  1. She started talking to her hairdresser and next thing she knew her kids were canning squirrels!

    Wow, what a great idea. I'd love it.

    I have actually taken my young son, at times, with me to get my hair weaved and it can be very tough. If he was helping out on a farm, learning canning, etc., what a great thing!

    Actually, because his grandparents are retired farmers, he learns all that stuff anyway.

    I'd hire that hairdresser today if I could. :-)

    I can too..... But draw a line at canned rodents.

    Neither of my yards have been large enough to have a vegetable garden. At my old house, I had a "fruitful" plum tree (bwahahaha, I crack myself up) and canned plum jam. Now, I can tomatoes when I am able to buy them cheapo at the farmer's market, but that's it. Under no circumstances, ever, would I can any type of meat. I don't wanna.

    That vegetable soup recipe looks pretty good... will have to try it (at much smaller proportions).

    I don't know why y'all are such picky eaters.

    Rodents taste good if you cook 'em properly and sautee in mustard and onions with a dash of hot sauce

    Yeah and I'd rather have them in a can than spreading disease in the woods.

    Ewww. If they have a disease they'd be spreading in the woods, I certainly don't want them sitting in a vinegar solution in my pantry. I think I may be ill....

    I got jumped by a bunch of chipmunks once...they have a colony on the beach in Pacific Grove (near Monterey in CA) and I knelt down to tie my shoe. I think they thought I had food and like, eight million of them started climbing all over me. I got all scratched up. Now I admire squirrels and the like from afar...

    OMG, that is creepier than my chipmunk story. Last Feb., I was at the World War II Memorial in D.C., and like you kneeled down to tie my shoe. Two chipmunks started climbing up my leg. I shook them off and was spooked the rest of the day. *Shudder*

    That reminds me of this summer I was at the park with my daughter when this chipmunk just runs up out of nowhere and runs smack dab into my foot then runs off again...Chimpmunks must be half blind or something lol
