Lazy Summer days are great!  - Gazette Issue 6 & 7 - 1425 S.R.

You have had to wait for a long  time to get a new Editorial and I apologise for that. But I've been enjoying the Lazy days of Summer to the full! I even extended my stay out of bounds because it was so lovely there! Drinking fine ale by the waterfront, delicious pies being served by a couple of nice and friendly Hobbit lasses... what more does one need?!

But now that I have returned, the Shire looks just as friendly as was my Holidays destination. And, I must admit it, I am glad to be back home.
