Hello hello hello, all you rock ‘n’ rollers and all you lovers of classical music, too! Oh, I love my rock ‘n’ roll but when I want to relax on the sofa on my back with two pillows under my weary head and to read a novel or a collection of short stories I’ve got to have classical music low on the radio on a lovely morning like this one in Pittsburgh and right now I am on my back on the sofa with two pillows under my weary head as I jot these notes in my notebook to be transcribed later into a blog post for the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette and classical music is low on the radio right now as I contemplate the rest of my day.
One of the things I’m going to do is to start reading the two books I checked out of the main branch of the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh yesterday. The books are the novel Banker by Dick Francis and a collection of short stories titled Signals by Tim Gautreaux. I’m very familiar with the work of Dick Francis who is one of my favor writers of mystery but Tim Gautreaux is new to me. He was suggested to me by Jean Michelle who is a new contributor to my little girlie blog. That’s Jean Michelle all over the front page of The Gazette. She illustrates her work with her own selfies. Check out the two erotic flash fiction stories of this talented writer and her revealing interview.
After a couple of relaxing hours on the sofa on my back with the two pillows under my weary head reading my two books from the library while listening to classical music low on the radio I’ll sally forth for a nice stroll down to Schenley Plaza on this sunny, mild day in Pittsburgh and then I’ll stroll back to my shabby but comfy apartment to once again take up my favorite position on the sofa and I’ll watch silent films on YouTube on my laptop while listening to Pirates baseball on the radio.
I did my deep breathing, flexibility, breathing and stretching exercises this morning for I plan to be at Sonny’s Tavern one week from today for karaoke that night but for right now it’s a lazy hazy crazy day of summer in the city of my birth. Pittsburgh you’re my home!
Hail to Pitt!
