From the noteboook  by Anso the Hobbit 4 Review(s)
Grey WondererReviewed Chapter: 20 on 8/25/2005
This was so sweet. I loved the way the art of smoking was passed down from one generation to the next. I also liked the fact that Merry and Pippin were still adventurous enough to teach young Frodo how to smoke without exactly having Sam's blessing. The last bit with Merry remembering the his smoking lessons ties it all together perfectly.

Author Reply: Ah, thank you! :) That is what older cousins and "uncles" are for, isn`t it? I`m glad you liked it!

Ah--the passing of the torch--or (in this case) the pouch of the pipeweed and the strikers to light the pipe with!

Bless tradition!

Other than a couple of meaningless typos, a wonderful tale!

Author Reply: Tradition can sometimes be a wonderful thing! I`m glad you liked it.

Sorry about the typos, that sometimes happens when the story isn`t betaed. I`ll have a look at them.

That was wonderfully done! The art of smoking passed on from cousin to cousin and finally to Frodo-lad.
I loved it, when Merry and Pippin felt like guilty, mischievous little boys, when Sam found them with his son.

Did Pippin at first really "swallow" the smoke?

Author Reply: Thank you! And yes, Pip did at first swallow the smoke. :D

Oh, Anso! This is absolutely perfect! So hobbity and sweet, and just what I hoped for when I gave the bunny to you! *does a little dance all around the computer* *hugs*hugs*hugs* *THANK YOU!* *grins and grabs story all for myself*!

Author Reply: :D *grins happily back at you* I`m so glad you liked it! I had initially another idea (see Merry`s Mushrooms) but the pipe-torch worked out well to I think! *hugs you back* Thanks for giving me the bunny! It`s standing nicely on my desk looking at me with the paper folded in it`s paws and reminding me to sit myself down and write! :D
