With the heat of the summer upon them, the guys were grateful to have found out where those pesky women had hid all their hooch, stogies, and mags. They were all settled out on the back deck of shed 7 enjoying a fine cookout......YB stretched out in a hamock, snoozing...Stuie and Harold were kicked back in a fine Jacuzzi, stogie in one hand/wing, and bottle in the other....Blacksheep was busy doing the grilling. "Hey there Sheepster" Stuie called out "Do you think if you were to get that grill smokin a bit better it'd get rid of these pesky skeeters AND also be able to keep those wascally women away?" "Ha! Those women wouldn't DARE come over HERE!" Blacksheep replied. BUT, those guys had another think coming.....The girls were all hiding in the bushes waiting to make their move. Mouse snuck up behind that hamock..which of course just HAPPENED to be sitting next to the pool...and flipped the sleeping YB over...SPLASH! "Whoo hoo!" Mouse yelled "Na na na na na na!" Then Mary Scott feeling a bit devilish herself grabbed up a big gallon jug of Stuie's hooch, and poored it over the bbq grill! "What in tarnation do you think you're doing you crazy woman?!!!" Blacksheep yelled. "I thought you guys said you wanted smoke!" Mary Scott said with a huge laugh. "THAT'S IT! You women have HAD it!" Stuie yelled. And then, all H.E. double hockey sticks broke out! YB, not to be outdone by Mouse.............

Mary Scott was very skeptical of this all of a sudden nice attack from YB and Stuie. It looks like YB & Stuie - it sounds like YB & Stuie - but aliens must have taken over their bodies ?? "Let's proceed with the cookout, but keep your guard up," Mary whispered to Mouse and the girls.

"Yeah, have a seat ladies," said Blacksheep as he picked up meat off the ground that was blowed off the pit by a sudden explosion caused by flammable hooch being poured over hot coals. "Hope ya like hot dogs, 'cause the steaks are for us hard workin men folk."

YB was being quite the gentleman! "My my!" Mouse said unsure of how things were turning out. "Here guys, here' some great baked beans and tater salad!" Mary Scott, still not trusting them, but, going along hoping for a nice turn around in the guys said "I've made up some great some-more's for later too!"

"Aw come on ladies, I'm just messin wit ya, there's plenty of woolly bully steaks to go around," said blacksheep. "Besides, it's time you two were treated like queens anyway." Blacksheep went inside then returned with two really big glasses of margaritas, complete with a lime twist and little umbrellas. "Here ya go sweeties, drink up." YB placed soft fuzzy wuzzy pillows under Mouse and Mary Scott's bare feet, while Harold fanned them with a palm tree thatch. "Now, let it never be said that ol' Blacksheep doesn't know how to treat a lady. Here, have a cigar, it's a Hemingway."

The guys came busting in. "Hey, the steaks, brats, and dogs are all cooked, youse girls got all the fixin's done fer us yet?" YB asked.
Blacksheep shoved his way in trying to carry two platters of meat at the same time.."Hey, somebody give me a hand here!"
Harold and Stuie dove in to help carry everything and get it all set out.
"What a FEAST!" Mary Scott shouted out. "Dig in while the diggin's good!"
While everyone was busy eating, thinking of course everyone was going to be sweet and innocent, Mouse ran out to the kitchen to get the desserts..."Mary, could you please give me a hand?"
The girls were all bringing out deserts...apple and cherry pies, cheesecakes, fruit, strawberry shortcake....
"Wow, what a feast we all are having!" Stuie cried out inbetween licking his fingers of the bbq sauce.
Just as everyone had settled down, Mouse started to spray the whipped cream on the shortcake and cheesecake...now we ALL know how she just CAN'T be perfectly well behaved constantly! Yep, she just HAD to aim the can at YB!
"Oops! My mistake, shame on me!" Mouse said with an evil grin.

"Bbbb bbbb but, YB......."
"I DON'T want to hear it Mouser, you just hush and clean up this mess!" Stuie scolded.
YB was furious with Mouse for the cowpies, but, the girls were all chuckling.
"C'mon Mouse" said Mary Scott "Let's help YB get cleaned up."
"Leave me ALONE you wacky women, haven't you already ruined things enough?" YB snarled.
"Aw, c'mon YB, we were just havin' some fun, just like YOU were!" Mouse tried to smooth things over.
But, just then Blacksheep came over and....

"You guys get stuff figured out, while us girls make you some good eats and brownies too!" added Mary Scott. "Maybe you can get Stuie out of shed 7 to help us too!"

"We need the help of someone more like US!" Mary Scott added.
"So why not get someone like Maxine, she's about as mouthy as you girls, and us guys will get Tim Taylor and Larry the Cable Guy!" YB chimed in.
"Na, if us gals need any help, I say it should be from Kevin Costner and Richard Gere! Their presence alone would make this place awesome!" Mouse started jumping up and down with excitement.
"Like THEY'D have anything to do with the likes of you!" Stuie laughed.

Blacksheep and YB started unloading the goodies. "Don't forgt that carton of Brasso so the girls can start on the Mighty Alco G-5!"said Stuie.

Harold sidled up to Stuie. "Y'know, maybe we had better take it easy on the girls, they are working hard on the kitchen and those IOUs we pay them with aren't going to mean much in the local banks. Besides, I think they're getting fed up with those baloney, peanut butter and pickle sandwiches with saurkraut sides that you've been feeding 'em".

Stuie stood there, looking at his boots. After a pensive moment he replied, "OK. Thaw out a bunch of those Omaha Steaks and break out the charcoal, time to treat the girls!"

Ï dunno," replied Blacksheep, "Maybe we can spare a few Arturo Fuente Opus X's, might mellow Mary, Queen of Socks down a bit, especially as payday is coming up again!"

"Good idea," replied Harold, "Besides, we'll have yet another truckload of bees' wings arriving tommorow and need to start production soon. Gotta get some orders filled if the Labs are gonna make some money!"

Stuie sprinkled some Instant Scotch crystals over the charcoal to get a good fire going for the steaks. "Bloody Nora, Harold, what will we do with all those pickles, peanut better and saurkraut that we have stored in the kitchen?".....

"That dang Mouse is SO bossy!" YB muttered.
"Yeah, who does she think she is anyway?!" Stuie chimed in.
Blacksheep just laughed at it all...could it be he found some of the special ingredients Mouse uses in her desserts and put it in that Peterson pipe?
Mary Scott backed Mouse up by letting those guys know that Nurse Gladys Ratchet was back from vacation and in the kitchen...more than ready to make sure the guys really did behave.
But, all of a sudden, the main grill exploded and...........
