Vic gets an official letter from the Chicago lodge headquarters notifying him of changes in styles of the official regalia. He makes mental plans of where and how to get this done as Russell and Uncle Fletcher keep him company.
A subpar episode. This episode lacks bite and really isn’t that funny.
- Vic and Russell seem real concerned about Uncle Fletcher sitting on the porch railing.
- In 1909, Uncle Fletcher was in a human pyramid and stood on the
shoulders of Howard Nelson at the Whiteside County Fair while people threw watermelon rinds at him.
- Uncle Fletcher contends that Mis’ Keller made up the expression, “No news is good news.” In reality, the phrase is said to have originated from King James I of England, who allegedly said “No news is better than evil news” (1616).
- It seems pretty apparent that Sade is out of town, although we have no idea where she’s gone.
- Vic uses two nicknames on Russell, George and Harry.
- Vic and Russell seem to think Mis’ Harris is a dressmaker. Vic thinks that Mis’ Keller is an “expert seamstress” but Uncle Fletcher doesn’t seem to want to confirm that information.
- Uncle Fletcher tells the story of Alton N. L. Halter of Dekalb. Passed away while he was awake. Waved goodbye to relatives and then walked to the undertaker’s office on his own two feet. He had practiced dentistry for 58 years but never had a patient. Had a wife named Grace.
