Cream of Wheat, 1905

This strikes me as a surprisingly intimate encounter between the Cream of Wheat chef and the rugby player. Is the rugby player looking at the bowl the chef holds for him, or into the chef's eyes? From the angle it's hard to tell. Is the rugby player going to eat the spoonful he's just taken himself, or feed it to the chef? Is he doing "a spoonful for me, a spoonful for you?" We can only imagine, but it's easy to imagine there is more going on here than meets the eye. Who holds a bowl for someone while they eat, whether it is a dainty breakfast, a delightful luncheon, a delicious dessert, or perhaps an intimate, late supper before bedtime?

This week's upcoming events...

How y'all doing?? Is your state in 'lockdown'? Ohio is now; but of course people have misconstrued that. To wit, someone today said they could no longer grocery shop after midnight tonight (when lockdown order takes effect). Incorrect! You can shop, go to the Dr, take your pet to the Dr, get gas, get your car fixed, file a lawsuit, walk your dog, and in Ohio they didn't close churches (though some have closed) but they were asked to keep people 6' apart. I think that's similar to other states that have been put in 'lockdown'.

Hope everyone is safe and WELL! These are very strange times and hopefully it's something we all survive with all our loved ones, and it doesn't happen for at least another 100 years!
