As I prepare this update we, in the tropical southern part of the province, are
preparing for what is certain to be one of Old Man winters final gasps. I am
currently looking forward to black fly season but before that, we will still
have to suffer through maple sugar season and all the temptations that
presents. Every Herring Choker that has yet to experience the pleasures of a
working sugar camp is missing an important part of our heritage.
