Joseph’s 1,000th Blog Post

During the second half of my blog’s fifth year, I will give you chances to revisit some of my past blog posts … and, during the month of July, I will give you chances to revisit some of my blog posts from my blog’s fifth year. Today, I will let you revisit my 1,000th blog post, which is from November of 2018.

On November 15, 2018, I wrote my 1,000th blog post here on my blog … and, during most of the first half of November of 2018, I was going down the road to my 1,000th blog post by showing you guys some of the milestones that I have reached on my blog throughout its history. I will include those blog posts as well.

Well, anyway, let me tell you about my 1,000th blog post, which was about my friend, Justin McKean. It wasn’t easy for me to choose a topic for the big blog post, considering that I had to think about topics that may be interesting for a blog post like this one. I just wanted to dedicate this blog post to Justin McKean, who has been a friend for me for 12 years now. He’s one of the classiest friends I have ever known. Again, I would like to thank Justin for allowing me to make him the subject of my 1,000th blog post.

I will also include the blog posts that went to the end of my “road” to my 1,000th blog post back in November.

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 9th in previous years …

Joseph Pratt's Interests And Some Other Things

Well, ladies and gentlemen, this is it.  Today is a big day for me and for my blog.  I am writing my 1,000th blog post on my blog … and, as I’ve been saying for weeks now, it could be about a person, a place or a thing.  Well, after giving this a lot of thought. I’ve decided that my 1,000th blog post will be about a person.

FB_IMG_1542273586651 This is Joseph’s 1,000th blog post. He has this sign to prove it.

My 1,000th blog post will be about a classy friend of mine … and this friend is cool, casual and classy in many ways.  The person’s name is Justin McKean.  I first became friends with him while I was at South Fayette High School back on January 23, 2007.  He was one of the three substitute teachers that I had while I was at the school back then.  For…

Our new bathroom is two years old!

Two years ago today, we started using our new bathroom for the first time … and I still like it a lot.  It looks fantastic two years after we started using it.  I hope you guys still like it as much as we do.

Brady Has Been With Us For Just Over Three Months Now!

On March 30, 2019, Brady, who is our brown and white English Bulldog, came to our house for the first time … and, for just over three months or so, Brady has become a terrific part of our family.  Brady is a fantastic puppy, but he does lots of things that puppies do.  He is a biter.  He bites my relatives and he chews on things he’s not supposed to chew on, but he’s still a terrific puppy, nonetheless.  He has a lot of toys … and he sometimes likes to play with empty water bottles.

Sometimes, I’m able to watch Brady indoors for at least a few minutes in the mornings … and, if I’m able to watch it in the living room during that time, I’m usually able to do it with confidence, but I will also watch it outdoors whenever I possibly can during that same time frame.  I can honestly say that Brady keeps me busy almost every day, but I sometimes enjoy watching him.  I just have to watch what he does regularly.

Brady is becoming a big star on my Social Media sites.  My friends and my other relatives like Brady as much as I do.  They love to see Brady in action whenever they have the time to do so.

Thank you, Brady, for being a big part of our lives for just over three months.  You have become a true member of our family!

50,000 Miles In Ten Years

For ten years now, we have owned a red 2009 Chevrolet Equinox here at our house … and we bought it at a Pittsburgh-area Chevrolet dealership whenever it first came out at the dealership in 2009.  A few weeks ago, the car reached a milestone.  It hit the 50,000-mile mark on the odometer … and the car can celebrate its tenth year in a big way.

In the Spring of 2019, our red 2009 Chevrolet Equinox hit the 50,000-mile mark … and, whenever I snapped this photo on April 15, 2019, the car had 50,091 miles on it. Obviously, it has gained a lot of miles on the odometer since I snapped the photo.

5,500 Views And Counting

On March 19, 2019, my blog hit the 5,500-views mark on the nose, nearly three months after it hit the 5,000-views mark on the nose.  My blog has been getting some good numbers in recent months, so it allowed me to hit the 5,500-views mark relatively quickly.  If this trend continues, my blog may hit the 6,000-views mark before my blog turns five years old on August 24th.  Of course, I will let you know when and if that does happen.

This week, you will get two chances to revisit my past blog posts.  Tomorrow, I will give you a chance to revisit one of my blog posts from my blog’s first year.  I will give you a hint right now.  It will have to do with fog.  Then, on Wednesday, I will give you a chance to revisit the last blog post that I wrote down during my blog’s first year.

Enjoy your day, my friends!

Let’s Talk About A Past Blog Post: Joseph’s 1,000th Blog Post

In November of 2018, I wrote my 1,000th blog post on my blog … and I talked about my friend, Justin McKean, in the blog post.  It was hard for me to choose a topic for that big blog post, so I ended up talking about one of the classiest friends I have ever known.  I wanted to dedicate my 1,000th blog post to a terrific person … and, in a way, Justin may have inspired me to write my 1,000th blog post down.  He’s one of the classiest people I have ever known.  I wanted to dedicate this blog post to him.

Blog Post Number 1,050 Is About My “Super” Uncle

I will not be using my computer until Saturday, February 2nd.  I will try to give you guys some terrific blog posts while I give my computer a break this week.

Today, I’m writing my 1,050th blog post on my blog … and it will be about my “super” uncle, whose name is Thomas Papakie.  I’m calling him a “super” uncle because he has a grey Superman shirt , just like I do.  We were able to wear them with class right before Christmas in 2018.
