Who Needs Punctuation??? (Yes–We Do!!!)

Punctuation is one of my most favorite topics. I regularly yell at signs posted on businesses along the roadway who declare such comments as WE HAVE WATERMELON’S TODAY.  Or worse yet SUNDAY SERVICE’S, or even… 4 SAIL SHOE’S. Yep, the culprit–misuse of apostrophe’s.  (Yes I spelled it on purpose…just sayin’.)
