Papa’s World – onto the Lazy Pirate – Buffalo Bills bar !

Buffalo N.Y.
home of the BILL’S

We finished golf – changed and headed out to Carolina beach –

to the LAZY PIRATE – a sports bar – open air – covered

wild Buffalo Bills bar !

The Lazy Pirate

During our many years back in NYS – we were Bills fans –

all through the years up to the four super bowls

and beyond.

For three years after we moved – we tried to follow them.

But – alas – in the DC area – they were not to be found

unless we went into the city every Sunday

to find the Bills places !

This was and is Redskins country !

How ever our friends remained
loyal followers
and no matter what
find the game somewhere
each and every Sunday !
The crowd is picking up !
They kept filing in !

I was surprised – I met and talked to people from back home

All with their red- white and blue

true Bill’s fans !

Even met Eric – who was in a band for ten years
with a lady both Sherry – Jim and I worked with
at the tile plant
in Olean NY.
Donna !
As you can see – open air – covered
and corn hole in the yard !
Waiting for the call !
Dottie Cindy Jim
Cindy – rabid fan !
Bills score !

The place was nuts – everyone shouting !

The BILLS make you want to
“SHOUT”

It was a great time –

Had the real wings from Buffalo !

And some had the “BEEF ON WICK ” !

Victory song
” SHOUT “

All things come to a close-

we spent the day golfing and watching the Bills

Laugh – joke – and friendship

Papa’s World – after the escape room – GOLF !

Good morning
Of course – part two of why
we are all together
Guys vs. Gals
GOLF

That is what we do – and this has been on going for years !

This time we only played nine holes –

On Sunday morning – as we also had to hurry home-

change and rush to a PIRATE BAR to watch the “BILLS ” !

That is my next blog – but today – we gave strokes !

As much as I did not want to – we did ! LOL

before we had to be there
at 8:00 AM.

for I guess 15 years
or more !
Cindy Dottie Jim Buck
greens were fast even with dew on them !
While every one else was putting
Sherry was chasing ducks !
LOL

The match was nine holes –

We had to give them THREE STROKES !

And two replays ( do not know about that )

Jim made that deal !

Me – after all these years

know better

they will kick your butt !

Plus – we had to use everyone’s drive at least once

Ended up using Bucks four times – mine three times and Jim’s twice.

They started us on the back nine
of 27 holes
The Azalea course
which the 24 th. fairway
runs right behind their house !

behind Cindy and Buck’s
house in Magnolia Greens

The gals went out first –

and we could tell if they were playing good

The antics on the green we could see and hear !

The three of us that are retired
keep telling the youngsters
that this is what you have to do !
YEAH RIGHT !!!!

The course was in really great shape –

and we never saw anyone until the 24 th. hole

a two some playing behind us !

selfie before they started off

The gals played well – we could tell that this was going to be tough !

We watched them tee off – all three right down the middle-

That is their game

US – it is right or left !

They took a picture on one of their drives

all three balls were right beside each other

in the middle of the fairway !

Buck Tom Jim
The three amigo’s
friends
Jim and I go back
to playing softball
in the late 70’s early 80’s
Buck and I
39 years
We watched as all three
hit this island green
par three – with water on three sides
they were putting for birdie!

We were sailing right along – one under par after six holes!

We were getting ready
lots of chatter

We were playing good – actually making putts !

One putted first three holes !

Jim checking score
That is when we started to sweat

Those THREE STROKES were going to be big in the end !

DON’T GIVE STROKES
they will kill you
they never lose balls
and are always in middle
and on the green most times
in regulation !

Jimmy – on 24th. fairway
with Buck and Cindy’s house
in back ground
across the pond !

We had boggy’s on the last three holes

and they were watching and waiting for us on the last hole.

Giving them the three strokes

we ended up winning by ONE STROKE

and if we had not one putted those first three holes

well – as always – luck plays a role !

Papa’s World – Can we escape the escape room ?

Buck and Sherry

The reason we all met in N.C. is because Cindy –

for a Christmas present –

had SIX TICKETS for a escape room

at THE EXIT GAMES in Wilmington !

And of course we decided to make a day of it

at the River fest in downtown water front !

then it was onto lunch
before heading to the escape room

lunch

We were going to be lock away for one hour in a room

looking for clues – solving riddles – finding keys –

and how to unlock the VAULT where all the money was !

We walked to the building and up the stairs

to the waiting room – we had a appointed time !

We were given instructions – some do’s and don’ts

WE HAD NEVER DONE THIS BEFORE

and were some what fortified with a few drinks !

We had no idea what we were getting into

HINT – on a 1 to 10 difficulty on your first try

pick a number under 3 !!!!!!

This was a NINE out of TEN !

Cindy – “WE GOT THIS” NOT !!!!!
Buck and Sherry
getting ready
before we are locked in !
MAYBE SHOULD NOT OF HAD THAT LAST DRINK !!!!
Sherry Buck Dottie Cindy
inside the room before it is closed and locked
and this picture before I was told
“NO PICTURES”
OOOPPPSSS !

This room is full of clues that no one has any idea what they mean !

And everything is locked –

And combination locks –

A lot of keys to be found –

and no idea what they unlock

because some are inside locked doors with combination locks!

And then the door shuts and locks
and everyone scatters
and starts looking
not knowing just what
they are looking for !

We had 60 minutes and a big clock that counted down !

Things were being found –

but no idea what they meant –

At least we were all
locked in together

The group did find clues and were able to solve some problems

and some locks were opened

and some combinations solved

but time was running out

and this huge BANK VAULT door loomed on one side of the room.

Then the clock ran out –

Sirens began –

COPS were on their way

we had to open the door and clear the room in 15 seconds !

We failed
recovered NO MONEY
heck – we still have no idea
how to solve the clues except
for one !

One clue – a picture – and a pair of binoculars –

We were told the picture was of a building down the street outside

You look at the small picture and see the date that it was built

was XXXX off !

You had to take the binoculars to the window

find the building

and find the date built !!!!

Who would of thought of that !!!!!

Papa’s World – all here enjoying the company

GOOD MORNING

We all were there by 10:30 PM.

And of course – until Jim and Dottie arrived –

The four of us played a dice game called

Mexican Train – a first for me !

A view over the pond
to the golf course
from the back patio

We decided that the next day would be walk in morning –

( Cindy and Sherry )

while the rest rested up

and had coffee looking at this view

My favorite room
of this house
I can just imagine
a gentle rain
and the rumble of
thunder !
Sipping coffee
watching the course
being watered !

I have always liked this area of N.C.

Twenty minute car ride to the beach

but far enough away from the storms

Magnolia Greens has 27 golf holes

And another twenty minutes to down town Wilmington !

and Sherry

Later in the day – we would head to Wilmington

To the river fest – lunch –

use up the six tickets Cindy had as a Christmas gift

To be locked up in THE ESCAPE ROOM !

Spend a long weekend with friends –

And we have been friends for 37 years !

Tom Buck Cindy Sherry
on Carolina beach N.C.
for dinner

We would arrive first – Jim and Dottie would arrive late at night !

So – we planned to have dinner on the beach –

Carolina Beach N.C.

The weather was overcast – windy but warm !

And people were in the water – surfing and swimming !

Sherry Cindy and Buck

We stopped at a place Cindy had said was very good –

Dinner on the beach

Smashed red potato’s – corn on the cob – coleslaw and steamed shrimp

already shelled !

In Old Bay Seasoning !

It was really good –

Plus we had a few drinks with us !

A storm was rolling in –

Wind picked up –

chairs blew over

so we cleaned up and packed up

At the house – all friends here !

Papa’s World – The final walk and then goodbye – Jo & Paul

Jo and Paul

It was both a happy and sad day – our final walk together –

and – this walk was on their bucket list –

for I had posted many times the pictures of Sherry and I walking this path.

They found it beautiful as we do

and requested that we walk along the creek !

Where we live
Brambleton Va.

It was a quiet morning –

a little cool – around 56 degrees –

but with lots of sunshine

and soon the jackets came off !

Jo Paul Sherry
at the top of the trail

During the visit – Paul and I had discussions

the politics of the day

the discord and unending drama that happens each and every day.

The stress is not worth it.

I described to him my three critiques for every day –

One – post a smile

Two – post a good thought –

three No Politics !

Sherry Tom Jo

And those are my rules I follow –

I also write about my life – family and friends –

and I try to do that daily –

Jo and Sherry

I do this to capture my thoughts –

through pictures and words –

So after I am gone –

a record remains where friends and family can read –

where those memories are preserved –

My thought on life
Sherry and Jo

We discussed stress – we discussed life –

Paul Jo Sherry

We discussed life in general and living

We discussed how no matter what we post –

the only difference it makes is to our selves !

Jo and Sherry
Sherry and Jo
heading back home

Change has to come from with in –

And no matter how we feel

we can not change someone else.

Today – we make a change by voting

and then vote again when it is time

Living by my three rules

Looking for what is good

Life has enough stress
