While waiting for ice-out, I spend some of my time stoking the arch at Bobo's Mountain Sugar, working for syrup. Last weekend we had a couple of those days that make people wish they lived here, but the good stuff is found off the pavement and through the mud, which makes some people (not me) wish they didn't.

Perhaps the third video I've ever done, this is hand-held and rudimentary, just like me!

Every now and then I am struck by something that gives me pause, that makes me stop for a moment and think. It might be the serenity of a fine fall day, or it could be the top fifteen feet of a tre...

Summer is flying by! Get out and enjoy it.
I am willing to admit that, when a man uses "finger quotes" for the fifth time, explaining why the "rules" don't apply to him, a quick left jab to the nose may not be the best response, even if it ...

Mud, Maple, and that time I almost kicked a lady wearing yoga pants. She was wearing the yoga pants, not me.
The curmudgeonly demeanor so essential to my charm nearly veered into the ditch of sociopathic behavior a few times this winter as the Shack Nasties made their annual bid for control. The Shack Nas...

The answer to a question few people ask.

+Tom Chandler That's a fairly exclusive list and I'll certainly take advantage the next time I travel. Such privileges, and all due to my associating with anglers!
