Since it's looking like PH is no more, or at least, on hold indefinitely, I wanted us to have a place to meet up and keep in touch.

Welcome to the Social Club!

Most of you know me as Mimi, from Port Halcyon and everywhere else!

Please stop in and post a quick Intro here for the new folks, and then let's pick up where we left off!

Kittenwithawhip here! Y'all know me from Port Halcyon (I thought of that name!) and of course from the good old ATOMIC days. Bear with me, I haven't done the retro thing in a long time and I'm just ramping up again. I finally bought some great stuff and was just INCHES away from posting it under the "Show us your stuff" thread when - KABOOM - the cafe went up in a big mushroom cloud.

What a pisser.

In Other News: Hey, Ali, GREAT avatar! I thought I was the only one who knew about Hilda!

Speaking of avatars, what a lovely Vogue cover, majorwifey! Not only is the content of most magazines less than stellar these days, oh, how I long for the vintage covers -- they truly were works of art. I've actually been thinking about writing an article on the subject for awhile -- the high-tone womens' and home & garden mags, specifically, from the '20s - early '60s.

Heh! Me too - I just sent out my last batch of Christmas cards this week. When I got back from vacation, I noticed all my mail piled up on the table as requested. Unfortunately, my housesitter took it ALL inside, including the mail I'd left to go OUT that first day. Oh well! Better late than never.

While we're at it, I didn't get the cards either...and I feel awful about it, since I'm the one who pushed for the card swap!

Oh well, at least a good many people did swap cards and we kept it going!

Hi all!

Great to see some regulars plus the new folks, course I guess I'm new around here as well,huh? My nickname is the_librarian and, well, um...I'm actually a librarian with a great love of all retro books and magazines. I've got a bunch of stuff, that to non-retros is a pile of junk, but to me is sheer treasure. In particular I concentrate on the eras 1920-1965. I also have a great love for pulp fiction (the paper kind, not the movie) and love to hack away at some stories about such. Guess I'm not the Indiana Jones type except in my mind, but I still try to have fun each day.

Looking forward to meeting and talking all about retro stuff.

See ya,

Glad to know I'm not the only one didn't manage cards this year. (I think maybe the first time ever!) I did, however, manage to take them out of storage. They're currently stacked on my desk. I expect I'll put them away in, say, April.

Hi everyone! I made it!
Thanks to Tony for pointing me in the right direction. I hope we can make this place as cool as Port Halcyon/Atomic (R.I.P. Sad )

I'll volunteer to moderate if you still need anyone, Mimi!

Great, Susie, Thanks!

I'm going to put you on the Next Rotation.

I think if we do it in shifts, no one will get sick of it! Unless there is something that is Your Specialty and want full-time Mod duty, just yell out!
