We saw a pair of Sandhill Cranes in a hay field.
I am not sure what the bird was that was sitting on the hay bale. We usually don’t see Sandhill Cranes in the summertime. I have seen them in the spring and fall when they are migrating…but only one other year have I seem them in the summer.
Summer is advancing quickly. The temperatures at night are cool. 52 F or 11C eh. Quite cool for July night time temperatures.
The Fireweed is blooming.
We are getting company from Iowa this week, an old friend will spend sometime with us…I am not sure I can call him an old bachelor…he was married once upon a time and has a daughter and a grandson. I am certain he will show up in a tank of a vehicle…picture some old Cadillac with leather seats. Last time he was here whilst he was driving all over the area I could stretch out full length in the backseat and have a nap when I became bored with the men’s conversation.
The neighbors shared their company from Oklahoma this past week, we had several nights of meals together followed by a rousing card game called “Oh Hell.”
