Back in October of 2018, I got a black and white Nike Air jacket in the mail, but, since I ordered it as a “Christmas present,” I was not allowed to have it full-time for more than two months. I like the jacket so much, I was able to buy one for my uncle, whose name is Thomas Papakie, as a Christmas present as well. We both got them for Christmas last year … and we both still like them nearly one year later. We will continue to wear them in the future.
As we prepare to wrap up the year 2019 and the 2010s in general, I would like to tell you about the time that I was able to “get railed” for the Holidays in a stylish way. On December 21, 2019, I went to the Railyard Grill and Tap Room in Bridgeville for just over an hour that afternoon. I wore my red Boston Terrier sweater to the restaurant … and so did my friend, Nicholas Ciesielski. Now, I had owned my sweater for one year at that time … and, in a way, I wanted to celebrate the milestone in style. My mother bought me that sweater at Target … and, not long before I got my sweater, Nicholas got his sweater at Target as well. We were just being “stylish dudes” at the restaurant that afternoon … and we were literally “twinning” on that day. We both wore our sweaters with jeans and tennis shoes then.
Now, me and Nicholas also got our photo taken with Santa while we were at Railyard Grill and Tap Room that afternoon.
Before I left the restaurant that afternoon, I also snapped this photo with Jeremy Robinson, who is the manager of Railyard Grill and Tap Room. I have been to this restaurant many times since it opened in late 2016 … and I would like to say that Jeremy and his fellow staff members all do a fantastic job in making the Railyard Grill and Tap Room a classy place for us to eat and have fun.
Thank you all for allowing me to give you guys some fantastic blog posts during the latter half of the 2010s. I hope I can give you some more fantastic posts in the 2020s as well. Have a fantastic new year, my friends … and I will give you another fantastic blog post in 2020. I can’t tell you what it will be about just yet.
On the afternoon of December 7, 2015, I purchased a grey Michael Kors jacket at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx … and, overtime, it has become my favorite jacket of all time. Several days later, the jacket would start turning me into “Mr. Classy” whenever I would wear it. I would like to say thank you for allowing me to have a classy jacket for four years. This is actually my favorite jacket of all time.
I would like to give a special thanks to Bryan Gogarty, Joe Cohen, Jonathan Reed and Tim Smith for being able to wear the grey Michael Kors jacket at various times over the past four years. Two of those people became Mr. Classy’s “stand-ins” … and they both did a fantastic job in wearing the grey MK jacket with class. I would also like to thank my friend, Jeff Mooney, who used to work with me at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx, for inspiring me to make a classy decision in buying the grey Michael Kors jacket … and for allowing me to have a classy moniker like “Mr. Classy.”
“‘Mr. Classy’ says, ‘see you all later!'”
Nearly one year ago, I got my red Boston Terrier sweater from a company called 33 Degrees. The sweater is a Christmas sweater … and it is from Target. I really like this sweater … and so do a lot of other people. I hope you guys like this sweater as much as I do.
My friend, Nicholas Ciesielski, also has this sweater … and we were both able to wear them to Railyard Grill and Tap Room in Bridgeville back in April during the Bill Ali concert. I will wish Nicholas a happy 34th birthday in a blog post on Sunday. I would also like to say that this Christmas sweater turns both me and Nicholas into “stylish dudes.” The sweater is that good.
Today, I would like to talk about a blog post that I wrote down in December of 2018. The post is entitled “Joseph’s Nike Air Jacket.” In it, I talked about my black and white Nike Air jacket, which I got for Christmas, more than two months after my mother ordered it for me online. I said that I would wear it many times in 2019 … and I did just that. I was inspired to write this blog post because I wanted to talk about a classy jacket like the black and white Nike Air jacket. My uncle, Thomas Papakie, and my friend, Shawn Landy, have this jacket as well … and they wear it with class just like I do. I also got to revisit the post back in July as I was celebrating my blog’s fifth anniversary.
This jacket is perfect for classy people like me, my uncle and my friend.
Here’s the link to my blog post …
Joseph’s Nike Air Jacket (December 27, 2018)
On July 17, 2019, I got a much-needed haircut at Fella’s Barbershop in McDonald. Now, before I got my haircut that morning, I snapped a “before” photo in the vehicle.
Now, Fella’s Barbershop currently has three barbers, but, when I went there just over two months ago, there were just two barbers there. I would like you to meet two of the three barbers at are at the barbershop. They are Adam Stoffella and Hunter Dorazio.
Now, the third barber’s name is Austin Paris … and, hopefully, he will be there whenever I get my haircut there again this Fall. I will let you know if I see him there next time … and, if that happens, I will talk about him in a future blog post. In the meantime, you can say hello to Adam and Hunter, who are two of the barbers at Fella’s Barbershop.
Today, as I begin to use my computer again for the first time in several days, I have reached another milestone on this blog. I am writing my 1,200th blog post on this blog … and it will be about a classy person. His name is Jook Greer, who is one of my neighbors on National Hill.
Jook is one of the classiest people that I have ever known … and, back in April, we were able to wear both the white 2017 Stanley Cup Champions T-shirts and the grey and black Puma jackets with class … and swag. Well, actually, we just wore our shirts with class, but we did wear the jackets with both class and swag.
As you can see, Jook is both a classy neighbor and a swaggy friend. He is also the subject of my 1,200th blog post.
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 July, I will give you chances to revisit some posts from my blog’s fifth year. Today, I will let you revisit a post from May of 2019 … and it is entitled “Say hello to Dom Lazzini.”
On May 4, 2019, I went to South Fayette Stadium for the first time since I went to South Fayette High School in the 2000s. I went to a lacrosse game with one of my relatives late that morning. I wore my green South Fayette Lions Lacrosse pullover to the game … and my friend, Chuck Lazzini, wore his green top to the game as well. That was sort of planned. We also wore the tops to South Fayette Fire Hall just over two months earlier. Anyway, I bumped into Chuck Lazzini’s son, Dom, while I was there … and Dom was nice enough to appear in a photo with both me and Chuck while I was at South Fayette Stadium. Dom was literally surrounded by two classy people that day … and meeting Dom in person is an experience that I won’t soon forget. He is one of the classiest people that I have ever known.
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 17th in previous years …

Joseph’s Moment Of Peace: Joseph’s little vacuum cleaner! (July 19, 2018)
Over the weekend, I saw a lacrosse game at South Fayette Stadium … and I really enjoyed it, even though one of South Fayette’s Lacrosse teams lost by one point in overtime. I still like South Fayette’s Lacrosse team a lot.
I bumped into one of this blog’s followers, Chuck Lazzini, while I was at the game … and we both had our green lacrosse pullovers on while we were there. Also, while I was at the game, I bumped into Chuck’s son, Dom. Dom is a very classy person. He’s also a classy lacrosse player. He played for South Fayette’s lacrosse team in the past … and now he plays for Mount Union’s lacrosse team, which is located in Ohio. I also wore my Mount Union shirt underneath of my top … and Chuck wore a Mount Union hat that morning.
On May 4, 2019, while I was watching…

Today, I’d like to talk about a post from December of 2018 … and it’s entitled “Joseph’s Nike Air Jacket.”
Now, I got the black and white Nike Air jacket as a Christmas present back in December of 2018. My mother bought it for me on eBay more than two months earlier. I had to keep it hidden until Christmas Day … and it was hard for me to do so. I was able to wait more than two months before I could wear the jacket full time. I really like the jacket and I will wear it many times in the future. My friend, Shawn Landy, has this jacket … and, my uncle, Thomas Papakie, also has this jacket. I bought the jacket for my uncle as a Christmas present just weeks after I got mine in the mail … and we were both able to wear them with class on Christmas Day. Since we got our jackets, we’ve worn them several times … and I’m still talking some of my friends and my other relatives into buying this jacket as well. In fact, I may buy it for one of my relatives in the near future. It’s that classy. I still like this jacket today.
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 10th in previous years …

Let’s Talk About A Past Blog Post: Joseph’s New Classy Jacket (July 12, 2018)
A few weeks ago, my mother bought me a black and white Nike Air jacket on eBay. I kept it hidden from the middle of October until Christmas Day … and, then, on that day, I would start wearing it full time. I like the jacket a lot and I plan on wearing it many times in 2019.
This is Joseph’s black and white Nike Air jacket.
Just before Christmas, I was able to get that jacket for my uncle, Thomas Papakie, and he likes it as much as I do. We wore them with class on Christmas evening in 2018. Do we look like twins in them?
Joseph’s friend, Shawn Landy, who went to South Fayette High School with him in the 2000s, has the Nike Air jacket also … and he also wears it with class.
I hope you guys like the Nike Air jacket as much as…

During the second half of my blog’s fifth year, I will give you some chances to revisit some of my past blog posts. Today, I am going to let you revisit my 700th blog post, which is the last blog post from my blog’s third year.
In August of 2017, I went to Maestro’s Barber Shop and I was able to wear my Maestro’s Barber Shop T-shirt to that place. Me and most of the other barbers were able to wear the shirts in a photo that I took just before I left the barber shop back on August 2, 2017. I wrote a blog post about it nearly two weeks later and it ended up becoming my 700th blog post. As I stated in a previous blog post not too long ago, I’m currently not going to Maestro’s Barber Shop as a customer, but there is a possibility that I may return there as a customer again in the near future. These barbers are some of the best ones in the Pittsburgh area.
I would like to thank Tony Talotta and the other barbers at Maestro’s Barber Shop, which is located in Bridgeville, for allowing me to have a Maestro’s Barber Shop T-shirt. I would like to apologize for not being able to visit that barber shop for a while. I wanted to try something different. I will do my best to return to that barber shop at some point this year.
This is not my 700th blog post. This is my 1,131st blog post. I’m just letting you revisit my 700th blog post.
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 29th in previous years …

My blog reached another milestone today. I’m gonna write down my 700th blog post today.
My 700th blog post is gonna be about some of the coolest and classiest people that I have ever known. These people all work at a place called Maestro’s Barber Shop in Bridgeville. I actually went to school with one of those barbers … and I also knew some of these barbers whenever they were working at the Great Southern Barber Shop in Collier Township. I was able to appear in a photo with four of those barbers recently … and most of us were able to wear our Maestro’s Barbershop shirts at the barber shop a few days ago.
On August 2, 2017, I appeared in a photo with four of the barbers who work at Maestro’s Barber Shop in Bridgeville. Most of us wore our Maestro’s Barber Shop shirts to that place back…
