    I just finished a post on my blog http://portraitsbylinda.wordpress.com/

    and my husband kindly came back to me and said:

    "nocks and cronies
    lol
    a cronie is slang for a bad guy, like a henchman. you mean "nooks and crannies"."
     
  2. There are some CROOKS and cronies in a few houses, too, I'm sure. haha.

    Too cute. :)

    Good thing your husband noticed the mistake Linda.

    You get some pretty strange errors when Microsoft Word's autocorrect function goes erratic and starts changing slight spelling mistakes without you realising, I once had a mispelling of unconfident turn into incontitent. Luckily I spotted it before the paper was done.
     
  4. Are you sure you weren't writing about us--you Cafe Cronies?????:biggrin::biggrin:

    lol... I hope not! :eek:

    Yes, well, I don't use Microsoft but our browser also likes to spell check for me but I didn't get any good ones for that phrase!
    Well, if you are incontinent, I would feel a bit unconfident. lol


    haha...yeah, it may very well have been a Freudian slip!

    I could see some cranky cooks around here...lol
