    Lester Crowley has been waiting all year long for all of us to fail so he can get the chance to take over someone's farm, he wakes up in the morning from his slumber with the knowledge that today just might be that day when he can put that evil grin on his face & hand over the paper's for us to sign our properties over to him.
    He already own's many of the properties around big farm, but just has to keep getting one more each time until finally he will own them all to himself.
    It started out when he was young , he would watch his parent's go around many of the farm's and tell the people that they would gladly help out with any & all thing's If the farmer's needed it, but then after they helped out the farmer's they would then make it look like the farmer's would owe them for helping, therefore either having the farmer's pay up or take over the property.
    The worst time would be during the fall season due to the farmer's getting ready for (Halloween ) , while the farmer's were busy with their crop's for that time of the season & making sure that there was enough for everyone, Lester's parent's would go around and see what they could get out of helping the farmer's with decoration's and food and much more, so as Lester got older you could say that his parent's are really to blame for all his evilness & dishonesty .
    Out of all the homes he does own though, there is the one that he just had to have & that is the Haunted Castle in which even the Ghost's are afraid of Lester, so much so that they only come out when they know he is sleeping in his horridly decade bedroom that seems to be falling apart  since he does not take care of his property, he let's the wallpaper fall off the walls and onto the floors, he lets the ceilings & floors crack, & parts of the castle is overrun with vines, He will not pay to have any of what he owns fixed as he is a penny pincher just like scrooge was but that is a different story altogether.
    What ever you do, do not go to his home for trick or treating, cause you just may not like what you get from Lester you have been warned.

                                                                                The End :)

    Lester walked around Tessa's farm, looking at all the Halloween decorations. The smell of freshly baked pumpkin pie was in the air, and it couldn't help but catch his nose. There in the bakery he spied the most delicious looking pie in all of big farm.. still steaming from the oven. He sneaked over to the bakery
     "I'm sure Matilda won't mind if I have a little bite" he reached for the pie, only to have his hand swatted away.
     "Now now Lester, this pie is for the workers, since they help us so much around the farm" said Tessa. "I did make some extra cookies if you would like some" she smiled and held out the plate if cookies. Colorfully decorated in blacks, oranges, and purples, they were shaped in the form of witches hats-
    Lester took one and grumbled away.
    Later that evening Lester went back to the bakery after Tessa left for the market, he looked around to make sure no one was looking, and took the pie. He ran from the bakery off the farm, he was so indulged in his pie that he didn't notice the stone ahead. He tripped over it, landing face first in the pie. A few feet away stood Tessa, who had watched Lester fall, she helped him up, unable to contain herself she burst out into laughter. Lester was covered in the pie! He licked his lips, and smirked, "I don't know why your laughing, I still got to eat the pie!" The both fell on the ground laughing hysterically. 
    At the end of the day Lester agreed to make a new pie with Tessa, this time giving it to the workers... And after all of them got a piece, he took one for himself. There he sat happily on a bench with his pie, as the sunset on another beautiful day on the farm.

    The End.
  • Once upon a time, Lester, as you know, Jealous of my farm, was walking through the road beside my farm. He was embarrassed as he was the one who mocked me when I started my farm. He was still saying some bad things about my farm and wasn't gonna accept his failure in front of me. So he asked me 'Why don't u put some Halloween decorations on your farm?' I said that I'm from India and we don't celebrate Halloween...But I know Halloween so I have decorated my Barn as spooky and my horizon has turned like Spooky so that was enough Halloween decorations. I asked him what all he has done for his farm. He said that his business is going down because of the growth of my farm :D and walked away...

    Lester comes in our farms, walks around our land and just like he suddenly appears (from nowhere it seems) just like that he lives and goes where?
    where does he live? some say he has a farm like we do and others... can't place him anywhere
    he just wonders around, no one knows when he will appear in front of you but it seems he has an interest in Halloween, you will always see him at this time of year
    so what do we know about Lester? who is he exactly?

    Let me tell you about him... 
    he wasnt always so grumpy, he used to be more fun although he always loved pranks, from when he was a kid and lived in a farm... he never cared for the animals, the work around the farm, only how to make jokes at the expense of others . In the farmer's village every farmer knew Lester but no one knew what his next prank would be. They couldn't stop him...and that continued even though he grew up

    Every year they had a Village Fair,
    that year... the Day in his life that everything started...they organized it on Halloween ,
    they decorated the village with pumpinks , pumpkin pies in every booth made from Matildas bakery and they had many visitors. There were carriages with magicians and fortune tellers and puppet show and music. Everything was wonderfull that day
    and what a happy day for Lester too.. a chance for more pranks, he just couldnt stop himself.
    He ate some of the pies, took some and placed them in different spots hidden around corners or chairs so people would step on them or sit on them, he took small pieces of the pies and threw them to the farmers, he even took one of the decorative pumpkins put it on his head and scared away a lot of kids.
    You could hear everywhere screams and see fear or angry faces when all you had before was laughter and music and happy faces. Lester had ruined the village fair for good.
    Εvery show stopped ... and everyone was looking at Lester sitting in the middle of the crowd with a pumpkin in his head. He had done it this time. All farmers seemed ready to grab him , he had to run...

    Αnd then, a woman came from one of the carriages. She looked Lester in the eyes and he just couldnt move.
    she then opened her mouth and with a voice so smooth like from another world she told him
    "Lester... no one here will harm you, you are free to leave"
    She knew his name, Lester didnt know how but he said to the woman,
    "You are just a woman , you cant do anything to me" she then looked at him and laughed
    "Why are you laughing?" Lester asked and the woman said
    "just thinking of you... since you enjoy so much the laugh... from now one every time you try to make a prank, eveybody will know it and laugh ... at you"  and then she turned and left.
    Lester find it very odd but didnt say anything and run. The next day he thought about all of it as nonsense words and went to visit a neighbours farm for his first prank of the day.
    but when he reached the farmers fence... something strange happend to him.
    He started  jumping all around with his hands up in the air and he couldnt make himself stop!!! it was ridiculous.
    when he started to leave... his body stopped. He tried to return to his neighbours farm to make his prank and again the same thing happened to him. He jumped up and down with arms in the air. He then remembered the womans words and he realised she cursed him (was she a witch?) not to be able to make pranks anymore. 
    he started yelling and running still jumping up and down, the other farmers saw him and couldnt stop laughing at him..

    From that day... Lester Crowley became the grumpy Lester we all know, abandoned his farm and now lives alone in a ghost mansion up in the hills with batts and rats
    still visits our farms but he is unable to make pranks without us knowing about it
    thats why most of you stopped seeing him outside your farms jumping  ;)
    He still comes on Halloween though, cause rumors has it he is fond of Matilda and this time of year he is able to see her all day at the village fair
    what Lester doesnt know is that there is a way to brake the womans words (or is it witch spell?)
    if he finds it in his heart to feel kindness and love
    lets all stay and see ... will he be able to show his affection and love to our lovely Matilda?

    I am not sure, I will send a message to the CMs when they get back to work on Monday.  I may have updated the Rewards spreadsheet too late, but I am not sure.

    Just checked you and the rest are on the spreadsheet, but it shows as not being paid out yet, So keep looking for it on Monday. :)
