Happy 50th Birthday, James Papakie!

Today, I would like to wish one of my uncles a happy 50th birthday … and his name is James Papakie.  He’s a terrific relative and a terrific friend.  I see him a few times a year.

Here’s a little known fact … whenever I was born in May of 1986, Jimmy was not a high school graduate yet.  He would graduate from South Fayette High School a few weeks later.

I’d like to show you a photo of my uncle from the 1980s.  Happy 50th birthday, James Papakie!

Today, my uncle, James Papakie, is 50 years old. The photo that I’m showing you in this blog post is from the 1980s.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around September 5th in previous years …

Joseph’s Flashback: Joseph goes to Erie!

Now, in just a few days, I will be going to Erie with some of my relatives.  I’ll be there from Thursday, August 2nd, until Sunday, August 5th.  Today, I would like to talk about some of my past trips to that city.

It would take me a long time to tell you all of the places that I went to went I was in Erie, so I’ll just sum it up by telling you a few of the places that I would go to while I was there.  Some of the places that I would go to while I was in Erie are Waldameer Park, Presque Isle State Park, The Tom Ridge Environmental Center, Erie’s Bicentennial Tower, Chico’s Travelers Inn, The Pittsburgh Inn and more.  The other places that I have been to while I was in Erie are fantastic also.

This Thursday, I will wish one of my relatives a happy 75th birthday in a blog post.  Then, on Friday, I will talk about one of my friends in my 925th blog post.  Finally, on Saturday, I will celebrate the third anniversary of my black Hewlett-Packard computer.

Enjoy your day!

Did Joseph have the best dining experience of his life or what?

On July 17, 2018, I was visiting the city of Pittsburgh with my relatives. I went to Downtown Pittsburgh, Shadyside and the Strip District on that day … and, while I was walking through the Strip District late that morning, I happened to stumble across a place called Luke Wholey’s Wild Alaskan Grille. It’s a seafood restaurant, which is located on Penn Avenue in the Strip District. Me and my relatives ate lunch there … and I would just like to say that I really liked the place a lot. The food was fantastic … and so was the service. You could say I may have been the best dining experience of my life while I was at that restaurant. I may go there again in the future.

If you ever go to the Strip District yourselves, make sure you check out Luke Wholey’s Wild Alaskan Grille … and you, too, may have a fantastic dining experience.

Guess who’s turning 60 today?

Today is July 14th … and, today, one of my relatives is turning 60.  Her name is Mary McAdams … and she’s one of my cousins.  I get to see her in person a few times a year … and I do get to keep in touch with her whenever I can.  She is a terrific person.

Happy birthday, Mary!

Joseph likes Route 910!

Today, I’m writing my 910th blog post for you guys … and, in it, I would like to talk about Route 910, which goes through northern Allegheny County.  I have never ridden on the entire roadway before, but I have gone on parts of the highway throughout my life.  I would usually ride on it with my relatives.  I would go on a little portion of it whenever I would go to Soergel’s Orchards with my relatives.  I also rode on another part of it with my relatives a few years ago.  We would end up riding through the North Hills later that day.  Route 910 is fantastic, in my opinion.  It’s one of the best roadways in our area.

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For July 2018

We are almost halfway through 2018 … and, in less than two months, my blog will start its fifth year.  Today, I’m going to tell you about some of the blog posts that I’ll be writing down in July.  One of my blog posts will be my 925th blog post.  It will be about a very exciting thing.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “I have owned by H.P. computer for three years!”  I will talk about my black Hewlett-Packard computer, which I have owned for three years.  It still works very well today.  In fact, since July of 2015, I have been writing my blog posts on my Hewlett-Packard computer.  Before that, from August of 2014 until July of 2015, I wrote my blog posts on my old white eMachines computer.

I will be honoring two of my relatives in two of my blog posts in July.  One of those blog posts will be entitled “Guess who’s turning 60 today?”  One of my relatives will turn 60 on July 14th … and I’ll talk about the event in a blog post then.  Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “One of my aunts is 75 today!”  On July 26th, one of my aunts will turn 75 … and, on that day, I will talk about the event in a blog post.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Our new bathroom is one year old!”  Our new bathroom was being remodeled last Summer at around this time … and it was completed in early July.  I will talk about the event in a blog post in July.  It seems like we just remodeled it yesterday.

I will also use my features in July.  Let me tell you how I’ll be using them this time.

Joseph’s Flashback-Joseph goes to Erie!
Joseph’s Moment Of Peace-Joseph’s little vacuum cleaner!
Joseph Has A Question For You-How should Joseph celebrate his blog’s fifth year all year long?
Let’s Talk About A Past Blog Post-Joseph’s New Classy Jacket

I hope you guys will check out at least one of my blog posts in July.  They may interest you a little bit.

Enjoy your day!

Let’s Make Some Things Clear

In an episode of “The Brady Bunch,” Greg wanted his parents to use “exact words” with him so that he would know exactly what they were telling him.  Well, in my case, I’m asking my relatives and friends to talk clearly and specifically with me whenever they talk to me about certain things.  Let me tell you what I mean by that.

Whenever you guys tell me that you are gonna go to a store, you would have to tell me exactly which store you would be going to.  Are you going to this store or that store?  Now, we have more than one Dollar General store near my house … and if you told me that you were gonna go to Dollar General, you would have to tell me which Dollar General store you were gonna go to.  Are you gonna go to the one in McDonald, Cecil, Hickory, Canonsburg, Houston or Clinton?  This way, I’ll know exactly which one of those stores you would be going to at a certain time.

Now, if you guys speak to me specifically and clearly about certain things, I would know exactly what you were talking about.  This way, I can have many of the facts instead of just having some of the facts.

I hope you were able to let me make some things clear for you guys in this blog post.

Joseph Spends The Evening At Bubba’s Burghers!

At 6:33 yesterday morning, I turned 32 years old … and, just less than 11 hours later, I went to Bubba’s Burghers, which is located in South Fayette, with my relatives.  I spent one hour at the restaurant last evening … and I really like it a lot.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I really enjoyed myself while I was there.  I got myself a Bacon Ranch Burgher while I was there.  I asked the waitress to leave off certain things on the sandwich … and, sadly, they didn’t do that, but I was still able to eat most of the sandwich yesterday evening.

While I was at Bubba’s Burghers on May 1, 2018, I got a Bacon Ranch Burgher. I was able to eat most of it. It looks good, I think.

Today is my first complete day as a 32-year-old gentleman.  So far, my 32nd year on Earth is going fairly well.  Enjoy your day!

Happy 30th Birthday, Sarah!

30 years ago today, I became a first-time cousin whenever Sarah Smith was born.  Since then, she has become one of the classiest cousins and friends that I have ever known.  Today, I would like to wish her a happy 30th birthday.  Happy 30th birthday, Sarah!

Back in the 2000s, Joseph and his cousin, Sarah Smith, were in Cecil Park for a few hours. They have been cousins and friends for 30 years now!
