Hey!

Welcome to the forums! It's a great experience for an aspiring writer to come to the forums, review and critique, post some of your work, and so much more.

We have a great Mentor program that helps out new members. Contact one of them if you have any questions.

It's great to have a new member on board.

You seem very interesting, and someone I could probably relate to, however, I am probably not as old or gifted as you are. PM me if you want..

Talk to you later,

-James

See you around.

Thanks For Your Welcoming Notes

It's been 9 months since I was last at this site. You would not think I was retired from full-time work. It seems there is a life outside the internet posting that I do. While I'm here I'll post 2 or 3 items and see what the rule is on critiquing the work of others.-Ron

Huh? I was supposed to say that!

Welcome to the forums. We rarely receive such an elaborate introduction.

welcome, fellow 'eldster'!... it's nice to see another person 'of mature years' show up on the forum... i've 7 years and 4 kids on you, but we match in the number of marriages, at least... don't know about the 'retired' bit, though... as long as i can click these keys, i guess i'll still be working, since i can't think of anything better to do... but, it's not working for money, so that makes it pleasure, not pain...

i'm sure you'll like it here... i'm looking forward to seeing what you write...

love and hugs, maia

Thanks for all those welcoming notes. I hope to get to this site more often in 2006. I only made it twice in 2005. Although I'm retired I seem to be as busy as ever. I remember the island of Tinian. The only time it came into my life was when I was teaching history and I showed a particular film many times. It involved the B29s taking off from Tinian before dropping their nuclear payload on Japan. Other than that it looks like a paradise. I'll try and leave a couple of writing items here before I leave on this the first day of 2006.-Ron

Traces are left, a trace remains. Thus we can speak of remnants of the past in the same way or a different way, from the way we speak of relics or monuments.

Remnants are left or remain...interesting distinction, thoughtful work. I'm new here and so far having a grand time. Welcome (back).

Well here I am 11 months later. Don't give up on me folks; I've been off the radar screen writing my autobiography or, should I more properly call it, memoirs.-Ron

And 17 months later here I am again. It seems in these years of late adulthood(60 to 80) life is busy in one way or another and getting to these email sites I've joined is proving more difficult than I had anticipated at first. Anyway, as long as I am alive, I shall drop in here occasionally, have a browse and a post. "See yas all lateRon," as they say Downunder.-Ron
-----------------------
The year 2015 has arrived; I'm 70 now and hope to drop in here during my 70s, and 80s, if I last that long, that is, after the year 2024.-Ron

PS my website is now at: http://www.ronpriceepoch.com/auto.html
