It's that time of year. I call it Maple Madness! Maple trees abound with all sorts of pail configurations collecting sap around here this time of year. Maine Maple Sunday is this coming weekend. Last year, we thought we'd head out to one of the more popular destinations, have some ice cream topped with maple syrup and take some pictures. Mistake! Twenty minutes driving around looking for a parking space, walking a quarter mile along a mud-caked road, and very long lines for ice cream sort of had me humming the old Peggy Lee tune "Is That All There Is?" This Sunday I'll stay in and watch some real March Madness on TV or maybe head over to my buddy JP's place for a taste of some of that sugary sweetness. Check out his blog.
