I have lived my life – 70 plus years –
I guess I am allowed to make that choice above
But at my age – I choose not too!
But – in my youth – a glass of cold milk
and oreo cookies
That was so good!
I think about this often
I know that my years left are waning
So – in my mind I make my bucket lists
and I WRITE – for I want to leave a legacy of memories.
If you text me or phone me at this time of night
I will return it on my time – 5 am. !
I am not a evening person
I am a morning person
and at my age –
I am not going to change
a life time of habit.
For whatever reason – I can not spell!
I think it goes back to grade school
They changed how we were taught
from the standard sounding out words
to memory – I use both now
and I am a terrible speller!
After a couple years – they went back to sounding out words
I wonder if I am right?
If my age group is like this?
I do not think about writing –
I do it for myself!
I do it to leave my thoughts and happenings
to the generations coming
a diary of sorts with pictures
a book not published – but memories stored
Urged on by my wife to put it down
where it can be found and not lost in the Cloud!
The memories are mine -as I remember them
Today kids are on phones and Ipads
I wonder what the future holds
What inventions will come forth
This is a exciting time to be alive – to see
To live it and be a part of it!
The kids learn from the phones and Ipads
at least our grand kids do
They now are doing Minecroft
And I am still trying to learn how to spell! LOL
I post every day on face book
something funny – to laugh
I post something good – to be positive
And I post a combination of the above
To make a positive feeling to start the day!
This is but who I am and why I write
I do not know most of you
my 183 followers
some of you I know
I have a little time left I think
and I plan to make the most of it
see places spend time with family
and write about it.
after all – in my family I grew up with
I am almost the last
My mother was almost 98 when she left us.
And she would often tell me
Of all the people she knew –
she was the last – no one was left
and I wondered about that
and how she felt –
I am beginning to understand her!
Thank you for reading Papa’s World
Hoping to be writing for a time to come
WELCOME TO PAPA’S WORLD
WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY
