TIME - March 29

March 29, 3019 (S.R. 1419)
1. Minas Tirith prepares.
(not from the appendices)
..."...tidings now came by swift riders from Cair Andros of all that was done, and the City made ready for the coming of the King. Merry was summoned and rode away with the wains that took store of goods to Osgiliath... ...by ship to Cair Andros; but Faramir did not go, for now being healed he took upon him his authority and the stewardship, although it was only for a little while, and his duty was to prepare for one who should replace him.
...And Éowyn did not go, though her brother sent word begging her to come to the field of Cormallen. And Faramir wondered at this, but he saw her seldom... ...and she dwelt still in the Houses of Healing and walked alone in the garden, and her face grew pale again and it seemed that in all the City she only was ailing and sorrowful."

Happy Birthday to the lovely Flower Lady of Backbencher Pub.
... On my March 2010 trip to Wellington, NZ, one of my must-do stops was The Backbencher Gastropub across the street from The Behive Parliament Building in Wellington. I snapped a picture of her
enchanted by her diligent care of the beautiful flower boxes. When I returned to Wellington in March 2018, one of the first places I made for was The Backbencher to see if the flower boxes were still there. The Pub had suffered a devasting fire in 2012.
... Down the street as I approached the Pub, not only could I see it had been restored and there was a familiar person still diligently working on the many flower boxes. Elated… I rushed to see her closer and get another picture of her at work. She spotted me and became uncomfortable… hiding her face behind her upraised arm. I knew I needed to approach her and reassure her I was no threat. As we talked, I told her that I'd seen her 8 years earlier and was so moved by her lovely flower boxes. We struck up a long, friendly conversation that I still cherish to this day. I've sent her a birthday card each year ever since, and she writes back to me of how her flowers and she are doing. She is one of my most cherished experiences while in NZ.


We have been there and back again.
