My new pillow

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’m allowing you to revisit some of my past blog posts during the second half of my blog’s fifth year.

In January of 2015, I wrote a blog post entitled “My new pillow.” I have actually owned this pillow for just over four years … and I still have the pillow case that goes with it. In fact, I have two pillowcases that are exactly the same … and there are some slight differences in both of those pillowcases. I was giving my computer a break for a few days after I wrote this blog post. I didn’t write any blog posts until I started using my computer again. I was visiting my aunt for a few days while I was giving it a break. As my blog started to grow, I was able to schedule my blog posts so that you would have a blog post on certain days while I was giving my computer a break for days at a time … and I would stop spending a few days at my aunt’s house so that I would focus more of my time on this blog. I still visit her at her house whenever I have the time to do so.

My pillow is flat and I don’t sleep on it every night anymore. I’m still putting it to use on a daily basis, though.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around March 19th in previous years …

Joseph Pratt's Interests And Some Other Things

I also got a new pillow for Christmas. I also got a new pillowcase for Christmas as well. Even though the pillow is often flat, I still like it a lot.

I will not be posting any more blogs for a while. Don’t worry … I will post my next blog on February 9th. Until then, feel free to check out the other blogs that I have written over the past five months. Thank you … and enjoy the rest of your day!

Joseph’s First Two Posts On This Blog

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I am giving you the chance to revisit some of my past blog posts.

Today, I am giving you a chance to revisit not one, but two of my past blog posts. The post I’m going to show you is the second one that I ever wrote on this blog … and it’s from August 24, 2014. Earlier that day, I wrote my first blog post ever … and I will show you a link to the blog post, if you’d like to see it again.

My blogging schedule has changed somewhat since I wrote my second blog post back in August of 2014. I write blog posts four to five times a week … and I generally schedule my blog posts on certain days. Generally speaking, I usually write them “live” for you guys on certain days. Sadly, I don’t have my journals anymore. I used to write things in them as an assignment when I was in high school.

When I wrote my first blog post on August 24, 2014, I talked about two relatives, who were celebrating big birthdays at South Park the previous afternoon. They are nearly five years older now than they were then, but they still look terrific, nonetheless.

Please take the time to revisit the blog posts that I wrote down on August 24, 2014, which is the day that I started this blog for the first time.

I am also going to show you a link to the first blog post that I ever wrote down … and I will also show you the pictures that went with the blog posts.

Joseph Pratt's Interests And Some Other Things

You’re probably asking yourselves, “Why did Joseph Pratt decide to start blogging regularly?”  Well, that’s a very good question.  I decided to start blogging regularly because I wanted to talk about things that interest me … and I also wanted to talk about things that I like to talk about on a regular basis.  Several years ago, when I was in high school, I kept a journal for myself.  I actually have several journals at home … and I have them hidden away in a shoe box in my home.  Well, it was actually an assignment for one of my classes at school, but I almost always liked to write in there a lot.  I would write about things that I was interested in … and I would also write about things that bothered me as well.  I might also blog about things that bother me a lot, but I…

Joseph’s Flashback: Joseph remembers Callahan’s

For many years, there was a part of Great Southern Shopping Center that was home to many different places, including a disco-style nightclub called V.I.P., a terrific restaurant called Face’s and a terrific sports pub called Callahan’s, which is the restaurant that I’ll be talking about in today’s blog post.

I went to this place with my relatives many times whenever I was younger.  They had games there, they had little TV sets at every booth and, of course, they had great food there.  The service there was fantastic, as well.  I liked this place a lot … and I will remember this place for a long time.

After Callahan’s left the shopping center, it was called one or two other things … and, when it burned to the ground in 2006, it was called Crazy Horse Saloon.  Bentley’s Banquet Hall was also in the same part of the shopping center as Callahan’s.  At times, I were able to see parts of the banquet hall while I walked through Callahan’s itself.

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 27th 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!

Joseph’s Trip To Houston’s Pumpkin Festival

This past Sunday, I went to Houston’s Pumpkin Festival, which is located in Washington County.  I have been to this event several times over the years … and I was able to go there for about 90 minutes on Sunday morning.  I went there with my relatives.  It may have been a little bit chilly outside, but I still had fun there nonetheless … and, luckily, it didn’t start raining heavily until after I left the festival.

I went underneath of a pavilion while I was at the Festival. It wasn’t raining whenever I snapped this photo. I had eaten my lunch just minutes before I took the photo.

Also, while I was at the Pumpkin Festival in Houston, I bumped into two of my friends.  I actually went to school with both of these friends.  They are Daniel McGovern and Ryan Faraci.

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.

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!

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!
