Joseph’s Flashback: I thought it was just a train ride!

In 1998, I went to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, with my relatives … and I was able to visit the Magic Kingdom while I was there.  Now, I have ridden on train rides at various amusement parks for as long as I can remember … and I did see a train ride while I was at Disney World.  It’s called the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.  The ride is in the Frontierland section of the Magic Kingdom.

Well, innocently enough, I go on what looks like a train ride, but not long after I get on the so-called “train ride,” I find out that I’m actually on a … roller coaster!  Can you believe that?!  Now, I had never ridden on a roller coaster in my life until then … and I have not ridden on one since I rode on the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at Disney World 21 years ago.

Will I ride on another roller coaster again?  I don’t think so!

Joseph Likes “The Brady Bunch!”

50 years ago today, “The Brady Bunch” premiered on television for the first time.  In honor of this special milestone, I’d like to tell you about my experiences of being a fan of this classic TV show.  I would watch the show on Nick at Nite several nights a week whenever I was a teenager … and, then, I would watch it on various other cable TV channels for a few more years after that, including Hallmark Channel, TV Land and Me TV.  This show is one of the best shows of all time … and the show’s characters are all fantastic.

Currently, you can watch “The Brady Bunch” on Sundays from noon until 2 p.m. on Me TV.  You may see an episode that you really like at some point in that time frame.  Now, I don’t really have a favorite character on the show, but I do have a favorite episode of the show … and that would be “Greg Gets Grounded” from the show’s fourth season.  There’s one part of the show that I could relate to in a way.  About halfway through the show, Greg wants his parents to use “exact words” with him so that he would know exactly what they were saying … and, in my case, I would tell my relatives and my friends to use “exact words” with me since I’m autistic.  That’s because autistic people like myself want people to speak with them as clearly as possible, so I can relate to that part of “Greg Gets Grounded” in a big way.

So, today, I would like to wish “The Brady Bunch” a happy 50th anniversary!  Is there an episode of the show that you like … and do you have a favorite character on the show?  Leave a comment if you have a favorite “Brady Bunch” character and/or a favorite “Brady Bunch” episode.

Joseph wants to show you his new bathroom again!

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 let you revisit some of the blog posts that I wrote down in the Summer of 2017 … and they are all about my new bathroom.

In the Summer of 2017, we were remodeling our bathroom for about 2 1/2 weeks … and, during that time, we had to use the restroom downstairs … and, yes, that meant we had to do that in the middle of the night as well. I talked about my new bathroom in some of my blog posts nearly two years ago. I still like our new bathroom nearly two years later … and I hope you guys do as well. It looks fantastic. We were able to put it to use right after The Fourth Of July back in 2017.

I would like to show you some of the other blog posts that I wrote down in the Summer of 2017 … and, in them, I’m talking about our new bathroom …

You’re probably wondering why I have a picture of our new bathroom door in this blog post.  Well, in this blog post, I’m gonna talk about our new bathroom … and it can be found right behind our new bathroom door.  I’m trying to build a little suspense for you guys here.

Without further ado, let me show you our new bathroom.  We have been remodeling it for about 2 1/2 weeks … and, today, I’d like you guys to see it for yourselves.

Joseph’s Flashback: Joseph goes to Pizza Capri in McDonald!

McDonald is a terrific town and it is located in Washington County … and I have gone to that place many times in my lifetime.  The town has some fantastic restaurants, including Pizza Capri, which has been in McDonald for many years.  I don’t know how long it is been there for, but I do know it has been in the town for as long as I can remember.  It’s a fantastic pizza shop … and I went there quite a bit whenever I was younger back in the ’90s.  At the time, it was on East Lincoln Avenue in McDonald.  Another pizza shop is currently in the building that once housed Pizza Capri … and, now, you can find Pizza Capri on Route 980 in the heart of McDonald.  The food there is fantastic … and I would like to go there again at some point in the future.  When I went there in the ’90s, they didn’t have breakfast items … and, now, they have breakfast items.  Maybe I can go there for breakfast someday … or maybe I can get pizza there someday.

Next time, I will write my 1,125th blog post … and I will give you a hint.  The blog post will be about a very classy thing.

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 20th in previous years …

Joseph’s Flashback: Joseph stayed at the Pittsburgh Airport Marriott!

In the Fall of 1987, a Marriott hotel first opened up its doors along the Parkway West near Pittsburgh International Airport in Findlay Township.  The hotel is located at the corner of Aten Road and Montour Run Road.  It has almost always been a Marriott hotel … and, a few years ago, it was a Wyndham hotel for a while.

Now, when I was younger, I would visit the hotel several times.  I once toured the place with a relative … and I would also spend some nights at the hotel with my relatives.  I would mainly do that in the Winter months.  The rooms there are fantastic … and they also have a great indoor swimming pool.  It also has a whirlpool, a sauna and a fitness center.  They have an outdoor pool as well, but I have never been to it since it’s not open whenever me and my relatives stayed there in the Wintertime.  I also ate in the hotel’s restaurant … and the food there was fantastic.  Also, while I was in the hotel’s indoor pool a few years ago, I may have been able to see members of the New England Patriots coming into the hotel.  It was an exciting moment for me.

I like this hotel a lot … and I hope I can visit it again soon as an overnight guest.  I rode past the hotel recently … and I noticed that they put in a Dunkin’ Donuts in front of the hotel.  The hotel is very classy!

Next time, I will give you a chance to revisit one of my blog posts from my blog’s second year.

Joseph’s Flashback: Joseph Meets A Disc Jockey At The Mall At Robinson!

I have been to The Mall at Robinson many times since it opened in October of 2001 … and I went there on the day that it first opened its doors, which is October 26, 2001.  I have met my friends and my relatives there many times over the past 17 1/2 years … and I may have met a famous person or two there during that time period.

One of those famous people is Dan Dunlap, who was a disc jockey at WISH 99.7 from 1986 until 2014.  I met him at The Mall at Robinson several times over the years … and I have gotten my picture taken with him almost every single time.  WISH 99.7 is the adult contemporary station in Pittsburgh, by the way.

Joseph has met former WISH 99.7 disc jockey Dan Dunlap at The Mall at Robinson several times over the years … and he has gotten his photo taken with him just about every time. This photo is from December of 2012.

Where’s Cuddy? It’s covered in fog!

During the second half of my blog’s fifth year, I’m going to give you a chance to revisit some of my past blog posts.

In March of 2015, I talked about a fog-covered Cuddy in a blog post. I snapped a photo of Cuddy while it was covered in fog … and you could only see the bare trees in the photo. At that time, I may have snapped one of the scariest photos ever. I think it was possibly the scariest photo that I ever took. It looked like something out of a scary movie a little bit.

Tomorrow, you will get a chance to revisit the last blog post that I wrote down during my blog’s first year.

On March 10, 2015, Cuddy was covered in fog.  All you can see in this picture are many bare trees! On March 10, 2015, Cuddy was covered in fog. All you can see in this picture are many bare trees!

Earlier this week, the town of Cuddy was completely covered in fog. In this picture, you can see the bare trees, but you can’t see Cuddy at all. I took this picture at around 6:00 on Tuesday evening … and the fog completely covered up Cuddy. In my opinion, this might be one of the scariest pictures that I ever took, but then again, I’m entitled to my opinion.

Blog Post Number 1,075 Is About A Terrific Disc Jockey

I am writing my 1,075th blog post today … and it will be a terrific disc jockey.  This disc jockey works at a local radio station … and I had the chance to meet him in McDonald back in 2013.

The disc jockey’s name is Kenny Woods and he’s a disc jockey at 101.5 WORD-FM, which is a Christian radio station in Pittsburgh.  He also worked at 3WS in Pittsburgh in the ’90s … and I would sometimes listen to him on there.  Believe it or not, whenever he did his show on 3WS Back then, you would sometimes hear Rick Sebak say, “He’s a world-class authority on amusement parks,” which is from his show, “Kennywood Memories.”  It was probably a play on words or something like that.  Well, Kenny may not be an amusement park expert, but he is my second favorite Pittsburgh disc jockey ever, behind only former WISH 99.7 disc jockey Dan Dunlap.
