  1. Lovely reminder of Scotty, Sandra! I remember her kindness, her smile – and her butterfly cakes! They were like cupcakes with two wings, topped with cream (probably Vera and Joan Simpson’s cream). Delicious! Mary Bland is my Mom, now Mary Swanepoel and 89yrs old in PMB. Thank you – lovely memories! I’ll be linking to this post with much pleasure – again!
