Beautiful DD TIKY

ThoughtIKnewYa posted 4/26/2014 23:38 PM

Thanks, Moo! I think she got the best of both of us! I know I've told you this a few times, but she's "Moo", too! Her sig line on outgoing email is, "You've got Moo!".

ETA: She's always been like a walking cartoon sunshine.

Ooh, I love these. Bummed I missed out on all of the pooled posts, but I love being able to put faces to names!

Here is us (to be poofed, eventually).


H and our (his) rescue pup, Maisy (he had a cold):

Our DD, at Disneyland recently:

Me and FWH:

You're gorgeous!

And you have a little walking sunshine, too!

Want2help posted 4/27/2014 13:23 PM

Thanks, TIKY, and yes, we have our own personal sunbeams in life!

He's mine, helping me wrangle escaped hens the other morning (we were both in our pajamas). I love the way the light hits that hair!

I've been extremely busy dealing with more DS issues 😢 and traveling non-stop for several months, and been away from SI for a while, but glad to see the pic thread is still alive with so many new faces! Yay! So many beautiful faces!

I've done quite a bit of mushroom hunting in the last month, so I thought I would post a pic of some delicacies for y'all to drool over, lol.

Anyone else hunt morels?

Some of my morels, the darlings of the mushroom world:

And H, holding his first finds of the season, (he was like a kid in a candy store):

Great shot. Does he wear camo so the morels won't see him coming??

painpaingoaway posted 4/28/2014 09:32 AM

LOL TR, he was turkey hunting in the morning (took 2 weeks off from work to hunt ) and hunted morels with me in the afternoons.

PPGA, we just started hunting morels! We've yet to find any, but we just went this last weekend!

We get LOTS of chanterelles in the fall!

Those are beauts! I'm drooling and envious!

Tired Girl, you guys look great! Glad to finally put a face to the name!

TG and HL, you both look really happy in that picture

PPGA, we get morels at our place up north, but some years are better than others. We often miss the best hunting because we're not up there during the week. Last year we found one. I was mowing the lawn, and just happened to notice it in the yard. I showed it to my brother, and the next morning he left and took it with him. Needless to say I won't be showing him if I find any this year

I'm sooo glad I came back to SI for support. I'm also glad to put a face to many of your names. Many of you have given me wisdom that I truly appreciate, as it's really helping me and my fWH heal the right way.
Thank you for sharing! You've all made me smile and feel so safe here

That is a sassy-looking little girl. Adorable.

painpaingoaway posted 4/29/2014 06:48 AM

Wow want2help, you hunt morels, chanterelles , and raise your own are a girl after my own heart! We had some chickens when the kiddos were little. I remember a Japanese Silky my kiddos just loved. Unfortunately, some predator got it, and the kids were devastated. 😢. If you find any morels, you must post pics!

Wifehad5, your brother stole your only morel? how dare he, lol! it just cracked me up when you wrote, "he left, and took it with him". Hope you find some more this year. Our season is over now. I must wait another 360 days, grrrrr.

Want2help posted 4/29/2014 11:19 AM

PPGA, we raise chickens (my H wants to add ducks), grow our own food, and hope to add beekeeping to that very soon. All on a regular sized suburban plot of land, outside a major metropolitan area.

We also teach our DD wilderness camping, fishing, mushrooming, etc.

I will definitely post any morel pictures, feel free to message me tips on finding them anytime.

The only morels I've ever found had a similar fate as WH5... my DAD claimed them as his own (I found them growing by my grandmother's old burn pile).

BreatheAgain10 posted 4/29/2014 11:46 AM

Now y'all have got me curious... What are morels?

painpaingoaway posted 4/29/2014 13:06 PM

Wow want2, very cool. (Tip: avoid ducks they are very nasty and messy).

Morel tips, well I'm in the South, so it may be quite different in the PNW. We start looking late march early April, when the ground temp (use a cooking thermometer) reaches 53* in the shade at 8am. Once the ground temp reaches 59* you are wasting your time - move to higher elevations.

We look in river/creek bottoms around poplars, elms, and ash trees. Or, anywhere where the ground has been disturbed in the previous year by burns, logging operations, or digging. I understand burnsites are HUGE morel sites in your area.

We also grow shiitake, Lionsmane, and chicken of the woods on logs. We have about 700 logs now!

Breathe again, morels are a highly sought after, very expensive mushroom that only grows in the Spring of the year, and usually only for about 2 weeks in any one location. They taste unlike anything you have ever tasted before, and to me, taste nothing like a mushroom. I can't even describe the taste, but it is AWESOME!

Want2help, make sure you are positive on your morel ID. There are 'false morels' and there are reports of some people dying from eating them.

Are false morels worse than loose morals?? Just wondering ...

painpaingoaway posted 4/29/2014 13:20 PM

Haha TR, 'loose morals' can be pretty dangerous too, but don't even get me started on that. We are in F & G, lol.

BreatheAgain10 posted 4/29/2014 16:51 PM

Now y'all have me curious to try morels. I take it they have to be purchased at specialty stores, right?
