A dear friend, Mildred Brent., moved away to Sterling, Virginia. She was part of our group of friends that would gather on Friday and Sunday to play Mexican Train.
Following church on Sunday, the hostess would prepare dinner. When it was Mildred’s turn, she would always set an elegant table using beautiful dinnerware, real table cloth and napkins. The rest of us just used simple paper plates and napkins, making cleanup easier. We would fuss at Mildred for all the trouble she went to but couldn’t convince her to stop. Mildred was a great cook, too.
