The Hobbit Hole XXX - Then world behind and home ahead...
http://freeper.the-hobbit-hole.net/ ^

Posted on 06/28/2006 10:14:11 AM PDT by HairOfTheDog

Welcome to The Hobbit Hole!

Then world behind and home ahead

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!

A very appropriate title for a new thread, with Ruthy and Ramius moving to their new home today :~)

Sometimes the lines in the verse we've been using for titles are very appropriately timed :~)

I am hoping to time "And then to bed! And then to bed!" For sometime in September :~)

Ah, but what about ~Posibilities~?

Thread before last was Rosie's move, wasn't it?

Seems like something big happens every thread. Maybe XGI will get engaged this thread??

Ah, the ~Possibilities~!

I can see your point...the ~Possibility~ that your house might be washed away during the upcoming hurricane season isn't too intriguing...

heh heh heh!

The little squirrel is still alive though not conscious, and I think just in shock. He felt cold, but I'll be danged if he doesn't still have a heartbeat. I covered him up, thinking warm is better, but really, I think he's gonna die. I still see no visible injuries. If it's just shock, can he recover?

I would think so...raise his hind legs up slightly. Seriously, prop them up on a little cushion or a rolled up hand towel or something...

Well, I guess you gotta roll him on his side and prop up his back half. That's all you can do for emotional shock. If it's shock due to internal bleeding, it might help but it'll die anyway.

Did the cat shake it? It could have "Shaken Baby" syndrome of sorts...brains rattled in it's head to the point of coma but not death. In which case the brain will eventually herniate and that will be that.

If my house gets washed away, it likely means that Nashville is on the coast.

Trees falling on us are a different story.

And not the least bit funny.

Tis okay, I think msdrby gets pinged, but I don't remember my passwords. I use only use msdrby when I'm at my mother's. When I'm at home, I use peanut gallery. Eventually PG will be karateboy's.

OK - I flipped him over and propped him up. He's even less responsive than before... but danged if he doesn't still have a heartbeat. He's fading, I'm afraid.

He's in the back of the Ranger, in the canopy. It's getting warm in there with the sun, and I covered him back up. Probably, when we get back tonight he'll be dead.

True. Bad things happening, though possible, seem rare in the Hole. Seems like good things happen every thread though.

R&R have already started this one off on the right foot!

He may have had a stroke...or heart attack with lack of oxygen to the brain.

Likely not suffering, though...

He doesn't seem to be suffering, no. If he were wrything or something, I'd have to act to end it.

Anyone know how to do a feeding tube in a squirrel? :~D

I once found a dead crawdad when I was a kid and dissected it to find out what killed it. Used the dissecting kit that my folks got for my brother.

Never found out the COD though...
