No, sorry. This is the first I’ve heard of it.
Are you still into all things LOTR? Haven’t heard much out of your snowed-in part of the world lately. You survivin’?
But of course. Just not too active on FR anymore. On the blogs. My friend Ward is writing again as well.
Too much snow here. More tonight and even more Monday. Dang global warming.
Hope you’re well.
Yep. It’s a normal amount of snow for Ohio this time of year. All that global warming breaking out is nonetheless very chilly here.
Got a link to Ward? Send it to my freepmail. Thanks, Bro.
The trailer is terrific... we’ll have to sit down and watch the full version sometime soon!
