HAPPY NEW WEEK and HAPPY NEW MOON!The moon turns new on Sunday night/Monday morning in UK and US. I hope everyone has a safe, healthy week and finds some moments of joy.
Here in Indiana, everyone is walking the woods and the fields searching the ground for morel mushrooms! It's a highly anticipated rite of spring here, and the mushrooms are very tasty!

In reply to Annette in SoCal:
Oh, Annette! I'm sorry about your appendix trouble. I hope your discomfort will abate immediately and you'll be fully recovered as soon as possible. Take it easy and rest. Read and watch TV. They didn't keep you long, so don't hesitate to contact them if you need help. Take care of yourself!
Thanks DIANE for starting us off. I liked looking for mushrooms when a child – we had a special spot under gum trees on our farm. But I disliked the cooked mushies – my mother turned them into black gunk. Even now I really only like tiny tiny champignons.
ANNETTE – Well, that’s what I call upselling. “Do you want fries with that? An appendix removed?” Amazing how quick you are back on your feet. For mine many, ahem, decades ago, I was in hospital for 10 days, mostly in bed. Take it slowly as you recover.
The news of PP’s passing reached us mid-Friday evening (our time). The late news on the channel I was watching had no mention (latest news pre-recorded?) but OH came in to tell me. Since then the media has been wall-to-wall with tributes & memories. I thanked PP for removing the endless covid coverage – the latest caused by possible blood clots in under-50s with the A-Z jab.

LINDA - Thank you for your comments on my quotes, now and previous. I often change at last minute what I planned to post as appropriate or otherwise to events & other’s posts. It keeps me “on my toes”. BTW Have an enjoyable visit to Wales and I hope your drive is safe – here lockdowns have brought out more-than-usual bad behaviour on roads.
