The Hobbit Hole VIII - Still round the corner we may meet...
See our freeper.the-hobbit-hole.net home page! ^

Posted on 04/06/2004 6:53:09 PM PDT by HairOfTheDog

Welcome to The Hobbit Hole!

Still round the corner we may meet...

New verse:

Upon the hearth the fire is red,
Beneath the roof there is a bed;
But not yet weary are our feet,
Still round the corner we may meet
A sudden tree or standing stone
That none have seen but we alone.
Tree and flower and leaf and grass,
Let them pass! Let them pass!
Hill and water under sky,
Pass them by! Pass them by!

Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate,
And though we pass them by today,
Tomorrow we may come this way
And take the hidden paths that run
Towards the Moon or to the Sun.
Apple, thorn, and nut and sloe,
Let them go! Let them go!
Sand and stone and pool and dell,
Fare you well! Fare you well!

Home is behind, the world ahead,
And there are many paths to tread
Through shadows to the edge of night,
Until the stars are all alight.
Then world behind and home ahead,
We’ll wander back to home and bed.
Mist and twilight, cloud and shade,
Away shall fade! Away shall fade!
Fire and lamp, and meat and bread,
And then to bed! And then to bed!

The biggest problem is that I remember things differently...and they all say my memory is wrong.

Ha! I get that one from my brother too! And he is so WRONG!!! Of course, he is the one who tries to keep his past from his kids too. His kids have learned a lot from their favorite aunt over the years! BWAAAAHAHAHAHAHA

I am draggin' you into the new hole you see? :-)

Oh, our choir was exhausting too, had to practice for Thursday and Sunday. I think we'll do ok.

I really need to get to bed earlier, I just haven't adjusted to the time change yet.

Hey, when are you coming down for your son's graduation?

Pinging all computer types for help with what appears to be a virus problem I picked up a couple hours ago. I'm logging on from a different computer, as I'm unable to open Windows Explorer, my email, or Norton Internet Security with my regular one. Whatever I picked up appears to have disable Norton Internet Security, along with other features, and also, if I try right-clicking on the tool bar to enable it, it locks up my system. Same thing happens if I try to open My Computer, etc. In general, everything is running slower than normal and locks up if I try to open up a number of programs. However, I *can* get online; but once it connects, if I try to open up Windows Explorer it locks up. Any suggestions on how I might enable Norton Internet Security (so I can download some antivirus updates), to start with? Any help will be appreciated.

Do you have an antivirus CD? Can you boot to that CD? A bootable CD, even without the latest virus definitions, might be all you need.
