Good news/bad news from this morning

BAD NEWS- the alarm started going off at 4 AM.

GOOD NEWS- it wasn’t my alarm.

;)

That 2.5-year dry spell is a record I hope I never beat!



Post at least 43 photos of mushrooms and other fungi for JaneMarie
#1 Nov. 15, 2013

It’s been over 3 months since I added this goal and I’ve never posted an entry, so I guess that JaneMarie’s birthday is a good opportunity to add the first one! ;)

This is some kind of shelf fungi (a relative of oyster muchrooms?) in Lakewood Park, Florida.

The pic was taken very near Britton Hill, the highest point in Florida, during my roadtrip of the SE states last fall :)



Celebrate my 8 year anniversary on 43T! (read all 3 entries…)
I thought about

listing eight “You know you’ve been on 43T for a long time” entries for my 8th anniversary, but I just haven’t been on here enough lately. I think I’ll wait for the big 1-0 and post 10 entries then :)

However, I’m off work today for a 3-day weekend, so I am celebrating!

And if you want to help to celebrate the day, please also join me in wishing JaneMarie a Happy Birthday- we’re sharing an important day together :)



See all entries ...
