    Everyone likes good grammar, but I have heard all of a suddent, and all of the sudden. Kevin, you are one writing it the column, thank goodness we get your honest comments

    1. Kevin

      Thanks, Nancy, all of the sudden, I am not sure which is the correct thing to say!:)

  2. Teresa

    Kevin, you do a wonderful job, and you have very GOOD grammar. Too bad we cannot all be as perfect as Martha. Thanks for all you do.

    This probably is one of those numerous phrases that vary from region to region. I say “all of a sudden”. I grew up in northeast Kansas.

    I always forgive grammar (grammatical?) mistakes because I want people to extend the same grace to me. If I use the phrase at all, I say, “all of a sudden,” but I don’t think there’s a hard-and-fast rule either way. As a homeschool mom I can promise you that it’s not addresed in any of my children’s English textbooks.

    Please don’t every apologize to us about being in a photo with your baby. I love the picture of three different generations together. It would’ve been perfect if your mom had been in the picture. Aster is so adorable! It’s hard to believe she’ll be a year old soon.

    this Buckeye has always used A sudden so I am thinking maybe those years in the arab country may have influenced THE sudden. hahahaha

    actually want to recommend your family have generational photos taken while the opportunity is there. we had 5 generations and while different members got photos with our 5th member the altogether one never came about. Sadly.

    another challenge here with being able to sign up with the amish365 PREMIUM. I hope others are not being discouraged by this and a bad result for your campaign. I think it is so ironic that one of your readers was able to get on prior to the official opening and I cannot get on now. what am I doing ???

    I am from East TN and have never heard anyone say “all of the sudden”. I had some VERY picky English teachers all through school (even college) and I feel certain that at least one of those dozen or so would have corrected us on this. Perhaps it is a regional type of thing to say “all of the sudden”
