I can tell you that being confined to a wheelchair is for the birds. I go back to the doctor on Wednesday, Nov. 24. He said it is healing real well. Sure hope so.

I have been eating persimmons for breakfast that Sue and Cecil gave me before I broke my leg. They have really have been good. I hope you enjoy the cake I am sending.

3 cups of flour
1 tsp of baking soda
3 tsp of cinnamon
1 tsp of nutmeg
1 tsp of salt
3 cups of sugar
4 eggs
1 cup of oil
1 1/2 cups of persimmon pulp
1/2 cup of chopped pecans.

Preheat oven to 325 degree. Oil and flour two loaf pans or one bunt pan. Mix flours, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in one bowl. Mix sugar, eggs and oil in another. Mix ingredients by altering flour mixture and cream mixture until all is mixed well, then add persimmon pulp followed by pecans. Bake for an hour and ten minutes. Don’t let those persimmons go to waste. They are good in cookies also.

You’ll find that they are Gooder’n Syrup. Von.
