What a guy. [In reply to] Can't Post

Was it Rayner Unwin who observed that, thanks to Christopher's lifework, J. R. R. Tolkien lived and published over not one but two literary lifetimes?

Happy birthday, Mr. Tolkien. Enjoy yourself and take the day off. Pet the boars.

He's given us so much [In reply to] Can't Post

In honouring his Father, he completed and shared so many of the unfinished works. I can't imagine our world without them... or him. Thank you, dear Sir. Many Happy Returns of the Day!


Thank you for this geordie :)

Happy birthday to a great man [In reply to] Can't Post

who has shared so much of his father's creation with the world.

"He's a marvel," as Sam said of Bilbo on the occasion of another momentous birthday.

Do we find happiness so often that we should turn it off the box when it happens to sit there?

A happy birthday, dear sir! [In reply to] Can't Post

There is no gift that any of us can give to you, that even comes close to the marvelous gifts you have given us all.

Thank you! Heart
