Default Found some yucky stuff

I demo'd our aged patio cover which was made of poorly finished rough sawn doug fir and was 35 years old. Inside one of the posts was a moist yellowy spongey substance. What is this stuff, some kind of mold or decay? Sorry to gross you out

Probably some kind of mold, may well be harmless.
