Hello hello hello hello hello hello, all my fans who live all over the world with a special hello to all my fans in Turkey! Welcome to today’s issue of the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette.
How’s everyone doing?
Well, it’s an overcast day in Pittsburgh and the high will only be around 70. But it’s still a good day for blogging and a good day for exploring the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette.
A couple of days ago I put my crock pot to work and I cooked up a mess of lima beans, ham hocks and carrots. I got good eating for several days. A writer has to eat!
And yesterday I stopped in at Sonny’s Tavern again. And guess what? Sonny’s Tavern has karaoke again. Now it’s every other Sunday; although I plan to be at Nico’s in Little Italy for karaoke this Saturday night. But Sonny’s Tavern is only two blocks from my apartment building.
Yesterday at Sonny’s Tavern, I got to socialize with some young people and one young man told me his grandfather had fought in the Pacific in World War II. He used a flame thrower. He survived the battle of Iwo Jima and then after World War II he volunteered for the Korean War and survived that, too. He stayed in the reserves and retired as a colonel. Amazing. That’s a hell of a story. And it’s probably true. The young man told me about his grandfather because I told him I was a Vietnam War veteran.
Well, I’ll be updating the front page during the day, changing the featured posts from the archives.
This is the Old Soldier reporting from Pittsburgh.
Hail to Pitt!
