The Hobbit Hole X - That none have seen but we alone.
See our freeper.the-hobbit-hole.net home page! ^

Posted on 06/01/2004 9:35:59 AM PDT by HairOfTheDog

Welcome to The Hobbit Hole!

...That none have seen but we alone.

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!

When I'm Sixty-Four
(The Beatles)

When I get older losing my hair, many years from now
Will you still be sending me a valentine,
Birthday greetings, bottle of wine?
If I'd been out til quarter to three would you lock the door?
Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I'm sixty-four?

Oh, you'll be older too - Ah
And if you say the word, I could stay with you

I could be handy mending a fuse when your lights have gone
You can knit a sweater by the fireside,
Sunday mornings, go for a ride
Doing the garden, digging the weeds, who could ask for more?
Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I'm sixty-four?

Every summer we could rent a cottage in the Isle of White,
If it's not too dear
We shall skrimp and save, grandchildren at your knees,
Vera, Chuck, and Dave

Send me a postcard, drop me a line stating point of view
Indicate precisely what you mean to say,
Yours sincerely, wasting away
Give me an answer, fill in a form, mine forevermore
Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I'm sixty-four?

While at mom's yesterday, we taped (and watched most of) the 90 days to D-Day show on A&E with Tom Selleck. 'Twas pretty good. We also hung out on the history channel which had a special on 5-star generals.

Mom and I also went to the obligatory shopping trip. It was originally for some vanilla for the homemade ice cream, but ended up at Linens and Things. Got a rug for Abigail's room that sorta matches her walls. BTW, the ice cream turned out very well, and was almost gone when we left mom's house. The next time I go over there, I get to bring the ice cream maker back home with me :-)

I took Abigail to the neighbor's house to show her off. They adored her. Something about babies! She also showed off for her Gamma (as elf-boy calls her). She cried and wiggled nonstop. Personally, I think she was hungry. Abigail is always hungry.

I am in denial of Spongebob. At least there's no way anyone can make me go. It ain't happening.

I am, however, excited about going to Harry Potter this weekend. We might dress up. My sibs are happy about it, and my best friend saw the premiere and says it's really excellent. She should know, she's more into it than I am.

As soon as the jedis finish lunch, I'm going dress shopping! I saw a great dress on TV the other day...a cotton one-piece pull-over sleeveless dress, floral print...

I figure something like that would be nice to wear on the beach...but you say it might be cold?

babygirl has definite hobbit tendencies. She knows all about second breakfast, brunch, elevensies, noon meal, tea time, and all the others.
