We're usually close to the businesses' doors [In reply to] Can't Post

Almost always outside, though a couple places have us set up inside. Our girls are old enough that they handle the weather fairly well, but there's only so much we can do to get around the lack of activity.

" 'Fair lady Goldberry!' said Frodo at last, feeling his heart move with a joy that he did not understand. He stood as he had at times stood enchanted by fair elven-voices; but the spell that was now laid upon him was different: less keen and lofty was the delight, but deeper and nearer to mortal heart; marvellous and yet not strange."

Chapter VII: In the House of Tom Bombadil; FOTR's

Faerie contains many things besides elves and fays and besides dwarfs, witches, trolls, giants or dragons; it holds the seas, the sun, the moon, the sky; and the earth, and all things that are one in it: tree and bird, water and stone, wine and bread, and ourselves, mortal men, when we are enchanted."

Yes, I knew you would understand Sil... [In reply to] Can't Post

What was very funny is that as a last-minute substitution (and as the tallest and most imposing cast member) he is also playing the Executioner - but didn't mention it to me. So he walked by right before the opening scene with a black executioner's mask over his head and my first thought was "OK. New management style kiddo? Bit heavy handed..." Then of course in later scenes it made sense!LaughLaughLaugh

Great excitement in the Kimi household! The Lumpkins are coming! [In reply to] Can't Post

What an abundance of riches lately: Lily and the Gaffer last weekend, and today the Lumpkins. We're *so* looking forward to seeing them again.

After days of golden weather, it's drizzly and humid today. Hope hopefully we'll still manage a stroll around the grounds.

Happy weekend, all!
