What In The World Is That?

Yesterday Annie and I took a spur-of-the-moment drive out in the country west of Sweet Haven.  We noted some changes in the scenery since we had last been out in that area (maybe 10 years ago).  We noted that the little Post Office - abandoned many years, with a old rusty bed and a dead cat on the bed had been refurbished, and someone was now living there.  There were a lot of changes like that - little things, something fixed up, something run down.  But then as we were heading back, we saw these guys in the far distance and dead-reckoned our way over for a closer look.
We wondered over these strange structures for quite a while and couldn't think of anything that they looked like they could to.  A friend who has lived in Sweet Haven for most of his life told me these were solar collectors that were supposed to boil water and run generators, and were very successful at separating the gullible investors from their money.

And finally, a little further on, two bald eagles in an old cottonwood tree.  This shot has been cropped and is a little shaky, but it was fun to see them, sitting in the winter sun and watching for a rabbit for dinner.
