Joseph Is Still “Built For The Wild” One Year Later!

Just over one year ago, I bought my camouflaged Yeti shirt at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx … and I’m still “Built For The Wild” one yera later.  I have worn the shirt a few times over the past year … and it gives me class whenever I wear it.  I liked it so much, I talked one of my friends into buying one … and his name is Derek Cryblskey.  The shirts give us class … and I actually talked about Derek in two of my blog posts last year.  So, as you may have guessed, I am still “built for the wild” one year later.

I have been able to wear my camouflaged Yeti shirt with class for just over one year now.  I hope you guys like the shirt as much as I do.

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 15th in previous years …

Joseph is still “super” two years later!

Two years ago, I got my grey Superman shirt … and I’ve worn it several times since I got it.  I’ve worn it mainly with jeans, but I will try to wear it with shorts and dress pants later this year as well.

I have been able to wear my grey Superman shirt with class a few times over the past two years.

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

I hope you guys still like the grey Superman shirt as much as I still like my shirt.

Remembering Pauline Two Years Later

Two years ago today, Pauline Danesky, who was both my aunt and my neighbor for years, passed away at the age of 88.  She was a very classy person.  I will miss her a lot … and I think about her every chance I get.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “No Bad Days For Joseph.”  I received a grey No Bad Days T-shirt for Christmas … and I will talk about it in a blog post.

Another one of my blog post will be entitled “Happy 55th Birthday, Kevin!”  I will celebrate Kevin Barnett’s 55th birthday on January 4th by writing a blog post about the event.  Kevin is a friend of mine … and we worked at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx together in the late 2000s and the early 2010s.

Say hello to Karen Schultz

For the past four years, I have had a terrific neighbor here on National Hill … and her name is Karen Schultz.  While I may not be able to see her as often as I would like to, she is still a terrific friend and a terrific person.  On December 10th, I bumped into Karen while I was at Eat ‘n Park in Kirwan Heights.  I was able to snap a selfie with her while I was there … and you can see it right below this part of this blog post.

On December 10, 2018, Joseph bumped into Karen Schultz, who is one of his neighbors on National Hill.

My walking schedule will change in 2019!

As you know, I am no longer taking my evening walks around National Hill.  I was able to walk around the neighborhood on Sunday afternoon since it was warm and sunny outside.  I know it’s early December, but I just had to do that.  Well, anyway, I will be walking around National Hill several times in 2019 … and I will be changing my walking schedule considerably, so that I do not disturb my friends and neighbors too much.

Here’s my walking schedule for 2019 …

Weekdays: Walk anytime between 9:00 in the morning and 12:30 in the afternoon
Weekends: Walk anytime between 7:30 in the morning and 5:00 in the afternoon

I hope you like this new schedule.  I have some terrific friends and neighbors on National Hill … and I’d like to keep it that way for a long time.

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 4th in previous years …

An “ode” to a friend named “Deek”

If you were growing up in the ’90s like me, you may have seen a rather unique logo on television.  It was for a production company called DiC.  It was pronounced “Deek” … and you heard someone say the word almost every single time.

I’m not going to talk about that company, but I would like to talk about the word “Deek” itself.  In fact, one of my friends sometimes uses that name.  His real name is Derek Cryblskey.  I talked about him in a blog post earlier this year.  Derek is a terrific friend and a classy neighbor.  He is polite, funny and down-to-earth.  Sometimes, I call him “Deek.”  Again, he’s just a terrific friend.

On May 19, 2018, me and Derek Cryblskey, who is one of my friends, were able to wear the camouflaged Yeti shirts with class. Derek is one of the classiest people that I’ve ever known.

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!

Blog Post Number 975

Today, I’m writing my 975th blog post for you guys … and I will be making a special announcement.  Some parts of it are good and some parts of it are bad.  I apologize in advance if I get a little bit emotional while I type this blog post.

As you probably know, I have not been taking a lot of my evening walks around National Hill this year.  I’ve been cutting back on them for personal reasons … and, in just a matter of days, I will stop doing that forever.  I won’t stop walking around National Hill completely, though.  I will start walking at other times during the day.  I will probably walk in the late morning hours instead of the late afternoon hours.  This way, I won’t have to disturb too many people while I walk around National Hill.  I do have fantastic neighbors and friends, though.

Thank you all for your understanding.

In tomorrow’s blog post, I will ask you guys a question about my 1,000th blog post, which will be written by me in just a few short weeks.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around October 11th in previous years …
