A Fun Guy

Mushroom Funji

On my walk to the mailbox one day last week, I stopped in my tracks when I saw this mushroom.  Such bright yellow and orange and quite large – probably about 3 inches in diameter.

I am NOT a mushroom fan, so don’t know a lot about them, but my guess is this one would not be a good one to eat!  Look at all the icky things growing on it!

Anyway – it reminded me of one of only two jokes I have ever been able to remember in my life.

Our youngest son’s girlfriend often tells a “corny” joke or two when she comes for dinner or a visit.

I’ve always been envious of people who can remember jokes and tell them well.

My father-in-law had a full arsenal of corny jokes, and he would adore Liz for it if he were still around.

So are you ready for the joke?

Here goes.

A mushroom walks into a bar.

The bartender immediately says, “Hey you – get outta here!  We don’t serve your kind in here.”

The mushroom replies, “WHY?  I’m a Fungi!”


Cheers & Happy Monday Hugs,

I came across this little gem on my lunch time walk this afternoon.

It was a rather dreary, cool, overcast day, and this little mushroom – with its cap turned up instead of down – formed a little bowl to hold the rain water and created what looked like a miniature bird bath.

The wind was blowing and caused the water movement to look surreal.  The intricacy of the black curled ends of the mushroom cap created such beautiful detail.

It made me wonder about the miniature “world” surrounding it.  Were there tiny insects that bathed or drank from it?  Will a larger animal come and lap it?  Eat the mushroom?

So much detail in such a small space.  So much going on if we just look.

And it made me wonder…

Is this what we look like to God above?

Is there another life form out in the galaxy watching us as if we are a miniature world?
