For the 7th consecutive week, we are turning a state green! (Whoops–spoiler alert?)
Before I get to Greta M., let’s start with a typo that seems to be set in wood. Betty W. found this atrocity at Yellowstate National Park in Montana:
Seeing as we’ve found this typo in a national park, this seems like a great time to remind you to always ask permission before you attempt to correct a typo. (Though, even with permission, that one would have been tough.)
The other reason I felt like sharing that is that I thought a spelling mistake might be nice before we launch into a study of apostrophe failure. Greta M. seems to have made it her mission to catalog all manner of misplaced apostrophes (there’s even one where the apostrophe’s right, but the S…you’ll see). Let’s start with the one she found in Nashville, Tennessee, which will now go yellow.
Greta M. comes by her typo spying skills honestly, for her mother also found a typo in Indianapolis, a classic spelling mix-up, and where Greta turned the state yellow, her mom has turned it green. Voila!
Mmm…I love peanut brittle, especially when it’s spelled correctly! Nice work, Greta’s mom!
Seven consecutive weeks with corrections, but while I’ve still got more finds to catch up on posting about, I may well be out of corrections… I’m depending on you to keep turning that map green!
