On Sunday I was hungry for a Jewish Apple cake, so I made one. It turned out well so naturally I took a picture and posted it to Facebook. This did not make me feel old.
I had quite a few likes and several comments. This did not make me feel old.
One of my friends said he was looking for a recipe for a Jewish apple cake and he asked me to please send him a copy. This did not make me feel old.
Of course I got the recipe together and sent it to him along with my notes that aren’t part of the recipe. This did not make me feel old.
Yesterday at breakfast Kathy and I were talking and I told her about my friend wanting the recipe and me sending it to him. This did not make me feel old.
We talked about the recipe and where I got it. Getting a bit uncomfortable here.
I got it from a friend and neighbor. I would visit her and her mother Sunday evenings and she sometimes had a cake to share. I got this cake recipe from her. Getting more uncomfortable.
I knew her long before I met Kathy. I have the recipe that long! Oh my!
Kathy and I will be married 40 years next month. I have had that recipe and have been making this cake for at least 45 years. I feel old all because of a Jewish apple cake!
