My mother-in-law Bessie Dodds Wilson is turning ninety today! Rachel posted up a picture of her own proceedings,Â making a chocolate sheet cake. I am making, at Bessie’s request, an angel food cake with 7-minute frosting. Right now the cake is hanging upside down on my counter, and I’m hoping I can make it look worthy of such an event as a ninetieth birthday dinner. If all goes well, I’ll take a picture. Meanwhile, I thought it more appropriate to post a picture of the birthday girl herself. This is one of my favorite pictures, taken back a couple decades or so ago, of Bessie and Jim in front of their house, where they still live and where we will celebrate tonight.
