Hi Dennis,
This latestet posting from you made me laugh and bring back memories..We get
puff balls here too in Aus, but certainly not the massive size you describe
and while I have never dreamed of eating them ,a favourite thing to do with
our little puff balls is to take a leap and land one's gumbooted foot on
them ...just to hear them pop...and to see how much smoke(spores) they can
emit...And Im not sorry to say I havent grown out of that childish
behaviour. And to be able to have such large one's to jump on as you do
would be great fun:)
Yes Im still a big kid at heart..sometimes..Bye for Now from Wendy Sargeant,
Victoria, Australia...
