I saw my friends and a sunset at Oakdale’s parade this year!

On July 29, 2016, I went to Oakdale’s parade with a couple of my relatives … and while I was there, I saw some of my friends there and I saw a sunset here I was there.  Of course, I saw the parade itself while I was there and I also saw a band play some wonderful songs while I was at the parade.

So, today, I’m gonna let the pictures do the talking!

First, I’d like to show you a picture of me enjoying the parade in Oakdale.  We were at the parade for nearly 3 hours this past Friday evening.

At around 9:00 on July 29th, I saw an exciting sunset while I was at Oakdale’s parade.  I was also hearing a band play some great songs while I was watching the sunset.

I bumped into Lori Dolan while I was at Oakdale’s parade on the 29th.  I have known Lori for several years now.

I also bumped into Sarah Klink at Oakdale’s parade.  Sarah is one of my friends and she’s also one of my classmates.  I’ve known her for a long time also.

I also bumped into Robert Kurta at this event.  I actually became friends with Robert last year.  Whenever I would see him outdoors, he would wear his police officer’s uniform, but while he was at the event, he was wearing something different.  It was the first time that I didn’t see him wearing the uniform … while I was bumping into him in person.

I just wanted to say thank you to the people who took the time to bump into me while I was at Oakdale’s parade.  These are some of the greatest friends that I have ever had.

Another bright sunset

IMG_20160726_205138
On July 26, 2016, I saw a very bright sunset before I went to sleep. It was mostly pink and orange that night.

On July 26, 2016, I was getting ready to go to sleep and I was looking out my bedroom window like I always do.  While I was doing that that night, I saw a very bright sunset in the skies over Cuddy.  This time, the sunset was mostly pink and orange … and I did see a few clouds in the sky at that time.  It was one of the brightest sunsets that I had ever seen at that time.

Joseph’s Moment Of Peace: Our Tree House

Today, I’m going to add a new regular feature to my blog … and the name of that feature is – drum roll, please – “Joseph’s Moment Of Peace.”  That means that, starting today, my blog will not have four regular features instead of three.  In this new feature, I will show you a peaceful image … and I will tell you why the certain image is peaceful to me.

This is our tree house. This tree house is located near our house. I don’t like to go up to the top of the tree house myself, but I do like to look at it whenever I can.

Today, I’m going to talk about our tree house.  It’s one of the most peaceful things that I have ever seen in my life.  It’s peaceful to me because I like to see something in our yard that relaxes me whenever I’m feeling stressed out about something.

I have owned this H.P. computer for one year now!

One year ago today, I started to use this Hewlett-Packard Computer for the first time … and one day earlier, I purchased the computer at a local Best Buy store.  Before that, I had a computer from eMachines … and I had owned that computer for six years.  I really like my H.P. computer a lot … and I use it almost every day.  Of course, I will give it a break whenever I have to.  I hope I will be able to use it for many more years.

My six foam NHL balls

IMG_20160725_124908
Several weeks ago, I purchased these six little foam NHL balls at the Pure Hockey store in Bridgeville. I got them as birthday presents back in May. I have seldom used these balls in any form … until today. I will try to play with them in the future.

Several weeks ago, I received these six foam NHL balls for my birthday.  Up until today, I have rarely used them for anything, but I did make a promise earlier today.  I promised myself that I would play with these balls in one form or another as often as I can.  I like these balls a lot.

Two balls are orange, one ball is blue, one ball is green, one ball is yellow and one ball is red.

I hope you like them as much as I do.

A “heavenly” cloud

IMG_20160719_171139
I was taking my walk on July 19, 2016 … and while I was doing that, I saw this “heavenly” cloud in the sky. The cloud was dark and the sun’s rays were coming out of the cloud, so obviously, the sun was hiding behind the cloud. The cloud looked like a “heavenly” cloud to me.

This Tuesday, while I was taking my evening walk, I saw a “heavenly” cloud in the sky.  The cloud here was dark and the sun’s rays were coming out of the cloud.  Of course, the sun was hiding behind the cloud here.  It was an exciting thing for me to see!

Let’s Talk About A Past Blog Post: How I got Lyme disease

Last month, I wrote an interesting blog post entitled “How I got Lyme disease.”  In it, I told you exactly how I ended up getting Lyme disease in the first place.  Also … I told you about a tick that bit me while I was on vacation at my “undisclosed location” back in late May.

I was inspired to write this blog post because I needed to tell you guys about a serious thing that I went through last month.

Here’s a link to that blog post now …

There’s a small dark cloud inside of a big white cloud!

IMG_20160716_191453
On July 16, 2016, I went to the Sts. Simon And Jude Festival in Scott Township … and while I was there that evening, I saw a small dark cloud inside of a big white cloud. I’m pointing to the small dark cloud in this picture.

On July 16, 2016, I went to the Sts. Simon And Jude Festival in Scott Township with one of my relatives.  I saw some interesting things there and I bumped into some familiar faces while I was there.  Of course, I was watching the clouds above the skies of the festival’s site … and while I was walking through the festival that evening, I saw a small dark cloud inside of a big white cloud.  It was exciting and it was breathtaking.

I have been on Facebook for 5 years now!

On July 18, 2011, I became a Facebook user for the first time ever.  Before that, I was on MySpace … and, yes, I had several MySpace friends.  While I liked MySpace a lot, I wanted to join Facebook someday.  Well, back in the Summer of 2011, I did just that.  I started a Facebook account.  Now, in order to do that, I had to cancel my MySpace account before I could start my Facebook account.

Since then, I have had over 450 Facebook friends.  Some of them have come and gone over the years, but most of them have been my friends for at least a day or so … and only a couple of them have been my Facebook friends since the day I became a Facebook user five years ago today.  For safety reasons, I won’t tell you who those friends are, but let’s just say that these people have been my friends in one form or another for a long time.
