    As Grampy Bobby has been reminding us, Red Hot Pawn reaches its fifteenth birthday today. Today is the day to recognise it.

    Happy fifteenth birthday, Red Hot Pawn!

    It's a real achievement to create such a popular and long-lasting site that gives so much enjoyment to so many people!

    Thank you, Russ! 🙂

    And thanks again to Grampy Bobby for making us all aware that RHP is Fifteen today! 🙂

    We can't beat Facebook on many metrics, but they will never catch up with our 3 additional years of service. 😉

    Yes, my wife calls RHP my Facebook, the main difference is she has actual face time with her FB friends.

    Yes, sorry, Russ, I hadn't seen that post.

    But thanks should really go to Grampy Bobby who has been reminding us all for quite a while. I just like to do birthday greetings on the day itself!

    Here's to the next fifteen! 🙂

    And my 15 year anniversary with RHP is coming up in just a few more days!

    Here's what we looked like in very early 2001.

    Thanks!

    The credit for RHP obviously lies with Russ, but the credit for remembering the 15th birthday is all yours, Grampy Bobby. I just wanted your reminders not to get swamped among all the noise and gave it all a bump and a boost in fresh clothes, so to speak! 🙂
