And don't forget Frodo:-)

--Stanley
…on a night of rain Frodo smelled a sweet fragrance on the air and heard the sound of singing that came over the water. And then it seemed to him that as in his dream in the house of Bombadil, the grey rain-curtain turned all to silver glass and was rolled back, and he beheld white shores and beyond them a fair green country under a swift sunrise.

Shall we do a toast to Bilbo like (the Tolkien society and) we do for Tolkien's birthday each year?
Eleventy one years is far too short a time to spend amongst such admirable and excellent Wardrobians.

Oh my. heh. I like the title of this fanfic. It would have been better at about half the length, but otherwise the writing is good:
