PL Notes on A Dog's Tale.
What a sad, sad story. Not a typical Twain tale but yes it is a love story, too.
One thing strikes me kind of strange, that chuckle at 22:57. Up to you, just let me know your plans.

Thanks for contributing. Would you please PL mine?

A Humble Romance, Section 2.

Dag nabbit!
I kept listening for a hitch or skip in your recitation.... and heard nary a one.
This is a perfect recitation, Michele.
A good story and a great delivery of that story.

Wow!

In summary: This section is PL OK!

Thanks for saying that. I truly loved this unusual story. I've only made one comment on your Dog's Tale, waiting for your reply. Entries are coming in very slowly right now, I suspect it's because of the politics, busy holidays, and Covid worries. I'm trying to find enthusiasm myself for anything but nail biting.

Please let the chuckle stay: it was inadvertent but clearly(?) the desire of the author to elicit such a response.

Anzia Yezierska has only one story so far in LV, so this will be a nice addition. I look forward to listening.
