STARRING: ART VAN HARVEY, BERNARDINE FLYNN, BILL IDELSON AND CLARENCE HARTZELL
Happy Birthday, Mis' Keller!

Uncle Fletcher wants to surprise his landlady with an almost  quarter ton present; a piece of railroad to be used as a heavy door stop!

SEE THE SCRIPT
___________________
This absurd idea by Fletcher will pop up over and over again and be expanded upon in other episodes.  It's typical of Paul Rhymer to take an absurd idea (especially by Uncle Fletcher) and by repeating it many times, gets the listener used to the idea.  After a while, Fletcher's absurd idea of a 400+ pound object as a door stop no longer seems absurd but almost normal.

In this episode, Mis' Keller is said to be named, 'Geraldine Laura Keller.'  In 1944, she was known as Leiota KellerIn another episode she was known as Annabel.

Rush makes reference to being at the YMCA to watch the fat men play handball.
