An “ode” to “Mr. Classy” and his “stand-in”

Since late 2015, I have owned my grey Michael Kors jacket … and, just days after I bought it, I started calling myself “Mr. Classy” every time I would wear the jacket.  I was able to wear the jacket for a couple of hours this morning … and it’s actually too warm for me to wear the jacket this afternoon.  With that in mind, I’d like to write another “ode” for you guys.  This time, it’s about “Mr. Classy” and his “stand-in.”

“Mr. Classy” became somewhat popular in early 2016 … and, two years ago this month, “Mr. Classy” was able to hire a “stand-in” … and his name is Jonathan Reed.

I would just like to say that “Mr. Classy” and his “stand-in” are both able to wear the grey Michael Kors jackets with class.  Whenever “Mr. Classy” is unable to fulfill his duties, his “stand-in” will be able to fulfill Mr. Classy’s duties.

I have had a classy friend for one year! (June 18, 2017)
I would like to give praise to Mr. Classy’s “stand-in” today! (April 13, 2017)

Hopefully, “Mr. Classy” and his “stand-in” will be able to remain classy for at least another year or so.

Let’s Make Some Things Clear

In an episode of “The Brady Bunch,” Greg wanted his parents to use “exact words” with him so that he would know exactly what they were telling him.  Well, in my case, I’m asking my relatives and friends to talk clearly and specifically with me whenever they talk to me about certain things.  Let me tell you what I mean by that.

Whenever you guys tell me that you are gonna go to a store, you would have to tell me exactly which store you would be going to.  Are you going to this store or that store?  Now, we have more than one Dollar General store near my house … and if you told me that you were gonna go to Dollar General, you would have to tell me which Dollar General store you were gonna go to.  Are you gonna go to the one in McDonald, Cecil, Hickory, Canonsburg, Houston or Clinton?  This way, I’ll know exactly which one of those stores you would be going to at a certain time.

Now, if you guys speak to me specifically and clearly about certain things, I would know exactly what you were talking about.  This way, I can have many of the facts instead of just having some of the facts.

I hope you were able to let me make some things clear for you guys in this blog post.

Joseph’s 900th Blog Post

Today, I’m writing my 900th blog post … and, in more than 100 days or so, I will write my all-important 1,000th blog post on this blog.

Today, my 900th blog post will be about one of the classiest people that I have ever known … and his name is Derek Cryblskey.  Derek is one of the classiest friends that I have ever known.  He is a terrific friend and a terrific neighbor.  He also knows one of my store’s co-workers.

Recently, we were able to wear the camouflaged Yeti shirts with class.

An “ode” to a classy friend named Michael

I am giving my computer a break this week … and I am giving you guys two unique blog posts this week.  I wrote one of them down earlier this week.

In this blog post, I would like to talk about a terrific person … and the person’s name is Michael Keehn.  We have been friends for a few years now.  I may have seen him from time to time whenever I was younger, but I officially became friends with him in August of 2014.  I was at Nicky Papakie’s 50th birthday party whenever I became friends with him.  Michael is a very classy friend.

Michael Keehn and I have been friends for a few years … and he is one of the classiest friends that I have ever known.

I hope you guys were able to check out both of my unique blog posts this week.  I will start using my computer again on Sunday, June 17th, which is also Father’s Day.

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!

The two sides of Kurta

Today, in this blog post, I would like to talk about the two sides of my friend, Robert Kurta … and, believe me, I have seen both sides of him several times in the three years that we have been friends.  We are both Facebook friends and real-life friends as well.

I first became Facebook friends with him back in the Summer of 2015 … and, not long after that, he would start bumping into me regularly whenever I would take my walks around National Hill.  First, he would do that as a member of South Fayette’s police department … and then, after he retired from that police department, he would just bump into me as a regular friend.  He would also bump into me whenever I would go through Oakdale.

I don’t have any photos of me bumping into him here in South Fayette, but I do have two photos of myself bumping into him in Oakdale.  So, without further ado, let me show you “The two sides of Kurta.”

First, I bumped into Kurta whenever I was watching the parade in Oakdale back in the Summer of 2016.  I snapped this selfie near the Oakdale Inn, which is located in the heart of Oakdale.

I bumped into Robert Kurta while I was at Oakdale’s parade back on July 29, 2016.

Second, I bumped into Kurta whenever I was walking along the Panhandle Trail in Oakdale on Sunday morning.  He was wearing a police officer’s uniform whenever I snapped a selfie.  He presently works a few hours a week at Oakdale’s police department.

On May 27, 2018, while I was walking along The Panhandle Trail in Oakdale, I bumped into Robert Kurta, who currently works for Oakdale’s police department.

Thank you for allowing me to show you “the two sides of Kurta” in this blog post.

Now, two years ago, before I retired one of my blog’s features, which is called “Joseph’s Road To His 30th Birthday,” I did say that I was hoping that I would see Kurta wearing something other than an officer’s uniform.  Well, I did just that three months later.  Hopefully, that can happen again soon.

Let’s Talk About A Past Blog Post: We have the exact same birthday!

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.

In December of 2016, I wrote a blog post entitled “We have the exact same birthday!”  In it, I talked about me and my friend, Ryan Wolf.  I also said that we both have the exact same birthday, which is May 1, 1986.  I actually bumped into Ryan a few days before I wrote that blog post down … and it sort of inspired me to write the blog post down.  Ryan is both a terrific friend and a terrific classmate.

Here’s a link to the blog post …
We have the exact same birthday!

Joseph Is Celebrating His 2,500th Day on Facebook Today!

Now, as you probably know, a lot of TV programs like to celebrate certain milestones.  Of course, it’s not every day that you hear someone celebrate an event that I’m about to bring up in today’s blog post.  I have now been on Facebook for 2,500 days.  I first became a Facebook friend on July 18, 2011 … and two of my Facebook friends have been my friends on Facebook from the very beginning.  Those people are Frank Nicotero, who is a comedian, and Andrew Taglianetti, who used to be a Pitt Football player.  Since then, I have had nearly 550 friends on Facebook.  Of course, I’ve actually had more than 550 friends on Facebook for nearly seven years, but, of course, a few of those people have come and gone over the past 2,500 days or so.  Hopefully, I’ll have more fun on Facebook over the next 2,500 days or so.

Should Joseph buy a hoodie from Maestro’s Barber Shop?

For just over one year now, I have owned my Maestro’s Barber Shop T-shirt.  I really like this shirt a lot … and I try to wear it whenever I can.  I usually wear it whenever I go to Maestro’s Barber Shop, which is located in Bridgeville, but I don’t always wear it there.

Whenever I went there last Wednesday, I wore my Back in the ‘Burgh shirt instead.  Of course, I will wear the Maestro’s Barber Shop shirt whenever I go to the barber shop this Summer.  Of course, I may wear the Maestro’s Barber Shop to other places as well.  It all depends on my mood, of course.

Now, Maestro’s Barber Shop also has hoodies there … and, whenever I go to the barber shop again later this year, I may consider buying myself a hoodie from them.  Do you think I should get the hoodie while I’m at the barber shop?  I think I should!  I’m sure it’s a very classy hoodie.
