Whenever I drive past one, on the way to my weekly book-burning session, I cry on my cousin's (who is also my beloved husband) shoulder. How dare they? <P>Ooooooooooohh *ouch!* Good one!

I'd not noticed any slappin' going on in the Gamgee family. I always interpreted the Gaffer's attitude towards Sam to be rough affection. No, he's not a gentleman like Bilbo, he's a gardener and...

I went to another message board (not LotR), and it wasn't terrible, but there wasn't the welcoming feeling that you get here. It's nice to pop on the Downs and hang out smilies/cool.gif
