We Have a Space Issue

In Georgia, they do not consistently dot their is, but the ts are always crossed (see photos). In Florida, we have a space and caps issue:

How funny! Near Houston is the bedroom community of Sugarland. Or Sugar Land. You can take your pick. Really, I've seen it both ways, even by the people who live there, and no matter which way they write it, they'll swear it's correct!

Looks like the roads in Charlotte except they change names completely and you never once make a turn off the original road - It's Kings Road West, Queens Road, West Kings Road (not the same as Kings Road West) and then changes to something else. They don't call Charlotte's roadways - Charlotte's webs for nothing - lol - that's all I have to say on the subject - E :)

Love it! The case of the missing space!

Not known for their consistency eh? I bet this is common worldwide, though.

Patsy Cline was born and raised about 45 minutes from me in a city called Winchester...They decided a few years back they would name a street after her. They went through this big deal, t.v. stations were there, newspapers, etc. for the dedication.

But when they unveiled the sign it said Patsy Kline...it was quite a red faced moment for the city...

You would have thought someone would have looked at the sign before it was put up...grin..

Bunnygirl,
Ha! That reminds me of the great debate on the Wekiva River area NW of here--Wekiwa or Wekiva, and some people mix it up with Wakulla, which is a different spring entirely.

Oh my gosh! How can you ever give directions?! Charlotte's web, indeed!

CJG/PR,
Ha! Thank you!

plaidearthworm,
I love your name! Thanks for stopping by.

Charles,
Yes, I think you're right!

Brenda,
OMG! That would be like someone around here misspelling Walt Disney's name. I cannot believe that NO ONE checked the spelling beforehand! Great example!

I love these posts. You have photographic evidence of the ever elusive space monster!

In this town, we have a Well Street, Well Road, and Old Well Road, and they are (sort of) the same road, as it twists and turns through the town and into the countryside. Try giving directions with those!

Bad spelling drives me wild, but English spelling rules have only become so rigid comparatively recently (sorry for the infelicitous two adverbs used consecutively).

Sometimes I think I'd get on a lot better with writing if I WEREN'T so picky about spelling and grammar. I suspect autistic tendencies in myself...

LOL!

I take a lot of sign pictures, too--my husband thinks I'm obsessed--but they can just be so funny.
