Today I'm featuring a guest post by my sister, Susan.
She does not have a blog.
I keep telling her she should become a blogger.
She always sends me fun & interesting e-mails about
things going on in her corner of the world.
The Adventures Of Susan & Mike
Friday evening when Mike and I finished our walk we saw a flier on the windshield of our car. My first thought was that somebody hit us and they left their insurance info, since that very thing happened to us a year ago. What a relief to see that it was an invite to a MINI rally/Mushroom Festival. We didn't consider going to it at first, but when we woke up early Saturday morning, we threw caution to the wind (should really say caution to humidity) and left our comfort zone and found ourselves meeting 11 other MINI Cooper owners on a town square in Richmond, MO where Morel Mushrooms were the focus. To insure complete fungus enjoyment we wound up in queue for the parade. One couple that owned the oldest MINI, 1981 Mayfair was intriguing to me. He works 2 weeks on 2 weeks off for an Alaska gold mining company. She is originally from London (love the accent). She mentioned they own a 150 pound dog named Lloyd (love the 2 'L's) that will ride hunched over in the back seat. I was told Lloyd is unaware that he is 150 Lbs. (I too have resistance to owning up to my own weight.) The humidity was extreme but it didn't dampen our spirit of being a "fun-guy" (fungi). ; )

While I was searching for info about the Richmond festival I discovered there are many mushroom festivals in the United States this time of year.
BTW, fried morel mushrooms are delicious!
Hubby fixed several batches a few weeks ago.
A friend, who is a mushroom hunter, shared with us.
