Cranes of a Different Color

I lost my way among the fall foliage and Farm/Art DTour last week. Although I didn't pour over maps and color code them with a pile of markers (this time), I did part with $5 bucks for the official map which I got at Viking Village Foods in Reedsburg, possibly another performance piece.

Yes, indeedy, those are two people dressed as whooping cranes

I took these Saturday which was only partly gloomy. These whooping crane women made it a whole lot sunnier.

La la la la la, daaaancing

Dance like you're dressed like a whooping crane and everyone is watching

Huh?

Hoping there's a coffee break coming up soon

Starts the sping in Necedah, winters in Florida

I half expected them to start smoking. Cigarettes, although they were moving around pretty quickly

Time to migrate the hells outta here
This guy got in more shots than the performers.

    1. It was a hoot or a whoop or something. Just about everyone left with a smile on their face and it was loaded with crane facts.

    2. That's if this place in town still has open mic the first Friday in December. Doesn't matter, I'll find an open mic somewhere in December. That's one of the things I'm giving myself to do for my 65th birthday. he he.

    3. Are you singing or doing stand-up?

    4. Don't know yet. Definitely not singing unless I turn it into stand-up. Details to come, as they formulate.

    5. You gotta get the hubster to record it, whatever you do. I got up and sang a Commander Cody song with my roommate at a bar once. Funny, I didn't realize I knew the words. Maybe I didn't and reality is different from what I remember. A whole lotta things that I never done but I never ain't had too much fun...

  5. What a fun event--complete with cane hands...lol Someday I'd like to witness a real whooping crane migration. They land in SW, Colorado and then fly on to Kearney, Nebraska every spring.

    1. We get the same sandhill cranes every year, well I guess it's the same mates but there are always two crane kids with them. I'd like to be a GoPro on them.

  7. Oh this made me laugh!! I wonder if those big cranes are going to go South .. I'll look for them at Upriver when we get there (at our 'trailer park' where we sometimes spot the smaller version of snadhills 0.

    1. I think they both need a break after repeated shows in a chilly field (:. These were whooping cranes, but keep an eye out for my neighbors, they sandhills and with the radical dip in temps maybe they've left. It's about that time, isn't it?

  8. Sounds like a fun event - cranes are beautiful!

  10. That's weird, great pictures-trees are turning here too.

  11. well that was different! Can't say as whooping cranes were ever on my radar, but you know I love a flamingo, so big birds of a feather! Was there a song to go with the mating dance? "Whoop! there it is?" LeeAnna

    1. There were whooping crane noises so I suppose it was a song, LA. Ha, there it is all right. Hilarious but a bit chilly. I'm more of a sandhill crane kinda girl considering our crane family neighbors.

  12. Hi Jeanna, this has to be one of the funniest things ever! It's not as if there were school children to watch the display, all I can see are adults. How the nesting stork kept a straight face I don't know, and the resemblance is uncanny.

    Thank you for making me laugh and linking up with #keepingitreal

    1. Thanks, Deb. I don't recall seeing many kids there, lol. I saw some snickers (not the candy but yum) under those masks. It was literally a hoot.
