I’m Guy Hogan, your favorite smut blogger reporting for duty! The unseasonably warm weather we’ve been getting in Pittsburgh recently is over unless something truly weird happens which is always a possibility in the crazy world we live in. The next few days will be in the mid 30s. Today there will be a mix of clouds and sunshine and the high will be 36. No big deal. I grew up in Pittsburgh. I live in Pittsburgh.
How’s everyone doing? I hope you’re doing well. If you’re not doing well I hope my little online diary/smut magazine will bring a little joy into your life. And if you are doing well, that’s even better.
Yesterday, I was talking to one of the regulars at Armand’s in Little Italy. He’s a retiree like I am and he said his biggest issue with retirement is boredom. I understood exactly what he was talking about. He does work on a food truck from time to time, but when the weather gets cold the food truck business goes into hibernation.
That’s why I’m thankful that I have blogging to keep me busy. Blogging is a year-round business. I can’t wait to get to my workstation in the morning. Usually, I’m on the internet before the sun comes up. And since I’m retired, I don’t have to make a living by blogging. Oh, I get a kick out of every time Mr Skin/Naked News sends me a check, but every check I get is pure gravy. I blog because I have a passion for blogging. Blogging helps to keep me young.
Yesterday, I also got a letter from the Social Security Administration: “Your Social Security benefits will increase by 2.0% in 2018 because of a rise in the cost of living.”
Happy days! Actually, the increase is right on time since in November my rent went up $10.00 a month. Now I should be getting a similar letter from the Department of Veterans Affairs about my military pension. My Giant Eagle pension will never change. I’m just glad to have it…
Hail to Pitt!
“Now that I’m retired, I have plenty of time to reflect on my life. There have been plenty of good times and plenty of bad times. I would say the two greatest traumas of my life was my father being a wife beater when he was drunk and me serving in Vietnam when I was nineteen years old. I joined the army when I was eighteen years old. Even though my father had stopped beating my mother by the time I was twelve, I didn’t want to be around him. He was a good man and I loved him. He was an electric welder in the local steel industry. But when he got drunk he turned into a wife beater. He did eventually stop drinking and of course the beatings stopped, too. Both my parents are dead now. They both lived well into old age. And they stayed together until the end. The point is, I have plenty to blog about and now I have the time and financial security to do it.”–Guy Hogan
