    Question Question

    Can you please in form me if this statement is of correct grammar, or someones made up theory?

    "I like to check my e-mail of a morning and then take a jog in the park."

    key words in question are: "of a morning"

    Is this correct grammar?

    Thank You,
    Joe V.

    I think it's better to say: I like checking my e-mails in the morning and then go jogging in the park.

    Re: Question

    You can put the same sentence in the following way:

    I like to check my e-mail every morning and then take a jog in the park.

    May some senior member explain how the below sentence is different from the above one?

    I like checking my e-mail every morning and then taking a jog in the park.

    Re: Question

    Thank you,
    for your input on my Q.

    The statement was verbal and not in script, does this have any bearing on your opinion matter regarding the quoted statement?

    Re: Question

    The grammar's fine to me, but 'of a morning' may sound a bit old-fashioned to some. I might say it, but I wouldn't write it.
