Meet George and Biffy Warner, they are from out east, and went on there summer holiday to the family place in McCall Idaho. Turns out Biffy’s father was well off since he was the first to sell vast amounts of potatoes to a big potato chip co, now of course sold to a large soda pop company, anyway you get the drift here. Potato Farmer hit gold..en crispy gold
The entire family lives off “The Chips” and they all laugh.. “You cant just spend one!” Any-who, they loved to take snap shots when the Warners all came together at the annual board meeting to discuss Fathers Chip war chest.
We here at Woody Boater are lucky enough to have found some of the slides on ebay, and well, since Buffy and George died years ago from heart failure, actually decades ago. Apparently you should only eat one.. We are able to read into the slides whatever story seems to make sense. So?
Now for a reality check. As WASPY as the Warners are, they have George Speck to thanks. Yes an Mohawk with African American ancestry who is credited with popularizing the Potato Chip. Thankyou Mr Speck, for all you gave me.. all 40 extra pounds! Here is the real history of George.
