|Oh my! Isn't it just like Butterbur to discourse on tea blends while the fate of Middle-earth hangs in the balance!|
"That letter was important! I told you at the time! Who knows what mischief might come of it having been delayed?" -- Oh my! again -- and where to begin? Just the slight matter of Frodo's injury on Weathertop, with all that portended for his future. Difficult weeks filled with worry, exhaustion, and a totally inadequate amount of food. But if the letter had been sent, the hobbits wouldn't have had their Barrow-blades....
Nob ... gave wary glances first at his employer and then at Gandalf, nodded toward the food, and retreated for the door, saying, “I’ll leave the two of you to it, shall I?” He then scurried out the door and closed it firmly behind him. -- A wise hobbit.
Author Reply: How well you have caught it, eiluj! And it's so true that there would have been little chance of them coming by the Barrow-blades had they left earlier and not gone by way of the Old Forest.
As for Nob--he certainly has a good sense of self-preservation, doesn't he? (Grin!) Glad you enjoyed it!

|Ha ha ha! I'd love to see Barliman with Ioreth!|
Author Reply: Oh, I do agree, Agape! The two of them can both chatter on, can't they? heh!
