Storyline

The people of Hooterville receive news that Kate is finally on her way home. That's when the arguments begin about where her official welcoming celebration will take place and who will preside over such an event. Mayor Potts wants to preside over it at a downtown location. Sam wants to preside over it outside his store. Selma wants to preside over it in her garden. And Joe wants to preside over it at the Shady Rest. With hours left before Kate's scheduled arrival, concurrent preparations are being made by each of the organizing parties, with the most important part of that organization being the plan to nab Kate to bring her to their locale. As they all wait for Kate's three o'clock arrival in front of Sam's store, unfortunately for Kate she has plans of her own unknown to her family and friends. Written by Huggo
