Today ain't looking so good for Aunt Nancy - she has not one, but four bothersome visitors knocking at her door. From everyone's least favourite relative, Cousin Lazybones, to bad-luck-bringer Old Man Trouble, to Old Woeful, the most complainingest person you ever did meet and finally to slick, sly Mister Death, Aunt Nancy's visitors just about try her patience completely. But Aunt Nancy ain't nobody's fool: she won't let nothing bother her!
