Painting Party was the height of fall during my college years. The night before the big Halloween party we all got together to help decorate the place. Hang the butcher paper, pour the sawdust, configure the haunted maze. And we always got crazy. Bags of stuff from foreign lands: Columbia, Jamaica, and Holland.

But the shrooms were American grown-- Iowa.

Chuck was our source for them. It took planning to get the order in with plenty of time for the delivery to arrive just before Halloween. And not too much before, or we might spoil our appetite with premature consuming.
