Auntie Maggie celebrated her 70th birthday a couple of days but her birthday party was celebrated today. I had a chance to meet some family that I had not seen for some time - Debbie and her family, Sherry and her family, Jenny's children, Pearly and her family and Auntie Doris' daughter Mary whom I had never met. She was about 3 years old when I first left Guyana. Auntie Maggie looks great for 70 as can be seen by this picture.
This is what she looked like in 1956 (I was 2 years old).
Debbie make and decorated a most beautiful three-tiered cake. The bottom later was chocolate; the middle later was red velvet, and the top layer was yellow cake which is Auntie Maggie's favourite. The cake was covered in a white fondant and there were 70 daisies which she also made - brushed with gold dust which the twins did. It was very, very impressive as can be seen by the picture.
I was so tired that I did not have any of the cake so that means that we'll have to do this birthday party celebration again - complete with a three-layered cake - just so that I can have some. How's that?
