A setback! Due to material supply problems our new siding will not be installed until late February/March. I'm in no hurry.

Almost done. Just have to run the tamper over the rocks to settle them into the sand and then put that stuff down. I forget the name, it sets like cement or something. My nephew is doimg most of the work, he knows what he's doing. I just write the check and appreciate his knowledge.

I'm happy to say that the closing for the land in VT was on Friday. We are now the owners of 30 beautiful wooded acres. Yay. Now comes the task of trying to get a house built while simultaneously trying to pack, move, and sell the current place - all in the current insanity of the real estate sector. Whee. Gotta call the architect, surveyor, engineer, lawyer, contractor, modular dealer...

The only time I spent in Vermont was during our Niagara Falls / Maine vacation, which (I think) is when I met Aardvark and his wife in Rochester for a garbage plate and then went down to the beach for some ice cream. In Vermont we found a great shop that had lots of Vermont Maple Syrup and, surprisingly, a ton of hot sauce.

Vermont maple syrup is the best. We probably don't have enough stands of maple on our property to make it worthwhile (or a sugaring shack), but we don't really need to because everyone else in the state does and you can't travel 100 meters without passing 3 place that have the local stuff for sale.

If you want the best treat ever, go to a sugaring shack that's in process, grab a ladle full of hot maple, step outside, and pour it on the snow. Consume. That is all.
