Joseph Has A New Motorola Edge Smartphone!

This past Thursday morning, after more than 3 years, my first Motorola smartphone stopped working. At some point between 8:30 and 9:00 that morning, after my smartphone went off on its own, it started a “boot loop” that would not stop. It would show the blue Motorola screen repeatedly for hours … and sometimes, it would say “Motorola” or “Hello Moto” or something like that … and then it would show several colors, say “hello” and then show the Verizon logo on a white background with several circles, which are in different colors, under the Verizon logo. When that phone would not work again, I had to say good-bye to it after 3 years, 2 months and 19 days. When you put it into perspective, I actually owned it five days longer than I owned my LG smartphone, which I owned for 3 years, 2 months and 14 days. Maybe it was time for me to get a new phone after all, so, without further ado, I would like you to see my new Motorola Edge smartphone. I really like this phone … and I hope you guys do also.

This is my new Motorola Edge smartphone, which I received on the afternoon of March 4, 2021, just hours after my first Motorola smartphone stopped working after more than 3 years.

Joseph’s First Motorola Smartphone (December 13, 2017-March 4, 2021)

On December 13, 2017, I purchased a new smartphone from Motorola. I was prompted to buy the new smartphone after my LG smartphone started freezing up just a few hours earlier. I had owned the phone on the left for just over three years.

Joseph’s Moment Of Peace: Watching old commercials on DVD

Today, I would like to tell you about an activity that relaxes me in a big way whenever I’m in the “computer room.” I like to watch some old commercials on some DVDs.

I have a three-disc set of old commercials called “1001 Classic Commercials, which can be found on three DVDs. The DVD sets shows you old commercials for various products, some of which are still being made today. In fact, some of those products are still being made by the same companies that made the products that were being advertised at least 50 years ago! It’s always fun to see old commercials on the DVDs … and they relax me if I’m having a down day. I could probably watch them all day, if I had a chance to do so.

I also have another DVD with Classic Commercials on it. It’s called “Classic Commercials” … and I sometimes watch it whenever I can.

I have some classic commercials on DVD. One is a three-disc set called “1001 Classic Commercials” … and one is a DVD called “Classic Commercials.”

This blog post is brought to you by … Joseph Pratt himself.

Joseph And Brady Enjoyed Seeing The Snow On A Warm Day Recently!

Nearly a week ago, we had a 60-degree day on National Hill … and, believe it or not, we still had a lot of snow at our house on that day. It was this past Wednesday, February the 24th. It would hit 63 degrees that afternoon.

Now, that morning, Brady and I were able to go outdoors together for the first time in quite a while … and we were able to see the snow that was still at our house. Can you tell that Brady likes the snow a lot?

On February 24, 2021, me and Brady were able to go outdoors and see the snow that was still left at our house. Brady likes the snow. It would be in the 60s later that day.
On February 24, 2021, we had a lot of snow at our house. Temperatures would go up into the 60s later that day.

The snow that you saw in these two photos have since been melted … and we’re starting to see the grass once again. Hopefully we won’t see too much more snow for a while yet. We did have a little bit of snow on our property this morning, but it may have melted quickly not long after that.

Joseph is still “super” four years later!

Four years ago, I got my grey Superman T-shirt … and I have worn it many times over the past four years. I have worn the shirt with khaki shorts, blue jeans, white jeans, cargo shorts and dress pants. Will I wear it with sweatpants or gym clothes? Probably not, but you never know.

I have owned my grey Superman T-shirt for four years. The shirt is very classy … and I have worn it with blue jeans, white jeans, khaki pants, khaki shorts and even cargo shorts.

My neighbor and friend, Michael Spicer, also has this shirt … and me and him have worn it many times over the past four years.

For more than 10 years, Michael and I have been neighbors on National Hill … and, for six of those years, we have been real-life friends. We are both “super friends” and “super neighbors” … and we have the grey Superman shirts to prove it. The shirts are now the official shirts of our friendship. I have now dubbed them our “friendship shirts.”

Me and my uncle, Thomas Papakie, wore the grey Superman T-shirts in December of 2018.

On December 22, 2018, me and Thomas Papakie wore the grey Superman shirts with class. In this case, he’s a “super” uncle.

I still like my grey Superman T-shirt a lot … and I hope you guys still like it also.

I really like this grey Superman shirt a lot. I don’t like Superman a lot, but I like Superman in some ways. I also like this shirt a lot. A relative got it for me on February 24, 2017.

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For March 2021

March is almost here … and it will start to look and feel like Spring again very soon. The road to the 10,000-views mark on my blog is not over yet, but it can end at any time. We are more than halfway down that road … and, the way that my blog has been getting good numbers lately, it wouldn’t surprise me if my blog hit the 10,000-views mark before the end of March. If it does occur, I will talk about the event in a blog post in April. Now, today, I’m going to tell you about some of the blog posts that I’ll be writing down in March … and I’m also bringing my features back in March. I’m sure at least one of these posts will catch your eye … and I already wrote one of these blog posts down. See if you can guess which one of these blog posts has been written already.

Joseph Is Ready For Spring!

Yesterday, we had a taste of Spring on National Hill, but we still had a lot of snow at our house! Well, since it was close to 60 degrees yesterday, I wanted to put my shorts to use for the first time in quite a while.

While I was wearing shorts indoors yesterday morning, I wanted to see if my grey Old Navy sweater and my grey and black Penguins jacket would go nicely with shorts … and, boy, was I right about that! Both of those items go nicely with shorts.

First, I wore my grey Old Navy sweater with my tan-colored Dockers khaki shorts.

On February 24, 2021, I wore my grey Old Navy sweater with my tan-colored Dockers khaki shorts.

Finally, I wore my grey and black Penguins jacket with my light wash Levi’s denim shorts.

On February 24, 2021, I wore my grey and black Penguins jacket with my light wash Levi’s denim shorts.

As you can see here, I am ready for Spring … and I can’t wait to start wearing shorts again in the near future. Who knows? Maybe I will wear shorts with either my grey Old Navy sweater or my grey and black Penguins jacket.

Joseph May Watch “NewsNation” In The Future

Since September, WGN America has aired a program called “NewsNation” for six hours. It airs from 8:00 in the evening until 2:00 the following morning, seven days a week. Three of those hours are live … and then those same three hours will be repeated again. If I’m lucky, I may be able to watch portions of the programs before I go to sleep every night. “NewsNation” is a fantastic program, to say the least.

Beginning this Monday, WGN America will become NewsNation, which is named after the news program … and the show will begin at 6:00 on weekday evenings instead of 8:00. During the week, the show will be ending at 3:00 the following morning instead of 2:00. On weekends, it will start at 7:00 in the evening and it will end at 1:00 the following morning. Now, since “NewsNation” will begin at 6 during the week, I may consider watching the first hour of the show in my “computer room” … and I will watch any portions of the program in the living room before I go to bed, if necessary.

I won’t be watching “NewsNation” in my “computer room” on weekends since I’m usually not in that room after 7:00 on weekends. I will probably just watch “NewsNation” in my “computer room” during the week. Believe it or not, several programs will be part of “NewsNation” itself … and, hopefully, I’ll like them whenever they start this Monday. So far, from what I’ve seen and heard for nearly six months, “NewsNation” is a fantastic program to watch before going to sleep. I will start watching it myself this Monday.

Over the weekend, I received a very classy hoodie from Under Armour. The grey hoodie is, indeed, full of class … and it can be worn with blue jeans, khaki pants, khaki shorts and even cargo shorts.

On February 21, 2021, I received a classy grey hoodie from Under Armour. The hoodie goes nicely with blue jeans, khaki pants, khaki shorts and even cargo shorts.

Just over two hours after I received my hoodie yesterday afternoon, I was able to wear the hoodie for a while … and, whenever I snapped the two photos that I’m about to show you yesterday, I was able to wear them with my light wash Levi’s jeans.

On February 21, 2021, I wore my new grey Under Armour hoodie with my light wash Levi’s jeans.
Here’s a close-up shot of my new grey Under Armour hoodie.

I hope you guys like this grey Under Armour hoodie as much as I do. I will do my best to wear this hoodie as often as I can in 2021. You never know what I may wear it with next. I may wear it with either jeans, khakis or even shorts. The possibilities are almost endless!

I have owned a classy Tony Hawk T-shirt for five years!

For almost five years, I have owned a classy Tony Hawk T-shirt. On February 22, 2016, I stated in a blog post, which is entitled “My new Tony Hawk T-shirt,” that I would wear the shirt many times in the future. Well, I haven’t worn it as many times as I have wanted to, but, maybe, I can try to do so in 2021. In fact, I am wearing this T-shirt today. I still like this shirt a lot … and I hope you guys do also.
