Comparing this pic with another one Sue sent, we think it was taken around 1932. The man in the middle could have been Joe Suess' buddy Sitzman, because he's sitting next to Joe in another photo. Still, it's a mystery!
Do you remember having your throat blessed at church every February? The crossed candles held to your throat while the priest made the sign of the cross over your head? That was the feast of St Blaise, patron of throat diseases...lol I always connected it with fish bones.
St Blaise was good, but boiled potatoes worked immediately, and better....
