Hey Donna,

The sun is shining and I have a new(er) car and a funny story.  I was getting pretty tired of my clunker and we tried the cash for clunkers program and kept watching the paper and nothing was working.  Then one day at Costco I noticed a beautiful silver Passat from this century and it was clean and a good price.  It now sits in my driveway.  It even has heated seats.

One day I noticed something like a rubber end on the floor and leaned over to pick it up.  It was wet and disintergrated in my hand.  It was not rubber but fungal.  My car has mushrooms.  I pick them out when they sprout.  They are funnel shaped and light colored, not quite translucent.  I know they'll be back.  Here and there on the edges of the floor mats.  Sometimes between the seats where they are a bit difficult to dislodge without creating many pieces.

I thought you might appreciate a mushroom story.  I also found out last month that my prior mushroom partner from Fairbanks is alive and well at 90.

Hope you're enjoying the Seattle fall.
