These are both PL OK! :thumbs: Super speedy!

If you are looking for some more DR characters to read, I think Dab-Dab the duck in the Dr Dolittle project would be lovely for you!

Thank you. :) I'll look at that. I did look through quite a few DR, but most OPEN roles are male, (which I don't mind, but...)

At Beth's request, claiming Szezcpansky (or what's his name). I found only eight short one or two word phrases. Is that really it?

Thanks! Yes, he doesn't talk all that much - but everyone talks about him quite a bit!

And you are of course welcome to take other roles as well - there's a bunch of Workmen in Ch 11, a Blacksmith in Ch 14, a Farmer in Ch 5, etc...

Beth, since I don't know this piece, would you mind assigning me a cluster of short roles and I will get to them soon? :hmm:

Thank you!
Many thanks to you! Sorry it was such a small part after all, but he's critical to the plot in the whole second half of the book! This is PL OK! :9:
