Papa’s World – show a little LOVE!

We went to Lynchburg Va. to watch our grand daughter play soccer.

Our oldest daughter – her husband and the three grand daughters

all were there – the next day we went for a walk along the river.

Mike Sarah ( youngest) Maddy ( oldest – college soccer) Ella ( senior – college soccer in the Fall)

We watched the game Friday night in the rain – Maddy scored a goal

And the next day – after her practice – went for a walk along the river.

Sarah ( 5’7″) Ella ( 5′ 8 1/2″) Maddy ( 5′ 6″) Sherry ( 5′ 9″)

The girls are tall – Sarah seems like she will be the tallest as she is only 14.

But – when we were home at our other daughters house-

Taylor who is only ten years old – is already 5′ 1/2″ tall!

I think she will be the tallest along with Bode.

Our walk lasted a couple hours

as we were going for a late lunch and a early dinner

Debby ( Mom) already shorter than her daughters.

We walked – a fun walk – a lot of laughter!

Maddy Sarah Ella

It was a fun afternoon – a break from the rain – warm enough when walking

to enjoy the time together.

LOVE!

Debby Mike Papa Sherry Sarah Maddy Ella

Thank you for reading Papa’s World!

LOVE!

Our three oldest grand daughters!

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 !

We went to Southport, N.C. before going to Caswell Beach on Oak Island – to meet friends!

We wanted to explore it a little bit more the Southport area!

What we found was the waterfront with all these places to eat and sit and watch the boats go by!

There were a lot of boats going by!

We had the best view while having lunch – and this bay is very wide – a warm breeze – a drink –

Papa’s World- our World of health – Juice Plus

At the conference in Tampa Florida.

Our busy lives – our family – both our close family and what we consider our family of Juice Plus.

The journey began 13 years ago – and for us it was simply changing our life style – getting healthy – knowing that after we retired – we wanted to remain in life active as we had been in our early years.

Here we are – both 40 years old – playing not rec volleyball – but smash it in your face. The Beach Club – fond memories – we had to do something to maintain that competitive edge.

In the above picture – we had been married 7 years – and are to the far left at age 40 ! I had always played sports – softball until I was 38 years old – basketball for a radio station – and at age 46 after volleyball – golf.

On one of our golfing trips back home in NWPA.

Today – we golf as much as we can – but are busy with our lives – our grand kids and our in home business of The Juice Plus Company. We started this business as a way to pay for our product – and after one year – knew that we had to get our family and grand kids on it for health reasons. And then it started to grow – and grow . All from home while working full time in our Career business of TILE !! Yes – we worked a combined 79 1/2 years for the same company !

Part of our Juice Plus Family Team – from across the Country at the Conference in Tampa.
NOTE – I AM THE ONLY GUY !!! LADIES GET IT !!!

Working for Corp. America is a dream when you are young – but can and did become a very stressful – unbearable lifestyle that we both wanted out of ! That is when we really took a look at the business side of Juice Plus. We were already distributors ( cost $50.00 a year ) – and were sharing it as the belief grew stronger and stronger with changes in our combined health. It became time to move forward – so a team developed – and it got bigger and bigger – just sharing – today we have two QMND’s and one Senior under Sherry – with one QMND walking the stage in October.

My step daughter Debby Taylor Meyers and my wife Sherry – just before we went to the Elton’s in Nashville Tenn.

Debby is almost there as a new NMD – (National Marketing Director) and we will most likely watch her WALK THE STAGE in Austin Texas – where she will give a speech before 8000 people – and recognized by the Juice Plus Company. Something that has changed her and her families lives ! Her daughter will receive up to$1750.00 per year for college! As one of her perks for being a NMD !

Part of our Juice Plus family and team.
I REALLY NEED SOME GUYS TO BE THERE WITH ME ! LOL

We have made a dramatic change in a lot of lives – both in health and wealth. We retired – Sherry at age 63 – me at 64 – leaving behind successful careers – going full time in the Juice Plus business – traveling the Country – promoting health and showing how people can take control and work for themselves – living life to the plus one day at a time.

On one of our golf trips -“The nineteenth hole ” !

This August – we will tour Northern California – then in October – Austin Texas – then late January – all of February and early March – Florida – getting out of the cold ! All the while working from home on the computer and phone no matter where home is !

Our life has changed – to the good – no STRESS – maintaining a healthy lifestyle – playing golf – seeing our grand kids grow up-watching them go off to college – and most important – watching our two daughters pursue their own dreams of independence and life styles in health and nutrition.

Our road to success is a road map and we have a team following it – there is no ” I ” in TEAM – but there is a lifestyle out there – one that WE choose – and is one YOU can duplicate – TIME -LOVE – HEALTH – you just have to want it !

For more information go to http://www.sf.juiceplus.com – Sherry’s website – email – look at the site – you get this for $50.00 for a year !

You share – you take the order – send it in – the company process’s it – packages it – delivers it – collects the money for it – and sends you a commission every month ! You carry no inventory -you just share it like you would a good book or movie !

You get a whole new World full of people just like you who want to be healthy and wealthy and sharing life to the plus.

Papa’s World – The beginning and end of a good day – in between sitting by the ICW in the park!

In this case – we found a place in the park!

We had an early morning walk – the sun had already come up and it was the beginning of a good day!

Cameron Woods Community – looking East!

After walking in the community – we decided to go to Sunset Beach and see what was happening in the park on the mainland side.

This park sits on the banks of the ICW – and has these giant live oak trees –

providing shade – paved walking trails and benches to sit on.

Also – three-person glider swings – all facing the water!

In a small portion of the park – people bring their own chairs.
Our view as we sat on a glider-swing!
One going fast and one going slow – as it is in life in general! The views of the ICW!

We had restrooms nearby – picnic tables and a shelter – a car nearby and walking distance to ice cream!

Places to eat were also close by – as was the boat launch.

In the couple hours we were there – hundreds of boats came by on the ICW!

We will go back – take our chairs – cooler and food – find a place in the shade and just relax.

A 15-minute drive from our home in Cameronwood Community – on the mainland side-

SUNSET BEACH PARK.

Thanks for reading and once we got back home the sun was starting to set –

an end to a very good day!

Papa’s World – Just things in life!

Is there anyone out there that does not look at themselves in a mirror

and wonder
“HOW DID THIS HAPPEN”? LOL

Things in life – we eat to survive – but we also do by habits!

Evening sunsets!

Things in life : We look at the heavens –

wondering – seeing painted pictures.

The stars at night – the Moon and planets – clouds – storms –

the wonder of nature –

The questions – WHO WHAT WHY WHERE WHEN all form when looking toward the heavens!

We move about – we share thoughts – we adapt and we move on.

The things in life – ever changing – the World revolves –

We age – we think back –

and then – you are a senior –

Where did it go?

Our minds are a wonderful place – we see and then we re see!

Sometimes it takes a second –

but we mostly can tell!

Things in life do not always seem to be as we see them!

THINGS IN LIFE: PAPA’S WORLD – WHERE FAMILY MEETS FRIENDS

Papa’s World – honoring those who have served past and present – Memorial day.

My stepfather John Soules

My own father passed away when I was nineteen years old – ten years later – my mother remarried

and John Soules Jr. became my stepdad.

I knew he was in the war – but he never talked about where or what he had done.

I knew he had been wounded – but I did not know how serious.

I knew he captured a German SS officer out of uniform in a castle.

But I never knew about all the meadals.

After my mother passed away – I came across this write-up of him in her box of memories.

I was once told by a friend if the family named SKEET –

“You know your stepdad is a real-life war hero”!

After reading this I understood what he was talking about.

Thank you John “Jr” – for what you did – RIP. A true WWII hero.

Sherry’s mother and father – Barb and Bill.

He became like an older brother -father to me after we were married.

He made me promise to never tell anyone what he told me about the war.

So – I have not said much of anything except what he said I could.

One story was about him and several men in fox holes in the darkest hours of the night.

It was very cold and snow on the ground.

They could see movement across the span of white snow.

They were scared and thought the Germans were going to creep upon them.

They spent all night watching and waiting – barely breathing and so cold.

Any moment they expected an attack and were so scared.

In the dawn, they could now see what they thought were German soldiers

was leaflets that had been dropped from planes on the ground.

Some had been caught on bushes and were fluttering in the breeze.

This was a story he said I could tell and later it was funny to him and the other men.

But for that period in the night – it was hell waiting.

William “Bill” Overbeck

In the end, he was in Berlin and was a driver for a general.

He told of going to a movie theater and watching newsreels.

I wish I could say more but he made me promise so I will honor that

as I honor another WWII hero.

Thank you Bill for your service and RIP.

You have my word.

Our decorations to honor all who have served this country

Honoring those that have served – past and present – on Memorial day.

Papa’s World – Cameron Woods – the beauty of the coming twilight!

Sunset Beach, N.C. from the pier.

After spending the day here at Sunset Beach – one of the top ten beaches in the country –

we drove the short ride back to our Cameron Woods Community.

Arrived home after several hours at Sunset Beach to our home.
My good thought for the day!

After dinner and having a small sprinkle of rain – I went outside in the clean fresh air – warm –

and beheld the night early evening sky!

The end of the day at Cameron Woods Community.

It was a good day – one that we spent at the beach and then back home once again.

Cameron Woods – the beauty of the coming twilight!

Papas World -in the world of business – Fruits & Veggies!

Are you searching for a opportunity?
A way to work from home part time?

We were -13 plus years ago –

what was at first a way to pay for our purchase-

To doing The Business part time –

To retiring and have a supplemental income

To be able to travel – (read my blogs over 200)

And once retired to remain in our home

near our grand kids!

It is a very simple product – fruits – vegetables – berries –

put into capsules for you to take two of each everyday with water!

And research proven that it immediately goes into the bloodstream

repairs cellular damage – and boosts the immune system

along with other proven research facts!

Over 30 published researches from major institutions

around the WORLD!

And if you have a hard time swallowing
THERE ARE GUMMIES!
GREAT FOR CHILDREN!
And – as a bonus – children – ages 4 to 19
are FREE!
When a adult purchases the product
one child per adult purchase
gets it free for up to FOUR YEARS
as long as the adult continues!
And COLLEGE STUDENTS

The GUMMIES come in FRUITS – VEGETABLES and BERRIES!

We use them for snacks rather than candy !

Need a PROTEIN drink
a drink for breakfast – lunch or work out!
A way to cut fats – calories from large meals!
Then our two powered drinks
DUTCH CHOCOLATE
FRENCH VANILLA
I just add crushed ICE
a cup of Soy or Almond Milk
Water and whatever FRUIT
I want -in a blender
and it fills me up!
THE DRINKS ARE PROTEIN
GLUTEN-FREE NON-GMO
LOW GLYCEMIC
FIBER & VEGAN

We also have bars – to use as a snack or in place of a meal with the drink!

The bars are Protein – Fiber – Non-Soy –

Vegetarian – Gluten free –

Non Dairy & Low Glycemic!

The Published research says it all
NSA approved for pro athletes

So – how is the business and what to expect?

It all depends on yourself!

You can do it part time as we did for years

or – full time – it is your choice

but know either way – you have a support group!

You can follow this
or do this!
Or SHARE a concept of health and nutrition
much as you would a movie – a book
or a favorite vacation spot!

We started the business part time

to pay for our purchase each month

and then to get all our grand kids started

each of the six have taken Juice Plus either all their lives

or the majority of their lives!

We eased in and then saw the benefits

then we simply shared- first with our family

then our friends with the help of our sponsors!

The steps to success
and success is at every step!
Those whom you sponsor
because of their own effort
can pass you on the steps!
It is completely up to you
or them how to progress
You still get a commission
on their efforts either way!

The Juice Plus Business plan is fair-

It allows you to go at your own pace

and you never lose what you gained!

Once you have achieved that step

You do not go back down

and those that you sponsor as a partner

can progress above your step!

The cost of HEALTH & NUTRITION
less than a coffee at Starbucks!

The cost is less than that treat that you might buy

It really is affordable

Papa’s World – when golfing – Irish eyes are smiling!

Good day to Ye!

My wife is of a Swede descent – and I am of Irish descent.

Our friends – he is also of Irish descent – and I think she is also.

The smiles of golfing friends!

We have known each other for almost 40 years!

And when we first started golfing together – Sherry and Cindy had not golfed!

They made fun of us washing the balls while they wore gloves to keep their hands warm!

That was back in WNY where we all were neighbors!

Papa – after hitting his drive on a par three – we pared the hole!

Today – that is much different as they have gotten quite good!

Sherry and Cindy – after the rain started – this time we were even after seven holes!

We play a scramble – us vs. them – and lately – they have given us strokes –

it is hard to beat pars – and we can’t putt! LOL

But – friends – laughs and golf and smiles – make for a great day!

WHEN GOLFING – IRISH EYES ARE SMILING!

Papa’s World – building the – BRAIN one Omega at a time

For the last year plus –

I have been taking a OMEGA –

To try and keep my memory intact !

I have been told –

OMEGA’S are good for this !

In fact – I have been taking multiple OMEGA’S !

Omega’s 3-5-6-7-& 9

This is the newest product –

by Juice Plus –

And the big story here it is NOT made from fish oil –

But from ALGAE –

which is where the fish get it from !

And – secondly –

Juice Plus has its own ALGAE FARMS !

So – you do not have to worry about MERCURY

or the fishy taste !

It tastes like a ORANGE CREAMSISCLE !!!!

JUICE PLUS OMEGAS

This has become part of my road to good health –

( I actually take double – four capsules a day ! )

BUT YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER

Memory plays a big role in my life-

Writing a blog every day –

Thinking back to times gone by –

Seeing in my mind the Past –

So – I try as hard as I can to maintain that edge!

I do not want to go to the store to buy a fish –

Nor do I want to come home with a Rabbit –

I want the ability to WRITE ABOUT IT –

not live it !

It works for us –

It provides a insurance for us in what we do not eat –

I hope this helps you out there –

We have believed for 13 years !

Papa’s World – Sunset on the marshes of OIB!

The marshes of Ocean Isle Beach!

While many people all go to see the sunset at Sunset Beach – I think it is just as beautiful at OIB!

The church gazebo – is next to JINKS CREEK!

We parked across the street from the church and walked down through the lawn

to this gazebo – no one was around and we just sat down next to one another.

It was a little chilly with the breeze but the view was awesome!

Looking out across the marsh from the lawn of the church.

There were no signs to stay away – and no one was around –

It was quiet and peaceful.

Sunset at Ocean Isle Beach across the marshes.
After arriving back home – a brief shower and Sunset to the West toward OIB.

Thanks for reading PAPA’S WORLD – sunset across the marshes at OIB!

Papa’s World – Neighbors going North – saying goodbye on the beach!

Happy hour on Sunset Beach – neighbors going North.

We gathered at 6:00 pm. for some snacks and cocktails on Sunset Beach –

it was very windy but warm and at that time of day – we pretty much had the beach to ourselves!

The wind was so gusty – it blew my chair over after I got up!
We were there for an hour and a half – talking – laughing – Cameron Woods Community

A small group as it was during the week and many people were not around.

The Sunset Beach pier – entrance and parking lot.

Neighbors come and go all week long – some work from home – others retired.

Diane – Steve and Betsey – going North and back again.

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – keeping the mind sharp – remembering

Every day – I try to remember whatever I can about the past !

Some days – you are on top – others – well – you forget

Keeping up with memory – both short term and long term – requires concentration – at least that is my way.

I have little tricks I use to remember – like my keys – I try to always put them in one place when I am not using them – and when I go someplace – they always going my left hand pants pocket.

If they are not there – then I am in trouble – because in my mind I have to back track from the last time I remember having them.

I think food has a lot to do with it !

I think what food we eat – has a lot to do with memory – just how I feel.

Everyday – for my memory I take OMEGA’S 3 – 6 -7- 9 -made from algae. I really do not like the taste or after taste of fish oil – and I am not keen on fish and mercury.

Developing habits – I find helps me tremendously – find a routine and stick with it – when you vary – is when you forget – at least for me !

Find a nutrition supplement

When you deal with your mind – find a nutrition supplement – read the research – whole food is important – processed food is not – drink whole food when you can – plant based is what I eat and drink.

I hope this helps – short term and long term memory – keeping it for as long as you can.

For more info go to http://www.sf.juiceplus.com

Oh – I also read – I absorb interesting things – just little tidbits – you would be surprised when you answer what no one else remember – simply because you found it interesting somewhere along the way !

Papa’s World – In less than FOUR WEEKS – growing VEGGIES in Cameron Woods Community!

We have grown our own VEGGIES for almost ten years!

A neighbor saw ours and wanted to know more about it!

They made the purchase of the system and I went to their home to put it together.

Less than four weeks later – they asked me and my wife back to check it out and show them when to add water and nutrients!

The pictures here are what I found in less than FOUR WEEKS!

Front view of the system – and it must have sunlight four to six hours a day!
Side view of the growing system which has no dirt!

The system is grown only with water – air, and nutrients!

A pump is in the bottom reservoir of water – and is attached to a timer outside.

Water and nutrients are pumped up the center of the white tower –

where it trickles downward mixing with air on the roots of the plants.

You can start harvesting salads in a couple weeks with no pesticides!

From growing system to table!

No weeding – no pesticides that you do not know what they are!

Grown in your own residence – from seeds

anything that does not grow on a tree!

And with today’s cost of produce

it is a winner for you!

Growing and eating your own produce!
Our own growing system behind the chairs!

For more information and how to purchase your own growing system –

Marcus – Taylor – Bode – Tammy and Cassidy – and of course MARLEY!

Papa’s World – Golfing – Ocean Isle Beach – Sunset Beach – Cameron Woods Community.

One of the reasons we moved to this area on the border of N.C. and S.C. is the golfing!

We have almost 25 courses within 30 minutes of our location and we love to golf.

Our friends also live down here and we try to golf once a week with them.

Sunset Beach – we wanted near the beach and we ended up near two of them – Sunset Beach and OIB!
Ocean Isle Beach – both are within minutes of our home!
Papa on the course

Our community of Cameron Woods we chose because it was not clearcut –

a lot of old-growth is here and we love that!

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – nature abounds in beauty where we live!

Sunset over the marsh – Jinks Creek – Ocean Isle Beach, N.C.

We moved South from NVA which was where we thought we would stay in retirement!

But – then the Pandemic and the downturn hit – but our home value soared!

It was time – so we sold almost everything and came South –

to the border region of N.C. and S.C. – to OIB!

Break of dawn at our home in Cameron Woods Community, OIB!
Sunset from our home in Cameron Woods Community, OIB!

From our driveway, we get to see both sunrise and sunsets here in N.C. –

and we are only a couple miles from the beach!

Sunset Beach from the pier.

We are close to two beaches – Ocean Isle Beach and Sunset Beach, N.C.

Nature in bloom – Sunset Beach.

Papa’s World – Part two – golfing Brick Landing Golf Course!

Sherry hitting off the fairway with the sights and sounds of the marsh in the background!
View of my tee box – senior tees – ICW and pond in front!

The course is tight with water everywhere!

Be sure to bring balls!

Papa – selfie with the ICW and docks for boats along the fairway!
Sherry teeing off from the ladies’ tees – note how narrow everything is!

The course was very fun – we lost golf balls but found some also.

It was dry and needed rain – the balls just ran and ran into water!

After we both hit our tee shots – we ended up here by the 150-yard marker!

We actually used Sherry’s ball as it was about ten yards farther –

but we still had to go over another pond and to the green!

“You have to have BALLS to golf the BRICK” Landing Golf Course!

A beautiful day and we ended up on the beach – golfing – walking on the sand and surf.

Sherry – after a day of golf – then walking the surf of SUNSET BEACH, N.C.
From the pier at SUNSET BEACH, N.C.

Papa’s World – an old saying – “You have to have BALLS to golf the BRICK” landing that is!

House along the fairway at BRICK LANDING golf course – near Shallotte, N.C.

Thirteen minutes from home is an older course called Brick Landing.

Three of its holes run right along the ICW – and then across the road and along the marshes.

Papa standing on a tee box with the ICW in the background and boats speeding by!
Beautiful tree with the marsh behind it on the fairway!

The course has lots of water on both sides of the fairways –

and what seems like a good shot – well the ball runs and runs and soon you are in the water!

Thanks for reading – I will continue in the next blog – be sure when you play the BRICK – you bring BALLS!

Papa’s World – Cactus Flowers – Clouds and Sherry at Sunset Beach, N.C.

When walking into the entrance to Sunset Beach, N.C. – Cactus welcomes you along the walk to the boardwalk.

The flowers are bright yellow – and our little grandson was fascinated by all the Cactus!

After walking by the Cactus and yellow flowers – you walk the boardwalk and the ramp to the beach!

Sunset Beach – is mostly level once you get over the dunes on the boardwalk.

The ocean seems calmer here and you can wade far out!

PAPA’S WORLD – Believe in kindness!

Papa’s World – our day on the beach at Sunset Pier!

Voted as one of the top ten beaches in the country – SUNSET BEACH, N.C.

We live on the mainland of Ocean Isle Beach – in this picture at the top right –

There is a very tall building – that is the West end of Ocean Isle Beach – with a channel between the islands.

Sunset Beach for some reason – is leveler – and shallow – and easier to walk.

However – it is also more crowded.

The pier – from which Sherry took this picture – has a historical walk with picture stations on both sides.

Going back some 300 hundred years of history in this area.

It cost one dollar to walk out – however, we purchase a pretzel and a drink and it did not cost us anything!

Papa walking the surf – the water was 70 plus degrees and the temperature 78 to 80 degrees.

We walked for over an hour in the water – and it was warm.

This beach is more level and is easier for me to walk – my hip does not bother me here!

As my Heart doctor has told me – “MOVE”!

Thanks for reading Papa’s World – SUNSET BEACH, N.C. is a beautiful vacation destination!

PAPA’S WORLD – the PIER AT SUNSET BEACH, N.C.

PAPA’S WORLD – all at the same time – SUNSET – RAINING and a RAINBOW!

It was a light rain as I stepped outside on the back patio to see the sunset.
And behind me was a RAINBOW!

It was light rain all day – the kind that does the lawn and flowers just right.

And then – on the front driveway – I turned from the Rainbow and saw this!

Nature had painted the SUNSET – the rain still coming down and behind me was the Rainbow.

A fresh landscape – warm – wet – and the sky were painted white – gray blue and yellow.

It was the WHY we choose this home location.

Papa’s World – Shopping – walking Southport, N.C.

Southport, N.C. waterfront.

This was the first time – shopping in Southport!

Our neighbors Diane and Steve walk ahead with Sherry.

We came here for the market that was in the town park.

A lot of interesting vendors and local artists.

I bought a watercolor of the Kindred Spirit mailbox on Sunset Beach-Bird Island.

What drew me to this watercolor was the beauty and detail but also it was by a local artist named

V. Ryan Lauzon – who is 94 years old and still painting!

Her daughter showed me a picture of her and she is amazing!

I found this to be interesting – vine on brick building!

Waterfront in Southport where the Cape Fear River flows into the ocean.
Diane and Sherry walking the streets to find consignment shops!
Sherry and Diane are on a corner of streets full of little shops!

I even met the man who started GOLF BALLS for WOUNDED WARRIORS – Bob Duke!

He cleans and packages thousands of donated golf balls –

displays them all over the county – and sells them for $5.00 and $10.00 a dozen –

and every penny goes to WOUNDED WARRIORS!

He has made $100,000.00 of dollars for the nationwide WOUNDED WARRIORS PROGRAM!

Papa’s World – spotting GATORS while golfing at Sandpiper – and then watering my lawn’s backyard.

Two very large GATORS sunning on the bank of a pond!

I have golfed here four times and never saw a gator until this time golfing with Jim – a neighbor.

He spotted them as I was driving the golf cart!

And – they were large – maybe ten feet!

Later – we saw a small one laying more on the fairway next to a pond.

I have become accustomed to seeing them here in the south and we have several in the ponds

in our Cameron Woods Community!

later that day – after the lawn had been mowed – I ran the sprinklers in the backyard.

Here is one of two palm trees we had planted – and I make sure they have plenty of water.

I fill a five-gallon pail every two or three days and pour it over the middle.

The tree line behind the house is protected wetlands – none will be cut down.
We have bird feeders back there and added a hummingbird feeder and they have already come!

The back yard is our quiet place – a solo stove – tower garden and seating along with the lanai.

A funny thought for the day!

Papa’s World – drive home – beautiful sunset – next day – birthday – paint the front porch floor!

I painted the floor of the front porch on my birthday!

The day before my birthday – we celebrated by going golfing with our close friends.

Then – after dinner at the club – we drove off into a beautiful sunset.

The beginning of our drive home to the west and Cameron Woods Community.
It was such a pleasant drive after an afternoon of golf!
The next day was my birthday and I celebrated by painting the front porch floor – relaxing in my own way – quiet time spent doing what I like best – improving our new home!
I have wanted to do this for a long time – but had to wait for the warranty to fix the crack and fill it in – and then I sanded off and put two coats of paint down – took me a few hours but I loved what I was doing on my birthday!

The day prior we went golfing with our friends the McBrides at Carolina National Golf Course.

Cindy Sherry and Buck

Friends for a very long time – they live some 30 plus miles from us – and we play once a week when we can.

Buck teeing off

We were playing a Fred Couples signature course in Carolina National just outside Supply, N.C.

Cindy baked me chocolate chip cookies as a birthday gift.
We were almost the last group out for the afternoon and we played nice and easily enjoyed the wildlife such as this large turtle crossing the fairway.
Sherry was about to tee off and placed it right down the middle.
Sherry – victory in the guys vs gals golf scramble!

Thanks for reading Papa’s World – my next blog is the ride home – sunset and then the next day – my birthday was spent painting the floor of the front porch – and I loved it!

Papa’s World with three oldest granddaughters and Sherry

Papa’s World – The life we live over the years.

On one of our many trips with friends

We have explored and traveled the World together and with close friends.

Even today – where we have settled into our home – we take the offbeat paths –

exploring – looking – finding small visual treasures!

Family – Capital in the background in DC.

When in NVA – we lived close to the nation’s capital –

often taking the metro in with the grandkids.

Walking and exploring – visiting the museums.

Attending THE ELTON’S with Debby

Twice a year we travel either the East Coast or the West Coast for the national conference.

Seeing old friends and meeting new ones – TEAM GENERATIONS was born of this.

Barb (GIGI) Debbie (sister) Sherry Papa 8-31-2004

Somewhere in Denmark – Norway or Sweden – on our 1400-mile excursion – by bus – for 10 plus days.

It was a dream for everyone to go to where Barb’s mother and father were born.

We only twice stayed in a hotel for more than one day!

We saw so many beautiful things and places and even loaded the bus onto a huge ferry

and made our way down or up the fiords – with hundreds of other people.

The most exotic thing for me to eat was Reindeer!

The old buildings are hundreds of years old – the rune stones –

Sherry and I went off by ourselves and toured old town Stockholm and then the new city.

Eating big breakfasts is the major meal of the day!

A trip we have in memories and locked away in our minds.

In a garden in the middle of Sarasota, Florida

A trip we made to visit our friend Ginger at her condo on the waterfront.

A place we considered retiring to but for the distance away – it was a possibility!

Someday we hope to return and explore more.

Shares a toast with her sister Debbie in the Villages, Florida.

Before my brother passed away – we spent winters with him at his home in The Villages.

It was a unique time in our lives – riding the golf cart everywhere – playing golf with him.

A time that I shall always associate with Roger – my brother and how we were the only ones left.

The Villages – I also could have lived in – but HAPPY HOUR came too early and too long! LOL

The day before my birthday – we celebrated with our close friends – Buck and Cindy –

She even baked chocolate chip cookies for me!

Cindy Sherry Buck – Carolina National – a Fred Couples course.
Sherry is about to tee off right down the middle.
We play a scramble – guys vs. gals – Buck hitting from where my drive ended up.
Cindy – perfect form and they whipped us pretty well!
Sherry – senses victory – they played great – us – not so good – but I got the cookies!

Carolina National – outside Supply, N.C. second time we have played here – a good course!

After we finished up at 6:30 pm. we headed into the clubhouse for dinner –

although they quite handily won the scramble – we always have fun

and will get together again to continue our years-old match of gals vs guys!

Papa’s World – In with the new – outside with the old!

Good day everyone – welcome to Papa’s World – no politics – only fun – family – friends and good thoughts!

“I ordered a new rug for the lanai,” said my wife!

You see – we just had it inclosed as you can see in my previous blogs.

And – true to our concept of BEACH THEME – she nailed it!

It is so bright and fun to be in and sit looking out at the green yard and palm tree and treeline!
Looking at the lawn – solo fire pit and the new palm tree – one of two and the protected forest behind us.

So now with the new rug, we decided to move the waterproof mat outside on the open patio!

For the time being, it will be out here – and will be centered – our thoughts are to buy some used wicker chairs – paint them a bright color and make a little sitting area along with the two high seats for the solo stove and have room for guests to visit!
View from the fire solo stove back to the lanai and rocks instead of mulch.

We are slowly getting it all in place – landscaping and such.

We are holding off on painting inside until after the one-year warranty.

Now we are experimenting with flowers and how they react to the warm summer weather.

The lawn is looking really good as I have fertilized it myself.

When we sold the last home – we sold all my outdoor lawn devices –

keeping a few to trim trees and bushes.

Shovel to dig with and a couple rakes.

Lawnmowing we have hired done every 14 or 15 days.

” IN WITH THE NEW – OUTSIDE WITH THE OLD”

Papa’s World – Tiki Bar – Jinks Creek – Sunset!

Papa’s World – no politics – just smiles – families – friends – life to the plus.

We drive past Jinks Creek every time we cross the causeway and go to the beach –

Ocean Isle Beach that is.

Back in October a couple of my buddies were here and we golfed –

after, we came to the Tiki Bar on the top floor for dinner and drinks.

What a sight it was with the sunset – looking out over the water and marsh.

I had tried to get Sherry – my wife to stop in many times –

but she thought always it was too expensive.

Finally, she agreed – and after some beach time, we stopped just to have drinks.

She was impressed at what she experienced!

The beginning of the sunset.

The clouds parted
And then the magic of sunset on the top deck of the Tiki Bar at JINKS CREEK!
She was glad we had come – we split an appetizer and had a drink .

They have been friends for going on 38 years or more –

one drives the cart – the other hangs on! LOL

They talk and talk and talk and then they laugh and laugh and laugh some more.

We – Buck and I – play them in golf and they give strokes!

They are tough to beat.

We have traveled the world together on adventure-filled vacations.
Fun times with great friends.

Talk of retirement for Cindy – golf – scrambles – laughter and shots – pars are shots! LOL

Papa’s World – After dinner – once again on the beach – SUNSET that is!

Nature paints the skies at sunset.

We were excited when we moved near the border of S.C. and N.C. – a ten-minute drive to the beach.

A lot of nights we just look at each other after cleaning up the kitchen and “LET’S GO”!

Ocean Isle Beach is a ten-minute drive over the causeway and to the sand.

However – we really like to drive the extra five minutes and go to Sunset Beach!

Here we drive to the far west end and park and walk the long boardwalk over the dunes.

The view up the beach east to the pier.

Even at this time, the beach is busy with people – swimming – walking, or catching late rays from the sun.

The beach here is flatter than OIB and we like that!

This evening the wind was coming off the ocean causing the waves to be higher.
All in all – a great evening to just relax by the sea!

Sunset Beach after dinner – one of the WHYS we moved here to Cameron Woods Community.

They have lived in a lake community for sixteen years and recently one of the boat slips

became available and their name came up to have it!

For years and years, they have wanted to have a boat but would have to tow it

down to the marina to launch.

Mike and the new boat.

So – they decided to go ahead and buy this boat and surprise the kids!
