Vermont humor

Maybe you'd need to be a "sugarmaker" to find this really funny, but I thought I'd share.

There are lots of stories about folks peeling off the wall paper trying to make maple syrup in their kitchen.

Lots of folks take up backyard sugaring, and very experienced sugarmaker has burned a pan.
This guy made up a poem about his "backyard" sugaring:

Re: Vermont humor

That was funny! I can certainly imagine how much it would cost one to try it at home.

Sent this one via Facebook to relatives in VT and friends in NE! Great example of Yankee sense of humor.

Re: Vermont humor

I have often wondered on my ski trips to Vermont why all the sugar houses boiling equipment was in a ramshackle looking shed type of structure, now I understand. Very funny and I could not believe he memorized the whole poem.

Very funny

If you can park it, and not turn around to admire it before walking away, you bought the wrong one.

Re: Vermont humor

Love It !
My personal experience of sugar making went as far as spray painting a big S to mark the Sugar maple trees on my property.
Further research prompted me to pull the plug on the expensive and time consuming proposition . 5 years later I can vividly see the big S on the maple trees .

Re: Vermont humor

Hey Curtis,

That was very enlightening. Thanks for saving me from so much trouble! Your syrup is very much appreciated. Even more so now.

Have fun,

Re: Vermont humor

That was great Curtis. Thanks for posting. I could relate that poem to my adventures working on the LT this winter.
