I must thank Primula for her help. I didn't even notice when she slipped out of the room after she helped me get Iorhael in. But I believe Melba is being good company for her, though Melbie has been a little odd of late . . . quieter than usual, as it seems to me, anyway. Maybe it's because she is sharing more of her thoughts with Primula. I know Smeagol has been seen about the Green Dragon of late--I wonder what he's up to. And Tiger and Uncle Sennie are off sailing. Sounds awfully romantic to me.
Anyway, last I saw Gramma Addy, I promised I would come back soon with Iorhael for a visit. I suppose this may be a good time for it and I do believe the distraction might do a'maelamin some good. I heard Grandmum Mir is visiting at Great Smials as well. And perhaps Iorhael and I will get to see how our in-laws get along if Primula decides to join us. So, as soon as a'maelamin is ready, we will see who else is joining us for the ride to Tuckborough.
