Relax! It’s another fun adventure with Archie and all his gang.
On a nice sunny Saturday, Archie gives mom a hard time about doing the chores, and wants to go swimming with his friends instead. She lets him off the hook, so Archie makes phone calls. Things just don’t go well when all Archies friends all have other plans. I guess he gets to get busy on all those chores mom wanted him to do.
When Jughead’s sunburn isn’t so bad that he can’t come by, he convinces Archie to relax with a hammock. Veronica seems to have changed her plans, but Archie just spent the last of his money on his hammock, and can’t afford to take her swimming. Can he return it, or sell it?
When the store won’t exchange it, Veronica tries to help, but all Archie’s friends aren’t in the market for a hammock. Maybe Veronica’s dad can help? It’s not looking good, so Archie sends Veronica away on her date with Reggie. I suppose there’s nothing left to do but enjoy that hammock afterall. Let the mix ups begin.
Archie discovers that his trees are too far apart. Dad has decided a hammock will hit the spot, and upon returning from the store with his new hammock, he finds the trees on the other side of the house are too close together. Using mom as a way to shout requests back and forth, they vie for the same tools and materials to rig up a ppost to hold the other end of their hammocks.
Besides the challenge of building the hammocks, there are more problems that arise, and the building, shouting, and shareing continue. Archie’s hammock is finally put up, and Betty stops by to burst his bubble, and tell about dad’s hammock on the front lawn. For some reason that I certainly don’t understand, Archie is upset and tears down his hammock, and gives it to Betty.
Can you guess what dad does when Veronica stops by the front door to tell about Archie’s hammock? Wow, how wierd.
With all the self imposed hammock frustration, mom comes home with her own hammock. At least she was smart enough to buy one with it’s own stand.
