Welcome to The Hobbit Hole!
|New Zealander builds Hobbit hole
A New Zealand man has built a Hobbit house.
Carl Gifford, a stonemason from Wellington, says he used a 10-tonne digger to make the hole.
He's put rocks either side of the front door and plans to install a chimney and lantern on top.
He told the Evening Post he was embarrassed as he was constructing the home.
He said: "I must admit I was hiding as the cars were driving past. I thought, 'These people think I'm an idiot'."
The house is part of a series of stonework mounds, designs and sculptures dotted around his land.
"I'm just having a bit of fun. Things that were built by those ancient people like caves have always fascinated me."
Come on! Come in!
Oh! Nice new Hole this morning!!
If Corin is closest to the bathroom, I want the room closest to the kitchen.
Sorry I haven't been on here much of late... I'll try to stay in touch better. Been busy with our horse forum, and not real active here...
Here's a recent picture I took of Wicket, one of the kittens from last year, stalking the horses when I had them in the yard.
The three kittens we kept from those litters have only just recently been let out - to be free cats, and learn to climb trees...
38! Hokey smokes!
Huh? what? I am awake!
no wait I lied.... zzzzz
Nice new shiny thread! Thanks for the ping!
How’s Homer’s medication working?
Slowing down but still chugging along after all these years...
WooHoo! A nice, tidy new Hobbit Hole! I’ll have to go back and read “The Hobbit”. It’s been years since I read it last!
It will be fun discussing the movie stuff, as we get more info about it.
The story of muh life.
Good morning, everyone!
60 AND 70 thousand replies?
Well that makes me feel a little better about myself.
Happy to help.
I would say the jury's still out. He still itches, but he will still itch some as the outbreaks heal. I'd like to think this stuff will work, but we're just not sure yet that it is. ~Everyone~ is starting to itch now too, so we're going to treat everyone for fleas too, tomorrow, just to be sure we're covering all the bases.
I can't go get the stuff today because my new computer is arriving today!
This old Dell I'm typing on is a decade old. It's really been a workhorse. I'll be a little sad to retire it, but it's failing, and it is slow, and hubby has talked me into a shiny new one.
