Camera Critters: Beautiful Cranes

These two beautiful cranes were hanging out in front of the building I was visiting today.
They are so cute!  I said hi to them (yes, I talk to animals. Call me crazy if you want).
The tallest one answered back and kept "talking" to me.
  I am sure it was telling me to keep my distance and to be quiet!  LOL

eCard of the Week #364: Just Saying

I end a lot of my sentences with "just saying"
because ending the sentence with "dumb ass"
would probably be considered offensive.
