Celebrating more than 10 years of friendship

During the second half of my blog’s fifth year, I will give you a chance to revisit some of my posts from my blog’s fifth year. Today, I will give you another chance to revisit a post from my blog’s third year. I wrote the post in January of 2007 and it’s entitled “Celebrating 10 years of friendship.”

In the blog post, I was talking about my 10-year friendship with Justin McKean. We became friends at South Fayette High School on January 23, 2007 … and he was one of the three substitute teachers that I had on that day. All three of my regular teachers were off on that day. Since then, we keep in touch with each other as often as possible. Over the past 12 years, I have talked with him in e-mails and on Social Media … and I do bump into him in person either once or twice a year, mainly at our local festivals. He is also able to be cool, casual and classy on some occasions … and, in some ways, he has inspired me to follow suit in a way. Since I wrote this blog post more than two years ago, Justin is currently not a fellow WordPress blogger like he was back in early 2017. That may change in the future. All in all, Justin is a terrific friend … and I will try to bump into him at least one time this Summer.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around May 17th in previous years …

Joseph Pratt's Interests And Some Other Things

Ten years ago today, I became friends with one of the coolest and classiest people that I have ever known … and his name is Justin McKean.  On that day, he was one of the three substitute teachers that I had while I went to South Fayette High School on that day.

Since January 23, 2007, Justin has been my teacher, my friend and also my fellow blogger … and we still keep in touch with each other regularly.  We also bump into each other once or twice a year at local festivals.

Back in July of 2016, I bumped into Justin at McSummerfest … and we took a selfie while we were there one evening.

Say Hello To Victor Iagnemma!

Today, I am writing my first blog post of 2019 … and I would like to start the year off by telling you about a person that I bumped into while I was walking through Bridgeville Giant Eagle on Christmas Eve.  I also bumped into this person at Bob Evans, which is located on Route 50 near Kirwan Heights.  The person’s name is Victor Iagnemma.  He’s a teacher at South Fayette High School … and we works mainly in the school’s athletic wing.  You’ll usually find him in either the gym or the fitness center.  Well, anyway, while I bumped into him at Bridgeville Giant Eagle, I snapped a selfie with him … and you’ll see it below this part of the blog post.

Say hello to Mrs. Kurchena!

Today, as we wrap up the month of July together, I would like to tell you about a terrific lady named Carol Kurchena.  For years, she worked at South Fayette Elementary School … and she was one of the teachers there whenever I went to that school.  I may have had her for a class or two back in the ’90s.  I bumped into her in September of 2016 whenever I went to the Iron Creek Bar and Grille with my relatives … and, just a few days ago, I bumped into her at Bridgeville Giant Eagle … and I snapped a selfie with her.  You can see it below this blog post.

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!

Joseph bumps into “Mr. Pete!”

A few weeks ago, while I was at the Bob Evans restaurant in Bridgeville, I bumped into a teacher that I had not seen in over 10 years.  Well, yesterday, while I was at Colussy Chevrolet in Bridgeville, I bumped into a teacher that I had not seen since at least the late ’90s.  He was actually one of my teachers at South Fayette Middle School.  In fact, some of my relatives had him while they were in school as well.  Two of those people are regular followers of my blog.  That teacher’s name is John Petersavage, who is also known as “Mr. Pete” to his students and some of his fellow teachers and workers.

On February 16, 2018, while I was at Colussy Chevrolet in Bridgeville, I bumped into John Petersavage, who used to be one of my teachers at South Fayette Middle School. His students and his fellow teachers and workers called him “Mr. Pete.” Some of my relatives had him as a teacher whenever they went to South Fayette High School. Two of those relatives follow me on my blog regularly.

It’s always exciting whenever I get to bump into people at various places in and around the Pittsburgh area.  You never know who I might be bumping into next.  It might be someone that I hadn’t seen since … the 1980s.

It happened on August 24, 2014! (Part 2)

In the first part of this two-part blog post, I told you about a person who became one of my Facebook friends on August 24, 2014, which is also the day that I started this blog.  Well, today, in the second part of this two-part blog post, I’d like to tell you about a teacher who became one of my friends on LinkedIn on August 24, 2014.

Now, I didn’t have this teacher for any of my classes while I was at South Fayette High School in the 2000s, but I would sometimes see this person whenever I would walk around the high school.  The person’s name is Joseph Silhanek.  We became friends on LinkedIn on August 24, 2014.

Thank you for checking out my two-part blog post on my blog this week.  I hope you enjoyed it as much as I do.  I will give you guys some more interesting blog posts, beginning next week.  Enjoy your day!

I haven’t seen you in 10 years!

Yesterday morning, at around 10:30, I went to Bob Evans with a few of my relatives.  As I was leaving the restaurant, I was walking past the restaurant’s side door … and, as I was peaking through that door, someone was standing in there.  I was a little bit stunned whenever this occurred.  Then I would open up the door … and I would see one of my old teachers, who was standing near that door.  I had not seen this person since I left South Fayette High School as a student back in the summer of 2007.  I may have seen a photo of this person online from time to time, but I had not seen this person in person since 2007.  We were able to talk for a few minutes yesterday morning.  Now, let me tell you who that person was.  The person’s name is … Victor Iagnemma.

Joseph’s Dream: One of my old teachers is teaching me again

This week, I will be putting my three rejected features to use in my blog posts.  Those rejected features are “Joseph’s Dream,” “Joseph’s Two Cents” and “What Is Joseph Eating?”

Then, on May 31st, I will ask you guys which one of my new features I will be adding to my blog.  I will add the new regular feature to my blog in July.

Today, I’m going to use one of my rejected features in a blog post … and that rejected feature is “Joseph’s Dream.”  In this dream, I am being taught my one of my old teachers … and she taught me some things while I was in the sixth grade back in the late ’90s.  Also, some of my classmates were in the classroom with me.  The teacher’s name was Tammy Guy.  Whenever she taught the class, she would almost always do it with a smile on her face.  It was a rather interesting dream, in my opinion.

Later this week, I’m going to use another one of my rejected features in a blog post … and that feature is “Joseph’s Two Cents.”
