The Long and Winding Road


Not to take anything away from Judy's amazing paintings, but I am hoping to visit Fr. Gregory and the Brothers this Saturday if anyone is interested in coming. I'm going to try an catch the 9:20 ferry that morning. If anyone else wants to join me just let me know. More details to come later this week.
God Bless!
Later days.

Please excuse the spelling and whatnot.

I'm sorry, what did you spell wrong? I went and re-read your post three times to find something, but nope. Hmmm, and now I'm thinking maybe I've got too much time on my hands.

Friday Firefly party anyone?

I couldn't figure out the spelling mistake (s?) either. Were you just trying to confuse us and make us question our spelling abilites :)

He missed a "d" as in "try and catch." He also missed a comma, as in "If anyone else wants to join me (comma) just let me know." This comma is necessary because he began the sentence with an "If-clause."

Also, the phrasing in the latter half of the first sentence is ambiguous: "I am hoping to visit Fr. Gregory and the Brothers this Saturday if anyone is interested in coming." Does this mean his hope to visit is contingent on others' interest, or that he is making an offer and others may go with him if they are interested, since his plan is to go (regardless of others' interests)? A comma would also clear up this confusion.

At any rate, you're excused Gabe. I actually didn't notice the first time around, and you got your meaning across, which is what counts. You are still fluent and literate!

Oh man, I've been in ELT (English Language Training) too long!


[My word verification is soqagod. Huh.]

biss said...

And the T in ELT stands for Teaching, not Training. I've been training in teaching too long. That's what I meant.

(Tonight I am making a lesson plan for modals of possibility in the past tense. Anyone need a refresher course???)

I might be interested in going along Gabe.

May I let you know a little closer to the weekend?

Gabe said...

Thanks Biss :)
Sure thing Kimberly. I won't be calling them until probably Thursday, so you have until then or maybe Friday to tell me your coming.

Um I think Stacey and Dave are coming in on Thursday. Can anyone get a hold of them and see if they want to make the trip out also?

Gabe said...

That's 'Stacy' not 'Stacey'
