As you folks are too busy for a proper mathom Can't Post

Let me just say that last Friday was my fifth TORniversary. Like Bilbo, I found myself doing and saying (well, writing) things that I've never expected, lost hardly anything at all (except for loads of time), but gained a wonderful experience, thanks to all you folk - and many others, who unfortunately are less active recently.

So just a big thank you, and enjoy the ride!

"As all things come to an end, even this story..."

Here we read of Bilbo, who is “quiet and drowsy”, that “every now and again he would open one eye” and listen to Gandalf’s tale. Is Tolkien deliberately echoing this passage in LOTR when he writes, “At that Bilbo opened an eye, almost as if he had heard … ‘You see, I am getting so sleepy’, he said.”?

Many happy returns of your TORniversary, sador! [In reply to] Can't Post

Only five years? It seems like you've been one of the "old guard" for a lot longer than that! Wink

And as one who has been enjoying your posts, especially in the RR, I thank YOU for making the decision to spend a considerable amount of your time here - I do hope the family understands! Evil

One by one they faded, and fell into shadow...

One book to rule them all
One book to find them
One book to bring them all
And in TORn bind them
In the land of TORnadoes...where the brilliant play

They went in, and Sam shut the door.
But even as he did so, he heard suddenly,
deep and unstilled,
the sigh and murmur of the Sea upon the shores of Middle-earth.

Thank you. [In reply to] Can't Post

Coming from you - those words ring both gracious and true.

I remember a couple of years ago, when I found I was spending to much time on the Net, and had to make some hard choices as to what to drop. I decided to stick to TORn - more than anything else, because of the wonderful company. I'm glad I did.

So the real thank you should go to all the members who made, and make TORn such a place - truly the Last Homely House online!

I expect he will soon drag me to the cinema for The Hobbit. The only question is whether to take his eldest sister with us as well.
