Fungusy Selfies On Sunday.

Petcretary and I, MJF, were out in the back woodsy area of our yard...when we spied this huge fungus!















It sure kind of looks like a exotic flower, OMD!!!







I decided it was a good spot to make a selfie, BOL!



  Pipo was just enjoying a sunny place and felt he was not going to let himself be a selfie...because he did not want to be interrupted...so ....

this is a sort of not looking too selfie-ish, MOL!


We made lots of picture cards and mementos this past week:
There were some spawsial occasions:
'JJ'



Georgia

Julie



                                            The above three kitties are from Mickey's Musings

Happy Birthday Sid-Henry!



Percy Turns 13

There were some sad times too...sheesh, there sure are a lot of new angels lately. We think its about time that a 'no vacancy' sign is placed at the  doors to the Rainbow Bridge.
Anypaws, here are the mementos we sent to the furmilies of these precious new angels.

Andrea Kenner's precious boy, Beckham, journeyed to the bridge on July 7. Beckham would have turned 14 this summer and has lived with Andrea since he was a kitten. He can be found here: BECKHAM



Angel Gertrude, from Margs Animals


Angel Ellie, From Friends FurEver; to whom this blog hop is dedicated



If you want to snag any of those mementos/cards; feel free to do so.

We are hopping in this Sunday Selfie Blog hop, dedicated to Angel Ellie, with The Kitties Blue

  1. It has indeed been a sad week, and many friends moved over. Looks like you have all found your own right places to be for your selfies, sort of selfies. Me, I think I'm with Pipo on my location, though if that was a Nip fungus then I'd be happy to be out in the woods too. MOL

    1. That fungus is this...we think:

      Scientific name: Laetiporus
      Rank: Genus
      Higher classification: Polyporaceae
      Order: Polyporales
      Family: Fomitopsidaceae
      Class: Agaricomycetes


      Aka: Chicken of the Forest Fungus

      Hugs to you and your furmily, we know how much it hurts when you have to say goodbye.

    1. Thanks, Charlie.

      There were some little black fairy-flies on it...but after a rain storm and really warm weather, it tuned to mush...and there were clouds of fungus gnats...not the dwelling place of fairies I think, BOL!

      Its known as Chicken of the Forest Fungus, and this it the science of it:

      Scientific name: Laetiporus
      Rank: Genus
      Higher classification: Polyporaceae
      Order: Polyporales
      Family: Fomitopsidaceae
      Class: Agaricomycetes

  21. There's a fungus among us! MOL! We just had to say that! That is one interesting looking fungus. We've never seen anything like that. Great selfies, even if Pipo didn't want to wake up.

  22. Never eat a fungus that doesnt come from a grocery store!

    Separately, there have been too many friends leaving for the Bridge lately. Some months are hard...

    1. Though we researched this thing and its called a Chicken of the Forest fungus...and when properly cooked it is edible...tastes like chicken...but we are not going to take any chances...
      Here is the science about this thing:

      Scientific name: Laetiporus
      Rank: Genus
      Higher classification: Polyporaceae
      Order: Polyporales
      Family: Fomitopsidaceae
      Class: Agaricomycetes

      They need to lock the doors there and get rid of the key. Aren't they full enough yet??? Sheesh:(

  23. This week's cards are so beautiful, especially that birthday card for Siddhartha Henry. We love how you included the chipmunks. We agree, a no vacancy sign at the RB is in order. Beckham was Mau's friend at Cat Scouts. Mom would like to know if she can post your card there. Beckham hadn't been at Scouts in a while, but everyone has been leaving nice messages for his family. Sorry Pipo didn't want to take a selfie today. MJF, you certainly look adorable in your photos. We had some of those fungi in our yard last year, but we haven't seen any this year. They are super cool looking. Thanks so much for hopping. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy
