Mushroom Magic

With all the rain, heat and humidity this summer, I have noticed some very unusual mushrooms growing in the park. 

P1000271 A few days ago, this one was a very orange color.  I had forgotten my camera that day.  When I finally remembered to bring it, the mushroom didn’t look quite as magical anymore.  I still think it’s a very interested specimen.  I’ve never seen one like this.

These look like fuzzy stones to me.  The first one is older and looks like it is turning into a petrified rock.  The second one appears to be fuzzy on the top.  These little finds get me all excited:)



On another note, we finally have a working DVD player again.  A few weeks ago I told you how ours wasn’t working anymore.  Our camper is still under warranty, so I contacted the dealer.  Jayco is no longer using our type of DVD player, so they offered us up to $200 to find our own replacement. 

This was easier said than done.  The problem was that it is the surround sound receiver as well as a DVD player.  We went to several retailers and couldn’t find one that would work.  We tried Camping World with no luck.  Kevin did all kinds of research online and finally found an RCA model that he thought would work.  It turns out Wal-Mart sold them online.  We ordered it, and Kevin installed it today.  It took a few hours, plus a trip to Radio Shack for different cables; but it works!!!  My husband is a genius.  I have no idea how he figured out how to get it all to work.

Today was my birthday, and I had a great day doing not much of anything.  We did go to Dairy Queen yesterday for my free birthday Blizzard and Culver’s today for my free birthday sundae.  I love the internet.  All these places sending out coupons. 

I’m looking forward to Korey and Cathryn coming tomorrow and dinner at my mom’s on Thursday with my whole family!

Don’t wish upon a star – Reach for one!
