Aha the unraveling starts! Loved the dialogue about the internet - very funny. I gather by the last comment that a bug has been hidden there...

Monique said...

Ah, you never know Janice.

Charles Gramlich said...

I like the play on tone and language when he is explaining about seeing all the variety of breasts.

X. Dell said...

The Internet dialogue was pretty funny.

I'm curious. In the research for this piece, what did you find out about the laws that actually covered the incident. I don't know anything about British jurisprudence, but in the US, Howard could have been charged with felony murder, third degree murder, or first degree manslaughter (in addition to assault and battery). Barbara and the pig farmer would face conspiracy charges. The rest of the people at the meeting could be charged as accomplices during the fact (for the initial battery), and accomplices after the fact (the cover up).

What I'm getting down to is this: I'm wondering what each character thinks he/she is facing as a potential consequence, and how that might be guiding their motivations.

BTW, Mrs. Woods shows all the symptoms of PTSD.

loved the internet dialogue... was fun :)

Donnetta Lee said...

Oh, those lovely British voices. This is so neat to be able to listen to. And this is so creative. It's all new to me. I'm trying to catch up! Cool!

Middle Ditch said...

This is probably a completely new world for Drake Charles.

x.dell, thanks for the compliment, but we aint there yet.

Without giving too much away, we still have other twists and turns to come. Also, it was an accident. Cassidy was not meant to be eaten of course. The characters, specially Howard, think that they have got away with it as there is no evidence. And poor Mrs Wood is forever losing her memory and is therefore an unreliable witness. And anyway this is just a silly tale of village life to keep everybody amused and me plotting and scheming, which I like.

Thank you Polona.

Donnetta, I aim to please.

Have a hard time getting through to comment.

Here is what I had in a blog reply.

Migod,

What a perfervid imagination.

You are a true script writer.

So reminiscent of all the Brit stuff we get here on PPS and OLN.

But here, we seem to get well abreast of the genre. Augmented tits on a man!

Howard , the credit card to snatch--or is it the breasts?

What a romp!

laughingwolf said...

ok... first time listener, and im hooked! :)

gotta return and hear it from the beginning... thank you!

David Caddy said...

Welcome laughing wolf and all other new listeners.

Happy that you are enjoying the series!

fizzycat said...

Goodness , glad you are back, will listen tomorrow.

ThursdayNext said...

I cannot thank you enough for visiting my blog and leading me here...I have a lot to catch up on this weekend...I cannot wait!

KB said...

Nothing like a few breasts to make an interesting story. Loving it!

Middle Ditch said...

Ivan, thanks and pleased to see you here again.

Middle Ditch said...

Fizz, enjoy

Middle Ditch said...

Thursdaynext, welcome and enjoy the episodes. Can't wait to hear what you make of them.

KB, sometimes I'm not sure how far I can go and what words I can use. So far so good.

David John Caswell said...

Dear Middle Ditch,
I would agree with kb, breast references certainly make for an interesting story. As for your concerns about how far to go! Well anything goes..that what I say.
David.

Tina said...

wow what a very unusual interesting website. I have never saw anything like this before!

well done you!
Thanks for stopping by my place

fizzycat said...

Racy, hilarious and very English , what more can I say.

Marja said...

Ha ha you know how to make a great story. (you still got your Dutch accent)

Middle Ditch said...

Thank you David, I keep that in mind.

Tina, welcome to the quirky tales of village life,

Middle Ditch said...

Hi Fizz, thanks for the comment.

Oh I know Marja, I have been here nearly thirty years and I guess I will never lose that accent.

David Caddy said...

Hi Tina and Fizzycat,

Thanks for joining in the fun!

Leigh Russell said...

Twists and turns galore!

David Caddy said...

Hi Leigh,

Thanks for returning to listen.

Daryl said...

Its getting really good ... all the clever twists and turns ...

:-Daryl

fizzycat said...

Yes my new radishes to be are in the sandiest bit of earth I could find in the back yard now. You live and learn.

Aggie said...

As intriguing as always. Internet and boobs ... yep somehow they had to be there. Lol!

Anne Lyken-Garner said...

I've come in today with prepared ears to listen, but somehow, I can't. Something seems to be wrong, maybe it's my old computer playing up again.

Will check back later.

Ruela said...

;)

Monique said...

Daryl, thank you, yes I like giving things a twist.

Aggie, the Internet was very exciting for Farmer Drake.

I'll await your return Anne and I hope that you will be able to listen to Drake on the Internet.

Monique said...

Fizz, I;m sure that those radishes will grow like mad!

Ruela, thank you for that smile

J. Andrew Lockhart said...

haven't been here for a while - shame on me!
Good work. :)

David Caddy said...

Hi Foam and Andrew,

Good to read that you are catching up.

Cheers, David

reader Wil said...

Well that was interesting I shall try to listen to the other episodes lateron! So you are/were Dutch! Utrecht is one of the cities I like, not only because I went to that university( for only a year) but because I went to the training college for teachers, which was a nice time! I like the Dom and the Domchurch too.Thanks for your visit.

Middle Ditch said...

Thank you reader wil, for your visit.

imac said...

Interesting.
Thanks for visiting my blog and your kind comments.

mrsnesbitt said...

I love the politics of village life so I will be back. Have saved it in my favourites.

Middle Ditch said...

Imac, thank you for leaving a comment.

Mrsnesbitt, I will link you too.

Elena said...

Monique, I've finally made it back. I've listened to both episodes 13 and 14. Once again intriguing and so natural. Hits home too. My mother-in-law's home was robbed in England a few years back while she was upstairs sleeping. Good thing she didn't wake up to the surprise.

Really enjoyed both episodes and look forward to the next.

Middle Ditch said...

Elena!! It's so good to see you again. I'm on my way to see you and I'm glad that you liked both episodes. Episode 13 struck a chord with quite a few listeners.

babooshka said...

I am getting fustrated as I can't open the post! Arrrgh! Any suggestios. I desperately feel I am missing out.

I used to live in Christchurch a very long time ago.

Monique said...

Babooshka, I'm sorry that you are unable to make this work. Perhaps better luck next time.

Ricardo said...

I think the first place many men have gone when they first connected to the internet was an adult site. LOL! What can one do?

Monique said...

Well, Ricardo, it's definitely in Drake's interest. Poor Howard had such an ordeal! This is the other side of our gentle Drake.

MRMacrum said...

What can I say? That first visit to a porn site is a shocker for sure. I can imagine how Drake felt having been there before myself. Thankfully the infatuation was brief and I found political newsgroups to really get fired up in. They don't cost money.

Nice tie in to the plot with this one.

Monique said...

MrMacrum, thank you.

Devin said...

We must warn Drake :-) thanks for all of your creative work!

Middle Ditch said...

Devin, we must indeed. Thanks for commenting
