I have degrees in physics, engineering, and law. Never figured out what I really wanted to do until I retired. I moved out on my little piece of real estate, planted the rest in trees (except for a big garden and a deer food plot), bought mama and me a swing and put it in the shade of a big oak tree. We spend a lot of time watching the garden grow, and enjoying the peace and noise of nature. When it gets too cold or hot, we spend a lot of time in front of the fireplace. If I had known how great retirement was, We would have started it straight out of high school. I guess those long hours of farm work as a kid convinced me that there was something else.
wow--i live about 10 feet from the nearest sugar maple.
okay, Violet, ready?
we had dozens of sugar maples when the kids were small, and had this bright (?) idea we'd tap them
to make syrup. (yes, we were delusional!)
because if you don't have an outdoor place to cook the sap, the humidity in the house gets pretty high. lol
it was okay, though, because the kids straight up drank all the sap before we could do much with it.
