Editor's Note

Every now and then I get a reminder that my dad reads my blog. Here's his email to me today:

Dolly,

"My Forray into Photography"

Here is Webster’s dictionary definition of forray


Forray

\For"ray\ (? or ?), v. t. [OE. forrayen. See Foray.] To foray; to ravage; to pillage.

So are you foraying, forying or hurrying to foto Murray? Are you ravaging or pillaging?

My real question is; what is the correct spelling? I always thought it was foray. Anyway Dollay, have a great day and I love you any way and so does mommay as does Murray. So you are very luckay eh? J

Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary is rather out of date—its copyright has expired, which is why it's used on Dictionary.com. A few other dictionaries give definitions like "an initial venture" and "a brief excursion or attempt especially outside one's accustomed sphere." All the other dictionaries have only the spelling with one r, though, which surprises me.

Your dad is my favorite father in law.

That's hilarious. My dad, while tech-savvy, never reads my blog or sends me e-mails that don't contain pictures of their dogs. Jealous.

I do quite heart your father. I miss your family. Move back to Canada.

I would have gone with "foray," but I decided not to mention it, or the other two egregious grammatical errors you made in that post. I just assumed you were in a big hurry to post your pillaging photos.

I also heart your dad.
