It's Maine Maple Sunday. The sap has been running for awhile now, and today lots of sugarhouses will be open selling maple syrup and other products. Of course, the big draw will be the free samples poured over vanilla ice cream. Not enticed by that? You can also purchase maple sugar doughnuts, maple lollipops, maple fudge, maple nuts, and assorted maple candies. However, even the fact that I can view some domestic livestock ramping around in mud while I'm sampling some sugary delights will not be enough to get me to a sugar shack today. I plan to take a ride this morning for some photos and otherwise just watch an early spring rain drizzling through the back woods.
