One day over six years

Postby Tower of Iron Will » Sat Aug 17, 2013 10:17 pm

Hello all...

Wow, six years. Doesn't seem so long ago on one hand but looking at where I was it seems like a lifetime ago. I was living in Sacramento, CA, and had a job at a shipping/freight forwarder company. I had a small apartment, a cat, various girlfriends on and off, and Crown Knights were about to make their debut.

I had been lurking for a long time before joining. I first started to realize the online fan base of LEGO when I found "Castle World" on LUGnet in 2000 or thereabouts. Unfortunately, Castle World was dead or very close to it. My sigfig was a character that I had created to have join up but, alas, it was not meant to be. I had found this site in 2004 but was reluctant to join...I was unfamiliar with sites like this, so I would check in every so often. Three years later I just had the urge to become more involved in this hobby, so I joined up.

Now, six years later, I'm in the western half of Colorado, working for a local office of a large instrumentation manufacturing company, my cat of 17 plus years passed last December, my most recent girlfriend broke up with me a month before that...I guess I'm trying to get some sense of stability in my life. Thanking heaven for the job I have and, ironically, new Crown Knights.

Thank you to all and your top notch advice, Mocs, jokes, customizing, contests, pictures of new Castle sets, etc., etc. over the years, and even now with the new Garheim & Loreos mocs and stories. Enjoy every minute of it, thanks again.

It seems many of us lurked around this site before actually deciding to join.
Happy six years, and many more to come! :D

Happy 6 year reunion.

I lurked this site for quite some time (7-8 months) before I joined as well. I do wish I had joined sooner and gotten involved with this wonderful community.

Here's to 6 more years for you :)

Congratulations on 6 years!

I almost wished I lurked, because I probably would have joined sooner... anyway, I hope I can stick around as long as some you ol' vets! :D
