Yes, They DID come!! The Elf’s name was Legolas and the Dwarf was Gimli! It certainly was a thrill having them, Gimli and Pippin had a drinking contest and Gimli won, Pippin, passed out. It was a rather short drinking contest due to the one pint Pippin drank. The Elf was really tall and he kept saying corny lines, but, other than that, he was a really nice elf (he is the only elf I ever met though). He had the neatest knifes I ever saw! And Gimli’s axe was really neat too! They told us stories of old times when the Elves were in Middle Earth and they told us of a fight with a Balrog and Gandalf killed him! Good old Gandalf, I sure miss seeing his fire works. *sigh* Anyway, Gimli loved our food but, I am not so sure they Legolas enjoyed the Pickled Mushrooms. They also brought wierd bread called Lembas, it was really nice bread I ate two of them…I am now stuffed! Oh…it was such a nice day, and Gimli and Legolas are staying for another day then heading back to Gondor. I must say that I really like Elves and Dwarfs, no matter how uncouth dwarfs are. I do not know what tomorrow holds but I am sure it will be fun!
