Please listen to the opening words of 19 again. You say I repeat "of" at .04, but instead of "of of" I actually said "of the" as written and that's what I hear. Nevertheless, if you think my "the" sounds too much like a second "of", I will fix it. Let me know.

You are correct: I thought I did hear "of of." I will mark this PL OK and thank you.

Hello - I am a new reader and would be happy to read a chapter or two wherever needed in this project. I can start ASAP if that's helpful. (My one minute test was posted yesterday and I believe was within the specs). Thanks.

Well good afternoon to you Tom! Pleased to hear that you passed your 1-minute test and that it was as you mentioned "within the specs".
Happy to hear that you would like to record in this section. There are sections that you can read, they are the ones that are marked open. It is your choice , just which ones appeal to you. Please take a look and when you find something you like, post in this area which one(s) you would like to read.
Sorry for the delayed reply and for not picking any chapters in this project. I ended up injured in the hospital and will be recuperating for a few months and unable to jump on this project. I was ready to go but life happens. I hope to catch you on a project in the future when I rejoin the world. :) :) :)

Hi:

Here is Section 27 with a time of 12:44:71. I have amended the ending as the beginning is correct I believe. If not let me know. :)

April, would you check amended sections 19 and 20? They're not in the MW. I've already DPLed nevertheless and they're ok. Many thanks :D :D

Rita,
I do not hear a dog barking in section 20.
Section 19 does actually not have the word "of" repeated though it is difficult to discern the word "the" so if it could be recorded again it would be best.

Sorry - I only meant that neither section has been posted to the MW. Thanks!
