Okay Molly, down here we call that Stirrin' Up the Fire Ant Nest. Here we go on the nasty little rodents again! Kolleen, have you ever SEEN a Texas Longhorn??? If you think I'm gonna put my precious face close enough to those weapons to plant a kiss on it's dear little nose, you're gonna hafta think just ONE MORE TIME. I happen to LIKE having two fully functional eyeballs. These aren't your sweet little Jersey milking cows we're talking about here. I agree, the babies are very cute and make ya say, "Awwwww," but Momma is never far away! And, honestly, I like the smell of livestock, too. It's an honest and earthy smell. I'd love to have you in the garden with me, too. After breakfast we could jump right into the harvesting, canning, drying, freezing, preserving . . . Many hands make light work, you know! I can understand your mom's aversion. My grandmother grew up on a farm under the same severe conditions. She was also the youngest of 10 children, so being low kid on the totem pole, of course all the most un-favorite chores became hers. She couldn't wait to get off the farm, and absolutely loathed going back. (They never did get indoor plumbing, and those trips to the outhouse in the middle of the night especially ticked her off! As far as she was concerned, they were uncivilized savages.) Funny how life goes around, isn't it? Of course, I would probably be considerably less fond of living here without my luxurious "spa" bathroom!!! sami

Hey Farm Gal, Wellll.........let me think twice about the canning, freezing, WORK part of the deal. I just want to be there and LOOK at it all. Squirrel sister has always been in love with animals.....but when we were kids it was kittens. When she grew up, got married and DIDN'T have kids, she got a little "off" about which birds or animals were considered pets. She had a pidgeon for about 15 years. Then he husband found the baby squirrels and brought them in. I have no objection to squirrels, per se. It was her attitude that was disgusting. Like "love me, let me bring my squirrels into your house, and if you don't, I will anyway, and tell you you're ignorant if you don't like it." Molly didn't say anthing to stir anything up, so not to worry. I do understand her joke. She's known this story for a while now......what...??? about 3 years? It's all cool. Have a great day, and keep your eyeballs away from those Longhorns. ~ k ~

Sorry. I didn't mean to Stir Up the Ant's Nest. I was only joking. I read the whole thread, and did understand the *poke*. Guess I put my foot in it again.

rooster stew, anyone?
actually, tho, it sounds to me like the sister is more offensive than the squirrels, themselves. bringing her "pets" along after having been told NOT to. sister stew, anyone? (i'm trying to get in trouble again. the devil made me do it . . .)

Oh Dear, are you trying to "fowl" things up here? ~ k ~

Can't speak for Oh Dear's motives, tho! Stirrin' Up That Fire Ant Nest, OD?

I'm now suspecting some "fowl play" in this case.

Oh No, FarmGal, Now you've been "hooked" on this topic. BTW, is a "Squirrelier" like a Rodent "Sommelier"? If so, is that a Rodent who does wine tasting, or a wine taster who does rodent tasting? Example, Big Rodent dressed in Tuxedo and white gloves comes to your table and recommends a "Fine Merlot" to have with your dinner, Or is it a Very Nicely dressed Human who comes out and recommends a "Fine, woodsy, somewhat earthy light wine, that is " curious" in the bouquet, a bit " interesting" in the texture, and somewhat " fuzzy" in the finish. I bet they have those kinds of places way out in the country, SOMEWHERE.....in some country. Oh let me guess.......maybe Italy???
