s is for

















sandhill crane.
i knew something was up when my dogs were going crazy at the windows.
3 huge sandhill cranes in the the yard. man those things are loud, like turkeys on steroids!
down on the ranch, we have seen larger groups of them. when they take off and fly, it is positively prehistoric.
click on this link and you can hear their calls.

Yummy sweater. I always loved that pattern but was never up to the challenge. Good for you and I can not wait to see it at Madrona. As for your cranes...they could kick our bald eagles' ass, I'm pretty sure. wow.

That looks more like a golf course than someone's yard. I'm so green. Lucky, beautiful Marina to have such a lovely place to live!
