Hi Tricia:
Due to unforeseen circumstances and a complete computer meltdown, I am unable to complete the sections I asked to do. Could you please put them out there for someone else. I apologize profusely but stuff happens. I am going to a friends to fix the issue pending. Thanks

Sandra

That's fine - thanks for letting me know! Adrian has already said he's willing to take on any orphans, so while I will miss hearing your lovely voice, the project won't suffer a meltdown. ;)

I hope you're up and running again soon!

Doing this much made me realize how much I miss my recording. Have to buy a new laptop and get going again.

Thanks Tricia.

Parts of it had my mouth watering; parts of it (beating a pig to death) were quite objectionable. The story of the first roast pig was hilarious! :)

Thanks! PL OK!

PL OK!

I see some of those complaints today. Thankfully, some I have avoided as a wife. My husband's pre-marital friends are his sacred right. :lol:

Thanks! PL OK.

Yes, much repetition in this one. There were a few differences, though.

"Her fine, spacious person filled the scene." Is that a clever way to say she was a fat woman? LOL!

Interesting what he says about Congreve, which I've been recording elsewhere in this forum.

Thank you! I never got into these plays. I guess I'm one of the sticks-in-the-mud he's talking about. :lol:
