The Hobbit Hole XIX - Tomorrow we may come this way...
The Freeper Hobbit Hole ^

Posted on 01/27/2005 9:59:05 AM PST by ecurbh

Welcome to The Hobbit Hole!

Tomorrow we may come this way...

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!

We've been watchin' our redneck neighbors... These are all plain-clothes cops - got radios, sidearms and cuffs on their belts, and we can't figure out what they're doin'.

There's two unmarked sedans and the SUV, a marked patrol car and ecurbh saw them bringing out some kind of little bags that they wrote on and then put in a bigger bag. Didn't look like they arrested anyone, no one sitting in any of the cars. That van belongs to a friend that is over all the time.

Thanks for the link, I'll bookmark it. ;-)

I love going through the pictures. And I still have resisted watching the Entmoot video. It should be as much of a "wow, remember that" for me as for everyone else when we watch it at ShootMoot.

Question. Were they living there before you moved in?

That may explain the witch's circle. *cue Twilight Zone music*

A different family lived there when I moved in.... it was all wooded then and had a nice feel then, like this place does when you get back here.... They moved out when the store logged off all the trees and made it hideous.

They left without incident or arresting anyone.... no idea what was up.

Maybe the folks at the store know.

I'm heading home. See you all later!

They may have left without incident or arresting, but mark my words, they were there for a reason, and *did* something.

Alas! I am home! I am happy!

Got a call from my brother. He's visiting tomorrow with his little family. He's seperating from the Navy next month and is doing the job search thang. Big job fair in our neck of the woods.

I'll get to see the cutest nephew ever and the new niece!

Does he have one of our Hobbit Hole knives? If not, I can send you one to give to him, with our thanks.

Good evening! Are you logged on?

Steve just called, he's on his way home from school. Said he got a lot done! That's good news! But it also means I gotta log off and spiff up the house real quick!

See you guys in the morning!

I'm going to pick up her son to take him and also pick up her daughter and let her hang out with me for a while. Give Celeste a couple of hours break.

What a good friend you are!
I've been busy since lunch. Just got back from Clare's Girl Scout meeting and had supper. Now I'm enjoying a nice cup of decaf Cinnamon Hazelnut coffee. Mmmm.

Ohh, excitement! When you described the cops bringing little bags out, I was thinking dope, but you said they didn't arrest anyone, so I guess that's not right. Hmmm.

I'd say, it would depend on whether I have a sewer hookup or a septic tank...

I should think so!

Can you imagine walking one of those things and having to pick up after it?

A hefty bag, a shovel and a wheelbarrow.

True. A special pit toilet with a really big one-holer is pretty much the only option if you're on a septic. A two-holer would be silly, except now that I think about it, who owns just one elephant? This is getting more complicated... and think of the toilet paper... you'd have to get one of those big newsprint rolls...

If you're on city sewer... they'd probly get wise pretty soon. You get one of those phonecalls from the sewer department... "hey buddy... we've had just about enough s#!+ outta you... "
