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.
