Aunt Vena, Uncle Herschel, Linda, her friend, Norma, Grandma and Grandpa all came down and we spent (I don't remember how many days, probably just a weekend) at this cottage.
Aunt Vena brought a cake recipe with her - a chocolate cake recipe that she got from her pastor's wife. She even brought a pan with her because she wasn't sure if the cottage would have the right size pan.
That cake has been baked again and again (if, for example, it had been baked once a month since summer of 1967 it would have been baked 528 times). It has been passed on to the next generation (Shelley and Hannah both make the cake). It has been passed on to cousins (Rosemarie baked it this week). It has been passed on to friends (Nancy Anne baked one for us and brought it over still warm).
