Everybody knows that whatever you need, you can find it at Hurley Squonk's general store, the Hitchin' Post. Run by Hurley himself, who is always behind the counter, this sort of "everything store" serves as a meeting place for the locals. There's Pinch Burdett, who spends all his time hawking his wife's jams and making up stories; Mrs. Bastrop, a feisty lady who got thrown out of the town's softball tournament; and Gloria, or "Glow Worm," a romantic teen who camps out at Hurley's magazine stand. But the normal, laid-back pace changes when a young couple from out of town enter. Lyge Daugerfield, something of a "mamma's boy," and his fiancee Purdy MacKendrick, have picked today to elope and are in a bit of a hurry. Little does anyone know, his overbearing mother and her meek secretary have put the bumbling Sheriff Bumgarden on their trail to stop the wedding. And if this weren't enough, two brothers, Roy and Earl, burst in to hold up the store! Only their weapon turns out to be à well, it gets a little crazy here. This hilarious slice of life outside a Texas town will keep you in stitches.
