Setting it up for you.

Edit: All set.
I have added Larry as DPL, after the discussion in the previous book. He can always be taken out if he is unavailable.

THANK YOU SO MUCH, Larry!!! I got started today, and it was definitely easier for me recording AWAY from my big windows! I didn't have to run the noise-reduction; that was a first! So we begin with my trademark section 0, ha ha. Then the first story is a famous Arabic folktale found in Africa and in India too, and the long second one is a hodge-podge of like three or four different folktales all smushed together, ha ha. With frogs! But the frogs don't go "ribbit" in Swahili... they go "k-r-r-r-r" ha ha. I hope you enjoy!

These are all PL OK

Animal sounds in other languages are interesting.
In Korea, frogs go Gaegol-Gaegol and dogs go mong-mong

SO COOL: I love learning about animal sounds in different languages. I've been working on chain tales, and sometimes the whole point of a chain tale is just to pile up animal sounds (think: Old MacDonald Had a Farm... and there are others like it!)

The holidays have really messed up my daily routines, ha ha, but I finally got to record a couple stories today. One of them is a great Arabic folktale; as Stigand promised in the introduction, there are some Arabic folktales in here, like this story about the young thief and the sultan. :-)

I've been able to carve out a little recording time myself.
Usually I try to edit in the same session, but this time I just did a recording marathon. Likely, times like this will be scarce for awhile, but other fun stuff! Oh, I did finish my role in the Plautus play, but Sonia found one little change she would like. Nothing gets past that lady. :roll:

I will have a houseful of guests until the 30th, so if you finish in that time there will be a slight delay in cataloguing.
Merry Christmas!🎄

A bit under the weather here, but better than my grandson who celebrated Christmas Day with an appendectomy.

These are all PL OK, and I did enjoy Shani and Tabak a lot. Also, the long one about Ali, and all the number sevens....

Oh my gosh, what a Christmas! I hope your grandson was feeling better so that he could celebrate New Year's Eve after a Christmas like that! Ouch!!!

I finally got back to everyday life and finished up the final sections. One of my all-time favorite chain tales is in here -- the story of why cats and women are such friends. There's also a "lion meets man for the first time" story, which is another of my favorite story types. :D
