Rocky, a wistful poet, is forced to trip the light fantastic every night in order to keep his aunt safely sequestered. Jeeves has a scheme that shows that one man’s poison is another man’s pleasure. Let’s just hope it lasts. P.G. Wodehouse, today on The Classic Tales Podcast.
Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening.
Well, this week, we had one of those amazing moments of a parent’s life. My oldest son, Basil, after four years at his art academy, has been accepted for a month-long residency to The New York Academy of Art. He even got a merit-based scholarship. This is a major milestone in his art career. We are so proud of him.
But here’s the thing. We’ve come up a bit short. We need some help to get him there.
We told him to reach for the stars, and he made it. He even got a scholarship. But we are $6,000 short. If you could pitch in a few bucks, and help get Basil to his New York residency we would really, really appreciate it.
Basil has actually been on the podcast team. He started proofing the podcast for me when he was in seventh grade, and he did it all through high school. So, if you’ve listened to Pride and Prejudice, Uncle Silas, or the first Arsène Lupin stories, you’ve heard his work.
I’ve set up a Go Fund Me account for Basil, and all of the proceeds go directly to fund his residency. It’s actually not connected to me or the podcast at all. It all goes to help Basil make this next milestone in what is sure to be an illustrious art career. The link can be found in the description of this week’s episode.
Thank you so very much. It really wouldn’t happen without your help.
And now, Carry On, Jeeves, Part 5 of 10, by P.G. Wodehouse.
