Flying for Freedom

Sometimes a simple picture, like this one of two sandhills flying over my head, can convey a lot,.  But, what does it convey?  To me, it means that I was getting dizzy from leaning backwards and shooting straight up over my head.  LOL!  Seriously though, to me it conveys freedom, joy, simplicity, and an easiness about life. What does it mean to you?   If you like reading this blog, please leave comments once in awhile.  Otherwise, I don't know if anyone ever reads it.  Thanks and have a wonderful day!

Little Duckie Duddle

 Do you remember this from your childhood?  "Little Duckie Duddle went wading in a puddle, went wading in a puddle quite small.  Said he it does not matter how much I splash & splatter; I'm only a duckie, after all."

Sunrise Over Nebraska Sandhills

This was my favorite morning while we were in Nebraska.  The sky was absolutely beautiful as the sun came up.  It provided a nice background for the sandhill cranes that were hanging out on the sandbars before flying to the cornfields for a day of eating.  Unfortunately, the wind was blowing the other way and, between that and the noisy Canadian geese and snow geese down river, we couldn't hear them talking.  On the previous day, however, we had been in a blind and heard them talking quite well.  They're very noisy, but we enjoyed it.  Have a great week-end.  If you enjoy this blog, please leave a comment once in awhile, so I'll know that someone actually reads it.  Thanks!

Silhouettes Against the Morning Sky

The Nebraska sandhills are silhouetted against the morning sky as they wait for sunrise to migrate to the cornfields for the day.
