I remember trying to get to the mushrooms before Bill. We both knew the secret place they grew. Usually, we would run into each other there. BUT there was always enough for both. My grandpa, Frank, absolutely loved them.
Archie, thinking of you and your family. Loved ypur Mom and Dad.
Good times in the country.
Will try to come, if the snow stays away.

Lots of memories of great times on the farm with Uncle Bill. He was the best morel mushroom hunter there was. I think he made them grow by staring at the tree trunk! Tell Mama and Grandma and Grandpa, and everyone else hello for me.
