Returning from the county seat to stock up on merchandise, Lum shares with Abner about how they had a close call in safekeeping the money that Diogenes left with them. They still have to figure out something good to do with the money. Mousey enters with another plan, this time about a retirement home. Who wouldn’t like the idyllic place the guys all describe. Rocking chairs, fishing poles, checker boards, reading books, and more. It sounds so great that even Lum and Abner want to move in.
