Dewey’s eyes brightened when he saw the collection of lamps on the yard sale table at Mrs. Perkin’s house. He began to rub on each lamp, anticipating some response.

“Uh son, those aren’t magical you know,” old man Perkins said from his rocking chair.

“Yessir! Dewey nodded, but kept rubbing each one in turn.

“Always was somethin’ odd ‘bout that ‘un,” Perkins mumbled.

Dewey continued until one finally felt right.

“This one!” he announced.

“Two bucks.”

Dewey waited until he was out of sight before he retrieved the map his bank robber uncle hid in the lamp two decades before.
