Nice moment yesterday when Offspring XX Scholar and I were talking about Jenny/Yenni's blog of awesome art that seems to be all based on characters from a Tolkien book. I think. Anyway, I mentioned how much my father liked those books, and OXXS was surprised to learn that about her Grandfather, since she just remembers him as an old guy who was pretty handicapped with Parkinson's. Really nice for me to be able to talk about something positive about Dad, something he and she had in common.
Almost makes me want to go read one of those books. But--big embarrassing reveal--I never even finished The Hobbit.
I'd read it, though, and all of the Rings, if I could magically draw like Jenny/Yenni.
