Whether they want it or not, a threatening note left on their door means they’ll be keeping the baby a little longer. Babies and women aren’t the strong suits of either Lum or Abner. A point we learn as they talk about the baby on hand, and Lizabeth, who is still missing.
Lum reveals a secret he has been doing to keep the baby pacified. Let’s just say he has become an emergency cross dresser.
This could be embarrassing if Lum has to wear a dress in front of Abner. Or even worse if grandpap should enter the store. Although he thinks that Lum is Mrs Luncford. Why is she ignoring him? the disgruntled old gent phones Henry Lunsford to give him a piece of his mind over the rude treatment of the alleged Mrs Lunceford.
