Iain Schentunkel

Thursday, July 5th, 2007

A few weeks ago I made it up to Shell Lake, getting in a bit of fishing with the man known in our family as Ancient Uncle, and his dog Very. After we had caught a couple of small pike and one walleye, Ray and Very decided to go looking for mushrooms. Here’s a picture of what they found.

(Ray informed me that, following the lead of a nephew and niece who have changed their names lately, he plans to change both his first and last name. He likes the Scottish name Iain, and an obscure Dutch surname Schentunkel. At least the name Iain Schentunkel shouldn’t be hard to remember, at least if you say it fast enough)

UPDATE: Realizing that on a small monitor it might be hard to see what’s in that picture, here’s another.
