And I’m back! Well, for certain definitions of “back.” For me, “back” means “sitting in corporate housing with my new husband and three cats while frantically searching for long-term housing that will take three cats.” But!

One look through the round window of his sitting-room confirmed it: today would be a lovely sort of day. Toradoc Broadbrook set his father’s cap on his head just so. It was a splendid thing with gold embroidery and not one, but two feathers, like those worn by the finest sort of Hobbits.

“Father!” Little Bobbin ran up and held his chubby arms up to his da. “Ma wants flowers on the tea-table!” Toradoc swooped his son up onto his shoulders, calling, “Duck!” as they passed through the freshly-painted door and out into a brisk, sweet-smelling sunrise. Bobbin giggled and held tight.
“Well, my boy?” Toradoc called up to his first-born son. “Flowers are waiting! Point the way!”
