Does anyone else find this picture problematic?
Actually, not the picture but the subject matter. I mean, this horse freaking died immediately after the race? Gimme a break. And all the money was still won?
Also, (on a completely different pictorial note) have you all ever seen these types of mushroom before?
They are Morels I believe? When I was home, my cousin came over with her husband to walk through the woods and find these. I remember eating them as a kid, but when I saw them on Saturday they looked so alien. Like little pieces of rubber that I couldn't imagine ingesting. She told me that they sell them for $39.99 a pound at the farmer's market, which seems like a ton-o-$ but when you consider the time it takes to find each mushroom it makes sense.
Tonight begins the next two weeks when I have not a single night free until I return from NY on the 19th. Then life will be easy, breezy and beautiful. I have a William Ferris Chorale concert this friday and then next week we will be recording a CD which will take up most evenings (plus class) until the following week.
That's all for today.
Morel Mushrooms (My mother says Mushroons. It drives me nuts.)
Busy weeks ahead!
