Re: [SOLO] The Australian Explorers, by George Grimm - kit

“Sir Thomas Mitchell's Four Expeditions” chapter has been recorded and is currently being edited. It’s a long one, hopefully won’t have to split it though.

Re: OPEN[PLAY]Civilian Clothes by Buchanan - thw

so here is Mrs Smythe, hopefully suitably vampy-femme-fataly enough for your purposes. I figured, recording in a red silken négligé, cognac in hand, would help matters along. :mrgreen: Sonia Wonderfully done. I quickly checked to see - er, no, never mind.

Re: Interesting ... and irrelevant

Preliminary studies on deceased household pets contra-indicate the recycling of Mammalia and Reptilia.
