Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For April 2020

Spring is now in full swing … and, before you know it, the month of April will be here.  Then, in just a few weeks, I will be celebrating my 34th birthday.  Just don’t ask me how I’ll be celebrating it just yet.  Fears of the Coronavirus may cause me to celebrate it at home; however, you will have to answer a question about my birthday plans 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 April.  I will give you guys some fantastic posts throughout April … and I hope you guys can check out at least one of these posts whenever you can.

One of my blog posts will be entitled “Brady Has Been With Us For One Year Now!”  Brady first came to our house on March 30, 2019.  It seems like he first came to our house yesterday.  He’s a fantastic dog … and I will talk about his first year with us in a blog post on March 30th.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Happy 3rd Birthday, Ezra!”  Ezra is the son of my cousin, Sarah Smith, and Tim Smith, who is Mr. Classy’s “stand-in.”  I will wish Ezra a happy birthday in a blog post in April.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Jay Papuga Is A Very Classy Friend Of Mine.”  I will talk about my friend, Jay Papuga, in a blog post in April.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “I still have my grey and black Puma jacket two years later!”  I will talk about my grey and black Puma jacket in a blog post in April.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Blog Post Number 1,350 Is About A Classy Jacket!”  In my 1,350th blog post, I will talk about one of my jackets.  I can’t tell you which jacket it will be about, but I’ll give you a hint.  It won’t be about my grey and black Puma jacket.  I will actually talk about it in one of the blog posts that I just mentioned before.  It will be about a jacket that’s just as classy as that Puma jacket is.

I will also be using my blog’s features in April.  Let me tell you how I’ll be using them this time…

I hope you guys will check out at least one of my blog posts in April … and I hope you guys will continue to stay home and stay safe during the Coronavirus Outbreak.  We will do our best to get through it together.  Enjoy your day!

Derek Papakie Turns 30 Today!

Today, I would like to wish my cousin, Derek Papakie, a happy 30th birthday.  Derek is one of the classiest people I have ever known.  He is both a fantastic friend and a terrific cousin … and he has been a terrific father since last July.

Now, in the first half of the 2010s, Derek and I were “twinning” a lot.  We would wear matching T-shirts, matching jackets, matching sandals, matching sports jerseys, matching hats and even matching polo shirts.

So, today, I would like to say “happy 30th birthday” to Derek Papakie.  Happy 30th birthday, Derek!

Brady Is One Year Old Today!

Today is a very special day for one of my relatives.  My bulldog, Brady, who first came to our house in late March, is turning one year old today.  He is getting better with each passing day.  Now, this March, he will celebrate his first year in our house.  I hope you guys still like Brady as much as I do.

Happy birthday, Nicholas Ciesielski!

Today, I would like to wish Nicholas Ciesielski a happy 34th birthday.  He is one of the classiest people I have ever known.  We worked at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx together in the late 2000s and early 2010s … and now he is a councilman in Bridgeville and he works at Railyard Grill and Tap Room in Bridgeville.

Over the years, I have bumped into him at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx, Railyard Grill and Tap Room and Fairview Park.

In April of 2019, me and Nicholas wore our red Boston Terrier sweaters to Railyard Grill and Tap Room.  We both look like “stylish dudes” in them.

Happy 34th birthday, Nicholas Ciesielski!  Keep being classy … and stylish!

Thank you, Scarlett, for allowing me to celebrate your birthday in one form or another for the past five years.

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For October 2019

Three quarters of the year 2019 have almost been completed … and the weather is about to get cooler.  Now, today, I’m going to tell you about the blog posts that I’ll be writing down in October … and, yes, my features will be coming back for the first time in several months.

One of my blog posts will be entitled “Joseph’s Possible Halloween Costumes For 2019.”  I will show you three possible costumes that I might be wearing on Halloween night this year.  I will tell you which costume I’ll be wearing in 2019 in a blog post entitled “Joseph’s Halloween Costume For 2019.”

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Happy 5th Birthday, Scarlett!”  I will wish my cousin, Scarlett, a happy 5th birthday in a blog post.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Joseph’s wisdom teeth have been gone for four years now!”  I will celebrate the event by talking about it in the blog post.

My 1,225th blog post will be about either a person, a place or a thing.  It could be about either anyone or anything.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “I still have my new glasses one year later!”  I will talk about my glasses, which I got at Three Guys Optical last year, in the blog post.  Sadly, Three Guys Optical is no longer in Collier Township.  I will probably get new glasses somewhere else in the future, if I ever have to get them.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “I have owned my Zombie Hunter shirt for one year!”  I will talk about my Zombie Hunter shirt, which I purchases at Heidelberg Wal-Mart nearly one year ago, in the blog post.

My blog’s features are also back for the first time in several months.  Let me tell you how I’ll be using them this time.

Happy 45th Birthday, Michael Spicer!

During the second half of my blog’s fifth year, I’m going to give you some chances to revisit some of my past blog posts … and throughout the month of July, I will give you chances to revisit some of my posts from my blog’s fifth year. Today, before I begin to celebrate my blog’s fifth anniversary for a whole month, I’m going to let you revisit a post that I wrote down this past Friday … and it is entitled “Happy 45th Birthday, Michael Spicer!”

This past Friday, Michael Spicer, who is both my friend and my neighbor, turned 45 years old. Michael has been a friend of mine since 2012 … and he has been one of my neighbors on National Hill for more than 10 years now. Over the past 2 years or so, we were both able to wear the grey Superman shirts, the blue Dragon Ball Z T-shirts and the grey Zombie Hunter shirts outdoors. Michael has turned me into a terrific neighbor and a better friend over the years … and, as I was getting ready to start wrapping up my blog’s fifth year, I figured that Michael Spicer’s 45th birthday would be the perfect subject for the blog post that would wrap up my blog’s fifth year.

Now, tomorrow, I will get you guys ready to start celebrating my blog’s fifth anniversary, which will occur on August 24th … and, beginning on Wednesday, I will be spending an entire month celebrating my blog’s fifth anniversary by giving you some interesting statistics about my blog … and some of them may surprise you.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around July 22nd in previous years …

Blog Post Number 1,125

Today, I am writing my 1,125th blog post down … and it will be about my Henley shirt, which is from Railyard Grill and Tap Room.  This is probably one of the classiest shirts that I have ever owned.  I got the shirt last month while I was at the restaurant.  The Henley shirt is both light grey and dark grey … and the sleeves are 3/4 inches long.  There are three buttons on the Henley shirt … and “Railyard Tap Room” appears on the front part of the Henley shirt.  The shirt can be worn with jeans, shorts or dress pants.  You can either wear the Henley shirt by itself or you can wear it over a T-shirt.

This is Joseph’s Henley shirt, which is from Railyard Grill and Tap Room in Bridgeville. The shirt is both light grey and dark grey, the sleeves are 3/4 inches long and there are three buttons on the shirt. The restaurant’s name is on the front part of the shirt.

I bought the shirt for 25 dollars while I was at the restaurant last month.

IMG_20190501_121732603
The Henley shirt is 25 dollars at Railyard Grill and Tap Room. It’s a classy shirt.

Just moments after I bought the shirt back on April 7, 2019, I tired it on … and it would fit me perfectly.  I snapped a selfie just minutes after I bought the shirt … and I snapped two photos of myself wearing the shirt four days later.

When I celebrated my 33rd birthday on May 1st, I wore my Henley shirt since I would be going to the Railyard Grill and Tap Room for lunch on that day.  I wore my shirt both at home and at the restaurant on that day.  Now, while I was at the restaurant, I bumped into Nicholas Ciesielski, who wore his Henley shirt to the restaurant then.  He was scheduled to come in later in the afternoon, but he was nice enough to stop in early to wish me a happy birthday and to appear in a selfie with me.

On May 21, 2019, I went to the Railyard Grill and Tap Room for lunch … and, this time, I bumped into Cody Ciesielski while I was there.  Cody worked with me several years ago at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx and he’s a terrific friend of mine.  Cody and I both had our Henley shirts on while we were at the restaurant.

As you can see here, I like my Henley shirt, which is from Railyard Grill and Tap Room, a lot … and I hope you guys do also.  It’s one of the classiest shirts I have ever owned.  Please buy yourselves this shirt if you go to that restaurant.

Next time, I will give you a chance to revisit a blog post from my blog’s third year … and it’s from the Spring of 2017.  I will give you a hint … I will talk about a shirt, which is from another classy business.  The business is also in Bridgeville.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around May 21st in previous years …

We have the exact same birthday!

During the second half of my blog’s fifth year, I will give you a chance to revisit some of my past blog posts. Throughout May, I will give you a chance to revisit some of my blog posts from my blog’s third year.

Today, I’m going to let you revisit a blog post from December of 2016 … and it’s entitled “We have the exact same birthday!” In it, I was talking about the time that I bumped into my friend, Ryan Wolf. We both went to South Fayette High School in the 2000s … and we are both terrific friends. Five days before I wrote this blog post, I bumped into Ryan on a Friday evening at the Giant Eagle store in South Fayette. They were having a concert with the Bridgeville Brass … and I was able to hear them play Christmas songs while I bumped into Ryan. Now, in this post, I also said that me and Ryan both have the exact same birthday, which is May 1, 1986. Of course, as friends, we have at least one thing in common … and having the exact same birthday is something that we both have in common.

Since I wrote this blog post, Ryan no longer resides near South Fayette. He lives near Wheeling, West Virginia … and he does visit the Bridgeville area occasionally. We both keep in touch with each other in many different ways.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around May 14th in previous years …

Joseph Pratt's Interests And Some Other Things

img_20161223_175030 On the evening of December 23, 2016, I bumped into Ryan Wolf, who is both my friend and my classmate. Believe it or not, we both have the same exact birthday, which is May 1, 1986.

On December 23, 2016, I bumped into Ryan Wolf for the first time in over two years.  I actually bumped into him at our 10-year class reunion back in the summer of 2014.

We are both friends and classmates … and, believe it or not, we were both born on the exact same day, which is May 1, 1986.  What are the odds of having two friends being born on the same day?  I don’t really know.  Ryan is one of the coolest and classiest friends that I have ever known.
