    Hile SKMB'ers!


    For those that don't know me, my name's Cheryl, folks call me CJ and I've been a King fan for 30+ yrs now. I started the social group, Stephen King Trivia here 4 years ago, yes we're still kicking! Since SK's birthday this year was a milestone, I decided to get him something special. So one night I'm on FB(yes, hopelessly addicted to it, say sorry!) and I come across this gift given to a friend of mine by her daughter. It was a tower made out of the hard cover book, Dark Tower 7. Don't ask me how she did it but I thought it was amazing! I wasn't sure how many folks I should include in the gift so decided on 19 folks, for obvious reasons(to DT fans anyway. I then contacted the artist, Becky Rupnow and we commissioned her to create one for SK. The result is below. We think it came out great!
    We know it was delivered to SK but we aren't sure yet if he has opened/seen it. I didn't want to post to this thread until I knew he had seen it because I wanted it to be a surprise, but now that his birthday is over I guess it's o.k. to finally share it with you all.

    These are the SKMB'ers that pitched in for it:

    Ally, dsurrett, blunthead, seneca_v, king family fan, deba913, Evil Queen, Rocky Wood, Jax, DiAnne Wood, Autumnlyn, Srbo, Aspergillus, JellybeanJay, Mommy2Keira&thaddeus(Jan Falvey Long) Ms Thunderclap(Karen Beaudrie), belladonna(Donna Girard), Sknut1970(Dawn Kemp) and myself, MyLife4youSK.

    Autumnlyn had the idea to put John Dalglish's name on the top which we all thought was fitting and appropriate. 21 names in all are included on the tower and in between the beams. If I included the link correctly you should be able to see all the different angles and names.

    I also included print out birthday greetings from many fans some from SKT and some from the FB group SK Central. The card I bought said it all, 'You mean SO much to so many people., Happy Birthday from two(crossed out two and put 21) of them!'

    Stephen, if you are reading this, we know how much the Dark Tower means to you so wanted to give you this special gift. We hope you were blown away by it or at the very least touched by the sentiment. Thankee sai Wordslinger for all you've given us. Long birth days and present nights. xoxo

    He asked me to pass this message along:

    ....Lots of goodies from lots of Constant Readers. I hope you'll thank them on my behalf for the swag and for all the good wishes. I felt younger at once.

    It was packed with lots of styrofoam peanuts and paper packed around it. Don't know how it got to CJ, but she and Donna brought it in their car from NH to Bangor and then it was taken in another private car to Steve so avoided more handling via delivery services which probably helped.
