Judy is correct. The sign printer made a mistake and we went ahead and used it. Our apologies to y’all.

Bill Stanley says:

Ya’ll is a contraction of ya all, where y’all is a contraction of you all. I choose y’all when I speak my native Texan.

Judy AKA "Spookannie" says:

Good one. I’ve always written this as y’all, since it is a contraction of you + all. And please don’t tell me this doesn’t exist, since I grew up saying it!
