Tuesday, 25 September 2941 T. A.: Thag you very buch

The Master of Lake-town,
by Horus Engels, 1957
On this day, in 2941 T. A., Bilbo Baggins had only slightly improved from the severe cold he had caught at the huts of the raft-Elves, and was still confined to a rest indoors, delaying the plans of the Dwarves to head for the Lonely Mountain while they were invited to many a banquet by Lake-men who hoped in one way or another to benefit from the unexpected arrival of the King under the Mountain (aka. Thorin Oakenshild). For several more days, Bilbo's speech would be limited to "Thag you very buch".
