The Old Soldier has rediscovered Hormel Chili with beans in a can. I can get the chili from the CVS/Pharmacy two blocks down the street from my apartment building. I do my supermarket shopping in Little Italy, but on a cold, snowy day like today, waiting for the bus or making the half-an-hour walk to shop is too much to put up with. So I stock up on cans of Hormel Chili with beans.
I’m going to have some chili as soon as I post this.
(Here’s an aside you may find interesting. CVS/Pharmacy is a national chain and the last report on the company that I read said the company is doing fine. Of course, the stores are pharmacies, but you can also find items in the stores that other pharmacies don’t carry like can goods, wrapped sandwiches, dairy products, a pinch of produce, packaged dry foods, snack foods and so on. Needless to say, this re-enforced my idea that an online magazine about erotic flash fiction and how to write it could also include within its pages art, culture, creative writing and sex.)
Hello hello hello, all you readers and writers of erotic flash fiction! The Old Soldier is reporting for duty. Outside there’s plenty of snow and slush on the ground and snow has been falling all day. Although the Pittsburgh area is not getting hit as badly by the new storm as some other places are being hit in the Northeast. The bad weather keeps me inside; but that’s okay. My office is in my apartment and this blog keeps me busy.
Since the transition from being a .com to a .net a few days ago, I’ve manually updated every broken link on this site. That was around 600 original links. There are still photos that don’t show up, but I can only find them if I happen to come across them. So, for all practical purposes the part of the transition under my direct control is complete. The three directories that list this blog have all updated their listings and my writers are in the process of updating their links to this site. The search engines are slowly updating their listings. Even though a search will bring up the old .com links (they tell a visitor the site is shut down) the newer .net links are moving to the top of the page.
What does all of this mean? It means that pageviews have begun a slow, but steady trend upwards.
Now for a hot cup of chili.
Keep reading and keep writing that erotic flash fiction. And don’t forget to check out the best gangbang stories on the Internet. Go to the sidebar, scroll down to Categories and click on “Porn.”
This is the Old Soldier reporting for the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette, a blog of art, culture, writing and sex.
