Rednecks

Miles insisted that he help my dad shoot a squirrel and then dad said we never shoot anything unless we eat it, so are you sure you want to eat a squirrel? And Miles said yes and then the squirrel got shot and skinned and then pretty soon it smelled so good.
Dad ate it. Miles did not.

"Daddy's Hands" (the first picture)

I was so grossed out, with the whole thing especially the squirrel in the fry pan, and I am like, Man --why does mom let him do that?! And then Marc pointed out to me that that is my countertop in the picture and then I looked at the other pictures and became aware that, that is my fry pan. I find this very disturbing. Was I at work Dad when you were skinning a squirrel on my countertop? and cooking it in my fry pan? Yuuuuccckkkkk! This aint no double wide trailer!

I was offended at myself that I thought it smelled SO GOOD.

Keri, you ate eggs the next day out of that pan!

Daddy's hands... (first picture) soft and kind when I was cryin'

Daddy's hands...hard as steel when i'd done wrong.

daddy's hands weren't always gentle but i've come to understand...

there were always SKINNED ANIMALS in daddy's hands

mom said...

oh and by the way.......AJ and OJ.......both guilty. How do you justify AJ, Kady, answer me that?

kadyhexum said...

do you mean Angelina Jolie? Because she's pretty, of course.

And what does she have to do with Orange Juice? haha

I know Kady, my first thought was, I need to throw that pan out, but it is too late, I have used it many many times. I just really hope mom did not throw some left over squirrel bits into the eggs the next morning, you know how she tries to use up everything in the fridge and make like an eggs extravaganza

Remember when Mom would make cold tuna macaroni salad only she didn't use tuna she used rabbit, and we would go Uuuh mom this is rabbitt and she would say no it's not it's tuna, now eat it. And like we were going to believe it because, rabbitt just does not taste like tuna,

Man no wonder I have trust issues.

That is typicle Miles not eating it after he said he would. I am surprised grandpa did not force him to eat it. When we shoot squirrels we feed them to our dog. You just hear a few crunching noises and see the occasional foot or intestine hanging out and then she swallows it. It is extremely interesting to watch.

I remember mom trying to convince us that rabbit was chicken, and using almost identical words, "It is not rabbit, it's chicken, shut up and eat it." And we'd be like (in our heads, of course, because we didn't talk back - at least out loud), "ok, this is red and stringy, not white & yummy, and by the way, where's Fluffy?"

Keri, that comment about the double-wide is VERY funny. Good one.

I'm gonna have to make sure Jake reads this because a few weeks ago we had a conversation about how sqirrel would taste like. He of course could not understand why I was so very appalled at the thought. See I'm not crazy!

If my dog business does not work out, do you think I should try stand up comedy?

I was out in service with the CO's wife a few years back. Typically the CO that was in Intl Falls, would then go to Hutch and then would come to Blaine. However Campaina's (wrong spelling) went straight to Blaine from Intl Falls. Anyway she was telling me about a sister from the falls who had moved to the cities and so she was trying to get ahold of them and get them active again or something like that. She told me about their strange son who this and that and would do this and that and who can you believe shot squirrels in the back yard and ate them, she was sure this was a sign he was going to be a serial killer. I didn't speak up about the fact that that was my childhood and how currently David our son had about 4 squirrel carcases in the freezer soon to be sauted. nolingh is my word verif. (no lying)

prettiest sister said...

Were you letting him cook those in the house? Well, it is Dad'd bad influence that caused him to be a vermin killer. Love your verif word.

Kady, there are so many comments on this redneck heading, I think you are going to have to make a sepperate blog for it. Hey, a redneck blog!!

kadyhexum said...

I think Hanna's entry about deer boiling and skinning can go on the redneck blog too

You'allllllllll NUTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NUTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

a concerned squirrel said...

did he tell you where he keeps his nuts? If so, did you eat his nuts or are there some left. For I am just a simple squirrel with three legs missing as I have been in four traps set by you unkind humans. Yes my tail was in the last trap, it's all gone. But I need them nuts to survive till spring, when i will give myself up to the squirrel killer.
