OT: Tolkien's 111 birthday celebration
- I'm sure Tolkien clubs around the world had their own celebration's of
the Professor's eleventy-first birthday. We, the Mellyn Ennor (North
Louisiana's Tolkien Society), held a huge feast in a park. After we had
all eaten and socialised, we gathered by the river. One of the group's
members had built a beautiful miniature swan-prowed boat. A photo of
Tolkien was placed in the boat and we sent it down the river as we sang
'Namárië' and 'Bilbo's Last Song (at the Grey Havens') by
candlelight. A touching ceremony for our favourite author.
Cuio mae, Danny.
