It was a good plane ride and she had good things to say about you and tapping her woods. I think they were on their last trip to their time share in the Cancun area. She said that she normally only sees you around the 4th of July festivities. I had asked about giving you a hard time if I could come up with something but I never really did. I told her you were active on an internet site and a bit of a character and wanted to make sure she didn't object if I had a little fun. Now she probably thinks I pissed you off as you did not go back there. I would like to come up an tour your place sometime but I am pretty busy during sugaring time. If you see her this summer tell her I said hi.

I never got caught up this year with the new addition and when the sap came it really flowed, I need better pans first and then look at an RO. I am about a 1/2 hour from Jim's shop and plan on making it up there. My friend keeps telling me that I need a less labor intensive hobby but he does love the syrup and mustard and nuts etc.
