I have owned my DBZ T-shirt for one year!

For just over one year now, I have owned my “Dragon Ball Z” T-shirt.  I really like this shirt a lot … and I have worn it several times over the past year.  I got it last year for my 33rd birthday.  My neighbor and friend, Michael Spicer, got it for me for my 33rd birthday last year … and I would like to thank him for getting me a classy shirt in 2019.  This is one of the best shirts I have ever owned.

I hope you guys like this Dragon Ball Z T-shirt as much as I do.  I will continue to wear it many more times in the future.  Thank you, Michael Spicer, for allowing me to have a fantastic T-shirt like this Dragon Ball Z T-shirt.

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For May 2020

Can you believe it?  The month of May is almost here … and, during the month of April, lots of people, including myself, have had to stay home a lot.  I do still walk to my mailbox whenever I have to, but that’s pretty much it.  I have been able to write some neat blog posts on my home computer while we all have had to stay at home during the Coronavirus Outbreak.  I will give you guys some more blog posts in May … and my features will be taking a well-deserved break in May.

One of my blog posts will be entitled “I have owned my DBZ T-shirt for one year!”  I will talk about my DBZ T-shirt in a blog post in May.  I would like to thank my neighbor and friend, Michael Spicer, for getting me the DBZ T-shirt for my 33rd birthday last year.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Joseph Has Owned His Grey Penguins Shirt For Four Years Now!”  I will talk about my grey Penguins T-shirt in a blog post in May.  Me and my friend, Chuck Lazzini, who occasionally follows this blog, have both owned that shirt for almost four years now.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Guess who is 34 today?”  In the blog post, I will wish myself a happy 34th birthday.  I plan on writing that blog post at around 7:00 on Friday morning.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “I have had a classy ensemble for one year now!”  I will talk about some of my classy outfits in a blog post in May … and they are the purple crew neck T-shirt from Arizona, my dark wash jeans from Chaps, my grey polo shirt from Chaps and my grey half-zip pullover from Nike.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Cheyenne is 25 years old today!”  I will wish my cousin, Cheyenne Papakie, a happy 25th birthday in the blog post.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Blog Post Number 1,375 Is About A Classy Sweater!”  I can’t tell you which sweater I’ll be talking about just yet, but I can assure you … the sweater will be a classy one.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Did I get any presents for my 34th birthday?”  Now, I probably won’t get too many presents this year because of the COVID-19 Outbreak, but I know I will get at least one birthday present this year.  I will show you the presents, if I have more than one of them, in a blog post in May.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “8,000 Views And Counting.”  My blog will hit the 8,000-views mark in May … and I will talk about the event in a blog post whenever it does occur.

I will give my features a break in May … and, of course, I will give you some fantastic blog posts in May.  Some of them may catch your eye.  Stay safe and enjoy your day, my friends!

Jay Papuga Is A Very Classy Friend Of Mine

Today, I would like to wish my friend, Jay Papuga, a happy birthday.  He works at a State Farm office in Presto.  I probably won’t bump into him in person anytime soon because of the Coronavirus Outbreak, so I will show you the two photos of me into Jay in two different locations over the years.  I have been a friend of his since 2016.

Joseph bumped into Jay Papuga at a local festival back in July of 2016.

On August 31, 2018, I bumped into Jay Papuga while I was at his office in Presto. He actually wore the same State Farm that he wore whenever I bumped into him at a church festival in Scott Township two years earlier.

You may have noticed that Jay wore the same grey and red State Farm shirt in the two selfies that I took with him.  The first one is from July of 2016 … and, in it, I bumped into him at a church festival at Sts. Simon and Jude High School in Scott Township.  The second one is from August of 2018 … and, in that one, I bumped into him at his office in Presto.  Jay, if you are reading this blog post, I would like to wish you a happy birthday today.

Let’s Talk About A Past Blog Post: My green and yellow Brasil jacket

Today, I would like to talk about one of the first blog posts that I ever wrote on my blog.  I wrote my seventh blog post down on September 7, 2014 … and it is entitled “My green and yellow Brasil jacket.”  In the post, I talked about my green and yellow Brasil jacket, which I purchased at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx back in February of 2014.  I showed you both sides of my jacket in the blog post.  I also bought one for my cousin and friend, Shane Trylko.  He likes his jacket as much as I like mine.  These jackets are our “friendship jackets.”  I was inspired to write this blog post because I wanted to show you guys a fantastic jacket.

Last March, I was able to revisit that blog post as my blog was celebrating its fifth year.

Before I show you the link to the blog post, I would like you to see me and Shane wearing this green and yellow Brasil jacket in some photos.

Here’s the link to the blog post …

Happy birthday, Justin McKean!

Today, I would like to wish a very classy person named Justin McKean a happy birthday today.  On January 23, 2007, he was one of three substitute teachers that I had while I was finishing up my time at South Fayette High School … and we have been terrific friends for 13 years now.  He is one of the classiest people I have ever known … and he is able to be a casual and a classy dresser as well.  I sometimes get ideas for my wardrobe from him.  He is casual and classy.  I have bumped into Justin several times over the past 13 years … and, in July of 2016, I was able to snap a selfie with Justin at McSummerfest … and, that evening, we both had our white 2016 Stanley Cup Champions T-shirts on.

So, again, I would like to say that Justin McKean is a very classy friend … and I would like to thank him for allowing me to talk about him in some of my blog posts over the past 5 1/2 years, including my 1,000th blog post.  Happy birthday, Justin!

Celebrating One Year Of Friendship With Bill Ali

One year ago today, I became friends with musician Bill Ali.  I would see one of his concerts on April 7, 2019, while I was at Railyard Grill and Tap Room in Bridgeville.  That afternoon, while I was there, I became an official fan of Bill Ali’s work.  As of today, the show that I saw him do there last April is the only Bill Ali show I had ever seen.  I almost made it two last month, but I was unable to go there because I was very busy, but, hopefully, I can see one of his shows again whenever I’m able to go there again.  Bill is a terrific musician … and he and his band, which is called The Bill Ali Band, are able to put on some of the best shows in and around the Pittsburgh area.  I hope you will be able to see one of his shows if you happen to be in the Pittsburgh area in the future.

On April 7, 2019, I met Bill Ali, who is the leader of The Bill Ali Band. He and his band put on a fantastic show at the Railyard Grill And Tap Room that afternoon.

Spring is now in full swing … and, before you know it, the month of April will be here.  Then, in just a few weeks, I will be celebrating my 34th birthday.  Just don’t ask me how I’ll be celebrating it just yet.  Fears of the Coronavirus may cause me to celebrate it at home; however, you will have to answer a question about my birthday plans in a blog post in April.

Now, today, I’m going to tell you about some of the blog posts that I’ll be writing down in April.  I will give you guys some fantastic posts throughout April … and I hope you guys can check out at least one of these posts whenever you can.

One of my blog posts will be entitled “Brady Has Been With Us For One Year Now!”  Brady first came to our house on March 30, 2019.  It seems like he first came to our house yesterday.  He’s a fantastic dog … and I will talk about his first year with us in a blog post on March 30th.

I will also be using my blog’s features in April.  Let me tell you how I’ll be using them this time…

How are you guys staying safe during the Coronavirus Outbreak?

For the next several days or so, a lot of us will have to stay at home as the Coronavirus Outbreak continues.  I am staying safe by staying inside of my house as much as possible.  I will be walking to my mailbox on most of those days … and, of course, if I do go outdoors during the day, I am doing my best to stay at least six feet away from the nearest person.  Of course, I am still writing blog posts on my computer in my house’s “computer room” four to five times a week.  In fact, today, I am writing a post at home on my computer … and I would like to know how you guys are all staying safe during the Coronavirus Outbreak.

Please enjoy the rest of your day … and stay safe and stay home during the Coronavirus Outbreak.  We will do our best to get through it together.
