Aunt Bee decides that they have not spent enough time keeping in touch with their family and gets Andy to agree to inviting her sister Nora and her husband Ollie to visit for a weekend. They soon arrive with their two boys and while Bee enjoys seeing her sister again, the arrangements aren't very convenient with the three boys sharing a bed as are Andy and Ollie. They decide to put up with it for the weekend but when they invite themselves to stay on for the entire week, Andy isn't very happy. Fortunately, a prison escape provides him with the means to ensure that his uncle Ollie hits the road sooner than originally planned. Written by garykmcd
