The Critically Endangered Whooping Crane
Will Fall Ever Arrive In Florida?
After a much needed break, I am back, refreshed and ready to begin anew~
The Calendar says that Fall has officially begun, but it will be over 90 degrees
here in Central Florida again today, so where is our Fall?
Today's posting concerns a very eagerly awaited and always hopeful Annual Event,
the Whooping Cranes are finally on their way back down to Florida.
This incredible web site is dedicated to the Annual Whooping Crane Migration:

Going home for me has always been a double edged sword, I love my family and my childhood home, but usually, something unexpected happens to make me wish that I had gone somewhere else.
Not this time.
This time, the reunion was basically flawless family good times and absolutely nothing negative happened to cause me to yearn for the Keys or anywhere but home.
It seems that as you get older, everything falls into place, more or less.
The really silly things that you worried about in the past, just don't seem quite as important and the terribly important things, people, are brought sharply into focus.
This trip redefined my relationships with those I grew up with and made me truly appreciate the ones who had never been in the forefront until now.
