Abner is expecting an important package in the mail from his daughter, Pearl. He’s jumpy, and nervous as he anticipates what secret present might be in the package. Does Lum have any idea of what it is? Can he help calm Abner down?
Grandpap enters to do his cantankerous best to pick a fight with Abner. He also has a bone to pick with Ben Withers about the Voice, and the lack of action Sheriff Henry Lunsford took in figuring out who it was.
Ben_Withers nters, and has someconfusing news about the vacation brochures he has with him. Is he going camping? Lum shares his ideas about a vacation to Alaska. Though he’s a free wheeling guy, now that he lost his job as the town’s vetinarian, he can come and go as he pleases. Nobody wants to see him go, and it’d mess up grandpap’s plans for that honor for capturing the Voice.
