Oh, hilarious, with small Ferdi insisting on staying limp to defy the lasses! Oh, this is a rich one! Dear Ferdi and Merry!

Between his sister and his cousins and his mother, young Ferdi is in danger of becoming a bit of a wuss. It's just as well that Merry is there to bring out the stalker and the archer and the generally resilient hobbit we know and love. Although maybe that doesn't seem the case just at the moment!

Author Reply: Well, perhaps then this is the beginning of putting paid to future possibilities of wussiness. Ferdi's going to find out he's not just a babe-in-arms, at the mercy and whim of those who are "older and wiser" but a hobbit in his own right...

Ooh! 'Mud, mud, glorious mud! Nothing quite like it for cooling the blood!' &g* But I'm not sure that I'd want to share it with the pigs!

Author Reply: Did you just make that up, or is it a poem from somewhere? Sounds a little like Gilbert and Sullivan, whom the little hobbits have just discovered through a local production of "Pirates of Penzance".

Oh dear! Well, Merry's rescued Ferdi well and truly from the awful clutches of the lasses, and he's now delivered into the well-meaning clutches but firm of his mother. But what an adventure in the meanwhile--the pig! the mud! the dirty ribbons! I have a feeling that sister and cousins will be in just as much trouble as Merry!

At least Ferdi's had once chance to get as dirty as he likes for once, LOL! Poor little kid!

And I haven't forgotten grown-up Ferdi saying something about the two of them going off to Michel Delving...

Author Reply: Well, I expect Ferdi won't really mind the bath to follow... he likes hot water! (literal hot water that is, not the figurative kind)

And yes, you're right, he did say something to that effect... and Merry is busy thinking and laying plans... so something just might happen, you never know.
