These have learned their lessons well enough, at least. I always believed Pippin would do well teaching swordsmanship.

Author Reply: Yes, he would, wouldn't he? =)

Many well wishes for your medical work, Dreamflower. Get better and stay with us for a long time. We have already lost "beyond the circles" too many beloved authors here. I loved the joke about praying for patience. That does seem to happen!

Author Reply: Yeah, really! Well, I second that motion; I donít want Dreamflower following Fiondil and the other deceased authors into eternity, either! K.G.

Author Reply: And yeah, regarding praying for patience, I know what you mean! =) K.G.

It's nice to imagine preparations for the return of the King being aided by folks from Middle-earth *and* our Earth.

chicken soup with dumplings that you like so much, and some bread and a little cup of warm milk with some honey in it.

That sounds so comforting.

Author Reply: Yeah, it does, doesn't it? =) K.G.

"'Hit it off'? Is it the custom in your world for courting couples to hit one another?"

How strange many of our figures of speech would sound to them!

I enjoyed this chapter very much. Kathy, would you please give Dreamflower my best wishes for a smooth and complete recovery from everything? I think about her so often.

Author Reply: LOL! Indeed. =) It's true. The figures of speech we're familiar with and don't think twice about would indeed sound very odd to the people of Middle-earth.

Sure, I'll give Dreamflower your message. K.G.

Ah, it does sound like all's well in the end with all of the children's adventures to this point. Now, just waiting for the big reunion.

Author Reply: Yeah, no kidding! =) K.G.

All have had some fault in their mistakes, but not all misunderstandings or accidents are due to the fault of just one agent or act. So it is with all of the situations faced by the McCloud family at the moment. And the words spoken in Steve's heart are true--we need freedom in order to learn as much from our mistakes as from the teaching given us by others.

Author Reply: That's true. Kaylee will definitely have the chance to learn from hers, as will the rest of her family. K.G.

"You have been as brave as a hobbit" ... I do love that new Gondorian saying!

Author Reply: You can thank Dreamflower for that saying; she came up with it! =) K.G.

Ah, good. Now if we can only be as at ease about Joey, Jenn and Kevin. Several someones do seem to be watching over the children and whole family well. Makes you wonder sometimes how our guardian angels survive watching our lives and the almost heart attacks we must surely give them.

Author Reply: Yeah, isn't that the truth?! K.G.

Being tired and/or excited can lead to such mistakes. May they all find comfort in the fact they are together and have others to aid and comfort them as they learn more and do their best to make things better.

Author Reply: Definitely! I agree. And Jennifer's near mistake arose from the fact that she was too tired, and from the fact that she can't read Westron very well. K.G.

The poor children. I'm sorry that Kaylee is blaming herself for Sador's injury, but at least they are close enough to the apothecary shop to get the aid needed.

Author Reply: And thank goodness for that! Sad to say, she IS blaming herself for Sador's injuries, but although she is indeed at fault for failing to obey her father's order to stick to the Citadel gardens and the Houses of Healing, she's not to blame for a cart driver driving too fast down a city street. K.G.
