See the plumes of steam rising from the sugar shack at the Diehl Homestead Farm? That’s why you don’t make maple syrup in your kitchen.

The bucket list

It’s that time of year again. As plumes of steam emanating from sugar shacks dot the landscape here in the mountains, I’m reminded that I once made maple syrup myself. About 10 years ago, a friend noticed that I had a few sugar maples on my property and suggested that I try my hand at it. “Sure,” I said.

Just when I was about to give up all hope, spring has sprung. Although Mother Nature isn’t quite ready to commit, there’s no denying that winter will be beating a not-so-hasty retreat over the next few weeks, as the snows melt and that big yellow ball in the sky peeks out from time to time.

Pheasant woman: This 1920 photo of Dora Miller, from Lewistown, PA, was taken for the magazine Game News

because the turkey was so large. Miller is Robert Evans’ cousin’s great-grandmother, and he brought the photo to Forelli

to have it restored.

If you don’t have anything nice to say…

There’s a lot of wisdom in that old adage, which concludes with “don’t say anything at all,” but there are times when my hands are tied and I simply can’t ignore what I’m thinking. “Sure you can,” I say to myself in the mirror with a wink.
