Storyline

Life at the Shady Rest is going well despite Kate's absence. In fact, the hotel is all full. But things look to go downhill when the girls and Uncle Joe receive a letter from Cousin Mae, who is planning on "flittin'" by to take charge, since all, in her mind, is probably falling apart in Kate's absence. Cousin Mae's meddling quickly wreaks havoc for all concerned, from the hotel's relationship with Drucker's Store, to Steve and Betty Jo's remodeling plan for the cottage, to Bobbie Jo's love life with Jeff, to Billie Jo's singing career. In the middle of the "Mae" storm arrives sane and stable Aunt Helen, who is stopping by the Shady Rest to begin her world trip as she has now retired from teaching. As Helen too ends up a victim of Mae's meddling, she comes up with a plan to convince Mae that her time at the Shady Rest is at its end. Written by Huggo
