With Cedric still camping out in front of the store, he has added a few extra flourishes to draw attention to himself, and earn more money. Inspired by Gilbert the Boy Trapper book in the library, Cedric is even planting indian corn, and bartering with the native youths to play his pinball machine. How’s the plans for the Wonderful World apartments coming along?
Phone lines buzz as Lum calls on Squire, then Mousey, in anticipation of Gregory WW Dobbs coming tomorrow. Who is that stranger walking through town with the big black beard? Can it be true that Mr Dobbs will donate his time to the project? Abner is confused over Lum’s saying about getting back into the harness.
Mousey enters to tell about making a few changes to the construction project, and about Cedric’s latest escapades with his tent out front, Now, he has built a bonfire. This time to make smoke signals. Can Mousey reason with Cedric to take down his tent, and remove the eye sore and tripping hazzard?
