her Grandmother, trying to find matching thread for Esther's old
wedding dress which Mary Ellen plans to be married in. Curt tells

Curt goes to visit Yancy when Yancy fears that their is something

just write her a prescription for something for the pain. She
has fallen arches. He hands her a piece of paper on which he has
written a diet for her to follow, and tells her to "lose
20 pounds and get shoes with arches." Flossie says to him
as he is packing up to leave: "Dr Willard, you are forward"

you are fat!"

shocked and tell Curt that Dr Vance was their doctor for 20 years
and he NEVER asked them to unbutton their garments!
