Happy Birthday, Bilbo and Frodo! Hobbit Oddities

"Stick to the forest track, keep your peckers up, hope for the best, and with a tremendous slice of luck you will come out one day and see the Long Marshes lying below you--and beyond them faint and far the top of the Lonely Mountain in the East. There is a path too across the Marshes..." --Bladorthin (Gandalf) bidding farewell to Bilbo and the dwarves on the verge of Mirkwood, form the original draft of The Hobbit, in The History of The Hobbit Part One: Mr Baggins, edited by John D. Rateliff. (Peckers in this instance meaning noses; he is essentially saying 'Chin up.')
