Fwiw, that is my Gandma's Grandpa (i think). I will have my family check page and confirm exact relation, but either her grandpa or father.

Will post pics of my 100 yr old gma tomorrow, along with opening day stuff from last yr. She turns 101 april 1st (no fooling), and will certainly be there if she still is!


Either way, that is the origin of my handle. Seems a better fit than my former reference to my fraternity from 1994.

And now I want a cigar! Thanks Kid!

No, not to my knowledge. Also, family sold the name to larger corp over 50 yrs ago (at least).

Sorta like the movie Tommy Boy -- big corp just wants the brand name and will make cheaper product to put into the box with the recognizable name. Not that the quality of the Black Pete was all that great to begin with...
