I thought King's Row was his biggest movie, so I was nowhere near South Bend.

Re: Thursday, September 13, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Was anyone else surprised to learn that restaura n teur is actually restaura n teur ? I assume you meant "restaurateur" one of those times. Anyway, I knew it, but I didn't always. It was among the last words I learned how to spell. But what I really came here to say is that I know the daughter of t...
