LOL!!! I had the same thing happen to me in Denver...someone had parked their van in front of my VW and I couldn't see it.

I may need to cancel my ticket... how can a "wrapped" mushroom compare to a stuffed one?
I did both. So it's double good.
I stuffed the mushrooms with cream cheese, cheddar cheese and chopped pickled jalapenos, then placed it on a strip of bacon that had been halved and arranged in a +. Bring up the ends and secure with a toothpick. Grill until done. Yummo!

No, I just turned them inside out. Nice and fresh now.

Exactly! Bacon and toothpicks trumps duct tape and wire.

Wait until you cross the Continental Divide and all the rivers go the wrong way...we even have one that flows north. I also can't figure it out if I am inside, Shrek is always correcting me about which way things are...I just know if they are to my left or right when I go out the kitchen door. Somehow though, I never get lost around town once I'm in the car. I know the best way to get there.

I've never gotten the "go north, then west, then south" thing. I've only recently somewhat mastered "left" and "right". And the Muddy Red flows north (up) too!

Shrek thought I was the only one that did that.
