Derek Papakie Turns 30 Today!

Today, I would like to wish my cousin, Derek Papakie, a happy 30th birthday.  Derek is one of the classiest people I have ever known.  He is both a fantastic friend and a terrific cousin … and he has been a terrific father since last July.

Now, in the first half of the 2010s, Derek and I were “twinning” a lot.  We would wear matching T-shirts, matching jackets, matching sandals, matching sports jerseys, matching hats and even matching polo shirts.

So, today, I would like to say “happy 30th birthday” to Derek Papakie.  Happy 30th birthday, Derek!

Joseph is still “super” three years later!

Three years ago today, I got my grey Superman T-shirt … and I’ve worn it many times over the past three years.  I usually wear it with blue jeans and nice shorts, but I may have worn it with dress pants and white jeans as well.  No matter how I wear it, I always wear it with class.  I may wear it with sweatpants or gym shorts in the future.

I have owned this grey Superman T-shirt for three years … and I’ve worn it many times over the years. I have worn it with white jeans, dress pants, blue jeans and nice shorts … and, in the future, I may also wear it with sweatpants and gym shorts.

Me, and my neighbor, Michael Spicer, have worn our grey Superman shirts many times over the past three years.

Thomas Papakie, who is one of my uncles, was able to wear the grey Superman T-shirt with me back in December of 2018.  We both wore them with class back then.

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

I still like my grey Superman shirt a lot … and I hope you guys do also.

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For February 2020

I am back on my computer again.  I started using it at 5:00 this morning … and, today, I’m gonna tell you about the blog posts that I will be writing down in February.

One of my blog posts will be entitled “I have owned my new Hewlett-Packard computer for one year!”  I will talk about my new Hewlett-Packard computer, which has been in my house for nearly one year, in a blog post this month.  It seems like I just bought it yesterday.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Remembering Piglet Five Years Later.”  In the blog post, I will talk about the five-year anniversary of the death of my bulldog, Piglet.  Piglet, who was my bulldog, died nearly five years ago at the age of 12.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Joseph is still ‘super’ three years later!”  I will talk about my grey Superman T-shirt in the blog post.  I have owned it for nearly three years.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “7,500 Views And Counting.”  My blog will hit the 7,500-views mark … and, if it does hit the 7,500-views mark this week, I will talk about it in a blog post before this week is over.  Of course, it is possible that it may have hit the 7,500-views mark while I gave my computer a break this past week, so I may have to say that it has been seen at least 7,500 times in the blog post this month.

I will also write my 1,300th blog post this month.  It could be about a person, a place or a thing.  What do you think it will be about?

I will also use my blog’s features in February.  Let me tell you how I’ll be using them this month …
Joseph’s Flashback-I remember going to the pool in Scott Park years ago!
Joseph Has A Question For You-Should I listen to WESA on my clock radio?
Joseph’s Moment Of Peace-I need some “me time” in my “computer room” at 6:00 on weekday evenings!

I am still a “Macho Man” two years later!

I have owned my purple Macho Man shirt for nearly two years now.  I really like the shirt a lot … and I have worn it many times since I got it.  I will continue to wear it many more times in the future.

I would also like to thank my friend, Joe Cohen, for inspiring me to own a classy shirt like this one.  We wore them to Bee’z Bistro and Pub in South Fayette twice in the last two years or so.  We wore them there in May of 2018 and in January of 2019.

Next time, I will show you my top blog posts for the year 2019 in a two-part blog post.  You may remember some of the blog posts that I will be showing you guys in the two-part blog post.

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For December 2019

The month of December is already here.  That means 2019 is almost over … and, in a few weeks, it will be 2020.  I will be giving my features a break this month, but I will bring them back in both the new year and the new decade.  Today, I will tell you about the blog posts that I’ll be writing down in December.

One blog post will be entitled “I still have my Nike Air jacket one year later!”  I will talk about my black and white Nike Air jacket … and I will tell you why I still like it one year later.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “I am still stylish in my Christmas sweater one year later!”  I will talk about my red Boston Terrier sweater, which I have owned for almost one year now.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “Joseph needs some false teeth!”  This past Tuesday, I got two of my upper teeth removed … and I may need some false teeth in the future.  They would go on my upper teeth.  Maybe I can get either flexible partial dentures or dental implants.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “I have owned my Motorola smartphone for two years!”  I will talk about my phone in the blog posts.

Another one of my posts will be entitled ” I have had a cardigan sweater for two years!”  I will talk about my grey cardigan sweater, which I bought at the now-closed Sears store at South Hills Village, nearly two years ago.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “I have owned my grey Michael Kors jacket for four years now!”  I will talk about my favorite jacket, which I have owned for nearly four years now.  It would turn me into “Mr. Classy” just days after I bought it at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx in December of 2015.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “I am still a ‘Macho Man’ two years later!”  I will talk about my purple Macho Man shirt, which I have owned for nearly two years.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “Joseph Recovers From His Oral Surgery.”  I will talk about the day that I recovered from my most recent oral surgery.  I recovered from it for a few hours this past Tuesday.  It was a quick recovery, to say the least.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “Happy birthday, Nicholas Ciesielski!”  I will wish my friend, Nicholas Ciesielski, a happy 34th birthday in a blog post on December 8th.

I will also give you a two-part blog post entitled “Joseph’s Top Blog Posts Of 2019” in December.  In it, I will give you the top blog posts of the year.

If everything goes well, I will write a blog post entitled “‘Mr. Classy’ and his ‘stand-in’ now have extra class!”  I was supposed to write the blog post in November, but “Mr. Classy” and his “stand-in” were not able to have extra class then.  Hopefully, that will change this month.

I hope you will like the blog posts that I’ll be giving you as we wrap up both a great year and a fantastic decade.  Hopefully at least one of these blog posts will catch your eye.

I have owned my Zombie Hunter shirt for one year!

Can you believe it?  I have now owned my Zombie Hunter shirt for one year now!  I bought the shirt at the Wal-Mart store in Raceway Plaza on October 24, 2018, just hours after I got my flu shot at Bridgeville Giant Eagle.  The shirt is very classy … and I have worn it many times since I got it.  It can be worn with jeans, nice shorts or nice pants.  Two of my friends have this shirt also … and, just last month, I saw someone wearing the shirt at Washington Crown Center.  I hope you guys still like the shirt as much as I do.

Let’s Talk About A Past Blog Post: Celebrating Five Years Of Friendship With DJ Joe

In October of 2013, I became friends with DJ Joe, whose real name is Joe Cohen … and, just last October, I celebrated five years of friendship with him by writing a blog post entitled “Celebrating Five Years Of Friendship With DJ Joe.”  In the post, I talked about my friendship with him … and I was inspired to write the post because I wanted to talk about a classy person like DJ Joe.

Here’s the link to the blog post …
Celebrating Five Years Of Friendship With DJ Joe (October 10, 2018)

Now, just so you know, I have now been friends with “DJ Joe” for six years … and the purple “Macho Man” shirt is still the “de facto” shirt of our friendship.

Joseph’s Green Volcom Shirt Is Full Of Class!

IMG_20191007_124151678
On October 7, 2019, I got a classy green Volcom T-shirt in the mail. The shirt is full of class. It also tells you that Volcom was founded in 1991. It also says “Creative Liberation” on the shirt.

Yesterday afternoon, I got a classy green Volcom T-shirt in the mail.  It tells you that the company was founded in 1991 … and it also says “Creative Liberation” on the shirt.  Now, underneath of the word “Volcom,” which is in cursive, you can see the words “America’s First Boarding Company” on the shirt.  It may have something to do with either snowboarding or skateboarding … and I’m pretty sure skateboarders and snowboarders wear Volcom shirts regularly.  I don’t do either of those things, but I know I will be wearing my Volcom shirt with class many times in the future.

Now, yesterday afternoon, just after I got the shirt in the mail, I was able to wear it with jeans and laofers.  I really like the shirt … and it fits me perfectly.  I will try to wear it with both shorts and jeans in the future.  I snapped two photos of myself wearing the shirt.  I snapped one photo in my “computer room” … and I snapped one photo in my bedroom.

As you can see, I really like my green Volcom shirt … and I will do my best to wear it as often as I can in the future.

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For October 2019

Three quarters of the year 2019 have almost been completed … and the weather is about to get cooler.  Now, today, I’m going to tell you about the blog posts that I’ll be writing down in October … and, yes, my features will be coming back for the first time in several months.

One of my blog posts will be entitled “Joseph’s Possible Halloween Costumes For 2019.”  I will show you three possible costumes that I might be wearing on Halloween night this year.  I will tell you which costume I’ll be wearing in 2019 in a blog post entitled “Joseph’s Halloween Costume For 2019.”

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Happy 5th Birthday, Scarlett!”  I will wish my cousin, Scarlett, a happy 5th birthday in a blog post.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Joseph’s wisdom teeth have been gone for four years now!”  I will celebrate the event by talking about it in the blog post.

My 1,225th blog post will be about either a person, a place or a thing.  It could be about either anyone or anything.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “I still have my new glasses one year later!”  I will talk about my glasses, which I got at Three Guys Optical last year, in the blog post.  Sadly, Three Guys Optical is no longer in Collier Township.  I will probably get new glasses somewhere else in the future, if I ever have to get them.
