I did stop at Nico’s. V was behind the bar. It was good to see her. A few of the regulars were there. It was great to be able to forget my problems for awhile. I really have no other network of friends besides the ones I see at the places where I stop in for a beer. I had two beers. Then I went to the supermarket and picked up a bunch of bananas for lunch next week at the employment and training center. I picked up a loaf of Pumpernickel and several Milky Way candy bars to eat on the bus while I read the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on my way to the center next week. And I picked up a bottle of hot sauce, floss and a Sunday newspaper. Then at the tavern across from my bus stop I picked up a six pack and then caught my bus home.
