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.

How should I use my flat pillow?

One year ago, I stopped sleeping with my flat pillow because it was starting to get very flat.  I would start using My Pillow nightly a few days later.  Well, anyway, my flat pillow has a striped pillowcase on it.  There are red, brown and white stripes on the pillowcase.  I didn’t stop using my flat pillow completely after I took it off my bed one final time.  I would take it in some rooms in my house … and I also put it behind my head whenever I would mediate with the calm.com app.  I would also hug my flat pillow on a daily basis.  With that in mind, let me ask you this question … how should I use my flat pillow?  Leave me a comment below this post, if you have suggestions for me.

A funny thing happened to me on the way to T.J. Maxx on Black Friday!

This past Friday, I worked at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx on Black Friday.  Now, for the past few weeks, me and my mother have been going to Big Lots in Great Southern Shopping Center before I went over to T.J. Maxx to work.  This past Friday was no exception, of course.  It was just a normal day.  While I was there, a Big Lots customer saw my store’s name tag and ask me where something was.  Obviously, she asked me that question in the wrong store!  Luckily, I handled that situation well.  It went fairly well.

Joseph’s New Zombie Hunter Shirt

IMG_20181025_171025305
This is Joseph’s new Zombie Hunter shirt. It is a very classy shirt.

This past Wednesday, after I got my flu shot at Bridgeville Giant Eagle, I was able to go to Wal-Mart in Scott Township … and I bought myself a Halloween shirt.  The shirt is $4.97.  It is a Zombie Hunter shirt.  I’m not really going to become a “zombie hunter” myself; however, I do like the shirt and I will be wearing it many times in the future.

This shirt is full of class … and it also glows in the dark.  I snapped one of the photos in total darkness, just to see if it really does glow in the dark.  I also snapped a normal photo of the shirt.

I hope you guys like this Halloween shirt as much as I do.  Please consider buying yourselves this shirt at your local Wal-Mart store before Halloween arrives.  You may like it too.

Joseph’s Moment Of Peace: Joseph’s Pirates Shirts

Well, the Pirates won’t be playing baseball until next Spring, but that’s not going to stop me from telling you about the many Pirates shirts that I have at home.  I have been able to wear these shirts at least once since I bought them at various stores in the past.  The shirts relax me in a big way, whether or not the Pirates are playing on any given day.  I may also wear them in the Winter time.  I have actually owned one of the Pirates shirts twice.  Can you guess which one it is?  The answer can be found underneath of the picture that will go with this post.

These are the Pirates shirts that I currently own. I have owned one of these shirts twice in recent years. My Pirates hoodie and my Pirates jerseys are also in this photo.

Did you guess which shirt I have owned twice?  That would be my grey Pirates shirt, which is from Majestic.  It’s the shirt that has the black “P” on it.  It’s on the bottom-left hand corner of the photo.

Joseph’s wisdom teeth have been gone for three years now!

Today, I would like to celebrate a milestone.  I’m actually celebrating it a day late on my blog because, yesterday, I wrote a blog post about one of my favorite roadways in Pittsburgh, which is Route 978.  It was my 978th blog post … and I wanted to talk about the roadway in the blog post yesterday.

Three years ago, I got my wisdom teeth removed.  I’ve been doing pretty well since then.

Yes, my stuffed lamb was able to help me celebrate this milestone.  It helped me recover after I got my wisdom teeth removed three years ago.

Joseph’s 978th Blog Post Is About Route 978

Today, I’m writing my 978th blog post down … and it will be about one of my favorite roadways in the Pittsburgh area.  That roadway is Route 978.  It starts near Gladden and it ends near Imperial.

I have traveled on Route 978 many, many times in my life … and I really like the roadway a lot.  One of my relatives lives right on that roadway … and some of my favorite businesses are located on the roadway.  I could ride on this roadway all day long, if I could.  It’s just a great roadway.

Over the years, I have gone to a lot of exciting places, which are located along Route 978 … and I’ve talked about some of those businesses in my blog posts over the past four years.

Joseph’s New Glasses

If you were able to see me in my videos and/or my photos on Social Media over the past few days or so, you may have noticed something different about me.  If you looked very closely, you may have noticed that I was not wearing my Joseph Abboud glasses.  That’s because I got new glasses at Three Guys Optical, which is located in Collier Township, over the weekend.  I have owned my previous glasses for more than two years.

On October 6, 2018, I got new glasses from Three Guys Optical, which is located in Collier Township. Before I got these glasses, I had owned my Joseph Abboud glasses for more than two years.

I hope you guys like these glasses as much as I do.

Joseph’s Trip To The Hickory Apple Festival

Happy Columbus Day!  Today, I would like to talk about my trip to Hickory’s Apple Festival, which is located in Washington County.  I went to this event with some of my relatives on Saturday afternoon … and I went there in all kinds of weather.  I still had fun at the event, nonetheless.

While I was at the Apple Festival, I snapped four photos of the clouds, which were in the skies above both Hickory and Mount Pleasant Township.  The clouds here are grey, dark and white.

Just moments after I arrived at the Hickory Apple Festival, it started to rain … and I also heard some rumbles of thunder while I was there.  I had to go under a green and white tent until the showers and the storms left Hickory.  Luckily, the skies cleared up … and the sun was able to come out just minutes after I arrived at the festival.

IMG_20181006_141406744
On October 8, 2018, I was sitting under a tent at Hickory’s Apple Festival. There are showers and storms in Hickory whenever I snapped this photo. I apologize if you can’t see my face too well in the photo.

I wasn’t able to see every exhibit while I was at the festival because the grass was too muddy, but I was able to see a few exhibits in some buildings and in some tents.  I also went to the Mount Pleasant Community Center … and, on the top floor, there is a fascinating train exhibit.  I snapped three photos of it while I was there.  The train exhibit was fantastic, to say the least.

I also bumped into two of my friends while I was at the Apple Festival.  First, I bumped into Michael Keehn, who went to South Fayette High School.  We both went to that school at around the same time in the early 2000s.  Ironically, Michael was at Nicky Papakie’s 50th birthday party in August of 2014 … and that birthday party was the subject of my first ever blog post.  Michael and I became friends on Facebook in February of 2015.  He’s one of the classiest friends I have ever known.

I also bumped into Ted Wolford, who works for the Mount Pleasant Fire Department, which is one of the festival’s sponsors.  I first bumped into Ted on National Hill back in August of 2017.  Ted is one of the classiest friends I have ever known.
