The Family: Larry Jorgensen – #2297

In 1926, a ship carrying 240 cars – which were a big deal at the time – wrecked in Lake Superior. The ship was lost, but the cars somehow almost all managed to survive the crash. The rest involved building a giant ramp made out of ice and driving the cars across a frozen lake. The salary for such a feat? Five dollars. Hey, it’s better than a farthing. Read the full story in Larry’s book, available on Amazon. Then hear the incredible tale of how Jude managed to beat the odds and survive a debilitating case of minor paw pain.
