The Hobbit Hole XX - And take the hidden paths that run...
The Freeper Hobbit Hole ^

Posted on 03/05/2005 11:51:13 AM PST by HairOfTheDog

Welcome to The Hobbit Hole!

And take the hidden paths that run...

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!

Unfortunately, you're not in there unless you made one for yourself in the last thread! You can make them here:

You have to do a print screen and paste it into Photoshop or Paint and crop it, then upload it. Go for it!

However, four of us are holding weapons, two of those with a weapon in each hand... hmmmm...

Two of us are holding obvious coffee cups (some others have hidden coffee cups...)

Hi all.. I am the worst one on the ping list to post but thank you for keeping me on the tread. The Oscars were a little barren this year without a LOTR offering, weren't they?

I watched ROTK on DVD Thursday.. had seen it 5 times on big screen & this was first time since.

I am hoping that they will have one of the director's cuts (for all three) with all three movies shown on one day.. did that for Star wars & it was a sell out. about an hour &half break between movies & one ticket price for all three..

very cold & lotsa snow here still in NE Ohio... just a quick hello as I have things on stove...

Now if I could just size it down...there's not too much stuff is there??? My user name is the name of a character in a story I used to write, so there's no real connection with anything anyone else would be familiar with...and I figured since I blather about a Royal Navy sea captain the most, this would identify me the best. Looks like Pippin has her scarf!! LOL

I was just trying to make the hobbits look different. Not many choices.

But I've spent too much time on this already. I should be moving furniture. We're redoing our home office this afternoon/evening.

See y'all later, I'll be disconnecting the 'puter in a few minutes.

I'll check back tonite.
