It's that time again. We are surrounded by thousands of cranes in our fields, neighboring fields, and on the North Platte River that borders our farm. They are only here from February to early April and we enjoy every day of their visitation. I'll often open the windows when they are doing their aerials in the sky just to hear their sound or even better, I will step out just to observe and listen. What a marvelous joy of nature! I took these two movies with my digital camera. The second one was on a recent walk down along our cornfield and pasture. The cranes heard our approach and many of them soared into the sky.
I'm a person who doesn't focus on my age until I'm offered a senior discount because of my naturally beautiful graying hair. Not thinking of my age, I have to remind myself that my two children are independent adults now. I cry easily for sad or happy reasons-I don't like saying goodbye to friends or family after having special times together.
