At home, Pa Silo gets a kick out of the write up in the newspaper on Annie’s surprise birthday party. Ma and Pa talk about Annie’s special ring, that kiddies can get one just like it, and how proud Annie is of hers.
Sandy barks to welcome Annie and Joe home. Will Ma be put out if Annie is this late in coming home all week? She tells how she and Joe have taken on the job to help Jake in his store. They’ll have a gay time of it, and get paid too!
Pa Silo is pleased, especially at the idea of Annie having her own spending money, with Christmas coming soon. Ma adds her ideas on how Annie might brighten up the shop while she’s in charge.
