Canada in War-Paint, by Ralph W. Bell ( - 1918)
There is no attempt made in the little sketches which this book contains to deal historically with events of the war. It is but a small Souvenir de la guerre—a series of vignettes of things as they struck me at the time, and later. I have written of types, not of individuals, and less of action than of rest. The horror of war at its worst is fit subject for a master hand alone. (Summary by the author, Capt. Ralph W. Bell)

Sure. Once we have an MC, I'll register those claims.

Welcome aboard. Once we have an MC I'll do word counts and let you know what looks good.

In the meantime, a couple of things.
Before you start recording, please go to the 1-minute test forum viewforum.php?f=21 and post a test. This is not an audition, but a chance to ensure all of your technical settings are correct before you start recording. If you post here with a link to your test, I'll pop over and listen to it ASAP.

ALso, how would you like to be listed in the catalog? It can be your username, your real name, or anything you like.

You can just list me as Parker Colyar in the catalog. Here is the link to my test: viewtopic.php?f=21&t=93999

Got it.

The shortest section looks like section 6 "Our Farm" (about 750 words), so I'll hold that one for you if you like. It's not the happiest of topics, so if you prefer something different, "Minnie & Family" is about 850 words.

Our farm works great for me. Thank you so much

This is set up.

Sorry it took so long. I was expecting others to pick it up at any time, but no one did. :?

Thank you very much! I was beginning to wonder...

But, I don't seem to have access to the MW. And while you're fixing that, Beeswaxcandle has volunteered to DPL :)

Gah! I used to be on the ball. I can no longer say I'm detail-oriented - or at least, that I catch that stuff. :roll:

Beeswax is in as DPL, you're in as BC, and I'm in as MC :P

Excellent, thank you! :) MW filled out, initial assignments made, I think we're ready for "Readers Wanted" (short stories)
