I love your take on Ring Around The Rosy.

Author Reply: Thank you! It's such fun to think up Middle-earth equivalents. (Since "Ring around the Rosy" was about the Black Death, I didn't feel right using that one... though I do recall a plague in JRRT's writings. From Tokien Gateway: The Great Plague, also known as the Dark Plague was a disastrous pestilence that killed untold numbers of people). Anyhow, knowing hobbits, the rhyme in the "fish" game probably goes something like "fish - wish - dish"... LOL!

More coming soon. I was very swamped at work, but have had a little free time today to work towards new chapters in this and the dog story, so hoping to post something before the weekend.

I appreciate your stopping by to leave an encouraging word!

Joy to find this here! Love the exchange of Tookish charges, and Bill taking part in the song in a pony's way.

Author Reply: I'm glad you're feeling well enough to read! It must be great fun for Pippin to be able to accuse others of nonsense on a Tookish scale...

Tuneful, hobbit songs are, even when breathlessly sung, and heartening, and I bob my head to keep the rhythm, my own way of joining in the song.

I like that. Dear Bill!

Thanks for stopping to leave a good word. This has hit a difficult stretch where lighter moments are getting harder to come by. Poor hobbits, and poor Bill!
