Wild Road Trips and Prince Caspian Productions—Part 1

I'm not slacking off on posting, really. (Though that wouldn't be beneath me.) See, last week, my family was traveling down to South Carolina to see a play of Prince Caspian (more on that later), and between that and having the brain cells of a flea, I wasn't able to write anything. Which, technically, was… Continue reading Wild Road Trips and Prince Caspian Productions—Part 1
