Look at all the lovely cakes and it is at a picnic. The picnic is in Katoomba Street. It is lunch time. It is summer time. It is silly to take all those lovely cakes out in the heat. They are having a celebration. What for? Is someone getting married? I am not. There are nice looking cakes, the one on the bottom, fruit cake, is the nicest cake. One is called Therese, the other is Pat. They know one another, they have been with us at times. There are 2 lovely ladies and they are getting it ready for the people to eat. You would hear the traffic on the road and dry leaves moving around and wind blowing the trees, you would hear the kids playing. That is quite time. All the people have cakes and cut them up and sell them and take them home. They do it for curiosity. The cakes taste very nice and the people are ready to get into them and she is cutting them into 2. They look pretty. Chocolate is Pat’s favourite. They have to fill them with cream, jam and icing on the top. Therese likes a good sponge cake, Roma likes the biggest one. They are serving a lot of people, they are visitors and they are talking. They all start eating and there are people everywhere and children and they are eating pretty well. It could be anywhere as long as they have a good time. Val, Pat, Therese at a wedding with all the cakes. There is a river. The ladies dish out all the cakes and then they can go home. The go home at 4.30 or 5.00pm.
