~~ Friday’s Hunt v.4.14 -- "N" is for ...

Friday's Hunt for the week of October 6th:
(1) Starts with "N"; (2) Silhouette; and (3) Sky

(1) Starts with "N": Nebraska!!!  I was born in Nebraska and lived there until I was drafted into the Army.  This license plate was on Mom's 1974 Mustang II Ghia, now mine, (picture). I found the plate when I was cleaning out my 1950 Ford to sell (link, scroll down). 

The barn here early on was used for the draft horses that Dad used to farm with, pulling plows and other farm equipment, and wagons.  The horses were housed on the near side to us, West.  

About two/thirds of the other half (East) was stations for the milking cows to eat in while we milked them.  The remaining with the small door on the southeast corner was used for the small calves.  It was in there that we taught them to drink from a bucket.

I was born on this Nebraska farm, in the house that frequents my blogs (link)

(2) Silhouette: My winter tree is silhouetted against the sky, hovering over the ducks swimming in the Potomac.

(3) Sky: A cold cloudy day in Washington D.C.

It rained later that day

I love to be flying high in the sky, above the clouds.  A pretty sunset over the clouds.
Texas skies with clouds lend themselves to prettiest sunsets in the U.S. 
The type of clouds determine the sunset.  These wispy clouds 'just floated'.

Finally, Texas usually brags of the bluest sky.  This may be true, the sky is sooo regal looking with the Texas Blue.  My camera doesn't do justice to blue skies.
