In the Jot ‘Em Down store we find Abner on the phone taking orders, Lum tending to his Lumburgers, Doc Withers doing the dishes, and grandpap handling Lum’s telegrams and personal affairs. The logistics of his world famous enterprise is crushing Lum as he has to deal with keeping the oysters on ice, telegrams to answer, and more. Now that he has found success, he’s too busy to enjoy it.
A telegram from a French restaurant gets Abner confused when they ask for Lumburgers for their new cuisine. What happened to the old one?
To add to his pile of troubles, Ben Withers keeps breaking dishes in the kitchen, and with grandpap’s failing eyesight, Lum has to do the work for his hired secretary. Just when it seems things can’t get worse, Cedric is rushing in with more complications.
