Best Laid Plans
Nellie, Willie, Maggie and Sarah go to meet their Aunt Rose at the train station. Only Nellie knows what she looks like. Mrs. MacTavish expounds. (Via gossip.) Rose married rich Mr. Clark in Halifax. Rose arrives on the train. Willie is almost 13. Nellie and Willie are struggling to carry all of Aunt Rose's bags as they walk home with Aunt Rose. Rose is a MacDonald from Judique. (?) At a party Rose discovers that Ned is a miner, not a farmer as Nellie had implied in her letter. Ned is upset but Nellie says she wanted her only relative here for her wedding. And it is true they are looking for land. (Or did Ned lie?) Nellie apologizes for lying to Rose but says she wanted Rose there for her wedding. Ned is working in a tunnel with with the bottom covered in water. Ned says that the tunnel is unsafe and asks Cap to tell management. Ned is told that he will be working this Saturday so he will have to put the wedding off. Ned tells Nellie. Willie is a lousy baseball player his sisters point out, almost with glee. Willie asks Ned to throw him practice pitches but Ned has to go work a shift. Ned tells Nellie that the mine has to come first or they will be living in the streets. Nellie says she knows. Willie (who without Ned, would be working back in the pit) asks Nellie and she says she still plans to get married. Aunt Rose tells Nellie that this is the first in a lifetime of disappointments. Frawley calls in Ned and says he hears Ned has been complaining. Ned says no but the tunnel should be closed down. Frawley warns Ned not to cause trouble and asks if Ned wants to be out of a job when he gets married. Willies complains and whines to Charley. He wanted Ned to take time to teach him baseball. Ned shows up at Charley's. Nellie tells Anne she has doubts about marrying Ned. She arrives at Charley's in time to see Ned coaching Willie. Ned says he talked to the church and they talk and decide to get married Saturdaymoreless
