June submitted yet another new article to the SFHS article collection.
"As presents, I received a mouth organ, stockings and mittens. I wanted skis but didn't get them. After we had opened our presents we all sat at the table for our meal. Then dessert was served - rice pudding with prune cream and whipped cream. I continued to defy my mother. I said I would not eat. My mother said, "go without," and she gave my share to my younger brothers. I had a problem sleeping that night. All I could think about was rice pudding, prune cream and whipped cream. That was my favorite. Never again did I defy my mother. "
