Three cheers for Menelcar and his loyalty to the hobbits!

Merry is likely to be melancholy after such a duty, and Joey can cheer him on the return to the City."

Bless Aragorn (and you) for thinking of every detail. :)

Author Reply: Aww, thanks! =)

Menelcar is certainly loyal to the hobbits, isn't he? K.G.

A gentle interlude here, and I hope that childless mother and motherless child will find in one another what they truly need.

Author Reply: Hopefully, they will! K.G.

The family continues to settle in, but still look forward to going back home, when and if that happens.

Author Reply: Yep, and really, can you blame them? Of course, if they did have to stay in Middle-earth, I could think of worse places to live in than Minas Tirith! =) K.G.

Only, "Did we miss Mommy's birthday?" Nothing important! Heh!

Glad the orphanage is being accomplished so well.

Author Reply: Oh, I don't know. I think a mommy's birthday is very important, indeed! =)

And I agree! That orphanage is definitely needed. K.G.

that is the second time you have called children young goats


It's lovely to imagine the King visiting children, and helping with their healing.

Author Reply: Isn't it, though?

So many of our slang terms would definitely sound odd in other time periods! Or in fantasy worlds. =)

"Well, just in case.” She bowed her head again. “Anyone else I forgot.

That's adorable.

Author Reply: Yes, it is, isn't it? =) K.G.

How wonderful to see this continued at last! And thank you for mentioning Vandamir, Dreamflower. It's lovely to see him again.

I loved seeing Menelcar again, and learning he was inspired to reunite with his own family after his adventures with Pippin in the Shire. Great inspiration!

And can appreciate Joey's willingness to get out of the Citadel while Pippin gets the violin in tune. Few things are harder on the ear than a screeching instrument far out of tune.

So glad you've recovered from the pneumonia, Dreamflower. God bless you as you continue to adjust to your mother's loss, Kathy. Love to both of you now.

Author Reply: Thanks, Larner. I'm glad you're enjoying this.

Can't blame Joey for wanting to get out while the getting was good! =)

Have you ever read Dreamflower's "Chance Encounter"? In that story, Menelcar explains his reunion with his family.

What a shock and delight it must have been for Menelcar to hear 'Frodo of the Nine-Fingers'!

He leaned over to Frodo. "I think I’ll go now," he said quietly.

Frodo grinned back at him. "You aren't his cousin; feel free to escape, lad, while you can.

That's fun exchange. My best wishes and love to you both, Kathy and Dreamflower!

Author Reply: Yeah, it is a fun exchange, isn't it? =) And I'm sure you're right about Menelcar.

My best wishes to you, too! K.G.

I am so glad to see Meneclar join the group. And I hope both of you are indeed doing better.

Author Reply: Thanks, Sharonb. We are, I'm glad to say. And I'm glad that Menelcar has joined the group, too! K.G.

I am so sorry for your loss. Even when you are expecting it, it is still never easy. Much love I send your way. She will always be in your heart, where My dad resides in my mine!

Thank you Dreamflower for letting us all know.

Many, many (((hugs)))


Author Reply: Thank you, Mirkwoodmaiden. My sister and I do have good memories of our mother, memories that we'll carry for the rest of our lives. You have good memories of your dad, don't you? K.G.
