“I am... a mushroom; On whom the dew of heaven drops now and then.”

John Ford (English Jacobean and Caroline playwright and poet, 1586-1640)

TIME:  2:09 PM
PLACE:  Homer F. Stemler Memorial Walking Trail
SUBJECT:  Mushroom (unknown variety)

HandsomeHusband did some damage to his calf muscle at MB’s football practice on Saturday and spent much of today in bed with ice and heat packs placed upon it.  Poor guy!  DramaQueen had a birthday party to attend at the Millstadt pool from 1-6pm today.  I dropped her off and took MonkeyBoy and StellaDella to the Stemler Walking Trail in order to take pictures and to let HH rest his leg in relative peace and quiet.  It was daggum hot out there, let me tell ya.  And the spider webs across the trail were plentiful.  After about an hour and 15 minutes of hiking, we were all soaking with sweat and quite thankful for the air-conditioning in the car on the way home.

Christina - It was on a little bit of a hill so that helped!

Sara G - This is the bug-eye view!

Mari - I am always amazed when I just place the camera down on the ground and snap away. At least one photo usually turns out decent! ;)
