Say hello to my friend, Brandon McEwen

On November 17, 2018, while I was at the Shop ‘n Save store in Imperial, I bumped into Brandon McEwen, who went to South Fayette High School with me in the 2000s.

On November 17, 2018, while I was shopping at Imperial Shop ‘n Save with my relatives, I bumped into Brandon McEwen, who went to South Fayette High School with me in the 2000s.  I have bumped into some terrific people over the years … and, of course, you never know who you’re gonna bump into whenever you go out and about.  Who knows?  I may turn those moments into blog posts … and I’ve done that several times over the past four years.

Next time, “Mr. Classy” will give you a little pre-Thanksgiving treat.

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

An “ode” to a friend named “Deek”

If you were growing up in the ’90s like me, you may have seen a rather unique logo on television.  It was for a production company called DiC.  It was pronounced “Deek” … and you heard someone say the word almost every single time.

I’m not going to talk about that company, but I would like to talk about the word “Deek” itself.  In fact, one of my friends sometimes uses that name.  His real name is Derek Cryblskey.  I talked about him in a blog post earlier this year.  Derek is a terrific friend and a classy neighbor.  He is polite, funny and down-to-earth.  Sometimes, I call him “Deek.”  Again, he’s just a terrific friend.

On May 19, 2018, me and Derek Cryblskey, who is one of my friends, were able to wear the camouflaged Yeti shirts with class. Derek is one of the classiest people that I’ve ever known.

Joseph’s 1,000th Blog Post

Well, ladies and gentlemen, this is it.  Today is a big day for me and for my blog.  I am writing my 1,000th blog post on my blog … and, as I’ve been saying for weeks now, it could be about a person, a place or a thing.  Well, after giving this a lot of thought. I’ve decided that my 1,000th blog post will be about a person.

FB_IMG_1542273586651
This is Joseph’s 1,000th blog post. He has this sign to prove it.

My 1,000th blog post will be about a classy friend of mine … and this friend is cool, casual and classy in many ways.  The person’s name is Justin McKean.  I first became friends with him while I was at South Fayette High School back on January 23, 2007.  He was one of the three substitute teachers that I had while I was at the school back then.  For nearly 12 years now, Justin has been a terrific friend of mine … and I bumped into him several times since then.  I bumped into him at McSummerfest in July of 2016.  He’s able to be cool, casual and classy on so many levels … and I often get my fashion and wardrobe ideas from him.  Thank you, Justin, for being a terrific friend of mine … and thank you for allowing me to talk about you in my 1,000th blog post.

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For November 2018

November is almost here already … and, before you know it, 2018 will be coming to an end.  At some point in November, I will write my 1,000th blog post down … and it could be about anything.  Since I will be celebrating this milestone throughout the first half of November, I will be giving my features my break in November.  Also, as I prepare to write my 1,000th blog post in just a matter of days, I will write a 10-part blog post, which will be entitled “Joseph’s Road To His 1,000th Blog Post.”  In it, I will talk about my blog’s biggest milestones ever.  If everything goes according to plan, I will being my “road” to my 1,000th blog post on Thursday.

Of course, after I write my 1,000th blog post in the middle of November and after I celebrate the milestone, I will give you some great blog posts along the way.  One of my blog posts will be entitled “An ‘ode’ to a friend named ‘Deek.'”  It will be about my friend Derek Cryblskey, who sometimes likes to be called “Deek.”

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “I have owned my leather jacket for one year!”  I’m referring to my black leather jacket, which is from Vintage Leather.  I purchased it on kohls.com just last year.  It’s one of two jackets that turns me into “Mr. Classy.”  The other jacket, of course, is the grey Michael Kors jacket.

“Mr. Classy” and the grey Michael Kors jacket will be the subjects of the blog post that I’m about to tell you about.  This post will be entitled “Will the real ‘Mr. Classy’ please stand up?”  This post will be about “Mr. Classy” and his “stand-in,” whose name is Tim Smith.  Hopefully, we can wear our jackets on Thanksgiving Day this year.  If we can’t do that, I will give you guys a back-up blog post instead.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Joseph Has Another Classy Item To Show You.”  I may buy another classy item at T.J. Maxx soon.  If I do buy the item, I will talk about it in this blog post.

I will give my blog a break for Halloween, but, beginning this Thursday, I will start my road to my 1,000th blog post.

I hope you guys will help me celebrate my 1,000th blog post in November … and I hope you will check out my 1,000th blog post when it does come out in the middle of November.  Don’t forget to check out my other blog posts throughout November as well.

Enjoy your day!

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

Bring On The Puma Jackets!

Since the Spring of 2012, I have been able to own at least one Puma jacket … and, now, I have three of them.  One is a blue and white Agile jacket, one is a blue Clyde jacket and one is a grey and black fleece jacket.  The Puma jacket that I like the best is the grey and black Puma jacket, which I got as a birthday present back in April.  I like it a lot … and I was able to talk my friend, Michael Keehn, into buying one online at around the same time.  He likes it as much as I do.

We were supposed to wear the jackets to Hickory’s Apple Festival earlier this month, but it was too hot for us to do that.  We were able to wear them at our respective locations on October 13th.  The jackets are full of class and swag.  Hopefully, we can wear them somewhere soon.

Happy 4th Birthday, Scarlett!

Today, I would like to wish my cousin, Scarlett, a happy fourth birthday.  She is one of the classiest cousins I have ever known.  We had a party for her at AMF Mt. Lebanon Lanes, which is located in Mt. Lebanon, on Sunday afternoon.  I really enjoyed myself at this event.

Joseph’s Trip To Houston’s Pumpkin Festival

This past Sunday, I went to Houston’s Pumpkin Festival, which is located in Washington County.  I have been to this event several times over the years … and I was able to go there for about 90 minutes on Sunday morning.  I went there with my relatives.  It may have been a little bit chilly outside, but I still had fun there nonetheless … and, luckily, it didn’t start raining heavily until after I left the festival.

On October 14, 2018, I went to Houston’s Pumpkin Festival with my relatives. I had fun at the event, even though it was a little bit chilly outside that morning.

I went underneath of a pavilion while I was at the Festival. It wasn’t raining whenever I snapped this photo. I had eaten my lunch just minutes before I took the photo.

Also, while I was at the Pumpkin Festival in Houston, I bumped into two of my friends.  I actually went to school with both of these friends.  They are Daniel McGovern and Ryan Faraci.

Joseph’s 978th Blog Post Is About Route 978

Today, I’m writing my 978th blog post down … and it will be about one of my favorite roadways in the Pittsburgh area.  That roadway is Route 978.  It starts near Gladden and it ends near Imperial.

I have traveled on Route 978 many, many times in my life … and I really like the roadway a lot.  One of my relatives lives right on that roadway … and some of my favorite businesses are located on the roadway.  I could ride on this roadway all day long, if I could.  It’s just a great roadway.

Over the years, I have gone to a lot of exciting places, which are located along Route 978 … and I’ve talked about some of those businesses in my blog posts over the past four years.
