Saxaphones and Pancakes

It’s the first day of Summer!  But that doesn’t mean that you can take the day off work, so off I go.  Hop in the vehicle, plug in the Ipod music and away we go..



First Song:  a Kenny G saxaphone instrumental “Sound of Silence”. 

Turn it up, listen to the melody, ahhh, what a nice way to start the first day of summer.  Somehow I started thinking about my childhood, my family, my friends and then my mom and pancakes.. (More about the pancakes in just a bit…)

Second Song:  Deep Purple “Highway Star”!!  Holy crap what is THAT RACKET??  My saxaphone brain makes the switch anyway and so Deep Purple it is..

(I haven’t forgotten about the pancakes)

Third Song:  The Eagles “Peaceful Easy Feeling”, that’s nice!  My mind goes back to it’s wandering ways.

I started thinking of all the Birthdays in our family in the last month and those that are coming up, some turning 50, some in the beginning / or end of their 20’s, and some turning teenager age…  Some of them are the oldest in their families and some are not!  That’s where the pancake comes in..


I don’t know how old I was, but I know I was a young teenager, when my Mom (as only she could do), said to me (the Oldest of her children).. and you could tell she thought about it before she said:

“you know – your first child is like a pancake..

– you always use the first one to season the pan!!”


Thanks for not throwing me out Mom!
