OK, I've got a new word to slap you doubting dudes with ... like you, Bob!

you are guilty of

Mycophobia!

Evander Holyfield might have that condition, now. Remember Mike bit both Holyfield's ears in their 1997 fight.

latest for you mycophobes to worry about [I have them in my family too]

just having fun with that, I suppose some of you don't think I'm crazy

found more chick. o. w. , it was very fresh and sauteed up real nice. I had suspected it was quite different if real fresh and it is; the other I had found was older. This I am pretty sure was Sulphurous variety, it tasted quite different, delicious, but I think mostly because it was fresh. Seeded it all around where I found it too.

I also found some Chanterelle - this time I'm sure it isn't False Chanterelle. Will have to double and triple check that and maybe still won't eat but just a bit, or I might not eat it after all. The Ch. o. w. is just plain much safer to be fooling around with. But the Chanterelle does not have gills.

Nope.

I'm just out on this topic. I suppose psilocybins are the cause; I simply can't get down with this. I guess it's like when you get life threatening drunk, you usually can't even stomach the smell of what you got drunk on. Odd because I've only had life alteringly good experiences with them, but I can't handle anything greater than a pizza mushroom these days.

I'll be back when you get to the roadkill portion of OG's costless calorie composium.
Be bold and risk defeat, or be cautious and encourage it.

I did not dig my experience with the magic mushrooms some 45 years ago. I got a weird reaction - got too high I guess is how I would describe it. Just for a short period, but it was a bit scary and that was the end of that. So what happened that you gave it up?

I decided to make this a blog post. If the picture intrigues, you can go there

Time to horrify the mycophobes again

first picture is of Hen of the Woods! First time spotting this, pretty excited about it. Found 4 big ones like this all on a fallen log and took this one. Second pic shows a golf ball for scale, these things get huge; got a little heavy carrying it out as I had to hold it in one hand while carrying a gun in the other. Also shown are some likely oyster mushrooms, but need to look into it to be sure.
