Bilbo left today, sadly. He threw this extravagant party, just to rudely tell us "I regret to announce that-though, as I said, eleventy one years is far too short a time to spend among you - this is the END I am going. I am leaving NOW. GOOD-BYE!", quoted directly from the horses mouth. The last “Goodbye” was said so forcefully, many of us felt lifted from our chairs. It was a sad moment for me, as I had always thought well of him. I wish he hadn’t of left. Oh well, but everyone else is ransacking his house now, most likely. Searching for the gold, probably.
