George

You see this picture below? On the picture, it says George. I have never met George and I probably will never see him. I have the impression that George is not around anymore. I also have the feeling that George was a made man. Don't ask me why. I have had this picture for about 16 years now. Of all the pictures I have ever owned, this one has stayed with me where ever I have gone. It's not like I wanted it to, or anything, it just has.

I was in a thrift store and looking for a suit for one of the boys about 15, 16 years ago. I found one, but after I got it home, it gave me the most horrifying feeling. It was a boys dress suit, black, in perfect condition. I love thrift stores, and for growing boys, it just made sense. In the pocket, I found this picture. I can not bring myself to throw it away. I have no idea who the guy is, where he is, or what he is. If anyone recognizes him let me know. Unless your last name is Corleone, then just disregard all of the above. :)

Anyone else have any weird superstitions about photo's? Any ghost orbs in your pictures? Any gangsters in your pictures? Excuse me, did I just say gangster? I meant business associate.

I think.

He does look like a made man. or maybe a G-man

Now, I never even thought of that. He could have worked with Elliot Ness himself...

What do you mean by the phrase, a made man?

This is Phil Spinelli. He worked for the mob in Chicago and at the time of this photo, he was up north at a resort in Spooner, Wisconsin. The mobsters went to these resorts regularly for a break from the everyday trials of their work. The Sawyer County Sheriff would grant them immunity and allow them to hunker down at the lakeside if they kept their guns and violence back in Chicago. Phil was a bookkeeper and came on the trips to give reports to the bosses.

If you believe that, then you know who might be in that picture, or not. More puzzling to me is not only who is it and where is he and when was it taken, but who might appreciate seeing this photo, who is left? Relatives, offspring. A whole lifetime of many people that might have something to do with this man.

Merry Christmas.
