I don't own anything. It belongs to Professor Tolkien and I'm just filling in the cracks.

Laundry

To hobbits this daily ritual was fascinating. Boots they knew but they had never seen socks. Aragorn said they prevented blisters. Gimli only sniffed disdainfully at laundry and Legolas wore no socks. Gandalf, as always, was a mystery.

Sam looked up from his chewing to watch Boromir collecting his spare pair from the rock on which they had been drying. A little distance away Aragorn was darning the toes of his only pair and Sam smiled to think what his sister, Daisy, would say about those “great cobblin’ stitches”.

He was learning all kinds of new things on this journey.
