He kept saying, “June come here! June come here!” She came all the way in the house, and he said, “I messed the bed.” She started having a big fit about it, and he said, “April Fool.”
Bertie: I wanted to learn how to bake bread. I said mom, “Give me the recipe on how to bake bread.” She said “Bertie all I know is that I use a pinch of this and a pinch of that”, and she had no idea how to tell me. So I baked my first bread out of a Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook. It said I’ve got to keep it warm. So I had a heater that would go on real hot and then it would cool off. I put my bread on there - well it killed the yeast - so when I baked it, it was like a brick. If you dropped it on your toe it would break. My husband went ahead and ate that bread because he did not want me to be discouraged in baking. So I learned how to bake, and kept asking neighbors and friends and relatives and then I started baking bread nine loaves at a time and I ended up giving them to the neighbors and so I thought, “I am going to teach them how to bake bread. I am not going to do this anymore.” And that’s what I did.
