Gossip at the Ivy Bush

Bosco Sandheaver listened to the talk of old "Mad Baggins". He'd heard the tales. Who in the Shire hadn't heard of the hobbit who'd run off into the Wild with the Old Took's wizard and a troupe of Dwarves, then come back from the dead? But these folks knew the old fellow!

Now this party. Bosco wondered could he stretch Mr. Brownlock's business in Hobbiton enough to attend? Just a few more days, then when he got home, they'd buy him many a pint to tell of it. Who knew; mayhap gold or jools might just be laying about thereā€¦
