I soon found my chance to begin to pay back the dwarves of Thorin’s Hall for their kindnesses and volunteered for Patch Duty. The walls holding back the underground river spring leaks from time to time and need to be repaired. It is tiring work, however, and it is difficult to not lay down every now and then to catch a few winks! Our foreman decided it was time for him to come over and tell us break time was over in the traditional dwarven way.
