Archimedes

About 3 weeks ago I had to run over to our new place to get a few pictures of the slab.  The bank needed me to text them over.  So I left the house about 30 minutes early and parked by the road, choosing to walk to the house rather than bother with the gate. …

And the forest smells…like mushrooms.

Normally Texas is hot and dry and not at all friendly towards mushrooms in the summertime. However, the month of August was unusually wet this year and the mushrooms rejoiced.  As I walked down the driveway I could literally smell them.  Their earthly, moist, pungent scent filled my nostrils long before I spied the first…
