I'm thrilled to welcome a fellow Tolkien lover here! We just had Elenwe join as well. Relative of yours??
I'm Openhome, a mod here and fellow 40 something year old.
It is wonderful that your daughter is here as well!
I'm sure you've noticed that there are tons of places to post, and I would like to point out that we have several adult threads here that you might like to begin on. If you have any questions, please feel free to pm me.
