I may be taking my evening walks again soon!

Late last year, I said that I would no longer take my evening walks around National Hill.  Well, I may rethink that idea in the future.  It actually came to me after I happened to bump into one of my neighbors in Great Southern Shopping Center on Friday morning.  Later that day, I would walk around National Hill for a few minutes … and I would do that a few times over the weekend.  While I was walking, I did some thinking … and, this week, I will be walking around National Hill at around 6:25 in the evening.  If it works, I may start walking at my old time again in the future.  So, obviously, at some point after the Fourth of July, I will start walking at around 5:00 on select afternoons … and I will do that mainly on weekdays.

On June 17, 2019, at around 6:30 in the evening, I took my first evening walk around National Hill in several months. I said that I would no longer take my evening walks late last year, but I may reinstate them on a regular basis in just a matter of days. Beginning right after the Fourth of July, I will walk at 5:00 on select afternoons, mainly on weekdays.

If you happen to see me walking outdoors one evening this Summer, please say hello to me … and make sure you speak to me in a respectful and friendly manner.

Next time, I will give you a chance to revisit two of my blog posts from my blog’s fourth year.  One is from April of 2018 … and one is from March of 2018.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around June 18th in previous years …

I’m Getting Ready To Celebrate My Blog’s Fifth Anniversary

This week, I am giving my computer a break, but I will be giving you some interesting blog posts this week.  I will start using my computer again at 5:00 a.m. on Sunday, June 16th.

This Summer, my blog will be celebrating its fifth anniversary…and I will be celebrating it for one month.  I will start celebrating this milestone on July 24th … and it will all lead up to my blog’s fifth anniversary, which will occur on August 24th.  Let me tell you how I’ll be celebrating my blog’s fifth anniversary this Summer.

On July 24th, I will give you the top posts from each of my blog’s features.

On July 25th, I will tell you about the multi-part blog posts that I wrote down over the past five years.

On July 26th, I will give you the poll questions that I asked you guys in some of my blog posts.

On July 28th, I will talk about my blog’s features and I will tell you how many posts have used my features.

On July 29th, I will tell you which people have been following my blog the longest.

On July 30th, I will tell you how many words are in the posts that I have been writing down over the past five years.

On July 31st, I will tell you about my “lesser-known” blog posts.  Since there are so many “lesser-known” posts on my blog, I will save you time by telling you how many of my posts have been seen just one time since I wrote them down.

From August 4th until August 8th, I will talk about each of my blog’s years.  I will talk about my blog’s first year on August 4th, I will talk about my blog’s second year on August 5th, I will talk about my blog’s third year on August 6th, I will talk about my blog’s fourth year on August 7th and I will talk about my blog’s fifth year on August 8th.  I’ll tell you how many times my blog was seen in each of those years … and I’ll tell you how many posts I wrote down in each of those years.

From August 12th until August 15th and from August 19th until August 22nd, I will give you my blog’s statistics in eight of my blog posts.

Finally, on August 24th, I will celebrate my blog’s fifth anniversary by writing a rather big blog post for you guys.  I will basically just thank you guys for supporting my blog over the past five years.  I may throw in a surprise or two for you guys in the post as well.

I hope you will be able to join me this Summer as we prepare to celebrate my blog’s fifth year.  Of course, it will be full of surprises!

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around June 12th in previous years …

Say hello to my friend, Jessica Asti

Last Sunday, at around 10:10 in the morning, I was leaving Heidelberg Shop ‘n Save after shopping in there for a few minutes … and, just before I walked out one of the doors, I just happened to bump into another one of my classmates.  Her name is Jessica Asti.  In the past, she was Jessica Deep.  Jessica is one of my neighbors on National Hill … and we both went to South Fayette High School together.  Obviously, in the past, we would bump into each other at the bus stop, which was at one end of Campbell Avenue.  Jessica lived on Allegheny Avenue, which is the other street on National Hill.  She’s not currently one of my neighbors at this time, but she does visit National Hill from time to time … and, in a way, she’s still one of my neighbors.

Anyway, whenever I bumped into Jessica at Heidelberg Shop ‘n Save last week, she was nice enough to pose for a selfie with me … and you can see it below this part of the blog post.

On May 26, 2019, as I was Heidelberg Shop ‘n Save at around 10:10 that morning, I bumped into Jessica Asti, who was once one of my neighbors on National Hill. She went to South Fayette High School with me in the 2000s.

Revisiting Joseph’s 700th Blog Post

During the second half of my blog’s fifth year, I will give you some chances to revisit some of my past blog posts. Today, I am going to let you revisit my 700th blog post, which is the last blog post from my blog’s third year.

In August of 2017, I went to Maestro’s Barber Shop and I was able to wear my Maestro’s Barber Shop T-shirt to that place. Me and most of the other barbers were able to wear the shirts in a photo that I took just before I left the barber shop back on August 2, 2017. I wrote a blog post about it nearly two weeks later and it ended up becoming my 700th blog post. As I stated in a previous blog post not too long ago, I’m currently not going to Maestro’s Barber Shop as a customer, but there is a possibility that I may return there as a customer again in the near future. These barbers are some of the best ones in the Pittsburgh area.

I would like to thank Tony Talotta and the other barbers at Maestro’s Barber Shop, which is located in Bridgeville, for allowing me to have a Maestro’s Barber Shop T-shirt. I would like to apologize for not being able to visit that barber shop for a while. I wanted to try something different. I will do my best to return to that barber shop at some point this year.

This is not my 700th blog post.  This is my 1,131st blog post.  I’m just letting you revisit my 700th blog post.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around May 29th in previous years …

Joseph Pratt's Interests And Some Other Things

My blog reached another milestone today.  I’m gonna write down my 700th blog post today.

My 700th blog post is gonna be about some of the coolest and classiest people that I have ever known.  These people all work at a place called Maestro’s Barber Shop in Bridgeville.  I actually went to school with one of those barbers … and I also knew some of these barbers whenever they were working at the Great Southern Barber Shop in Collier Township.  I was able to appear in a photo with four of those barbers recently … and most of us were able to wear our Maestro’s Barbershop shirts at the barber shop a few days ago.

Joseph’s New “Dragon Ball Z” T-Shirt

Today, I would like to show you another present that I got for my 33rd birthday.  It would be a blue “Dragon Ball Z” T-Shirt.  Now, I already have an orange “Dragon Ball Z” zip-up hoodie, which is from Ripple Junction.  I got it in the mail back in 2015 … and I like it a lot.  The “Dragon Ball Z” T-Shirt, which is from Wal-Mart, is the second “Dragon Ball Z” shirt that I have ever owned.  My neighbor, Michael Spicer, got me the “Dragon Ball Z” shirt for my birthday … and I really like it a lot.  I would like to thank him for getting it for me and for allowing me to have a classy shirt of my own.

As you can see here, I like my new “Dragon Ball Z” T-shirt a lot and I will be wearing it many times in the future.  Thank you, Michael Spicer, for getting me a classy T-shirt for my 33rd birthday.

Next time, I will give you a chance to revisit some more of my blog posts from my blog’s third year.  I wrote the posts in the summer of 2017.

My New Maestro’s Barber Shop T-Shirt

During the second half of my blog’s fifth year, I will give you a chance to revisit some of my past blog posts. Today, I will give you a chance to revisit a post from my blog’s third year … and it’s from May 2017. The post is entitled “My New Maestro’s Barber Shop T-Shirt.”

Now, two days before I wrote this blog post, I got my black Maestro’s Barber Shop T-shirt after I had gotten my haircut that morning. The T-shirt is fantastic … and I have worn it several times since I got it just over two years ago. On the front of the shirt, you can see the logo for Maestro’s Barber Shop … and you can see a bigger logo on the back of the shirt. The barber shop’s phone number is on the back of the shirt … and I covered up the number so that I could show you the back of the shirt safely. I had gone to Maestro’s Barber Shop for more than three years as a customer, but I haven’t gone there since October of 2018, but I do go past it every chance I get. I’m currently going to Fella’s Barbershop in McDonald, but I may consider going back to Maestro’s Barber Shop in the future. The barbers there are fantastic … and I actually went to South Fayette High School with Tony Talotta, who owns the barber shop. Even though I’m not going to Maestro’s Barber Shop as a customer at this time, I will continue to support it for a long time and I will continue to wear the shirt whenever I possibly can.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around May 22nd in previous years …

I would like to thank my friend, Tony Talotta, for allowing me to purchase this T-shirt after I was able to get my haircut earlier this week.  He did a great job in making this shirt.

Celebrating more than 10 years of friendship

During the second half of my blog’s fifth year, I will give you a chance to revisit some of my posts from my blog’s fifth year. Today, I will give you another chance to revisit a post from my blog’s third year. I wrote the post in January of 2007 and it’s entitled “Celebrating 10 years of friendship.”

In the blog post, I was talking about my 10-year friendship with Justin McKean. We became friends at South Fayette High School on January 23, 2007 … and he was one of the three substitute teachers that I had on that day. All three of my regular teachers were off on that day. Since then, we keep in touch with each other as often as possible. Over the past 12 years, I have talked with him in e-mails and on Social Media … and I do bump into him in person either once or twice a year, mainly at our local festivals. He is also able to be cool, casual and classy on some occasions … and, in some ways, he has inspired me to follow suit in a way. Since I wrote this blog post more than two years ago, Justin is currently not a fellow WordPress blogger like he was back in early 2017. That may change in the future. All in all, Justin is a terrific friend … and I will try to bump into him at least one time this Summer.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around May 17th in previous years …

Joseph Pratt's Interests And Some Other Things

Ten years ago today, I became friends with one of the coolest and classiest people that I have ever known … and his name is Justin McKean.  On that day, he was one of the three substitute teachers that I had while I went to South Fayette High School on that day.

Since January 23, 2007, Justin has been my teacher, my friend and also my fellow blogger … and we still keep in touch with each other regularly.  We also bump into each other once or twice a year at local festivals.

Back in July of 2016, I bumped into Justin at McSummerfest … and we took a selfie while we were there one evening.

Joseph Is Still “Built For The Wild” One Year Later!

Just over one year ago, I bought my camouflaged Yeti shirt at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx … and I’m still “Built For The Wild” one yera later.  I have worn the shirt a few times over the past year … and it gives me class whenever I wear it.  I liked it so much, I talked one of my friends into buying one … and his name is Derek Cryblskey.  The shirts give us class … and I actually talked about Derek in two of my blog posts last year.  So, as you may have guessed, I am still “built for the wild” one year later.

I have been able to wear my camouflaged Yeti shirt with class for just over one year now.  I hope you guys like the shirt as much as I do.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around May 15th in previous years …
