Subject:HAPPY BIRTHDAY FRODO & BILBO!!
Time:01:46 pm
It's that special day again! A very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to dear Frodo and Bilbo. In honour of the occasion I'm reposting part of one of my 'Journey' chapters - the one that includes the scene from FOTR which is probably my favourite scene of Frodo and Bilbo together:)


Hello Frodo my lad!


There and Back Again, A Hobbit's Tale by Bilbo Baggins! This is wonderful!

I meant to go back; wonder at the powers of Mirkwood, visit Lake-town, see The Lonely Mountain again.

But age it seems has finally caught up with me.




I miss the Shire

I spent all my childhood pretending I was off somewhere else.

Off with you on one of your adventures.

But my own adventure turned out to be quite different.

I'm not like you Bilbo.

My dear boy.

I love this scene too. The lighting is so beautiful, and the tenderness between Frodo and Bilbo is heartwarming.

I love this and the one with them on the way to the Grey Havens, heads resting against each other. The films do a great job celebrating all the pure love stories that are throughout this tale. Thank you for adding to it! :)

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

In this scene, I think we learn all we need ever know of Frodo. As naked, emotionally, here, as he will be on the slope of Mt. Doom, though in a different sort of way. Not only do we see the strength of his bond with Bilbo, but those things which drives him as a person are in much evidence here.

In a movie full of memorable scenes, this is my favorite, for what it shows of Frodo, a person whose life was made of moments of "joys like swords"

thank you for posting this, Paulie! Perfect for *the* day.

Many thanks Jan - it really is a very beautiful and tender scene and, as you say, reveals so much of Frodo. Glad you enjoyed it:)
