Mother Annie's Very Best Waffles

ray johns


My mother worked hard as a hairdresser at a local styling shop in town and made house-calls too. My father worked as a maritime union official. He woke before dawn and walked down every week-day morning to catch the local , commuter train from the Claymont station to the Philadelphia National Maritime Union Hall.
So; week-ends were our family days. Early awake, my sister and I spent part of the morning sprawled on the living-room rug reading the funnies(while our parents read the news columns) , Lil Abner, Barney Google, Prince Valiant, Brenda Starr and the Phantom of the Opera were some of our favorites. By the time we came home from Church , our mother had a Sunday Brunch ready and fit for kings and cabbage pickers. Sunday was our special day for a stack of hot waffles.
