We are near the mountains and I think that we will be in them by nightfall. Guess what I decided to do? I am starting to make a map of my journey with all the ins and outs! I hope it works…I am having to use make shift ink (also known as wine) for it. Did you know it is hard to type and walk…so I found a rather (if I do say so myself) ingenious way to be able to do both. First: I sit on Legolas’s shoulders. Two: I get out my laptop. Three: I set it on his head and away I go! 🙂 I now have a headtop! Anyway, we encountered a weird man today…he walked with a limp and he spoke with a lisp. He walked up to Pip and said…”My dear little hobbit friend (he sounded like a really bad door- to- door salesman) you look like you are tired and hungry!” Pip: Actually we just had second breakfast so I am good for about hour, thanks!” Weird Creepy Man: Oh, but I have a nice apple for you! (this set Merry in stitches for some reason) Pip: I have had enough apples in my lifetime, thank you.” Weird creepy man: Oh well *trots off*
Then we all stare blankly at him as he starts off and starts singing a song off-key. I thought that he was the weirdest man would ever have met, but Legolas says I will probably meet weirder people someday. Merry said I already knew Pip, and that is when they got into a fight ^_^ Oh well, the day is half gone so I will probably be posting later. Do you think I should call this trip A Day In Gondor or just stick with this one?
Farwell my dear elf/human/dwarf/hobbit friends,
