I’ve been absent from WordPressWorld for several days. For part of the time I’ve been out in central Nebraska with the Sandhill cranes. What a sight to see! Half a million of them stop in Nebraska on their way from Mexico to Canada for the summer.

I hope you’ve all had a great week, and I’m sorry I haven’t been very faithful to keep up with all the haps in your corner of the blogosphere. After next week, I hope to be more present!
Thank you for bringing Colonel Brandon and Professor Snape to life.

Busy day here in the cornfields. I have to bake cookies tonight, and as I was pulling out all of my stuff, I remembered I hadn’t done my black and white challenge. So, the cutters are serving multiple purposes. I will say, based on past experience and my woeful lack of cooking skills, that these pictures will look better than the cookies will look or taste.
Ok. Before I get my Becky Homecky on and go bake with the teenagers, I nominate the creative and hilarious Justine from http://eclecticoddsnsods.com to join in the posting-of-a-black-and-white-photo-each-day-for-five-days.
One of the many frequent flying scientists I know (http://musingsofafrequentflyingscientist.com) invited me to participate in a black & white photo-a-day-for-five-days challenge. I’m supposed to nominate someone each day I participate. Today I nominate http://applehillcottage.org to join with me in posting a b&w photo each day for five days.
My submission today was a happy accident. While wandering around the neighboring county, I came across this railroad bridge. It’s less than 10 miles from my house, but I’d never seen it before.
