Hi there Mechling!

I’m back in business again after being without internet for a few days.

This post was a pure delight, just the thing to come back to and commence my enjoyment at LJ.

Looking at the old photos of the Professor with the children made me squee a little. Just think this might have been the same moment in time that The Hobbit was being read to them.

I love the photo of Edith as a young woman. And my grateful hugs to you for the extra information about her. I remember, vaguely, reading that Tolkien wrote or said about her whilst describing their early courtship ‘…and she can dance!’

Thank you this goes into memories with a capital M :-)

Este, I'm so glad to hear your computer transition went smoothly. Welcome back!

Yeah, I wish there were more family snaps available. Who knows how these were got? Probably not authorized. Maybe when Christopher dies he'll have left word to let more of the personal material (including family photos) concerning Tolkien and their family out to scholars. And, via scholars, in books published for general readers like us.
