"plenty of time to say your thany yous too Dave before he retires" kind of thing.

No apostrophe is needed at all. So it should be "say your thanks yous...."

'thank you's

no apostrophes, just speech marks

No apostrophes, it's just a plain plural.

Change the "too" to "to" as well!

theinsider · 01/07/2008 14:55

And "thank" not "thany".

And capitals in relevant places too.

Just use:

Plenty of time to say thank you to dave...

LadyPercy · 01/07/2008 19:26

Cheers - it's in
