46-08-01 Drum the Bum - Visitation Officer

STARRING: ART VAN HARVEY, BERNARDINE FLYNN, BILL IDELSON AND CLARENCE HARTZELL
 
Vic gets a visit from the L. Vogel Drum, the lodge's "Grand Nomadic Stenchel" and finds out the guy used to be a bum. In fact, he used to bum around with Uncle Fletcher's pal who is also visiting.
________________________
Another of those inconsequential "post-Series 1" episodes.  The episode doesn't really center around the Gooks - which you figure, is the whole idea.

Almost all of the series with the new speaking characters - while not horrible - seem to be of no consequence to the Vic and Sade fan. I mean really, who cares about L. Vogel Drum unless he's going to make a mess out of Vic's lodge or his family?

Trivia:

+ Vic claims he's heard of L. Vogel Drum ever since he became a lodge member.

+ The title "Grand Nomadic Stenchel" is just another name for "General Visitation Officer."

+ Uncle Fletcher's pal is named Botch Purney. He and Drum knew each other back in 1932 in the Texas Panhandle.

+ Vic has planned a lunch with L. Vogel Drum at the Little Tiny Petite Pheasant Feather Tea Shoppy.

+ It takes two hours and fifteen minutes to get from where the Gooks live to Chicago by train.
