Shire Talk : An Apology
An apology passed on from Journalist-in-the-field by Elrond T. HalfElven, Editor-in-chief EriadorEnquirer:
Dear Citizens, Denzins and Gentle Readers of all Races,
To those subscribers who have not received an issue in the past several
months, I do formally beg your forgiveness. My stay in Valinor has been
extended, due to circumstances beyond my control. All I can say is,
never play cards with Mandos and Aulë when the stakes are
unlimited. And if there are any folks out there who owe me any mallorn
leaves or gold coins, do please forward them to BankOfValar, forward to
pay of my gambling debts.
Until such a time as I am released from Mandos, I am taking careful
notes of the interviews I am scoring in here... let me tell you, a few
millenia in the mansions has not cooled Fëanor’s fire any! He is
still ranting about his bloody jewels!
Anyway, no time for that now! Until we meet again, good health and
fortune to you all, and if anyone can bake a cake and send it along, a
mithril file would come in very handy right now!
