Episode 013


It’s our lucky thirteenth episode!  If we were superstitious we would be nervous! 

 This week we review Chapter Twenty-Two through Chapter Twenty-Nine for our Anne Heads Read-along!  Anne enjoys a successful tea party with Mrs. Allan, takes on a dangerous dare from the infamous Josie Pye, meets her new teacher Miss Stacy, and FINALLY gets a dress with puffed sleeves. 

We discuss the merits of cultivating your imagination with Anne’s Story Club.  We laugh over Anne’s green hair….and Aimee’s “strawberry” hair.  Anne almost forgives Gilbert when he rescues her from a watery grave but her pride wins the day, and Aunt Josephine invites Diana and the Anne-girl to stay in her “sparest of spare-room beds.”

 This week we made some of Diana Barry’s delicious raspberry cordial!  Watch it here!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ltdx6faJtKE  

 It’s the year 1900 in “A Year in the Life of Maud.  In a strange case of parallels, we read of Maud’s experience of a solar eclipse on the very same day that we experienced a solar eclipse here in the USA in 2017!!!  Must be something to do with it being our thirteenth episode!  **Insert Twilight Zone Theme here!**

Carissima is the first of many cat profiles in this week’s Cat Corner! Here about her many admirers and her admirable hygiene practices!

Thank you for all your fun and interesting feedback!  Keep it coming!  On the next podcast we will review Chapters Thirty through Thirty-Eight, which will take us to the end of “Anne of Green Gables.”  But don’t worry!  We have lots more in store for you! 

Episode 012


Well, Episode 12 is finally available, in spite of the fact that we may or may not have had too much “raspberry cordial” last night!

We review Chapters 15 through 21 of “Anne of Green Gables” in which we meet Gilbert for the first time and Anne’s slate meets Gilbert’s skull.  Diana overindulges on raspberry cordial as people are apt to do!  Anne saves Minnie May from death by croup, goes to a concert, and Anne and Diana jump on an unsuspecting Great-Aunt Josephine!  Addlepated Anne almost poisons the new ministers wife when she flavors her cake with anodyne liniment!

We learn about the year Maud turned twenty-five in “A Year in the life of Maud,”  and  we grieve with her when she receives some heart-breaking news.

In this week’s “Cat Corner” we take a peek into Maud’s scrapbooks and we finish up with lots of feedback about the controversial relationship between Mr. Phillips and Prissy Andrews and some exciting new literary adventures!
