    Wonderfully sweet episode, 12 boys with #13 added along the way of various ages (Don Grady of My 3 Sons fame is one) an unmarried woman who knows nothing about raising boys & now an orphan herself, decides to fulfill her Dad's wish of taking boys west, a housekeeper stern but with marshmallow inside, etc., the soft humorous side of Major Adams, Charlie Wooster & Bill Hawks being on display, make for a somewhat predictable storyline, but it is done with a well written script, even though the viewer knows it will of course end okay, still many suspenseful moments spent wondering how the script writers will manage to do it, wrap the episode up with the expected happy ending, due to all the unexpected twists & turns the storyline takes. My Grandkids loved this WT episode.moreless
