Our daughter Debby and her daughter Maddy – memories from long ago!
Debbby and Maddy – from 2001 – our first granddaughter!
Today – she is a senior – having completed her fourth year as a Hornet at the University of Lynchburg soccer program
and as a captain in her senior year.
Twice going to the NCAA tournament in her four years and winning the Conference title in her senior year.
Our little granddaughter will graduate this spring with an Environmental Science degree!
My two sons from my first marriage – Troy on the left and Shawn on the right.
Shawn and his wife – Trisha! He runs his own business contracting out to the state and energy companies for auditing energy and installation for the elderly.
Shawn is a ranked nine-ball player in both Canada and the USA – winning his way to Las Vegas numerous times.
Troy and his partner – Andrea visited us this past summer.
Until four years ago – Troy built houses from the ground up – doing it all – then he joined Shawn and runs the installation side of the energy auditing business contracting out to the state in insulation for the elderly.

Years ago we made a trip to Washinton, D.C. with a group of friends from our church – Community Lutheran Church in Sterling, Va. to see Les Miserables on stage.
What a performance and good times with friends. MEMORIES!
Before Bode came along – and her mother was staying with us – a trip to Sweet Frog in Brambleton Town Center with FIVE granddaughters and an afternoon treat.
Now – Maddy is a senior in college and Ella a sophomore in college.
Sarah is a Sophomore in H.S. and the twins are twelve years old! MEMORIES!
A random thought – SMILE!

The six of us have been friends for about forty-plus years. Living as neighbors to Cindy and Buck and Jim and Dottie grew up in the same little town in NWPA called Eldred in the Alleghany mountains as I did.
Jim – Sherry and I all worked for Dal-Tile – (American Olean Tile) in Olean, N.Y.
And of course, being and working in WNY – we all were Buffalo Bills fans – and we watch them whenever we can by going to
Buffalo Bills sports bars in our areas.
Cindy and Buck live 30 miles from us and we get together often to play a round of golf – have dinner and just enjoy our friendships.
Papa – Dottie – Cindy – Sherry – Buck and Jim – Dottie and Jim live in Va. Beach and in the coming years will build on a piece of property in Northern North Carolina.
They will be about three-plus hours from us when they retire.
Sherry – Cindy – Dottie – Forty-plus years of being friends. When we all get together – it comes down to Gals vs. Guys in a golf scramble.
The last time we gave them two strokes – they missed a four-foot putt on the last hole for the WIN!
So we tied 37 to 37!
Sherry and Cindy – both into walking miles and miles – I try to keep up!
Thanks for reading Papa’s World – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog
