I have owned my orange camo hat for one year!

I am now able to use my computer again after giving it a break for several days.  I started using it again early this morning … and, today, I would like to talk about my orange camouflaged hat, which I have owned for one year.  The hat is from the Pennsylvania National Guard.  I have worn the hat several times over the past year … and, of course, I have been able to wear it with class every time.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around September 16th in previous years …

An “ode” to a terrific friend named Ted

Today, I would like to tell you about a terrific friend of mine … and his name is Ted Wolford.  Ted is one of the classiest people that I have ever known … and I was able to bump into him here on National Hill last August.

On August 12, 2017, I was taking my walk around National Hill … and I bumped into Ted Wolford while I was doing just that. I bumped into him earlier in the afternoon while I was taking a short walk around my neighborhood.

Joseph’s 950th Blog Post

Today, I’m writing my 950th blog post for you guys … and, today, I’m going to tell you about one of the classiest people that I have ever known.  His name is Tony Talotta.  Tony is a barber at Maestro’s Barber Shop, which is located in Bridgeville.  We both went to South Fayette High School together … and I have been friends with him for more than ten years.

On July 18, 2018, while I was at Maestro’s Barber Shop, me and Tony were able to wear our “Back in the ‘Burgh” shirts with class.  This was actually planned, believe it or not.

My “super” friend and neighbor, Michael

Since at least the late 2000s, Michael Spicer has been one of my neighbors on National Hill .. and, up until the Summer of 2012, I didn’t really get to know him that much.  That all changed on August 29, 2012, whenever I introduced myself to him near his home on National Hill … and, just three days later, we became friends on Facebook.

I would just like to say that Michael Spicer is both a “super friend” and a “super neighbor.”  We have now been real-life friends for six years … and we also like to celebrate our “friendaversary” in a rather interesting way.  We both have the grey Superman T-shirts … and we like to wear the shirts on or around August 29th of each year.  As of today, I have decided to dub those shirts as our “friendship shirts.”  That’s because our grey Superman T-shirts are now the official shirts of our friendship.

This is Michael Spicer, who is one of my neighbors on National Hill. He has been one of my neighbors for over 10 years … and he has been one of my friends for six years. Michael is a “super” friend and a “super” neighbor.
IMG_20180901_115806089
For more than 10 years, Michael and I have been neighbors on National Hill … and, for six of those years, we have been real-life friends. We are both “super friends” and “super neighbors” … and we have the grey Superman shirts to prove it. The shirts are now the official shirts of our friendship. I have now dubbed them our “friendship shirts.”

Next time, I will write my 950th blog post on my blog … and it will be about one of the classiest people that I have ever known.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I would like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around September 2nd in previous years …

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.

“Mr. Classy” and his “stand-in” were able to wear the grey MK jackets with class on August 16, 2018. As you can see here, you can wear the grey MK jackets with either jeans or shorts.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around August 30th in previous years …

Joseph Finally Bumps Into Derek’s Mother!

For the past few weeks or so, I have been telling you that my blog’s fifth year would be full of surprises … and, boy, do I have a surprise for you!  On August 18, I went to Derek and Kayla’s wedding at the Cambria Suites Hotel in Uptown Pittsburgh … and I knew that Derek’s mother, Michele Papakie, would also be there.

Now, for the first time in over four years, I bumped into Michele while I was at that wedding.  I knew I was gonna be able to bump into her one way or another.  I previously bumped into her at my own house back in the Spring of 2014.
