We’ve owned our red truck for five years!

This blog post was originally supposed to be written on December 11, 2018.

We have now owned our red Chevrolet truck for five years.  Before that, we had our blue Chevrolet truck for nearly 23 years.  We owned it from October of 1990 until September of 2013.  Our red Chevrolet truck can now be found in the same spot as our old blue truck … and the red truck is full of class.  I sometimes ride in that truck … and I really like it a lot.

Joseph Has Had A Cardigan Sweater For One Year!

This blog post was originally supposed to be written on December 10, 2018.

One year ago, I purchased a grey cardigan sweater at the now-closed Sears store at South Hills Village.  That store was in the mall for 53 years.  Well, anyway, the sweater is from Simply Styled … and there are four lines that go across the front part of the sweater.  The sweater is full of class … and I like it a lot.  I’ve worn it a few times since I bought it.  I got it as a Christmas present almost one year ago.

Joseph has owned this grey cardigan sweater, which is from Sears, for one year! He bought it at the now-closed Sears store at South Hills Village on December 10, 2017.

Mr. Classy’s failed “stand-ins”

These people didn’t really fail when they were trying out to become one of Mr. Classy’s regular “stand-ins.”  They just turned down their chances to become one of his “stand-ins.”  “Mr. Classy” almost always wears the grey Michael Kors jacket … and, back in 2016, he allowed two people to have the chance to become one of Mr. Classy’s “stand-ins.”

First, in September of 2016, I turned my friend, Joe Cohen, into one of Mr. Classy’s “assistants” while I was at Bee’z Bistro and Pub one evening.  He did a fantastic job as one of his possible “stand-ins,” but he turned down the chance to become Mr. Classy’s regular “stand-in.”

Joseph and DJ Joe wore the grey Michael Kors jackets to Bee’z Bistro and Pub in September of 2016.  He turned down the chance to be one of Mr. Classy’s regular “stand-ins,” but he still did a fantastic job in being his “stand-in” for one evening.

Second, Bryan Gogarty, who worked with me at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx during the 2016 Holiday season, was able to turn into one of Mr. Classy’s possible “stand-ins” while we were in the store’s break room.  He did a fantastic job on the day that we wore the jackets, but he turned down the chance to be one of Mr. Classy’s regular “stand-ins.”

In December of 2016, Joseph and Bryan Gogarty, who worked with him at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx during the 2016 Holiday season, wore the grey Michael Kors jackets in the store’s break room. Bryan did a fantastic job in trying to be one of Mr. Classy’s “stand-ins,” but he turned down that chance.

Both Joe Cohen and Bryan Gogarty did a fantastic job in trying to be Mr. Classy’s regular “stand-ins,” but they turned down their chances to do just that.  Two of my friends have been able to be Mr. Classy’s “stand-ins” over the past two years … and they are Jonathan Reed and Tim Smith.

Will “Mr. Classy” have another “stand-in” in the future?  Maybe.  Stay tuned…

I have owned my grey Michael Kors jacket for three years now!

Three years ago today, I purchased my grey Michael Kors jacket at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx.  I really like this jacket … and I would like to say that this jacket is my favorite jacket ever.  Several days later, I would start turning into “Mr. Classy” whenever I would wear the jacket.  The jacket is full of class, of course, and I will be wearing it many times in 2019, if I’m up to it.

Next time, I will talk about Mr. Classy’s two “stand-ins” … and I will also talk about the people who turned down their chances to be Mr. Classy’s regular “stand-ins.”  They still did a fantastic job, though.

Joseph’s Weekends Are Full Of Class!

IMG_20181118_183221416
On November 18, 2018, Joseph was watching news anchor Paul Martino and weatherman Ray Petelin on KDKA’s Sunday evening newscast.

On November 18, 2018, I was watching KDKA’s Sunday evening newscast for about 20 minutes or so … and I saw two personalities who were classy in several ways.  They are Paul Martino, a reporter and an anchor for KDKA, and Ray Petelin, who is one of their meteorologists.  Before that, he was the weekend evening meteorologist at WTAE for seven years.  Until September of this year, they both aired on two different stations at the same time.  Now I can watch them both on the same station at the same time on Saturday and Sunday evenings.

Seeing those two personalities on KDKA prompted me to write this blog post, which is about seeing TV personalities on weekends.  WPXI’s weekend newscasts are full of classy people.  Kevin Benson, who has been WPXI weekend weatherman for over 30 years, is easily one of the classiest weathermen on TV.  He appears on just about every newscast on weekends.  The station has classy weekend anchors, like Marlisa Goldsmith, who is their weekend evening anchor, and Jennifer Tomazic, who is their weekend morning anchor.  They have classy weekend reporters too, like Erin Clarke and Lori Houy.

Some of WTAE’s classiest people are on their weekend newscasts.  One of them is weekend morning weatherperson Cam Tran … and another one is Brittany Hoke, who is both a reporter and an anchor for the station.

As I said before, Paul Martino and Ray Petelin are two of KDKA’s classiest personalities … and they give KDKA’s weekend evening newscasts some class.  The station’s Saturday morning newscasts have a classy person as its anchor … and her name is Brenda Waters.  I like it whenever she needs her newscasts by saying, “Have a positive day!”

Finally, the cable news channels are full of classy people on weekends.  Some of them include Lynn Smith, who anchors “Weekend Express” on HLN, and Ana Cabrera, who anchors the weekend evening editions of “CNN Newsroom” on CNN.

I love weekends because they are almost always full of classy people to watch on television.

My walking schedule will change in 2019!

As you know, I am no longer taking my evening walks around National Hill.  I was able to walk around the neighborhood on Sunday afternoon since it was warm and sunny outside.  I know it’s early December, but I just had to do that.  Well, anyway, I will be walking around National Hill several times in 2019 … and I will be changing my walking schedule considerably, so that I do not disturb my friends and neighbors too much.

Here’s my walking schedule for 2019 …

Weekdays: Walk anytime between 9:00 in the morning and 12:30 in the afternoon
Weekends: Walk anytime between 7:30 in the morning and 5:00 in the afternoon

I hope you like this new schedule.  I have some terrific friends and neighbors on National Hill … and I’d like to keep it that way for a long time.

I saw some great-looking clouds on a Sunday morning!

At around 7:45 yesterday morning, me and my grandmother were going to Bridgeville T.J. Maxx to do some Christmas shopping … and, as we were riding towards the store, I saw some fantastic-looking clouds in the skies above South Fayette.  It was actually near the Newbury Market Shopping Center, which is currently under construction.

I snapped three photos of those fantastic-looking clouds while I was riding near that shopping center.  The clouds here are grey, dark, gold and white.  I also saw a little golden sky while I was snapping those photos.

How should I use my flat pillow?

One year ago, I stopped sleeping with my flat pillow because it was starting to get very flat.  I would start using My Pillow nightly a few days later.  Well, anyway, my flat pillow has a striped pillowcase on it.  There are red, brown and white stripes on the pillowcase.  I didn’t stop using my flat pillow completely after I took it off my bed one final time.  I would take it in some rooms in my house … and I also put it behind my head whenever I would mediate with the calm.com app.  I would also hug my flat pillow on a daily basis.  With that in mind, let me ask you this question … how should I use my flat pillow?  Leave me a comment below this post, if you have suggestions for me.

Good-bye, Sally Wiggin

Sally Wiggin has retired from WTAE, which is the ABC affiliate in Pittsburgh … and I’d like to tell you about the times that I met this classy personality in person.  She was at WTAE for 38 years.

In the mid 2000s, I bumped into Sally at Kennywood Park, which is located in West Mifflin.  I got her autograph at least once while I was there.  I still have her autograph today.

Now, in the late 2000s, I met Sally at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, which is located in Downtown Pittsburgh … and I had my picture taken with her while I was there.
