I wonder if it was fore-ordained Sqwach would leave us and never be seen in Forumshire ever after? Shocked

I was wondering myself? Is she now too mature for the likes of us?

Tolkien would be 122 years old today if he were still alive.  But he'd also be the second oldest person ever if that were the case. :prof:

Happy Birthday Professor!!!!!!!! I'm glad you're not around to see what has become of your stories, and at the same time, I wish you were  Crying or Very sad

I wish the Dear Ole Prof was around to have filled in some holes in the background to LotR and the Silmarillion, but not stayed long enough to see the movies.

Well, I'm just too late acording to my timezone. But let's pretend I'm in America for a moment.  Laughing 

So happy birthday Tolkien.  Nod

Oops, 3 days late!

This thread makes me want to have a fried egg over toast. I think I'm craving it because our lazy chickens have stopped laying for the season.

Three years late as well it seems Laughing

Ooh you have your own chickens? Bet those eggs taste better than the cheap shot bought ones we get...

Better than the cheap-o brands, certainly. Chickens are pretty great to keep if you can I think. A steady source of eggy protein and then, every once in a while, chicken dinner!
