Squirrel Again

6 Feb

For supper tonight we will go to Mom M’s.  I am making dough for pizza; before church this morning I made sauce; last night the last bag of squirrels (Christmas present from my BIL) was boiled.  The meat from four of those squirrels went into the sauce for the pizza. (Shh, don’t tell Isaac!) Hawthorne loves the backbones, but I fear the little leg bones are too sharp so he does not get those.

The three flying squirrels in the basement got their cage cleaned to celebrate February.  What a messy bunch they are!  I removed about a gallon of detritus– half  emptied nut shells and corn pieces, dried up bread and wrinkled apple cores.  Of course, where were they to put it all?  Under and in and behind their bedding and box and sleeping sweater.

When I visited Mom’s yesterday there were six more giant grays out on the feeders.  Since I took the last of the Christmas squirrels Daren now feels he can shoot more.
