“Dad tell it again.” As a child, I pestered my dad to tell about getting broken cookies.
This rendition was written by my dad in the 1980s. The remembrance centers on a time in the 1930s when he was a kid.
Patsy Ann’s Cookies was a special place for many people during the Great Depression. Getting broken cookies wasn’t something that happened often, but when it did the whole family celebrated.
I adapted this story for my novel, Chicken Charlie’s Year.
I’ll share my broken cookie chapter tomorrow, so remember to come back.
