Apologies to anyone wondering what had happened to this chapter! I had hoped to get it out before Christmas but with the usual last-minute Christmas panic had to admit defeat. And the New Year hasn't had the best of starts for us, mainly due to illness, then more illness and now ... more illness!! But this is no place for tales of woe - so, finally, here is Chapter 31 which covers the Oscars of 2002, my own night-long Oscar vigil and Frodo's arrival at Bree.
For anyone unfamiliar with my pet project, 'A Journey With Frodo' (a work in progress) is the story of Elijah Wood's experience in becoming Frodo, from back in 1998 when the LOTR movies were just a whisper up to the triumphant Oscars of Feb 2004. In reliving Elijah's journey, and mine, I am using everything I can lay my hands on - behind-the-scenes material from the various dvd's, magazine articles, books, internet sites, tv coverage, word-of-mouth info, etc. Previous chapters can be found here:
