How to use creek in a sentence?

  1. Tony Hale in Veep '':

    [ I'm ] trying to catch up on movies, something about this time brings you awareness of things you've put off. I wanted to introduce them to' Schitt's Creek.' My wife wanted to introduce us to' Gilmore Girls,' so we've been watching that. Each night someone picks what they want to watch. I can't believe today is five weeks since my daughter was out of school, it's been so challenging.

  2. Mike Farnworth:

    I can’t believe I’ve ever seen or heard of such a despicable, disgusting sense of entitlement and lack of a moral compass. [Referring to a top casino executive and his wife who flew from Vancouver by commercial flight and chartered aircraft 2200 km to Beaver Creek, ignoring mandatory quarantine requirements, to jump the queue for COVID-19 vaccinations. Beaver Creek is a First Nations community of 80, given vaccine priority because of its remoteness near the Alaska border.]

  3. Jim Kenney:

    Words alone can not express the outrage, hurt, and sadness that all of us feel. Dedicated, passionate, and driven -- Tiffany Fletcher was just doing Tiffany Fletcher job outside Mill Creek Rec Center in West Philadelphia when -- in a brazen and unconscionable act of violence -- she was struck by crossfire in the middle of the day.

  4. Tom Sawyer:

    Then my Uncle Randy, who’s my dad’s twin brother, died just before last year’s bowhunt, so Dad and I just didn’t feel up to it last fall; the three of us had always done everything together. But this year we were ready. We were hunting this new property in Missouri, and the activity seemed to all be happening on this remote section of the farm, where some CRP met a creek. I went back there and tucked in to a patch of willows, right on the ground. I rattled and had four small bucks trot right in and never see me, so I liked the setup. A while later, a big doe came out in the grass—and right behind her was this giant. I had one long shot at him but it was windy and I passed it. He was walking away when I rattled once, and he ignored it. Then I looked up to the sky and said, ‘Bring him in to me Uncle Randy.’ I hit the horns hard, and the buck spun around and walked right in for the shot. The biggest buck I’d shot before him was 140 inches, and I like to think my uncle had a big part of this special buck.

  5. South African golfer Charl Schwartzel:

    I am hugely disappointed to be missing out on the SA Open, everybody knows how keen I am to win our national Open and, having come so close the last couple of years and following my good form at Leopard Creek, I was really looking forward to contending at Glendower.
