Dear Rapunzelina,

before I send my next recording, just to be sure, when submitting a Mother Goose Nursery Rhyme, does one credit "Mother Goose" as the author?

Thank you, Winston, this is such a sweet thing to say! And thank you for the lovely poems you are offering! (marked PL OK in the MW!)


Thank you for your recording, Ike! All great, I just left a note to myself to fix filename at cataloguing (it's missing an underscore _ )


:D

That's alright, Ike! Fixing a filename is easy at cataloguing.

I shall keep your recording for the next collection, or feel free to re-upload it when it's open, since you've already offered three poems for this month :9:

Thank you, Ike! I did listen to it, and it's lovely and PL OK! So it will just need a re-upload with the new filename for the new collection next month; that is, in a few days :D
