AC 73

When I was a kid, I couldn’t figure out why they took up collection in church. I always thought the collection plate served as sort of a tip jar for the pastor. I recall my mom telling me to put my dollar into an already-burgeoning pile of greenbacks. I remember thinking, “Boy, this guy’s gettin’ major paid just to put me to sleep!”

As I got older, I realized how funny this would be if Hank thought the same thing and tried to take advantage of the situation.

  1. Did you ever read “The Great Brain” books when you were a kid? They are highly underrated young adolescent literature with original illustrations from a young Mercer Mayer. He was always coming up with money making scams like this.

  2. Ironically enough, The Great Brain books were some of my absolute favorites when I was a kid! A little of Hank’s personality comes from his inspiration. I haven’t read one in a loooong while, but I used to just absorb them. You are the first person I’ve ever run into who’s ever heard of of Fitzgerald’s amazing Mormon series.

  3. That’s awesome! I never really made the Mormon connection, living in deep northwoods British Columbia when I read the books we didn’t have too many Mormons if any, and that stuff was over my head at the time.

    I did think it interesting living in Idaho the past couple of years that I was geographically close to the historical origins of the frontier series.
