    I see that your screen name has returned to the short stories forum. I'm so sorry I'm so behind even in reading your earlier posts! Determined to do it, though, and will get to them soon. I'm typing a reminder right now!

    Welcome back!
  2. Thanks MM. Although I tell myself its for self amusement, its gratifying when the stories are read, double gratifying when someone enjoys them, especially on a discerning forum like this.

    Somehow I've not had the time to get back onto the picture posting process, but thanks anyway. I suppose its being spoiled by all these bright young secretaries that normally do all that for me!

    Best regards

    Hi MANICHAEAN - I was just going over some old mail - did you ever figure out how to post pictures?

    Go to photobucket http://photobucket.com/ and get an account - upload the picture(s) you want to post to it and when you click on them a box appears in a new window with various options, the last of which is image url - clicking on this copies the link to your clipboard and when then pasting within a post the image miraculously appears

    Enjoying your latest writings immensely

    I was about to make some suggestions re: technique in your latest, but I see that today's posting is part one of what may be assumed to be more to come. So as not to disrupt
    the continuity, I will reserve my replies until it concludes. I don't want your postings to be neglected, though.
  5. Hi Sweety
    Just got back to my camp in the desert and have started tonight with the first installment of the first story I wrote on leave. It is called "Kiss Kiss / Bang Bang and" inspiration came from Raymond Chandler "The Big Sleep," Ian Flemings "Dr No", Oscar Wilde, The BBC News & a half bottle of Jamesons! Hope you enjoy.
    Best regards

    Hi M.,

    That was a nice surprise to receive a message. I hope you've enjoyed your leave in this neck of the woods.

    I also hope that you're at the moment not in the vicinity of natural and/or man-made disasters and civil unrest.

    Take care and stay safe.

    Regards, S.

    Hope you don't think yours fooly is a pest! Keep in mind, though, every time I post a critical comment on one of your thread it gets "bumped!"
    Best wishes.
  8. I am, to use a very British word "knackered!" I leave camp tomorrow at 2.50am and fly back to the UK for a couple of weeks leave. I intend to sleep, relax,cook for my two daughters, read, & with a bit of luck, write. So watch this spot from April 4th onwards.
    Seriously though, I'm fine & trust you are as well.
    Take care

    Hey! Hope you are doing well!
  10. I hope not. I'm surprised sometimes at some of the sex scenes I have got away with.
    If it's to open the floodgates of charges of anti semitism then they really have not got the plot. Hemingway in "To Have & to Have Not" made frequent use of the "n---er" word, but it was in context to the what he was describing. So you are in good company. Courage mon brave.
