    Look on the bright side. Those bags are highly biodegradable, and you're not stepping in it. I would buy those Mutt Mitts for walking our dogs when we lived in the city (properly disposed of though), and if we still had new bags left after a year or so, they would start degrading in the box they shipped in.

    Whenever I hose down my ATV I use an exhaust plug so water doesn't get up into the engine. Can something like that be inserted up the you know what when walking a dog so the dog doesn't you know what on the path? - I'm just saying

    Ok since you started it. Hello everyone I’m
    ok you started lt. hello my name is AL I’m a morel addict (You all say hello AL) I want to share my addiction problems with you. Recently I have been selling myself to men and women for a nickel a shoe.I have met many people I don’t know in the woods to feed my addiction. I often bring others places to get their fix just to be able to get some.no matter how much I get I always want more. I dream of them. I hide them in the freezer shakers and under wet paper towels. I’m convinced of this fact... no cure.

    Plateful of Morels
    Today marked the end of the season for me in southeast Wisconsin but not before coming out of the woods with these gold gems. It was a bountiful year after having discovered several new producing elms. It paid off this year to go a little deeper and into a little heavier brush but the rewards of taking the risks were big. Now comes the period of reflection and the feeling of gratitude for the time spent in Wisconsin's woods. Some dear friends left this great state for Arizona recently. My roots are too deep to leave and someday like the old dead elm I too will be pushing up mushrooms through the warm, moist soils of Badger country. Have a good summer. 008.JPG
