Grammar: Apostrophes.

So this is how the damn apostrophe is used for plural possession.  It would be nice if spell checkers stopped highlighting this as an error.

Rule 2
Use the apostrophe to show possession. Place the apostrophe before the s to show singular possession.

Examples:
one boy's hat
Ms. Chang's house

NOTE: Although names ending in s or an s sound are not required to have the second s added in possessive form, it is preferred.

Examples:
Mr. Jones's golf clubs
Texas's weather


Rule 4
To show plural possession, make the noun plural first. Then immediately use the apostrophe.

Examples:
two actresses' hats
two children's hats
the Changs' house
