How most disappointing! I thought that I had seen the last of the worms, but this part of Eregion is infested with them. They plagued me throughout the trollshaws, and now here too! Nevermind, I am now on the outskirts of Hollin, and should start to see the approach to the Redhorn Pass soon.
I wonder what I would have been like if I had found the one ring! Would I have been strong enough to have carried it to Mordor? I think I would have found it too hard to resist to put it on. Actually, the more I think about it, there are times when I have been trying to escape the watching eyes of my wife that it would have been very handy to slide on the ring and disappear! Hmmm, poor Pashanor, she means well, but if she had her way she would have me spending all my days farming and cooking. I’m sure she only started working at the Ivy Bush so that she could keep a better eye on me!
Oh how I would like to be in the Ivy Bush right now! For all Eregion’s beautiful elvish scenery, it does miss a good inn!
