"When Mr. Bilbo Baggins of Bag End announced that he would shortly be celebrating his eleventy-first birthday with a party of special magnificence, there was much talk and excitement in Hobbiton."
Though not as much excitement as I am feeling right now, I daresay. ;)
Yes. I just opened The Fellowship of the Ring for the first time in a year or two. Or more.
How I ever let myself go this long without visiting my dear friends I'll never know.
Inside, I am pretty much laughing with delight.
