Finding the respect you never knew you had before

I would just like to thank you all for trying your best to say “please” and “thank you” to me as often as you possibly can.  It really makes me feel more respected than ever before … and, in the process, you guys are able to find the respect that you never knew you had before.  You guys are fantastic … and I hope you guys will continue to say “please” and “thank you” to me as often as possible as we enter both a new year and a new decade.

Let’s Talk About A Past Blog Post: Joseph’s Nike Air Jacket

Today, I would like to talk about a blog post that I wrote down in December of 2018.  The post is entitled “Joseph’s Nike Air Jacket.”  In it, I talked about my black and white Nike Air jacket, which I got for Christmas, more than two months after my mother ordered it for me online.  I said that I would wear it many times in 2019 … and I did just that.  I was inspired to write this blog post because I wanted to talk about a classy jacket like the black and white Nike Air jacket.  My uncle, Thomas Papakie, and my friend, Shawn Landy, have this jacket as well … and they wear it with class just like I do.  I also got to revisit the post back in July as I was celebrating my blog’s fifth anniversary.

This jacket is perfect for classy people like me, my uncle and my friend.

Here’s the link to my blog post …

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts About Brady The Bulldog

For just over seven months, Brady has been in our house.  I have written a few blog posts about him since then, but today, I would like to talk about two of my top blog posts, which are about Brady.

One of my posts is entitled “Meet Our New Bulldog, Brady,” which was written by me on April 2, 2019.  I wrote it just days after Brady first came into our house.  Here is a link to it …
Meet Our New Bulldog, Brady (April 2, 2019)

On October 22, 2019, I wrote a blog post in one of my features, which is called “Joseph Has A Question For You.”  In the post, I asked you if Brady should wear a costume on Halloween?  Now, Brady was originally supposed to be a Smurf, but, sadly, he chose not to wear the costume.  I also gave you some other choices, like pumpkins, avocados and unicorns.  Here is a link to the blog post …

Brady is, by far, one of the best pets we have ever owned.  I hope you guys still like him as much as we do.

I finally got to go inside of our new silver truck!

On September 17, 2019, we got a new silver Chevrolet truck at our house.  It replaced our red 2013 Chevrolet truck, which was at our house from December of 2013 until September of this year.  Now, almost one month after we got it, I was able to ride in it for a few minutes one morning.  I was going to Katsur Dental in Collier Towne Square … and I was able to go from my house to the dentist’s office while I was in the truck.

Now, after I left the dentist’s office on October 16, 2019, I was able to snap a photo of myself riding in the new silver truck.  I really like it … and, on the inside, it’s not too much more different from the inside of our red truck.  I snapped a photo of our truck’s odometer also.  Before I show you that picture, I’ll show you the selfie that I took while I rode in the truck.

On October 16, 2019, I snapped a photo of myself riding in our new silver Chevrolet truck. I rode from my house to the dentist’s office earlier that morning … and I rode in the silver truck for a few minutes then. The inside of this truck is not much different from the inside of our old red 2013 truck.

I snapped a photo of our silver truck’s odometer just before I left the truck that morning.  When I snapped the photo, it had 414 miles on its odometer.  That number has grown considerably over the past two weeks.

I hope you guys still like our silver truck as much as I do.  I was also able to ride in our truck’s back seat over the weekend.  I was going to a relative’s house for a birthday party whenever I did just that.  The silver truck is fantastic, both on the inside and on the outside.

Blog Post Number 1,225

Today, I am writing my 1,225th blog post … and it’s going to be a personal post this time.  Now, on October 16th, I went to Katsur Dental, which is located in Collier Towne Square, for the first time since the Spring of 2018.  My dental appointments usually go fairly well, but it didn’t go so well this time around.  I have to get two more of my upper teeth removed … and I have to get at least one filling.  I will be getting my two upper teeth removed at a later date at the same oral surgeon’s office that I went to in October of 2015 whenever I had my wisdom teeth removed.  Now, it could be hereditary.  My father, James Pratt, had some teeth removed at a young age … and he had false teeth whenever he was in his 30s.  Yes, I will have false teeth while I’m in my 30s … and I feel ashamed about that.

I don’t know when I’ll be getting my two upper teeth removed yet … and I may switch dentists next year.  I will be getting partial dentures in the near future.  I wonder which ones I should get.

Brady has been with us for six months now!

On March 30, 2019, Brady came to our house for the first time.  He’s originally from Ohio.  Our English Bulldog has now been with us for six months … and, while he is still a “work in progress,” he’s still a fantastic dog, nonetheless.  You just have to watch what you do around him.  Make sure you don’t drop anything in his presence.  You have to be really quick if you accidentally drop something around him.  Otherwise, he will grab the item you dropped almost immediately.  It pays to have quick reflexes in this case.

We have now owned our English Bulldog, Brady, for six months now. He’s a fantastic dog, but he’s still a “work in progress.”

I would just like to say that Brady has been able to become a crucial part of our family for the past six months now.  He’s still a work in progress, but we still like him, nonetheless.

Say hello to Donna Barca!

On the morning of July 4, 2019, I went to Giant Eagle in Collier Township for a few minutes … and, just before I left the store, I bumped into Donna Barca, who is the mother of my cousin, Sarah Smith.  I have bumped into Donna several times over the years, but I have never had a chance to appear in a selfie with her … until then.  You will see that selfie below this part of the blog post.

Joseph’s Nike Air Jacket

During the second half of my blog’s fifth year, I will give you some chances to revisit some of my past blog posts … and, during the month of July, I will give you chances to revisit blog posts from my blog’s fifth year. Today, I’d like to talk about a post from December of 2018 … and it’s entitled “Joseph’s Nike Air Jacket.”

Now, I got the black and white Nike Air jacket as a Christmas present back in December of 2018. My mother bought it for me on eBay more than two months earlier. I had to keep it hidden until Christmas Day … and it was hard for me to do so. I was able to wait more than two months before I could wear the jacket full time. I really like the jacket and I will wear it many times in the future. My friend, Shawn Landy, has this jacket … and, my uncle, Thomas Papakie, also has this jacket. I bought the jacket for my uncle as a Christmas present just weeks after I got mine in the mail … and we were both able to wear them with class on Christmas Day. Since we got our jackets, we’ve worn them several times … and I’m still talking some of my friends and my other relatives into buying this jacket as well. In fact, I may buy it for one of my relatives in the near future. It’s that classy. I still like this jacket today.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around July 10th in previous years …

Joseph Pratt's Interests And Some Other Things

A few weeks ago, my mother bought me a black and white Nike Air jacket on eBay.  I kept it hidden from the middle of October until Christmas Day … and, then, on that day, I would start wearing it full time.  I like the jacket a lot and I plan on wearing it many times in 2019.

IMG_20181227_122010127 This is Joseph’s black and white Nike Air jacket.

Just before Christmas, I was able to get that jacket for my uncle, Thomas Papakie, and he likes it as much as I do.  We wore them with class on Christmas evening in 2018.  Do we look like twins in them?

Joseph’s friend, Shawn Landy, who went to South Fayette High School with him in the 2000s, has the Nike Air jacket also … and he also wears it with class.

I hope you guys like the Nike Air jacket as much as…
