“I am eleventy-one today!”

It’s my father’s birthday today, in fact, it would have been his 111th birthday, and that makes my think of good ol’ Bilbo, of course.  While Frodo kept celebrating Bilbo’s birthday because he was sure Bilbo was still alive, we are not quite so lucky, but won’t stop remembering Jupp even though we are quite sure not to run into him again in our own personal Rivendell one day.  Well, maybe in a sub-creation like Middle Earth we will, anyway.

Jupp Kappius in 1965

Happy Birthday, Jupp.  This day you could say with Bilbo:

“Today is my one hundred and eleventh birthday:
I am eleventy-one today!”
