  1. Okay, I LOVED it–the sound effects, the voice (is that really you, Lori of the sexy/smart voice?), and the story. So witty and fun. Looking forward to more stories. Are you a technology person at your day job?

    1. Can you see me blushing from upstate?! It was really fun to do & with encouragement like that, I will have to do more! 🙂 My day job is mom/backyard farmer/writer but I’ve been in the media arts for many years. (I’m also a recovering independent filmmaker if that explains anything. 😉 ) Thank you so much for your kind words & for taking the time to listen! Made my day!!!

      1. Little indy stuff. Film festival-y. Arty. I still enjoy audio-visual storytelling & blogging lets me keep a hand in that artform as well. 🙂 On completely unrelated note– my potatoes were up yesterday–yay! Still think it’s too damp & cool but fingers crossed they’ll make it. Good luck with yours!!!

      2. I almost cried when my husband said there was a frost alert last night. I gambled early this week and put out ALL of the tomato plants I grew from seed this winter. Looks like they’re okay, too!

        When you say indie/arty were you doing fictional stories or documentary?

        Once I was the voice for a bitchy doll who could speak in a film short for MTV. I stayed under the table and read my lines. It was so much fun.

      3. All kinds–I love storytelling in any genre almost. We did *not* get a frost alert but 50 degrees this morning was chilly enough for me!!! I refuse to put the heater back on, tho. Just add another cat to the bottom of the bed, that should do the trick, I always say! 🙂

    1. Robbie you are the best!!!! I am so happy/relieved that you like it & look forward to doing more so you can listen to a duckcast while potting up stuff! I also really appreciate your kind words. 😀 And now my secret is out– I’m an old-school “hyphenate” as we used to call it in the 90’s. We indy film folks had to learn *everything*. When you’re working with a micro budget, you gotta get creative. So I dabbled a lot not just writing but in all the “above the line” functions– directing/editing/sound design. As we’ve said before, any art feeds all art. Thank you so much, blog buddy for giving me 3 minutes of your very busy day!!!

  3. that was excellent……… and, as I suspected………. you don’t sound anything like I expected you to…….. so much for my psychic abilities.
    You were right….. it was funny, and you read it very well…….. having done a few of these, I’m wondering which take that was……. loved the sound effects.

    Basically, you rule!

    1. Terry, you r 2 funny yourself!!! Now I am wondering what radio shows you may have done (mysteries, perhaps?!) I will let u (&, I guess) the whole blogosphere in on a secret– this is not one take (I’m certainly not that good!) I usually do a couple readings of large chunks and then pick the best. I don’t overdo it because that makes it stale but I definitely make mistakes so editing is required. It takes much longer to edit/add sound fx than to actually perform the reading. Ergo, I won’t be able to post daily so no worries that you’ll be getting overrun with duck-related updates. 😉 Thanks again so very much for taking the time to listen & so much, too, for the early follow. 😀

  4. I will faithfully be following your podcasts. How often shall I look for them? I loved it. You are definitely older, more sophisticated and experienced, but essentially the same creative, edgy kid I knew in high school creative writing class!

  5. Off the road, for the time being, only to find you have branched out to podcasting. Like your voice. Since “sexy” has already been used (don’t tell my wife), I’ll use the term sophisticated. 😉

    I had a similar problem when I tried to buy printer ink from the HP online store, they declined the transaction saying something was wrong with my debit card. Forget the notion, I used the said card to buy a couple thousand dollars worth of premium hay for the horses two hours earlier. And, that I had more than enough money in my said account to afford $29.00 worth of ink. HP must’ve overlooked I have a lot of their branded, high-end blade server and other computer equipment. Turned out to be their payment processor messed up big time.

    1. I’ve been traveling, too, and just got back to my blog mail to read your kind words!!! I have a feeling we are not alone in experiencing some frustration with those financial algos intent on organizing our spending ways. 😉 Thanks so much for the encouragement–I am hoping to get back in front of the microphone later this week. I hope you will give this new blog a follow if you’re so inclined–I promise I will not inundate you with constant updates. 🙂

      1. A follow-up on the continuing saga to buy ink from the HP online store. This time I decided to be smart and use my PayPal account to purchase ink. Again, they declined the order. I talked with PayPal – they agreed something goofy is going on with them for them to refuse all of my payment options. Either their account database has been corrupted, or there’s bug in the algo’s they’re using. My HP account rep that handles my business equipment says he’ll inquire for me.
