Greetings -

A quick note on Chapter 58:

I am wondering if this was marked Ready for Spot PL by mistake or if the wrong file were uploaded to the MW. The audio level of the file in the MW is 9 dB over the limit which has lead to overmodulation and audio clipping. The actual reading is well done.

Lomond has a mystery here.

One last note:

From all of us at Lomond's Listening Laboratory...Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Don't let that piece of cloth covering part of your face mask the joy of this season.

God bless,

Lomond

May that cloth assure you of many more holidays to celebrate with your dearest ones as well as all of us here who so greatly appreciate your support.

Blessings to you...

Greetings -

This chapter and Chapters 48 and 97 easily meet the standard we have come to expect from mleigh. Definitely PL OK.

Chapter 48 was one of the sweeter poems in the book.

Lomond
Thank you for all your kind words.

I agree with you on #48.

Have a Merry Christmas.

Add these two chapters to the list of PL OK efforts for this book. Well done.

Did you read Chapter 87 without thinking of Tom Sawyer and whitewashing the fence?
