I am vaccinated one year later!

It has been one year since I became a “fully vaccinated” person. I first received my COVID-19 vaccine in Castle Shannon by getting my first dose of it in late April … and I received the second dose of the vaccine nearly one month later. The vaccine is from Pfizer. Last June, I wrote my 1,625th blog post, which was about me becoming a “fully vaccinated” person. Even though I’m “fully vaccinated,” I’m still wearing my mask when I go out in public, but I don’t wear my mask when I take my walks around National Hill.

I would get the COVID-19 Booster vaccine before the end of 2021.

Joseph’s Flashback: I once went to various Kmart stores in the Pittsburgh area!

Whenever I was younger, I would visit various Kmart stores around the Pittsburgh area. The store in Chartiers Valley Shopping Center in Collier Township, which closed in April of 2018 after more than 40 years, was the one that was closest to me. I spent a lot of time in that K-Mart store … and I also went to some other Kmart stores over the years, including the one in Peters Township and the one in Parkway Center Mall. I also went to Super Kmart Center in Moon Township … and that was also a great store to shop at. I especially liked the restaurant that was inside of that Super Kmart Center.

Sadly, there are no more Kmart stores in the Pittsburgh area or in all of Pennsylvania … and there are now only three Kmart stores nationwide. One is in New Jersey, one is in Florida and one is in New York State. I will remember going to Kmart for a long time.

Joseph Has A New Pittsburgh Pirates T-Shirt!

I received a grey Pittsburgh Pirates T-shirt for my 36th birthday … and I was able to wear it for a few hours today. The shirt is fantastic … and it’s from Majestic.

On the shirt, there is a Pirates logo on the front of the shirt … and, under it, the words “Pittsburgh Pirates Baseball” can be found on the shirt. The word “Pittsburgh” is small and is in yellow. The word “Pirates” is in the middle … and it’s big. The top half of the word is yellow … and the bottom half of the word is black. At the bottom, the word “Baseball” is small and is black.

The shirt is fantastic … and I plan to wear it often during baseball season.

First, he stood on all four legs while he was on the seat.

Let’s Talk About A Past Blog Post: Joseph Likes The Southern Beltway!

In April of 2019, I wrote a blog post entitled “Joseph Likes The Southern Beltway!” In it, I talked about the Southern Beltway, which would open more than two years after I wrote the blog post. The roadway starts at Pittsburgh International Airport at Interstate 376 and it ends at Interstate 79, just north of Southpointe. I saw a bridge that went over Route 980 in McDonald three years ago … and the bridge would be part of the new Southern Beltway.

I was inspired to write this blog post because I wanted to talk about a fantastic roadway … and, since I wrote the blog post, the Southern Beltway has opened to traffic. It opened in October of 2021. I have not been on the new highway yet, but I have seen bits and pieces of it. Hopefully, I can ride on it soon.

Here’s the link to the blog post …
