The CowMan and the Bag Lady went to check on the state of their summer pasture last evening. It has been terribly dry here, and they wanted to see how their cows were faring. Whilst they were there, they saw a pair of Sandhill Cranes:
They are very difficult to see in this photo, because they were quite a distance away. She shot this photo at maximum zoom, which (obviously) didn't work very well. The Bag Lady tried to take a little video of them, and although it is terribly blurry, she wants to share it with you so you can hear them calling to each other (turn up your volume a little):
A little later on, the Bag Lady happened upon this:
So ends the "nature-walk" portion of this post.
The Bag Lady had a crazy idea the other night, while she was lying, wide-eyed and sleep-deprived in her bed. She came up with an idea for a game, and wondered if any of you would like to play. She wants to write a "novelette", but never seems to have enough time. She was thinking if she started with a couple of paragraphs, then sent it on to someone else, who would add a couple of paragraphs, then send it on to someone else to add a couple of paragraphs, and so on and so on, when everyone who was interested in playing had their turn, she would publish it on her blog (or all the participants can publish it at the same time). Do you think she is crazy? Needs more sleep?
What do you all think? If anyone is interested in playing along, email the Bag Lady at the address in the sidebar.
Have a good weekend!
