"the exercise of determining what was the "real" version of events" [In reply to] Can't Post

A lot of us get involved in that on this site, whether or not we see it as the Hunt for Cannon*. We have fun with lots of questions which are then examined by reference to the texts and by deduction or inference from them.

"The Hunt for Cannon"? I believe that Aragorn found it in the forest after much searching & brought it home in a sack… Wink

Disclaimers: The words of noWizardme may stand on their heads! I'm often wrong about things, and its fun to be taught more....

"nowimė I am in the West, Furincurunir to the Dwarves (or at least, to their best friend) and by other names in other lands. Mostly they just say 'Oh no it's him - look busy!' "
Or "Hold off! unhand me, grey-beard loon!"
