    since noone has posted here in over two weeks, I take it as Aule having forfeited his turn. SO I'll ask one instead to get this thread going .

    Who in the Shire besides Bilbo and Frodo had seen the Red Book ?

    *laughs manically as he hijacks the LoTR Quiz thread with his pedantic and excruciatingly difficult questions*

    O.K-Who is the faithful servant of Frodo? ;) (Joke!)

    Anyway, the REAL question is:

    What was the Westron name for the grand-son of the Hobbit who received a gift of wine from Bilbo?

    Read my question again. I asked for the Westron name. 'Meriadoc' is a translation.

    Umm.......that's a quote, Starflower! :)

    Wrong section! I know you're a very active participant in both the "LOTR Trivia" and "Quotable Quotes" threads, but you seem to have gotten them a bit mixed up!

    Anyway, that quote is Aragorn speaking to Gandalf (I think) in the Houses of Healing (in case you wanted to know).
