Nerves run high as Abner deals with the stress of his daughter, Little Pearl, getting married. Lizabeth is more nervous than a frog sitting on a hot stove, and Lum tries to help Abner get dressed. Is it possible that women actually like the tears, and this kind of thing?
Neck ties go untied as Ben Withers pops in for a visit. Can the gents do Ben a favor, and help him tie his tie as well?
Imn the church, the music starts as people take their place. Will Lum keep the ceremony short? In his words we find that Pearl is marrying a wounded vet. The two met when he went to the military hospital where Pearl was also serving, and they are going to settle down away from Pine Ridge.
Lum officiates the vows between Erwin Francis Cotter, and Lucy Pearl Peabody. The service is indeed brief, but Abner can’t hold back the tears in this milestone event in his life.
PS: Does anybody have a clue about the shows that lead up to this one? When did Pearl get back? Is there followup to this episode? Who did the voice we hear for Pearl in the show? The next shows I can scrounge together leave a big gap between this one, and the next one in a couple months.
