Storyline

Bonnie (nee Jones) Thompson is pregnant and attends a lecture given by a quack doctor named Pilcoff, who, as soon as the baby is taken home from the hospital, sends Nurse Cordell, whom Granny Jones is soon calling "curdle-puss", over to take care and charge of the new arrival with the intentions of seeing that the baby isn't handled by or exposed to germs by the other members of the semi-massive Jones Clan. This leads to complications. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>
