I have called you together for a Purpose.
Indeed, for Three Purposes.
First of all, to tell you that I am immensely fond of you all, and that eleventy-one posts is too short a time to live among such excellent and admirable hobbits, elves, dwarves, men, orcs, trolls etc.
I don’t know half of you half as well I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.
Secondly, to celebrate my one hundred and eleventh post. This may not seem a lot to you, but considering my first ever and subsequent posts was on PT, this is quite a record for me.
Thirdly and finally, I wish to make an ANNOUNCEMENT.
I regret to announce that – though, as I said, eleventy-one posts is far too short a time to spend among you – this is the END. I am going. I am leaving NOW. GOOD-BYE.
