I just read this, and got such a kick out of it! I used to walk on my dad's back all the time when I was a kid. I think he regrets that I'm not nearly so small and light these days. Now I'll always think back on those times as my practicing hobbit-craft. :)

Author Reply: I used to walk on my dad's back, too! I'm so glad you enjoyed this. I always love exploring "the lighter side" of Middle-earth.

A good foot-rub can cure many ills ... :-)

These were very enjoyable, thanks for writing!

Author Reply: Thank you so much. Gentle hurt/comfortcomfortcomfort is very soothing for me to read and write.

Yep, there is nothing quite like it. :-) And yep, of course Arwen would be good at it ...

Author Reply: It's such a pleasure when the hobbits can help Aragorn for a change.

Migli! for some reason, that was the funniest to me, followed by 'I can't see my lips' ... :-P

Author Reply: This was such a hoot to write! I'm glad it gave you a giggle. Good ol' Migli.

I'll try to endure the banana bread, and banana pudding, and banana shakes, and... *sighs heavily* If I have to...

Yep. I want banana bread now... :-)

Author Reply: *grins* I love introducing Frodo to new foods.

:-) I liked the fights breaking out over who got to donate their shirts...

Author Reply: Thanks, I like that part too! :)

Aww, how sweet! I love kitties--puppies, too!=) I also love how Frodo persuaded Sam to rest beside him in bed when he saw how tired Sam was.

Please, would you post the URL to Mew's story, the prequel to this one? I should like to read it!

Author Reply: Thank you, Kathy! I'm so glad you enjoyed this.

Email me, and I'll send you a copy of Mews's story. I don't believe it's posted anywhere except her Livejournal. shirebound1 (at)

What a sweet little story!

Much better than any medicine is it to have some hobbits around! They will always find a way to make you feel better :-)

I like the description "the conspiratorial huddle of hobbits" - very nice!

Author Reply: Hobbits are the BEST medicine, of course. It's such a joy to imagine scenes like this. Thank you!
