|Dennis Snapping a Russula- Jon Rapp|
So what is a foray? The Free Dictionary.com says:
|Bunch of Basket Cases|
- Russela mushroom stalks snap like chalk with a sound to match.
- Sniff every mushroom- don't taste.
- Walk through the woods like a beagle, eyes to the ground. They found four times as many as I did.
- Carry a basket to carefully store your collection. Yeah, it feels funny at first, but it works.

There is a lot to learn to even catch up with the newest members, but they never gave up on us. I doubt that I will ever become expert at identifying and naming most of the mushrooms- I struggle with remembering Barb's name some days- ("Just call me Sweety"). But if you enjoy a walk in the woods with like souls, MOMS may be for you.
