Cavendish absolutely "loathes" Dakota...
As Barbara's nimble fingers danced across the typewriter keys, the blue-eyed woman noticed there were more changes on the menu than usual. The soups were lighter, and pork was eliminated from the entrees, among other things. The whole menu was radiating the soft spirit of spring.
Just above the desserts came the list of vegetables. Carrots and peas, asparagus, tomatoes and corn and succotash, lima beans, cabbage--
Barbara stopped. She stared at the next item on the list.
Then all of a sudden she was crying.
Tears trickled down her face and she didn't bother to wipe them away as they fell on the menu, blotting the ink. Her head went down on the typewriter, the keys rattling to every soft sob she let out.
She was crying over a menu. A menu!
But what she was upset about had a special meaning to her. The item on the menu was dandelion and hard-boiled egg. But forget the egg! It was the dandelions. Dandelions that her Walter would lovingly weave together and place on her head, his green eyes twinkling. Dandelions that he had given her on the night he proposed.
Those yellow flowers, a symbol of spring, were reminders of Barbara's happiest days, and she felt miserable.
