The Startling Adventures of Baron von Munchausen... PL OK. Very startling :shock:
I am butting in here to say it sounds like this story about the lion and the crocodile is one of many stories contained in The Startling Adventures . . . . So I am wondering if the story title should be used instead of the book title? Other stories could follow.

Both are used in the story. I was just abbreviating here.

Back when I was a kid in German class, our German teacher often regaled us with Baron Munchausen adventures. According to him there are thousands of BM stories. He said that making up new outlandish stories was what Germans did for fun on cold Winter evenings. But, maybe only a few have appeared in printed media.

As for Michele's comment about other adventures being forthcoming: I wondered about that myself. I even thought about recording a couple more, but I think seeing "wj" in the names of multiple files would screw things up; i.e., newer ones would overlay older ones. Any comments on that?

It's nice to be working with you two classy ladies again.

If you include the story title, that will work e.g. cb021_lionandcrocodile_wj

What had been his eye’s delight, his eyes craved to see again and his ingratitude punished him by inducing him to believe it to be more beautiful than it had ever been. Soren Kierkegaard 1843
