If I ever am missing, I hope my family can find a photo of me wearing just as nice of a shirt.

They were just "wonderin' around behind the little animals"...

As my mom might have said, "you're not leaving this house looking like that!"

The media haven't even explained whether they found enough mushrooms (or other food) to avoid starvation symptoms.

Three mushroom pickers took refuge in a hollowed out tree after getting lost in an Oregon forest, fighting wintry chills for six days and drinking water from streams until a helicopter pilot spotted them.
Belinda and Daniel Conne, along with their 25-year-old son, Michael, managed to reach a clearing Saturday, where the searchers saw them several miles outside the community of Gold Beach, roughly 330 miles south-southwest of Portland.
Hmmm, sounds like this could be a good plot for an upcoming Portlandia skit. Just sayin...

Nope, she's saying 'I am so lucky to have a guy who does all these things to me."

Perhaps the shirt helped them occupy their time in the hollow log.
