Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For April 2020

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.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Happy 3rd Birthday, Ezra!”  Ezra is the son of my cousin, Sarah Smith, and Tim Smith, who is Mr. Classy’s “stand-in.”  I will wish Ezra a happy birthday in a blog post in April.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Jay Papuga Is A Very Classy Friend Of Mine.”  I will talk about my friend, Jay Papuga, in a blog post in April.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “I still have my grey and black Puma jacket two years later!”  I will talk about my grey and black Puma jacket in a blog post in April.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Blog Post Number 1,350 Is About A Classy Jacket!”  In my 1,350th blog post, I will talk about one of my jackets.  I can’t tell you which jacket it will be about, but I’ll give you a hint.  It won’t be about my grey and black Puma jacket.  I will actually talk about it in one of the blog posts that I just mentioned before.  It will be about a jacket that’s just as classy as that Puma jacket is.

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

Joseph’s Flashback-Our house was partially empty for years before we bought it!
Joseph Has A Question For You-Should Joseph go to DeBlaze Grill for his birthday this year?
Joseph’s Moment Of Peace-Joseph’s Hand Creams
Let’s Talk About A Past Blog Post-My green and yellow Brasil jacket

I hope you guys will check out at least one of my blog posts in April … and I hope you guys will continue to stay home and stay safe during the Coronavirus Outbreak.  We will do our best to get through it together.  Enjoy your day!

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!

Is this grey Michael Kors jacket classy or what?

Before I start my vacation this evening, I would like to talk about the first jacket that turned me into “Mr. Classy” … and that would be my grey Michael Kors jacket.  I have owned this jacket since December of 2015 … and, several days after I bought it, it would start turning me into “Mr. Classy” every time I would wear it.  Now, “Mr. Classy” is in his fifth year … and I will continue to call myself “Mr. Classy” whenever I wear the grey Michael Kors jacket.  “Mr. Classy” also has the black leather jacket from Vintage Leather, the grey Nike half-zip pullover and the light wash denim jacket from Brooklyn Cloth Company.  “Mr. Classy” will add a fifth item to his wardrobe in a matter of days … and I can’t tell you what it will be just yet.  You’ll have to wait a while to find out what item it will be.

Is this grey Michael Kors jacket classy or what?

Now, from 7:00 this evening until 5:00 a.m. on Sunday, February 2nd, I will give my computer a break … and, next week, I will write two fantastic blog posts for you guys.  I will use one of my blog’s features in one of my blog posts next week.  Enjoy your day, my friends!

As I wrap up this blog post, I would like to give a special thanks to two people who have been able to be Mr. Classy’s “stand-ins” … and they are Jonathan Reed and Tim Smith.  They have been able to wear the grey Michael Kors jackets with class each and every time.

My friend, Shane Trylko, Is Full Of Class!

In March of 2014, I was able to become a true friend of Shane Trylko’s.  Before that, we may have been cousins or something like that, but for nearly six years now, we have been both cousins and friends.  I was able to bump into him in person in 2014 at least twice.  I bumped into him here at my house in March of 2014 … and then, five months later, I bumped into him again at my uncle’s 50th birthday party.  That would be Nicholas Papakie, Jr., of course.

Now, whenever I first became Shane’s friend in March of 2014, I was able to give him a rather classy jacket.  I had purchased this jacket at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx a few days earlier … and it was the subject of one of my first blog posts ever.  I wrote it back in September of 2014.  Now, that jacket would be the green and yellow Brasil jacket.  I also bought that jacket for myself … and, whenever Shane visited us at my home, I gave him his jacket … and he liked it as much as I do.  The green and yellow Brasil jackets became our “friendship jackets” since we were both terrific friends.

After I left Fella’s Barber Shop in McDonald on Thursday morning, I was able to bump into Shane there.  I had just finished getting my haircut whenever I bumped into Shane.  It was the first time that I had seen Shane in person since August of 2014.  He is a very classy friend indeed.

I still have my Nike Air jacket one year later!

Back in October of 2018, I got a black and white Nike Air jacket in the mail, but, since I ordered it as a “Christmas present,” I was not allowed to have it full-time for more than two months.  I like the jacket so much, I was able to buy one for my uncle, whose name is Thomas Papakie, as a Christmas present as well.  We both got them for Christmas last year … and we both still like them nearly one year later.  We will continue to wear them in the future.

Joseph Has A Classy FILA Jacket

Today, I am writing my 1,275th blog post for you guys.  You may have noticed that I don’t have the number 1,275 in the title of this blog post.  That’s because I wanted it to be a surprise this time around.  Well, let me tell you what that “surprise” is.  On December 20, 2019, I purchased a classy grey FILA jacket at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx.  Believe it or not, the jacket was too good to pass up … and I was able to buy one after I completed my shift at the store that afternoon.  The jacket is very classy … and it goes nicely with blue jeans and very classy dress pants.  It may also be worn with cargo shorts … and it should never be worn with gym shorts or sweat pants.

This is my new grey FILA jacket. This jacket is very classy … and I purchased it at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx on December 20, 2019.

I hope you guys like this grey FILA jacket as much as I do.  This is one of the classiest jackets that I have ever purchased.  I plan on wearing it often in 2020.

I have owned my grey Michael Kors jacket for four years now!

On the afternoon of December 7, 2015, I purchased a grey Michael Kors jacket at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx … and, overtime, it has become my favorite jacket of all time.  Several days later, the jacket would start turning me into “Mr. Classy” whenever I would wear it.  I would like to say thank you for allowing me to have a classy jacket for four years.  This is actually my favorite jacket of all time.

I would like to give a special thanks to Bryan Gogarty, Joe Cohen, Jonathan Reed and Tim Smith for being able to wear the grey Michael Kors jacket at various times over the past four years.  Two of those people became Mr. Classy’s “stand-ins” … and they both did a fantastic job in wearing the grey MK jacket with class.  I would also like to thank my friend, Jeff Mooney, who used to work with me at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx, for inspiring me to make a classy decision in buying the grey Michael Kors jacket … and for allowing me to have a classy moniker like “Mr. Classy.”

“‘Mr. Classy’ says, ‘see you all later!'”

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For December 2019

The month of December is already here.  That means 2019 is almost over … and, in a few weeks, it will be 2020.  I will be giving my features a break this month, but I will bring them back in both the new year and the new decade.  Today, I will tell you about the blog posts that I’ll be writing down in December.

One blog post will be entitled “I still have my Nike Air jacket one year later!”  I will talk about my black and white Nike Air jacket … and I will tell you why I still like it one year later.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “I am still stylish in my Christmas sweater one year later!”  I will talk about my red Boston Terrier sweater, which I have owned for almost one year now.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “Joseph needs some false teeth!”  This past Tuesday, I got two of my upper teeth removed … and I may need some false teeth in the future.  They would go on my upper teeth.  Maybe I can get either flexible partial dentures or dental implants.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “I have owned my Motorola smartphone for two years!”  I will talk about my phone in the blog posts.

Another one of my posts will be entitled ” I have had a cardigan sweater for two years!”  I will talk about my grey cardigan sweater, which I bought at the now-closed Sears store at South Hills Village, nearly two years ago.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “I have owned my grey Michael Kors jacket for four years now!”  I will talk about my favorite jacket, which I have owned for nearly four years now.  It would turn me into “Mr. Classy” just days after I bought it at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx in December of 2015.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “I am still a ‘Macho Man’ two years later!”  I will talk about my purple Macho Man shirt, which I have owned for nearly two years.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “Joseph Recovers From His Oral Surgery.”  I will talk about the day that I recovered from my most recent oral surgery.  I recovered from it for a few hours this past Tuesday.  It was a quick recovery, to say the least.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “Happy birthday, Nicholas Ciesielski!”  I will wish my friend, Nicholas Ciesielski, a happy 34th birthday in a blog post on December 8th.

I will also give you a two-part blog post entitled “Joseph’s Top Blog Posts Of 2019” in December.  In it, I will give you the top blog posts of the year.

If everything goes well, I will write a blog post entitled “‘Mr. Classy’ and his ‘stand-in’ now have extra class!”  I was supposed to write the blog post in November, but “Mr. Classy” and his “stand-in” were not able to have extra class then.  Hopefully, that will change this month.

I hope you will like the blog posts that I’ll be giving you as we wrap up both a great year and a fantastic decade.  Hopefully at least one of these blog posts will catch your eye.

Joseph Has A Question For You: Which one of these four items look the classiest on “Mr. Classy?”

For nearly four years now, “Mr. Classy” has been able to keep his friends and his “fans” as classy as possible with fashion tips and ways to incorporate more manners into their lives.  Well, in today’s blog post, “Mr. Classy” is turning the tables.  He wants you to give him a fashion tip or two.  He has four jackets … and they are the grey Michael Kors jacket, the light wash denim jacket from Brooklyn Cloth Company, the black leather jacket from Vintage Leather and the grey Nike half-zip pullover.

So, here is my question … which one of these four items look the classiest on “Mr. Classy?”

Let’s Talk About A Past Blog Post: Joseph’s Nike Air Jacket

Today, I would like to talk about a blog post that I wrote down in December of 2018.  The post is entitled “Joseph’s Nike Air Jacket.”  In it, I talked about my black and white Nike Air jacket, which I got for Christmas, more than two months after my mother ordered it for me online.  I said that I would wear it many times in 2019 … and I did just that.  I was inspired to write this blog post because I wanted to talk about a classy jacket like the black and white Nike Air jacket.  My uncle, Thomas Papakie, and my friend, Shawn Landy, have this jacket as well … and they wear it with class just like I do.  I also got to revisit the post back in July as I was celebrating my blog’s fifth anniversary.

This jacket is perfect for classy people like me, my uncle and my friend.

Here’s the link to my blog post …
