Good Deeds

Earlier this evening I went to the little convenience store in the building next to mine, for some mac & cheese (I was HUNGRY!)
I was standing in line holding my blue box of Kraft yumminess, and the guys ahead of me were asking a bunch of stupid questions and basically being idiots. Then some guy came up behind me and started putting his groceries on the counter, as if I weren't there at all. I was a little put off. And then one of the two idiots knocked a bottle of rum off the shelf. The clerk was WAAAAAYYYY too busy to take care of it, and I know him pretty well, so I went to the back and found a mop, a broom, and a "caution wet floor" sign. I mopped up the majority of the rum, swept up the bitty glass shards, and set up the sign. The clerk was so appreciative, he bought me a beer! I didn't do it for a reward. I didn't expect to get anything for it. But it was remarkably gratifying, nonetheless.
The farmers market (the one I like the most) opens Wednesday the 12th. The very same day I leave for St. Louis. I'm not worried, I'll catch it the next Wednesday, and hopefully I'll find morels. The one and only mushroom I like. I would like one of the most expensive mushrooms EVAR. Figures.
Plans for mothers day are under way. She wants a picnic. It's likely to rain though. But we have contingency plans.

--Little Bird is hoping for Morels

Have you considered asking your aunt in Texas if she has any extra morels that she can send you? :)

By the way, the word verification below is "inarse"! I'll leave you to make up your own joke.

Have you looked at

Ooohhh, no, I haven't. But I will!! Mama Bird and I have an idea for bruschetta with them, seeing as I may have a new source for the nummy little fungi. A guy in Mama Birds building has some property up in Wisconsin and has them all over the place. He may be willing to trade some mushrooms for some fresh made pasta. Maybe. I'm hoping.

Can you make a veggie sandwhich with the morels and tell me how it comes out? LOL! :D

Good job helping out at the store. This world could use more people like you. *squeeze*

Be careful that your mom's friend doesn't have the False Morel growing there. Some say that eating them causes no problems and others say big trouble.
