Back to basics

Thanks to Anthony Gaff (garrmusic.com) for sharing this one with me. He saw it while out and about today and snapped the pic just for the blog.

As I said, we’re back to basics–both in terms of why Ray and I started this blog, and in grammatical terms. “Yours” is the possessive form, people. “Your’s” is–well, it’s wrong. It’s not even a word. It’s meaningless, to be blunt.

So–play the Indiana lottery if you want, but for heaven’s sake stop putting apostrophes everywhere as if you were salting your dinner plate!

Looks like we need to go back to basics.

  1. Argh!

    Perhaps if we upheld a rule of corporal punishment for this?

    Anyone misusing an apostrophe will have a similar mark placed upon them by strategic use of a cheese grater.

    I’m not a violent person, Ray & Karen know, but this is a maddening problem!
