Still no word from old Ben Kanobi known locally as Robert Firestone.ReplyDelete
Please look for this man that looks like OB1 Kanobi, you're his only hope.
Please, if anyone sees him or thinks they do, please call the Sheriff's dept because they are slowing down the search since there are no new leadsReplyDelete
Still no sign of OB1. We still have hope that he is doing something important.ReplyDelete
