Very silly! I love it!

Author Reply: Thanks!

These letters are so much fun. My mum used to quote that saying at me too. I am glad that Sam got to use his rope. I always think that the stuff PJ has them using in the film is a trifle thin even for real elven rope.

Author Reply: Yes, funny how those old sayings stick with us.

That rope *did* look awfully thin. I should think it would be hard to get a grasp.

Thanks!

These are good fun, Lin :-) I like how he keeps talking about taters. I loved the barrow-wight - a fellow that stole the shirts off our backs! LOL

I hope you finish out the trip :-)

Author Reply: LOL, working on it. Also got Bill's trip to finish. Whew!

This is so charming--I love it!

My favorite line, which made me laugh out loud: "They badly need a good gardener here, but I donít think the wages would suit." :D

Author Reply: I do so love it when people quote their favourite lines!

Thanks!

*snerk* I do love Sam's style in this, LOL! The bit about asking directions was hysterical!

Well, we do know Sam will get his look at an oliphaunt soon enough!

Author Reply: LOL, ain't it the truth?

Big Folk and Oliphaunts--and they'll soon have their fill of both! Untrustworthy fellow indeed. And needing baths. Yes. Good thing Hamfast can't read anyway, I think.

Author Reply: LOL, I suppose he'd have to go down to the Ivy Bush and buy someone a beer in exchange for reading a letter to him. OTOH, considering the importance of gossip in the Shire, perhaps the reader would render the service for free!

"Reunion", eh? I thought I'd read that, but don't recall the details. (Of course, if I didn't leave feedback, then I probably didn't read it!) Will have to look it up again.

Oh, I'm so glad he realizes Mr. Frodo wants a good deal of looking after! Wonderful, Lindelea!

Okay--the Black Riders and Wights are "shady fellows" and Aragorn is "Grubby"? Now, that's a new one! How did I manage to miss this?

These letters are so dear! I especially love, " know, you always say Ponies sweat, gardeners perspire, and gentlehobbits sort of glow but to tell the truth, even gentlehobbits can be in need of a bath sometimes, though it would never do to say so." :)

Author Reply: Yes, a sort of variation on a genteel saying my mom used to quote from *her* mom. *g*

Oh this is a fun read for a Sunday evening. I had a choice - chores such as the ironing or catch up with the reading. Well no choice really was it especially with the temperature in my little bed-sit around the high 80's (31 degrees in modern money). When you tell me the temperature where you are has dropped 10 degrees the steam came out of my ears I was so jealous! You lucky person!

I liked the way you ended both chapters with Sam's nemesis - boats and water!

Author Reply: I am hot, sticky, and grumbly, sorry to say. Reading reviews is certainly cheering!

You know I hadn't noticed that coincidence! Fascinating!
