Agreed! Not surprised at all that you would've done the same thing.

Thanks all...

I firmly believe that every minute of a 4 year old's day is a learning experience. May as well be something that is constructive! :)

That's how Poo got interested in medicine. There was a bad crash right in front of my home. Poo ran into the house and got a blanket and clean sheets out of the linen closet for me so I could cover the compound fracture in the woman's clavicle bone. I let Poo help me. He was about four also. I let him cover her on the other side of the car. He was really good about following my directions. After, I told him why we had to cover her injury. He just soaked that all in and was hooked from that day forward.

The woman had over $3,000.00 in her purse. I gave her my name and address and phone #. Later that day she gave it to her husband and he called me to tell me how she was doing. He came the next day to get her purse. All she could talk about to her husband was about Poo helping her.

Random Photo Thread: The Sequel

Found this in my back yard:

Attachment 21662

I'll have to look it up in my mushroom book. Anyone else know what it is? (The foot is mine.)

Aha! A Black-Staining Polypore. Unlike Hen of the Woods, probably shouldn't eat it.

That is one big, honkin' mushroom Dawg! Before I read your caption I was trying to figure out if it was a flower of some kind. Maybe one of those huge crepe paper flowers they used to sell at fair!
