When I was fourteen I was spending my summer holiday with my sister Lena , and her husband Al. They were really good to me, but I was expected to help out. They had a brand new baby that year, such a sweet little thing. They thought it was funny to get me to change her diaper when it was a “dirty” one. I was happier out riding a horse, or helping with the hay crew!
My mom, her grandmother, made her wedding cake, a fruit cake just like she made for Christmas,
I had taken a correspondence course in “Candy and Cake Making”, so I decorated a four-tier wedding cake for her. But we lived in Vancouver, and she lived in Quesnel. We couldn’t afford to go, but the cake made it. My brother paid to have it flown to Quesnel for the reception, and our thoughts were with her, wishing her many years of happiness.
They are still married , with two children, six grandchildren and two great grandchildren. Did I get that count right, Elsie?
