"Bob," says Mrs Flagg Sr. " We were so worried when you were gone. Felicia said you had amnesia. How could that happen?"
"Hi Granny," says Patsy. "This is my dog Bucky. Isn't he great?"
"I don't know how I got amnesia, Mother. I can't remember anything about it." says Bob
Ding Dong. The doorbell rings again.
It is Betty's parents, Dorothy and Dabney Drapeau.
"Mom, Dad, how lovely to see you both." says Betty as she welcomes them to her home. "We didn't know you were coming. You should have called."
"Grandma! Grandpa!" yells Patsy, jumping onto the couch to hug her Grandfather. "This is Bucky. he's my dog."
"My dear," says Mrs. Drapeau to Betty in a low voice. "Is everything okay? Did you figure out where Bob went?"
It is Bob's sister Felicia with her husband Philip Falon and their twins Freddie and Fern.
Patsy is excited to see her cousins. Betty and Bob invite everyone to sit down in the living room.
As everyone settles in for a nice visit an Betty mentally runs through the what food is in the house and what to prepare for all the unexpected dinner guests the door bell rings again.
It is Bob's cousin Debbie. Everyone loves Debbie and greets her enthusiastically.
I wonder what Patsy is plotting with her cousins. Those kids can cook up some great schemes.
"Don't worry," says Patsy. "I haven't actually done it, but it looks pretty easy. Just follow me."
Bob is standing by the fireplace with Philip, Felicia's husband. "So, Bob," Philip says quietly. "Where did you really go and what did you do."
"I honestly can't remember anything from the time I went missing until I saw Felicia on the street that day." says Bob just as the doorbell rings again.
This time they seem to be delivering a bride.
"Hello again ma'am", says the Mountie. "This young lady has reported a missing person and my policeman's intuition tells me that the missing person in question is the same missing person as your missing person.
"Just the facts ma'am. This lady is looking for a man who matches the description of your husband."
"Yesterday was our wedding day and I waited at the chapel for hours, but he never showed up. I filed a missing person report and the policeman brought me here."
"BOB!" yells Betty. "Could you come out here please?"
My dearest," the bride says to Bob. "How could you leave me at the alter like that!?
"Bob! You were going to marry another woman?! Explain yourself." says Betty
"I don't remember anything." says Bob
Both women start talking at once, but Bob gets the feeling he is being watched.
"Oh my," says Felicia.
"So, I was right." says Mrs. Drapeau.
"Now dear," says Mr. Drapeau
"Lucky dog," says Bill to Philip. "Two beautiful women fighting over him.
"What was that, Bill?" asks Bridget.
"Nothing dear." Bill mumbles.
"My Bob would ever do anything wrong," says Mrs. Flagg Sr. " All of you be quiet now."
Well, it seems that Bob has some explaining to do. Where was he while he was gone? What other things did he do? How did he get amnesia in the first place? Where did he meet the young bride?
Will we ever find out?
And with all the adults so interested in Bob and Betty's business has anyone thought to check on the children? I wonder what they are up to.
