    These posts are great refreshers, Arielflies, and I enjoy your joyful spin on what we saw. My favorite line from last night's rundown was, "Jef is in fairytale land with Emily. I wonder if he realizes Ricki dreams of dragons."

    Episode 6

    Episode Keyword: Confidence

    Emily sends Ricki flying home with her babysitter and takes the remainder of her journey solo. She needs to be able to concentrate more on her relationships with the eight hopefuls who will follow her, and looks forward to their time in Dubrovnik, Croatia.

    Sitting high on a hill overlooking the sea, the medieval city of Dubrovnik offers city walls, castles and streets of pavers to intrigue. Emily carries her travel bag up steep steps to a small two story house of stone while the men arrive in the harbor by boat, marveling at the scenery.

    NOTICE: The L word pokes its head into this episode. From Jef stating that Croatia would be the perfect place to fall in love to Jef telling us he is beginning to fall in love with her to Chris telling Emily he could fall in love with her. Arie makes the boldest statement to the audience when he tells us he is definitely in love with Emily.

    Once they are settled into their suite at Dubrovnik Sun Gardens, Emily arrives to say hello and drop off the first date card.

    Travis Date (Let’s Look for Love Beyond the Walls)


    What can one say about this date? This is the fourth (but, who’s counting) walkabout trying to figure out if they are a couple type date. Travis is on the bubble with Emily and, while she likes him as a friend, could she love him?

    During their tour of the walled city, Travis buys a stone cross from a street vendor; and tries to find his balance on a stone jutting out of a wall. Like with the gates in previous episodes, this is also a test of being lucky in love. He fails because, against Emily’s hopes, he doesn’t take off his shirt. In an alley they dance to the music of a gourd mandolin player set up by production. Sound familiar, Bach fans? This is like the Tenley/Jake date in San Francisco, but without the Chinese food. They cut to dinner where Emily picks up the rose and toys with it while telling poor Travis that this is the end of the line for him. This man who brought an egg named Shelly to opening night and beyond, cries as he walks down a wet street, rain pouring on his head; “Rejection sucks with a capital S.U.C.K.” All of her compliments were directed toward a friend, not a lover.

    Group Date (Lasting Love Requires Bravery)

    John, Doug, Sean, Jef, Chris and Arie are named leaving Ryan for the second solo date. Doug notices that Ryan’s confidence is starting to rub some of the guys the wrong way.

    Production finds a gorgeous meadow set among mountainous crags on which to stage Scottish Highland Games. Uh, this is not a meadow in Scotland, and not all that traditional to Scotland as the men ride in on donkeys as if they were riding to war in an ancient Croatia. In order to keep your brain from trying to squish together confusing facts, think of it as a film location with a bit of smudging rather than reality. The only thing that truly matters is that the men wear kilts and sleeveless tee shirts showing off their manly muscles. Of course they freeze in the frigid weather, but look great on camera.

    Before our eyes can caress these manly men, Emily treats them (sans kilts) to a first showing of the new Pixar animated movie, Brave. They lean against the railing of the lower boxes in what appears to be an opulent Opera House, munch popcorn and take away the image of a feisty, head strong young woman who knows her own mind. Since the movie slightly paralleled their own current experience with courting a feisty, head strong young woman, they feel they can relate.

    After changing into their kilt outfits, including long white socks, drum and pipe music takes them into the city square where the locals gawk and Emily awaits.

    Back in the meadow (please ) the contests are set up, the first being archery where Emily is the one to beat. All but Chris manage to hit the target with Sean happy to show off his defined bulk. Chris takes this loss in great humor and volunteers to go first in the next challenge – a caber toss. He manages to heft the long log, tries to heave it, but it falls flat – a disqualifying toss. Sean with his chiseled bulk easily lifts the caber and, with a strong toss end over end, somehow manages to break off pieces of the log when it lands. Ah, the champion in Emily’s eyes, or so he thinks. He also wins the next strength challenge, The Maide Leisg, and waits to be handed the trophy cup. Not so fast, Sean. Emily rewards the hapless Chris for his courage at diving into the challenges that were beyond his strength and skill. He also wins some precious time with Emily.

    Goodbye to the men in kilts as they change into modern suit dress, uh, attire for the after party.

    After Party Sit Downs or Walk Arounds

    No one is confident they will get a rose.

    Emily tells Sean that she doesn’t want him to leave the party without knowing where he stands with her. She wants him to keep confidence with what they have even when things get harder. Before they kiss, Sean tells her that he isn’t going anywhere.

    Arie once again apologizes for his behavior in London. Emily reassures him by saying she held him to a different standard than everyone else at that after party and says she is sorry she was so hard on him. After they find the same page, they commit to loving being around each other, and Arie just wants to steal her away. A wall and soft music cue a passionate kiss that makes one think…dream guy. After their “talk” Arie feels confident again like he is on top of the world.

    Jef offers his jacket and a blanket to ward off the chill as he and Emily sit down at the boat dock. Emily tells him he was awesome during the date and feels like they made progress. Jef agrees and says he feels like he can open up more with her. She gives him the type of feeling, like, people, like, write novels about. He feels like there could be, like, something really good with them, and Emily agrees. However, she asks him, “What took you so daggone long to kiss me?” He replies that he was scared of her. Emily likes that he keeps her guessing, but Jef tells her he really likes her and would like for this to work out. They lean in for one of those kisses and Jef softly tells her that he is freakin’ crazy about her; Emily replies, “Me, too.” Uh, I think she means she’s crazy about Jef, not herself.

    Chris mentions that it is starting to get more serious now. He tells her that he can fall in love with her, that he could love her forever. This cues Emily to leave him only to return with the rose. She offers it to him because he kind of gives her butterflies in her stomach. They end with a kiss that has Arie and Jef leaning forward from the couch to get a better look.

    Ryan Date (The World is Our Oyster)

    Ryan should have been on the group date because he tends to bray a lot and kick up his heels. In other words, he is a donkey’s ass.

    As Ryan shaves in preparation for his date, Jef tells us that he thinks everyone in the house is up in arms against Ryan and his game at this point. His gut feeling tells him that Emily has that gut feeling, also. Chris tells us that Ryan is kind of a jackass. It takes him three hours to get ready…he shaves his legs and plucks his finger hairs and stuff…weird.

    When Emily arrives to pick him up, he tries out a smooth line, but he stumbles and calls the oyster a pearl. He continues with “See…I already thought there was a pearl in there.” Once he has left with Emily, the guys' barely contained laughter explodes. Arie crosses his fingers that Ryan goes home and he never has to see him again.

    With Ryan driving, they travel down a steep, curving road to the docks. After assuring her that he may not seem to be safe, he is a safe driver. This while other cars honk at him and pass. In the car, Emily teases him by saying she thinks he is more rotten than he led her to believe (the Trophy Wife comment.) However, when they stop to take pictures, she tells us she likes his playful side. At that moment, Ryan seems to be both yin and yang to her thinking.

    They arrive at the docks in Ston and gear up to be helpers on an oyster boat. With encouragement, Emily does eat one of the fresh oysters, but then throws up over the side of the boat. She chewed when she should have just swallowed it whole. But, she tells the oyster captain that she loved it.

    They pick up a picnic basket and (one of the sweetest moments in the show) run into an old man who shows them a picture of when he was younger. It sounded like he was comparing himself to Ryan in looks. He mentioned San Francisco, but whether that was a place he had lived, or had family there, is unknown as he spoke in the Croatian language.

    At the picnic on a bench, Emily reminds Ryan that trophies don’t talk back, and he smoothly tells her that she would be one of a kind, that she would be the very best. Emily tells us that she goes back and forth hourly on Ryan from him making her feel good to questioning everything he says to her.

    At dinner he informs her he wore turquoise colored shoes to impress her. She tells him after prompting that she saw a lot of sides to him this date that she really liked. Duh, duh, duh…Ryan pulls out a list of 12 things he always wanted to find in a woman and proceeds to read them off. The farther he goes down the list, the tighter Emily’s face becomes. At the end of his recitation of his perfect wife – most having to do with beauty and servitude – Emily picks up the rose and twiddles it giving a lovely speech that compliments him yet lets him know that at the top of her list would be a loving family and not a perfect one. That is on her list, but not on his. She sighs and denies him the rose. But, WAIT! This suave suitor finds this denial shocking; that he did not see it coming. Emily has a hard time saying goodbye, but holds her ground and escorts him out.

    Back at the hotel, the guys are rather divided on whether Ryan is coming back. Arie has a lot of faith in Emily making the right decision. Jef thinks he is the kind of dude who thinks he would be the next Bachelor. When The Hand drags Ryan’s suitcase out of the door, there is a lot of whooping and hollering for joy that he is gone, baby, gone. Jef wishes he could see his face.

    Last of the Ryanisms

    At the first greeting – “I put my arm around her. I don’t know if the other guys noticed or not.

    On Travis possibly returning to the hotel – “I think she likes someone with an edge, and that’s me. I have the mean on the football field and I miss him sometimes.”

    On realizing he has the last 1:1 date – “I see myself as an absolute front runner. I can jump into a romantic connection with her. Like, I could manipulate the situation; I can go get the girl; I know how to go get the girl. It may come off seeming arrogant, but that’s just me being truthful.”

    When receiving the date card – “I feel I keep things fresh and new. I feel confident. The other guys don’t possess the same qualities I do. I’m somewhat of a perfectionist. I wake up every morning and say, ‘who do you want to be today?’ I know I’m a good looking guy who can pick up women. I know I’m good for a rose.”

    As they picnic, Ryan tells her he wants a great woman and has made himself into a great man for her. He thinks she would be a promise woman – a trophy wife.

    On the way to dinner – “She for sure is going to be somebody's trophy wife and I’m pretty sure I’ve got a shot at that.”

    Walking down the street in his turquoise Crocs, he says that she isn’t making the right decision, that he really doubts the right guy is here for her. He can’t imagine how shocked the guys are that he isn’t returning. He thinks they’ve built great friendships and he’ll see those guys again real soon.

    “One day I hope, that in all of this, the way that I am portrayed is for who I really am and, you know, not confident in the wrong things.” He goes on to instruct production to portray him as he really is and not an arrogant ass. Um, Ryan, too late for that, but I’m so glad they left that statement in for your arrogant edit.

    Late Night Visit

    Arie still feels the sting of Emily’s words about loyalty in London, and even though they hashed it out during their group date walking sit down, he wants to tell her he commends her for sending Ryan home. We know there is a rivalry between Arie and Ryan from last week, so it doesn’t come as any surprise that he wants to claim a victory of sorts even if it isn’t presented that way.

    After surprising her at her front door, Arie just wants to hold her and hug her and let her know she made the right decision. They lounge on the bed and ramble about Ryan leaving and the hard week in London and him wanting her to ask him the tough questions; all the while his seductive eyes show off his sincerity. Well, they do…Meanwhile she assures him he is receiving a rose and even gives him the “extra” one she brought home from the Ryan date. They noisily smooch as the camera pans to the rose that he lay on his jacket.

    Emily really likes Arie and feels confident with him for knowing him such a short amount of time.

    Arie: I feel like at this point, I’m definitely in love with Emily. I could ask that girl to marry me tomorrow.

    Rose Party Sit Downs

    Is there a song called, “Guys on the Bubble”? If so it was written for John and Doug with John being the most likely to have his bubble burst.

    Guarded John pulls his grandparents funeral cards from his wallet and opens up with emotion.

    Doug tries to move their relationship along by telling her he doesn’t want to go home, yet feels he is behind the other guys. Emily invites him to skooch closer to her and pulls his arm around her back. Even though she is leading, his caressing thumb takes advantage of her hip. We are aware of this fact because the cameraman keeps zooming in on it.

    Rose Ceremony

    We heard during this episode that Emily pretty much or blatantly told two of the men they would receive roses: Sean and Arie. It looks as though that will leave three unknown roses to hand out since it seems the plan is to take five to the next destination. Normally production sets it up for the next Rose Ceremony to go from six to four, not five to four, so what happens during Emily’s last rose decision is not beyond Bachelordom pale or anything new. Emily likes her final conversations with the two on the bubble and requests an extra rose on the platter. It is done. Everyone is happy.

    Order of the Roses

    Chris (group date rose)
    Sean
    Jef
    Arie
    John
    Doug

    Previews
    Prague. Drama once again erupts when a disclosure about Arie comes to the surface. Chris’ insecurities that seem to interrupt the Rose Ceremony. John gets a date, but does he stay? And someone makes out with Emily on a rug in the middle of a library.

    Credit Roll
    Donkeys really are braying asses and stubborn with it. Besides long legged men looking silly sitting on short legged beasts, the beasts take off and go where they want; Emily just hopes they don’t run over her.

    Great recap! I love the Ryanisms and am afraid I might miss them just a wee bit.

    EPISODE 7

    Prague, The Czech Republic – another beautiful old world city ripe for exploration and Bachelor shenanigans. Emily arrives in the old city section and finds her accommodation at the Golden Well Hotel near the old town Clock Tower. With next week being hometowns, she is more nervous now than she was in the beginning. She looks forward to seeing who her final four are in their hometown environments. But, enough of Emily’s introductory remarks on her initial tour the city, we want to see the drama of the episode – not really as they had to make some of it up out of frayed cloth.

    Chris Harrison greets the hopeful six by telling them this is the BIGGEST week. The lucky four will take Emily home to meet their families, a huge step in any relationship. Well, duh, Chris, after three dates of course it is time to meet the ‘rents. He also says that the only date rose will be on the group date so the three 1:1 dates will be free of that pressure. However, the guys recognize that even without worrying about the rose, there is still pressure to move their relationship with Emily along the path to oneness. Oh, stop me now.

    Last week we were privileged to watch Ryan’s hubris take a fall and this week we get to see not so much hubris from Chris, but out and out childishness. This is our main drama point for the episode and his whining begins as they sit down to hear the reading of the first date card. It continues and continues throughout the show about how he NEEDS time with Emily until, close to explosion at the Rose Ceremony, he finally gets that time. I’m not going to belabor the recap with all his moments, just know they were woven throughout the episode and quite annoying.

    The guys find their room at the Aria Hotel and the first date card. Sean picks up the card and reads, “Arie…Let’s Czech out Prague together.” Arie is stoked to be touring with Emily, but he is a little anxious because he’s invested a lot of his emotions and feelings.

    ARIE DATE

    With guide book tucked under her arm, Emily picks up Arie at the hotel and they take off on their walking tour. Emily wants the tone of the date to be a married couple as tourists taking in the sights. They stop at a street stall and order two hot wines, but we don’t get to see them drink. Arie tells us that it would be very romantic if they got married in one of the giant cathedrals as they cut to him stealing a kiss. Emily likes to kiss Arie; she kisses him a lot. Arie, however, finds himself falling more and more in love with her. Throughout their explorations, a theme develops with Emily...Arie is hiding something, but rather than confronting him, she tries to pry it out with hints. Since that doesn't work, production takes over and we get the manufactured drama part of the show.

    Darn ol’ internet and rag magazines…they seem to have forced the show to address what at other times could have been worked out in private. Thus we are treated to an odd bit of add on drama because Arie and Emily’s producer, Cassie, dated briefly ten years ago. Emily’s problem is not that they dated, but that Arie should have said something to her. After cut-a-ways to Chris Harrison narrating the timeline and scenario, Emily complains to Cassie that she should have been told. Anyway, long segment short, Cassie, Emily and Arie hash it all out in private and Emily regains her trust in that Arie was clueless about it being a deal, big or not.

    With the romance back on, we, and they are treated to a nighttime meal aboard a river transport barge on the Vitava River where they snuggle. Arie tells her he loves her. Oh, yes he did. Fireworks explode over the Charles Bridge as their chemistry kicks in once more. However, his early declaration scares Emily a bit because this changes everything.

    JOHN DATE

    John reads his own date card, “John… in Prague all you need is love.” He lets out a breath and a sigh of relief at receiving his first 1:1 date of the season.

    After a tour by river transport, John also goes walkies with Emily and their steps take them to the Lennon Wall where musical freedom spoke out against oppression during the Soviet era. They add to the colorful graffiti on the wall with brushes and paint ready for them to use. John (maybe he got this date because of his name) decides a boat would be appropriate. Anyway, his goal for the day is to be more open with Emily.

    Well, maybe that doesn’t work as well as he hopes as, after writing their initials on a padlock and attempting to lock it around a post on the lock fence to cement their love, it doesn’t click until Emily finds the key. Sorry, John, it is just one sign after another that you won’t be moving forward.

    What is it about John underground? In Bermuda it was a deep cave and now, in Prague, it is a deep dungeon. He is not a creepy guy, just one who is sent to creepy places to eat food and try to make points with Emily. It worked the last time, and it sort of works this time. At least he has her all to himself and gets to tell her the sad story of a cheating fiancée. He puts in his pitch for a hometown visit and takes on a confident air that leads to a kiss.

    Ah, enlightenment…Emily tells us that she needs to go deeper with John, to find out who he really is. So, there is method to this cavernous madness.

    SEAN SNEAKS OUT

    I wonder if Chris’ whining finally got to Sean during their sitting around the hotel the past two days. He needs to see her, to reconnect. Actually he hears his name called on the group date card and makes swift plans when he learns that Emily dropped John off after their date. We learn that he knows her name when, after leaving the hotel with camera and sound techs in tow, he yells EMILY! up and down deserted streets in imitation of Stanley Kowalski in Street Car Named Desire, or at least Charlie, during his season, calling for “Sarah”. However, Sean doesn’t do the Charlie leaping heel click. No, Sean is very serious about his pursuit of fair maiden.

    Sean IS a very serious guy and he makes that plain to Emily once he catches up to her in a darkish alley. Emily is happily surprised to see him. I bet, as he could have been a monster out to kill girls walking in darkish alleys at night. He tells her he had to see her and the theme peculiar to them rises when they repeat over and over, “I missed you.” Multiple kisses ensue then they repair to a bar to gush over one another. Emily likes hanging out with him. As they make out in the bar with untouched beer sitting on the table, Sean tells us that he could see himself married to her; that he could spend his life with her.

    After the bar, they find a wall on which to support their passionate kisses while Emily tells us that she likes that he thinks about her, that he is a wonderful person.

    GROUP DATE

    Arie reads the card that tells Sean, Doug and Chris, “Let’s find our happily ever after.”

    The three guys on the last group date of the season climb into a carriage which will convey them to a 13th century castle on top of a hill above the village of Krivoklat. It is raining, the carriage is small, and the men are big. Thank goodness strong horses are pulling. Not a comfortable ride at all up the steep hill. Once they arrive they marvel at the fairytale aspects of the ancient castle, exploring the rooms and battlements with Emily.

    Uh, oh…the wonderment of castle exploring is cut short for Doug as Emily finds him sweet, but doesn’t see any chemistry between them. While sitting in a window talking, he accidently brushes her leg and apologizes. After telling him that she welcomes touching, she can see that he isn’t ready for this style of dating and escorts him to the gateway. In the middle of a lovely speech about how lovely he is and how she doesn’t want to keep him away from his son any longer, he thinks she is asking for a kiss (he has been waiting for her to ask for a kiss) and makes his move. Poor Doug…Emily receives his unexpected kiss and steps back to continue the BUT part of her speech. He has been a gentleman almost to a fault but they won’t be moving forward. He leaves with the understatement of the episode: I think my girl radar is just totally broken.

    Back inside the dark and gloomy castle, Emily changes into evening dress and joins Sean and Chris for a champagne toast to the now awkward 2:1 date. To decide who gets alone time with her first, she presents them with keys – the larger key she hands to Sean and the smaller key to Chris. They find a locked room and lo and behold, the large key fits the lock. Duh, Sean gets the first chat with Emily while Chris twiddles his thumbs in the lounge area waiting, waiting. Sean and Emily resume their kissing marathon including on the stairs back to the lounge. No wonder Chris has been whining.

    Chris spends his time trying to reconnect with Emily by not dwelling on his upset, but he does dwell on it to the point of annoyance. Emily tries to reassure him, but his underlying frustration has hold of him. Chris leans in for kisses and tells us that he is falling in love with Emily and that taking her home to meet his family would be the next step.

    After rejoining Sean in the lounge, Emily tells them that the group date rose is the most important one because it symbolizes the family she is ready to meet, and gives it to kissing fool Sean, and not angst ridden Chris. A bubbling pot begins to steam.

    Chris: If I don’t get a hometown date, I’d be scared for anyone around me.

    JEF DATE

    John, feeling confident after his date, reads Jef’s card, “This is your chance to pull at my heartstrings.” Jef is stoked to be going on the last date before hometowns. Emily is happy she can spend the day with someone she likes to hang around.

    They head out for a street stroll with a purpose – to examine the wares of a marionette shop. As they play with the puppets, Emily tells us that Jef would be a great dad, because he is a big kid, himself. To prove that and that he has skills, Jef makes a Michael Jackson marionette dance, including moonwalking. They choose fairly large wooden representatives of themselves to take with them on their journey, but wait…Jef goes back into the shop to purchase a small marionette to represent Ricki – a princess dressed in blue. Emily gushes as they head toward the 18th century Stahov Library with its Tromp D’Oeil ceiling. She can see going to his office and seeing pictures of their family there. Jef can see a future with Emily; there is just something there. There is a lot of imagining between the two of them as becomes apparent when they reach the library.

    After oohing and awing over the magnificent library with its painted ceiling, they decide to re-enact their courtship using their marionettes. Puppets are sometimes used in therapy because one can place a wall between speaking feelings directly by saying them through a puppet. Jef takes advantage of this strategy when at the end of their cute play, his image tells her image that he is 100…no, one million percent in love with her and he can’t even imagine what he would do without her in his life. This along with his lovely Miss Piggy proposal sets him apart as a wordmeister when it comes to romance. However he then pulls it back with a joke: Emily…let’s get a dog together. Emily, who has been laughing throughout their play, thinks maybe they should get a cat. The playing ends with soft kisses and soft words.

    Jef: I really like you.

    Emily: I like you, too.

    The marionettes disappear and a blanket appears on the library floor. Serious conversations take place as they imagine a life together. The first is the “will your family like me” tough one regarding the home visit. Jef tells her that he once broke up with a girl mostly because his family didn’t like her, and this concerns Emily, makes her nervous. She learns that she won’t be meeting his parents but will be meeting all of his siblings except one. He wants her to see the kind of family he wants, and thinks she wants also – close knit where the parents are crazy about each other.

    The second is imagining their life together as they lie on the floor gazing up at the ceiling. They both reveal that they would not want to live together before marriage and the conversation moves on to children.

    Jef: How soon after we get married would you want kids?

    Emily: Yesterday.

    Jef: Me, too. I keep telling you that I can’t wait to be the fun dad.

    This brings up Jef as fun dad letting the children get away with murder. Emily says she pictures them fighting because he wouldn’t discipline. He smiles that he would pull back depending on how mad she was. Both giggle imagining the situation. The scene changes to kisses and muttered words. Jef tells her he really likes her and when she reciprocates, asks her to promise. Then the romantic wordmeister utters the line of the season (so far) which has shocked viewers, but makes Emily laugh: I wanna date you so hard and marry the f*** out of you. Scene fade to black.

    ROSE CEREMONY

    The gang arrives at a beautiful, but frigid, manor house on the border with Austria and after stressing for a few minutes over the three remaining roses, Chris Harrison makes his entrance to tell them Emily has made up her mind and there won’t be a party. They are to follow him directly to the ceremony room.

    Chris, who was counting on pleading his case and apologizing during the party, begins to shake. Where Chris is nervous, John is gaining confidence that he will receive a rose, especially with the party cancelled. Another bad sign for John, eh?

    ORDER OF THE ROSES


    Sean (date rose)
    Jef
    Arie

    But WAIT! What light through yonder window breaks…is it the east? No, it is Chris on the verge of collapse begging for a chance to speak with Emily. Granted. He apologizes for his behavior and walks back to his place in the middle of the line-up. John is still confident in his chances, but this could change things. It does.

    Chris

    The Rose-less John, though stunned, takes his exit gracefully.

    Previews: Short and not so telling as flashes of the four hometowns speed across our screens. The focus is on Emily and her qualms before the Rose Ceremony about not wanting to hurt anybody.

    Credit Roll: Hide and Seek during the group date at the castle. Doug begins counting as Emily seeks a place to hide. Sean and Chris find her while Doug continues to count…297…298. Makes you wonder why Doug went home.

    Someone posted a link in another thread showing that Jef's infamous line was not exactly original. Though, I don't care for bad language, for some reason when Jef says it, it doesn't sound quite so crass.

    Yes, I discovered that it came from an ecard and even the wording is somewhat different. However, since I'm recapping the show as it aired, I decided not to bring in post show information.

    When I can face it, I do need to go into Edit to correct Cassie's name, which I spelled as Cassy. I also need to correct a few imaging spellings to imagining. There are always touch ups that get missed the first time through. I hope you all can put up with them. Thanks.

    I love the recaps. I wish I had that kind of talent! As for spelling errors and typos...I seldom notice them. When I do notice them, I shrug it off because I make more than my fair share of both.

    Thanks, Arielflies. Keep 'em coming!

    I have been reading some free romances on the Kindle and you wouldn't believe the amount of errors. Just yesterday the author used "hear" for "here". The there, they're, their errors are always numerous. I don't notice anyone on here but I hate when I read back one of my own and see it.
