A good laugh on both sides now

Though only peripherally (very) related to the serious study of Spiritualism, I hope this gives you as good a laugh as I had Smile

I remember quite a few years ago when it was planned that children were to be taught how to spell on how the words sounded.
That idea didn't last very long..... Laughing

I'm afraid I would have removed the card and inserted another with better spelling.

Petal, kids don't learn spelling in the same way that we did and with social media's influence now I doubt that things will improve.

I don't think that kids read in the same way as we did either so they don't pick up correct spelling as easily as we did.

But this made me laugh out loud. In a city where we have many people whose first language isn't English it is more endearing than difficult.

The dear soul would be laughing too much to rast in peas but I hope her family can forgive.

LOL.
M'colleagues who teach teenagers regularly-report receiving 'written' work in text message language.
Doesn't happen to me thankfully as all my 25 and upwards age student teachers have to have a full degree plus world of work experience or Level 4 in a technical or vcational subject plus five year in the workplace before they enrol to train.
This, anecdotally; from a website obit on a social network....

And don't the kids text so quickly?
Beat me hands down every time.
Pity their homework is not done so quickly?
Watching my grandson text the other day,his fingers were moving like quick silver.
But ask him to go and mow the garden,his steps are definately slower..... Laughing

Some great epitaphs on graves,some hilarious and some quite sad.
We toured Northen France many years ago,first night there in Beauvais.
What a dead place (pun Embarassed ) we toured the local graveyard.
The only living thing we saw was the village cat,followed us all around.

Huddersfield Alderman Arkwright commissioned the stonecutter to carve his late wife's epitaph......
Lord she was thine.
Stone went up reading
Lord she was thin
Arkwright remonstrated with the mason.
" Tha daft plum tha's left a E off t'stone".
Mason agreed to rectify his error.
Once he had done so it read
E Lord she was thin.
