I hope that all the 37 people who viewed this thread, even though they mostly didn't post here, did nevertheless enter themselves on the congrats list! :D

I'll be toasting him alright, but I'll probably not sign the form. :)

I just like reading the list and finding entries from people from all over the world who are grateful to Tolkien, too, or want to honour him or remember him - I mean, in a way I find that on a Tolkien messageboard, too, but the birthday toast is even more universal, I think - and I like being a part of that, that's why I've always signed it in the past three or four years. :)

I'm just always a bit astonished that I hardly ever see a name that I know from any messageboard on that list - hence the advertisement. :P :D

Glad you'll be drinking a toast, though! :)

Been there, done that.

I saw TrueHeartedEasterling. No other name I recognized, though.

And truehobbit, I hope! :D

I don't know TrueHeartedEasterling at all. I know some of the folks from the German Tolkien Society who usually sign. :)
I've got to go back and see if I find more names I know after having had the thread up for a bit now! :D

I found Hobby, OTB (presumably our Old Tom), Ivriniel from TORC (by her real name), and a few of my CoE buddies.

I didn't toast myself, but had a good piece of cake instead which I thought would well pass for a birthday cake. :D

To the Professor, with many thanks. :cheers:


I'm so glad you bumped this -- I had completely forgotten. :oops:

To Tolkien! :cheers:

How many others have written a work that can sustain being discussed so intensely for so long by so many people from so many different places; that can be loved by scholars and by teenagers; in which new things can always be found, so the teenagers can grow old loving it; that has brought such beauty into colorless or desperate lives, and shored so many people up against despair? :love:

I'll gladly raise a glass in his honor.

To J.R.R. Tolkien, with gratitude and appreciation that deepen by the year! :cheers:
