Double Ugly

Butch found this very ugly, very stinky mushroom in the grass at the Trailrider RV Park in Yale Iowa.
He placed it on the picnic table so I could get a shot of it. He finally had to dispose of it because the smell was so atrocious!
It smelled like very old urine.

We are now at Lake Anita State Park in site #104. Yesterday we went to Atlantic where Butch got a blood draw for his latest PSA test. We will know the result next Thursday but expect it to be zero. Then we both had eye exams and I will be getting new lenses as my vision had decreased. Otherwise we came through that little test unscathed. Then we went to our favorite Chinese restaurant in Atlantic. The China Hut is owned by a chinese family and the quality of the food exceeds others I have been to. Tonight we plan to visit one of the better "up North" Mexican restaurants.
Lots of stuff to catch up on!! Some things just have to wait till you are in the right area.
Till next time...

From Sharon at Snow Mountain Ranch

Hey guys,
What are you doing? Our little trailer is lonely up on this hill. Howard is still here but will leave on Sunday and then it will be Don and Shirley and then they leave next week and then Mike and I until the 1st. It's awesome here right now. Leaves on the aspens are gorgeous, the elk bugling is fun to hear and see and it's COLD!!!! Got down in the 20's a couple of times, snow up on the peaks yesterday and still up on Trail Ridge today. Most of the time it's in the 30's at night and 60's during the day. Mike and I played Grand Lake and Grand Elk and now we'll play Grand Lake again this week. Man Butch, I wish you were here to play with him so I didn't have to!!!! When we went to Grand Lake we had to play with two other men and I for sure didn't like that one bit!!!!
Some guy that was camping here last week shot a 12 point elk with a bow. He's been coming for five years and this is the first time he got one but I didn't like it. He blew a whistle that sounded like a cow calling and he said that bull came charging out of the woods. Poor fellow, just thought he found him a girlfriend and they killed him. You can tell I'm not a hunter!!!!
Well, just wanted to say hello and that we miss you guys! Hope you're having a good time!
Sharon and Mike
It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us the freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who gives us the freedom to demonstrate. It is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag. "
