Saps A Risin' and a New Blog

Wow! We had 24 inches of snow on the ground last weekend and this weekend snow's gone  It was 69 degreesWednesday!  That means it's Maple time in Geauga County.  Chardon is known for being the snowbelt capital of Ohio as well as the Maple Capital of Ohio.  Tim and I celebrated Tappin'Sunday with pancakes and the local liquid gold. Yummo! Maple Festival will be the end of April!
My family had been in the area maple industry since the 1830's.  Here is a picture of Grandpa  in the 1930's .
Notice the shirt and tie...maybe it was Sunday!
Do you like seeing this kind of posting?  I have just opened up a new blog :... of Crenel and Thatched Roofs.  This will be about stories of life "back in the day".  I have had many emails from folks wanting a place just for my memorablia and stories...without the art.  I will post there when I have compiled a story to tell. Do you remember my past postings of the Civil War Diary and Lovina's Gift?   That is what  ...of Crenel and Thatched Roofs will include.... present day to medievil England.  You are more than welcome to step back in time with me!   You can  become a follower you will be there when the next story happens.  ( I have not posted there yet.. this article will be lengthened and tweeked and then live there for evermore)


  1. Carol, I think that is a wonderful idea! I am going to go over there right now and sign up, I just love to read your stories of days gone by! I'm really looking forward to it :)

  2. Carol, that is a fantastic idea - love, love, love to read about the good old days - please include photos. Hope Ming is doing okay and hasn't eaten any more thread.
