132. SECOND SPRING
February 18, 1980
Unable to tolerate Harriet any longer, Nels decides to travel out of town to peddle his goods. While on the road, he meets the lovely young caretaker of a boarding house, Molly Maguire. They hit it off and Nels continues to make his trips out of town. Nels kisses Molly, and gives her jewelry, telling Harriet he lost it. Then Charles catches Nels kissing Molly. In the end, Nels has to tell the truth that he is happily married…mostly happy, anyway. When Nels returns home, he and Harriet have a newfound appreciation for each other.
