Biffy has fallen in love. Well, he fell in love. Then he lost the girl. Like, he couldn’t find her. Then he forgot her last name. And the name of his hotel. Is it really “better to have loved and lost”? P.G. Wodehouse, today on The Classic Tales Podcast.
Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening.
Many, many thanks to those of you who have so generously donated to Basil’s Student Residency fund. Last week we discovered that Basil, my eldest, after four years at local art academy, was accepted for a month-long residency to The New York Academy of Art. We are so very proud of him.
We’ve come up a bit short, and we need some help to get him there.
We need to raise $6,000, and we are halfway there. Thank you so much for helping him out. We’ve been blown away by the generosity of our parents, friends, family members, and especially YOU! We’ve done what we can, but things have really slowed down. We’re still $3,000 shy of what we need to send our boy to New York for the experience of a lifetime.
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 6 of 10, by P.G. Wodehouse.
