I'm working on writing another article these days, and vaguely planning another couple. So if you were to see me sitting in front of the big window staring out vacantly for awhile, I'm actually working hard. I usually spend a lot of 'mental time' thinking things out before setting fingers to keyboard. This one is a second article on geology in the valley. A friend thought so well of my last newsletter article that he recommended to the Bruce Trail Conservancy that they publish it in their magazine, in preparation for the next annual meeting which will be held here in the valley next fall. I'll have to share it with you sometime.
I also brightened up all these pictures except the first one. That's one thing you get used to quickly when shooting pictures in a snowy landscape. The camera automatically tries to damp down the exposure, but this usually leaves pictures of snow looking a little too dark compared to what I actually see.
Very sorry to read last night that George, of Our Awesome Travels has passed away. He learned of his cancer just this October and moved into the hospice in Stratford in late fall. He or Suzie kept posting in his blog right up to the end, and you can find funeral arrangements there today. I was very impressed at how he kept being his cheerful self throughout this ordeal. Our thoughts are with Suzie and their family. We met George and Suzie three years ago; he is one of 4 Ontario RV bloggers who I've followed, heading south for the winter and back home each summer. George was a chef and you can access a long list of great simple recipes on his blog. Rest in peace George.
