Please stop making plural nouns into possessives; your English teacher is spinning in her grave.
In the south, those forms aren't possessives, they are contractions. :wink:

Full disclosure: I too am a Grammar Nazi (trained by Sister Mary Leo and many of her kindred sister yardstick ninjas). :mrgreen:

When you mean to say, more than one Jeep, it is Jeeps. Never an apostrophe unless it is singular possessive. Like, a Jeep's radiator.
And no, that is not a contraction. Those are made from two words. Like Can't (can not) do that.
I can't help it; my Mother was an English teacher. Of course, she never actually taught us kids anything; ask her how to spell Hippopotamus and she always said "How the Hell should I know? Look it up."
Possessives formed when it should be plural were her pet peeve and she would chew out store managers on a weekly basis for advertising "BANANA'S for 39 Cents a Pound". Not kidding.
Dave, at least she didn't use a ruler on our hands; she used a ping pong paddle on our butts.
Which is why I tell guys to look up stuff in their TMs; they will learn more. than if I just told them.
I know, I have been scolded; that makes guys mad.
