April, !912--so grandma Hesch had a hired girl the summer
she was expecting dad!
Was the Bijou next to the Funhouse?
Look: Larry found that "Minnesotans Frank Faust and Tony Wolke" had a theater in Forsyth, Montana starting in 1922! A brother to John, maybe?
Did Nick Mueller ever hear the end of this? And was a bad year just expected once in awhile? It makes me think of Colony Collapse Disorder these days.
Oh wow, here're the only pics I have of of Aunt Katie (Hesch) and Uncle Blaise Sufka--the wedding pic (c 1940?) says on the back "Mike Hesch, me, Katie and Blaise". I don't know who "me" was.
The later pic must have been their 25th wedding anniversary...from the atlas, of course.
