Hi Mum, It's Sammy (Clone 69 - Part 1)

Well, Mum, I've moved into a new home in a place called Lucky Palms.

Congrats on the move. I'm sure you’ll be happy in your new home.

So far, it doesn't seem that lucky to me. This tiny shack was all I could afford and it barely has any furniture.

Oh Sam, maybe that's not what's lucky about Lucky Palms. You do have to give a new place a chance.

Well, I do live next to a public garden. So I had the chance to rummage around for food.

That seems pretty lucky.

Are you kidding? I don't have money to buy groceries! I can't afford a burger at a diner. I have to forage for a few vegetables to survive on. At least there was some things ripe enough to pick or I might have to go hungry for a few days.

After finding something I could eat from the garden. I went for a long walk around town. Guess what Mum, I found a casino here.

Sammy, weren't you complaining about money just a few minutes ago? This doesn't seem like such a good idea to me.

Mum, it has to be ok. Surely I'll win enough to buy a new home. Or at least some good furniture.

Look, money! Lovely lovely money.

I'll be damned, Sam. You did win.

Umm, I might have just pushed the machine a few times to convince it to give me some.

Ah, cheating. Sam Grant, I expect better of you.

But, I want out of that dump they sold me as a house. Mind you, this wasn't nearly enough money to do me much good. And I spent most of it trying to win more.

Still, Sam. Cheating is going to catch up with you.

SAM GRANT! What do you think you are doing?

Me? Nothing Mum. Just chilling by the wishing well.

Sammmm! You are up to something, I can tell.

Ok, I thought I'd get some coins from the wishing well. I still need money, the payout at the casino wasn't that great. Most of it went back into the machine.

You better watch it. Bad actions can backfire.

Mum, no one is going to miss a few coins. It's not a big deal.

Maybe while I'm at the wishing well, I'll make a wish or two. This place needs to live up to the "Lucky" name.

Well, good luck with that.

Money. I wish for tons and tons of money.


The wishing well fairies tell me that if I want to be rich I should stop throwing money in wells.

That was pretty sound advice. I told you that nothing good would come of stealing from the well.

I think I'll try again. Maybe I can be lucky in love.

Sam, are you sure this is a good idea?

My luck has to change sometime.

Oh yuck! It gave me a frog. It's cold and wet.

You do know that tradition says you have to kiss it? Kiss the frog to get a beautiful princess or handsome prince.

Kiss? A frog? That's just disgusting.

You wanted love. You have to deal with it.

Damn, I kissed a frog and all I got was frog germs for my trouble. I'm sure that I'll get lucky sometime. I'll wish for family, that can't go wrong.

Mum, something is definitely happening.

I don't like the look of that water.

It's exciting, something is definitely happening!

I'm glad that you're excited Sam. I just don't know.

I wait forever and ever in that well for a family and I get you? Why did I have to get such a loser?

Loser! You call me a loser, boy?

What else did you expect to be called? Dad? Don't think that's going to happen soon.

You are so going to be shipped to military school, boy.

No, he's not. You haven't the money to send him away. You have a son, love it or lump it.

My name is Berjes. You could at least get that right, loser.

Right, fine. If you want to be called Berjes, you should call me Dad or Sam.

Well, I guess we are stuck with each other, Sam. What's for dinner? You have no idea how hungry you get waiting in the well.

Salad. It's all I've got.


I heard that. Behave or the minute I can scrape together the cash, you are off to military school.


  1. Hiiii. Thought I would drop in and say this gave me a laugh. I have a feeling Sammy is going to have a wild ride raising the kid who thinks he is a loser.

    1. Dee, glad to see you.

      Sam is certainly in for an interesting time. :) Hopefully it will give his followers a laugh, even if it doesn't give him one.

    2. I have a feeling this one kid is going to be more work than all the others his clones have taken care of. He can handle it. Sammy's a tough one.

    3. Berjes is a bit of a surprise. But Sammy can handle almost anything. As you well know.

      Hope life is treating you well.

    4. Doing well right now. I hope it continues. Hope everything is going good for you too.

    5. I'm glad to hear that. Everything continues well in this corner of the world.

  2. Hilarious! Sammy, it's so good to see you again.

    1. And Sue came by too! Old school Sammy fans. Glad you thought it was funny.

      Poor Sam doesn't think so. :)

  3. hehe I always ship the bad seeds from the well off to military school too lol

    1. He would but not enough money. So he's stuck with Berjes.

      They are just so made for each other. :)

  4. Hooray! Sam's back!

    1. Indeed. The pics are recycled from Tumblr but it's not been a story till now.

  5. Sam with a kid. This is going to be fun!

    1. Fun isn't exactly what Sammy is thinking. :)

  6. Yay, a new Sammy! He does have a knack for kids, doesn't he? Or was that a different clone? ;)

  7. Most Sammys have a knack for kids. This one does seem to be at a disadvantage. :) Thanks for popping by.

  8. Aaahaahahaha!! A very grumpy Sam episode! XD I always love it when he's strapped for cash, 'cause then he gets desperate, and never disappoints with humor. ;) At least he got a little money at the casino, but I don't think that and a few cloves of garlic are going to hold him for very long!

    And of course, now he has another mouth to feed. XD Sam has gotten many children over the years, but that is definitely the most unusual way he's gotten one. Spawned from a fountain! Hehe. ^^

    Very cute start to a new clone, PiB! ♥

    1. Hey Kaleeko,
      Yes indeed - very grumpy Sam. His life isn't going well at the moment and his mood will reflect that. And you are right, he hasn't much money at all.
      Evil fountain spawn Berjes - definitely an unusual way to get a child. Feel for the boy - grumpy Sam is suddenly your entire family?
      Thanks Kaleeko.

  9. LOL, I like the mom narrative :P
