redfred:First thing cool picture...2nd thing two of the most handsome hobos I’ve ever seen. 3rd thing is that a saw I see in hand if so what size morels are you finding??? I think we both know were the B&O railroad runs I may need to do a better job on my end... good luck
Thank you so much for your generosity and if it weren’t enough that you pointed me in the right direction with the morels the finger point removed all doubts ( I think that’s an index finger) as to what side of the tracks I should be on. This photo brings back memories of placing a penny on the track and waiting for the train to go by. I’m sure this was not your intention and I think that you are just working on a new morel recipe. Perhaps morel scaloppine, mashed morels, flat iron morels I’m not sure but I can’t wait to see. If I’m wrong please remove all morels (first) and any persons (second) I think I heard a whistle blowing.redfred:
In light of your demonstration above of discriminating taste and as you also know "where the B&O railroad runs, I've decided, in my great magnanimity, to give you directions to my new found "Morel Honey Hole" along the B & O railroad tracks.

Mahjong is now an everywhere-available computer & smartphone application.
There is a software version that allows you to replace the traditional oriental tiles with photos of your choosing. I collected my best Wild Mushroom & Morel photos from over 15 years and created this enjoyable version where you match the wild mushroom picture instead of the traditional tiles.
It gives me pleasure to go Mushroom Hunting in the middle of winter, sitting in my office, at home, ha!
I'm starting to collect additional pics and may try to create -- perhaps -- a Morels-Only Mahjong version. I believe that would be even more difficult because there would not be as great a visual difference among the pics.
If I recall correctly it takes 35 different pics to create a basic set. Each pic appears 4 times. So, above you can see that the beautiful Red Reishi and Lions Mane show 4 times on opening. That's rare and most have to be successively uncovered by removing matched pairs from on top first.
With this layout version shown, I have about a 400 game record record of only getting them all matched & removed about 10% of the time!! Ha!
SB, here I thought you were using that saw to cut or damage special trees for next years bounty! I've done that to a select few apple trees and it works.Redfred -- Oh, What the heck! If I don't tell 'ya what the saw's for, I know you'll lose sleep over it. So, here's the story. (I don't want ya callin me at 4 in the morning because you can't sleep!)
It was/is a nice pruning saw and someone left it in the woods (on the King's property) that the RR runs through. It was likely left by someone sneaking into the King's property to set up a deer stand. . . . best I could surmise. Although, kids use the King's property too . . . building dirt bike jumps, tree houses, etc. episodically, over the years. [king's property = any large, institutionally owned woods or orphaned, anonymous investor-syndicate owned woods waiting the housing development builders saw].
Happy Hunting, everyone!
