[bksvol-discuss] Re: Sam's cooking gear

Sorry I stepped on toes.  The goblins must have gotten into my mail and I 
missed that one.  I did get references but I don't remember getting one with 
the exact quotation and the word "fissures". I would have remembered as I have 
an image in my mind of the cavity but not one from the movie as I have 
deliberately tried to forget the movies and gave away my copies. I have seen 
illustrations of the quartet of books over the years in the calendars as well 
as elsewhere and it may have been one of those which I remember but it gave no 
view of the bottom.  Again, sorry I missed your email.

  Maybe you should read your mail more carefully.  If you had, you would have 
noticed that I quoted Sam's references to pans from The Two Towers last week.  
I am a little miffed that you would imply that I hadn't supplied facts to back 
up my assertion that he used pans.  I even said that I had looked it up.  It is 
true that I didn't mention that the quotes were from The Two Towers, but I 
would have thought that you would have known that because the incident the 
quotes came from was mentioned in the discussion.  Perhaps you don't know the 
books very well.

  Finally some facts, indeed!

      Dear Tolkien Booksharians,

      Sam would be touched that his beloved pans garnered so much attention.  
This one's for you, Sam.

      "'And he (Stinker) isn't going to mess with my pans!' With that he 
carried all the gear away to one of the many gaping fissures that scored the 
land and threw them in. The clatter of his precious pans as they fell down in 
to the dark was like a death-knell to his heart."

      BTW
      Peter Jackson expressed remorse that he didn't make more of this 
emotional moment in his ROTK film 

      Always with love,

      Lissi

frying pan."

        I still must rely on memory as the books are not readily available (I 
can check later if anyone wants me to) but I do believe that nowhere else in 
the trilogy are the pans specified except as "cooking gear"  which, as has been 
said, was left in the depression (aptly named I think) as it was not said to be 
a hole or bottomless but it was never detail until the " stewed coneys" and, I 
think, an earlier reference to the lack of salt which Sam forgot. 

        Amy

            You are forgiven, but it is a grave offense to get something like 
that wrong; so please watch it. <grin>

            Besides, maybe you are the one who should forgive me.  After having 
looked up the matter for someone else, and having said so, I may have been a 
bit terse.

              Evan,

              Meant to indicate that the memory was foggy.  On further thought, 
believe sam did say something about Golum getting into hot watter if he damaged 
one of "my pans."  

              Forgive.

                He used pans to stew the rabits, as I have already shown.

                  Sam used a small pot to stew his rabbits, but when he dumped 
his gear in Mordor, there were a couple of pans.  One of them may have been a 
frying pan, but right now, can't remember.
