Mr. Classy’s failed “stand-ins”

These people didn’t really fail when they were trying out to become one of Mr. Classy’s regular “stand-ins.”  They just turned down their chances to become one of his “stand-ins.”  “Mr. Classy” almost always wears the grey Michael Kors jacket … and, back in 2016, he allowed two people to have the chance to become one of Mr. Classy’s “stand-ins.”

First, in September of 2016, I turned my friend, Joe Cohen, into one of Mr. Classy’s “assistants” while I was at Bee’z Bistro and Pub one evening.  He did a fantastic job as one of his possible “stand-ins,” but he turned down the chance to become Mr. Classy’s regular “stand-in.”

Joseph and DJ Joe wore the grey Michael Kors jackets to Bee’z Bistro and Pub in September of 2016.  He turned down the chance to be one of Mr. Classy’s regular “stand-ins,” but he still did a fantastic job in being his “stand-in” for one evening.

Second, Bryan Gogarty, who worked with me at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx during the 2016 Holiday season, was able to turn into one of Mr. Classy’s possible “stand-ins” while we were in the store’s break room.  He did a fantastic job on the day that we wore the jackets, but he turned down the chance to be one of Mr. Classy’s regular “stand-ins.”

In December of 2016, Joseph and Bryan Gogarty, who worked with him at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx during the 2016 Holiday season, wore the grey Michael Kors jackets in the store’s break room. Bryan did a fantastic job in trying to be one of Mr. Classy’s “stand-ins,” but he turned down that chance.

Both Joe Cohen and Bryan Gogarty did a fantastic job in trying to be Mr. Classy’s regular “stand-ins,” but they turned down their chances to do just that.  Two of my friends have been able to be Mr. Classy’s “stand-ins” over the past two years … and they are Jonathan Reed and Tim Smith.

Will “Mr. Classy” have another “stand-in” in the future?  Maybe.  Stay tuned…

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around December 9th in previous years …

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

Three years ago today, I purchased my grey Michael Kors jacket at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx.  I really like this jacket … and I would like to say that this jacket is my favorite jacket ever.  Several days later, I would start turning into “Mr. Classy” whenever I would wear the jacket.  The jacket is full of class, of course, and I will be wearing it many times in 2019, if I’m up to it.

Next time, I will talk about Mr. Classy’s two “stand-ins” … and I will also talk about the people who turned down their chances to be Mr. Classy’s regular “stand-ins.”  They still did a fantastic job, though.

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For December 2018

The year 2018 is almost over, if you can believe that.  In just a few weeks, we will start the year 2019.  I will give my features another break in December, but I will bring them back in the new year.  Today, I’d like to tell you about the top blog posts for December 2018.

One of my blog posts will be entitled “We’ve owned our red truck for five years!”  We first purchased our red Chevrolet truck in December of 2013.  It replaced our blue Chevrolet truck, which was at our house from October of 1990 until September of 2013.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “I have owned my Motorola smartphone for one year!”  I will talk about my phone, which I have owned for almost one year now.  It says “Hello Moto!” sometimes.  It usually does that whenever someone is trying to call me on it.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “2018 is my blog’s best year yet!”  My blog has now been seen more than 1,300 times this year … and the number will rise before the year is over.  It will probably cross the 1400-views mark at some point in December.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “Joseph Has Had A Cardigan Sweater For One Year!”  I will tell you about my grey cardigan sweater, which I purchased at Sears almost one year ago.  It is very classy.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “Joseph’s Weekends Are Full Of Class!”  I will talk about some classy TV personalities, who generally appear on Pittsburgh’s TV stations on weekends.  Some of them are anchors … and some of them are reporters.  Some of these people may surprise you a little bit.

At around Christmas time, I will write a two-part blog post for you guys.  It will be entitled “Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For 2018.”  I will tell you about the year’s top blog posts in the two-part blog post.

I will write my 1,025th blog post down in December.  It could be about anything.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Good-bye, Sally Wiggin.”  She is retiring from WTAE this week … and I will talk about meeting her at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, which is located in Downtown Pittsburgh.  I did it in the late 2000s.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “Joseph’s Christmas Presents For 2018.”  I will talk about my Christmas presents in the blog post in December … and I will turn a few of my presents into blog posts in January.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “Joseph’s Nike Air Jacket.”  I will talk about the classy item in a blog post in December.

I hope you will check out my posts on my blog in December.  Thank you for checking out my blog in 2018 … and I hope you will continue to check out my blog in 2019.

Enjoy your day!

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

Will the real “Mr. Classy” please stand up?

Sadly, “Mr. Classy” and his “stand-in” were not in the same place on Thanksgiving Day; however, they were both able to celebrate the day.

Now, as you know, they have the grey Michael Kors jackets.  One of them is “Mr. Classy” and the other one is Tim Smith, who is Mr. Classy’s “stand-in.”  Only one of these people is the real “Mr. Classy.”  So, let me ask you this question … will the real “Mr. Classy” please stand up? (The answer is under the photo.)

“Mr. Classy” and his “stand-in” were able to wear the grey MK jackets with class on August 16, 2018. As you can see here, you can wear the grey MK jackets with either jeans or shorts.

Obviously, the real “Mr. Classy” is on the left.  His “stand-in” is on the right.

“Mr. Classy” has a pre-Thanksgiving treat for you!

As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving Day with our friends and our relatives tomorrow, I’d like to show you a little surprise.  “Mr. Classy” has a little pre-Thanksgiving treat for you.  For the first time ever, you will see “Mr. Classy” showing off both of his jackets in one photo.  Before that, you would see them in separate photos, but, in today’s blog posts, you’re gonna see both of Mr. Classy’s jackets in the same photo.  In the photo, he’s holding the grey Michael Kors jacket while he’s wearing the leather jacket, which is from Vintage Leather.

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For November 2018

November is almost here already … and, before you know it, 2018 will be coming to an end.  At some point in November, I will write my 1,000th blog post down … and it could be about anything.  Since I will be celebrating this milestone throughout the first half of November, I will be giving my features my break in November.  Also, as I prepare to write my 1,000th blog post in just a matter of days, I will write a 10-part blog post, which will be entitled “Joseph’s Road To His 1,000th Blog Post.”  In it, I will talk about my blog’s biggest milestones ever.  If everything goes according to plan, I will being my “road” to my 1,000th blog post on Thursday.

Of course, after I write my 1,000th blog post in the middle of November and after I celebrate the milestone, I will give you some great blog posts along the way.  One of my blog posts will be entitled “An ‘ode’ to a friend named ‘Deek.'”  It will be about my friend Derek Cryblskey, who sometimes likes to be called “Deek.”

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “I have owned my leather jacket for one year!”  I’m referring to my black leather jacket, which is from Vintage Leather.  I purchased it on kohls.com just last year.  It’s one of two jackets that turns me into “Mr. Classy.”  The other jacket, of course, is the grey Michael Kors jacket.

“Mr. Classy” and the grey Michael Kors jacket will be the subjects of the blog post that I’m about to tell you about.  This post will be entitled “Will the real ‘Mr. Classy’ please stand up?”  This post will be about “Mr. Classy” and his “stand-in,” whose name is Tim Smith.  Hopefully, we can wear our jackets on Thanksgiving Day this year.  If we can’t do that, I will give you guys a back-up blog post instead.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Joseph Has Another Classy Item To Show You.”  I may buy another classy item at T.J. Maxx soon.  If I do buy the item, I will talk about it in this blog post.

I will give my blog a break for Halloween, but, beginning this Thursday, I will start my road to my 1,000th blog post.

I hope you guys will help me celebrate my 1,000th blog post in November … and I hope you will check out my 1,000th blog post when it does come out in the middle of November.  Don’t forget to check out my other blog posts throughout November as well.

Enjoy your day!

Joseph’s Halloween Costume For 2018

This blog post was originally supposed to be written on October 22, 2018, but, since my computer crashed on that day, I will write this blog post on October 26, 2018.  It was supposed to be my 982nd blog post, but now, it will be my 985th blog post.  Thank you for your understanding.

After giving this a lot of thought over the past several days, I have finally chosen the costume that I’ll be writing on Halloween night this year.

This year, I have decided that I will be a “swaggy weatherman” for Halloween this year.  I hope you guys will like the costume as much as I do.

Bring On The Puma Jackets!

Since the Spring of 2012, I have been able to own at least one Puma jacket … and, now, I have three of them.  One is a blue and white Agile jacket, one is a blue Clyde jacket and one is a grey and black fleece jacket.  The Puma jacket that I like the best is the grey and black Puma jacket, which I got as a birthday present back in April.  I like it a lot … and I was able to talk my friend, Michael Keehn, into buying one online at around the same time.  He likes it as much as I do.

We were supposed to wear the jackets to Hickory’s Apple Festival earlier this month, but it was too hot for us to do that.  We were able to wear them at our respective locations on October 13th.  The jackets are full of class and swag.  Hopefully, we can wear them somewhere soon.

Let’s Talk About A Past Blog Post: My new rain jacket

In September of 2016, I wrote a blog post entitled “My new rain jacket.”  In it, I talked about my blue and orange rain jacket, which is from Under Armour.  I like the jacket so much, I was able to buy one for my cousin, Derek Papakie, a few days later.  I gave his jacket to him in January of 2017 … and he likes his jacket as much as I like mine.  Since I wrote that blog post two years ago, I’ve worn the jacket a few times.  I was inspired to write this blog post because I really wanted my friends and my relatives to see how classy my jacket was.

Here’s the link to that blog post …
