Remembering Piglet Four Years Later

February 12th is one of the saddest days of a year for me in a typical year because, on that date in 2015, Piglet, who was my English Bulldog, passed away at the age of 12.  Today, I’m marking the fourth anniversary of Piglet’s passing by writing this blog post down.  Not a day goes by where I don’t think about Piglet.  We have pictures of her all over our house … and we have a pink stone near the front of our house.  I will remember her for a long time.

Also, in recent years, I have talked about my bulldog, Piglet, in a blog post on February 12th of every year … and she was even the subject of my 350th blog post back in 2016.  You can find a link to those posts below the slideshow, which will appear just below this part of the post.

Joseph Is Switching Barber Shops In 2019

Yesterday morning, at around 10:00 or so, I got a haircut at Fella’s Barbershop, which is located in McDonald.  I went there back in December … and I really liked the place a lot.

On February 7, 2019, I went to Fella’s Barbershop in McDonald for the second time ever. I previously went there in December. I snapped this selfie just moments before Hunter Dorazio, who is one of the place’s barbers, gave me my haircut.

Now, Hunter Dorazio, who is one of the barbers at Fella’s Barber Shop, gave me my haircut again … and he did a fantastic job in giving me my haircut yesterday.  After I left the place, I gave it a lot of thought … and I’ve decided that I will be going to this place on a regular basis.  I will be going there again in just a few short weeks.

On February 7, 2019, I got my haircut at Fella’s Barber Shop in McDonald. I like it … and I hope you guys like it also.  I will be going to Fella’s Barber Shop on a regular basis in the future.

Over the years, I have gotten my haircuts at various places, including Fantastic Sams, Holiday Hair, The Great Southern Barber Shop, SportClips, the old JCPenney Salon in Bridgeville, BoRics Hair Salon in Scott Township, Great Clips and Maestro’s Barber Shop.  Now I will be getting my haircuts at Fella’s Barber Shop in the future.  Please don’t say anything negative about my decision.  It was a choice I made myself.

Blog Post Number 1,050 Is About My “Super” Uncle

I will not be using my computer until Saturday, February 2nd.  I will try to give you guys some terrific blog posts while I give my computer a break this week.

Today, I’m writing my 1,050th blog post on my blog … and it will be about my “super” uncle, whose name is Thomas Papakie.  I’m calling him a “super” uncle because he has a grey Superman shirt , just like I do.  We were able to wear them with class right before Christmas in 2018.

On December 22, 2018, me and Thomas Papakie wore the grey Superman shirts with class. In this case, he’s a “super” uncle.

The Origins Of “Mr. Classy”

For the past three years now, I have been able to call myself “Mr. Classy” whenever I would wear the grey Michael Kors jacket or the black leather jacket, which is from Vintage Leather.  Like yours truly, “Mr. Classy” is an introvert also.  He likes to be alone after being out and about for hours at a time.

Well, anyway, let me tell you how I cam up with “Mr. Classy” as my current nickname.  In 2015, one of my friends, whose name is Jeff Mooney, worked with me at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx … and he would sometimes call himself “Mr. Grey.”  It was sort of named after a character in the movie “Fifty Shades Of Grey.”  That’s sort of the reason why I chose “Mr. Classy” as my current nickname.  It happened just days after I bought my grey Michael Kors jacket at T.J. Maxx.  I like the jacket so much, I wanted to create an alter ego based around the jacket.  I didn’t call myself “Mr. Classy” right away.  As we were about to start the year 2016 together, I put on the jacket, I said I was “Mr. Classy” and “Mr. Classy” was born.

These pictures of “Mr. Classy” appeared in my blog posts throughout 2018.

These pictures of “Mr. Classy” appeared on my blog throughout 2017.

These pictures of “Mr. Classy” appeared on my blog throughout 2016.

In December of 2015, I snapped these photos right after I purchased the grey Michael Kors jacket.  I wouldn’t start calling myself “Mr. Classy” until the beginning of 2016.

“Mr. Classy” has had a lot of fun over the past three years … and he has had two “stand-ins” in those three years.  The “stand-ins” have also worn the grey MK jackets.  Jonathan Reed was Mr. Classy’s original “stand-in” … and Tim Smith is his current “stand-in.”

“‘Mr. Classy’ and his ‘stand-ins” all say, ‘see you all later!'”

Thank you for allowing me to become “Mr. Classy” for the past three years.

I will be giving my computer a break from 7:00 this evening until 5:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 2nd.  I will try to give you some terrific blog posts while I give my computer a break over the next week.  Enjoy your day!

I have owned my green lacrosse pullover top for one year!

I have now owned my green South Fayette Lions Lacrosse pullover top, which is from Holloway, for almost one year.  It’s one of the classiest tops that I have ever owned … and I’ve worn it several times over the past year.  I’ve worn it with jeans, dress pants and even shorts.  It’s one of my favorite tops ever.  My mother ordered it for me online in the Fall of 2017 … and I got it in January of 2018.  It seems like I just got it yesterday.  My friend, Chuck Lazzini, also has this top … and we always wear our tops with class.  I will wear my top many times in 2019.

I would also like to thank Chuck for allowing me to own a classy top for almost one year.

The Two “Macho Dudes” Were Back At Bee’z Recently!

Back in May of 2018, me and DJ Joe were able to wear our purple Macho Man shirts to Bee’z Bistro and Pub, which is located in South Fayette … and, this past Wednesday, we were able to wear those shirts to the restaurant again.  Yes, we wore them with class once again.

Here’s a picture of me wearing my shirt with class …

Here are two pictures of us wearing the shirts with class …

As you can see in these photos, the “macho dudes” were able to spend about two hours at Bee’z Bistro and Pub one evening.  Hopefully we can do it again soon.

Happy 55th Birthday, Kevin!

Today, I would like to wish one of my friends a happy 55th birthday … and his name is Kevin Barnett.  Kevin and I worked at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx together in one form or another from 2007 until 2011.  We have now been friends for over ten years … and, in December of 2013, I was able to bump into him at the Rite-Aid store in Scott Township.  We had our leather jackets on then … and, just over two years earlier, we wore our leather jackets in a photo that we took just before he left T.J. Maxx as a worker.  Hopefully, I can bump into him at some point in 2019.  Kevin is one of the classiest friends I have ever known … and he was one of the best co-workers I have ever worked with.

Say Hello To Victor Iagnemma!

Today, I am writing my first blog post of 2019 … and I would like to start the year off by telling you about a person that I bumped into while I was walking through Bridgeville Giant Eagle on Christmas Eve.  I also bumped into this person at Bob Evans, which is located on Route 50 near Kirwan Heights.  The person’s name is Victor Iagnemma.  He’s a teacher at South Fayette High School … and we works mainly in the school’s athletic wing.  You’ll usually find him in either the gym or the fitness center.  Well, anyway, while I bumped into him at Bridgeville Giant Eagle, I snapped a selfie with him … and you’ll see it below this part of the blog post.

No Bad Days For Joseph

As we prepare to wrap up 2018 together, I’d like to tell you about a fantastic shirt that I got for Christmas this year.  It was given to me by a friend of mine … and his name is Marques Parks.  We went to South Fayette High School together in the 2000s.  He gave me a grey No Bad Days shirt for Christmas.  Actually, my mother ordered it for me online, but Marques really did give it to me.  It is a classy shirt … and I will wear it many times in 2019.  I can’t promise you that I won’t have any bad days in 2019, but this shirt might give me the message in a unique way.  I would like to thank Marques for allowing me to have a classy shirt like this one.

This is Joseph’s No Bad Days shirt. He got it as a Christmas present this year. He is wearing it with class … and it was given to him by someone named Marques Parks, who went to school with him in the 2000s.
Here’s a close-up shot of the shirt.
