Getting ready for a vacation, the McGee’s talk about fun in the wild outdoors. Camping, rowboats, swimming, and more. A stranger pops in. Who was that? It’s Mirt the phone operator. Abigail Uppington enters for a farewell word for the Summer, and a visit to the hall closet. Billy Mills plays a perky tune.
On the way to the store to pick up supplies, the McGees meet the Old Timer, who tells them about an adventure with a branding iron. In the sporting goods store, Fibber has a hard time passing up the moose call. Harlowe Wilcox arrives to spin the vacation theme into a commercial.
Doc Gamble shops, and recommends items for Fibber’s first aid for the season. Also tips on giving Molly a break as well. The Kingsmen sing, A Little Close Harmony.
Still shopping, Fibber is shown a rabbit trap. Mayor Latrivia arrives to talk about his petty officers, ordinary seamen, and superior officers, only to the confusion of the McGee’s, and in ending up in a slow burn. As Fibber is shown a sleeping bag, Wallace Wimple visits to tell how he flew off the handle with his big old wife Sweetie Face.
