Although they love Winnie, both Herbert and Dobie feel she controls their lives and doesn't let them have any fun. Herbert in particular wants to hang out with his lodge buddies, and Dobie wants to chase the new object of his affection, Betty Sue Fosdick. They get their wish for some free time from her when she accepts an invitation to visit her sister in Cleveland for two weeks. Herbert and Dobie end up doing their version of housekeeping, which is just fine with them. But life without Winnie also means life with Mrs. Finchley, their strict next door neighbor who promised to look out for the boys in Winnie's absence, and house guest Maynard, who they allow to stay to keep Mrs. Finchley at bay.
