Hello again Maple People,

A good time at Christmas for me used to mean things like "little tin horns and little toy drums" with maybe a fast sled thrown in. I've reached a point in my maturity, however, when I'm glad to simply count my blessings like the big one that recently occurred right here in our Morse microcosm. Similar to January 1998, we were spared the terrible ice storm that nature has spewed all over the east.

Hello again Maple People,

Here we are again in post foliage season, my vocational equivalent of "change of life". We've suddenly gone from mega-business to business doldrums, brilliant colored leaves to a stark grey tree line, and an abundant harvest to barren fields. Thankfully though, there's a balance to finances, nature and this old guy's psyche; a couple days ago I got a letter from a Massachusetts lady that really made me happy.

Hello again Maple People,

A few days ago Wilson Ring an Associated Press reporter came up to the farm to see me. After a hurried salutation, he asked if I'd "seen the headline". Quicker'n I could say "Syria", he shoved his smart phone in my face and there the ugly headline glared: "Autumn in Arizona and why it's better here than in Vermont". The first words outa my mouth were "Those're fightin' words!" and, don'tcha know, Wilson sent my remark out on the wire to places all around the country, including Arizona!

Hello again Maple People,

Although I'm a "farm boy" right down to my slow lane image , everyone needs a hobby. And, no, my someday obituary will not include the words hunting, fishing, bowling, or golf. I simply don't have time for those "normal" pastimes nor will I even in retirement...don't know how, never learned.
