Good point about the "others"! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd never picked up on that before, but you're right: Tolkien's writing that Bilbo had other adventures, but not detailing them, is akin to Gandalf's "nameless" creatures at the depths of the Moria chasm. We're left to imagine what is lurking in the shadows behind the curtains!

(It also leaves the door wide open for fan-fiction...)
