Yes, I was bound to blog about this sooner or later here: The Shire. We all know The Shire around here, correct? The Hobbit-themed real estate development? Right. It’s hitting the news outside of the area, finally.
I first blogged about it here over a year ago. I called it "some kind of crazy." I mean really, who builds Hobbit holes? (Okay, utility sheds, but still.) If I were to live there, I would fully wear period clothing and a long sword strapped to my belt. Hey, "some kind of crazy" requires crazy living.
Okay, I think that’s it. Did I miss anybody? I imagine there will more links; perhaps we need a ShireWatch or something.
I just find this whole thing rather weird. I mean, right here among resort destination ranches with celebrity-designed golf courses and multimillion dollar homes, we have… a medieval village inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien?
Sad to say, I haven’t visited it yet. Would anyone who has like to post a report?
