Thumbs up **ANNOUNCEMENT - BARROW-DOWNS BIRTHDAY MAY 1st!**

The Barrow-Downs forum will be six years old on May 1, 2006. The Barrow-Wight has reportedly been seen hovering in and around his barrow, but no party invitations have been forthcoming. Since quite a few members are away in far parts, such as hunting werewolves in Tol-in-Gaurhoth, chasing anakronisms in Mordor, or improbably racing mountains, he may have thought that no one would come. Let's surprise him with lots of birthday cards! What kind of card will you send? Will it have a picture, some funny lines written on it, or perhaps even include a poem for the occasion? Check out the Barrow-Downs section in the morning to show and tell what your congratulations look like! A new thread will be placed there for that very purpose.

Duly great birthday BD!

I've just been here from January, and I already feel like I'm within a community! Just so astonishing site this is!

And without knowing the real history behind this, great thanks to the Barrow-Wight! This is just fabuloysly kept site - you don't pop onto these in the net so often.

Warm thanks to everyone here, and I hope we will have a lots of shared fun to come! This is just so...

Pipe Theres always a first time...

In all my three years of being here not once have I wished the Barrow-Downs on its birthday though it has never failed to wish me. I should be ashamed.

So here we go-

Happy birthday dear 'Downs!
You're such a lovely, great place!
With the roleplayers, the mirthers, the discussers and the clowns!
Oh happy birthday dear 'Downs, you're no waste of space!

I'm afraid thats all I could come up with on such short notice. When time permits I'll give it the happy birthday it deserves!

I'm afraid I can't make it out for the whole party this year. It's absolutely horrible, but I have a bunch of registering for classes to do, and I won't be able to be here the whole time. I remember last years... Such a fun time.

Anyways, since I won't be able to enjoy all of the merriment to be had, I will be sending my best reguards and presents with the beloved Sleepy. He has been nice enough to post the handicrafted card and presents that I will make when I can.

Have a fabulous time dears! This site deserves the greatest celebration to be had!

The mailbag is still open and will be all this week, so don't worry if you haven't been able to post your birthday greetings yet. You can do so today or in the next few days! Here's the link: Barrow-Downs Birthday Mailbag

Thanks to all who have posted so far - it's been fun to read the great variety of posts!
