Oh dear, yes it did get missed in a day with multiple posts. So sorry, Rachel! I'd be pleased to sign you up for those sections. Thanks for understanding and checking back in. :oops:

Oh, no problem, it happens to everybody once in a while! :)

One question - I meant to ask this earlier, but how would you read this?

"I'll pay the price, as you can see
In Yankee money, or £. s. d."

I know nothing about European money - I'm pretty sure the first symbol is pounds, and the S might be for shillings? but I have no clue about the D (I thought it was pence but that doesn't rhyme.) Can anyone help?

Thanks!
Rachel

Good question, Rachel. You were guessing correctly. I finally found the answer by searching "pound s. d." And Wikipedia has the following explanation.

"£sd (occasionally written Lsd) is the popular name for the pre-decimal currencies once common throughout Europe, especially in the British Isles and hence in several countries of the British Empire and subsequently the Commonwealth. The abbreviation originates from the Latin currency denominations librae, solidi, and denarii.[1] In the United Kingdom, which was one of the last to abandon the system, these were referred to as pounds, shillings, and pence (pence being the plural of penny). When spoken it was pronounced "ell-ess-dee", or more commonly "pounds, shillings and pence".

That makes sense of the rhyme, but since that pronunciation has such different connotations now, I wonder if it would work to say "pound-es-dee" instead? I'll let you choose on that since you have a lot more experience on LV. :)

Sections 17 and 18 are PL OK!

That ending makes me wish I could find the next book mentioned: "Teddy-B and Teddy-G, The Bear Detectives." But I don't find a digital copy of it online. Maybe I'm just missing it somewhere?? All I find are copies for sale from $500 - $1200! And some far-flung hard copies at libraries listed on WorldCat.

In fact, there are several more Roosevelt Bears books, but the only other digital copy I can find is "The Traveling Bears Across the Sea" (here: https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=osu.32435068383330;view=1up;seq=5). And that is just excerpted chapters from this current book we are recording.

So, unless anyone has more ideas for finding digital versions of the other books, I will have to bid the Roosevelt Bears goodbye for now. (After finishing this book!)

That is disappointing. Really love these little guys. Maybe one of our outstandingly clever MC's can find it for us.

Chapter 11 very disturbing and unsettling and maybe a foreshadowing of future world events. Hardly kids stuff.....

Thanks Betty! I have those files ready for PL... probably on Monday as today we are celebrating my mom's birthday today.

You have me curious about chapter 11, as I haven't read that far in the book. I suppose there were already tensions building up between that country the the country of the author back then that were reflected in his writing?

Thank you!
Thanks for reminding me and posting these recordings! I will get to proof-listening soon.

Could you also please give me a total time for each of these files? That way we can double-check that nothing got chopped off by the uploader.

And I noticed that the files are not named according to this project's format with section number instead of name and with the 128kb at the end (e.g. rooseveltbearsabroad_01_eaton_128kb.mp3). But I think our MC can fix that for us this time. (Correct me if I'm wrong, David O.)
Theses files have been renamed on the server and the MW links updated.

Sections 11 and 15 are PL OK, Betty!
From my travels in that country and studies of its history, chapter 11 sounds like a rather accurate slice of its troubled history up to that point. My dear friends there come from very strong and resilient stock!

I guess I'll need someone else to PL the section I recorded?
