Episode 8 Elizabeth Zimmermann Notes

In this episode The Blethering Room is turned into The Blethering Zimmer.  I read several letters that Elizabeth Zimmermann wrote to me in 1977.  More to come in future episodes...

The fictitious character I refer to is Precious Ramotswe, daughter of the late Obed Ramotswe, and the owner and founder of The #1 Ladies' Detective Agency.  The author of the series of books that begin with The #1 Ladies' Detective Agency is Alexander McCall Smith.

The Danish knitting book, Hoensestrik  (the o actually has a slash through it and no "e" but I don't know how to type that letter on the blog.) by Kirsten Hofstatter.  ISBN 87-980272-0-4  1974
That famous signature.

I just listened to this episode of the podcast, and will be listening to it again (and again). Thank you so much. I do hope you read more EZ letters. They're wonderful. I must go back and re-read her books. She was a terrific writer—and artist. Her sketches and watercolors in Knitting Around knock my socks off.

Thanks again, Paula!

Oh! My turkeys do the same basin-thing in the dirt. I always assumed it was for eventually laying eggs. Maybe not? I haven't seen them this year, but they've been here—my hostas are all chewed down. :)

Dear Paula
Thank you so much for your wonderful podcasts. I listen to them on my train ride to work every day. Being from Copenhagen (Denmark) I especially enjoyed the "H√łnsestrik" and EZ story! I would love to hear more EZ letters and what a treat to have letters like that! I'm green of envy :0) Your voice is so calming and perfect for broadcasting - you really enlighten my day with you podcasts. Thank you.
