Return to the mushroom kingdom

In light of errand running, chauffeuring the lunatic offspring to/from pretend learning, & copious amounts of grass cutting both foreign & domestic, I felt it was a stroke of mad genius to counter heart attack-inducing footie* couch potatoing with a morning stroll through the fungus.

*funny how Chelsea wasn't so staid whilst certain players johnterryfranklampard mostly rotted on the bench (if only Bayer could finish). That said, fuck Chelsea.

Someday I'll be a real boy photographer. This was orange.

Graves, you swine!

Have you no manners? Offer your readers some, selfish bastard.

Some of us were workin hard and hardly workin whilst you were off with your 'srooms (is that what they're called?)
But seriously... I find it hard to believe that you are just using a point and shoot camera to take these pictures! They're amazing.

((Hugs))

tengrain, Psilocybin Laden says no shrooms for the decadent West.

laura, hey now, I still go to work five days a week, working optional.

Eh, some are okay, I still wish I could get rid of the shakes. I put on the anti-rumble thing and always seems the color is a bit off. I need a rich man's camera.

Nice Bambi pic!

I recognize a few of those from my recent journey. But you have some extras that I didn't see.

Now you do realize when I say they're nice pictures, I'm being honest? Especially since there's no blingees or absurd photoshoppery going on here?

Those pictures reminded me of my favorite so-bad-it's-good sci-fi movie: The Attack of the Mushroom People.

Somehow I kept expecting the Keebler Elves or Frodo to show up.

Great pictures, I'm now going to have some cookies and go talk with Lady Sauron.

Jeez maybe his home movies would be better than mushroom day in Clevlanistan.

karl of the österreich, if that's a Dead reference, it's lost on me. If it's not, I'm usually lost anyway.

okjimm, should I have picked some squirrel, too?

if, I used to know a tiny bit about the locally common shrooms, but that knowledge got killed by too many power chords.

thatgirl, honest? Pshaw! It's all part of your program of hegemonic feminist de-testosteroning!

tom, a first-rank classic!

BB, is that an eye in your pocket or are you just happy to burn a hole in my soul?

if, given the sorry state of the Bengals and Browns, this is the real battle of Ohio. We should see if we can get some government scratch.

demeur, if you want to watch someone sitting on his ass reading or uselessly yelling at so-called professional football players, you've got an odd sense of entertainment.
