At the store, George's Poppa spies a wonderful pair of plaid pants he wants to wear when Big Mama and Aunt Viney come to visit. Although the pants are much too long, he buys them in the hope Grandma Tiny will hem them so he can wear them to church in the morning. But there's such hugging and kissing and talking and eating that hemming Poppa's pants becomes low priority, and everyone finally falls into bed without the pants being fixed. A gentle, funny family story.
