Calm down, temptress, I was just defending you, you silly goose. Keith was on his high horsey, and I pointed out that he made a dumb mistake while correcting you. The point being people shouldn't throw rocks if they live in glass houses.

I was taught to begin a sentence with a capital letter.....and you?

OK, I'll refrain from here on in.

Uh no :embarrassed: Paige and George are correct dude, it would be "Yet and I"
And why would you remove "Yet and" from the sentance? :?:

me is the objective case of (I). I stand by what I said.

Does "Here's a pic of I in Seattle" sound correct? The litmous test is to remove the second party from the sentence.

"Yet and I are in Seattle and here's a pic of the two of us" is correct.

We're just going to have to agree to disagree Melmoth.

Keith, I'll try one more time, and then assume you are being a geek. You wrote:

Sorry, It's just one of my things :)
Now please be patient with me and explain why "It's" starts a sentence.

Alrighty everyone,

Let's just agree to disagree and move on. If you want to continue the grammar conversation, please move it to the Watering Hole.

Thanks,

Debby

Apologies to all. One too many "nips" last night. Oh, and TimV, yes I now see what you're getting at...my mistake, but no, I'm no geek :)
