  2. What can one say? I think I am a grammar nerd and am probably in desperate need of a semi-colonic irrigation.
    All the very best. Kris.

    2. My editor always deletes half of my semi colons; I love semi colons (yes I know I put them all over the place but I’m spot on with everything else.) Love semi colons so much I belong to a small writing group named the semi colons. ( yes I named us). In fun my husband says we’re a half assed group – wonder how long it took him to make that up!

      1. Like I said … a semi-colonic irrigation is the only answer. Should put a full-stop to your problem.

      3. Ha ha ha. You’re a scream, Judith. I don’t promise all my grammar and punctuation are spot on, but I know when I see both done wrong. 😦

      2. Just showing off really. I’ve been telling my classes about hyphens, hanging hyphens, Em dashes and En dashes and when to use them. Some people would tell me to get a life, I think! hahaha

      1. Thanks Deb. I thought that was weird. Every time I share your posts to my google page and try to ‘plus’ you on it, your name won’t come up, I’ll investigate. 🙂

  9. Interesting on the age group – wouldn’t think 18-14 year old’s would be grammar nerds considering what I’ve seen them write.
