Hey, there is a new one. But the audio still doesn't work, it's my laptop. Thank you for your visits, have a nice weekend.

Julie said...

md - this works! It's hit and miss - think its something to do with the router, sometimes it does and sometimes nothing loads.

Every sympathies with the virus; you must be exhausted.

ANNA-LYS said...

The postman only rings twice
... one is done ;-)

Akasha Savage said...

Very good! Worth waiting for.
I just love it that the locals are still eating 'that' ham! ;)

Middle Ditch said...

Have a nice weekend too Dick.

Julie, I'm glad it worked. Keep trying.

Anna-Lys, I visited you a little earlier, wanted to post a comment and was called away. I'll see you soon.

Thank you Akasha. This is the last of the ham. Other things are going to happen.

TomCat said...

Hi, MD. First, thanks for your visit and comment at Politics Plus. I'm sorry it took so long to visit you back. I've been swamped. must say this is a unique idea for a blog. Love the humor, once I got the interface to work. :-)

Middle Ditch said...

Hi Tomcat, thanks for the visit.

ANNA-LYS said...

Novel Nymph said...

how absolutely amazing, and i usually hate to catch a most recent episode without knowing the rest, but this was compelling!


next month then?

Aggie said...

Oh, a "bad egg", ham sammies and vibrating trousers. (I'm not sure I'd be brave enough to ask that question of a man even if I should notice ... lol!)
Good one.

ivan said...

Problems with my interface like all the others, but I think I got a good piece of Episode ten.

Very BBC, though from an earlier period, it seems to me. Certainly salable.
I notice each line of dialogue is self-explanatory and visual.

I guess you need that for radio.
Keep up the good work. You will make it.

Middle Ditch said...

Anna-Lys, I will have a look at that.

Novel Nymph, you could start at the beginning to follow the story.

Aggie, no, I'm sure if I saw a mobile vibrating in some ones trousers, I'd ignore it.

Ivan, thank you. It's not easy to write for radio. TV is a lot easier.

dabrah said...

Hi, I couldn't get it to work. I know my sound was working, and I could see the line moving from left to right to show that it was playing, but I could hear nothing.

fizzycat said...

Thanks you are welcome , hope you get rich and famous ( just like me) best wishes.

ANNA-LYS said...

Such a Lovely Sunny Day here,
how is it over there?

♫ ♫ ♫

NB said...

It is wonderful weather in Sky City. Unfortunately this computer has no loudspeaker. But anyway: have a nice future!

Middle Ditch said...

Dabrah, I hope that you have more success the next time. Perhaps higher the volume on your computer?

Fizzycat, I don't dream of fame and riches. That means nothing to me. I just want to be recognized as a good script writer.

Anna-Lys, the weather is lovely here. Frosty and sunny. Just the way I like it.

Nicholas, I'm sorry that you can't hear things. Perhaps you need a new computer? Being a postman now may mean more money?

ANNA-LYS said...

Dear MD,
That is a humour site made of girls from different parts of the world. Not an art side, no no ... LOL
On the other hand humour is a form of art craft, as well, don't You think :-D Thought Your humour should fit there as well .... (( hug ))

Middle Ditch said...

Thanks Anna-Lys, I shall think about it.

HILLBLOGGER said...

Hello Middle Ditch,

Have just discovered your blog and will return later on to check the entries.

Thanks for dropping by my blog.

René said...

Very nice to listen to a radioplay on a blog.

TomCat said...

I agree with Ivan. It also reminds me of early US radio, like Jack Benny, but the humor is much dryer.

Middle Ditch said...

Hillblogger, lovely to see you here. I hope that you like the quirky tales of village life.

Rene, thanks for listening. What's so nice about a blog is that you can always go from the first episode and learn what the story is about.

Tomcat ... You know, when I am writing this, it's not really intended to be so funny. It's the excellent cast's performance that provides the humour.

david mcmahon said...

Isn't it funny how thin the line (sometimes) is that separates good and bad taste!

Julie at Virtual Journey said...

Hi md - not a cheep tonight - i got part of it last time I came in.

Will go over and have a catch up on the scripts. Hope things are improving, J

cocaine jesus said...

for some infuriating reason, i cannot open the posts. bugger! it will have to wait till i get a quiet moment at work.
bloody shame as this looks so very much like my cuppa tea.

Middle Ditch said...

Thank you all for leaving a comment.

TomCat said...

MD, I think that's what makes it so authentic.

CJ, I open it in a new window or tabs and listen at the Twango site.

dabrah said...

I got it to work, now I have to go back to the beginning and catch up with what went before. Sounds good, though.

ANNA-LYS said...

:-)

Smile and the wor(l)d
will smile with You!

Middle Ditch said...

Tomcat, Thanks for the compliment and I've left a message on CJ's blog about Twango.

Dabrah, enjoy.

Anna-Lys, I'm still thinking about it.

Texel in vogelvlucht. Gerard said...

Hello Monique. Thank you for visiting my Blog. I can't write in Englisch very good, so i think you better look on Wikipedia. There you can see wath 's happend to Irene. http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prinses_Irene.
I think that Beatrix will be our Queen for many years.
Have a nice weekend, and greetings from Texel.
Gerard

NB said...

Sorry! I was exaggerating. We don't have that much snow - yet. :-)

J. Andrew Lockhart said...

ah, nice to hear you again! :)

Middle Ditch said...

Texel, thank you. I had a look and discovered much more than I knew about her. Actually, your English is pretty good.

Tsk tsk Nicholas. Can I trust you in the future? Can I take your future posts serious? Mmmmm ......

Thank you for visiting J Andrew Lockhart.

dabrah said...

Thanks for leaving the comment with your experiences on my blog. I like Middle Ditch.

Charles Gramlich said...

Some good laughs here.

TomCat said...

Cool, MD. I hope it works for her. I've added you to my blogroll. Pardon the delay. I've been busy. :-)

Middle Ditch said...

Dabrah, I'm so glad that you like Middle Ditch, quirky tales of village life.

Charles Gramlich, welcome and thanks for your comment. I hope to see you again.

Tomcat, thank you for linking. I'm honoured.

dabrah said...

Hi Monique, thanks so much for stopping by and signing up for my giveaway. Have you checked out any of the others taking part in the event? Some of them have some really nice stuff to give away.

Middle Ditch said...

I will check it out Dabrah.

Dick said...

Hi Monique

I heard them all, good work.

TomCat said...

Hi backatya!

Middle Ditch said...

Dick, I will keep you up to date with future episodes.

Tomcat, see you soon.

Erik Ståhlberg said...

Hi there, this is a reply for the comment at my blog.
Yeah, I know, it's a shame that i'm not writing in english, but I feel that to fulfill that asignment I need to be better in english than i am.
But I will think about it and maby I will start a english blog sometime in the future.

Greetings from Sweden and Erik For Real.

Middle Ditch said...

Hi Erik, Thanks for your visit. I left a message on your blog. Great to meet you. Your English is fine.

ANNA-LYS said...

I am here
and You?

cocaine jesus said...

having returned and done as you suggested i have been sitting here at work transfixed by this excellent series. be great to have on CD and then i could listen more attentitvely without fear of my boss suddenly appearing at my shoulder!!

Middle Ditch said...

Anna-Lys! Great to hear from you ... will visit soon.

C J, I'm glad you like it. You could always download it on an ipod, or something like that, to listen in peace.

TopChamp said...

Hello - happy belated valentines...

I haven't seen a blog quite like this before. Off to listen now.

Middle Ditch said...

Good to see you Topchamp.

Marja said...

Hi Monique Thanks for your visit. I know what you mean in your comment but sometimes...Next year I am going for a visit to the Netherlands. I am happy about that. It takes 30 hours to get there so you can't do it very often. Unfortunately I am not able to access what you have here on your blog. I just get a white square. Wish you all the best.

TomCat said...

What's up in Ditchville? ;-)

Middle Ditch said...

Marja, thanks for visiting. Thirty hours to fly to Holland? No wonder you can't go there often. I'll visit you soon again.

Tom, ha-ha-ha

ANNA-LYS said...

Hello Monique,
I see You are in the moon,
I mean in the good mood ;-)

Middle Ditch said...

I am, Anna-Lys, I am in a very good mood as it is half term and I am going to post another segment on Monique. Also, tomorrow episode eleven of Middle Ditch is going to be posted, so excellent mood all around.

X. Dell said...

Cocaine Jesus, I thought that you should be here. This type of small-town secret humor seems right up your alley.

And now, for that ham sandwich...

Middle Ditch said...

Those ham sandwiches are a legend around Middle Ditch but who would have guessed that human flesh would give it such an extraordinary good taste!

tykobrie said...

Vibrating trousers? Those ham sandwiches?

This was fun

Middle Ditch said...

Thanks Tykobrie

Ricardo said...

The Ham is made of people!

Middle Ditch said...

I know!! But they don't!!

MRMacrum said...

Again the group dynamics. Excellent. Good tie in with the ham sandwiches. My empathy for Alan has gone from one end of the spectrum to the other and back again.

Monique said...

That Alan is quite a character Mrmacrum, I do enjoy writing him.

Devin said...

This was a great great one! Drake knows his bacon hehe :-)

Middle Ditch said...

Devin, Drake indeed does know his bacon.

boneman said...

almost went dark, but then the ham arises.


Oh my!
I'm eating a pork shoulder steak right now!

HA!

Middle Ditch said...

I hope you pork shoulder steak was fine Boneman. It should have been, unless you have people like Howard, Barbara and Drake living in your area. You just can't trust folk like that.

Joseph said...

I realize that everyone must say precisely the same point.
