I'll suffer through it, and be thankful for small favours (i.e., it's not the Jonathan Winters version). The music is actually kind of pretty, it's just the story that drives me bonkers.

It's on again! A new narrator, but I'll bet it still ends badly for the wolf. :rofl:

Muwahahahah!

It's the Jonathan Winters version, complete with Jonathan Winters side commentary. As always, I'm enjoying the sarcastic observations. And the funny voices. :rofl:

Selma,
Your comments re: PATW have always left me slightly uneasy. Did you ever apply to be an interrogator at GITMO?

I only ask because your glee in "watching" us suffer when PATW comes on borders on the.....unhealthy.

I can see you now

"No? then I haf no choice.......put on PATW....the Yhonnie Vinters' copy!!!"

Naah. My sense of humor worries the security types. They suspect that I'm mocking them.

Oh, wait, Haggis spent decades as a security type. He might take that personal.

No, Haggis, I'm insufficiently task-oriented for the Marines.

Whew, that ought to fly. He'll buy that.

That's a great way to put it. I'll have to use that one.

Somebody once asked me why I didn't become a doctor with my interest in all things medical. I told 'em I was too lazy even consider taking on all that schooling.

There's a wolf sneaking around behind my speakers. A very sneaky, lean, and hungry wolf. He's making me nervous. :chicken:

P&tW is playing, and my computer's not playing it! Drat! Double drat! Fooey!

We rearranged the house, the computer's been moved again, and either the sound card has gotten jostled loose, died, or I've got speaker issues. I am not amused. I'm missing Peter! and the Wolf!

:curse:
