Yesterday we were playing hop-scotch. Without warning we were playing “grown up.” Then, someone told us we were eligible for senior citizen discounts.
We killed him. Don’t mess with the girls of West Point High School.We’ve been getting recruited by the AARP. Makes me want to B-ARPF
The girls of West Point High School rode again today, celebrating another entry into the year fifty-twelve. Still middle aged, mind you. We gathered to usher Linda ( top center) into that circle. Beth – who doesn’t even cook, made the fabulous strawberry cake – recipe follows. Plus we also got to shop around her trunk show, she calls “Dirt Cheap on Parkway.” (her home in Meridian, MS)
Beth travels around to clothing markets and picks up pieces to sell around the state at deep discounts. I think she always has us in mind when she buys her clothes.
Now look at those gorgeous women (above). I must note there’s been no plastic surgery here. No lines, except from laughter.
No artificially plumped lips, no muffin faces. Just real women coming into their own. Don’t EVER CALL US ELDERLY. We’ll whip your glass so fast you won’t know what happened.
Oh yes, the cake.
Beth’s Strawberry Cake -(it made 3 layers) – I understand that a Bed & Breakfast in Oxford serves this – named for her! How many of us have a cake named for us.
Box yellow cake mix
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup water
Large package frozen strawberries (10 ounces)
regular package strawberry jello.
Mix and pour into three layer pans. Bake at 350 degrees.
8 ounces cream cheese
1 box powdered sugar
1 stick oleo (what the heck is oleo?)
1 tsp. vanilla
strawberry juice if needed.
This was delicious and I don’t even like any dessert that doesn’t fit in the chocolate category!
