John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born in Bloemfontein, South Africa,on 3 January 1892. That means today is his eleventy first birthday!
Pretty special day for Hobbits and other 'rings' followers, I reckon.

He lived in Brum, just down the road from me (about 10 miles). Took me a week to read LOTR. When The Hobbit came ouit, fellow-prof C S Lewis said "Just what we need--another ******* elf book!" And where is he now?

Well ,at One Hundred and Eleven ,I'm sure he's right proud to whom his story of the ring of power has finally "found" its way to and been picked up by for that New Z'lander has quite triumphantly carried Tolkien's opus into the 21st century as a true film masterpiece.

Not bad that.

Message from my daughter Amy: Thank you for letting me know his birthday! I never knew it, so Happy eleventy-first birthday, Master Tolkien! Now, don't go and disappear on us, because we'd all be quite upset if you left for Rivendell without us.
Back to Hollowfox: Thanks from me as well. Eleventy-one, fancy that!

I know what you mean, Carol. Reality is just a crutch for those who cannot handle fantasy.

"That means today is his eleventy first birthday!"

Or rather it WOULD be if he wasn't dead as a stone...

So, Clinton, you don't observe Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, or Martine Luther King's birthdays?

Stones are not dead, Clint old man... Just differently alive - Like JRRT himself!

BTW does anyone know why some Hobbits thought that Bilbos' mention of his and Frodos' combined ages being one gross was rather tasteless?

Was it the term or the age?

Just curious

Birthdays... pfft... only the only people for whom birthdays should be made a fuss over are the under 12s... After that, it's just a reminder of mortality...

"you don't observe Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, or Martine Luther King's birthdays?"

Nope... Canadians don't care about such things...

Today I enjoyed sampling Naemanson's commemorative seed cake, a tasteful way of celebrating a full and wonderful life.

Cheerily,

Happy belated Eleventy First Birthday JRRT.    Have been reading the books now for over 20 years and still can't get enough of them.

With regard to the mention of one gross Dave I think it was simply because the term itself was vulgar and the guests felt they'd only been invited to make up that number!   Oh the horror of having to go to a hobbit's birthday party - all that food, drink and presents!!!.
