“Give us a chance; let it give us a chance, my preciouss–ss–ss.”

“Well,” said Bilbo, after giving him a long chance, “what about your guess?”

But suddenly Gollum remembered thieving from nests long ago, and sitting under the river bank teaching his grandmother, teaching his grandmother to suck–“Eggses!” he hissed. “Eggses it is!”

  1. Hi Earl,
    Yes, so far some are pale blue and some pale green. Interesting look. The taste is amazingly different from store bought eggs, and I’m afraid I might be unable to ever go back to eating store bought. Just like the difference between Hawaiian apple bananas and regular cavendish bananas. Once you’ve seen Paris…

  2. Yum. Looks like it’s time for omeletses! 🙂 Congratulations on your haul. Amazingly different, huh? I would imagine much more full flavor than regular eggs. I’ve experience this difference with garden vegetables vs. store bought.
