: Hello NS!
: Yup, one of our hunters notified me that them wild ones taste like rabbits/// meaning the hunter eats wee bunnies, too!
: Well, the squirrels on my property are grayish brown, because I am out in almost-wilderness. These fellows have lived here for geerations, I am merely their care taker, and as I've said, lately, my Mighty Hunter Tiger, who cut his teeth on hunting and laying them at my doorstep in the morning as a present to his Mommy, began to leave them alone.
: These are quite bright animals, they really talk, frolick, and play with each other. There is a couple, one of the younger ones, who must really be in love with each other, God you should see their antics!!!!
: I know life is what it is, and I've said before I love salmon, steaks... lamb ....gyro form, done the real Turkish way... which means I eat those little babies frolicking on the green pastures. Though I eat far far less meat than I used to. For example, chickens too, are bright animals who know loyalty and affection. I raised many of them, some of them right from the minute they pecked their way into life through the eggshell, and when myt parents and I had dinner, our little babies would be on the table (I mean not all of them, only those few who for one reason or another did not have a Mama), itsy bitsy fur balls scurrying from one plate to the other, looking at the food with teensy heads cocked aside... one of them, Uzun Omer (Long aka Tall Omar) loved to crawl into Papa's sleeves, or fly up on his shoulder and then up to his half-moon bald, gleaming pate...
: Here I put the url, visit them and admire Papa's gleaming half moon top of the world....
: They were good people. I miss them. Sigh.
What a lovely tribute to your parents!!! I am sure they must be very proud of you...
