    Even the very best writers make mistakes in spelling, grammar, capitalization, and punctuation— and I appreciate it!

    Re: Why doe's everyone not use spell check?

    I just HAD to reply to this topic....

    Robert Roark, in his book "The Old Man and The Boy", wrote his Old Man said something to the effect about speaking that although he spoke with collulisams (SIC) he knew the difference.

    Kinda like me.....

    I NEVER learned the second grade skill of spelling words.

    But, I, by jingo, know what they mean.

    And I'll not modify my speech patterns for anyone.

    Southern, by the grace of God.....

    "Go ahead, you got Robin"..... that's how I answer my phone. Totally incorrect use of verbage.

    BTW... spell check didn't work in the header of this thread.

    I'll go away and have breakfast at a lil' cafe on the waterfront here in Coastal Georgia.... Grits and eggs, bacon, toast, Bloody Mary's....

    Have a good 'un....

    Robin

    Not gonna get torn up again today by allowing the verbal police to dictate to me...

    I respect your opinion, but not when I know better.

    Fish... or cut bait.

    Great post, Robin!

    I'm reminded of Don Williams' line in the song, "Good Old Boys": Learned to talk like the man on the six o'clock news...

    And I'll admit to having done that, too, as a survival skill.

    A rather self-important and condescending CEO once informed me, in what I'm sure he considered a generous compliment, "Well, you certainly don't sound like you're from Arkansas."

    I gave him the long, hard look he'd earned and then replied, "I do when I'm there."

    Re: Why doe's everyone not use spell check?

    I guess my one track brain won't tolerate interupting myself to check words like "interupt". In modern elementary school my G'daughter used what they called "creative spelling" It has made her a super texter now and all I got when I asked if her cell phone had a spell checker was a ru nutz stare. Life is good.

    Why? Because they don't know what spell check is for if they don't know how to spell.

    Re: Why doe's everyone not use spell check?

    The last few books I have read have 'this', instead of "this". What's the deal? I make mistakes for two reasons. I think faster than I can type. I have a once broken finger that makes me put a misplaced "k" where is doesn't belong because I can't bend it. I can't bend the finger, not the "K"! See? Yep, sentence structure makes a difference in the meaning. Monty

    awl spell cheeked four U.

    Personaly I dont have Time, I usally give it the once over and move on. Its not like Im writting the president here.

    The point is what counts and I overlook others spelling, just like I overlook thier accent when speaking to them.
    Leave no stone unturned.
