The only cookbook I've ever read (or even looked at, pretty much) was one of recipes you could make on long car trips where you could cook the food by its proximity to the engine.

I forget if there were any recipes for roadkill.

I love squirrels, but my parents HATED them. My dad kept a pellet rifle so he could shoot them in some vain attempt to keep them off their heavily treed property. I honestly don't know why he bothered, because other than digging up the occasional tulip bulb, I don't think they ever did any damage to the house.

Oh god! They’re gorgeous!
Their face looks different somehow to normal squirrels?

Looks like a white rat to me. I don't have a garden or extensive flower beds at my current place so I've had a truce for two years but I don't like them. Rats in a fancy suit imo.

Hey, Ellie-May, if you like the critters so damn much come to Japan and visit Squirrel Village where you can, wearing appropriately thickened gloves, hand feed dozens of them and then split having seen up close enough squirrels to last a lifetime.

Our friends have a website where they stream all the cameras in their back garden. Watching the squirrels on their beds, waking up in a morning, kissing, stretching, hugging, yawning and building families is one of the best parts of my day. There’s also the grim stuff though Like when ringtails pop into their nests and steal all their babies to eat and Mum Squirrel comes back going ‘what the fuck?’

There are black ones in DC - apparently a bunch were initially a gift from Canada for the National Zoo and they multiplied like crazy. The National Cathedral grounds are loaded with them.

I love our local squirrels, Secret and Squirrel Girl. They crack my daughter up and they don't really run away until you get really close. Visitors from S. America are fascinated by them, too.

Ace! I didn’t see that was a nut at first, and thought it was a really huge tongue :D

Yeah we have the black ones in NYC too although not up in Westchester County.
I'm sort of torn at times they are like rats, especially under a bird feeder. Then at other times they look cute and fun to watch chasing each other.
