Don't you get PineSol from Pine Trees?

I had a wonderful weekend with my twins and future son-in-law.

It's maple tree tapping time out here in the boondocks. Everywhere you look you see maple trees being tapped, tubes a'flowin' and 5 gallon water jugs filled with sap.

My daughter asked me what was going on with all the plastic tubes and water jugs all over this town and I explained that my neighbors are getting ready to make maple syrup.

"Oh, well what kind of trees are those?", she asked pointing to the trees being tapped.

"Sugar maple trees.", I replied.

"But I thought you got maple syrup from pine trees.", she said. She thought for a second or two and then realized something.

"Oh yeah, maple syrup....maple trees", she said.



My 28 year old daughter makes me crack up...and she's not even a blonde.

Funny! How I miss seeing the sugar maples in the fall! I tried to get my kids to switch to real maple syrup for their pancakes. No way! They wanted their fake stuff back and pronto.

That sounds like something I'd say because I do a lot of speaking before my brain catches up. LOL Thanks for the laugh.
