Just old movies on tv
Bright Lights, Big City
It’s around 10:30 at night and the Old Soldier has taken up his favorite position: stretched out on the sofa with two fat pillows under his weary head. The retro-movie channel is on television. I have my books on the Vietnam War, on Occupy Wall Street and on Columbus to keep me company. And there is plenty of ice water and several cans of some energy drink in the refrigerator to quench my thirst.
No money for beer until next week. Sobriety is good discipline.
I did have my fish fry today. I ate a delicious fish sandwich and put the rest of the cooked fish in the refrigerator for another day.
I think I’ll go to bed early.
Oh, the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette has over 5,800 hits for February and we still have five days left in this month.
You can’t beat that with a stick!
