Of Coarse Course!

Boy do I feel like a goofus - all these years of using the phrase 'of course' in conversation and in writing... And I've been using the wrong 'course' the whole time! Were it not for my wonderful Aunt, The Dairy Wife, I may have never found out that I was spelling it wrong!

Aunt Tan, thank you SO much for calling me & letting me know! I refuse to go back & change it everywhere on this blog (let's be reasonable!), but I surely will be doing so on my other blog, Photo Magic. I want it to look as professional as possible, and misspellings of words unfortunately don't convey that professionalism.

So, if anyone else knows of anything I've been misspelling or misusing on a regular basis, PLEASE let me know! Though I hate feeling like an idiot for these things, I'd much rather feel kinda dumb for a little bit than to be uneducated about it forever. Much love to you all and God Bless!

Hi Amanda

Nothing like a good blog editor to keep you on your toes. Troy is sometimes my master proof reader and editor.

Love to you my friend

I am a horrible speller, thank God for spell check, but when it comes to words thst sound alike but have different meanings, no spell check program is ever going to catch that for me! It's nice to have an editor for those things, huh? LOL, wish I had one sometimes.

But your post made me think of this email I got the other day, it's about spelling and how I minds work. :)

Oh funny. I am so, so thankful for spell check but as you can see it doesn't catch everything. Don't feel bad because we all do the same thing at times.
