Monday, Monday--Errata

        Teaching  Note to self:  Don't attempt counting or advanced grammar in a Monday morning blog post.  Have a cup of coffee first and ease into the week.

Today's earlier post contained two technical errors:  First, there are three generations interacting in J.K. Rowling's novel, The Casual Vacancy.  When writing the post I was focused on the concept of adults versus children, hence the reference to two generations.  However, the characters portrayed fall into three categories: parents, grandparents and elders, and children.

Now that I've set the math record straight, on to the grammar issue: English 101--possessives for singular and plural nouns.  Since I was referring to the issues of all the villagers in the post's last paragraph, I should have used villagers' (plural), not villager's (singular).

I sit corrected...thanks for reading and bearing with me.
