Thursday afternoon I went to Marrianne'sPunky-Doodle party with the intention of ordering an address stamp like the one above. I know what our address will be when we move into our house, but I had not considered one small detail. I am a math teacher, so that's my excuse for not knowing the answer to this question. My maiden name is also Clark, so that's another reason why I never really paid much attention to this rule in English class. Anyway, the nice sales lady, Lucy, was writing down all of the info needed for the stamp. At the very top of the stamp, it was to say the plural of our last name. That's when it hit me that I didn't know how to pluralize Morris. No one else at the party did either. A few ladies thought it was The Morris', but that didn't look right or sound right to me. I just went with "The Morris Family" to be on the safe side. I came home and tried to find the answer on-line. According to one grammar web-site, it would have es added to the end. The example on the site read, We are going to visit the Joneses. So will Dave and I be The Morrises?? Help me out!! Does anyone know the correct way to write this? I'm sure Dave's step-sister Wendy, the English teacher, can tell me!!
Okay, I just did a spellcheck. Morrises was highlighted and Morris's was the suggested spelling. That does look better......Is that the proper spelling????
