I am grateful for the chance to be here.
for the prompt: rowing at tolkien_weekly
“Merry – why did we pack all those food hampers if we aren’t going to take them aboard?”
Merry pointed to Sam, laying out a picnic on the bank. “It gives Sam something to do,” he yawned.
“Is the boat supposed to make that thumping sort of sound?”
“It’s not the boat – more that we’re still tied to the dock.”
“Is that why we never seem to use the oars?”
“My dear cousins! The rowing is not the part of a day on the river that matters. We have sunshine and birdsong and provender, and messing about in boats.”
This one carries my apologies to Jerome K. Jerome and a nod to Kenneth Grahame
