Excellent, Larry! Both PL-OK :thumbs: And I noticed that you've just simultaneously submitted the parts on the one hand of a character who went on a two-week bender, and one the other hand, a teetotaller. Thus Nature balances itself. :mrgreen:

Cheers,
Chris

Not sure what the accent is supposed to be :help: but I guess there would have been people from all sorts of odd places in Oz in those days :lol:
Thanks, Alan, PL-OK. :thumbs:

Out on the goldfields in those days, it was a case of:

"The homely tongue of Scotland and the brogue of Ireland blend,
With the dialects of England, from Berwick to Land's End..."


Cheers,
Chris

I did not try an Aussie accent. For which you should be eternally grateful.

Thanks, Todd
Great voice characterisations, Todd!

Jim Bentley is PL-OK.

With Box-o’-Tricks, there is just one word incorrect in two places ( 0:11 and 0:40 ) ... it's "Macquarie", not "McGuire" as you've pronounced it. The correct pronunciation of it is a "Mac", followed by "Quarry", as in to quarry stone, etc.

Thanks,
Chris

I could take care of that ever-so-meaty 'Somebody' role if you'd like!

Umm, this seems to be the same file as before, Todd, rather than a corrected one. Is it possible Stiffner the bartender has slipped you a mickey? :wink:
