Is Oin hard of hearing?

Is Oin hard of hearing? Can't Post


At first I wasn't really paying attention and thought it was some kind of musical instrument or strange smoking device, but I watched the trailer again recently and noticed that Oin actually holds the thing next to his ear. I can only find images of him using it during the Bag End scenes, when Thorin is addressing the dwarves. Is Oin hard of hearing? I wonder why the device turns up and not to the side - still quite interesting!

I'm wearing a towel.

Frito groaned. "I wish I had never been born," he said.

"Do not say that, dear Frito," cried Orlon. "It was a happy minute for us all when you were born."

The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began
Now far ahead the Road has gone
And I must follow, if I can

"Thorin sat up with a start. 'Something is not right,' he muttered to himself as he stood up and
looked towards the mirror . . . . . . . . . 'Durin's bones', he gasped, 'what's happened to my beard?'"

very few people took advantage of the 75 different Hobbit illustrations I prepared for avatars [In reply to] Can't Post

so I figured I needed to burn through a few on my own.

I am sticking to birds, so far. :-)

check gramma's party thread to find the links to avatars and footers for the party.
