction! I agree, not much time to play lately, here is to 2014.
