Can the previous few posts be applied to "h" droppings as well?

H's droppings at least do not ring like a bell. More like sound of frog returning to its liquid environment.

I was talking to my father this weekend about the "Deer John". He says it isn't deer that do it, dear, it's porcupine! Oh, well, it was a good story while it lasted.

I'm glad I resurrected this post. What with my daughter's wedding and my computer going belly up, I hadn't had a chance to get back till now. How do morels taste, I'm asked. They taste like Pan romped through the forest with the nymphs and wrapped them all up in autumn leaves. I wish I had some now. They are a wild thing, not to be compared to portobello or white ones from the grocer.

I have in my possession a copy of a letter to the editor of the Rocky Mountain News that I wrote some time back. There had been a near-disastrous forest fire near Mesa Verde, in SW Colorado, and there was some concern that the fire had destroyed a certain pre-historic site. After the ashes cooled investigators found that what was burning at the site was a very large pile of rodent droppings. I asked in my letter if it was too late to protect the site under the Endangered Feces Act.

After that I'll just scat on out of here.

>Also has more luck finding spoor, wildflowers, wild leeks

Which is what the deer are doing at that tree!

>Apparently in Newfoundland, wild mushrooms of all sorts are plentiful.

Sheesh, in my youth, we used to seek wild morels ALL the time. Oh, wait, never mind....

A fellow mushroom-lover salutes you for that wonderful imagery, consuelo!
