I loved pancake day when I was a kid. Mom used to wrap little items in tin foil and put them in the pancakes. It was always a thrill to see what you bit into and laugh at the predictions. Whoever got the nail was to be a carpenter, the ring was for the next to be wedded, the thimble meant you were to be an old maid. But even better was the money - excitedly unwrapping the tinfoil to find... darn it all, a nickel. God Bless the Canadian government for making loonies and toonies because it made pancake day so much more exciting!
As for this evening, I am glad I went. The food was yummy and the company grand. It makes my heart happy to know that Mom & Dad are part of such a tight-knit, caring community.
