2941 Aragorn is 10
when Bilbo, Gandalf and dwarves visit Rivendell in June
As one of several fosterlings around Rivendell he might blend in with elves, half elves and humans. But I would like to hear his name called somewhere in a group - perhaps the group of humorous singers which greets the travellers includes a boy?
2951 Aragorn is told his true identity & meets Arwen (home from Lothlorien)
3019 (1 March) Aragorn (his 88th birthday) meets Gandalf and they go to Edoras.
I can see it would have been corny and irrelevant for this to have been mentioned; we would have been reminded of Bilbo's hundred and eleventy first birthday; and anyway 87 somehow has more dignity than 88 (eg call phrase in Bingo "two fat ladies")
