All those years ago –
I am guessing 1988 or 1989 –
We – Sherry and myself – started playing volleyball in a 16 team league.
This was not your typical back yard game –
but you had better be ready –
Or you would get smashed in the face with a spike !
It was Co – Ed – and almost everyone was good –
A lot played in tournaments in NYS – Pa. and surrounding states.
This past three days – our friends of old – spent their long weekend with us.
Welcome to Papa’s World –
where good feelings – good thoughts -health & smiles happen !
We were known as ” THE BEACH CLUB ”
fitting because we all took our vacations to what ever beach we loved.
Ours – Sherry and myself – was the Outer Banks since 1981 !
Steve and Elaine Starks – from Portville N.Y. – came for a visit-
And – after all these years – still are playing volleyball !
Although those years are past for us – we still get together – play golf –
Play cards ( last night we played a card game called GOLF)
And explore the NVA – DC area –
we have taken them almost everywhere the past twenty years !
Our LOVE of life has stretched for over 32 years –
Vacations to Myrtle Beach – graduations – birthdays and holidays.
And always a get together when we visited back home
Along with playing golf at our favorite courses when we lived there.
Friendships that last years and years –
Even though distance is between us –
The excitement of those times we are together –
Enhances the fun – the GALS vs. GUYS –
And sometimes – it is us vs.them – as in Elaine and I –
Steve and Sherry – last time they beat us good !
The years go by – we remain friends –
there is a group of us –
Four couples – SWNY – NVA – Va. BEACH – & Wilmington N.C. –
Who stay in touch – plan golf – and visit – play cards – sing a little –
Have a shot or two of fireball –
And Laugh –
That is who we are – PAST MEMBERS OF THE BEACH CLUB !
