The gods were kind to Intrepid Wanderer this afternoon. In about an hour, two rabbits and a small rattlesnake were cooking on my stove. I ate the organ meats of all three, plus the snake meat, for dinner, saving the rabbit meat for the next couple of days. I was able to chew the rib bones of the rattler, which allowed me to get far more of the meat than I would have had the patience for if I'd had to pick out all the bones.

I'm really liking the sumac juice, mixed about half-and-half with the cider. Plus it's keeping me more sober than I would be if I were imbibing the homebrew straight.

I tried a cholla blossom the other day. It has a taste similar to that of mustard greens, pleasant but not at all sweet.
