Derek Papakie Turns 30 Today!

Today, I would like to wish my cousin, Derek Papakie, a happy 30th birthday.  Derek is one of the classiest people I have ever known.  He is both a fantastic friend and a terrific cousin … and he has been a terrific father since last July.

Now, in the first half of the 2010s, Derek and I were “twinning” a lot.  We would wear matching T-shirts, matching jackets, matching sandals, matching sports jerseys, matching hats and even matching polo shirts.

So, today, I would like to say “happy 30th birthday” to Derek Papakie.  Happy 30th birthday, Derek!

Say hello to Dom Lazzini

During the second half of my blog’s fifth year, I will give you chances to revisit some of my past blog posts … and, throughout the month of July, I will give you chances to revisit some posts from my blog’s fifth year. Today, I will let you revisit a post from May of 2019 … and it is entitled “Say hello to Dom Lazzini.”

On May 4, 2019, I went to South Fayette Stadium for the first time since I went to South Fayette High School in the 2000s. I went to a lacrosse game with one of my relatives late that morning. I wore my green South Fayette Lions Lacrosse pullover to the game … and my friend, Chuck Lazzini, wore his green top to the game as well. That was sort of planned. We also wore the tops to South Fayette Fire Hall just over two months earlier. Anyway, I bumped into Chuck Lazzini’s son, Dom, while I was there … and Dom was nice enough to appear in a photo with both me and Chuck while I was at South Fayette Stadium. Dom was literally surrounded by two classy people that day … and meeting Dom in person is an experience that I won’t soon forget. He is one of the classiest people that I have ever known.

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

Joseph Pratt's Interests And Some Other Things

Over the weekend, I saw a lacrosse game at South Fayette Stadium … and I really enjoyed it, even though one of South Fayette’s Lacrosse teams lost by one point in overtime.  I still like South Fayette’s Lacrosse team a lot.

I bumped into one of this blog’s followers, Chuck Lazzini, while I was at the game … and we both had our green lacrosse pullovers on while we were there.  Also, while I was at the game, I bumped into Chuck’s son, Dom.  Dom is a very classy person.  He’s also a classy lacrosse player.  He played for South Fayette’s lacrosse team in the past … and now he plays for Mount Union’s lacrosse team, which is located in Ohio.  I also wore my Mount Union shirt underneath of my top … and Chuck wore a Mount Union hat that morning.

I have my Yeti Coolers hat one year later!

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

One year ago, I purchased my blue and white Yeti Coolers hat at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx.  I like the hat a lot and I try to wear it as often as possible.  I will try to wear it many times this Summer.  I hope you guys like the hat as much as I do.

Joseph has owned the blue and white Yeti Coolers hat for one year. The hat is full of class!

This hat is fantastic … and it turns me into a classy person.  When I got it last year, I was able to wear it with my camouflaged Yeti shirt for a few hours one afternoon.  It’s a classy combination.

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 10th in previous years …

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For June 2019

June is almost here … and Summer will be here in less than one month.  Now, throughout the Summer, I will be celebrating my blog’s fifth anniversary by giving you some great surprises … and, while I do that, my blog’s features will be taking a well-deserved break until the Fall.  I guess you could say my features will literally be taking a Summer vacation.

Today, I will tell you about some of the blog posts that I’ll be writing down in June.  At least one of the posts may catch your eye.

One of my blog posts will be entitled “I still have my Colussy Chevrolet shirt one year later!”  Nearly one year ago, I got a blue and white Raglan shirt from Colussy Chevrolet, which was celebrating its 100th anniversary last year.  I still like the shirt and I will try to wear it at some point this Summer.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “I have my Yeti Coolers hat one year later!”  I purchased my blue Yeti Coolers hat at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx nearly one year ago.  I like it and I will try to wear it often this Summer.  The hat is very classy and I hope you guys like it also.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Joseph Remembers His Battle With Lyme Disease Three Years Later.”  In it, I will talk about me getting Lyme Disease from a tick bite three years ago.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “I’m Getting Ready To Celebrate My Blog’s Fifth Anniversary.”  I will be getting ready to celebrate my blog’s fifth anniversary on August 24th … and, in this post, I will be telling you how I’ll be celebrating the milestone.  The celebration will start on July 24th … and it will last for one month.  I will have lots of surprises for you guys between July 24th and August 24th.

I will write a two-part blog post in June … and it will be entitled “Joseph Visit Crazy Horse Coffee.”  In it, I will talk about my trips to Crazy Horse Coffee, which is located in Washington, PA.  The coffee shop is owned by a former veteran named James Bendel.  This coffee shop is fantastic.  I had a small decaffeinated latte while I was there.  Make sure you check this place out if you ride through Washington, PA, someday.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “6,000 Views And Counting.”  My blog will hit the 6,000-views mark at some point in June … and I will let you know as soon as we hit that milestone.

I will give my features a break in June … and, throughout the month of June, I will give you chances to revisit some blog posts from my blog’s fourth year.  Some of them may surprise you.

Also, I will give my computer a break for one week in June.  I will be doing that from around 7:00 p.m. on Friday, June 7th, until around 5:00 a.m. on Sunday, June 16th.  You will see two of these blog posts at different times between those two dates … and I may throw in a surprise in there at some point that week.

I hope you will check out at least one of my blog posts in June.  I’m sure at least one of them may catch your eye.

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 30th in previous years …

I have owned my orange camo hat for one year!

I am now able to use my computer again after giving it a break for several days.  I started using it again early this morning … and, today, I would like to talk about my orange camouflaged hat, which I have owned for one year.  The hat is from the Pennsylvania National Guard.  I have worn the hat several times over the past year … and, of course, I have been able to wear it with class every time.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around September 16th in previous years …

Joseph’s New Yeti Coolers Hat

I have been working at the T.J. Maxx store in Bridgeville for 11 years … and, over the years, I have discovered millions of interesting items … and I’ve had the privilege of being able to buy some of the items that I see there.  Well, on June 8, 2018, I was able to buy two more classy items after I finished working at T.J. Maxx … and I’m gonna talk about one of the items now.  I’ll talk about the other item in the next blog post.

Today, I’m gonna talk about my new blue Yeti Coolers hat.  I really like the hat a lot.  The hat was only six dollars at the T.J. Maxx store in Bridgeville.  The hat is full of class.  The hat is light blue … and there’s also a little rope on the front part of the hat.

I really like this hat a lot … and I will be wearing it many times in the future.  As you can see in one of these photos, I was able to wear it with my Yeti shirt just hours after I purchased the shirt … and I will wear both the Yeti shirt and the Yeti hat together many times in the future.  This hat is full of class!

Joseph’s New Classy Hat

One week ago, I received a present from one of my friends … and it was a rather classy item.  It was an orange camouflaged hat from the Pennsylvania National Guard.  The hat is actually from Mossy Oak, but the hat says “Pennsylvania National Guard” on it.  The hat is very classy, in my opinion.  I would like to thank my friend, Chuck Lazzini, who is also one of my blog’s followers, for giving me one of those hats last week.  I really like this hat a lot … and I’ll be wearing it many times in the future.
