No need for kid gloves....

Ok, Ok....I admit it...I have a problem, spelling and grammar.

Understand that this blog is not ghost written by a bunch of English Majors (you probably figured that out :) )

Mike Zimmer, of our great store in Merrillville Indiana, had this to say to me....

"Hi Bob, I have been enjoying your blog. You are a gifted writer. I have noticed a spelling/usage error a few times, and in friendship I wanted to point the mistake out to you. The word "your" is possessive, as in "is that your car?" "You're" is the contraction for you are. I hope you accept this in the spirit in which it is offered. Mike"

Jeez Mike, can you believe I actually proof read this one?

I have no excuses, except that this is all stream of conscious writing....and occasionally I am not re-reading it before I hit the publish button.

I appreciate, that you handled me with 'kid gloves' on this one, but know that my ego is not so shallow as to be offended by someone pointing out a few errors....actually I encourage it.

Thanks Mike....for dropping me a line, and squaring me up.
