Thumbs up 22 Years of the Barrow-Downs!

Esty is not around, so someone has to post it.

*Looks right... looks left... looks right again...*

I guess it's me.



The Barrow-downs is 22 years old today! That's something like your bicentennial in Internet years. But while the forum is quiet, I think the burst of posting around the Amazon LotR trailer earlier this winter suggests that the forum slumbers more than it perishes.

Here's to another year!

Ah, tempus fugit, but it's nice that some things endure.

Cheers to the Downs.

Twenty-two years? I don't feel tardy, but I guess I am.

Snowdog has just left Hobbiton.
Pipe Late as usual...

May 2000 ... when we realized the world wasn't going to melt down at the turn of Y2K, and the realization that there were movies being made of those wonderful Lord of the Rings books! Remembering the EZ Board daze and the fun speculation about the upcoming PJ fanfix. Happy 22nd Barrow Downs.

A wizard - umm, I mean moderator! - is never late! I was packing for my first big trip after all the virus restrictions, so I missed posting anything about the Downs' birthday this year! Parties in recent years haven't been very exciting, so I guess no one really missed that - maybe there will be more going on next year...
