         ** Welcome to Tim's Big Adventures **

You have entered the Joannes Home Diggings Room:

You see: a British Bulldog with a tie and wire-rimmed glasses on,
looking apprehensively to one side where a seemingly good-natured
Rottweiler sits with pink bows, sunglasses and a straw bonnet on. 

You see that the Rottweiler's chain is not fastened.

...the Sin of Ignorance, and 
...the Sin of Stupidity.
Only the former may be overcome." R.I.P. Dad.
