*after a looong absence from the Downs, I am as happy as anything about March the 25th*

I don't think can do anything else on the 25th other than going over the Sil all over again. So it's a quiet...

Sam's books

I thought that PJ's take on Sam in the ending of the movies is touching. I noticed that he had a couple of books with him as he approaches Frodo as soon as he enters Bag End. The way Sam carries...

Oatmeal

It always happens right before I eat a bowl of oatmeal (the rolled oats kind). Just before I dig in, I feel as if I'm having a breakfast at the Shire.
