Another year of dirt

Yes, I know, it's been an ETERNITY since I last blogged about the joys of dirt collecting. And actually, one would think that this post should refer to some sample of great stuff that I have been given, and collected since my last post. Truth be told...I am a little gun shy about handling any of my samples. After all, it was a year ago this week that I picked up a fungus from one of my dirt samples that ended up landing me in bed for numerous weeks. PCP was the official title of my illness, and at the time, I was told that I should not handle any of my samples without a mask and gloves. Fast forward to today...

The girls decided that this would be the PERFECT gift for my birthday this past week...and I couldn't agree more. I also got some emails from great friends telling me I have lots of samples coming my way. WOO HOO! So, it sounds like I have lots of blogging in my near future. Good thing too, the Utah winters are just around the corner. UGH.
