40-09-17 Uncle Fletcher Unexpectedly Departs

STARRING: ART VAN HARVEY, BERNARDINE FLYNN AND BILL IDELSON
Uncle Fletcher has suddenly decided to go back to Dixon.  He found out Mr. Breep is driving that way and can ride with him and save the train fare.

SEE SOME DIALOGUE AND THE SYNOPSIS
___________________
This episode essentially boils down to 'saying good-bye'.  I believe Uncle Fletcher will miss the Gooks and they will miss him.  He doesn't like the whole 'saying goodbye' business.  This is why he has chosen to leave on the spur of the moment.

Trivia:

+ Uncle Fletcher tells a story about Walter M. Veefy: Was at the train depot, waiting for his train to leave and kissed his grandma goodbye... he kept waiting for the train to leave and he waited all afternoon and kept kissing his grandma.

+ Uncle Fletcher also tells the story about Veefy's brothers drowning in various rivers, which he told again (slightly different) 11 months after this episode aired.
