This is the third episode in the adventures of the irrepressible Opal Kronkie, the zany and lovable heroine of Everybody Loves Opal and Opal's Million Dollar Duck. The setting is again Opal's tumbledown home on the edge of the city dump where Opal has a visitor looking for a tire to fit his 1927 Reo truck. Misguided into thinking that Opal is a rich eccentric, the shifty visitor, Norman, announces (fallaciously) that he too is a Kronkieand Opal's long-lost kin. When Norman confides that his daughter-in-law, Verna, is pregnant, Opal decides to leave all her worldly goods to the baby, and the others have to settle for petty thievery while they figure out how to get around their lie. Needless to say, the "plot thickens" hilariously as they do so, but happily, all ends well, at least for Opal, who emerges safe, sound, and ready for whatever may come next.

Five southern women, whose friendship began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. Free from husbands, kids, and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage to catch up, laugh, and meddle in each other's lives. Sheree, the spunky team captain, desperately tries to maintain her organized and "perfect" life and continues as the group's leader. Dinah, the wisecracking overachiever, is a career dynamo. Lexie, pampered and outspoken, is determined to hold onto her looks and youth as long as possible. She enjoys being married-over and over and over again. The self-deprecating and acerbic Vernadette, acutely aware of the dark cloud that hovers over her life, has decided just to give in and embrace the chaos. A sweet and eager-to-please Jeri Neal experiences a late entry into motherhood that takes them all by surprise. As their lives unfold and years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another through advice and repartee to get through the challenges that life flings at them. This is the story of five unforgettable women; a hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever.
