Things of the Day

Sorry, I forgot to post yesterday's "Things of the Day."
How is this for a random picture?
A LOTR Ping-pong machine! I've actually played on one of these (it didn't look like this, though).

Behind the scenes - part 8.

What Happened On This Day
On Earth
1918 - J.R.R. Tolkien is officially released from Brooklands Hospital, Birmingham.
1999 - Principal photography for The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy begins.
2010 - Chilean Tolkien Society's Mereth Oronnad.

In Arda
T.A. 3018:
With Frodo severely wounded, Strider and the four hobbits travel slowly towards Rivendell.
Glorfindel drives three Riders off the Last Bridge of Mitheithel and pursues them westward. He meets two others who flee southward. He leaves a beryl on the Bridge. He starts looking for the travellers.
Gandalf hurries towards Rivendell after the Black Riders attacked him on Weathertop.
Boromir travels towards Rivendell to ask for counsel.
