Storyline

While Kate is away, Uncle Joe has been left to manage the hotel. Beyond the regular maintenance and cleaning duties, one of the administrative things that Uncle Joe believes needs to be done is to collect rent from their guests. Their only guest is 'Old Man' Bill Clayton, who Kate allowed to stay despite he having no money. Her implied want is for the family to treat him like a regular guest while she's gone. However, Uncle Joe has every intention on collecting his rent or kicking him out. Uncle Joe ultimately changes his mind, but Mr. Clayton sees the hotel bill in Joe's hand and decides voluntarily to leave. Thinking that he kicked Mr. Clayton out, the girls, Sam and Floyd treat Uncle Joe like he's persona non grata. Knowing that he did wrong, Uncle Joe decides to run away. He gets a little help in surviving on the road from a few unwitting people. When the girls and Steve find out where Uncle Joe's been hiding, they have to come up with a meaningful way to get him back to the Shady... Written by Huggo
