It’s another sunny, warm day around 10:00 AM and the Old Soldier is hungry. I don’t want what I have in the apartment. I want something different. So, I think I’ll take a nice walk to Bloomfield (Pittsburgh’s “Little Italy”) and pick up a couple of cans of Glory Greens at the supermarket. I have never tasted greens out of a can that tasted so good. There’s collard greens, kale and spinach. The greens are perfectly seasoned. You just heat and eat. I have meat in the refrigerator to add to the greens.
And I think I’ll pick me up another six-pack of beer at Armands in Bloomfield. They have the biggest first sandwich in the city. But I’ve got plenty of food. I don’t need to spend money on food. Actually, buying beer at Armands means I won’t be going to karaoke this Friday at Del’s.
So, I’ll sit at the bar in Armands, maybe have a draft or two and scribble in my notebook and see if I can come up with something to blog about.
