    Default rtf fundraiser for Mr. Atkinson (not Mr. Acker Bilk) audio book (GDG)

    Our Founder's mellifluous reading of this article on medieval canine history in the native tongues (plural) would inarguably rate as Grammy Award-worthy! We also need to have Polmaise providing background vocals (Robt., where art thou?). So who'll make the first pledge for gyttyng 'er doone?

    To whet appetites for feedyng the fundraising efforts, here's a depiction of a French nobleman's medieval kennel, which - Dr. A, please take note -





    outstrips the creature comfort levels of even the late T. Boone Pickens' mutt mansion!

    My friend MG,

    It's a true honor and thanks for the thoughts.

    I don't know that I'd sound too good reading some of that stuff aloud.

    The one quote at the very top got my attention:
    the greatest defect of the species was that they ‘lived not long enough’.
    Dogs didn't live long enough 700 years ago. The same is true today!

    Au contraire, you'd be great - Mr. Atkinson, International Dogman of Mystery! You have the experiences - and the contacts on distant shores - that a lot of us can only dream about.

    Agreed on the quote up top on the article, also tried to let it trip off my tongue in the argot of the era:

    ‘the moost defaute of houndes is that thei lyven not longe inowe’
    Didn't work, not for a syllable - thus a hail call to Polmaise! C'mon out of hiding, Robt. - we miss ya'.

    And oh, yeah, Mr. Atkinson, 'bout that arcane Mr. Acker Bilk reference: Enjoy - with the audio amplified at about the volume of a "permission back:"

    Better than 4 years ago. The Eagles are getting much better and now we have professional rugby in the US I think we will get even better.

    Hasn’t it always been that way? At least for the last 8-10 years
