Oliver's mother has sent their furniture to Hooterville,
and is coming for a visit. But in normal Douglas fashion,
nothing is ever easy.
The letter she sent to Oliver never gets delivered, since the
post office is a class D-1 post office (Part post office, part general
store. Which means they don't have to deliver mail or groceries).
The furniture gets delivered to the NEW Haney place, instead of the
old Haney place.
And the telegram that Oliver's mother sent, telling him of her arrival,
never shows up at all, leaving her to try to get to Green Acres on her
In the end, the furniture gets delivered properly (By Mr. Haney for
a reasonable charge of course), and Oliver's mom ALMOST gets to
Green Acres. She would have made it, if not for Newt Kiley's bull!

Oliver's tractor is a Hoyt-Clagwell. The Hoyt-Clagwell company went
out of business 40 years ago, because Mrs. Hoyt and Mrs. Clagwell couldn't
get along. Since then, Hoyt went into the wax fruit business, and
Clagwell went to the county seat.
In this episode, Mr. Haney whips out several colloquialisms (since that's
how city folks expect country folks to talk). They were:
"You're prettier than a little red wagon going up a steep hill."
"Every time I see you, it reminds me of a speckled hen sitting under a
little green wagon."
"You're as thoughty as a bluebird flying over a tumbled down yellow barn."
And finally..."Learning to like wallpaper is like pushing a
purple straw hat through a keyhole."
