Loved this episode. I thought this was the funniest one so far. I like how the male actor illustrates his discomfort and his fishing about for the right word.

Well done.

Monique,

I like this little gadget. I'm a multi-tasking person (I know, it's bad), and it gives me a chance to listen to this episode, and do other thing as well...Take care.

X. Dell said...

Sir Brian is indeed funny. He's how we imagine politicians to be underneath the rhetoric. And I like the way this is tying into the beginning of the series.

When Lady Annabel first flashed him, I just knew they were going to run into something. Funny. Lady MacBeth never had those kinds of problems.

Pris said...

With my hearing I'm going to have to listen again to get it all, but what I heard was a riot! I really liked the sputtering about , too:-)

Keep 'em coming!

Ps Do you write your scripts in a form that could be posted somewhere? For any of us with hearing difficulties the words in front helps the ear 'hear'. I don't want to miss a word!

Monique said...

Brian is an ace actor Charles. He is such an asset.

Icycucky, I don't think multi-tasking is at all bad. Thanks for the visit.

Pretty predictable eh, X Dell. Still, this did really happen to poor Brian and it was too good not to use (with Brian's permission, of course)

Pris, I wouldn't know where to post the script. You are not the first one to ask. Any suggestions?

David Caddy said...

Yes, Brian plays well here and is ably supported by Rowena.

S E E Quine said...

"Don'don't bu-but I-I... She was a liberal democrat! I only have eyes for you!"

"By the way, what do you think of my breasts?"

Lol!!

Pris said...

Monique
You could open another blog called Middle Ditch Annex and post the scripts there and just link the blog to this one. One possibility?

Pris

Monique said...

David, thank you for that comment

s s s quine, Brian is good, isn't he. I will visit you again and try this time to see your drawings.

Pris, I shall talk to David about it. Could you, in this way, listen and read at the same time?

Monique said...

X Dell, I read my answer to your comment again and I have to correct myself slightly here (I was tired) Yes, this did happen to Brian, he went in the back of a car when distracted, but not by a lady in a state of undress. That story we made up.

S E E Quine said...

That's Brian, eh? Such a cutie! (I hope.)

Er... and if the drawings are still being pesky, try... clicking on them or something!

Marja said...

Very funnie and naughty Loved the sputtering. Are they crashing in the end

X. Dell said...

Not actually predictable. It's what I always fear when a pretty lady flashes me while I'm driving.

Pris said...

Hi Monique
I can give you a simple code that allows the link to open in a new window off of the page, ie the visitor would click the Annex link and the page would open above the radio show and could read and still hear the show. Ask David if he remembers. I gave him that type of link that involves adding target="_blank" to the end of the a href code to use in his So Here We Are essays. With that, I could read and listen to those at the same time.

Ted Roth said...

A big change in your site! Terrific! I'll try to get back soon and listen through some of these to catch on to what's happening. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Middle Ditch said...

Thanks for visiting Ted.

fizzycat said...

Fantastic,the spluttering disaproval sound from Randolph was hilarious, leading on to his trying to avoid certain subjects. Annabel's voice is just right.Fantastic use of sound effects too. I hope one day to purchase the Middleditch photo ( the villagy one) on a mug. Middleditch fudge, jam.....
Thanks for visiting blog.It is a lovely day. My excuse for being online is to complete a competition from a product (no free advertising from me) that I bought today when shopping.

TopChamp said...

Hello, Thanks for your cake advice & congratulations to your daughter!

This made me laugh - Perky!

Middle Ditch said...

Thanks Fizz, I'm glad that you are enjoying the serial.
Brian and Rowena are an asset to the cast.

I would love to get my hands on one of those mugs you are going to create. What a wonderful idea.

Raccoonlover, thank you for visiting.

Topchamp. good luck with your cake.

Ricardo said...

That was great! thank you for stopping by. Makes me want to go back to my acting days. Thanks for putting these together.

Absolute Vanilla (& Atyllah) said...

I've tried several times to listen to this, and I get nothing. Think I'd better get my husband to take a look and see if he can get it to work!

Middle Ditch said...

Hi Ricardo, thank you for visiting.

Absolute vanilla, I hope that your next visit will be fruitful.

foam said...

lol!
i grinned the whole time while listening to this.
and that crash! oops! lol...

Monique said...

Foam, thank you for visiting. I was grinning too.

Deane said...

I loved the sputtering as well, and the crash at the end found me bracing myself and tensing up for the worst!

Will the mugs be available by Holiday time?????? And will you ship to the US???

Middle Ditch said...

Deane, thanks for visiting. The mugs are a wonderful idea, if and when available we shall definitely try to get our hands on it.

We are also thinking of putting MD on discs and selling them. Anyone out there interested?

K9 said...

wow! i guess this is where the golden ganesh project sort of got started! i think i have to back up then, and start at 1. thanks for visiting SK9. good to meet you.

david mcmahon said...

Please let me know, Monique, if there is a chance that this series will be on cable TV here in Australia ....

J. Andrew Lockhart said...

it should be on here in the U.S., too! :)

American Hill BIlly said...

Helllooo there,

I saw you on my blog, and appreciate your comment. I hope you keep reading. I have slow internet on an Island, and these darn microsoft updates are every frickin day!!!

I like what your doing. In my opinion it reminds me off a back to reality basics on using your imagination, and mind.


Peace and Freedom

Middle Ditch said...

K9, it's good to see you here. Yes X Dell got the idea from here.

David, it might be on cable radio. Who knows?

J. Andrew, thanks for visiting.

American Hill Billy (I do like that name) you're very welcome.

Yoga Gal said...

Thanks- I can use a good laugh these days.

Vwriter said...

You owe me, Monique. I laughed so hard at the sputtering response to "What do you think of my breasts?" that I actually knocked my coffee cup over and drenched my cat! (lukewarm coffe, by the way)

Do you know what a white Turkish Angora cat looks like when soaked in coffee?

Also, what is your husband's link? You have so many on your page I couldn't find it.

Please keep the episodes coming.

Monique said...

Yoga gal, thanks for visiting.

Vwriter, I can imagine how your poor cat looked like, covered in coffee.

S E E Quine said...

I hope your cat's caffeine stains wear off... otherwise it's going to have trouble sleeping!

Monique said...

s e e quine, I think that the cat will be all right. Thanks for visiting

benjibopper said...

sir randy seems to have taken a few too many crazy pills, what a character. i hope they survived. gotta see how they handle the scandle.

Monique said...

Oh they survive alright Benjibopper. They will both be more regular in MD soon.

David Caddy said...

Yes, Minton and Lady Annabel are becoming regular participants like Drake and Jim, Howard and Barbara,
Sarah and Susan.

Janice Thomson said...

Fantastic episode - I laughed till I nearly cried - these are great characters! And what a perfect ending. I love coming back and hearing this all over again :)

Middle Ditch said...

Janice, aren't they good? Such an asset to the cast.

KB said...

So funny, am loving it!

Monique said...

KB, thanks for listening and your comment.

David Caddy said...

Yes, thank you all for listening!

MRMacrum said...

Lol! Perky, well proportioned. And you left us with a funny cliffhanger to boot.

Monique said...

Thank you MrMacrum. Brian and Rowena are great together.

Devin said...

How wonderful-the plot is indeed thickening! I hope the lot of you are doing wonderfully and staying warm! before turning in I will check weather for the UK-the last time I was there-95 I arrived Oct 12 and the people were telling me how lucky I was that good weather was abundant at the time. Although I would much rather be too cold than too hot-and live in an odd place for this feeling! Peace and best to all of you!

Middle Ditch said...

Thanks Devin ... It's a little cold here at the moment and my cats hate it.
