We are the fighting Uruk-Hai! We slew the great warrior! Well, yeah, first he killed a bunch of us and another whole lot of Mauhķr's lads, and we had to shoot enough arrows into him to drop a MŻmak. But we got him!

late to the party yet again... [In reply to] Can't Post

but what great news to find when I finally arrive! Have a wonderful trip to NZ Gramma and please say a fond hello to Hobbiton for me - and to any TORnsibs you meet along the way. Good to see a pic of happy Midgie too, bless him (apologies if it's her - I can't remember!) It's Mother's Day here today; we did the family get-together yesterday so my daughter and family could have today to themselves. Today I've been making a start on restoring (to respectably shabby chic-ness) the old piano stool which predates me, on which I sat practising unenthusiastically for four years aged 5 to 9. The spring flowers are making up for lost time, after recent snow; the temperature made it to 13C today. Cheers, All!

Amazing!! [In reply to] Can't Post

So excited for you, gramma! I'll wave at you from below as you takeoff from LAX. Smile And I've been seeing those AirNZ sales (really wanted to take the plunge myself!).

I think the record for photos taken during a Hobbiton tour is 1500ish, if you're feeling up to the challenge. Tongue I only got 500.

Wishing you the greatest of adventures, and can't wait for the report back.

While living vicariously through you, I'll enjoy my own little bit of NZ as I get to finally see Lorde in concert on Wednesday. Bought my ticket almost a year ago, so very excited to see her.

Went rock climbing for the first time yesterday. Not *as* sore as I expected to be, but I can say I slept very well last night.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Would you post before and after photos [In reply to] Can't Post

of the piano stool? There's something about furniture restoration that I love seeing. Smile

You've already had a full weekend! [In reply to] Can't Post

I like to have gatherings on off-days and try to get my daughters to save the actual days to create their own memories. Doesn't usually work, though ;)

FLOWERS! and WARMTH! Awesome!!

I'm glad you still have your piano stool (and piano)? It doesn't take much to trigger memories, does it ;)

I'll DEFINITELY raise my mug in Hobbiton and share hellos :D

THANKS!

Have fun at the concert! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm glad the concert is still on. Waiting a year is incredible! I SO hope you have a great time!

Taking pictures is definitely in the plan ;) I have one camera I use to take pics of landmarks when I go walking so I can follow the pics backwards and find my way back. Then another camera for the touristy stuff ;)

My ANZ flight actually cost $100 LESS than the last trip! Surreal! BUT the flight from Detroit to LA was $150 more ;) Everything balances out.

Rock climbing!? WELL DONE! Nothing like a little exercise to help you sleep ;)

Bon voyage, gramma! [In reply to] Can't Post

So glad to hear you're going back to Middle-earth, and to Hobbiton, no less! It's truly a magical place, and hopefully greener than when B.G. and I were there a few years ago. Even though the surrounding fields were dry, Hobbiton was tended lovingly and kept green. Must be the dust from Sam's box.Wink

Enjoy! Enjoy! Enjoy! Oh, and take lots of piccies to share with us, please!

*HUGS!* HeartSmile

I'm SO tumbling with emotions! The weather forecast says scattered showers that day, but I've already had a talk with the appropriate Wizard about that ;)
