Just to let you know that I have added a small section to Chapter Two of A Journey With Frodo - "A Far Green Country". As far as possible, I'm trying to keep everything in chronological order and I believe this little episode took place during the six week training period.
The hobbits and their scale doubles have a dress rehearsal - in the car park!!
Elijah calls over to Dom's scale double, in a perfect English accent "Martin, you look just like him".
Dom: "You lucky, lucky man!!"
They conclude that Martin is very flattered by this remark!!
A contemplative moment for Elijah:
PJ: So, can we just strip everybody ... (I'm saying nothing)
... everybody down to their jackets please - you can keep the trousers on!!
Elijah appears to have invented some sort of game to keep them entertained.
"stand in a line, like you're waiting for the bus ...
and when I say 'mingle!!' you mingle ...
but don't cross the line 'cos then you lose points." Well, at least Billy looks interested!!
PJ: "Ok, if you could just do some walking around."
Elijah asks Billy, "How's the missus?"
Elijah: "What's your problem?"
This reminded me of ...
this - many years later at Collectormania!!
PJ giggles - "It's very bizarre, isn't it?"
PJ - "That's a good one for the old dvd!!"
I'm really hoping to get Chapter 7 ~ "Playtime" posted before I go into hospital on 27 April - but considering that's only 2 weeks away I don't hold out too much hope!! I'm going in for a knee replacement operation - I'm not sure exactly how long I'll be in but I know it will be at least a week. I'm well on my way to becoming the bionic woman - I've already had both hips replaced!! I expect to be off work for around 3 months so I should get a lot of extra computer time during that period (hee hee!!). I only work two days a week now but I still enjoy my time off - though a less drastic way of getting it would be preferred!!
Finally, I'd like to wish frolijah_fan_54 and harukameko a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Hope you're both having a wonderful day:)
