Papa’s World – High and Low Tides – exceptional.

October is the month for exceptional HIGH and LOW tides!

I did not know that!

No – I did not go to this extreme to see where the tide came up to.

But – from our Lanai one half mile away –

we could hear the BOOMING of the Surf!

So – Sherry looked it up and sure enough

we were in this week of very high and low tides!

So – we went for our daily walk in the morning

Just after high tide had been there

and I captured this photo!

HIGH TIDE CAME UP TO THE BOTTOM STEP

OF THE LIFEGUARD CHAIR! WOW!

And then in the afternoon – I snapped this picture

looking back toward the mainland

and down the beach – that same chair would of been

where the light colored sand is!

This was not even LOW TIDE YET!

I guess this happens once a year in October!

ME AND MY SHADOW!

This beach is very wide normally

during normal tides

and very flat and hard surface

you can wade way out if you want

not me – I saw a sand shark caught

within 20 yards of the beach!

Papa’s World – Loving our life – the SALT LIFE!

Living life one day at a time – in N.C and S. C. – THE SALT LIFE!

While we love Christmas – the lights -music – trees – – grandkids – leaving behind the cold – snow and ice – instead enjoying the sand and surf!

Toes in the sand – warm sunshine – blue sky and white clouds – our retirement dream come true!

Gingerbread houses – egg nog – Christmas carols – but we also have decorated boat parades and golf carts!

The beach – sand surf – and sand castles and sculptures – living the SALT LIFE!

We still root for the BILLS team of our roots in WNY! From the cozy sports bars here in N.C.!

PAPA’S WORLD – LOVING OUR LIFE – THE SALT LIFE!!!!

Papa’s World – Our patio – cool nights – relaxing with our Solo firepit – campfire on the patio.

In the world of camping – firepits – roasting marshmallows – I admit – I am not all that into it!

This was really my wifes idea – as she was growing up – camping – boating was what her family did.

I did all the normal young lad stuff – sleeping out under the stars( freezing in those NWPA nights.)

We sometimes had a campfire while on the hill sleeping out.

I was a scout and we did overnight camping in tents –

as a youth group counsler – we spent a week in the far northern Canadian Parks.

Canoeing and camping for a week with 14 young students – 7th – 12th. grade kids.

But it is not on my bucket list!

Sherry showed this picture to me – saying how would you like that on the new home patio?

It is called a SOLO STOVE – and once it gets going – smokeless!

It will burn more efficiently so it says – and is toasty warm to sit around with no smoke and sparks!

OKAY – I say – thinking there goes my couch – snacks and Netflix!

So now – we buy little bags of wood ( $$$$$$) and those little tiny firestarters!

I prefer those wrapped in paper logs that you light and they burn for like 4 hours! LOL

So now I am an official campfire sit-in back patio sort of guy!

I really did not expect this – and yes – once it starts – there is no smoke or sparks.

It does get toasty warm – so much so that sometimes you have to move back!

We have the perfect set up – almost sheltered on three sides – concrete slab – comfy chairs.

And when the family came – Marcus and Tammy and the three little ones ( I call them) we had a fire each night!

And they had SMORES!

We even went scaveger to find old dead wood in the woods behind and across the street!

Do you know when the tempature gets in the low 50’s – snakes become almost inactive?

Otherwise – that was a no-go for me!

I have been converted – I am a SOLO STOVE convert – basking by the firepit – no shoes – no socks and no problem!

Now – the patio concrete has been painted a slate gray ( I did that) two coats – and we have two small bags of wood to burn!

I still like the single wrapped in the paper log to burn for four hours which you can see here as a trial!

And – this SOLO STOVE is everything they say it was!

HHHHMMMMNNNN – ARE JELLO SHOTS NEXT?

I am now a firepit official starter –

” PASS THE MARSHMALLOWS HONEY –

PUT THE CHOCOLATE ON THE GRAHMCRACKERS ”

get ready for some warm toasty evenings –

BEDTIME IS STILL 8 PM. FOR ME!

SOME THINGS NEVER CHANGE!

PAPA’S WORLD

Belief , Faith and Positivity – REACH FOR THE STARS.

2014-10-24 08.30.09             What to look for in a home based business.

Many times when you attempt a HOME BUSINESS , the biggest obstacle can sometimes be ones self! You just have to get out of your own way !   Ask yourself not WHY ?  But HOW you can accomplish what needs to be done.

During my years I have learned that success for me has come in the form of three principles that I follow.

BELIEF :   Believe in what you are doing – follow your heart – ones belief is a potent force when you apply it to your convictions. Stay the course – remember – in order to succeed – take care of all the small things and the larger problem will most likely take care of itself.

FAITH :  Listen – observe – and then have the FAITH to act. Plan – ask questions – and then formulate a plan of action – list your goals and have the FAITH to act on them. If you have FAITH in yourself and those around you – you are on your way !

POSITIVITY  :  I was asked once to give my impression on the HALF FULL vs.  HALF EMPTY GLASS .  To me , it is neither HALF FULL or HALF EMPTY !  There are two ingredients that are involved here.  AIR  &  LIQUID.  Without one or the other , you can not survive as far as I know!  The Glass has both – both essential to you and your team !  Positivity is something I wake up with every day. I always look at whatever is positive in the situation and act on it !

In a home based business – and with a TEAM – what comes out of you goes into them !  LEAD FOR SUCCSS !

I hope this little bit goes a long way in helping you overcome the fear of leadership – look at your team and then look in the mirror. Your team will be reflected back to you !

If you are interested – then go to  http://www.sf.juiceplus.com or drop me a email at fitztdf@aol.com.

The first is my wife’s web site and you can navigate – just look for the business – product and research.

If you contact me – we can send information – my wife retired with this business.

Go forth and have a great day !

Papa’s World – Feeling good – Helping others – pass it on!

What makes me feel good is either doing a kind act or passing on to another a kindness done for me!

And it does not take a lot – opening a door – waiting for someone to walk by!

My wife and I often clean out our closets and head to goodwill or habitat for humanity.

Giving what we can at church and also on on special occasions.

Smiles – kindness – gratitude- blessings – helping others – our lives!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – my site: livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – Thanksgiving day walk on Sunset Beach – N.C.

Fat Harolds – Carolina Opry – beach – shopping – Boundry House to eat – Christmas boat flotilla –

Ocean Isle Beach golf cart parade – more shopping and exploring the upper end of OIB.

It was a good four days – tired but got a lot in.

Papa’s World – Welcome to my world – OIB!

We have now lived here for 17 months – where did that go? Our home is most likely ( hoping) our last major move.

We decided on moving here – near the borders of N.C and S.C. because it was still within 61/2 hours and 8 hours of our families in NVA.

We have close friends who live about 33 miles away and more close friends who are building in that same area.

We enjoy our location for the close access to the beaches and major shopping and golf while still having that country feel.

While we do have the threat of Hurricanes – we are not in a flood zone. Having gone through category one – we have decided on anything past an category two – we most likely will leave.

We enjoy the 30- minute drives to shopping at the outlet mall and the many offerings of shows and entertainment of Alabama Theater and Carolin Opera!

Sunrise on OIB with boats racing for a fishing tournament – warm weather – ocean breezes in summer-time

lead to what locals call down here “THE SALT LIFE”!

PAPA’S WORLD – WELCOME TO MY WORLD – OIB – N.C.

Papa’s World – Sharing good thoughts and cheer!

Select your news – read – there are good happenings out there – be informed – but be careful – fact check!

Give what you can – when you can – smiles – thanks – gratitude – kindness – are free!

Help feed the hungry – open a door for someone – a little act like this – brings thanks from the needy.

Papa’s World – LIVING THE SALT LIFE!

People down on the borders of N.C. and S.C. call this “Living the Salt Life” as we are so close to fine beaches!

We live four and six miles from two of them – Ocean Isle Beach and Sunset Beach!

However, we are thirty minutes to more than another three beaches.

Neither of us like the cold weather – ice and snow – much prefer the sun and sand this area has to offer!

THE SALT LIFE – ten minutes in a car away – we are on the beach yet we live in a no flood plain – back on the mainland!

We are so grateful that we are able to do this – retirement – living life to the plus!

Thank you for reading a glimmer of our SALT LIFE!

SHERRY at sunrise on OIB – PAPA’S WORLD – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog “LIVING THE SALT LIFE”!

Papa’s World – Life in the Carolinas!

Tough choice – made easier by the drop back in 2020 for our 401K –

but also the increase in the value of the housing market!

We decided to sell – our daughter and family had moved – not far away – about thirty minutes on a good day of traffic!

But – before they were a mile away – we would pick up the little ones from school and have the youngest sometimes also.

It was an easy walk to their home and we spent a lot of time with them.

But it was the 401K – losing 30 plus % – yet the house gained more than that!

Another door had opened – an adventure awaited – we disclosed our plans – and we said we would be within an easy days drive

6 to 8 hours – but someplace warm and near a beach!

We also wanted to golf – for far less expensive than it was in NVA!

After a couple months of searching – we found our beaches – Ocean Isle Beach and Sunset Beach – one four miles and the other six miles away – we wanted to stay on the mainland – and not in a flood zone – we found Cameron Woods Community.

We built our home – six to eight hours from our NVA families – they have come to visit numerous times and we have been back the same.

We live right across the street from four 18-hole golf courses and are within 30 minutes of another twenty-five!

We have new friends and neighbors – and are close to dear friends we have had for 35 years.

Our life had changed – we went through that door – it was not easy –

now we are in the twilight of our years – but every day brings new adventures and experiences.

A new day begins – another day to explore and live the Carolina life – thanks for reading PAPA’S WORLD – OUR LIFE!

PAPA’S WORLD my site: livinglifedoingitmyway.blog fitztdf@aol.com OUR CAROLINA LIFE!

Papa’s World – Life in general – living healthy.

We grow our own produce year-round on our back patio.

You also can see my wife’s sun tea on the table to the right!

Since I had a heart attack almost eight years ago – I LIVE ONE DAY AT A TIME!

We walk almost every day and try to play golf once a week!

One of the reasons we moved to the border of N.C and S.C. – was to be near the beach – which we are very near two of them!

We also find humor in a lot of people- places and things!

This is but a small view of our life together for 42 years.

Thank you for reading PAPA’S WORLD – my site: livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

PAPA’S WORLD – LIFE IN GENERAL – LIVING HEALTHY!!

Papa’s World – Living life one day at a time!

Our little family picture about 12 years ago – since this picture – our grandson Bode was born and today is 8 years old!

We are also retired now – moving from NVA to the border of N.C. and S.C.

We now are in our retirement house – about four miles from the beach.

My sons from my first marriage and their partners – on the Sunset Beach Pier.

They remain in NWPA where they grew up – we transferred to NVA for our jobs and they stayed behind.

Today they work in the energy field of state and power companies winterizing homes for the elderly.

We live our lives one day at a time to the fullest we can manage. Retirement has been good to us and the weather here is what we like.

Bode – who is following in the footsteps of his older cousins playing soccer – I hope one day to follow him in college like we do with his cousins.

Enjoy your children – enjoy their youth – it goes so fast – and soon they are gone also!

Papa’s World – Watching the BILLS at the LAZY PIRATE

We traveled to Carolina Beach, N.C. to the LAZY PIRATE – A BUFFALO BILLS BAR!

Being from WNY – we were fans of the BILLS from the mid-’80s to when we left in 1999!

We still follow them and try to watch them on TV.

Sometimes we know where different BILLS bars are and go to watch.

Our close friends Buck and Cindy were our neighbors back in WNY and moved first to Leland, N.C.

Through all these years they remain staunch BILLS fans.

Our neighbor Diane and her husband Steve are both from WNY and have a cottage on Rushford Lake where they spend their summers.

A perfect venue to watch the games and of course when they score the song “SHOUT” is played and everyone joins in.

FAMILY and Friends enjoying the game!

Papa’s World – A little dinner get-together with neighbors at Local on the Water in NMB!

We had 13 peole who made it – good time – was very loud with the music – hard to hear – and we were spread out!

The music was country western and very good – I would go again to just listen and watch them.

The venue here is impressive – but if we come back I would want to eat in the back room where we could talk and visit – and maybe in smaller groups where we could see everyone and hear them.

But – for dancing and or just listening to the band – AONE in my book!

Our little neighborhood group – plus several could not make it – good times – good company –

Papa’s World – Taking the ladies to the driving range!

Sherry and two other neighbor ladies wanted to hit balls so I took them.

MARCEA to the left and DIANE to the right.

The ladies will go to Sandpiper on Monday late afternoon for a golf lesson and nine holes of play!

So the two above wanted to hit some golf balls just to get their swings back.

We talked about it and I said I would drive them to the range!

I also hit a few down at the end.

I asked the owner if we could hit off the grass instead of the mat and he put us over on the side!

THIS IS ME – I lose a lot and find a few – but I just like being out there!

SHERRY – DIANE – MARCEA – I took the photo – they soon were hitting the balls – I gave some instructions –

and they all appreciated it – now if I could only follow my own advice! LOL

PAPA’S WORLD – TAKING THE LADIES TO THE DRIVING RANGE!

Papa’s World – Papa and Sherry – beach & golf and shopping! Retired with part-time income!

This is me! LOL, but we do enjoy golfing – by ourselves or with friends!

Sherry and Papa – married for over 40 years – together for 42 years! Living now what is called THE SALT LIFE!

We are retired – although for the past sixteen years – Sherry has owned and operated a network marking business!

Allowing us to retire in N.C. in Cameron Woods Community, Ocean Isle Beach!

We are four miles to one beach and six miles to another beach.

Here we are with a neighbor on Sunset Beach – relaxing in the sun on a weekday – living what locals call THE SALT LIFE!

We found this little piece of paradise – where the temps are moderate during FALL – WINTER and SPRING!

It can and is HOT in the summer – but we find the ocean – with a breeze – more than comfortable.

5 to 10 minutes and we are sitting on the sand!

The beach was a major factor in choosing this area – but also – love to golf!

We are within thirty minutes of over 30 golf courses!

Four of them are right across the street!

We can choose whatever we want to play!

Now – we are not all that good – but being out in the open on the golf course is what we love.

We have purchased what is called the first tee – which gives us major breaks in what we pay each 18 holes!

32 different courses – just call up and make an afternoon tee time!

We like playing afternoons as most people like to play before noon!

Major shopping – outlets and big box stores – are only a thirty-minute drive for us down Myrtle Beach.

Sherry and Papa at Tanger Outlets – Myrtle Beach – S.C. Thanks for reading Papa’s World – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – On OIB for sunrise – boats racing out of the bay!

Papa – predawn – on Ocean Isle Beach by the groin – waiting for sunrise, cool enough for a hooded sweatshirt – SALT LIFE!

The beginning of the sunrise over the groin on Ocean Isle Beach, N.C.

Sherry standing against the beginning of the sunrise. We could hear this sound coming from the bay behind us – I thought

it was an airplane as it got louder and louder!

We lost count at 40 as fishing boats raced out of the inlet beyond the groin wall – spreading in all directions!

The loud noise we heard was the roar from the boats as they came out of the inlet to the open ocean!

I can only guess that it might have been a fishing contest and this was the start!

A police car parked to the right of us on the beach observing the boats racing to the ocean!

Whatever it was – it was loud and echoed across the inlet!

PAPA’S WORLD – we not only see the sunrise – but hear the boats racing out to the ocean – an added bonus to our

visit OIB for the predawn sunrise – thanks for reading – my site: livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – laugh a little – smile a lot!

Papa’s World – TRIFECTA- Watch the BILLS – VOTED EARLY and sit on the beach in 75-degree weather!

We lived in WNY for 50 years – we were there when the Buffalo Bills went to four straight super bowls!

So – it is somewhat of a treat for us to watch them on TV down here in N.C.

Mostly it is the Carolina Panthers on tv down here.

Watching them on tv on a major network was the first of a trifecta couple of days for us.

Our first time voting in N.C, and we decided to vote early – we were able to find a parking space –

which is a win-win – no line so to speak – just a few people – another win-win –

The election workers were pleasant – helpful and did a great job!

No one being rude – no deniers present – or watchers –

this is what it is supposed to be.

The air was warm – the sun was hot – the temps were 78 degrees – NOVEMBER 1st. !!!!!!!

The water was chilly although we did see some people in.

For the time of year, I thought there were quite a few people!

Being able to do this on a whim – sit for an hour – relaxing taking in some rays!

Papa’s World – Cameron Woods – neighbors have a Halloween Party – can you think Stranger Things and Good Witch!

Sherry and I were invited to Harvey and Joanne’s house for a Halloween party – bring a dish to pass – beer and wine were provided!

Of course, we also brought jello shots as did others – To be honest – that is all I had besides some water – I LOST COUNT!

There were some perfect costumes – a couple I did not know who they were until they told us! ( the people)

It was a blast – music – dancing – food – beer – wine and shots!

We left after four hours and walked home – good thing we walked!

It went on for another two hours!

We missed a block party while we were back in NVA!

On Halloween night – I set up the SOLO STOVE in the driveway –

A few neighbors brought chairs and a table and we again had some SHOTS –

no kids trick or treated but we had three hours of just sitting and talking – Impromptu –

Great neighborhood –

Sherry and I went as her – The GOOD WITCH and me as the pizza guy on STRANGER THINGS!

Papa’s World – Conway, S.C. – the HALLOWEEN CITY!

We took a little trip to Conway – about one-half hour away – we had been there two years ago – only on a Sunday

when all the stores were shut down –

We wanted to revisit when they were open and to our surprise – Conway is known as THE HALLOWEEN CITY!

Everywhere all the trees were decorated as were the stores outside and inside.

The trees seem to have grown pumpkins and as a store owner told my wife – when Hurricane IAN came through – not one pumpkin came down in the rain and winds!

Walking the streets – full of stores and a lot of historic churches.

A beautiful river walk – and a theater with blood coming over the roof and down the front showing the musical “CARRIE”!

Thanks for stopping by – CONWAY, S.C. – HALLOWEEN CITY! PAPA’S WORLD – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

While not major destruction, there were a lot of branches and some trees down.

We dodged a bullet – but it still was a force of a one when it hit , winds up to 70 mph.

It was more of a small problem but still needed cleaned up.
The beaches sustained some erosion.

It was scary watching the tree line and the trees bending side ways!

There were five of us who together blew off the yards and got rid of the branches and leaves.

It took us about five hours working together to clean uphe yards of five neighbors –

some of whom were not here!

All in all – our first experience with a hurricane –

deciding anything more than a two we will leave.

Sherry afterhe storm and all cleaned up!

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – both alike – both so different – twins.

Cassidy and Taylor on their 10th. birthday with mama Tammy. Who also shared the same day as a birthday!

Recently – two pictures were taken

one of each girl

Taylor and Cassidy.

My gosh – when did they look so grown up?

Cassidy with MORMOR & Ginger

Cassidy – the little of the two

actually – their difference has about stayed the same

but now Taylor is growing fast

she is going to be really tall

like her MORMOR – Sherry!

MORMOR in Swedish is MOTHERS MOTHER!

This is all she wanted when small

Cassidy had dozens of stuffed Panda’s

all lined up by her bed

today she is the TECHIE one

and the CRAFT one.

She also is a perfectionist

everything has a place

and she knows right away if anything has been moved!

Note how neat her desk is.
Taylor – going to be so tall – she looks a lot older her than ten years old!

Taylor – whom I think will be taller than Ella ( 5 ‘ 8 1/2 “)

and Sarah at 14 (5 ‘ 6 ‘) and going through a growth spurt.

She is laid back – needs her own TAYLOR TIME –

And loves horses and riding!

Her room is full of stuffed horses and horse toys.

Taylor who rides once a week

We have been monitoring them at the start of the school year.

But – we are now gone

It has its challenges

for both the twins and the monitors.

It also is Bode’s kindergarten year

But – we are glad we have been a part of it for the start.

We will be gone for five months

coming back for Holidays

BIRTHDAY GIRLS!

They still are so alike – I can not tell the difference

if they get excited – and I hear them talking.

Yet – they have different interests

so alike yet so differnet

when they all three sing

you do not know who is who!

As a monitor for two weeks – TEACHERS DO NOT MAKE ENOUGH!

I will not be surprised when we come back

the changes in both of them

it is not that Cassidy is small

but Taylor is really tall for her age!

Papa’s World – Growing up in the 50’s – TV programs.

Goodday – from Ocean Isle Beach, N.C.

A long way from the mountains I grew up in NWPA!

As a child growing up – I remember many programs I would watch on our black and white TV.

Sky King – Rin-Tin-Tin – Cheyanne – Wagon Train – The Rifleman – Have gun will travel –

Adventures in Paradise.

To name but a few – I remember playing on the front porch and we were talking about Grandpa –

He was little Timmy’s grandfather on “LASSIE” and he had passed away in real life.

Many shows were educational – Romper Room – and Kaptain Kangaroo!

I grew up with this cast from Captain Kangaroo!

I do not remember all the names – but the faces are still real to me.

Mr. Rogers and Captian Kangaroo

It was a morning show – as was Romper Room.

As was Commander Tom!

Commander Tom – out of Buffalo N.Y.

But Sunday nights were really special for me – at 7:00 pm.

We all gathered in the living room – my dad included.

And then the music – we only had THREE TV stations.

ABC – CBS – and NBC!

It was a magical time – before Disneyworld

The shows of Disney were the best in my mind.

I still can hear the music in my mind.

Thank you for going down memory lane with me!

It was a magical time in my youth growing up in a little town on North Main Street in ELDRED PA.

TV programs were a way for my imagination to see the rest of the country.

Even if they were in black and white.

I have many more memories of back then to tell and will in blogs to come.

to Randolph College to watch Ella’s soccer game.

First – we would watch Maddy play – tons of food from all the tailgaters – live music

Alum games in Lacrosse and then a file hockey game –

Women’s soccer and then men’s soccer.

It turned into a beautiful short sleeve day! Sunshine – lots of folks wandering tailgate to tailgate –

smells of food and great company!

Papa’s World – Goodmorning from Cameron Woods Community, OIB, N.C.

On our walk back to the house from taking care of two cute dogs while owners are away – SUNRISE!
And once again – a look to the East on the same walk!

It is so peaceful and quiet on the road in our development before all the workers arrive in front of Sherry!

Sherry – in our driveway after walking back!

If you want peaceful settings in the country – yet only four miles to the beach and six miles to the other-

than Cameron Woods Community – OIB – just might be where you want to look!

But look fast as only 35 to 40 homesites remain.

When completed – some 150 homes will be here – along four ponds – a walking trail and a beautiful community center.

Two to four miles to Food Lion – Publix and Lowes and several gas stations and bars and grills.

Four golf courses right across the road and summer live concerts live 3 or 4 days a week within 8 miles!

Our home!
