The Slice

Dining on a harbinger of spring

I have been hearing from Slice readers today about all the robins in our area right now.

Reminded me of a Slice item from Sept. 13, 2003.

Here it is:

Take my advice.

Never assume that you've heard all of your family's stories countless times.

Ask questions. Ask, ask, ask.

Recently, on my father's birthday, I learned that my great-grandmother's cat once presented her with a nice juicy robin. The old Vermont woman proceeded to dress it, cook it and share it with the feline. All of this horrified one of my father's aunts.

So ask around. Do you have any bird eaters in your family tree?
