Today is my dad’s birthday–2 days ago it was our friend Gloria’s birthday. So yesterday–the day in between–I went to Sonoita, where they both live, and brought a chocolate cake I’d made, with both of their names on top. My folks invited some of their friends over to share:
The cake was very yummy. It’s the same chocolate cake I make every time, from a recipe from the Vancouver Sun from February 1986.
Here’s a picture of me and my dad; I picked a sunny spot indoors for the photo, with the net result being glare on my glasses:
On my dad’s birthday I also remember Uncle Bill, my dad’s identical twin, who shares the same birthday of course but who died several years ago.
Here’s to another yummy cake next year.
