i'm not going to lie, i actually love the look of this stock photo briefcase. it's got a lot of character. i would totally carry a briefcase like that.

seeing as there's been a lot more people stopping by, i sort of feel like i should be giving a bit more of an explanation about the king of the road series, but i'm not fully sure if that's necessary or not. so, how about you tell me? if you have any questions, are a bit confused, or whatever, let me know and i'll try to sort everything all out in the next king of the road post.
