Hello everyone,
I know there's a way to find old threads I started, but I can't remember how it's done.
Help. Please.

It's easy one you know how. Really!

Click on your own user name in any post you've made, such as this question. Among the options on the drop-down menu is Find More Posts by Red Bird..

Maryn, pretty sure you can take it from there

Also, in your Profile (not your User CP, although you can get to your Profile from there, of course), under the Statistics tab is "Find all threads started by...".

How's it going Red Bird? Blade here.
Not had a look on this site for ages, hope everyone is keeping well.
My second book 'Sharpe as a Blade 2 (A 70s Trip) is selling well.
Just started doing a re-write of the first one, concentrating mainly on my early life in the 1950s.
Take care.
Blade.

Blade,
I'm so happy for you. Do send me a copy of your second book :) I don't know what happened to most of the people who were on the memoir section? Where's Wayne? Blue?
Cheers,
Red

Wayne has, as they say, 'left the building.'

Will do :) Now don't you go and bend too far in any given direction.
I've missed your message of cheer!
Red

No more Wayne. Boo to that.

Well Red, I had a bit of a weird weekend, things never go as planned. A birthday barbeque on Saturday ended with my Daughters trying to rip lumps out of each other, they’re still not talking to each other, bloody kids eh!
How’s it going on writing front with you?
Like I said I’m doing a re-write of my first book. It will be completely different though.
I read a book a few months ago by Keith Waterhouse called There is a happy land. It’s about growing up on a Yorkshire council estate just after WW2. It’s written through the eyes of a 10 year old boy and it’s really inspired me. The writer’s upbringing is very similar to my own, and while I wouldn’t dream of copying him, I’m trying to recreate his style. I’ll have to send in a bit of my work to crit.
Well I hit the ripe old age of 60 last year, so I thought I’d better do something about it. I joined a gym, stopped smoking and got married. I’m still at the gym, still married, but I’ve started smoking again, I suppose two out three aint bad though.
Anyway take care.
Blade.

Blade,
I'd say two out of three is pretty good. Ha. I will be 49 in a month and I haven't made any lofty changes :) I'm thinking I have another year to be a dork and then I'm going to have to get it together.
Yes, kids are a trip. I'm going to see if I can remember how to pm you so I can get that book of yours.
