The Hobbit: It's Always an Adventure with Kyle

The Hobbit:  It's Always an Adventure with KyleI am looking for someone to share in an adventure that I am arranging, and it's very difficult to find anyone. I should think so — in these parts! We are plain quiet folk and have no use for adventures. Nasty disturbing uncomfortable things! Make you late for dinner!  ~J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit ...more

Bring on the Weekend

I can narrow it down to my top three....more
