Our World: Oops!

Mom at Winslow Christian Church, Winslow, Indiana. October 5, 2006.

This is my post for the Our World meme.  This meme is a second generation of My World Tuesday created by Klaus Peter and is hosted by five wonderful ladies.  To learn more about our world or to join and share your part of the world, click HERE.

In October, 2006, Betsy and I drove my parents to Winslow, Indiana, which was Mom’s hometown and the place where Mom and Dad met.  This picture was taken in front of the church in which Mom grew up.  If you look closely at the base of the sign you will see that it is ‘In Memory of Mr. & Mrs. James Cassidy’ — Mom’s parents and my grandparents.

There’s only one small problem — the family spelled their last name ‘CassidAy’!

    That’s a big oops! Good reason to double check the spelling and proofread your work, before installing. Originally, it was only on the concrete slab topper to the base. Now it’s part of a completed project.

  2. diane Says:

    Isn’t that often the way, where a name gets spelt incorrectly on something important. I bet she has seen some changes over the years,

  3. Ruth Hiebert Says:

    Some forgot to read the name carefully. Mom still looks very happy.

    That’s going to trip up some poor genealogy researcher in about 50-75 years;)

  5. Sandra Says:

    i agree with Ruth, your mom looks like she was really happy to be there. not the first oops not the last for sure.

  6. Sylvia Kirkwood Says:

    What a great shot of your Mom and she does look happy! That is a “Ooops” indeed it and it will indeed mess with the mind of some future genealogy researcher! Great look at your world, George, as always!! Enjoy your day!

    A beautiful and endearing picture.

  8. Ginny Hartzler Says:

    Did your grandparents give the money for the church sign? That is very cool that their name is on it. I know your mom was happy to be back there, this is a really sweet picture.

  9. Snap Says:

    Oops is right! Mom looks happy.

  10. Rajesh Says:

    Nice shot and a reminder of sweet memories of grand parents.

  11. Garry Ladouceur Says:

    There is more than one oops. The actual reference is Psalm 46: 10. The entire psalm has only 11 parts.

    Great photo of your mom! If you go to Shooting Parrots’s blog, you will see that he mentions the same problem with spelling. He shows a photo in which Shakespeare is spelled like Shakespere ! It’s quite interesting. Thanks for your kind words on my blog!

    Oh no!! That is an oops! Still your mom looks quite happy!!

  14. Carletta Says:

    To be able to visit the church where she grew up must have pleased her very much as her beautiful smile attests to.
    I think those two spellings would also be pronounced differently if I’m not mistaken. Maybe somebody didn’t listen either. 🙂
    I’ve learned to enunciate the ‘t’ in my last name otherwise it’s something different to people.

  15. Rose Says:

    I need to look up where this is…I remember the name but not sure where from!

  16. andrea Says:

    But it is easy to correct, it is just made of cement! A few dollars will make a difference!

  17. Jenn Jilks Says:

    What a lovely photo!

    Oops really. This kind of thing should not happen. Your mother is a real Lady!
