    16 years? Impressive. And thank you for your service! :)

    That is a very good question. I had to look at my profile page. I’ve been a member since August 2015. Before that I was a lurker. I wonder what made me make the jump? The FL has proved to be a keeper. The subjects are right up my alley and this is possibly the ONLY place on the Internet Where the membership is civil, well informed, intelligent and with a sense of humor. (No doubt, I exaggerate. But only a little.) As I said, it’s a keeper.

    I've been a member here for 14.5 years. I remember Paddy as one of the bartenders when I started.

    It'll be sixteen years for me in the fall. That's a lot of jackets and hats ago. Lots of film and TV (and so on) discussions too.

    The records indicate I've been a member here since February 7, 2010, so a little over 10 years officially and about a year or so prior to that in lurker mode.

    Yes, great to see Captain Paddy on the boards! Paddy was one of the first TFLers I met IRL. Good to see you alive and kicking!

    According to my profile I joined on 20 June 2007, so I'm just into being a teenager on these pages. I first lurked from about March that year. I was putting together a Joker costume for a burlesque night, and a search for "high waisted morning trousers" on google stumvled me here. I was already becoming interested in dressing more rockabilly (from a psychobilly stage; the usual progression when old punks get too fat for bondage trousers, ha...), and the burlesque club some friends ran inspired an interest in the more 30s/40s stuff.

    16 years for this guy too. As a result of the Lounge I’ve met good people who’ve not only broadened my love of vintage but life experiences too.

    Here’s to another 16
