A lot has happened lately in our Shire under the golden leaves of Laurelin … truly a lot has happened ta all the folks of Middle Earth.
Wasnt so long ago that we gathered t’gether ia see & laugh at the antics of the fabulous “Ziehenden Musikanten / Wandering Musicians” from far-off Belly Gear as they told us all about….”The Jailbreak of Chuck Spearwood” …when two of his faithful crew came to rescue the captain before the folks of Bree could hang him. I think Captain Chuck was a bit sorry that they used a barrel of his rum ta get him out ~giggles~
Thanks ta the author of this adventure …the Lady Pandorradis of Belly Gear…
And thanks fer the great help of the translator, my dear friend Kirgon Steelhammer…
And thanks bunches ta the kind Miss Tibba fer the the costumes …
A special and most sincere thank ya ta all of the actors and the “background band” of the Wanderin Minstrels fer given us all an excitin …and funny …adventure!
Here why not have another laugh yerself …..
like I said afore …a lot has happened ….
sum folks have disappeared from our world sadly ….
one of whom brought many wondrous songs ta entertain us folks over the years ….and was a great friend & source of encouragement & affection ta many of us fer many long years.
I started as a fan of Geoffroi’s …became a friend of Pipes’s …and had the great honour of becomin part of the Andune extended family.
but thanks ta the drawings of dear Miss Leddy ..ya folks can look back and hear their past performances at the OAKS like when they came in disguise as the Blue Squirrels …~scratches head~ or sumthin like that… back on the 10th of November of 2018 when they presented possibly the most romantic tale known in Middle Earth …”Beren and Lúthien”
or this past November of 2019 …
when Geoffri and dear Holly spent months preparin for a truly spectucular evening for all lucky enough to come that day when the Andune Ensemble presented “The Hobbit”
so many lovely memories saved fer us by dear Holly ….thanks my dear sweet friend.
