I finally saw Lord of the Rings today with Sweetie. I enjoyed the whole trilogy but especially enjoyed sharing his pleasure. The sense of purpose conveyed in LOTR was utterly convincing and reminded me of this Code of Honor. And yes, Sam IS the Man.
I've never read the books but have heard hubby reading them to Sweetie over and over and over through the years. The Tolkien book I enjoyed is
The Father Christmas Letters. I'm just a sucker for mischevous North Polar Bears.
