#1 THE ORIGAMI CALENDAR CHALLENGE – MAD MUSHROOMDSC05938This origami project brought to mind the very first time mushrooms were introduced to my life. Bear in mind that while my mother was a great cook, I never ate a mushroom until I was in my very late teens when I ate in a Chinese restaurant with high school chums.  But I was introduced to mushrooms much earlier, thanks to Walt Disney’s Fantasia.fantasia-chinese-dance

So when I finished folding my mushroom, I added a few Disney touches to it.DSC05940

Somehow, he ended up looking more mad than Oriental. But he also resembles the mushroom photo posted last October that I posted on these pages.shrooms3 ©

I actually shot this photo in my backyard under the big maple tree.


I did pretty good with this one … actually, I got them all except the last one.

DSC05947 I have decided to stop posting any puzzle with details so small that you wouldn’t be able to see them clearly. Sometimes I have to use my magnifying lens to see them myself.

In lieu of the puzzle, I’m adding a few photos of Mlle. Renee, who like all kids in the world can get an entire day of play out of a cardboard box. I was encouraged to do this by the keepers of the Saint Louis Zoo, who regularly give large boxes to their charges as a special treat. Only I don’t spray perfume/spices on the boxes. I guess the scent of the mailman on them is enough stimulation for her .

  1. Renee gives new meaning to a dog who’s a “boxer.” Also, I didn’t get 2 and 4 until I saw your answers. Duh. I was just proud of knowing no. 5!
