The Mushrooms I talked about here are starting to dry up and wither, but I did take a couple of really crappy pictures so you could see what I was talking about.  It's a shame the Culinary Smackdown Challenge this month is Octoberfest and not shitake.  The leaf blower should take care of them.

They're everywhere!

Pretty creepy I know.
 Think of me as you enjoy your weekend knowing that I live in a world of spores, molds, and fungus (thanks Dr. Spengler).

Where's Buzz?

For all my on-line friends who have been asking - I'm OK.   Minimal storm damage although it's been pretty wet the last two weeks.   The basement is dry and the roof is intact (more or less - it's over 20 years old and will need replacing eventually).  We picked up 15 wheel barrows full of branches and leaves.  And a gazillion mushrooms I've never seen before are growing - everywhere.

I am just under several work deadlines and The Pudge's schedule at night (now that he's back to school, although he was sick yesterday) is killing me.  I'll be lurking but taking some time off from blogging for the next couple of weeks (no Haiku or MCW).  Oh, the Mrs decided now is the time to clean out the garage, so everything is piled in the middle of the garage and I can't find any tools.  Let's hope she doesn't break anything.
