Today 114 years ago J.R.R. Tolkien was born in Bloemfontijn, South-Afrika.
A good moment to bring a toast: the Professor!!

Actually, it's "Bloemfontein" (fontein=fountain in Dutch and Afrikaans).

But indeed, a happy belated birthday to JRRT.

For my part, I will say a prayer that good Professor Tolkien will look after all of us in PT as we look after his works.

Amen to that.

And may his pipe be ever filled with Old Toby, his tankard with Barliman's Ale (or Gimli's Finest), and may he be near a couple of hobbits with whom he might pass the time of day.

amen.

What a dear dear person, I imagine the earth shivered with excitement the moment he came forth as a newborn child. A blank page just waiting to be filled with tiny moments here and there that put together made dear Tolkien the great man he was to become.

I absolutely love your avy Halbard, beautiful.
I find each time I open one of his works I begin to celebrate him in the depths of my mind and heart.
