More advice on love is being dispensed in the Jot Em Down store to help Buster win the hand of aunt Charity. Buster plans on sticking to the direct approach, but Lum and Abner just won’t stand for it, and try to get him to dress up his proposal. What’s wrong with just saying, “Let’s you and me get hitched?” US Quincey is on hand, but will his advice be as modern and sophisticated as Lum’s?
Lum sets out how to plan an encounter under the blooming apple blossoms, and have them fall to adorn Charity’s silvery hair. Meanwhile US Quincey continues to talk about hogs, and barn painting. Cedric is conscripted to do his bird calls to add to the ambiance.
How is Buster taking all the elaborate plans? Sassy Frats! He’s still thinking being understated will beat the big production. Lum’s graceful efforts to demonstrate may sound good to him, butGrandpap seems to want to stick by his guns, and for good reason.
