Happiness: money matters, but less than we think and not in the way that we think. Family is important and so are friends, while envy is toxic -- and so is excessive thinking. Beaches are optional. Trust is not. Neither is gratitude. - The Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner as summarized by Lily Fairbairn. And a bit of the Hobbit reading thrown in never hurts. - NottaSackville

So obvious. Once you see it [In reply to] Can't Post

5 is Goodchild. Which is Sam's mother's maiden name-- went searching the family trees.


Also-- I did utilize my Complete Guide to Middle Earrh by Robert Foster and a thesaurus so not getting it out of thin air or my limited brain pan.

sevilodorf - a winner [In reply to] Can't Post

I certainly didn't expect anyone to get them ALL! Unsure

#9 is correct
and Goodchild for #5 is Good for a second try.

Keep an eye pealed for 'Part the Two' coming in a few days. Cool

Thanks for playing ! Smile

Late thoughts from the teapot.... [In reply to] Can't Post

1. Endless Stair
2. Bill the pony
3. Free Fair
4. The Paths of the Dead, perhaps?
5. Goodchild
6. The Greenway
7. Hmm..... *scratches ear*...... aha - Arkenstone!
8. Phial/File of Galadriel!
9. Sorry, you got me. I would offer Spellbound Pass or Enchanted Pass, 'cept I don't think either of those are in Tolkien!
10. Golden Perch
11. Lightfoot
12. Wandering Days (daze) - I confess I looked up Roaming/Lost/Wandering in the Complete Guide Blush
13. Kingsfoil
14. Northern Waste
15. Ring of Doom

That was fun! I've missed your games! *Passes Bracegirdle a cup of tea and some scones*

For still there are so many things
that I have never seen:
in every wood and every spring
there is a different green. . .

Thank you for playing Ms. Mouse. A super, I say super job. Yes siree [In reply to] Can't Post

In case you haven’t peeked:

#4 “Paths” sorta, kinda works – but how about…
A stride of the deceased might be called the Gait (Gate) of the Dead.

9. Sorry, you got me. I would offer Spellbound Pass or Enchanted Pass, 'cept I don't think either of those are in Tolkien!
Oh so close! How 'bout: The bewitched transfer of a football is a Haunted Pass?

12. Wandering Days (daze) - I confess I looked up Roaming/Lost/Wandering in the Complete Guide Blush.
Ah, confession is good for the soul, but unnecessary, as not looking up wasn’t part of the ‘rules’.

Thanks for the tea & scones. . Tongue Always a delicious joyful pleasure to visit the comfy teapot.

Ah - I get it..... [In reply to] Can't Post

Gate/Gait makes much more sense than 'Paths' I'd never have thought of haunted as being similar to bewitched, but I suppose..... hmmm...
Have some more tea! Tongue
