Just as I had hoped my veterans pension was electronically deposited in my checking account this morning and after I publish this blog post and work on The Gazette a little bit and surf the web a little bit and then do my deep breathing and flexibility and stretching exercises and after I shower and dress warmly and purchase some household supplies at the dollar store across the street I’ll quick-march to Armand’s for my first beer of the day. Then I’ll stop in at Sonny’s Tavern on the way back home. My sources tell me there will be karaoke at Sonny’s Sunday night and I plan to be there…
Hello hello hello, all you rock and rollers! Welcome to my diary/smut magazine. I’m having too much fun being a full-time professional blogger. So far the pay isn’t much but I am operating in the black and there is always the hope that 2018 will be a banner year for this entrepreneur. I’m too legit to quit!
Hail to Pitt!
There will be more clouds than sunshine today in the Pittsburgh area with morning snow flurries and a high of 22.

“I have found for me the main issues of retirement when you have always been a low-income working-class man who is a life long bachelor and who has no children are the issues of staying busy and staying engaged. Being a full-time professional blogger keeps me busy and helps me to stay engaged. Only after putting up a blog post do I allow myself to hang out in Little Italy, but even hanging out in Little Italy keeps me busy and engaged because I’m still a blogger absorbing material. What I like about my little diary/smut magazine is everything can be used as content.”–Guy Hogan
“It’s a funny thing. When I write a short story I try with varying degrees of success to write more like Hemingway. When I blog I try to blog with varying degrees of success to write more like Kerouac. I guess this reinforces what a doctor told me many years ago when I was a homeless Vietnam War vet and going through a rough spot in my life. I ended up in the hospital. After a battery of exams, the doctor told me physically I was fine but I was a borderline personality. True story. No doubt I’m still a borderline personality, but now it comes out as far as I know only when I blog and write. I guess I blog and write not because I want to but because I have to. Therapy.”–Guy Hogan
