C Is For Cake


Cake.
We all eat it. If you say you don't eat cake, you're probably a closet cake eater. It's the staple of birthdays!!

I get my special cake in December. Have to eat everyone else's cake throughout the year. Not that I mind that much.

Which brings me to my point.


How many of us will celebrate our 91st birthday?? Not too many I would imagine.
My sisters' father-in-law just turned 91 on Saturday and this is his cake. Henry is a sharp, intelligent, bookloving veteran of the Korean War. He is originally from Prince Edward Island, with Irish roots, but has lived in Ontario for a long time. Whenever I visit my sister, who lives with her in-laws, Henry is always sporting a big smile and has a book in hand.
It was truly an honor to celebrate his birthday with him.


As you can see, he is not loving our rendition of the birthday song, but again is filled with smiles!!
This is a classic Henry moment!  One I will always treasure too.

As I look back on this day, past birthdays and more birthdays to come, I can't help but wonder why cake? Why has it always been the go-to item for birthdays? Why not steak. Yeah, big ole birthday steak!!

I'll tell you why...
Imagine frosting a steak. That's why!

Okay enough of my cake and birthday rambles... time to "C" what you have going on.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
