Here's Your Dime, Spill It?
4 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mama Thelma Harper has been accused of being forgetful while Naomi rescues a dog known as Old Lady from the parking lot at Food Circus. Since Mama doesn't care for dogs, Naomi, Vint, Iola, and Bubba pretend that the dog barking doesn't exist. So Mama thinks she's hearing things or going crazy by the sound the dog barking. Unaware of Old Lady's existence, the family now has an answering machine which Iola gave to them. It's funny how they each take turns leaving the message for the recording. The messages about how the Old Lady should be put to sleep or go to a home where she can run around and be sedated have Mama Harper on edge. They think the messages are for her and when food is disappearing from the kitchen table. Mama thinks she's going insane.
