There were actually a whole slew of Aesop's Fables done over the Jamboree weekend - most my first-time LibriVoxers, which I think is an excellent thing! They were coming thick and fast toward the end, so I can't blame you for not realizing they were arriving, but here they all are!

Those fables are more addictive than crack cocaine! :shock: (Not that I would know!!) :shock:

Exactly how many fables are there in the total collection, Chip? I'd count 'em up myself but don't have enough fingers and toes!

*Everything* is smaller in other countries. :D I remember the first time I stood on an average US crossroads (OK, I was young and impressionable then), I felt like a dwarf (or whatever the PC equivalent is). And I still feel like a dwarf every time I go to a US restaurant and someone near me orders a burger - usually they're as big as our big dining plates... but what I was getting at was the dryer. I so long for the warmer weather so I can dry outside again... just another couple of weeks now.

And yes, JC not JV... I should go to bed. It's 2:30, but the two mad roosters from the little farm at the end of our street (yes, I live in Malta's capital - don't ask) have just started up and there'll be no peace for at least half an hour now.

And you really didn't want to know all this. Night night! :)
