It’s dinnertime and Gildersleeves enjoys a meal with his famly. Leroy gripes about Marjorie’s affections of late, and after announcing her engagement last week to Bronco. Jealous of his neighbor, Gildy wants to outdo Bullard with his own New Years Eve party. Making the rounds to his friends, Gildy tries to convince each one that his idea of a hayride will be more fun than a party with Bullard. When Katherine, Floyd, and the rest all say they are planning to go to Bullards, it makes Gildy mad, but can you blame them? A hayride in winter isn’t very appealing, and Bullard had his all planned long before the party Gildersleeves hastily threw together.
Feeling down, Gildy meets Bullard on the street, but it only drives him deeper into his pity party. Marjorie tries to calm her impetuous uncle. will he change his mind? will he have to disappoint Leroy over the cancelled hayride. who wants to hang out with girls, and dance with them when you can go on a hayride with the guys… and a horse! Just when Gildy is at his lowest, he gets an unexpected surprise from his friends.
PS: Though Gildy is a likeable guy, I would have to bow out if he were to invite me to a mid winter hayride. However, it does go to show how much his friends and neighbors respect him when they make their surprise appearance for him at the end. Giving up a nice, warm, cozy party for a chilly night in the open air. I suppose it would depend on how adventurous I felt at the moment though. What do you think? Drop me a line in my comment area.
