The novel Factotum by Charles Bukowski is 205 pages long. I’m on page 132. I’m happy to report that at my age I’ve discovered a writer who is now one of my favorite writers and that I have the rest of his work to look forward to reading.
Hello, all my fans who live all over the world! The Old Soldier is reporting for duty. Finally, after several days of overcast skies, we are getting a little sunshine here in The ‘Burgh. It will be partly sunny today with the high in the 60s.
The Pitt Panthers beat Virginia Tech 21-16 last night here in Pittsburgh. I fell asleep on the sofa listening to the game. I guess I’m not the football fan I use to be.
Hail to Pitt!
But I have become a big-time fan of Ramen Noodles. I’ve got this Ramen Noodles gig down to an art form: pre-cooked meat, raw vegetables, boiling water, noodles and in 3-5 minutes a hot, nutritious meal. And it’s so cheap. At least it’s a lot cheaper than how I use to eat. And a writer’s got to eat.
I’ve already updated the front page so be sure to check it out. This is the Old Soldier reporting for the PittsburghFlashFiction.
