Anyhow, Happy Birthday Professor!
Even though he hated being called that. XD

Nah, hated would be too strong a description.
In letter 109 to (by then Sir) Stanley Unwin dated 31 July 1947, but not sent until 21 September, whom he addressed as "Dear Unwin" as a greeting, apparently at Unwin's request, he called the title professor "... one has rather to live down than insist on."

Shouldn't a JRRT birthday thread be a sticky thread in "News from Bree"? One with the possibility for all members to post, obviously.
