The Hobbit Hole XXIII - Let them go! Let them go!

Posted on 07/12/2005 8:11:36 PM PDT by HairOfTheDog

Welcome to The Hobbit Hole!

Let them go! Let them go!

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!

Worth our time or worth yours? :~D

We are a group of FReepers who all started chatting back when the LoTR movies were coming out, and have remained very good friends. This is a 'daily thread' where we chat with each other.

Welcome to the Hobbit Hole.

Either.

Ok. It makes sense, now that I have the context. I'd never seen one of these threads before, and it looked a little nonsensical without knowing the back story.

We're a bit nonsensical even when you know the backstory. ;-) But that's not necessarily a bad thing. Everyone needs a little nonsense in their lives!

You *do* realize that by starting the new Hole this late at night, any newcomers who come in and scan the first couple dozen posts are likely to be so frightened they never return, don't you?

Though I hope there are exceptions. It's always nice to have company!

As long as they don't spot the handcuff hooks in the ceiling, they probably won't be too scared right off the... oh, heck...

Dude, we like scaring off the newbies. That ensures that all future joiners of the Hole are weird. Like the rest of us.

More emails today...
My name is [redacted]. I am the Commander of [unit redacted] here in Baghdad. My BN Commander gave me your email address and bragged about the high quality of knives your sending soldiers. Let me first say that I've read your reasons for sending the knives and I agree that they will remain long after the salsa and sun block is gone. I really appreciate what your are doing and would like to to ask for an LMF II for myself, First Sergeant, and Executive Officer. Many of my "Joe's" have received your knives and they really like them. I wanted to get these two outstanding individuals something for their hard work and these knives would be perfect.

We are defending freedom in (OIF III).

Thank you again, I plan to post a donation to your cause.
I think it is awesome that you are supporting the soldiers. If possible I would like to see about getting a knife before I head off to support OEF. Let me know if there is a cost involved and I will do what ever it takes. Thanks and if you are ever in Boise, ID feel free to look us up (If we have not left yet).

Best of luck and keep up the good work. It means a lot to us that we have your support.

And I am working on adding more stuff to the website. I have added a photo gallery for both moot pictures and some of the photos sent to us by the troops. So far I have uploaded some pics smaagee sent us of the Saddam palace in Tikrit.

I also plan on adding a guestbook function for folks to leave feedback, and will be posting some of the comments already recieved via email.
