You Sing A Spell Chequer On A Poem

John Robinson runs a new blog since he retired his Daily Graff one which he calls The After Graff (an amalgamation of GRoan and lAFF). He now only posts on a Saturday with words of wisdom, a photo and a few words he wanted to share.

This week, his words focused on the misspelling of tomorrow. When I looked for words I commonly misspelled (with misspell being one of them) I found a poem that was posted in the comments.

This poem does not belong to me. I did not write it. I am copying what someone shared four years ago. 

Eye have a spelling chequer,
It came with my Pea Sea.
It plane lee marks four my revue
Miss Steaks I can knot sea.

Eye strike the quays and type a whirred
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am write oar wrong
It tells me straight a weigh.

Eye ran this poem threw it,
Your shore real glad two no.
Its vary polished in its weigh.
My chequer tolled me sew.

Translation:

I have a spelling checker
It came with my PC
It plainly marks for my review
Mistakes I cannot see

I strike the keys and type a word
And wait for it to say
Whether I am right or wrong
It tells me straight away

I ran this poem through it
You’re sure real glad to know
It’s very polished in its way
My checker told me so

Mind If I Pop Up?

I changed my “A Mixed Bag” icon today and changed it my random post widget on the right. I decided to make sure it worked and clicked it a few times. One of the posts it landed on made me laugh, as the picture always does. I thought I would share it again as it has been a couple of years.

Now, imagine you have phobias. I know some of you do, whether that be spiders, clowns, snakes, eyes, webs, or anything else. You go into a bookshop and find this. Do you read it, or leave it?

A Rare Repost – An Ulterior Motive (The Daily Graff)

It is very rare for me to do a repost or reblog, but I thought I would make an exception. John Robinson (the blogger, not the pilgrim) wrote a book of letters over a ten year period. I have reviewed this book before here, so I thought I would link to his post.
