Aha! Stationary is to remain immobile, whereas stationery refers to paper, etc. Great post! Thanks for stopping by and linking up. Have a great day!
Kristi, Live and Love…Out Loud
P.S. I couldn't find your tweet in my Twitter account (@TweetingMama). By any chance did you send it to my daughter @TweetingBaby? lol

I'm glad Kristi explained that one because I was perplexed. Your Big Green Pen is just too sharp for me! 🙂
Kristi did a great job of explaining the difference between “stationary” (stays in one place) and “stationery” (paper on which letters are written). My wonderful sixth grade English teacher, Mrs. Bowen, explained that the reason there is an “a” in the one about being still is that it represents an “anchor” — “a” for “anchor.” The other “stationery” is for letters which as Susan so aptly pointed out is a word with two “e's”. Thanks for playing along on “find that error”!

Good Wordless Wednesday post!
