This picture is at our kitchen table in Upland, California in 1958. My sister Linda is showing her Tiny Tears doll on her third birthday. Notice only half a cake with 3 candles. My mom gave the other 1/2 cake to an 80-some year old named Gertrude. She lived across the alley. She could not cook, so my mom would have us kids take over part of our dinner to her many times a week. Mom had a heart of gold.
