This is really funny to me, what a difference just four years makes!

Listen to the first recording I ever did for just a few seconds: https://ia800303.us.archive.org/1/items/seaboard_parish_1505_librivox/seaboard_parish_34_macdonald_128kb.mp3

Now, listen to my most recent recording for just a few seconds: https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/sirrogerdecoverley_01_addison_128kb.mp3

Can you tell if it's even me? :lol:

The times have changed for sure :lol:

My goodness, that IS some change, Elijah! :mrgreen:

My change is mostly around the sound quality 8-) though my voice has deepened a little over the last 11 years. Plus no slightly-stuffy nose, and I'm a little better at pronouncing LibRIvox after saying it a few thousand times.

There's honestly no such thing as a stupid question -- but I'm afraid I can't rule out giving a stupid answer : : To Posterity and Beyond!

I agree. Your voice has grown slightly deeper and the sound is much better. I didn't notice the stuffy nose though, probably for the better lol.

Thanks

Cori, at that rate of voice change (hereinafter designated "delta-V"), do you think we might expect a Marlene Dietrich contralto anytime soon? :lol:

For a very generous definition of 'soon', you betcha. I'm looking forward to those changes very much, too, my older lady voice will be coming in about the time I can legally work on Miss Marple! 8-)

And over the same period, your voice, as well as Elijah's, will probably lift slightly. Age-related changes are fascinating!

I’m relying on it!

These Ladies-Of-A-Certain-Age detectives always have a colonial gardener of obscure origins as a dramatic foil.

I pride myself on my obscurity! ;)
