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.

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.

Joseph Eats A Pumpkin-Flavored English Muffin

Today, I was going to thank some more of my blog’s followers in a blog post, but, instead, I decided to tell you about an exciting food item that I ate at around 7:30 this morning.

After I turned off my computer this morning, I was looking for a snack to eat … and I stumbled upon some pumpkin-flavored English muffins.  They are Thomas’s pumpkin-flavored English muffins.  There are usually six English muffins in a package, but there were nine English muffins in the package this time.  Since I ate one of those English muffins, there are now eight … and that number will go down over the next few days.

Those muffins are good … and, if you guys like them, you should consider buying them at a store near you.

Joseph sees the Gulf Tower’s “Weather Beacon”

On August 18, 2018, I went to Derek and Kayla’s wedding at Cambria Suites, which is located in the Lower Hill District.  I spent a few hours at this event with my relatives … and, before I left the wedding that night, I was able to go outdoors for a while.  While I was outdoors, I was able to look at the Gulf Tower’s “Weather Beacon” as the sun was setting … and I snapped some photos of it.  I snapped a selfie with the “Weather Beacon” in the background also.

Is this the best tea that Joseph has ever had?

Today, I would like to tell you about a drink that I had one morning.  Now, on Tuesday, I visited Pittsburgh with my relatives for a few hours or so.  He spent most of that time in the Strip District.  It was too hot for us to walk outdoors for a long period of time, so, while we were there, we just happened to go to the Lotus Food Store, which is located near Wholey’s Fish Market in the Strip District.  While I was in there, I bought a box of decaffeinated green tea, which is from the Triple Leaf Tea Company.  I hesitated at first, but then I decided to buy it for myself.  It was around four dollars … and I was able to put it to use the following morning.

I drank my first cup of this tea at around 8:00 yesterday morning … and it was very good.  I liked it so much, I decided to drink it again a few hours ago.  I drank my second cup of this tea at around 7:15 yesterday evening.  It was very good.  I will be drinking it many more times in the future.  In fact, I will be drinking it again after I turn off my computer this evening.

So, let me ask you this question before I end today’s blog post … is this tea the best tea that Joseph has ever had?  I think it is!

“Remember your pleases and thank yous”

As we prepare to wrap up my blog’s fourth year together, I would like to talk about a quote that will remain with me for a long time.  I first heard it during a field trip to the Heinz History Center more than 10 years ago.  The quote is … “Remember your pleases and thank yous.”  It was actually one of my teachers who said the quote back then … and it hasn’t really stuck with me too much … until now.

Up until a few years ago, I wasn’t too crazy about people saying “please” and “thank you” to me a lot, but nowadays, I’m urging my friends and even my relatives to say those words to me as often as they possibly can.  This way, they can have more respect than they once had.  Now, I’m starting to say those words at least 50 percent of the time.  You guys are all fantastic … and I hope you all will be able to say “please” and “thank you” to me as often as possible on a daily basis.

Beginning this Monday, August 13th, I will start celebrating my blog’s fourth anniversary by giving you statistics about my blog.  The blog will turn four years old in exactly two weeks.  That event will occur on August 24th.  I plan on starting my blog’s fifth year on August 26th.

Enjoy your day and enjoy your weekend!
