I notice...

...that today would have been Tolkien's 124th birthday. Apart from enjoying the films and the books, I've never been particularly part of Tolkien fandom (to the extent that I regularly spell his name wrong...), so...I'd love to think that 13 years ago, the fans made a particularly big deal of what would have been his eleventy-first birthday. And, for that matter, that we can expect a big celebration in 20 years time when he would have been one gross...

Celebrate!

We certainly all raise and glass and toast him on his birthday each year - there was probably a bigger party that year.

Yes, I remember it being a big deal, too.
