Yesterday was Thursday, January 6.
On January 6, 1944, a little baby named David Lee Greenwalt was born in Shawnee, Oklahoma. So, yesterday was David's sixty-seventh birthday. It was Meche's last day before she left to travel back home to Tuxtla-Gutierrez, Chiapas. So, Sondra and I took David and Meche to a restaurant called Dave & Buster's in the Ontario Mills area. While there, he got a birthday call from his daughter, Lisa, who lives in Seattle. What a wonderful day it was.
David likes cobbler, so Sondra made a berry cobbler for Wednesday evening after dinner at Applebee's. But, for his "birthday day," she made an applesauce cake with real whipped cream. Actually, Meche was willing to help make the cake by mixing and stirring the ingredients, so Sondra guided her through the process. Meche did fine, and it was delicious. There was a reason for the cake being applesauce, as that was the cake that mom (Grandma Greenwalt in Oklahoma) used to make for him every birthday when he was growing up. So, this brought back memories from days gone by.
It seems like we talk of the "old days" more and more now! It is actually quite fun to remember some of the things we experienced as kids and as a family back in the 1950s. Quite entertaining, as we recall several of the funny incidents in our childhood!
