Manny’s birthday book – March 27

March 27, 2011

Kate Greenaway's Birthday Book for ChildrenMy grandmother, who I called Manny, had a birthday book.  I’m posting the entries throughout the year, as they appear.

From Manny’s Birthday Book:  March 27th – Myrtle Eade.

Poor Miss Baby, in the wind,

finds herself unsteady;

And she has to trot alone,

Until Nurse is ready.

There’s the Christopher Robin thing again.
Myrtle Eade.  She doesn’t appear to have been born in WA, but Myrtle I. C. Eade married Hubert A. Boddington in 1935 (1935/35 WA).  There are no further entries in the BDM historical indexes. Myrtle Irene Boddington was buried at Midland Cemetery.  She died in Greenmount in 2005, aged 91 years.
If you know more about Myrtle Eade, please comment.

    I love this birthday book you keep posting pages from. It is so much better than Facebook’s birthday calender and email reminder.
