With Thanksgiving coming, Connie and Mrs Davis discuss their plans. Mrs Davis is only planning on a small meal for herself and the cat, Minirva. Her centerpiece will be a little squab with trimmings. Connie’s hope is to be invited to one of her friends for the big feast.
How about going home to her favorite students house, Walter Denton? It seems Walters parents have plans to leave him with Stretch Snodgrass, and travel out of town. Before she knows it, Connie finds herself inviting Walter and Stretch over to her nonexistent party. Can Mr Boynton bail her out? Though he has a big Tom turkey, the bird has flown the coupe, and another is added to Connie’s guest list. Back home, Mrs Davis tells Connie that the, well at least Mrs Conklin, was hoping for a get together. Thinking her day is saved, Connie tries to get herself, and the rest invited over.
In the world of Connie Brooks, things have a way of getting mixed up, and going downhill. Mrs Conklin misunderstands, invites herself, Harriot, and Mr Conklin to Connies, gives away their food to the local mission… you get the idea. Don’t worry, Connie is creative enough and a meal of canned salmon gets people fed. The reactions from Mr Conklin are classic, and in the end there’s a good message about helping people in need.
