Walking On The Weekend

Now, over the weekend, we had some fantastic weather here on National Hill … and today’s weather is fantastic as well.  Now, it was cold on Saturday morning … and then it warmed up just a little bit on Saturday afternoon.  Now, I was able to take two walks on Saturday afternoon.  I took the first one at around 2:30 … and, almost two hours later, I took my second walk that day.  I was able to finish my walks before 5:00 since I will not be walking outdoors after 5:00 p.m. on weekends anymore.

Now, yesterday, the weather was nice once again.  It was a chilly morning … and it was a very warm afternoon.  Now, again, I took my first walk of the afternoon at around 2:30 … and, almost two hours later, I took my second walk of the afternoon.  Again, I was able to finish my walks before 5:00 yesterday afternoon.

Now, when it comes to me walking on the weekends, I will have more leeway since I will have a little bit more free time than I have on weekdays.  I will be able to walk outdoors at various times between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on weekends … and, on weekdays, I will try to walk at different times between 8:15 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.  Now, that the days are getting longer and the weather is getting warmer, it will be hard for me to stay indoors past my cut-off times, but I will do my very best to do just that.  This way, everybody can relax better in the late afternoon and early evening hours.

This is Joseph’s Walking Schedule For 2020!

I have now figured out my walking schedule for 2020.  I am no longer taking my evening walks around National Hill.  Now, on weekdays, I will try to walk at various times between 8:15 in the morning and 2:30 in the afternoon.  Now, after 2:30, I will be inside of my home … and I will spend most of that time in my “computer room.”  I will be giving myself some “me time” during the 6:00 hour on weekday evenings.  Later this month, I will ask you guys what I should do in my “computer room” at 6:00 on weekday evenings, since I am not taking my evening walks anymore.

Now, on weekends, I will try to walk at different times between 8:00 in the morning and 5:00 in the afternoon.

Now, I will not be walking every day.  Sometimes, the weather might be bad … or I may just be too busy to walk outdoors in the first place.  If I am unable to walk outdoors on any given day, you will know why.

Of course, I will continue to walk to my mailbox on the days that we get mail.  I am not giving up my walks completely.  I’m just walking at different times of the day, that’s all.

Please enjoy the rest of your day, my friends!

Joseph is still “super” three years later!

Three years ago today, I got my grey Superman T-shirt … and I’ve worn it many times over the past three years.  I usually wear it with blue jeans and nice shorts, but I may have worn it with dress pants and white jeans as well.  No matter how I wear it, I always wear it with class.  I may wear it with sweatpants or gym shorts in the future.

I have owned this grey Superman T-shirt for three years … and I’ve worn it many times over the years. I have worn it with white jeans, dress pants, blue jeans and nice shorts … and, in the future, I may also wear it with sweatpants and gym shorts.

Me, and my neighbor, Michael Spicer, have worn our grey Superman shirts many times over the past three years.

Thomas Papakie, who is one of my uncles, was able to wear the grey Superman T-shirt with me back in December of 2018.  We both wore them with class back then.

On December 22, 2018, me and Thomas Papakie wore the grey Superman shirts with class. In this case, he’s a “super” uncle.

I still like my grey Superman shirt a lot … and I hope you guys do also.

Joseph’s 1,200th Blog Post Is Full Of Swag!

Today, as I begin to use my computer again for the first time in several days, I have reached another milestone on this blog.  I am writing my 1,200th blog post on this blog … and it will be about a classy person.  His name is Jook Greer, who is one of my neighbors on National Hill.

Jook is one of the classiest people that I have ever known … and, back in April, we were able to wear both the white 2017 Stanley Cup Champions T-shirts and the grey and black Puma jackets with class … and swag.  Well, actually, we just wore our shirts with class, but we did wear the jackets with both class and swag.

On April 8, 2019, Jook Greer and I posted for this selfie outdoors on National Hill. On that day, we wore our white 2017 Stanley Cup Champions shirts with class … and we wore our grey and black Puma jackets with both class and swag.

As you can see, Jook is both a classy neighbor and a swaggy friend.  He is also the subject of my 1,200th blog post.

Happy 45th Birthday, Michael Spicer!

During the second half of my blog’s fifth year, I’m going to give you some chances to revisit some of my past blog posts … and throughout the month of July, I will give you chances to revisit some of my posts from my blog’s fifth year. Today, before I begin to celebrate my blog’s fifth anniversary for a whole month, I’m going to let you revisit a post that I wrote down this past Friday … and it is entitled “Happy 45th Birthday, Michael Spicer!”

This past Friday, Michael Spicer, who is both my friend and my neighbor, turned 45 years old. Michael has been a friend of mine since 2012 … and he has been one of my neighbors on National Hill for more than 10 years now. Over the past 2 years or so, we were both able to wear the grey Superman shirts, the blue Dragon Ball Z T-shirts and the grey Zombie Hunter shirts outdoors. Michael has turned me into a terrific neighbor and a better friend over the years … and, as I was getting ready to start wrapping up my blog’s fifth year, I figured that Michael Spicer’s 45th birthday would be the perfect subject for the blog post that would wrap up my blog’s fifth year.

Now, tomorrow, I will get you guys ready to start celebrating my blog’s fifth anniversary, which will occur on August 24th … and, beginning on Wednesday, I will be spending an entire month celebrating my blog’s fifth anniversary by giving you some interesting statistics about my blog … and some of them may surprise you.

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 22nd in previous years …

Joseph Pratt's Interests And Some Other Things

Today, I would like to wish a terrific person named Michael Spicer a happy 45th birthday.  He is both my friend and my neighbor.  Michael is one of the classiest people I have ever known … and he’s also a “super” person.  On July 10, 2019, we wore our Zombie Hunter shirts outdoors for a few minutes that evening.  I would like to thank him for turning me into a better neighbor and a better friend.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Happy 45th birthday, Michael Spicer!”  I will be wishing Michael Spicer, who is both my friend and my neighbor, a happy 45th birthday in a blog post on July 19th.

I may be taking my evening walks again soon!

Late last year, I said that I would no longer take my evening walks around National Hill.  Well, I may rethink that idea in the future.  It actually came to me after I happened to bump into one of my neighbors in Great Southern Shopping Center on Friday morning.  Later that day, I would walk around National Hill for a few minutes … and I would do that a few times over the weekend.  While I was walking, I did some thinking … and, this week, I will be walking around National Hill at around 6:25 in the evening.  If it works, I may start walking at my old time again in the future.  So, obviously, at some point after the Fourth of July, I will start walking at around 5:00 on select afternoons … and I will do that mainly on weekdays.

IMG_20190617_182914311
On June 17, 2019, at around 6:30 in the evening, I took my first evening walk around National Hill in several months. I said that I would no longer take my evening walks late last year, but I may reinstate them on a regular basis in just a matter of days. Beginning right after the Fourth of July, I will walk at 5:00 on select afternoons, mainly on weekdays.

If you happen to see me walking outdoors one evening this Summer, please say hello to me … and make sure you speak to me in a respectful and friendly manner.

Next time, I will give you a chance to revisit two of my blog posts from my blog’s fourth year.  One is from April of 2018 … and one is from March of 2018.

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 18th in previous years …

Say hello to my friend, Jessica Asti

Last Sunday, at around 10:10 in the morning, I was leaving Heidelberg Shop ‘n Save after shopping in there for a few minutes … and, just before I walked out one of the doors, I just happened to bump into another one of my classmates.  Her name is Jessica Asti.  In the past, she was Jessica Deep.  Jessica is one of my neighbors on National Hill … and we both went to South Fayette High School together.  Obviously, in the past, we would bump into each other at the bus stop, which was at one end of Campbell Avenue.  Jessica lived on Allegheny Avenue, which is the other street on National Hill.  She’s not currently one of my neighbors at this time, but she does visit National Hill from time to time … and, in a way, she’s still one of my neighbors.

Anyway, whenever I bumped into Jessica at Heidelberg Shop ‘n Save last week, she was nice enough to pose for a selfie with me … and you can see it below this part of the blog post.

Joseph’s New “Dragon Ball Z” T-Shirt

Today, I would like to show you another present that I got for my 33rd birthday.  It would be a blue “Dragon Ball Z” T-Shirt.  Now, I already have an orange “Dragon Ball Z” zip-up hoodie, which is from Ripple Junction.  I got it in the mail back in 2015 … and I like it a lot.  The “Dragon Ball Z” T-Shirt, which is from Wal-Mart, is the second “Dragon Ball Z” shirt that I have ever owned.  My neighbor, Michael Spicer, got me the “Dragon Ball Z” shirt for my birthday … and I really like it a lot.  I would like to thank him for getting it for me and for allowing me to have a classy shirt of my own.

As you can see here, I like my new “Dragon Ball Z” T-shirt a lot and I will be wearing it many times in the future.  Thank you, Michael Spicer, for getting me a classy T-shirt for my 33rd birthday.

Next time, I will give you a chance to revisit some more of my blog posts from my blog’s third year.  I wrote the posts in the summer of 2017.
