In the small frame house halfway up the next block, we find Rush presenting his idea to make some money. Vic is reluctant to go along with any shady business deals, so Rush lays his entire plan out.
The idea is to sell jars of dirt to his friend, Milton, who is collecting it. He wants a sample from each of the lower 48 states. With Vic’s influence, and friends in the lodge who live all across the country, Rush is sure he can manage acquiring the dirt.
The plan unfolds, and Vic’s mind for business kicks in. Soon though, he has to pick the plan apart to expose the shortcomings. What’s in it for those sending their jars back to Rush? Has Rush considered the expense of the jars, the shipping, the demand for each jar to be notorized? Rush has his big business idea deflated, but Vic isn’t without compassion, and comes through with a reward for the good effort. What a cool dad.
