TIME - September 23 [In reply to] Can't Post

Today in Middle-earth.

September 23, 2941 (S.R. 1341)
1. The Dwarves and Bilbo come to Lake-town.
(from Karen Wynn Fonstad, The Atlas of Middle-earth)
..."[The] dwarves were brought into the town amid scenes of astonishing enthusiasm. They were all doctored and fed and housed and pampered in the most delightful and satisfactory fashion. A large house was given up to Thorin and his company; boats and rowers were put at their service; and crowds sat outside and sang songs all day, or cheered if any dwarf showed so much as his nose."

September 23, 3001 (S.R. 1401)
1. After a long expected party!!
(not from the appendices)
..."Then a number of other people came (without orders)... ...By mid-day, when even the best-fed were out and about again, there was a large crowd at Bag End, uninvited but not unexpected.
...Frodo was waiting on the step, smiling, but looking rather tired and worried. He welcomed all the callers, but he had not much more to say than before... ...'Mr. Bilbo Baggins has gone away; as far as I know, for good.' Some of the visitors he invited to come inside, as Bilbo had left 'messages' for them.
...Inside in the hall there was piled a large assortment of packages and parcels and small articles of furniture. On every item there was a label tied....
......Frodo had a very trying time that afternoon. A false rumour that the whole household was being distributed free spread like wildfire; and before long the place was packed with people who had no business there, but could not be kept out...
...'...It's time to close the shop, Merry,' Frodo said. 'Lock the door, and don't open it to any one today, not even if they bring a battering-ram.' Then he went to revive himself with a belated cup of tea.
...He had hardly sat down, when there came a soft knock at the front-door. 'Lobelia again most likely,' he thought. 'She must have thought of something really nasty, and have come back again to say it. It can wait.'
...He went on with his tea. The knock was repeated, much louder, but he took no notice. Suddenly the wizard's head appeared at the window.
...'If you don't let me in, Frodo, I shall blow your door right down your hole and out through the hill.'"

September 23, 3018 (S.R. 1418)
1. Four Riders enter the Shire before dawn. The others pursue the Rangers eastward, and then return to watch the Greenway.
(from the appendices-no text)

2. A Black Rider comes to Hobbiton at nightfall, Frodo leaves Bag End.
(from the appendices)
..."...Frodo was going on foot... ...for pleasure and a last look at the Shire as much as any other reasonówas to walk from Hobbiton to Bucklebury Ferry, taking it fairly easy.
...'I shall get myself a bit into training, too,' he said, looking at himself in a dusty mirror in the half-empty hall. He had not done any strenuous walking for a long time, and the reflection looked rather flabby, he thought....
...'...It's going to be a fine night,' he said aloud. 'That's good for a beginning. I feel like walking. I can't bear any more hanging about. I am going to start, and Gandalf must follow me.' He turned to go back, and then stopped, for he heard voices, just round the corner by the end of Bagshot Row. One voice was certainly the old Gaffer's; the other was strange, and somehow unpleasant. He could not make out what it said, but he heard the Gaffer's answers, which were rather shrill. The old man seemed put out...
...'...I am sick of questions and curiosity about my doings...' (Frodo thought). He had half a mind to go and ask the Gaffer who the inquirer was; but he thought better (or worse) of it, and turned and walked quickly back to Bag End...
...'...Sam!' he called. 'Sam! Time!'
...'Coming, sir!' came the answer from far within, followed soon by Sam himself, wiping his mouth. He had been saying farewell to the beer-barrel in the cellar...
......Frodo shut and locked the round door, and gave the key to Sam. 'Run down with this to your home, Sam!' he said... '...Well, now we're off at last!' said Frodo. They shouldered their packs and took up their sticks, and walked round the corner to the west side of Bag End. 'Good-bye!' said Frodo, looking at the dark blank windows. He waved his hand, and then turned and (following Bilbo, if he had known it) hurried after Peregrin down the garden-path..."

3. Gandalf having tamed Shadowfax rides from Rohan.
(from the appendices)
[Gandalf addressed the Council about Shadowfax] "'Never before had any man mounted him, but I took him and I tamed him, and so speedily he bore me that I reached the Shire when Frodo was on the Barrow-downs, though I set out from Rohan only when he set out from Hobbiton.'"

September 23, 3019 (S.R. 1419)
1. The hobbits enjoy their time with Bilbo in the comfort of Imladris.
(not from the appendices-no text)
...It became quite a talent of the four to overlap stories, expand on events, and share comments while Bilbo's face turned from one to the other. Puffing slowly on his pipe, he would occasionally close his eyes, abruptly grunt in understanding or gasp startled; but he wouldn't ask questions until that tale had been told. He knew from experience that a year's worth of adventure would be full of stories to come alive in the telling and that this needed to flow from the teller as it will. Gandalf joined them later, but was careful not to influence the tale until sharing his version later.

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.
