Although it’s not mentioned in Lord of the Rings or any of Tolkien’s related works, hobbit at some point in time made it out of Middle-Earth and into other parts of the world.  I’ve spotted their distinctive doors in two places recently.  The first was in France, the home of these mountain hobbits who evidently value access to a good road.

This second home belongs to a species of hobbit much smaller than those mentioned above or in Middle-earth.  The door was firmly closed as we walked by, but the residence is in a lovely older neighborhood in Philadelpia, so they’re apparently more social than their French relatives and possibly a bit more house-proud as well.

The Dr. Seuss yeti, perhaps, and certainly not Bigfoot or, as Odo Proudfoot said in “Lord of the Rings” (sort of), “Big FEET.”
