Joseph Likes The Southern Beltway!

IMG_20190418_093448494
On April 18, 2019, after I left Fella’s Barber Shop in McDonald, I snapped this photo of the bridge, which is part of the new Southern Beltway. The bridge goes over Route 980 near McDonald.

On April 18, 2019, I went to Fella’s Barber Shop in McDonald … and, after I left the barber shop that morning, I snapped a photo of the bridge, which is part of the new Southern Beltway.  The bridge is gonna go over Route 980 in McDonald.  Sorry it wasn’t a good picture of the bridge, but it sort of tells you that it will make a fantastic addition to the new highway.

Over the past couple of years or so, I have been able to see the Southern Beltway being built, whether I ride through McDonald or Gladden.  It’s part of Route 576 … and, so far, it looks fantastic.  Our part of the highway should open at some point this Summer … and the whole highway will be completed in about two years.  I have ridden on one part of it already.  It’s the part that goes from Route 22 near Bavington to Interstate 376 at Pittsburgh International Airport in Findlay Township.  I like the roadway so far … and I can’t wait until they finish building it.  It will be a great roadway to ride on and see whenever it’s finished.

Now, over the years, I have gotten used to seeing a four-lane highway near my house … and it won’t be long before I’ll have to get used to seeing two four-lane highways near my house.  One of them is Route 50, which was first built as a four-lane highway in the 1970s, and the other one is the Southern Beltway, which will open in about two years.

Tomorrow, as we wrap up the month of April, I’m going to give you a chance to revisit the last blog post from my blog’s second year … and I wrote the post down in August of 2016.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around April 29th in previous years …

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For May 2019

In less than four months, my blog will turn five years old … and, throughout the month of May, I will give you some chances to revisit some blog posts from my blog’s third year.  I will also give you a few surprises along the way.  Yes, I will also give you some great blog posts in May.

On May 1st, at 6:33 in the morning, I will enter my mid 30s … and I will write a blog post entitled “Joseph Is 33 Today!” on that day.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Joseph Has Owned This Grey Penguins Shirt For Three Years Now!”  I will talk about my love for the shirt three years after I first bought it at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx.  The Penguins’ season may be over, but I’ll still talk about the shirt in the post anyway.

I will write my 1,125th blog post in May.  What do you think it will be about?  You’ll have to wait a few days before I can tell you what it will be about.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Joseph Is Still ‘Built For The Wild’ One Year Later!”  I will talk about my camouflaged Yeti shirt in the blog post … and I will tell you why I still like it one year after I bought it at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “50,000 Miles In Ten Years!”  Our red car has been at our house for 10 years … and the red Chevrolet Equinox recently crossed the 50,000-mile mark on its odometer.  Hopefully, we can keep this vehicle for another 10 years or so.

I will use my blog’s features in May … and I will tell you how I’ll be using them this time.

The Third Time Was The Charm

Why is this blog post entitled “The Third Time Was The Charm?”  Well, let me tell you what I mean by that in this case.

Last Thursday, I went to Fella’s Barber Shop, which is located in McDonald, for the third time since I started going there late last year.  The barbers are Hunter Dorazio and Adam Stoffella.  Now, when I went there the first two times, Hunter was able to give me my haircuts there … and, when I went there for the third time last week, Adam, who also owns this Barber Shop, was able to give me my latest haircut.  Now, both Hunter and Adam are fantastic barbers … and it’s kind of hard for me to say which one of the two barbers does a better job in cutting my hair.  For now, I’m going to say it’s a tie.

In the photo on the left, you can see the haircut that Hunter gave me back in December of 2018 … and, in the photo on the right, you can see the haircut that Hunter gave me back in February of 2019.

Now, in the photo, which will appear below this part of the blog post, you can see the haircut that Adam gave me just last Thursday.

On April 18, 2019, I went to Fella’s Barber Shop in McDonald for the third time. Hunter gave me my haircuts the first two times … and Adam was able to cut my hair during my third visit. As you may have guessed, the third time was the charm … and my haircut was fantastic.

As you can see here, the third time was the charm whenever it came to getting my haircuts at Fella’s Barber Shop.  I was finally able to get the owner of this barber shop to cut my hair while I was there.

Next time, I will give you another chance to revisit a blog post from my blog’s second year.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around April 24th in previous years …

I saw more clouds and more blue holes recently!

Happy Easter, my friends!  Today, I’d like to talk about the clouds that I saw in the skies above both Cuddy and National Hill earlier this month … and I would like to talk about the “blue holes” that were in some of those clouds.

First, I’m going to show you photos that I took of some clouds and “blue holes” back on April 6th.  The clouds are white, dark and grey … and you may see a “blue hole” or two in some of these clouds.  I also zoomed in on some neat-looking clouds as well.  There may be a little cloud inside of the big clouds also.

On April 9th, I snapped more photos of the clouds that were in the skies above Cuddy and National Hill.  The clouds that I saw on that day were also white, grey and dark … and there were “blue holes” in these clouds as well.

I hope you guys liked looking at the clouds and the “blue holes” as much as I liked showing them to you.  Enjoy your Easter!

Happy 2nd Birthday, Ezra!

Today, I would like to wish one of my cousins a happy 2nd birthday … and his name is Ezra.  I have seem him in person at least a couple of times over the past two years … and I hope I can see him again in the near future.

Tim Smith, who is Mr. Classy’s “stand-in,” is Ezra’s father … and Ezra’s mother is my cousin, Sarah Smith.

Happy second birthday, Ezra!

Next time, I will write my 1,100th blog post and it will be about a person.  Also, later this week, I will give you a chance to revisit two blog posts from my blog’s second year … and I will give you a hint.  One of the posts will be about “Mr. Classy.”  Any guesses?

Let’s Talk About A Past Blog Post: Joseph’s new Puma jacket is full of class and swag!

In April of 2018, I wrote a blog post entitled “Joseph’s new Puma jacket is full of class and swag!”  I wrote the blog post just days after I got my jacket in the mail.  In the post, I described the jacket in detail … and I also said that wearing it with jeans or dress pants will give you class … and I also said that wearing it with shots will give you swag.  I was inspired to write this blog post because I wanted to show off one of the classiest jackets in my wardrobe … and it still gives me class and swag one year after I got it.

Here’s the link to the blog post …

“X” Marks The Spot … Sort Of!

During the second half of my blog’s fifth year, I am giving you a chance to revisit some of my past blog posts … and, during the month of April, I am giving you the chance to revisit some of my blog posts from my blog’s second year.

Today, I am giving you the chance to revisit my first blog post from my blog’s second year. I wrote this blog post back in August of 2015. In it, I talk about the “Xs” that were in our basement’s ceiling … and I snapped a photo of one of the “Xs.” The photo is possibly one of the scariest photos that I have ever taken. Nearly four years after I wrote this blog post down, the “Xs” are still hard to look it, but it all depends on how and when you look at them. If I look at them with enough light, the “Xs” don’t look so scary, but if I look at them in the dark, then they look somewhat scary.

Now, for two straight days after that, I kept the letter theme going by talking about the letters “Z” and “A.” I talked about the “Zs” that are on our cabinet, which is located next to our shower stall, and I also talked about the “As” that are in our backyard. We have some rather unique things in and around our house!

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around April 8th in previous years …

Joseph Pratt's Interests And Some Other Things

This is one of the "Xs" that we have in our basement's ceiling. This is one of the “Xs” that we have in our basement’s ceiling.

I have taken some somewhat scary pictures over the years, but this picture may be the scariest one that I have ever taken.

As we begin the second year of my blog together, I’d like to talk about the “Xs” that we have in our basement’s ceiling.  They scare me a little bit, especially whenever I see them in the dark.  So, I guess you could say that “X” marks the spot in our basement’s ceiling … sort of.    Even though they are nicely made, in my opinion, they’re almost hard to look at.

Joseph’s Gray And Black Puma Jacket Still Gives Him Swag One Year Later!

For just over one year, I have owned a jacket that has given me both class and swag … and that would be my gray and black jacket, which is from Puma.  It can be worn in several ways.  You can wear it with either jeans, dress pants or shorts … and I’ve worn it with all three of those things over the past year.  I like this jacket a lot … and I will wear it as often as i can over the next year.  May it give me class and swag for many more years to come.

Over the past year, I have been able to wear the gray and black Puma jacket with class.

I hope you like this jacket as much as I do.  It is one of the classiest jackets I have ever owned.

This is Joseph’s new grey and black Puma jacket. The Puma logo is visible on the front part of the jacket … and there are two black lines on the jacket. The lines are on the jacket’s sleeves. They start at the shoulders and they end at the elbows.

Next time, I will give you a chance to revisit the first blog post of my blog’s second year.  I wrote it back in August of 2015.

Meet Our New Bulldog, Brady

Over the weekend, I got a brand-new bulldog.  This bulldog is full of class … and his name is Brady.  Brady is a male English bulldog, he’s three months old and he’s from the state of Ohio.  He first came to our house on Saturday afternoon … and, over the past three days or so, I have gotten used to having him in our house.  I’m able to watch him sleep on the couch in the mornings whenever I’m able to do so … and I’m also able to watch him outdoors whenever the weather is nice.

So, without further ado, I would like you to meet my new bulldog, Brady.

IMG_20190401_092520206
On March 30, 2019, Brady, who is a male brown and white English bulldog, came to our house. The bulldog is from Ohio … and he’s three months old. He is full of class.

During the day, Brady likes to sleep on our couch … and, for the past two mornings, I have been able to watch him sleep on the couch for a few minutes or so.  It’s gonna take me a while to get used to having him be in our house regularly, but I think I should be able to handle this adjust fairly well.  Me and Brady became fast friends almost immediately this past weekend.

Let me show you three photos of Brady sleeping on our couch.  I snapped these photos both today and yesterday.

I hope you guys like Brady as much as I do.  How do you guys like him?
