Romantic entanglements abound, especially when Leo falls head-over-petticoat in love with Florences vivacious niece, Meg, played by Dusti Arab. Meg is engaged to the local minister a good man but rather fussy and scatterbrained played by Dan Harry. She knows theres a wide world out there, but its not until she meets Maxine and Stephanie that she finally gets a taste of it.
