I am re-posting this picture that my brother had posted on Facebook on Monday. If I go by the two candles on the cake, it is September of ’67, his second birthday. My dad must have been 33 at the time, and had just lit the two candles on the birthday cake. He made the patio furniture frames (in the background) and my mom the flowery cushions of sponge and vinyl cloth. I am in the middle, mesmerized by the cake. I remember that plastic table cloth with the ribbons so well, and the candle holders. One was an elephant, the other a springbok (antelope).
