Happy Birthday J. R. R. Tolkien

For some reason, I really want to smoke a pipe right now...
Today marks the 122nd birthday of John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, more commonly known as J. R. R. Tolkien. Since my blog's name is based on a line from The Hobbit, I think its pretty obvious that I really respect Prof. Tolkien and his work. Hell, this hobby might be an entirely different beast if The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings didn't exist.

Happy birthday Prof. Tolkien. You left your mark on an entire genre of fiction and created some great works of fiction that still entertain people to this day.
