"Two Days In August"

Between Chuck (who reads directions) and me (who dives in without reading directions), we have managed to record my poem. I hope that you are able to listen to it and that you enjoy it!

Thank you for your kind words of encouragement, your caps-lock congratulations and your enthusiastic support!!!

And today, thanks for listening...

Note: Can’t see the little embedded audio bar above? Just click on this link which will take you to a page outside Blogger, where the audio file is stored. BTW, it should begin playing immediately. Thanks!

Update: Thanks to feedback from DancingMorganMouse, I learned that something is glitchy with both the embedded audio bar and the hot link in the Note above. It may have something to do with different browsers (more on that tomorrow). So, until I can get it more streamlined and reliable, try clicking on this link. It will take you to a page where you need to click on a blue link which says “756.2K” under “Advanced Audio Coding” on the lower right. Good luck and thanks again!

Second Update: I may have identified an additional factor in why some of you have been unable to listen to the audio clip. (where the audio file is presently stored) has been experiencing some “System Slowness”. I don’t know if this is rare or common, but it might be complicating things.

bugger, can't get to it either way.

Hi DMM -
I really appreciate your alerting me to the problem.
I was so disappointed that neither the audio bar nor the second link worked for you.

I have scoured Blogger Help and Groups and it may have something to do with which browser one uses.

I hope the link and instructions under "Update" allow you to listen in! It's just so darned cumbersome and inelegant compared to that lovely little audio bar!

Hmm. For some reason, I have a huge lump in my throat now and feel like crying. It's either from
a) Hearing your voice
b) The awesome poem
c) All of the above
Well done - I love the poem and it was so exciting to hear it!

Dear Ronnie -
You made my day!!!
As soon as I read your comment I got all choked up!
I am doing a happy dance right now - and into the foreseeable future!
Thank you for your kind words!

I tried everything and I still can't pull it up


BTW, your web page looks like a combination of the 2 sites when I access it. What a hoot!

Hi Jeff -
Thanks for listening and thanks for the compliment!

Hi Gail -
Oh dear!
I really thought that the third link (under "Update") was going to solve the problem for everyone. I figured it would move folks off of the Blogger platform and get them directly into
Thanks for trying!

A combination of the two? This is very interesting!

Bugger, bugger - I also can't get it to work either way!!! Heckit. I was so looking forward to it...

Might have to go over to Ronnie's to have a listen...
