Judge Hooker has convinced Gildy to get a check up from the doctor. Will there be anything serious found? Nothing that a little rest won’t cure. At home the great man finds Leroy busy, cooking up a batch of root beer that he hopes to sell. The trip to the woods may even help with Marjorie’s latest teem age drama.
The car is packed, and since Birdie is also going, Judge Hooker agrees to keep an eye on the place. Rubber is in high demand for the war effort, and the thin treads on the tires soon means a blowout… or could it be something else?
On the lake, the mighty fishermen row out to do some fly fishing. Leroy learns the tricks of a true angler from his uncle. After 5 days with no luck, the chance arrives to catch a trophy to take home. The family head home in high spirits. The only thing to disrupt the fresh air is… the smelly carcass of the fish. Is it going to be worth the hassle of transporting it back to Summerfield? Has the judge done a good job at keeping the gypsies and burglars at bay?
