Hi, Benderca!
I'm just trying to find someone to help me pronounce "Wargeilah" in "The Wargeilah Handicap" and "Booligal" in "Hay and Hell and Booligal." Any suggestions?

Sounds like it's 'boo-lih-ghul". Found these on YouTube:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=heQ4QOQncew "Booligal Sheep Races 2012"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYpvMhtMgP8 :28 she says Booligal "Booligal Sheep Races: Wicked & Weird Around the World"

Good luck finding Wargeilah. Can't seem to find anywhere they say the place out loud! :shock: I bet some librivoxer has an Aussie connection to say it for us.

Thanks, Erin! Sheep racing! That gives me a great idea of the Booligal culture. I'll see if I can bring that into my reading... :D

Thank you both :thumbs:

I also couldn't find Wargeilah, but i would go with a pronunciation of something like war-gee-lah (with a hard g like in game) :) thank you!

Hi! May I have #14 - Song of the Artesian Water? It's a really beautiful poem.

I'd like section 23, The Passing of Gundagai. What a scoundrel!
