Yes, I do.

Then it's Causeway or Northway.
No, it isn't!

Urwen 05-09-2019 10:54 AM

And this?

BRANDY HALL: Sing a song of Tolkien: strong’s the spirit here!
CRICKHOLLOW: Pain in neck and empty? Nomenclature is queer.
BYWATER: By this may you live, since it’s not by bread alone –
OATBARTON: And here’s a place where (fancifully) hob-nobs could be grown.
???T???: Here’s the way that you must serve a tennis ball,
HOBBITON: Here dwelt one whose stories, (many thought), were tall.
THISTLEBROOK: Here have fun and paddle, but do not prick your toes -
GREAT SMIALS: And here big grins abound, they say, and none are lachrymose!

A modest verse in rhyming couplets, to be sung to the tune of 'Sing a Song of Sixpence.'

I'm no sportswoman, but a bag shot is not one I've ever heard of!

No.

Waymeet?

William Cloud Hicklin 05-09-2019 11:06 AM

Aha! WAYMEET - I dimly recall tennis coaches hopelessly encouraging me to "meet" the ball (to no avail)

Pervinca Took 05-09-2019 11:14 AM

Not Waymeet.

Didn't mean to mislead you. It isn't a *proper* tennis term I'm looking for.

Urwen 05-09-2019 11:48 AM

There isn't any place which contains 'way' remaining, though......

Pervinca Took 05-09-2019 11:52 AM

Not 'way,' no. But there are ways of indicating a way. ;)

William Cloud Hicklin 05-09-2019 11:56 AM

OK, here's a real stretch: WINDWHISTLE? That's at least the sound of it....

Unless you're trying to make the ball a FAR THING

Pervinca Took 05-09-2019 12:00 PM

No.

The phrase could also apply to a cricket, rounders/baseball, snooker, billiards or pool ball.

Also a squash or golf ball?

It's a kind of element that we use all the time on this thread.

Urwen 05-09-2019 02:09 PM

'FOR'? As in, 'for him', 'for her' etc.

Urwen 05-09-2019 02:09 PM

Or maybe 'returning' or something similar?

Urwen 05-09-2019 02:11 PM

Hint please?

William Cloud Hicklin 05-09-2019 02:14 PM

Okay, all I got is LONGBOTTOM

Pervinca Took 05-09-2019 02:23 PM

If you ask the way, you ask the ...

Urwen 05-09-2019 02:24 PM

Direction?

Urwen 05-09-2019 02:24 PM

East Road?

Pervinca Took 05-09-2019 02:32 PM

Try an abbreviation for a direction.

William Cloud Hicklin 05-09-2019 02:36 PM

Dwaling????????? When you "wale" on something you hit it hard, so D + WALING, I guess

Pervinca Took 05-09-2019 02:44 PM

D isn't a direction!

Look at a map of the Shire. You can find one online.

Urwen 05-09-2019 02:48 PM

Okay, compass says 'M' 'N', 'T' and 'P', but I don't see how that helps......

Pervinca Took 05-09-2019 02:49 PM

M T P?

Never heard of those as compass points.

Urwen 05-09-2019 02:54 PM

Oh. I see. Cheeky......

Final answer: Whitwell (W+HIT+WELL)

Pervinca Took 05-09-2019 03:01 PM

Yes!!!!!!!!!!

William, the floor is yours.

William Cloud Hicklin 05-09-2019 04:20 PM

All right, I have a few things to do so it will be a bit before I get the next one up

William Cloud Hicklin 05-09-2019 08:53 PM

Okay, ladies and gentlemen, let's go!

1. Arab handmaid ate Jewish pastry- the upset produced a fiend
2. Get out? Nein! He's backwards!
3. Remember England; he was in there.
4. Bluetooth gets garbled after tea, so you'll have to unscramble him
5. He's like, "Crazy beach, crazy!"
6. Glam rocker without even thinking- he was the first and might be the last
7. Key crew! Activity will reveal him
8. He's a dunce on one side

Galadriel55 05-09-2019 09:11 PM

3. Beren

Galadriel55 05-09-2019 09:13 PM

5. Sounds like Fingolfin or Finarfin, by the word pattern. Can't reason which though.

Urwen 05-10-2019 02:01 AM

2. Tuor?

Urwen 05-10-2019 02:20 AM

6. Maglor (GLAM+RO)

5. Maedhros (MAD+SHORE)

Urwen 05-10-2019 03:01 AM

8. Feanor (OAF)
