Serendipitous Sight

Returning along the causeway from a Casco AG snacks run (potato chips, molasses cookies, popcorn, and a sugar donut [supply your own punch line]{no, I did not eat all of it in one sitting}) a bald eagle flew about 50 feet in the air in front of me.  I pulled the truck over to watch the eagle beat its wings northwest across the lake.  A magnificent, dramatic, solitary bird, the first bald eagle I have seen in a few years.  On a cold and very windy day devoted to grading papers and wiki projects by the warm glow of a computer screen, it was a treat.
