Taking a grocery order, Abner reviews the extent of grandpap’s amnesia with Mrs Blevins. Lum tells how he got up in the middle of the night to walk out on his wife, aunt Charity. His amnesia has him so confused, he didn’t even stay over at the boarding house.
Grandpap figures his name is Buster V Davenport, from Toledo, Ohio. Why would he think such a thing as that? Lum is determined to get grandpap’s memory back, otherwise the old gent has plans to return to Toledo. The new rubber corporation stands the risk of going bust, before it had a chance to start.

A phone call changes the topic when Lum is called on as Justice of the Peace to perform a marriage between a Pine Ridge resident, and a vacuum cleaner salesman from Toledo, Ohio. Hey! Wait a minute!
