A little clarification is is order here, while fried squirrel is the ultimate goal and heads up my list of all time favorite dinners, i was referring to the fresh dead, in your game bag smell of the little fury critter’s them selves!
Im sure im as strange as anyone you’ll ever know but there are some smells that i can relate to, remember, or quite possibly just imagine long after exposure to them.
Squirrels is one of them another is the engine room of a sternwheeler
(the Delta Queen) or a cup full of West Texas Crude, those sourdough buckwheat pancakes my Granny use to make etc.

then there’s that list you wish you didn’t remember such as the Dead shunk’s in the middle of the road etc.😂

It’s appropriate to be going over all these favorite smell’s this morning as i’m headed to Men’s Prayer Breakfast in a short bit. Maybe someone will have rounded up a mess of Squirrel since last week. If not that’s fine too, gathering together with the Saints has a sweet aroma of it’s own also!

Happy Birthday Thomas ! :celebrate:celebrate:celebrate:clap:thumbsup Just a little bragging for my youngest grandson... He turned 5 7 weeks ago and is in pre- kindergarden with 10 classmates. Mom and Dad had a parent conference yesterday to be informed of how he is doing. Teacher was just gushing his praises.... evidently he is the smartest kid in class and very charismatic as he is the class leader as all of the other kids always look for his direction even after the teacher has told what the class was to do. If he does the task everyone does it, if not they will not do it too. The class kids listed to his every word and does what he tells them what to do. Future President of the US ? :thumbsup :caf

My grandparents used to host a game dinner every New Years day, and squirrel was my favorite of all the animals that my Grandpa provided (which included ducks, venison, various game birds, rabbits, and more). I think my Grandma baked them, but can't recall for sure.

When it comes to the smell of freshly killed animals, I do retain that fond memory, although not of squirrels specifically. The feel and smell of their fur, much like a domestic cat or dog but infinitely more the scent of the wild places these critters had spent their days attached to them.

It’s spring break, our 13 year old granddaughter went to Florida with a friend and her family for a Christian retreat. She will be back Friday. Our DD and DSIL are in Waco with no plans beyond sleep, rest and do as much of nothing as possible. They will be back Friday. The two little girls, age 4 and 6, are with us and we are having fun.
