On November 17, 2018, while I was at the Shop ‘n Save store in Imperial, I bumped into Brandon McEwen, who went to South Fayette High School with me in the 2000s.

On November 17, 2018, while I was shopping at Imperial Shop ‘n Save with my relatives, I bumped into Brandon McEwen, who went to South Fayette High School with me in the 2000s.  I have bumped into some terrific people over the years … and, of course, you never know who you’re gonna bump into whenever you go out and about.  Who knows?  I may turn those moments into blog posts … and I’ve done that several times over the past four years.

Next time, “Mr. Classy” will give you a little pre-Thanksgiving treat.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around November 20th in previous years …

I have owned my leather jacket for one year!

For just over one year, I have owned my black leather jacket, which is from Vintage Leather.  I purchased the jacket for around 135 dollars or so on kohls.com.  It is one of two jackets that turns me into “Mr. Classy.”  The other one is the grey Michael Kors jacket, of course.  I’ve worn the jacket a few times over the past year … and I will try to wear it many times this Winter.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around November 19th in previous years …

An “ode” to a friend named “Deek”

If you were growing up in the ’90s like me, you may have seen a rather unique logo on television.  It was for a production company called DiC.  It was pronounced “Deek” … and you heard someone say the word almost every single time.

I’m not going to talk about that company, but I would like to talk about the word “Deek” itself.  In fact, one of my friends sometimes uses that name.  His real name is Derek Cryblskey.  I talked about him in a blog post earlier this year.  Derek is a terrific friend and a classy neighbor.  He is polite, funny and down-to-earth.  Sometimes, I call him “Deek.”  Again, he’s just a terrific friend.

On May 19, 2018, me and Derek Cryblskey, who is one of my friends, were able to wear the camouflaged Yeti shirts with class. Derek is one of the classiest people that I’ve ever known.

Joseph’s 1,000th Blog Post

Well, ladies and gentlemen, this is it.  Today is a big day for me and for my blog.  I am writing my 1,000th blog post on my blog … and, as I’ve been saying for weeks now, it could be about a person, a place or a thing.  Well, after giving this a lot of thought. I’ve decided that my 1,000th blog post will be about a person.

This is Joseph’s 1,000th blog post. He has this sign to prove it.

My 1,000th blog post will be about a classy friend of mine … and this friend is cool, casual and classy in many ways.  The person’s name is Justin McKean.  I first became friends with him while I was at South Fayette High School back on January 23, 2007.  He was one of the three substitute teachers that I had while I was at the school back then.  For nearly 12 years now, Justin has been a terrific friend of mine … and I bumped into him several times since then.  I bumped into him at McSummerfest in July of 2016.  He’s able to be cool, casual and classy on so many levels … and I often get my fashion and wardrobe ideas from him.  Thank you, Justin, for being a terrific friend of mine … and thank you for allowing me to talk about you in my 1,000th blog post.
