Joseph’s Moment Of Peace: Joseph’s Relax And Sleep App

Today, I would like to talk about an app that I use on my smartphone on a daily basis … and it’s called the “Relax And Sleep” app.  There are all kinds of soothing sounds on the app … and you can use it for a certain amount of time.  In fact, you can have one or multiple timers on it; however, you can use just one timer at a time.

I love this app a lot … and, if you like it a lot, you can download the app for free.  It’s in the Google Play store … and you can find it in your app store, if you don’t use the Google Play store.  The app relaxes me in a big way … and I use it several times a day.  I also use it for one hour and 23 minutes every night as I prepare to go to sleep.  I urge all of you guys to download the “Relax And Sleep” app someday.  It has a little lamb on the app.  It will relax you guys in a big way.

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

“Mr. Classy” Comes To Fruition!

During the second half of my blog’s fifth year, I’m going to give you a chance to revisit some of my past blog posts … and, today, I’m going to give you a chance to revisit two blog posts from my blog’s second year.

I’m going to show you a blog post from January of 2016 and I will also show you a link to a blog post from December of 2015. In the blog posts, I’m going to talk about my grey Michael Kors jacket, which I have owned since December of 2015. In a way, you’re going to hear the story about how “Mr. Classy” came to fruition. It actually started just days after I bought my grey MK jacket at T.J. Maxx. Whenever we were about to start 2016 together, I decided to call myself “Mr. Classy” whenever I would wear the grey Michael Kors jacket. A friend of mine inspired me to become a classy person at around that time … and, after seeing my friend begin to call myself “Mr. Grey” occasionally, I decided that I would call myself “Mr. Classy” whenever I would wear the grey MK jacket. I gave myself that nickname because the grey MK jacket turns me into a classy person … and the name “Mr. Classy” sort of stuck with me. In the Fall of 2017, “Mr. Classy” got a second jacket, which was the black Vintage Leather jacket. The jacket is from Kohl’s. Like the grey MK jacket, the black leather jacket, which is from Vintage Leather, is very classy as well. Now, “Mr. Classy” has twice as much class as he once had. In just a matter of weeks, “Mr. Classy” will be able to add a half-zip top to his wardrobe, so he will soon have three times as much class as he once has!

As you can see here, “Mr. Classy” has developed a huge following, both on this blog and on Social Media. Will “Mr. Classy” wear the grey MK jacket or the black leather jacket from Vintage Leather again next time? Only time will tell. He may wear the new half-zip top in a few weeks!

I’m going to show you the link to the blog post, which is about me buying my grey Michael Kors jacket … https://pghjoseph.wordpress.com/2015/12/12/my-new-grey-michael-kors-jacket/

IMG_20160106_044647 I like this grey Michael Kors jacket a lot … and whenever I wear it, I become “Mr. Classy.”

As you probably know, I really like my grey Michael Kors jacket a lot!  It’s one of my favorite jackets ever!  It makes me feel classy, in my opinion.  So, therefore, I’ve decided to become “Mr. Classy” whenever I wear this jacket.  I won’t use that nickname regularly, but I will use it whenever I wear my grey M.K. jacket.  A friend of mine sort of inspired me to become a classy person … and I have been a classy person ever since.  This friend of mine uses the name “Mr. Grey” … and it sort of inspired me to come up with a similar nickname for myself … and that’s how I came up with the nickname “Mr. Classy.”  As I finish writing today’s blog post, I would like to…

Joseph’s 1,100th Blog Post

Today, I’m writing my 1,100th blog post … and I would like to talk about a classy friend of mine in this post.  His name is Nicholas Ciesielski.  I have been a friend of his for at least a decade or so.  He worked with me at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx a few years ago.  He’s one of the classiest people I have ever known.

Nicholas now works at the Railyard Grill and Tap Room in Bridgeville … and I bumped into him there three times since the place opened back in the Fall of 2016.  We had our Penguins jerseys on when we bumped into each other there the first two times … and, when we bumped into each other there just last Sunday, we had our Boston Terrier sweaters on for a few short minutes.

When I bumped into Nicholas at that restaurant in November of 2016 and in May of 2017, we wore our Penguins jerseys.

Now, when I bumped into Nicholas at the restaurant earlier this month, we were able to wear our Boston Terrier sweaters for a few short minutes.

IMG_20190407_144711901
On April 7, 2019, me and Nicholas Ciesielski, who is one of the managers at Railyard Grill And Tap Room, were able to wear our Boston Terrier sweaters with class for a few short minutes. Nicholas worked with me at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx several years ago … and I have met him at this place two other times in the past.

In August of 2018, I bumped into Nicholas at South Fayette’s Community Day, which was in Fairview Park.

I bumped into Nicholas Ciesielski at South Fayette’s Community Day on August 25, 2018.

As you can see here in these photos, Nicholas is one of the classiest friends I have ever known … and, now, at times, we are able to wear our Boston Terrier sweaters with class.  Who knows?  Maybe I’ll bump into him at T.J. Maxx in Bridgeville someday.

Thank you, Nicholas, for allowing me to be one of your friends for several years.  Keep being classy, my friend!

Next time, I will give you a chance to revisit two of my blog posts from my blog’s second year … and one of my posts will be about “Mr. Classy.”  Any guesses?

Happy second birthday, Ezra!

My new Michael Kors jacket

During the second half of my blog’s fifth year, I will give you a chance to revisit some of my past blog posts. Today, I’m giving you a chance to revisit one of my blog posts from my blog’s second year.

In September of 2015, I wrote a blog post entitled “My new Michael Kors jacket.” Now, just one day before I wrote this blog post, I purchased the black Michael Kors jacket at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx. I also said that I bought the jacket after I saw two of my co-workers wearing a similar jacket at T.J. Maxx. I also talked about it a little bit in the post. I have worn the jacket several times since I bought it … and it’s one of the classiest jackets in my wardrobe. The jacket goes nicely with dark wash jeans and some classy dress pants … and I also incorporated this jacket into a Halloween costume back in 2016. I may have said “Can you hear that?” at least once on Halloween night back then. Also…at various times over the past 3 1/2 years or so, I have worn my jacket in my photos and videos as we were preparing to turn our clocks ahead or backwards by one hour in honor of Daylight Savings Time. The jacket is still fantastic, more than three years after I first purchased it. The jacket is full of class!

Joseph Pratt's Interests And Some Other Things

Yesterday afternoon, I purchased a new Michael Kors jacket at T.J. Maxx.  I really like this jacket a lot … and I plan on wearing it many times this fall.  Earlier this year, I saw two of my former co-workers wearing similar jackets to T.J. Maxx … and I really liked those jackets a lot.  Now I have a jacket like it myself.

On September 25, 2015, I purchased a new Michael Kors jacket at T.J. Maxx. On September 25, 2015, I purchased a new Michael Kors jacket at T.J. Maxx.

Let’s Talk About A Past Blog Post: Joseph’s new Puma jacket is full of class and swag!

In April of 2018, I wrote a blog post entitled “Joseph’s new Puma jacket is full of class and swag!”  I wrote the blog post just days after I got my jacket in the mail.  In the post, I described the jacket in detail … and I also said that wearing it with jeans or dress pants will give you class … and I also said that wearing it with shots will give you swag.  I was inspired to write this blog post because I wanted to show off one of the classiest jackets in my wardrobe … and it still gives me class and swag one year after I got it.

Joseph Gets “Railed” With Some Friends

If you’re wondering why the title of today’s blog post is “Joseph Gets ‘Railed’ With Some Friends,” well, let me explain it in details.  This past Sunday afternoon, I went to the Railyard Grill and Tap Room in Bridgeville for about two hours … and they say “Get Railed” at this place.  That’s why the title of this blog post is “Joseph Gets ‘Railed’ With Some Friends.”

Well, anyway, I’d like to talk about my recent trip to the restaurant.  I spent about two hours at the Railyard Grill and Tap Room on Sunday afternoon … and I wanted to see The Bill Ali Band while I was there.  There was a lot of people at this place at that time, but, nonetheless, I still enjoyed myself.  I was able to hear the music … and, whenever I was able to do so, I was able to see the band play the music as well.  The Bill Ali Band is fantastic … and I will do my best to see another one of their shows in the future.

I wore my Boston Terrier sweater to the restaurant; however, I didn’t wear it the whole time because it was warm outdoors that afternoon.  I wore my purple V-neck T-shirt underneath of my sweater.

On April 7, 2019, I went to the Railyard Grill and Tap Room in Bridgeville for about two hours … and I wore my Boston Terrier sweater while I was there. I didn’t wear my sweater the whole time while I was there. I had my purple V-neck T-shirt on underneath of the sweater.

I also got to meet Bill Ali, who is the leader of The Bill Ali Band.  I am truly a fan of this work, even though if I’m not able to see the band in person on a regular basis.

On April 7, 2019, I met Bill Ali, who is the leader of The Bill Ali Band. He and his band put on a fantastic show at the Railyard Grill And Tap Room that afternoon.

Earlier that day, I said some rather nice things about The Railyard Grill And Tap Room on Twitter … and my tweets turned up on one of the boards, which is inside of the restaurant.  You can tell that I’m very loyal to this place … and I will continue to be loyal to it for years to come.

While I was there, I bumped into Nicholas Ciesielski, who is one of the managers of the Railyard Grill And Tap Room.  I have bumped into him at this place two other times before that … and, back in the late 2000s and early 2010s, I worked with him at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx.  We have been friends for at least a decade now.  Me and him were able to wear our Boston Terrier sweaters for a few short minutes while we were there.

Now, I also promised myself that I would get myself a Railyard Grill And Tap Room shirt whenever they would sell them to customers … and I kept my promise.  Just before I left the restaurant, I was able to buy myself a Henley shirt.  The sleeves on it are 3/4 inches long.  After I was able to buy it, I tried it on and it fitted me perfectly.  I plan on wearing the shirt on Thursday … and I will talk about it in a blog post later this month.

As you can see here, I like the Railyard Grill And Tap Room a lot … and now I have a Railyard Grill And Tap Room shirt.  I will try to “Get Railed” there again at some point in the future and I will wear my shirt while I’m there.

“X” Marks The Spot … Sort Of!

During the second half of my blog’s fifth year, I am giving you a chance to revisit some of my past blog posts … and, during the month of April, I am giving you the chance to revisit some of my blog posts from my blog’s second year.

Today, I am giving you the chance to revisit my first blog post from my blog’s second year. I wrote this blog post back in August of 2015. In it, I talk about the “Xs” that were in our basement’s ceiling … and I snapped a photo of one of the “Xs.” The photo is possibly one of the scariest photos that I have ever taken. Nearly four years after I wrote this blog post down, the “Xs” are still hard to look it, but it all depends on how and when you look at them. If I look at them with enough light, the “Xs” don’t look so scary, but if I look at them in the dark, then they look somewhat scary.

Now, for two straight days after that, I kept the letter theme going by talking about the letters “Z” and “A.” I talked about the “Zs” that are on our cabinet, which is located next to our shower stall, and I also talked about the “As” that are in our backyard. We have some rather unique things in and around our house!

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around April 8th in previous years …

This is one of the "Xs" that we have in our basement's ceiling. This is one of the “Xs” that we have in our basement’s ceiling.

I have taken some somewhat scary pictures over the years, but this picture may be the scariest one that I have ever taken.

As we begin the second year of my blog together, I’d like to talk about the “Xs” that we have in our basement’s ceiling.  They scare me a little bit, especially whenever I see them in the dark.  So, I guess you could say that “X” marks the spot in our basement’s ceiling … sort of.    Even though they are nicely made, in my opinion, they’re almost hard to look at.

Joseph’s Gray And Black Puma Jacket Still Gives Him Swag One Year Later!

For just over one year, I have owned a jacket that has given me both class and swag … and that would be my gray and black jacket, which is from Puma.  It can be worn in several ways.  You can wear it with either jeans, dress pants or shorts … and I’ve worn it with all three of those things over the past year.  I like this jacket a lot … and I will wear it as often as i can over the next year.  May it give me class and swag for many more years to come.

Over the past year, I have been able to wear the gray and black Puma jacket with class.

I hope you like this jacket as much as I do.  It is one of the classiest jackets I have ever owned.

This is Joseph’s new grey and black Puma jacket. The Puma logo is visible on the front part of the jacket … and there are two black lines on the jacket. The lines are on the jacket’s sleeves. They start at the shoulders and they end at the elbows.
