Happy birthday, Justin McKean!

Today, I would like to wish a very classy person named Justin McKean a happy birthday today.  On January 23, 2007, he was one of three substitute teachers that I had while I was finishing up my time at South Fayette High School … and we have been terrific friends for 13 years now.  He is one of the classiest people I have ever known … and he is able to be a casual and a classy dresser as well.  I sometimes get ideas for my wardrobe from him.  He is casual and classy.  I have bumped into Justin several times over the past 13 years … and, in July of 2016, I was able to snap a selfie with Justin at McSummerfest … and, that evening, we both had our white 2016 Stanley Cup Champions T-shirts on.

So, again, I would like to say that Justin McKean is a very classy friend … and I would like to thank him for allowing me to talk about him in some of my blog posts over the past 5 1/2 years, including my 1,000th blog post.  Happy birthday, Justin!

Joseph’s new Puma jacket is full of class and swag!

During the second half of my blog’s fifth year, I will give you chances to revisit some of my past blog posts … and, throughout the month of June, I will give you chances to revisit some of my blog posts from my blog’s fourth year. Today, I’m gonna let you revisit a blog post from April of 2018 … and it is entitled “Joseph’s new Puma jacket is full of class and swag!”

In April of 2018, I ordered my grey and black Puma jacket on eBay and I was able to get it as an early birthday present back then. Since then, I have been able to wear it with class several times. I like the jacket so much I always keep it on my computer room’s chair, just in case I want to give myself extra class during the day. Several days earlier, I talked about this jacket briefly in a blog post, but I wanted to go into talk about the jacket in detail in this blog post. Since I got this jacket, I have been able to talk some of my friends into buying it online as well … and they like it as much as I do. The jacket is very classy … and it can be worn with cargo shorts, jeans and even dress pants. I will continue to wear this jacket in the future.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around June 20th in previous years …

Joseph Pratt's Interests And Some Other Things

Nearly two weeks ago, I got a grey and black Puma jacket in the mail.  You might call it an early birthday present of sorts.  Now, I will be buying my birthday gifts later this week, but, today, I would like to talk about one of the presents that I was able to get before my birthday.  That would be my grey and black Puma jacket.  I talked about it briefly in a blog post earlier this month, but I wanted to talk about it in greater detail in this blog post.

IMG_20180416_094542021 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.

As you probably know, my new jacket is full…

Let’s Talk About A Past Blog Post: Does this dude have class or what?

In December of 2016, I wrote a blog post entitled “Does this dude have class or what?”  In it, I talked about my beige John Ashford sweater, which I got as a Christmas present back then.  When I started to wear the sweater for the first time, I thought that it would give me a class turn me into a “classy dude” … and, boy, was I right about that!  Every time I wear it, it gives me class.  I was inspired to write the blog post because I was able to wear one of the classiest sweaters in my wardrobe.  I really like this sweater a lot … and I hope you all like it also.

Here’s the link to the blog post …

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’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.

Mr. Classy’s failed “stand-ins”

These people didn’t really fail when they were trying out to become one of Mr. Classy’s regular “stand-ins.”  They just turned down their chances to become one of his “stand-ins.”  “Mr. Classy” almost always wears the grey Michael Kors jacket … and, back in 2016, he allowed two people to have the chance to become one of Mr. Classy’s “stand-ins.”

First, in September of 2016, I turned my friend, Joe Cohen, into one of Mr. Classy’s “assistants” while I was at Bee’z Bistro and Pub one evening.  He did a fantastic job as one of his possible “stand-ins,” but he turned down the chance to become Mr. Classy’s regular “stand-in.”

Second, Bryan Gogarty, who worked with me at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx during the 2016 Holiday season, was able to turn into one of Mr. Classy’s possible “stand-ins” while we were in the store’s break room.  He did a fantastic job on the day that we wore the jackets, but he turned down the chance to be one of Mr. Classy’s regular “stand-ins.”

Both Joe Cohen and Bryan Gogarty did a fantastic job in trying to be Mr. Classy’s regular “stand-ins,” but they turned down their chances to do just that.  Two of my friends have been able to be Mr. Classy’s “stand-ins” over the past two years … and they are Jonathan Reed and Tim Smith.

Will “Mr. Classy” have another “stand-in” in the future?  Maybe.  Stay tuned…

“Mr. Classy” has a pre-Thanksgiving treat for you!

As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving Day with our friends and our relatives tomorrow, I’d like to show you a little surprise.  “Mr. Classy” has a little pre-Thanksgiving treat for you.  For the first time ever, you will see “Mr. Classy” showing off both of his jackets in one photo.  Before that, you would see them in separate photos, but, in today’s blog posts, you’re gonna see both of Mr. Classy’s jackets in the same photo.  In the photo, he’s holding the grey Michael Kors jacket while he’s wearing the leather jacket, which is from Vintage Leather.

Does “Mr. Classy” have a new “stand-in?”

This is a blog post that I had been wanting to write down for sometime … and, today, I get to do just that.

Now, in June of 2016, I became friends with a terrific person named Jonathan Reed.  Just in case you don’t know who he is, he’s married to a person that I went to school with more than 10 years ago.  Anyway, I “hired” him to become Mr. Classy’s “stand-in” just days after we became friends.  This way, he would be able to step up to the plate whenever “Mr. Classy” was unable to fulfill his duties.  He wasn’t able to do that too much, but he still did a fantastic job as Mr. Classy’s “stand-in.”  He gave up his duties whenever he had to part with the grey MK jacket.

This is Mr. Classy’s original “stand-in” … and his name is Jonathan Reed.  He was able to wear his grey MK jacket with class for a few months.  He gave up his duties as Mr. Classy’s “stand-in” whenever he parted with his grey MK jacket.

On August 16, 2018, “Mr. Classy” hired a new “stand-in” … and he would be able to fulfill Mr. Classy’s duties whenever he is unable to do so.  Of course, his new “stand-in” is a classy person.  Let me tell who “Mr. Classy” has hired to be his new “stand-in.”  His name is … Tim Smith.  Tim is a terrific person … and he is doing a fantastic job as Mr. Classy’s new “stand-in” so far.  Tim is married to my cousin, Sarah Smith.

Blog Post Number 925

Today, I am writing my 925th blog post … and, today, I would like to talk about one of the classiest friends that I have ever known.  His name is Justin Conklin.  I have been one of his friends for almost three years.  I have bumped into him a few times at the Iron Creek Bar and Grille, which is located in Cuddy … and I have bumped into him at Maestro’s Barber Shop, which is located in Bridgeville, a couple of times.  I have taken my selfies with him in both of those locations over the years.  Justin is one of the classiest people that I have ever known.

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For June 2018

Can you believe it?  The month of June is almost here … and that means that Summer is right around the corner.  It also means that we’re almost halfway through 2018 already.

In this blog post, I’m gonna tell you about a few of the blog posts that I’ll be writing down in June.  One of those blog posts will be my 900th blog post.  I’ll be writing it in the middle of the month.  I won’t tell you what it will be about yet, but I will give you a hint right now.  My 900th blog post will be about one of my classiest friends ever.  It could be about any one of you guys.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Joseph Remembers His Battle With Lyme Disease Two Years Later.”  I will talk about my battle with Lyme disease, which occurred nearly two years ago.  It seems like I just had it yesterday.  Tick season is getting underway, so I’m doing everything I can to stop myself from getting it again.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Joseph Is Not Going To The Cabins This Year!”  In the blog post, I will tell you why I won’t be going to the cabins this year.  The reason may surprise you a little bit.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Joseph’s New Colussy Chevrolet Shirt.”  This year, Colussy Chevrolet, which is located in South Fayette, is turning 100 years old this year … and they will have a classy shirt, which will come out next month.  I may buy one for myself next month.  Of course, if I don’t buy one, then I won’t write this blog post.  I will write a back-up blog post … and I don’t know what it will be about yet.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “An ‘ode’ to a classy friend named Michael.”  This blog post will be about one of my friends, whose name is Michael.  I can’t tell you which one it will be yet.

I will also give my features a break in June.  I’ll be giving my computer a break from around 7 p.m. on Friday, June 8th, until around 5 a.m. on Sunday, June 17th, which is Father’s Day.

I hope you will check out at least one of my blog posts in June.  Enjoy your day!
