O Dear...

I have laryngitis. I've had it since Tuesday. I have no idea what this will mean for all of us...but...My fingers are crossed that I'll be able to record tomorrow.

Think happy thoughts...

Update, Dateline, Nov 3:
I can talk but only for about 10 minutes at a time. I'm going to start putting the 'Cast together in bits and pieces and we'll hope it'll be done by the usual weekday.

The doctors have no idea what's wrong with me.

At times like this I wish I smoked so I'd at least have an excuse. Of course, the scary excuse is this one.

Episode Seventy-five: Isn't it Romantic

Today I chat with Madame Professor Elizabeth Klett about Romantic Poetry (that's capital R, not romantic--ain't nothing lovey-dovey about our poems today).

You'll hear from Wordsworth, Coleridge, Shelley, and Keats. Not bad for a night's work, eh?

Many thanks to Sandra who sent me the box of Autumn leaves. You have no idea how much that meant to me.

You can see more of my SOAR times at my other blog too.

Episode 74: SOARing in Michigan

I tried my best to eliminate the background noise in the interviews you'll hear. I found it easier to hear on headphones on my machine.
I hope it works for you too.

What you'll hear about: My Bag!

DeeDee's Racoon

Leslie and her fiber!Janel Laidman's Class (Chameleon Color Works!)

Jennie of the Lace and Upcoming Book

And our very own Laura with her hand-dyed, hand-spun yarn:

Enchanting Juno, FiberGal, Amy at and the very first pattern I ever saw on her site (love--LOVE I tell you!).

Lyrics to Meg's song "The Spinning Wheel" here, though the recordings I found were pale in comparison to her voice...

And don't forget to pick up a NEW Haute Men of CraftLit T-shirt...I already have!

Episode Seventy-three: A Haute Man is Good to Find

The September donors who will receive sock yarn from CheekyRedHead or a CraftLit charm from Jen Minnis Designs are:
Beverly of CT's name was drawn to receive Sock Yarn! (YAY! General rowdiness!)
Lauren of CA's name was drawn to receive the CraftLit charm! (Huzzah! Much rejoicing!)

We'll be getting those things out to you asap.

Today we end Tristan and Isolde (sob). We ALSO have a treat from Listener Jen Massey who recorded a retelling of Tristan and Isolde by Robin Williamson in a book called The Wise and Foolish Tongue.

We ALSO (o there's so much!) will soon have a series of Haute Men of CraftLit goodies, again, thanks to Jen Minnis—our resident artsy type, Erin, Dawn and the irrepressible Heidi—humor wordsmiths extraordinarĂ©. Bless their talent!

And Kate, member of The Boogie Knights, singers of "Tristan The Knight So Brave"! I LOVE the member names on this page!

And next week...SOAR, then...Frankenstein!!!
