Sadie wasn’t allowed in the helicopter, but she was very much a part of the lake adventure. Son John $pencer took a photo of Sadie in the canoe with him, showing Rose standing up on the paddle board in the distance.
Here is a good close-up of Sadie on the board with Rose. They laughed about the danger of falling off. Rose hinted that $ was waiting to see her fall into the cold water and would have laughed. I’m sure $ would have phrased it as being concerned she would take a splash. In any case, it was Sadie who fell in the water. Rose had to pull her back on the board.
This was $’s birthday, which we celebrated much later that day.
Forty years ago, this was the boy with his cake.
John was amused that $ went back to eating olives and crackers after having cake. It reminded him of the family story that after our wedding, his sisters ate dill pickles with wedding cake. I don’t know about you, but I like my cake standing alone!
