Goodbye, Pauline Danesky

This week, I lost one of my relatives. My aunt, Pauline Danesky, who was my neighbor for several years, passed away on Tuesday at the age of 88. I will miss her a lot … and I will remember her for a very long time.

My aunt, Pauline Danesky, is sitting near our house in this picture, which was taken back in 1957.

What will Joseph talk about in February?

As you know, February is a short month … and, in February, I will be giving my features another break … and I will bring them back in March.

I have now owned my grey Bauer sweatpants for one year now … and I will talk about the event in a blog post.  It will be called “Spreading the ‘Bauer Power’ one year later.”  I purchased those pants at a local Pure Hockey store on February 1, 2016.  I really like them … and I wear them whenever I can.  They’re very comfortable.

Also, it has been two years since my bulldog, Piglet, passed away.  She was 12 years old whenever she passed away on February 12, 2015.  I will talk about the event in a blog post, which will be called “Remembering Piglet Two Years Later.”

Also, “Mr. Classy” might be going on the road in February.  I will mention it in a blog post, which will be called “‘Mr. Classy’ is on the road!”  I can’t tell you where “Mr. Classy” will be going to here, but I can assure you that he’ll be at a great place here.

Of course, I will also write down some interesting blog posts in February … and, in March, I will write my 600th blog post on my blog.

Enjoy your day!

Joseph’s Moment Of Peace: Joseph’s New Hourglass

I received a new hourglass for Christmas this year.

This is a special hourglass.  When the sand moves through it, it creates a cool design on the bottom half of the hourglass.  It last for about a minute or so.  I’m gonna try not to use it too much because I don’t want to break it.  I like to look at it … and it relaxes me quite a bit.  I like the hourglass, though.

I’d like to show you a picture of my hourglass.

Celebrating 10 years of friendship

Ten years ago today, I became friends with one of the coolest and classiest people that I have ever known … and his name is Justin McKean.  On that day, he was one of the three substitute teachers that I had while I went to South Fayette High School on that day.

Since January 23, 2007, Justin has been my teacher, my friend and also my fellow blogger … and we still keep in touch with each other regularly.  We also bump into each other once or twice a year at local festivals.

Back in July of 2016, I bumped into Justin at McSummerfest … and we took a selfie while we were there one evening.

Joseph is rooting for two teams again!

Later today, the Penguins and the Steelers will both be playing their games … and, as you might have guessed, I will be rooting for both of those teams later today.

Today, I’m wearing my Penguins jersey over my yellow Steelers T-shirt.

I can see all kinds of clouds here!

Yesterday, the temperatures were in the 60s … and, since it was warm outside, I was able to take my first evening walk of 2017 late yesterday afternoon.  Before I took my walk, I took some pictures of the clouds that were in the skies above Cuddy.  I saw a little bit of everything in the sky yesterday.

I saw all kinds of clouds in this picture. The sky was blue whenever I took the picture on January 17, 2017 … and the clouds here are white, dark and grey. How exciting is this?!

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been saving up my money in a rather interesting way. I’m gonna buy myself a new mattress in a few short weeks. I remember buying my current mattress at Boscov’s a few years ago, so I think I’ve owned my current mattress for over eight years now.

Let me ask you guys a poll question today. What kind of mattress should I buy for myself in 2017?
