Storyline

It's Kathy Jo's first birthday. The lead-up to the birthday party doesn't come off quite as planned. Billie Jo, who is out of town on a singing engagement, was planning on making it back in time for the party, but she may have to decide if the party or her career is more important when her singing engagement is held over. Janet and her nursing assistant Bobbie Jo are called off on a medical emergency which ends up being a little more plentiful than they first thought. Sam has a last minute court case where he has to perform his justice of the peace duties which involves an uncooperative defendant. Steve is called back to redo a recently completed job where insects are infesting the crop. And Uncle Joe has taken Kathy Jo into Pixley to buy her whatever she wants for her birthday present. That gift ends up causing a bit of an issue in town which delays Uncle Joe and Kathy Jo indefinitely. So when the party rolls around, will anyone be there besides Betty Jo and Dog? Written by Huggo
