Welcome to the new year and the 2017 edition of the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette which I now publish on my own laptop instead of my own desktop like I did for three years or from the public library like I had to do for about a month and since I don’t have Wi-Fi or an Internet connection in my apartment I have to come up with a totally new routine and place to blog which is not as simple as it may seem because I do not want to blog from a bar and the new routine also means no blogging in my underwear or drinking beer in the comfort of my apartment as I blog but don’t worry I’m sure the I’ll find a satisfactory blogging routine that is also sustainable which is absolutely essential if The Gazette is to have continued success…
Yesterday I spent a couple of hours in the friendly confines of Armand’s bar in Little Italy and since I got there in the afternoon instead of my usual time (around 10:30 a.m.) the bar was full of regulars and semi-regulars and it was just nice to get out around other people but the weather was well below freezing and it was no fun walking to and from Armand’s which is like eight blocks from my apartment building…
Yesterday at Armand’s was even more enjoyable because we all rooted for the Steelers who beat the Dolphins and the team will play the Chiefs in Kansas City on Sunday.
