'Never Talk to Strangers' involves two lonely people who may be able to help each other. 'Don't Dilly Dally On the Way' shows a couple about to move house after 23 years staying in a bungalow. 'Pity Poor Edie...Married to Him' involves a working woman whose life is complicated by the discovery that she is pregnant. Finally, 'An Extra Bunch of Daffodils' depicts a man who has already lost five wives, all of whom were highly insured, and is searching for a sixth.
