Oh! *putting a mirthful paw over her grinning mouth to prevent it from giggling* That is funny! At least, Teddy Bear's name was spelled correctly. The program makers didn't screw up his name the way my mom messed up Anty Do-Re-Mi's name! See how scary it is to have a mom who is a professional proofreader? Soon, she will be telling you that YOUR name is spelled wrong, Charmer Joy!

So I was in VA this weekend for my great nephew's baptism on Sunday. My sister and I went to the church on Saturday to deliver the flowers and she picked up one of the programs for the next day. While she went to the parish house for a minute I looked at the program.
As Anty Stacey will tell you, my eyes seem to find lots of errors and this one was glaring.
When Betsy came back to the car, I reminded her that I did a little proofreading on the side and asked if she wanted to know what I found. She immediately said NO, then after a pause added "unless there's something wrong with the name."
Well, there was. His name is Theodore Robinson Steere, but the program said his last name was Steele. So . . . we left a note and took the programs home and I added a little mark to turn the l into an r. (I figured that would get my extra great aunt credit.)
Whoever found the note reprinted the programs so Teddy's name was right.
So I know Anty Stacey will laugh because I'm so notorious at finding that stuff. I tell Charmee that everyone must have a talent and I guess that's mine!
