On August 24, 2019, this blog, which is called “Joseph Pratt’s Interests And Some Other Things,” turned five years old … and, as you might have guessed, I celebrated the milestone at home that morning … and, that afternoon, I celebrated the milestone at Fairview Park. It was one of the most exciting days of my life. Whenever I went to Fairview Park for three hours on that day, I was able to go to South Fayette’s Community Day … and I bumped into some of my friends while I was there. I also bumped into a local congressman while I was at Fairview Park. I also bumped into a meteorologist from an out-of-town TV station, which is actually quite viewable here in southwestern Allegheny County.
I also saw some fantastic-looking clouds in the skies above Fairview Park while I was at Community Day.
Now, while I was at this event, I bumped into some of my friends … and I was also able to snap a selfie with a few of my friends while I was there. Some of those friends are Dustin Lunn, Michael Meehan and Katie Meehan.
I also bumped into Congressman Conor Lamb, who is from the South Hills.
While I was at this event, I happened to bump into a TV meteorologist. Now, this weatherman is not on one of our TV stations here in Pittsburgh, but this station is actually quite viewable in southwestern Allegheny County. The weatherman’s name is Jeff Oechslein, who is the morning meteorologist at WTOV, which is the NBC affiliate in Steubenville, Ohio. Let me explain this situation to you. More than 15 years ago, I was able to watch WTOV on our TVs at my house before we started to get cable TV on just about every TV set in our house. I would sometimes watch Jeff on the station’s morning newscast … and, in a way, that’s how I recognized this weatherman.
All in all, I had a fantastic day at Fairview Park on August 24, 2019. I would like to say thank you to the people who were able to bump into me at this event back then … and I would like to say all of you for allowing me to have a blog for five years. It has grown gracefully since August of 2014.
