...When you read a story you like, and you think it would be a good one to record, but when you look at the text again you notice it's got the word "rural"? :lol: That's gonna take some practice!
You'd love "Binsey Poplars" by Gerard Manley Hopkins. Last two lines:

Rural scene, a rural scene,
Sweet especial rural scene.
How about this is our next Weekly Poem? :lol: :P

Due to possible major life changes, I am unable to do LV much. Please be patient with delayed projects.

... when you have a backlog of PLing, and you're really looking forward to hearing all of it, AND you have all evening free to listen, but you also have a splitting headache? :cry:

I have a free day to do some recording and my elderly chihuahua/minpin mix (minhuahua) who has collapsing trachea and is prone to fits of goose-honk-like coughing, doesn't want to be anywhere but in my presence. She also has cancer and I don't know how long she will be with us (she's 16 1/2) so I'm rolling with it. Maybe she'll head off to the bed or living room in a bit, meantime I'm doing a bit of prooflistening instead of recording....

Seems to be better now. But it wasn't just LV, for sure, it was my connection.

8:00 am Sunday morning.

Construction crew across the street off for the weekend.

Raining so no one is using lawn mowers and leaf blowers in the neighborhood.

Elderly wheezing dog asleep in another room.

No audible traffic from nearby airport and train tracks.

Housemates still asleep and planning lazy (quiet) morning in bed.

Perfect time to record.

KABOOM!!

Thunderstorm!!

Oh well, there is always prooflistening,

Colleen, getting back in bed herself.
Aww, so sorry Colleen! :( but the way you told it was just hilarious. :lol:

When you're finally able to make it to the zoom meeting, then you open your computer and it first has to do all sorts of updates. :help: After 13 minutes: 9% complete... :roll:

Ugh. I have been in that exact situation, except it wasn't a LV zoom meeting, but one for work! :shock:

Just to show that they can computerise anything, they’ve even managed to automate the sobering up of the long-luncher before the mid-afternoon pitch meeting. :wink:

When you've been longing to record since you woke up this morning, but life is moving too fast right now, and you have to make that phone call, and that one, and that one, and cancel that membership, and get information on that loan, and make that transfer, and... :?
