100 Days of Gratitude - Day 62- Spell Check

I like to think that I got a pretty good education. If nothing else, it was expensive. Between the Marine Military Academy and Texas A&M I spent a lot of time writing papers and disecting them. Since then I've written a handful of books (see the rest of this site) and I put that education to use regularly. But I miss a lot too.

Ms. Pickens and Mr. Christesson did a pretty good job of teaching me English. I could probably still diagram a sentence if I needed to. Though I'm certain that I violate at least one thing in Mr. C's "F-list" every time I sit at a keyboard. His "F" list was a list of unbreakable rules (I can't remember all of them), and if he found one of those violations in a paper you wrote for Senior English - it was an automatic F and he'd stop reading.

I believe using "I" was one of them, and the misuse of "that" was another. Over using "THAT" is one of my biggest writing weaknesses.

I'm  a halfway decent speller, but without spell check I'd still miss so many mistakes that I'd look illiterate.

So today, I tip my hat to the squiggly red underline that shows up on my computer whenever I misspell a word. Thank you spell check.

***A special bonus thank you to Miss Michelle Pickens - my English teacher in 8th, 9th and 11th grade and Mr. Charles Chistesson, my Senior English teacher. I use what you guys taught me everyday and I apologize for it. :-)

    Hundred days of the gratitude are completed for the standard of the education rendered by it. It is the marine and taxes that are full of the educational services of the gratitude. It is the prospect of the good and fine students of the future.
