Where to start? Can't Post

Because of family circumstances, I may start lurking again. But I've missed thousands of messages since the great Texas blizzard and power failure of Feb 2021.
Suggestions? Start here and go forward? Memorable discussions not to be missed?

Hello from another Texan survivor [In reply to] Can't Post

Well, there’s been a number of excellent conversations, but what stands out to me is NoWizardMe’s breakdown of the Shire further down the page.

Just before the great Texas blizzard, I began my LOTR 365 project, where I divided the book up into 365 10 minute passages, inserted at least one classic illustration for very daily reading, and then began my day with a reading. I am happy to say that Legolas and Gimli were as of this morning recounting Aragorn’s passage through South Gondor. I expect to be back with Sam and Rosie at Bag End by mid-December.

There’s undoubtedly been much more interesting conversation happening around here than tiny LOTR daily readings, though!

That's very kind of you! [In reply to] Can't Post

Part 1 was much improved by 'peer review' here, so I recommend people include the comments if they want to read it. Smile
