Seems like old times! Welcome back! [In reply to] Can't Post

That chair has been looking awfully empty, of late. Glad you were able to find us in our spiffy new digs!

I don't have a lot to add to what everyone else has said about this drawing, except that unless I've missed it no one has compared Maddo to this drawing of Sauron's head and hand. As you say, Tolkien seems to have some fairly firmly fixed images in his head, and is capable of recycling them brilliantly as needed.

I think he must have been a wonderful daddy, always full of stories and drawings to entertain, comfort, or console as needed.
