A mithril coat

Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate;
And though I oft have passed them by,
A day will come at last when I
Shall take the hidden paths that run
West of the Moon, East of the Sun.

A! Elbereth Gilthoniel!
Silivaren penna miriel
O menel anglar elenath,
Gilthoniel, A! Elbereth!
We still remember, we who dwell
In this far land beneath the trees
The starlight on the Western Seas.

Dear friends,

I’ve been doing a lot of tract distribution in Aji lately, and let me tell you: there are some scary dogs in that town. And sooner or later, one of them is going to get me, no matter how careful I am. So, I’ve looked around a bit and decided that my best bet is with a long-sleeved mithril coat. I did a little shopping on ebay and found the worth to be greater than that of the entire Shire, which comes out to about US$8 billion, or 8 X 10^23 yen. I can’t do this without you! Please prayerfully consider giving a one-time or monthly gift towards my purchase.
In addition, I’ve decided that being invisible would help quite a bit (especially when I get those long, “What’s a foreigner doing here?” stares). So, I’m going to need a ring of power. Since the One was destroyed at the end of the third age and the Three (Narya, Vilya, and Nenya) departed into the Far West shortly thereafter, I’m stuck with one of the remaining Dwarven rings or with one of the Nine. I couldn’t find any trace of them online, so I’d greatly appreciate it if you’d email me any leads you may find.

White gulls call,
Joey
