In about one hour, the Old Soldier will go on a beer run to Armand’s in Little Italy. Armand’s opens around 10:00 a.m. There may be three or four other customers in the place, people who don’t have to work or can’t find work (I’m retired). I’ll sit at the bar, sip my beer, glance at whatever’s on television, maybe shoot the breeze with Joe the bartender (the Steelers lost last night making them 0-4 for the pre-season and the Pirates lost, too) and I’ll do some writing in my composition notebook as I watch Liberty Avenue beyond the front window.
I’ve been planning the coming attractions for September. There will be two sexy flash fiction stories (from Anna Bayes and Heather Kinnane). I’ll be at Nico’s in Little Italy for karaoke tomorrow night. So, there’ll be a new report on karaoke in September…
Beer and writing in Armand’s seem to go together. At least it does for me. I’ve been a beer drinker my entire adult life, ever since I joined the army way back in 1964 when I was 18. Over the years, I’ve written many flash fiction stories as I’ve sat drinking beer in a bar. Beer has gotten me through some bad times in life. And of course, you must have beer to sing karaoke…
Now that I realize how important SEO is to the success of this blog, there’ll probably be a few more reports on SEO in September. The “Woman As Art” photo series will continue to grace these pages. And whatever tips I can share about writing flash fiction stories will be duly reported, too.
Add some content about sex in one form or another and flash commentaries on the local sports scene and September is shaping up as another month of reading on this blog that appeals to the intellect and the libido.
