Visiting Bag End

The good thing about visiting Bag End was because it was so far away that each visit lasted a good long time. Elfstan loved the way Bag End was so different from Undertowers, filled with aunts and uncles and cousins. Uncle Robin and Uncle Tolman were just Rob and Tom; they were not so much older that they couldn’t have splendid romps, but older enough that they were trusted to watch him. And Gamma Rose was always in the kitchen cooking wonderful things. Rob and Tom would put Elfstan up to begging for treats, for Gamma Rose would give them to him every time, but she would tell them to wait until the next meal.

And there was Gaffer Sam. He would sit in Gaffer Sam's lap, and he would hear him tell the great tales of Uncle Frodo and their journey, and they sounded so different when he told them. Mama told him those stories, but when she told them they sounded like stories. When Gaffer Sam told them, they sounded just like things that happened.

The bad thing about visiting Bag End was, when the visits were finally over, it would be a long time until another one.
