By Daniel-

This post is, by all accounts, silly. Likely it will mean absolutely nothing to all but a few with Hoosier blood. Sarah, Madeline, and I were hiking this afternoon at Percy Warner park here in Nashville. We were nearing the end of our hike when we passed a man on the trail who was carrying a handful of these:

Morel mushrooms. For the uninitiated, these bad boys are found in the woods in spring and are one of the finest things to hit your taste buds—that’s right boys and girls-they’re edible. And what a delight they are! They’re a bit like a poor man’s truffle. I had assumed you couldn’t find them in Tennessee, as they are typically found in colder climates. But to my delight they were growing right here in Davidson County. Excited by the possibility of finding some of our own, we hunted for a few minutes. It wasn’t long before M started to get impatient and we had to head home. Maybe one day…

Just a little side note for you guys, legally- its probably not such a good idea for this blog to be linked from Daniel on the city website... that's kind of like using a public office for personal gains.. ya know? Just thought I'd give you a heads up!

Still praying for you guys!
