Dateline Pittsburgh: 07:10 a.m.
Hello hello hello, all you rockers! This is your Baby Boomer Papa reporting for duty on what will be a rainy day in Pittsburgh with the high in the 40s and the low tonight will be in the 20s but I’m in excellent spirits because the $50.00 check from Mr Skin/Naked News cleared this morning and I will be back on my regular beat in Little Italy this morning for a couple of beers at Armand’s and then this afternoon a quick stop at Sonny’s for a couple of more beers and all is well that ends well.
Yesterday in anticipation of returning to Little Italy today I shaved my face and returned the Dick Francis mystery novel I was reading but couldn’t finish to the public library and checked out a biography of Jack Kerouac that I’ve never read before and A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway that I’ve read several times over the years but I feel the need to read it again so as I said I’m in excellent spirits and after I finish blogging this morning I’m going to do fifteen minutes of deep breathing and flexibility and stretching exercises and then check the news outlets on the internet that I like to follow and then I’m going to jump in the shower and shave my head and your Baby Boomer Papa will be ready to be out and about in Little Italy today and you know you can’t beat that with a stick!
I am also happy to report that yesterday the Pittsburgh Adult got 337 visitors who read 1,558 pages so that my daily page view average for this month inched back up to 1,019 which gives me a shot at achieving my goal of getting at least 1,000 page views every day for one month for the first time in the four year history of this blog and that makes me very happy and if you can’t be happy in retirement what’s the point of being retired?
Hail to Pitt!

“Pittsburgh is my Paris.”–Guy Hogan
“I read and re-read the writings of my favorite writers because doing so makes me a better writer. I like to read about their lives because they were just as messed up or were more messed up than I am.”–Guy Hogan
