Thanks a Heap!
30 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode, there is the friendly burglar who cleans up after himself when he's done at the house. He always leaves a message written on the wall like "thanks a heap." In this episode, Mama visits Vint at the store to get new keys made because of all the burglaries in town. When they get burgled themselves, Mama begins to put the pieces of the puzzle together with help from Iola. They call each other Cagney and Lacey. It's cute, funny, and better than other episodes. I won't spoil who did it or why but it's funny since Vint gets blamed for all the crimes as the friendly burglar. Mama thinks it's the guy who was mean and tough on her in line for her keys while Iola has a different perspective of who it is when she offers her opinion.
