Ah, Isen knows how to tell a tale! And what a joy to see Bungo, a Baggins through and through if ever there was one, as enthralled as his wife and son! :)
God bless,

So, Gandalf would cast doubt on the influence he had on Isengar going off to sea, would he? Nice tie-in to your longer story, to which I look forward still, you know! Anyway, I can see that, given a chance, Isengar did wake up and was able to be clearheaded and free-spirited again.

Love the polar bears and the seals. Bungo's reaction reminded me of reading Herodotus the first time and laughing at his surety that the shadows wouldn't lie to the south if one went around the horn of Africa.

Author Reply: Yes, Isengar did wake up, and there may even be another adventure or two in the not-so-old hobbit... We'll see.

Herodotus. I haven't read Herodotus. Do you recommend him?

A good title and a great tale Lindelea. Now I must nip off and put the fire on!

Author Reply: O yes, a fire's the thing. *shiver*

Think I'll fill a hot-water bottle and seek my bed...

Don't know why wet cold (it's rainy now) is so much *colder* than dry cold! (Now that the ice from the weekend's snow-and-ice storm has melted.)

I just loved this. Partly because I have become hugely protective of poor Uncle Isen. He went off for adventure and saw the world - and came back broken to be despised by stick-in-the-mud hobbits with no awareness of anything beyond the horizon.

And then - it's such a good story!

Author Reply: Well thanks!

I do like Uncle Isen more and more as I get to know him. I think he's in for a better time, at least for the time being, as you can tell from the tone of this snippet.
