I am away but have pre-scheduled posts to show you. While traveling, I can read your comments but I will not have much computer access to respond to your comments or to leave my own comments on your blogs.

Beautiful photo, Jack! I love the colours and mood of it.

I guess they just don't make 'em like they used to. A nice way to remember someone.

Sharon said...

An acomplished man.

He looks to be placed outside the fence of the cemetery! Any reason?

Jack said...

This is not his gravestone. It is an old plaque to honor Jonathan Edwards. His gravestone is elsewhere in the graveyard.

What a lovely plaque to honor this famous gentleman. Enjoy your holiday.

Randy said...

Very nice indeed. Enjoy your vacation!

Oh MY!!!! How I had to WORK to make "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God" come alive for my students. Next time tip your hat to Mr. Jonathan Edwards for me!!

Very nice photograph. I won't say anything about Edwards, 'cause he was not a nice man at all, and, in my opinion, did one heck of a lot of damage in our country. Oops. Well, I'll quit now.
