Remembering Piglet Four Years Later

February 12th is one of the saddest days of a year for me in a typical year because, on that date in 2015, Piglet, who was my English Bulldog, passed away at the age of 12.  Today, I’m marking the fourth anniversary of Piglet’s passing by writing this blog post down.  Not a day goes by where I don’t think about Piglet.  We have pictures of her all over our house … and we have a pink stone near the front of our house.  I will remember her for a long time.

Also, in recent years, I have talked about my bulldog, Piglet, in a blog post on February 12th of every year … and she was even the subject of my 350th blog post back in 2016.  You can find a link to those posts below the slideshow, which will appear just below this part of the post.

Blog Post Number 1,050 Is About My “Super” Uncle

I will not be using my computer until Saturday, February 2nd.  I will try to give you guys some terrific blog posts while I give my computer a break this week.

Today, I’m writing my 1,050th blog post on my blog … and it will be about my “super” uncle, whose name is Thomas Papakie.  I’m calling him a “super” uncle because he has a grey Superman shirt , just like I do.  We were able to wear them with class right before Christmas in 2018.

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

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around January 28th in previous years …

The Origins Of “Mr. Classy”

For the past three years now, I have been able to call myself “Mr. Classy” whenever I would wear the grey Michael Kors jacket or the black leather jacket, which is from Vintage Leather.  Like yours truly, “Mr. Classy” is an introvert also.  He likes to be alone after being out and about for hours at a time.

Well, anyway, let me tell you how I cam up with “Mr. Classy” as my current nickname.  In 2015, one of my friends, whose name is Jeff Mooney, worked with me at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx … and he would sometimes call himself “Mr. Grey.”  It was sort of named after a character in the movie “Fifty Shades Of Grey.”  That’s sort of the reason why I chose “Mr. Classy” as my current nickname.  It happened just days after I bought my grey Michael Kors jacket at T.J. Maxx.  I like the jacket so much, I wanted to create an alter ego based around the jacket.  I didn’t call myself “Mr. Classy” right away.  As we were about to start the year 2016 together, I put on the jacket, I said I was “Mr. Classy” and “Mr. Classy” was born.

These pictures of “Mr. Classy” appeared in my blog posts throughout 2018.

These pictures of “Mr. Classy” appeared on my blog throughout 2017.

These pictures of “Mr. Classy” appeared on my blog throughout 2016.

In December of 2015, I snapped these photos right after I purchased the grey Michael Kors jacket.  I wouldn’t start calling myself “Mr. Classy” until the beginning of 2016.

“Mr. Classy” has had a lot of fun over the past three years … and he has had two “stand-ins” in those three years.  The “stand-ins” have also worn the grey MK jackets.  Jonathan Reed was Mr. Classy’s original “stand-in” … and Tim Smith is his current “stand-in.”

“‘Mr. Classy’ and his ‘stand-ins” all say, ‘see you all later!'”

Thank you for allowing me to become “Mr. Classy” for the past three years.

I will be giving my computer a break from 7:00 this evening until 5:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 2nd.  I will try to give you some terrific blog posts while I give my computer a break over the next week.  Enjoy your day!

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.

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 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.

Let’s Talk About A Past Blog Post: My new rain jacket

In September of 2016, I wrote a blog post entitled “My new rain jacket.”  In it, I talked about my blue and orange rain jacket, which is from Under Armour.  I like the jacket so much, I was able to buy one for my cousin, Derek Papakie, a few days later.  I gave his jacket to him in January of 2017 … and he likes his jacket as much as I like mine.  Since I wrote that blog post two years ago, I’ve worn the jacket a few times.  I was inspired to write this blog post because I really wanted my friends and my relatives to see how classy my jacket was.

Here’s the link to that blog post …
