David Crook is my brother, friend, mentor, protector, and a superb nature photographer. He is also a retired (sort of) pastor, and in mid-October he and his daughter, Cheryl Crook Burton, flew from their respective homes in Arizona and Washington State to participate in the wedding of family friend Megan Eyraud in Connecticut.
From there, he and Cheryl headed north to cover as much of New England as possible, also stopping at some of the communities where he pastored (this may not be an actual approved word, but it works) in earlier years. Now we get to benefit from his views of the changing colors of New England in 2016. There will be other posts with his photos.
DID YOU KNOW THAT when using the minus sign, you use a hyphen, not a dash. Word has all kinds of dashes that can pop up when you least expect them: em and em dashes, “named for the length of a typeface’s lower-case n and upper-case M respectively,” says Wikipedia.
Confused? Use the word “minus.” To indicate temperatures below zero, write “minus 10” or “5 below zero.”
Since my roots are in Washington State, it’s not unusual to get/see a lot of pictures during winter, when snow has its way…
My cousin, Doug Cruea, sent this picture of his yard. I can sit in my warm Arizona home and think that is beautiful. Which I would do even if I were walking through the snow. But it’s so cozy this way!
