Joseph’s Flashback: Joseph Meets A Disc Jockey At The Mall At Robinson!

I have been to The Mall at Robinson many times since it opened in October of 2001 … and I went there on the day that it first opened its doors, which is October 26, 2001.  I have met my friends and my relatives there many times over the past 17 1/2 years … and I may have met a famous person or two there during that time period.

One of those famous people is Dan Dunlap, who was a disc jockey at WISH 99.7 from 1986 until 2014.  I met him at The Mall at Robinson several times over the years … and I have gotten my picture taken with him almost every single time.  WISH 99.7 is the adult contemporary station in Pittsburgh, by the way.

Joseph has met former WISH 99.7 disc jockey Dan Dunlap at The Mall at Robinson several times over the years … and he has gotten his photo taken with him just about every time. This photo is from December of 2012.

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 28th in previous years …

“Mr. Classy” Goes Shopping!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

On March 14, 2019, “Mr. Classy” went shopping in both North Fayette and Robinson Townships for a few hours.  Before I went on this shopping trip, I went to Bridgeville Giant Eagle … and, after I went on the shopping trip, I went to Imperial Shop ‘n Save.  Even though temperatures were in the 70s that day, that didn’t stop me from wearing my grey Michael Kors jacket to my destinations throughout the day … and I also wore the jacket with shorts.  Yes, “Mr. Classy” is allowed to wear shorts on certain days.

At around 9:30 on Thursday morning, I went to Wal-Mart, which is located in the Pointe at North Fayette.  I was able to buy a few things while I was there.  I also snapped a selfie near the entrance to the store’s “Garden Center.”

At 10:30 that morning, I went over to Panera Bread, which is located in one of the smaller shopping centers in North Fayette.  It’s not too far away from Wal-Mart.  I had a terrific sandwich and a strawberry smoothie while I was there.

At around 12:45 on Thursday afternoon, I was able to check out Duluth Trading Company, which is located near The Mall at Robinson.  I didn’t have a lot of time to check out the whole store, but I was able to enjoy myself there, nonetheless.

Before I ended my shopping trip in both townships that afternoon, I was able to snap a photo of some clouds, which were in the skies above Robinson Township.  I was in the parking lot of the JCPenney store whenever I snapped the photo.

“Mr. Classy” was able to enjoy yourself on his little shopping trip this past Thursday.  Who knows where he might end up next?  “‘Mr. Classy’ says, ‘see you all later!'”

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 …

Joseph’s Flashback: Joseph meets a member of the “Jeopardy!” Clue Crew

This year, “Jeopardy!” is celebrating its 35th season on television … and WPXI, the NBC affiliate here in Pittsburgh, has aired the game show almost every evening at 7:00 for 31 years.  It has also aired in various other time slots as well over the years.

Now, the game show has some people who are part of its “Clue Crew” … and, back in September of 2005, while I was seeing the MDA Telethon in person at Monroeville Mall, I got to meet one of the members of the “Clue Crew.”  His name is Jimmy McGuire, who, like me, hails from the Pittsburgh area.  I was able to snap a photo with him while I was seeing the event in person.  I really had fun at the MDA Telethon.

I bumped into two people at Kohl’s recently!

Over the years, I have been able to bump into some very interesting people whenever I would go to various places in the Pittsburgh area … and, last Wednesday, I was able to bump into two people while I was at Kohl’s.  At around 10:00 a.m. on April 18th, I went to the Kohl’s store in Robinson Township … and, while I was there, I bumped into two people.  Those people are Sharon Hohn and Charlene Josey.  I did snap selfies whenever I bumped into these people … and those photos will appear below this blog post.  I guess you could say I got “two for the price of one” that day.  (No pun intended.)

You just never know who you will bump into whenever you go somewhere!

Good-bye, Bridgeville K-Mart

Yesterday was a somewhat bittersweet day for me.  Late yesterday afternoon, after being in Bridgeville for more than 42 years, K-Mart shut its doors in that town for the last time.  It had been in the Chartiers Valley Shopping Center, which is located in Collier Township, since August of 1975.  I have a lot of memories of me going to that store on a regular basis.  I visited that store for the last time back in February of this year.

I bought a lot of interesting items in that store … and I would sometimes eat my meals in the store’s restaurant as well.  I would usually go there with my relatives … and, sometimes, I would be there for long periods of time.  The store was fantastic … and I will miss shopping there on a regular basis.

Now, I don’t usually include web links in my blog posts, but since this is a rather unique moment for me, I will include one in this blog post.  I’d like to show you an ad for this K-Mart store, which is from August of 1975.  That was the first day that the K-Mart store operated in Bridgeville.

Here’s the link …
The K-Mart store in Bridgeville opened up their doors for the first time! (August 28, 1975)

I will remember this store for a long time … and I will miss it very much.  Good-bye, Bridgeville K-Mart.

Joseph’s Persistence Has Finally Paid Off!

For as long as I can remember, I have been friends to a classy person named Shawn Landy.  We both went to South Fayette High School together in the 2000s.  In recent years, I have made several efforts to bump into him in person, but, sadly, I would end up failing to do so.  I do talk to him on my social media sites regularly … and I occasionally send him text messages on my smartphone.  We have talked to each other on the video-chatting features on both Google Hangouts and Messenger.  I would be able to talk to him face-to-face without actually bumping into him in person.

Now, yesterday afternoon, at around 12:30 or so, I would finally be able to bump into Shawn in a public place … and, in this case, it was in the Sears store, which is at South Hills Village.  As you might have guessed, we actually wore our leather jackets at the same time … and we actually did that on Google Hangouts at around this time last year.

On December 10, 2017, I finally bumped into my friend, Shawn Landy, at the Sears store in the South Hills. We were both wearing our leather jackets at the time.

As you can see here, my persistance has finally paid off!

I saw some clouds above a shopping center recently!

Now, yesterday, I told you about the classy jacket that I purchased at T.J. Maxx a few days ago.  Well, I actually purchased it on August 18, 2017 … and, just moments after I purchased the jacket, I walked over to the Dollar Tree store for a couple of minutes.  While I was sitting outside of the store, I was able to see some nice-looking clouds in the skies above the Great Southern Shopping Center in Bridgeville … and I snapped two photos of those clouds on a Friday afternoon.  There were all kinds of clouds in the sky at that time.  They were very nice to look at.

Joseph will be pretty busy this April (Part 1)

As we get ready to wrap up the month of March, I’d like to write a two-part blog post about the things that I will be doing during the month of April.  I will be getting ready to celebrate my 30th birthday in one form or another in April.

In the first part of this blog post, I’m gonna talk about some of the items that I might be buying for myself for my 30th birthday this year.  I have a little bit of everything on it.  Now, I can’t tell you specifically what’s on that list, but let’s just say that my shopping list has clothes, DVDs and other interesting gifts on it.  Hopefully I’ll be able to buy most of the things that are on my list.  I will also be buying some party supplies for my 30th birthday as well next month.

Tomorrow, in the second part of this blog post, I’m gonna tell you about the big blog posts that I will be writing during the month of April.  Again, it will have a little bit of everything in them.
