mushroom



At times the fall season can put me in a mild funk.  Something about it draws me back to my youth when all the bomb test were being done.  Duck and cover signs were posted in the halls of our high school.  Nuclear attack drills included moving to the central halls, getting on our knees and covering our heads with our hands. May there be a generation of children not having to endure these types of drills.

A second thought for mushrooms is certainly much happier.  The tasty morel mushroom would randomly sprout in our backyard garden.  Such sweet morsels for the taste buds!  From this happy place I submit the following.
