A sign I truly need to lighten up

For several years, I have been drooling over beautiful bonded leather photo album from a store who makes, uh, really beautiful bonded leather photo albums. And other beautiful things. Beautifully. Anyway, this particular beautiful item is designed specially for Christmas photos. There's a choice of deep red or rich green. Smoooooth leather...I can just feel it. And I can imagine it being in my family for fifty years and Mickey and Alex fighting over who gets it when I die.

But one thing, and one thing only, has kept me from pulling the trigger and buying it:

The front of the album is preprinted with the phrase "Christmas Thru the Years."


How hard would it have been to just add three teeny-weeny letters to spell it correctly? They tell me it's worth $75 and then they take a horrifying shortcut with "through"?! I can't do it, I just can't. I would truly need some sort of sedative every time I looked at it.

So I guess my priceless Christmas photos will have to live in a plain 'ol fifteen-dollar album from Target. Without any spelling errors whatsoever.

Maybe Mickey and Alex will find something else to fight over.

I get the same feeling when I see those signs people put on their homes or in their yards:
The Smith's
The Williams

At least it's not "Xmas thru the Years" ...
