Spelling RuleNot

Listen, I've been doing this for fully a quarter of a century now, with six more years to go. When there are five of them, one sort of loses track of what's been taught to whom. So I'm sorry all over myself for the foibles.

Spying a little spelling error,...

Okay, do you know the little rhyme to aid in spelling, which begins, "'I' before 'E'?"

*eyes alight* *nodding*

"'I' before 'E' except after 'C', and 'E' before 'N' in chicken."
That was on Andy Griffith.

*eyes protruding*

Is it just, "'I' before 'E' except after 'C'?"

*jaw drops*

Oh, I guess I don't know it.

Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. ~Psalm 103:1
