Vic enters on a rainy day to find that Sade is worried over keeping her menfolk from catching pneumonia in the rainy and wet weather. After getting a new pair of overshoes, Russel is to have Vic’s old ones passed down to him. Will Russel go for the over sized gunboats that Vic has for him? Why doesn’t Russel have his own overshoes to wear?
Embarrassment over being seen in public is the main defense to rebel against wearing the shoes. Russel has a better solution to his problem. He wants to ride to Sunday School in a taxi cab. I think Russel might win this arguement, and rightly so, since it was Sade who accidentally threw his overshoes in the trash by mistake.
