Sis (Cheryl), my husband's sister, would make this colorful cake for his birthday every year.
She was so proud to present this to him.
I do not think he appreciated it being pink, but never complained.
Because his birthday is coming up, I asked him if he would like me to make this cake for him..He said what cake? I don't remember Sis making me that cake? I told him that if he was at his sister's house, on his birthday, she would make one for him, lickity-split.

When you get old, the first thing you loose is your memory or hearing?
