ainur has just left Hobbiton.

Yeah, not too much to them. but Tolkien was an author, and wouln't let a possibility slip. While I reverence his accomplishment with "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Silmarillion," I realize that he may have been 'hedging his bets' when it come to the works published in his lifetime. The Stone Giants were just a possibility when he created them in the text of "The Hobbit" etc., but I have no doubt that he knew exactly where they fit into the scheme of Middle Earth. He just never got around to writing about them in more detail.
Yet all the while I sit and think of times there were before,
I listen for returning feet and voices at the door.
