as a vet I only saw the "evil dimorphic fungi " as a clinical issue :(
SO I love the owl pic sitting on the fungus !!!!!

Yes CRguy you are correct, and I will look for good ”KEWL” fungi photos to post.

In the meantime I was thinking.. since Stu now posted photos looking at our world from above - WOW Stu you are brave!!!
That is Not something I would ever dare to do :shock:

So.. from the ground level :) I want to share something I saw the other day, looking really close at grass.

Chlorophylled with joy? :)

Lovin' all the pics so far, although those 2 from stu made me a little queasy just thinking about it. What an exciting experience.

Fonzie is getting a sister. She's one of the pups here with her Mom, Mabel. The little potatoes were born June 22, so they're a little over a week old.

Macpudd, that looks a fantastic trip . We have enjoyed a few good holidays in France . Beautiful to travel round .

That is a first for me with the mask but I love it . You have a brilliant sense of humour too.
Hope your keeping ok .

Being to France a few times, Normandy is very sobering re D Day, as are u baot pens on coast. Southern parts are great for biking to, and just about everwhere has somewhere nice to eat. Your pics are great, Pyro ,keep them coming, and i hope you make many more.

Hello Stu, Yes france is very enjoyable. Your certanly not afraid of heights anyway. Its alwas encouraging what we hear about your mam, optimism is good. I started Loumistine chemo two weeks ago to go along wiht avastin as mri said tumour is getting bigger still. Talk is not great as I get words wrong when i am tired which happens often. Caant walk to far so use wheelchair now sometimes. I hope i dont annoy people here talking about my gbm which is not cc, but this place is a sort of home since i had the cc in 2014.

All the best with your treatment . Glad you feel at home here . That’s very special and I don’t think anyone would bother at all .
Wishing you every success and keep the photos coming .
I did get lost in France one . Drove around for six hours . Before mobile phones . Still like it though .
