Chicago outdoors: First morel & my wife asks . . .

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Found my first morel late this afternoon.


And I showed my wife it.

So she asks, ``Where?''

And I say, ``I can't tell you that.''

And she says, ``That sounds like a guy who doesn't want to be married.''

So I mumble a specific but general place roughly 200 yards by 200 yards.

And no, no more than that.

Other than it is rare that I find my first morel mushroom before a faithful reader submits the first one for Morel of the Week to Sun-Times outdoors.
