Here's Esty modeling some skwerl manoeuvres in case her birthday party gets out of hand:

Have a good day today, Esty!

There are worse things to celebrate than one's birth.

And as you know: age only makes one better!

I would be completely remiss if I didn’t wish Esty the happiest of birthdays as well. Esty came all the way across the Atlantic to see a Lord of the Rings exhibit with me and my family (OK, OK, she might have come to see some of her relatives as well), and I count meeting and getting to know her as one of the top experiences of my adult life. Of her I can truly say Elen síla lúmenn’ omentielvo.

I hope you have a most enjoyable day, Estelyn! I have nothing fancy to offer, I'm afraid. Just enjoy yourself as immensely as possible.

Cheers!

Awww! Thanks, everyone, for your good wishes! You make me feel so special!

Thanks, Brin - you were the first on this thread today!

Thanks Rikae - "high priestess" good wishes must be even better than plain ones!

Elempi, thank you for throwing me such a colourful party!

TM and Celuien both made use of the special Merisu smilie - thank you!

Ah, Bb, the memories - one day I will go back to my Fiona avatar. That picture is absolutely hilarious! And thanks for the Shrek cake!

Pio, that is a spectacular birthday quilt - wish I had one like it for real! Thanks for the lovely picture.

Noggie, age has definitely improved me, and it's not over yet! As they say, age is mind over matter - as long as you don't mind, it doesn't matter! Thanks for your good wishes.

Aww, Thena - the pleasure was all mine! Meeting you and your family was one of the highlights of my travels! I would gladly go out of my way to see ya'll again.

Folwren, like the Hobbits, I enjoy the simple pleasures of life - no need for fancy stuff all the time! Thank you for your good wishes.

And what now? It can't be. Cailín and SPM!

Happy birthday indeed! Though I haven't seen Caitlín around, I've read your WW and it was great! Well, I've not only read SPM's WW, but I've also been in it, and it was awesome indeed!

Anyway, anyway! Have a nice birthday!

Happy birthday to Cailín and Sauce and many congratulations! May you have good days and paljon onnea!

PS. How can one know Cailín has been away for too long a while? If S/he can't spell her name correctly! (Well, maybe ´ on the wrong i is not too bad, but still...)

Hey I didn't even expect you to know her... I was talking about myself (and at some point I realised it could be interpreted as a remark to you and I tried to phrase it the way it wouldn't but it seems I failed... ). Well, anyway, if your brain does not work that late, I recommend going to sleep earlier...

1420!

Many thanks to all who wished me a happy birthday, either here or by PM. It is especially kind of you to send greetings to one who is such a curmudgeonly old soul that he never gets round to wishing anyone else a happy birthday ...

Although, it being the big 4-0, perhaps it would have been better to let it slip by unmarked. Still, there it is, I am now officially middle-aged (hmm, does one get to live a middle-aged life in middle-earth ...?).

In so far as relevant to the Downs, my birthday presents included The Children of Hurin, a photo shot of Frodo and Sam from RotK signed by Sean Astin, and a wine goblet in the form of an Ent.

Tomorrow, I shall be holding my own Long Expected Party, although I don't intend on vanisihing (provided that is, that the aforementioned wine goblet does not get too many refills ...).

Many thanks again, one and all.

So belated congrats to two lovely ladies (or should I say "two lovely lasses"? ), Naria and Mith! Love to have you both around here, don't vanish and hopefully both of you had a gorgeous day. Paljon onnea!

See how loved you are Brinn? No one can wait to say happy birthday to you! So, happy birthday! Hope it's a good one and there are presents, cake and ice cream galore. 'Cause it's summer now and you have to have ice cream.

A belated thanks for the kind birthday wishes! I was quite pleasantly surprised, since I haven't said anything here for quite a while.

I will never really leave the Downs, though.

And Brinniel, happy birthday to you. Or, as we say in Dutch (which you must learn anyway), "gefeliciteerd met je verjaardag!"

A quick translation...

gefeliciteerd - ge like in german implying something in front of a verb (right? I've never studied German more than one basic course in the Uni more than ten years ago but a lot of verbs seem to have this ge-prefix in them for some reason) and feliciteerd meaning happy or joyous or whatever... felix navidad... so let us celebrate over and over again?

met - like German mit or English with?

je - your?

verjaardag - Jaar is year or Jahre and dag is like in Swedish/Danish/Norwegian meaning a day, and this ver is again some of this German prefix-stuff I never learned what was it all about...

Sorry Cailín, I do not mean that we should reduce the Dutch language to all these other languages but only tried to make it comprehensible with the hints of these other languages I know even something about...

Gah.

Hyvää syntymäpäivää Brinn! (gefeliciteerd met je verjaardag!)

in German the "ge-" prefix is something to do with forming the parst participle of strong verbs. But I failed O-Level German (though I studied it more later and due to a strange quirk of fate I am qualified to teach it in the 11-18 age range!!!!!! The DfEE obviously didn't think that having absolutely no qualification in the subject was a barrier .....

Anyway happy birthday to Naria And belatedly to Cailin. Lommie, these days only octogenarians address me as "Lass"

Thanks to Lhuna, Rune, Rikae, Kath, Cailín, and Nogrod for the birthday wishes. I promise I had a lovely day.

Well, if I don't get it as a gift, I'm planning to use birthday money to buy a learn Dutch software program, so soon enough I will know some Dutch...or at least, more than I do now (which is none ).
