OK, it seems as if I have solved the first problem, I think I will continue with the posting. We have lived in the same house for 31 years. I still look out my front window and think how beautiful the view is.
The picture of the sandhill cranes was taken in a neighbors field last week. The cranes fly through our area twice a year, around Thanksgiving and then Spring. I love to hear them and watch them fly over. They roost on the neighbors farm next to ours last weekend I walked out close to them and there must have beem 500 birds. Impressive sight to watch them take flight.
