Re: Solo Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollope-mas

You are certainly enjoying your summer! So glad! There is an extra "only" at 9:45 in Chapter X, if you want to remove it, although "only" is clearly implied by that sentence. You are right that the hurricane does not affect us here, except for deliveries from that part of the country which are delay...

Re: Solo Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollope-mas

I certainly did enjoy. Chapters 8 and 9 are marked PL OK.

Re: Solo Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollope-mas

Complicated indeed! Do you know what "and he points away to the East, where our dear allies the French are supposed to live" is supposed to refer to? I can't imagine a location for Gatherum Castle which would have France to the east, so suspect I'm missing an allusion to something. One edit you'll w...

Re: Solo Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollope-mas

Chapter 7 is PL OK.

So nice to retreat into Trollope's simpler world for a little bit. Ours seems to have had more than the usual share of insanity and inhumanity this past week.

Re: Solo Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollope-mas

Chapters 5 and 6 are marked PL OK. Poor Mr. Smith! Being upstaged by Mrs. Proudie would be painful. I so enjoy your Miss Dunstable. I don't remember taking much notice of her when I read these novels to myself, but now I look forward to encountering her. I would have loved to hear her opinion of Mr....

Re: Solo Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollope-mas

Chapter 5 has a couple of phrases missing. Both sound like edits, so I suspect you have them recorded already: Missing at 12:47 "What letter, Fanny?"....It seems a little odd, because Justinia is speaking, and she already knows about the letter. Maybe that one is an error in the text? Missing at 23:...

Re: Solo Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollope-mas

A Harry Potter play! We've all been wondering how they manage the Quidditch scenes. Hope it was good and that Helen enjoyed her birthday. Chapters 3 and 4 are PL OK. Quite a lesson in the mechanics of peer pressure. My daughter is going to be a registered nurse in the cardiac unit of a university ho...

Re: Solo Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollope-mas

Sardonic indeed! I love Miss Dunstable, though--probably more so because I don't have to risk her uncovering any of my prejudices or blind spots. Chapter 3 has a repeat of "some first-class official men do that" at 28:24. My daughter is going to use her new degree as a Registered Nurse in a cardiac ...

Re: Solo Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollope-mas

Aha! The site is finally back up. Chapter 1 and 2 are now marked PL OK. Trollope found his witty stride in this one early. I'm laughing already.

Hope you enjoyed your trip! I'm off to Tucson to celebrate my daughter's graduation and new job. Be back Tuesday.

Re: Solo Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollope-mas

Hope you have a wonderful time on your cruise! When you get back, you might want to make a change to chapter 1. At 11:53, "quite enough" is repeated in the text, but only appears once in the audio recording. That's not the kind of precision many readers aim for, but from past experience, I think you...

I remember thinking that same thing about the Little House at Allington -- that I never wanted it t end.

Re: [Solo] Dr. Thorne by Anthony Trollope - mas

Yes! I would love to continue with the next book! I was hoping you were going to do it. Should get to this last chapter tonight or tomorrow. I'm sure distances here are a bit different than you think of them. Once we got in the car to "drive east" for a week, not knowing exactly how far we would get...

Re: [Solo] Dr. Thorne by Anthony Trollope - mas

Chapters 45 and 46 sounded great and I'm marked them PL OK. It does sound like a crowded time ahead! I won't be surprised if I don't see that last chapter for a while. I hope all goes well for the meetings and ceremonies and parties and the wedding. And I hope your new vicar is a blessing for the co...

Re: [Solo] Dr. Thorne by Anthony Trollope - mas

Thank you! Easter was wonderful! Besides a very joyful Easter service, my brother and his wife came to visit for the weekend. "And a good time was had by all." Hope your Easter was as wonderful.

Chapter 44 was wonderful, too. Marked PL OK.
