Last week, I told you guys the name of the restaurant that I would be going to on my 32nd birthday, which will be on May 1st. The name of the restaurant is … Bubba’s Gourmet Burghers And Beer, which is located in South Fayette. I have gone there with my relatives back in August of 2014, just days after I started this blog. This is not the first time that I have eaten here. It will be the second time that I will be able to eat at this restaurant. Who knows? I may get one of Bubba’s “Burghers” while I’m there, but I’m not sure yet. I may get something interesting while I’m there. The restaurant is named after a local disc jockey named Bubba Snider, who does a show on Star 100.7 here in Pittsburgh.
Can you believe it? The month of April is here … and, in just a few short weeks, I will turn 32. Well, today, I’m gonna tell you about the blog posts that I’ll be writing down in April.
One of my blog posts will be entitled “Happy 30th Birthday, Sarah!” On April 26th, my cousin, Sarah Smith, will turn 30 years old … and I will talk about the event in a blog post then.
A few days ago, I wrote a blog post entitled “‘Mr. Classy’ Goes To Pittsburgh” … and, in it, I talked about Mr. Classy’s first trip to Pittsburgh. Well, on April 4th, he will take another trip to Pittsburgh … and, at some point in April, I will write a blog post entitled “‘Mr. Classy’ Goes To Pittsburgh Again!” It will be about Mr. Classy’s second trip to the Steel City.
Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “An ‘ode’ to a classy person named Jay.” It’s about a friend of mine, whose first name is Jay. I won’t tell you who it is yet, but I will do it in a blog post at some point this month.
I will also write my 850th blog post in April … and, in it, I will make an announcement about the future of my blog.
I will also use my features in four of my blog posts this month. Let me tell you how I will be using them this time around.
Joseph’s Flashback-We were the only ones in the movie theater?!
Joseph Has A Question For You-Should Joseph wash “My Pillow” this month?

Let’s Talk About A Past Blog Post-I’m no longer in the “Lyme” light
I hope you guys will be able to check out at least one of the blog posts that I’ll be writing down in April. They may catch your eye. Enjoy your Easter!
Back in September of 2017, I wrote a blog post entitled “An ‘ode’ to ‘Captain Cool'” … and, in it, I talked about my friend “Captain Cool,” whose real name is Chuck Lazzini, one of my blog’s followers.
Well, today, I’ve decided to write another “ode” in a blog post. This time, it’s about a friend of mine named Zach Teagarden. We became friends on the evening of March 17, 2017 … and we were both at Victor Papakie’s funeral that evening.
On some occasions, I was able to speak to him in one of the rooms at the funeral home for a few minutes at a time. Since then, Zach has become one of the classiest friends that I have ever known. I haven’t bumped into him since then, but, hopefully, I can do that soon.
Keep being classy, Zach!
Today, I’m writing blog post number 837 on my blog … and, today, the blog post will be about one of the Pittsburgh area’s best roadways … and that would be Route 837. I have ridden on this roadway many times over the years. I have never ridden on the entire length of Route 837 before in my life, but, of course, I have ridden on parts of the roadway over the course of my life. I haven’t done that recently, but I have done it many times in my short life. I have also ridden on that roadway whenever I went to Kennywood Park with my friends and my relatives. I really like Route 837 a lot … and I will be riding on it again in the future. Who knows? Maybe you guys will see me riding on it someday.
Six months ago, before I began my shift at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx one morning, I bumped into Mark McKnight, who went to South Fayette High School with me in the 2000s. I wrote a blog post about that event back in September … and it was called “Say hello to my friend, Mark McKnight.”
Well, just over six months later, I’m gonna wish my friend, Mark, a happy birthday in a blog post. He’s one of the classiest friends that I have ever known.
5 1/2 years ago, me and Michael Spicer have been “super” friends … and we have actually been “super” neighbors for more than 5 1/2 years. He may have also been one of my neighbors whenever Pauline Danesky was still on National Hill. Either way, that’s a long time.
Well, anyway, Michael and I are “super” neighbors … and we have our grey Superman T-shirts to prove it. The shirts make us look classy and “super.”
A few weeks ago, while I was at the Bob Evans restaurant in Bridgeville, I bumped into a teacher that I had not seen in over 10 years. Well, yesterday, while I was at Colussy Chevrolet in Bridgeville, I bumped into a teacher that I had not seen since at least the late ’90s. He was actually one of my teachers at South Fayette Middle School. In fact, some of my relatives had him while they were in school as well. Two of those people are regular followers of my blog. That teacher’s name is John Petersavage, who is also known as “Mr. Pete” to his students and some of his fellow teachers and workers.
It’s always exciting whenever I get to bump into people at various places in and around the Pittsburgh area. You never know who I might be bumping into next. It might be someone that I hadn’t seen since … the 1980s.
Yesterday, I marked the three-year anniversary of the death of my bulldog, Piglet, by showing you photos of my bulldog. I also showed you her pink stone and her urn.
Today, I’m going to show you the final resting places of my late pets … and their names are Piglet, who was my bulldog, and Beau, who was my white shaggy dog.
First, I’m going to show you Piglet’s urn. I also included it in a blog post that I wrote down two years ago. It was about the first anniversary of Piglet’s death … and it was also my 350th blog post.
Second, I’d like to show you Beau’s final resting place. It’s very close to our backyard. I sometimes visit it whenever I take my walks outdoors. I also talked about it in one of my blog posts. I wrote it down back in September of 2016 … and it was in one of my blog’s features, which is called “Joseph’s Moment Of Peace.”
I will remember most of these dogs for a long time. As soon as the weather starts to get warmer, I will visit their final resting places … and I will say hello to them.
Three years ago, my bulldog, Piglet, passed away at the age of 12. I will miss her a lot. She almost always knew how to put a smile on my face.
I have a lot of photos of Piglet … and they’re all over the house. I talk about her every chance I get. She will always be a fantastic dog.
