Monday June 5th, 1967
This morning I tried to get everything back in place form the hunt. I fixed spaghetti for lunch, and used some of the ground oryx meat. This afternoon after finding out that we were to have station meeting tonight I shampooed my hair. We met at the Dressen’s house. M.G. has a church council meeting at 5 o’clock. This afternoon I made a prune cake, but I didn’t think that is was so good for it seemed to have fell.
Living in a house with 3 boys I am sure things could get messed up. Notice I said 3 boys, Dad, Alan, and me.
I would love to see the recipe for Oryx meat spaghetti. Actually it did not taste bad at all just like real lean beef.
I do not know why having station meeting prompted Mom to shampoo her hair. I tend to shampoo my hair every time I take a shower. But there are many things that I don’t understand about women so I will not fret over lack of understanding.
Prune cake, that very name conjures up many different thoughts in my head. I have to wonder if this was the only fruit in season or if there was some other sinister force at work here. I am close to 47 years old and to my knowledge I have never made anything with a prune on purpose. I have heard that with age comes wisdom so maybe when I get a little older the joy of prunes will become apparent.
