Brenda Dayne Regrets

Well, she doesn't regret it yet, but the week is still young.

If you listen to Cast On: A Podcast for Knitters, then you know that the hostess and creator, Brenda Dayne, has been taking a little bitty break and allowing guest hosts to fill in for her.

Guess who the next guest host is, for the episode slated to appear this Friday?

Yep.

Broadcast Preview

So far assembling the show is going well, except that Dolores is being peevish because she wants to do a harmonica solo and I'm putting my foot down. I'm not certain whether you'll hear her or not. Kinda depends on whether she's already passed out for the evening.

But there will be two (count 'em) essays on knitting from non-knitters, plus a whole lot of me.

She's a brave gal, that Brenda.

Splendid, Franklin! Knock us out.

Mum says with your name you should be allowed to do fireside chats ..she also says Dolores looks like Phyillis Diller and that she can't remember what was so funny but just the sight of the woman has her in fits.Good luck with your pod-cast ..duct-tape the sheep's mouth for your own sake .

Franklin,

You might point out to Delores that the Welsh know how to deal with sheep, as described by Thomas Love Peacock in his glorious poem, The War-Song of Dinas Vawr, which begins

The mountain sheep are sweeter,
But the valley sheep are fatter;
We therefore deem’d it meeter
To carry off the latter.

And then after several stanzas of murder and mayhem, ends ...

Ednyfed, King of Dyfed,
His head was borne before us;
His wine and beasts supplied our feasts,
And his overthrow, our chorus.

Delores may decide to keep a low profile.

Congrats! I can't wait to hear your podcast!! And maybe you can find a way to compromise with Delores, a little blip. I mean, you'd think after all these years she wouldn't be looking for all this attention and would rather keep a low profile? Maybe she has a little Lucy Ricardo in her, that she wants to still be part of the show no matter what.

Whoa...

I can't wait. :)

I still think my idea for you to do a VIDEO podcast is a good one.

P.S. Please tell Dolores I don't appreciate booty calls from her at 3 a.m. on work nights (or any night for that matter!).

Mama Lu said...

Damn. I spelled Dolores's name wrong. Our Lady of Sorrows ... it doesn't seem to have done your Dolores any harm, but what a name to burden a child with! I have heard worse, though. A friend who was a nurse in an Acadian community encountered a woman (the youngest of 16) named "Victime."

I have been waiting for your episode ever since Brenda announced it. Can't. Wait. Rock my world Franklin. Delores, I have shears and I'm not afraid to use em! >:)

Jen said...

weeeeee hooooooo!!!!!

Norah said...

Woohoo! I can't wait!

Ann said...

Why is Delores starting to remind me of the "Unicorn in the Garden?"

Celtic Knitter said...

I love cast-on . . . I think Brenda is wonderful. I'm looking forward to hearing you host it.

Thanks for adding my link .. . and then fixing it too :)

Carrie K said...

Cool! But I want to hear Dolores' solo.

Beth said...

So, I imagine Dolores sounding something like Marge Schott, ie: someone who smoked Camel non-filtereds for the better part of her life.

But, I bet she can wail on the harmonica like Elwood Blues.

Mel said...

I eagerly await.

You probably know by now, but I met Sue last Saturday. You've got a swell sister, but I expect you know that by now.

Elemmaciltur said...

Can't wait for the episode!

Cathy said...

Is Dolores related to Maxine? If not, they are certainly similar - down to the cigarette.

Sneaksleep said...

Actually, I would be rather interested in hearing a harmonica solo from Dolores. But I am still more interested in hearing what *you* have to say. Woo Hoo!

KSD said...

Funny; I would have pegged Dolores as an oboe player.

Del said...

Hi! I listen to cast-on and really enjoyed your episode. Was wondering if you had a pic of the sweater, it sounded fabulous.

Evelyn said...

I caught you on Cast On, and I had to write in and say Bravo! I didn't miss Brenda for a minute, well, maybe for a few seconds. . .

Great job and your latin sweater is a wonder.

Blessings,

Evelyn
