My new classy light blue short-sleeve button-down shirt

On June 26th, I purchased a very classy summertime shirt at T.J. Maxx and HomeGoods in Bridgeville for nearly 25 dollars. The shirt is a light blue short-sleeve button-down shirt from Tommy Hilfiger. The color is “Corydalis Blue.” The shirt is very classy … and it goes with nice shorts, blue jeans and dress pants.

I did try on the shirt yesterday morning … and the shirt fits me well. I don’t know when I’ll be wearing the shirt yet, but I will try to wear it at some point in the near future. I can’t tell you when I will do just that yet.

On June 26, 2020, I purchased this light blue short-sleeve button-down shirt from Tommy Hilfiger while I was at T.J. Maxx and HomeGoods in Bridgeville. The shirt is very classy and it goes nicely with nice shorts, blue jeans and dress pants.

I hope you guys like this shirt as much as I do … and I will do my best to wear this shirt in the near future. Wait until you see how classy it is whenever I do wear this shirt.

Brady knows how to relax!

On July 1, 2020, I was able to watch Brady for about four hours or so in the morning. It’s always fun to watch Brady at home whenever I’m able to do so. Whenever I watch him, he tries to relax in a big way. He makes my job an easy one, to say the least.

On July 1, 2020, Brady was looking at our living room. I wonder what he wanted then.

In this photo, Brady was looking in our living room. Now, it doesn’t look like he was looking at the blue living room chair this time around. What do you think he was looking at in there?

On July 1, 2020, Brady was relaxing near our front porch.

Brady was able to relax near our front porch for a little while that morning. He really likes it out there, for some reason. He also relaxed near our living room chairs for a little while late that morning.

On July 1, 2020, Brady was relaxing near our living room chairs.

As you can see in these photos, Brady knows how to relax whenever I babysit him during the day. Whenever he relaxes, he makes my job a fairly easy one. I think Brady looks cute whenever he relaxes.

Joseph’s Moment Of Peace: Watching WQED on weekend afternoons

Since the Fall of 2018, I have been able to watch WQED on Saturday and Sunday afternoon for a few hours whenever the pledge-drive shows are not airing. I generally watch this channel in my “computer room” for three hours on some Saturdays … and I watch it for one to three hours on Sundays, depending on what kinds of shows are airing then.

It actually started on the afternoon of October 27, 2018. I was watching the Pittsburgh TV stations cover an incident, which happened at Tree Of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill that morning, and, after I had gotten tired of seeing them talking about it for a while, I switched over to WQED … and, since then, I have been able to watch the station for a while on the weekends.

Watching WQED on some weekend afternoons relaxes me, depending on which programs are airing. The programs that air on there at those times are sometimes fun to watch. It’s hard for me to pick a great show that I really like to see on there on the weekends, but, if I had to pick one, it would probably have to be “The Woodwright’s Shop,” which airs at 2:30 on some Saturday afternoons.

If you need to watch some relaxing shows on weekends, may I suggests watching WQED for a few hours on weekend afternoons? It may relax you in a big way. The channel relaxes me in a big way.

Those puppy eyes won’t work on me, Brady!

On some mornings, I am able to watch Brady in our living room. I usually sit in the blue chair whenever I do just that … and, on a number of occasions, Brady has been able to put his head up at me whenever I’m sitting in the blue chair … and he is also able to relax near the living room chairs whenever I’m sitting in there watching him.

On the morning of June 28, 2020, Brady was relaxing near our living room chairs. He likes to relax whenever he is able to do so.

Now, yesterday morning, I was watching Brady in the living room … and he was looking up at me while I was sitting in the blue chair … and he gave me those puppy eyes. Well, he didn’t get the blue chair yesterday. Those puppy eyes don’t work on me.

On June 29, 2020, Brady was relaxing near our living room chairs again. This time around, he didn’t look up at me while I was sitting in the blue chair.

At times, Brady may give me those puppy eyes and look up at me whenever I sit in the blue chair, but I will say one thing. Those puppy eyes won’t work on me … and Brady will not be able to sit in the blue chair whenever I’m sitting in it.

I still have my Colussy Chevrolet shirt two years later!

I have owned my blue and white Colussy Chevrolet Raglan shirt for two years now. I got it when Colussy Chevrolet turned 100 years old back in 2018. The car dealership is now 102 years old. I have worn the shirt several times over the past two years … and I’m sorry I haven’t worn it as much as I wanted to.

I hope you guys still like the shirt as much as I do.

Brady relaxes both outdoors and indoors!

This morning and early this afternoon, I was watching Brady for about three hours or so. He was able to relax during most of that time. Whether Brady is outdoors near our front porch or indoors in our living room, Brady likes to relax whenever he is able to do so.

On June 25, 2020, Brady was relaxing outdoors near our front porch. It was a fairly nice morning at our house … and he was outdoors quite a bit at that time.
On June 25, 2020, Brady was able to relax indoors in our living room. He does a fantastic job in relaxing whenever he does relax.

As you can see here, whether Brady is outdoors or indoors, he likes to relax a lot … and it’s always fun whenever I get to watch him relax during the day. Brady is a fantastic dog, nonetheless.

Joseph’s White Masks Keep Him Safe And Give Him Class!

Like a lot of people, I have been able to wear my masks whenever I have to leave my house. I started to leave my house a few days ago after staying mainly in my house for almost three months. I have worn my white 3M mask on some occasions whenever I leave my house, but, in recent days, I have worn some of my new plain white masks, which are from Big Lots.

Today, while I was out and about for a few hours, I wore my white mask as much as possible. I did the best I could to keep both my mouth and my nose covered whenever I wore the mask, but, at times, it wouldn’t stay on the nose. Now, I would like to show you two photos of me wearing the plain white mask. I hope you guys like them as much as I do.

On June 23, 2020, I snapped a couple of photos of myself wearing one of my new plain white masks, which are from Big Lots. While I wore the masks this morning, I did the best I could to cover both my mouth and my nose, but it was sometime hard to keep the nose covered while I was wearing the mask.

I hope you guys like my plain white mask, which is from Big Lots, as much as I do. I will be wearing them whenever I go outdoors for as long as we have to wear our masks. The masks keep me safe, but they also give me some class. Yes, these kinds of masks can be part of a classy wardrobe, if you wear them right, of course.

Some Pittsburgh TV personalities were on more than one station!

Yesterday evening, former KDKA weatherman Jeff Verszyla did the weather reports for WTAE’s Sunday evening newscasts. It was the first time since late 2018 that Jeff had appeared on TV. He worked at KDKA for more than 20 years before he started to do weather reports for WTAE.

Seeing Jeff do the weather on both KDKA and WTAE prompted me to talk about some other Pittsburgh TV personalities who appeared on one or more TV stations over the years in today’s blog post.

A few of Pittsburgh’s TV personalities were on more than one TV stations over the years … and I will tell you a few of the personalities that worked at more than one Pittsburgh TV station over the years.

Some of the people who worked at more than one Pittsburgh TV station over the years include Rich Walsh, who worked at WPXI and is now at KDKA, Christine D’Antonio, who worked at KDKA and is now at WPXI, Ray Petelin, who worked at WTAE and is now at KDKA and Ashley Dougherty, who worked at KDKA as a freelancer and is now at WTAE as a regular weather person.

Several other people worked at two Pittsburgh TV stations over the years … and those people are also fantastic personalities. I am honestly say that I have watched at least one of these personalities on more than one of the stations that they have appeared on. They do a fantastic job on their stations, each and every time.

This is what Joseph did while he was off from work for three months!

Tomorrow morning, at 9:30, I will be at T.J. Maxx and HomeGoods in Bridgeville for the first time since the afternoon of March 13th.  For just over three months, I have not been able to leave my house too much, except to walk to my mailbox.  I was able to leave my house while wearing a mask on both Friday, June 12th, and Tuesday, June 16th.

As I prepare to get back to a normal routine again, I would like to show you what I did over the past three months … and I have talked about some of these events in a few of my blog posts.  So, without further ado, let me show you what I did over the past three months while I was off from work.

On March 15, 2020, there was some snow on our property. You could still see the grass on our property, but there was a decent amount of snow on the ground that morning.

On March 15, 2020, there was a lot of snow on our deck. It covered up all of the items that were on our deck that morning.

This is my red and blue Saddlebred polo shirt, which is the subject of my 1,325th blog post. The shirt is very classy … and I got it for Christmas nearly three months ago.

I really like my red and blue Saddlebred polo shirt. The shirt is very classy … and I will continue to wear it often in the future.

I have owned this plaid long-sleeve button-down shirt from Chaps for just over one year now. I bought the shirt at T.J. Maxx and HomeGoods in Bridgeville in March of 2019. The shirt has a front pocket with the Chaps logo on it … and the colors that are on the shirt are white, blue, pink and purple.

Brady has now been with us for one year now. I snapped this photo inside of our kitchen.

Brady is celebrating his first year in our house. I snapped this photo on our front porch … and, as you can see here, we are practice “Social Distancing” as I self one of the four selfies that we took today.

I have owned my grey and black Puma jacket for just over two years now. Every time I wear the jacket, it gives me extra class and extra swag.

You can zip up the Puma jacket halfway whenever you wear it. You should never zip it up the whole way. This method may come in handy if you wear it with jeans and a T-shirt.

You can also leave it unzipped if you are wearing a button-down shirt or a nice dress shirt,

On April 5, 2020, I wrote my 1,337th blog post on my blog. I didn’t know that “1,337” is a special number on this bog.

On April 8, 2020, while I was sitting in our blue living room chair for a few minutes that morning, I noticed that Brady was resting behind our chairs in the early morning hours. I was surprised to see him there whenever I was relaxing in the living room at around 4:30 in the morning.

These are my hand creams. I like them a lot … and I use them whenever my hands get dry and cracked. Some of them work better than others, but they all make my hands feel soft and smooth.

I snapped this selfie in our living room on April 12, 2020 … and I also wanted to include my Senior Class photo, which is from 2003, in the selfie. You can see it on the top right hand corner of this selfie.

These are my Easter baskets for 2020. I didn’t have a proper Easter basket this year, so I got my treats in three small red plastic bowls. The bowls have jelly beans, York peppermint patties and egg-shaped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

On April 14, 2020, while Brady and I were in our dining room that morning, we were able to practice Social Distancing for a few short minutes. Brady likes to be close to people, but he needs to practice Social Distancing by staying at least six feet away from us for a while. It may be hard for him to do just that, though.

This is my green and yellow Brasil jacket. It was the subject of my seventh blog post, which I wrote down on September 7, 2014. My friend and cousin, Shane Trylko, also has this jacket … and our jackets are our “friendship jackets.”

On April 20, 2020, I received two interesting gifts. One is a white mask from 3M … and one is a classy blue pullover from an organization called Progressive Turnout Project.

On April 20, 2020, I was able to wear my new white 3M mask for a few short minutes. I won’t be wearing it too much since I’ll be at home quite a bit, but if the time comes for me to wear the mask, I’ll be ready. As you can see in these photos, it’s hard for me to wear this mask with my glasses. Yes, the mask covers the mouth and the nose.

On April 20, 2020, I was able to wear my new blue pullover from the Progressive Turnout Project, which is an organization that encourages people to vote in their locations.
The word “Resist” is in white, the word “Organize” is in blue and the word “Vote” is in red. The logo for Progressive Turnout Project appears underneath of those three words.

My 1,350th blog post is about my grey FILA jacket. It’s a classy jacket … and it goes nicely with blue jeans and button-down shirts. You can also wear it with white jeans, as you can see here in this photo. I bought the jacket at T.J. Maxx and HomeGoods in Bridgeville in December of 2019.

This is a close-up shot of my grey FILA jacket. The jacket is the subject of my 1,350th blog post.

On April 21, 2020, while I was staying home during the current Coronavirus Outbreak, I was able to see some clouds in the skies above South Fayette. The clouds were white, dark and grey … and I saw “blue holes” and some “grey holes” in the clouds.

On April 26, 2020, I was listening to 90.5 WESA, which is one of Pittsburgh’s three NPR stations, on my clock radio, which is in my bedroom. I asked you guys if I should do just that back in February … and I actually said I should do so.

On April 26, 2020, I snapped this selfie in front of my tall mirror. The tall mirror is by my bedroom door.

I have owned this classy Dragon Ball Z T-shirt for just over one year now.

May 4th is National Orange Juice Day. Now, on May 4, 2020, I drank a small cup of Tropicana Orange Juice in a small coffee cup. I’m drinking to drink orange juice as often as I can.

This is my new “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” T-shirt. I apologize if the photo is sideways. That’s sort of how it looked on my smartphone’s camera.

On the back of my new “Star Wars” shirt, you can see the dates that the “Star Wars” movies were first shown in theaters. This is a so-called “tour dates” shirt.

I have owned this grey Pittsburgh Penguins T-shirt for four years now. I purchased it on May 9, 2016, at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx.

For the past year now, I have owned a classy ensemble. It consists of my grey Nike half-zip pullover, my grey Chaps polo shirt, my purple crew neck T-shirt from Arizona and my dark wash jeans from Chaps.

I am wearing my grey Chaps polo shirt, my dark wash Chaps jeans and my purple crew neck T-shirt, which is from Arizona, in this photo.

Joseph received a black “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” T-shirt and a black Calvin Klein bomber coat for his 34th birthday.

On May 12, 2020, I wore my black “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” T-shirt, exactly one week after I got it as a late birthday present.

Here is the back of my “Star Wars” T-shirt.

My new black bomber coat, which is from Calvin Klein, has a lot of zippers and pockets on it. Here is a close-up shot of one of those zippers. This is actually a pocket with a zipper on it … and it’s hidden inside of a regular pocket.

Here is another one of the zippers that can be found on my black Calvin Klein bomber coat. This zippered pocket is hidden inside of this so-called cargo pocket. The cargo pocket is on the jacket’s left sleeve.

Here is my black bomber coat, which is from Calvin Klein. This jacket is classy … and, yes, it’s perfect for classy gentlemen like myself. Will I wear it a lot in the future? Absolutely. I won’t wear it too much at first since the weather is starting to warm up.

As you can see here, my new black Calvin Klein bomber coat is giving me class in a big way. This jacket is classy … and it’s perfect for classy gentlemen like myself.

Here is a close-up shot of my new black Calvin Klein bomber jacket.
