Old photo of Granddaddy Hall
I couldn't help myself - I went to my bookshelf and hunted this photo.
My sis had posted about Christmas treats and sucking juice out of an orange. This tradition, according to my mom, was something she remembers from her childhood, also.
I remember that we always got an orange or two in our stocking. It must have been a treat that we didn't often get, because I remember it distinctly.
Here's the photo of my grandfather with Robert and Richard - peeling an apple. (about 18 years ago!!) Couldn't find one with an orange (apples and potatoes were his favorites!!)
