Cross your t's and dot your i's

And while you're at it check your spelling too.


After reading over my post yesterday, Gibbs has decided that he needs to start editing before I publish them. He says that it will save me from future embarrassment. 
Some of you may not have noticed but those of you who pay close attention to such things may have picked out my mistakes.

I'm going to use the excuse that I was tired when I wrote that post because when I read it the next day the errors nearly flew off the screen at me.

 I typed:
If that means getting a cute container from which to drink my water or tea than it's worth every scent I pay for it.

Than should have been then and scent should have cent.

As you can see from the picture Gibbs is not happy with me.

  2. I always make all kinds of mistakes. Not too worry. But good job Gibbs, keeping the Mom straight. These darn peeps just get out of control. You all have a great week end.

  3. Yes I noticed, but I make so many of my own that I knew what you meant and just moved on. Tell Gibbs not to be so hard on you. I'm just saying.

    Have a woof woof day Gibbs. My best to your hard working mom. ♥♥♥

  4. I saw them and chuckled at "scent"...Is my man Gibbs off to the groomers soon - he's looking a little shaggy.

  5. Another excuse is you talk with an accent. Maybe a bit of old Dutch. I saw a picture of Walleye taken at Lake Erie and was shocked at size. I need to catch one.

  6. I missed the post below, but have just checked it out. I have never seen a bottle like it! I would have totally missed the mistakes, and I bet most people never even saw them.

  7. These days I am lucky to get a post up--who cares what errors are in it? And who's the sausage that pointed it out?

  8. You are very lucky to have your cute assistant. Unfortunately, those are the words that spell check can't catch.

  9. I learned a long time ago that the best way to get along with you is to not pay close attention. (LOL?)

  10. I don't remember noticing those mistakes. I'm sure I make mistakes constantly while leaving comments. My son reads my blog and point out mistakes all the time, lol I'm usually trying to type too fast. and really, who cares! :))

  11. Well Gibbs is kind to volunteer to proofread for you.
    I don't mention mistakes now to people unless I think they won't mind as I did that once on someone's blog and they were not happy about it at all.

  12. LOL, never even noticed Ann, guess that means I shouldn't read when I'm tired either! Go easy on her Gibbs, she's working hard to keep you in kibbles!

  13. In your case, the errors created another blog post idea. Perfect I say!

Thoughts, opinions, constructive criticism, it's all good to me.
I will delete all spam comments however, so don't even bother trying!
