For the third day’s visit,the children were happy to go wherever the adults wanted them to see and visit.The task was quite simple.The adults were interested to take a tour of,”The Sydney Opera House.” Although Charlie and his parents lived in Sydney,Charlie didn’t see the opera house.It was a gorgeous day for sight-seeing.Gepetto and Bobby were having the time of their life.All the two cared about was,no school,therefore no homework,plenty of junk food to eat and moving from place to place.This was the kind of life they always dreamed about,but they are tasting it now.They are wishing,”Time would stand still for them”.We all know that it cannot be so,all good times must come to an end.Suddenly Bobby dozed off and dreamed his teacher was yelling at him,saying,”,Bobby did you hit Angela,why is she crying,answer me now or you will be sent to the principal’s office?” In his dream,Bobby cried out loud,”No I did not do anything to her,she always gets me into trouble,I hate her.”Bobby,Bobby wake up you just had a night mare,you are not in school.We have reached the Opera house.”

They all got off and made their way into the concert hall,Alphie read about all the important buildings and volunteered to be their guide.He began with,”this is the concert hall,there are 2679 seats.They still have to book their seats when there is a concert.Gepetto was so impressed,he could not say anything.At last he broke his silence,”Mom,Dad can we stay here a bit longer,It is awesome,did you bring a camera Dad,can you take a picture,I want to show everything I have seen to my friends in school?Susan,Gepettos, Mom was relieved to hear her son talking,even if it sounded gibberish.The last place they visited was the utzon room.it was named after the architect Jon utzon from Denmark.

In the end Gepetto wanted to show off.This is what he said,”Chuck a sicky mate.”(take the day off sick from work when you are perfectly healthy.)

Bobby said ,”Ace!(excellent)Charlie hollered okay everyone,let’s be on our way,”Mate.”

In part one it was all about Alphie,the cook.Part two the focus shifted to Alphie’s extended family,his wife and his son. .Alphie was still in-charge.He trained his son to cook and and challenge everyone about his wit.The former was all right for Gepetto.He had some negative feeling about being witty.Which led to their defeat.

Having faced defeat quite soundly.Alphie decided to lay low for a while and gave himself time to think.It did not look as though he had given up on being witty.He now is thinking of re-entering the world of wit.His idea was to get Gepetto involved.On hearing what his Dad had up his sleeve.He was certain he will have a war of words with his Dad.

The task Alphie had before him was not going to be a piece of cake.He needed to get his brain to co-operate with him.It was getting more apparent to the wife,The phrase,” once a crook always a crook.” she knew,it won’t be easy for her to bring Alphie back to reality.Reality according to Alphie was doing what he knew best,showing how cunning he was,which is an extraordinary way of becoming famous.It does not require much intelligence,this way no one gets hurt and he retains his name as the most witty person on this side of the globe.Alphie started thinking about his good pal Charlie,checked his mail and amazingly enough,there was mail waiting for him, from his buddy Charlie.This made him quite energetic.They started corresponding with each other via email.Isn’t this awesome he told himself.He no longer has to wait for mail through the post office which is a lousy service.Sometimes the mail takes a week to be delivered within the city. “I applaud the person who made our life so much easier.Charlie and I have already made plans.He wants me to visit Australia,how neat is that “!

Alphie told his family,they will be taking a trip to Australia next week.They were invited by his friend Charlie to visit him and his family.

The family got ready for the trip and on the day of their travel.Gepetto’s excitement reached its limit.He was like a bird, caged so long that, the very idea of freedom was making him completely insane.” I understand why you are,so excited, but Gepetto,you are being watched by the rest of the passengers,who knows, what they are thinking.” Gepetto, yelled out,”they will think my parents did not teach me,how to behave in public, right Dad?” Gepetto’s parents breathed a sigh of relief,when they landed safely in Sydney!Charlie was at the airport waiting,the friends hugged each other after the introduction,they all whisked their way to Charlie’s home. This time Charlie introduced his family,his wife Mary and son Bobby.Mary had already set the table.The food was delicious and Gepetto ate as if he was not fed for days.It was now time for bed.So they all went to their respective rooms.Alfie and his family were sound asleep,when the breakfast bell was rung few times,Alphie woke up and called his wife and Gepetto to get ready at once.After breakfast they sat around to discuss their plans of how they will spend the week.
