Papa’s World – Lions – Tigers and Bears OH MY! Spiders – Snakes and Gators OH YEAH!

Our new home and the front porch.

We knew when we moved to the South – just 8 miles to the border of S.C. in Ocean Isle Beach N.C.

That we would encounter some animals – reptiles that we had never had before!

The spiders – I just do not like – having had as a child some really scary sightings!

I later found out this was somewhat harmless – but it still gave me goose bumps!

This I think was a form of wolf spider – the second one I encountered – the first was inside the lanai!

Spiders as far as I am concerned belong outside!

The one inside was very large – and when I tried to sweep it away – the thing exploded and a hundred little spiders came out!

I managed to kill them all – but it was a Twilight Zone feeling!

I do not want those type of things inside!

If you look back at the picture of the front porch – and looking straight at it and raise your right arm and point – these next two pictures were taken less than 200 feet up the street and on the corner!

This gator I would say is about four feet long – maybe a little longer!

The man who took the picture said it continued up the hill to another pond!

There are two ponds near us – one about 10 houses down the street –

and one maybe a 1/3 mile behind our house in a undevolped site that they are working on.

We have seen a gator in both of them but never in the pond up the hill!

From where this picture is taken to the pond up the hill is like 200 or 300 yards!

Now – how it got to where this picture was taken – it had to come from behind our house-

either to the right or left!

Sherry looking through the trees to her left – that is our house.

This drainage ditch runs behind our house and turns left and follows the treeline.

When you get to the end of the drainage ditch and turn right across the lawns –

you come to the street where this picture was taken.

We saw tracks in this ditch – not sure just what they were – but they had small claws on the tips!

Last but not least is the rather large COPPERHEAD!

We have not seen any of these – but we have seen a four or five foot BLACK SNAKE!

Those are okay because they kill these bad boys.

This one was near where the Gator picture was taken.

Several neighbors have seen dead ones on the road after being run over.

There are also COTTONMOUTHS around although no one has seen them.

I am more leary of these as they are hard to spot even though I constantly am on the lookout for them.

Yes – we knew in moving to the South we would experience all of this!

But – we made our choice and are so happy we did – close to golfing and close to the beach as well

as close to all these critters! SPIDERS SNAKES and GATORS! OH YEAH!!!!

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – with family at the Durham Bulls Triple AAA baseball game!

What a nice baseball park in Durham N.C.

It was Casey’s birthday – we went boating and now to watch the baseball game!

It turned out the crowd size was announced at 8400 fans!

That is quite a crowd for a minor league game.

It had all the things you see in a minor league game with between innings entertainment!

They got the fans involved by having different contests – the scoreboard was fantastic and had another one in right field.

The man here was adjusting cameras for the scoreboard and we sat right on the third base line!

Radar from Mash – one of my favorite TV shows.

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – visiting Auntie ( Sherry’s sister) and going on a boat ride with the Jone’s family!

Kristie about to drive the boat up onto the trailer.

We went to Lake Harris – Sherry’s neice and husband Casey have a boat.

It turned out to be a warm day despite the morning temperature of 54 degrees!

The two daughters couldn’t wait to anchor the boat and swim!

Olivia and Maya about to go in – they played on the beach and swan back and forth.

To them the water was fine – to me it was cold! LOL

I am such a fair weather swimmer – must be warm!

We spent a good two and one half hours on the water – even having lunch on the boat!

Later that day – we all went into Durham to watch the triple AAA Durham Bulls baseball game.

Auntie – Casey – Kristie – Papa – Sherry – cruising the lake.

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – some random thoughts and pictures – “DAYS OF MY LIFE”!

Our granddaughter – number 13 – she deked this player out and went right past her!

She is now a Junior at the Unversiy of Lynchburg in Va. Starting the last two years – and only one loss this season – currently sole possession of first place in their conference.

Papa – Maddy Myers – Sherry

This young lady not only starts and plays most of the entire games – but is a ALL ACADEMIC –

Into hiking – sunrises – and her major is Enviromental Engineering.

And coming down the soccer pipe line – is the youngest and only boy – BODE!

Will soon turn eight and already golfs with his dad – is all boy – bikes – running –

always looks at trucks – barefooted while outside – cold weather and all.

Loves and adores his older cousin Ella who as a Freshmen at Randolph College –

starts at midfield and plays most of the whole games.

I believe Bode will be the same!

FAMILY
Beyond those protected trees is our backyard and our home!

This drainage ditch is at the end of the cul de sac –

and allows the runoff to make its way to a very large second pond in the development.

We have seen a gator in each pond!

And we found some unknown tracks in this ditch going back and forth.

I told Sherry not to get too close to the high grass as we also have snakes around here.

Just down the street – two houses – two pictures were taken in the road –

A small gator was on its way to a third pond up the road and a large copperhead was also there.

Not at the same time – but N.C, has them both where we live.

I have also seen a very large black snake – which are good as they kill the copperheads!

All part of living in the South near the marsh and beaches!

Cassidy and Marley on football game day!

At least three times a week – she either calls her MorMor or zooms!

Sherry is MorMor – Swedish for Mothers- Mother!

She is very close to her and is the one who does not want us to leave

or asks when we are coming again.

She is sweet – but also very determined and head strong.

Marley is the new puppy – a GoldenDoodle –

who judging by her legs and feet – is going to be very large!

She is loving – likes to run and pull her leash – Taylor – Cassidy’s sister –

is the one who handles her the best.

She nips and chases both Bode and Cassidy!

Our front porch in October – Low 80’s to high 70’s in the daytime

low 70’s at night – beautiful weather – slight warm breezes – why we moved here!

Front porch sitting early morning with my coffee on this glider!

Protected from the sun and rain when it blows the other way.

I told Sherry – we had to have a front porch and this is one of the models

along with a office room – that was available!

The office was her wish list!

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY – FAMILY MEETS THE FRIENDS! email: fitztdf@aol.com

Papa’s World – meet up in Berkeley Springs!

We had planned this for months –

A childhood friend – Bob and wife – PJ –

were going to travel through our area on their way back to N.H.

So – we arranged to meet here in Berkeley Springs , W.V.

fpr two nights and stay at the historic Country Inn.

Sherry Papa (Tom) PJ ( Pam) Bob

A year ago they had traveled with their RV and stayed a couple nights

at our home in Brambleton. Va.

Bob and I went to grade school and high school together

played football together and other sports.

He would stay overnight at my house and me at his house.

And – of course – many stories of beer on the hill sleeping out

with a couple of our other friends!

We have a lot of history together.

The historic Country Inn

We got together a few times at our five year reunions

And just nine months ago –

started the same health journey that Sherry and I are on!

And in that short time looking at this picture

I can tell it is working!

Another close by resort we visited and had dinner

They will go back to N.H. to their condo

having left their RV in Nashville at their sons home

and after Christmas – drive back and pick it up

and spend the next four or more months in Florida.

We also visited Cacapon State park and golf course

This course was lush in green and in really good shape

I wanted to just play it but we had no clubs with us!

So – we sat on the deck – watching players and drank a few beers!

Berkeley Springs
Deep in discussion!
Walking Cacapon
The girls social distancing from us so they say! At Lake Holiday!

We had a very good two days all be it way too short.

When good friends meet up

it always seems short.

Berkeley Springs – we had never stayed here but had toured it before

The weather got a bit chilly –

but we had fun.

60 some years later still friends

Papa’s World – “Who you goona call – GHOSTBUSTERS”! Fixing the island counter!

On our walk through – Sherry found the corner had broken off and they had glued it back on!

It had come as far as we could tell – from the vendor shop like that!

It had plastic wrap on it and she could feel the glue on the top.

You can see the crack line and then the amount they were cutting off.

The warranty said they had the right to fix it – either in place or they take it off and back to the shop!

If they took it off – we would be one week before they would come back!

But – there was the problem of dust and chips!

We did not want the house full of all the dust!

When they showed up – I talked to the crew and they assured us they could control the dust and chips.

They were suppose to take it off and do it off site.

All they needed was plastic which they put down – then they discovered they had no more plastic.

Wait a second Sherry says – I have king sized sheets!

“So who you goona call – GHOSTBUSTERS”

I got some bag clips – and they clipped the two sheets together – and the three of them went under the sheets – with a huge vacuum – and they began cutting and grinding!

It worked – king sized sheets – plastic down on the floor – hardly any dust or chips!
They had to cut both corners so they would match.
The crack has been cut off and grinded smooth and polished!
The opposite corner cut – grinded and polished to match!

If we were not happy -we could of made them switch out the counter top –

but all our counters match including the sinks in the bathrooms.

This was a quick fix – ten minutes on each corner!

The cracked corner is gone – we thought it looked great – and hardly any clean up!

So – we once again had great sevice on the repairs we have made a list of.

We avoided all the work of taking the counter top off and risking more damage.

So – “WHO YOU GONNA CALL – GHOSTBUSTERS”!

Papa’s World – relaxing and walking the beach – we have seemed to like one better than the other!

Although Ocean Isle Beach is a ten minute drive – we seem to be going to Sunset Beach more often!

This beach is a extra ten minute drive – 8 miles away.

The difference is one is commercial and the other residential.

One is not flat and the other is.

One is more calm than the other.

Both have piers – both have plenty of parking – at least we have had no problems.

The pier at Sunset Beach – a lot of people sit under it to get out of the sun.

And you can see how calm the water is here and the beach wide and flat at low tide.

You can wade out and only be waist high!

Ocean Isle Beach has bigger waves and the beach is up and down.

There is where the mini golf is – the community park with concerts.

Bars and grills and a community center on the beach with bathrooms.

Sunset beach is almost all beach houses and rentals – hardly any big buildings!

We do go to both – Ocean Isle Beach has a big Farmers market a block from the beach.

Sunset Beach has their market on the mainland side as well as their concerts are mainland.

I like the drive to Ocean Isle Beach better – easier to get to.

Ocean Isle has little shops – and easy to walk around.

Many side streets and channels with houses.

Sunset Beach has a marsh on the South end and is where the Kindred Spirit mailbox is.

With low tide – the beach is really wide.

PAPA’S WORLD – WALKING SUNSET BEACH , N.C.

Papa’s World – Friends – make awish and hang from a tree – Vareen gardens – walking – ICW!

GOOD-DAY EVERYONE!

As per our routine with new guests – we took them for a walk along the ICW and the marsh –

at Vareen Memorial Garden just outside Little River S.C.

Josh and Chann’e walking across the shells along the ICW

We were going to do one last beach day at Sunset Beach – but first – we wanted them to see this.

This is whefre you can watch the big gambling boat depart from Little River and go past here

and make it ways out to the Ocean beyond the international border line.

There – I think they drop anchor and everyone gambles!

And the little one got a chance to explore – there were tiny little black crabs everywhere!

She was a trooper in walking back there to pose for a picture!

Her mom and dad were right there.

They left two dogs home in care by sister – hope everything was okay! LOL

This also is the place you come to – find a shell with a hole in it – take a sharpie –

and write something on it – name – date – anything – and then a string you brought along –

you hang it from one of the numerous trees “AND MAKE A WISH”!

Steve and Elaine – our dear friends from back in WNY!

There are thousands of shells hanging everywhere.

Thirty years ago or maybe longer – we played volleyball in a 16 team league –

In Portville N.Y. and also weekend tournaments.

We were all on the same co-ed team –

and it was a tough league – if you were not watching – you could get a broken nose!

Josh was just a baby when we played – sitting in his stroller – watching us!

Vareen Garden and Sunset Beach – FRIENDS and thier child and wife and daughter.

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa World – Sunset and night time on Ocean Isle beach with company – ice cream!

Good day!

We decided to take our company to Ocean Isle Beach – play some mini golf –

walk to the ice cream store and then go out onto the beach at sunset!

Eating ice cream on the beach just before sunset!
As we walked out onto the beach – we passed this “WILL YOU MARRY ME” proposal!

The people had gathered waiting for the surprise – we did not see it – but it was beautiful.

Eating the ice cream – no wind – warm – the tide was in.
Our comapny left two dogs home!

It was a fun day – we had gone to Sunset beach in the early afternoon –

then to dinner in Calabash and after here to play mini golf and walk the beach with ice cream!

The sun sinking in the West – dusk near – they had walked to the pier – now it was time to depart!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – my site – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog fitztdf@aol.com

And now after sunset – the rising of the moon and the glow across the water!
PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – Provision Company – a place where there is a honor system on drinks – and it works!

Provision Company at Holden Beach – N.C.

After golf at Lockwood Folly golf course – we made our way to this bar and grill –

we had never eaten here and did not know what to expect ( it was really good)

We placed our order while standing in line – and there is a very large cooler right there.

You simple take out the beer or soft drink you select – there is a bottle opener on the side-

and then you walk away and wait on the deck until your party is called –

and then you are seated!

No one keeps track of the number of drinks you take out of there –

IT ALL IS A HONOR SYSTEM and there is a hole in the wall to deposit empty bottles!

We are seated on the right at a table – and the walls and ceilings are covered with car plates –

and dollar bills! Most have names on them – hundreds and hundreds of them – and the plates have dates. Some newer and some older!

After our name was called – we were seated at this table – if you need another drink – just go back to the cooler – or go to the bar inside and order – just give your name at the bar and when you go to pay the bill-

YOU Tell them what you had to DRINK! ALL ON THE HONOR SYSTEM!

Cindy and Buck – Steve and Sherry – Elaine behind the post!

The waitress seats everyone and another comes out with your orders and calls out a Name!

You just acknowledge and they serve you!

This was a first for me and THE HONOR SYSTEM works – even at the bar!

All good things must be done!
We finished up and were ready to pay – counted the drinks – and well – hey – HONOR SYSTEM WORKS!
A good day of golfing – friends relaxing and sharing a meal!

Papa’s World – The War at the Folly – the golfing scramble match – GALS vs. GUYS – FRIENDS!

On a beautiful day – Elaine getting in some practice putts!

This really is a vista view golf course – sitting on the marsh – between Oak Island and Holden Beach N.C.

Lined up and ready to go – TEE TIME is now! The Gals tee off first and we are there to cheer them on!
I will let them say who is who!

They hit it well off the tee – a 30 yard advantage –

which means we have to have a drive 200

yards or more down the middle –

a slice right was the best we could do –

but we were even with there drive – and once again – their second shot was close to the green – we had our work cut out for us!

There they are putting for birdie on par three!

If only we could putt!

Three putting is going to make this awful close!

They are out there – 175 yards – with the advantage – we have to drive it 275 to be even!

Thanks to Steve – it was not his drives so much – I was matching him –

it was his ability to hit his second shot – and we would putt for birdie

only we could not putt and were taking boggie!

They started fast and maintained the pace as we matched cards – but we did also!
Picking up ball and going up to where Cindy drove her ball – advantage – another 100 yards!

All we could do was try to stay even to where they hit their drives – the second and third shots saved us!

Then – all of a sudden – we started to two putt and me – of all people – sank two one putts!

GAME ON – we were coming after them!

We shot a 43 on the front nine and we could not putt – back nine we started to putt and had a 40.

We wasted that front nine – and we knew it would be close – and it was!

They ended up with a 85 and we beat them by two strokes!

They are just so good that they need no strokes!
so at the end I asked them about the putts and what holes they used them on?

Remember in the previous bog I said they could have two extra putts each nine!

WHAT PUTTS Elaine and Sherry said?

Did not you hear me at the rules?

You got two extra putts for each nine holes!

Well – they remembered Cindy saying something about PUTTS they said!

Cindy added later – we would of beaten you if we had taken those putts!

Yes – you might have – so next time you only get two putts!

But then you have to remember to use them! LOL

Next blog – after golf scramble – dinner at Provision – Holden Beach – where they have a honor system on DRINKS – and it works!

Papa’s World – A gathering of friends – golf challenge – Gals vs – guys – rules laid out!

Gray clouds – bag drop off – LOCKWOOD FOLLY GOLF COURSE!

Elaine and Steve – Cindy and Buck and Sherry and I – all met here at the golf course!

It would be a friends scramble – Gals vs. Guys – and of course the rules have to be laid out!

It is always interesting to say the least – NO STROKES I REPEAT!

They are just so good that it is tough to just tie them!

But Cindy is always after more strokes! LOL

RULES OF PLAY:

  1. They play the ladies tee box – anywhere from 30 to 110 yards advantage!
  2. ( they all hit it 150 to 175 yards! Add on the advantage and you can see how far we have to hit)
  3. Steve and I hit from the seniors – he is I think 63 or 64 – I am 72.
  4. They really contested that because he can hit it long – but it also goes way left or right!
  5. We would have to use one drive front nine and back nine from each of us!
  6. That nulifies his long drives – and we pretty much were even in what drive we took.
  7. Par threes took out any long drive he might of had for four holes.
  8. Buck – who has a handicap – hits from the lady tees!
  9. The Gals will get two extra putts on the front nine and the back nine! ( keep this in mind)
We expected them to be tough to beat – and we were right!

After much back and forth with them trying to get more than what was fair – we were ready to start!

It was going to be a great day – the GALS vs. The GUYS at LOCKWOOD FOLLY GOLF COURSE!

Situated between Oak Island and Holden beach N.C. – on the marsh land – a beautiful course!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – my site: livinglifedoingitmyway.blog fitztdf@fitztdf

Next blog – the match begins – WAR ON THE FOLLY!

PS. Go back and look at the rules – remember the four EXTRA PUTTS!

Papa’s World – Shopping – stop for drinks – at Patio’s by the water – and then dinner.

A beautiful morning sunrise – our friends car in driveway – and later a shopping trip to Calabash.

We decided this day would be shopping – a unique store in Calabash called Calahans.

This has been a store of destination for decades and decades.

“L” shaped and 100 feet long or more on each side!

There are thousands and thousands of items – beach – lawn – apparal and holidays – all of them!

Steve in the old English telephone booth outside

It was fun – but I am a people watcher – not a shoper – I know what I want – and I am in and out!

But – Elaine and Steve had fun – I got to visit with a guy sitting on a bench –

and Sherry got to look some more at what she has looked at at least six times! LOL

And then it was on our way to Little River, S.C. to the waterfront.

I told them this is where the locals go and hang out.

There is even a biker bar there!

But our favorite is called “PATIO’S” and sits on the water – has live music –

and good food!

We are on the lower deck behind the other two patio decks – and also behind the band.

We have a VIEW of the water and boat traffic – plus this is where they dock the two large Casino boats.

This is the waterway the big boat came down on – and turned completly around and docked right in front of us!

It was incredible to watch as it from end to end – you would swear it could touch both shores!

The Casino boat after turning around right there and docking – and passengers getting off.

It loads up here – ticket office right there and there were hundreds of people on it!

It goes out to the ocean to the international border line – and then they anchor and they gamble!

JUST KIDDING!!!!!!

We decided to stay – order dinner – I HAD A SALAD –

and listen to the band play ’70’s and ’80’s music!

The food was good and so was the music!

Papa’s World – 1.4 miles South from the last house on Sunset Beach – sits a mailbox – KINDRED SPIRIT – now going onto the middle of 5 decades

A large piece of driftwood sits on a sand dune just above the mailbox – dedicated to the man who put it there some four and one half decades ago – along with another hippie female friend.

We had read about this famous mailbox – several books have been written about it –

It is a 1.4 mile walk South on what is called Bird Island – an nature preserve –

located on the Southern half of Sunset Beach in N.C.

I am not sure if this is the other half – the lady friend of Frank – but this is one of two benches next to the mailbox – a place to sit and think and write your thoughts in the journal provided in the mailbox.
The large piece of driftwood with the plaque – overlooking the nature preserve – there are trails back in there to explore – walk in silence with only the breeze – the calling of the birds and the surf .
Papa – at the entrance to the benches and mailbox – waiting as another guest takes her picture.
I can not even imagine how all those years ago – they managed to carry everything here to install the mailbox!
The KINDRED SPIRIT mailbox and benches – this is maintained by persons unknown – has been all these years – and replaced many times as the old ones have slowly eroded away.
It is a lonely spot – yet so many people walk here everyday and leave there writings and thoughts –

throught the years – those journals have been preserved and are considered historical writings –

and are preserved in a museum! I do not know which one but I plan to find out.

The view behind the mailbox at the top of the sand dune – the nature preserve and in the distance –

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH – when on Sunset Beach – go South and I think at 40th. street – the end –

just find a place to park alongside the road – be sure your tires are completly off the pavement – and if a bike path off that also.

Then find the beach access and come to a sign at the beach – it tells you the distance to the mailbox and further down the beach – the jetty and the mouth of the river – where the Casino boats from Little River enter the ocean – going out to the International border line to gamble.

PAPA’S WORLD livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – Bird Island Nature walk with Sherry – Steve and Elaine – five miles walking the surf and beach!

At the Southern end of Sunset Beach is a nature sanctuary called Bird Island

Full of marsh – water and nature trails through the dunes and along the river – all sand and sea grass!

Miles of deserted beach – calm waves and warm water – 82 degrees on the shoreline of N.C.

My thoughts to this is what this must of looked like hundreds and thousands of years before the mass immigration

from Europe and the rest of the World.

No one here – just beautiful nature sand and surf.

Our friends of many years from back in NYS visited for a week.

Elaine and Steve paid us a visit – and we went to Sunset beach – early morning before it got too hot!

When you walk South – Sunset Beach ends and Bird Island begins – no houses and only walkers

like yourself – walking the surf – riding bikes or jogging.

Almost to the bay and jetty – walking trail through the dunes.

This walk round trip is about five miles – so bring water to drink – walk in the surf to cool off –

and just enjoy yourself with the wonder of solitude – the only sound is that of the surf and birds!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World MY SITE: Papa’s World – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

My next blog is why we walked all the way South!

Visiting the KINDRED SPIRIT MAIL BOX on BIRD ISLAND – SUNSET BEACH – N.C.

SHERRY CERTIFIED HEALTH COACH SSC JUICE PLUS COMPANY

WWW.SF.JUICEPLUS.COM SSHERRYLYNN49@fitztdf

Papa’s World – we took a walk to Bird Island – and from there we could see Cherry Point and North Myrtle Beach

This I imagine is what the beach looked like hundreds of years ago!

It – the walk – is not a short walk – but rather more like five miles round trip.

So – be prepared – bring water – put your sunscreen on and walk the surf to cool yourself down!

We are on what is called Bird Island – but actually is the far point South on Sunset Beach , N.C.

Sunset beach is a top ten beach in the USA!

The beaches here are very wide even before low tide!

As you can see in the first picture.

They are flatter than Ocean Isle Beach and calmer.

September is a good time to BEACH IT in N.C.

Schools are is session – summer vactions are all but wrapped up and the beaches –

well – they are no where near as crowded!

Now – I am also surprised by the number of people still here and with children!

On your way to the jetty at the end of Bird Island – you pass the KINDRED SPIRIT mailbox – that is me looking at a woman who was ahead of me – more on the mailbox in my next blog!

I think it seems long as it is a straight line to the end and never seems to get there!

But we walk three plus miles all the time – although not in a straight line.

Now you are at the end of SUNSET BEACH – BIRD ISLAND!

You look across the bay – this is where the big cruise CASINO gambling ships enter the open water of the ocean.

Here is Little River S.C and Cherry point next to Cherry Grove S.C.

In the distance – those tall white buildings – is the shoreline of NORTH MYRTLE BEACH!

My advice for those seeking a beach week and vacation -for go Myrtle Beach –

and plan your vacation in either NMB or Cherry Grove!

More residental – lower prices and wider beaches!

Plus you can walk to almost everything and if you drive – less traffic and five minutes gets you to main street!

All by itself – 1.4 miles down the beach – the lonesome KINDRED SPIRIT MAILBOX!

Papa’s World – Sunset Beach, N.C. a day on the beach with friends – sun – sand and surf!

Our friends – Steve and Elaine Starks – true friends who appreciate you for who you are!

We have known them since our volleyball days back in the mid to late “80’s.

We have vactioned with them and their children – shared meals and presents.

Moments in time of destress and family passings.

TRUE FRIENDS all these years and now they have come to vaction in our new home.

Coming in from cooling off in the ocean.

We planed a beach week – golfing day – eating out for seafood and now – minature golf –

as their son and daughter in law along with grandbaby – join us.

It has been a wonderful time rehashing old stories and listening to new news fom back home.

They are from Portville N.Y. as were we before moving to NVA and now N.C.

They visited us in NVA and now here.

We took a little five and half mile walk on the beach with them!

One of the things they agreed to do with us was walk to what is known as the KINDRED SPIRIT mailbox

that is installed about 1.4 miles down the Sunset Beach and known as BIRD ISLAND!

It was installed there going on five decades ago – by a peace loving hippie couple.

In that mailbox are journals to wrtie your thoughts.

These journals are considered historic essays – thoughts and from all types of people and currently are in a musuem.

SUNSET BEACH is listed as a top ten beach in the country!

It is very wide when the tide is out – and rather calm – hard packed sand for easy walking!

The water was a balmy 82 degrees in mid September!

Now – the tourist season is mostly over – kids back in school – college kids gone so business scale back.

But – the beach remains the same – we almost have it all to ourselves!

Papa’s World – Walking with friends – Sunset on Sunset Beach – water was 82 degrees!

The pier and setting sun on Sunset Beach – N.C.

We decided to go to the beach early evening – late afternoon – to walk the surf!

Our friends – Steve and Elaine – came to visit for the week.

They are from back in WNY where we lived before moving to NVA!

The very first thing we saw was a young man making this sculpture

And it looked just like a cement mound with seashells in it!

I asked him why and he said the next day was his three year anniversary and he made it for his wife!

He said he had never done anything like this before and in the middle was a heart made out of black shells!

He had placed it just above the high tide line – hoping it would stay!

He did a really good job and I wondered who had collected all the shells for him?

We continued on our way – and the water temp was a warm 82 degrees!

Sherry – Steve and Elaine

We go back to the mid to late ’80’s when we lived in Portville NY.

We were there when they had the first of two children – a boy and later a girl. Josh and Brianne.

We first met them when we were rounding out our co-ed volleyball team – 16 teams in the league.

And it was not your average back yard volleyball.

If not being very watchful – you could get a broken nose!

It was competive and several teams played in weekend tournaments!

They came to visit for the week and their son and wife will also come down from Lynchburg , Va.

We are playing golf Friday afternoon with the McBrides as they know them from our neighbors in Portville!

Papa’s World – random pictures of days in our life – HOME – FAMILY and FRIENDS!

Cassidy – Taylor – puppy Marley – Sherry – CERTIFIED HEALTH COACH for over 15 years.

The smallest granddaughters – twins – age 11 – and the puppy – MARLEY – age six months!

Sherry who for going on 16 years – has run her own on line business dealing in Health & Nutrition.

In doing this she took multiple courses and became certified – from two different doctors.

She is very successful and it allowed her to retire early eight years ago.

INFO: http://www.sf.juiceplus.com Email for contact: ssherrylynn49@aol.com

A view from inside to outside from our newly built house – our covered and closed in Lanai. Our Tower Garden – in less than five weeks – lush green with tomatoes and cucumbers coming – fresh lettuce’s and herbs – no pesticides and all grown here in dirtless – weedless enviorment with nutrients and natural minerals from the earth developed into a tonic. Just add water and tonic.

We sold our home in Va. when the stock market took a huge dive.

Our 401K went down – but two things also happened –

Her on line business stayed the same – providing income along with SS and the 401K and pensions –

and the home values shot up in our neighborhood – it was time to SELL!

In just 19 days we sold – completly moved out and had enough to finace this new house in N.C.

We came South after almost three months living with our daughters and their families.

For nine months in searching – and then committing – we built our new home.

Now – I must say – we took a big hit on the 401K ( it since has almost come all the way back)

But – our partime on-line business continued – and we just moved it from Va. to SC to NC –

never missing a beat – and in the process – when we sold the house – we also sold 98% of the furnishings!

WE WERE STARTING A NEW LIFE ALL TOGETHER IN THE SOUTH!

eWe left behind families – but these three – instead of a camp – both parents work – thir parents bought them plane tickets – Sherry flew up and came back with them for a week with us!

We have three older granddaughters – two now in college and both starting on their college soccer teams.

The third is a freshman in HS –

we want to get them and their parents down for a visit –

but schedules have to be cordinated.

Our daughter of this family – also is a CERTIFIED HEALTH COACH

and has surpassed her mother in the same on line business from her home .

Achieving QMD in the company – working together with her mother.

Next month – 8 or 9 team members will travel to the Smokey Mountains to a cabin in the mountains –

for a retreat to once again reconnect –

which has the pandemic keeping them apart.

Although everything is on line -they miss being social and miss seing one another.

Keeping in touch – zoom meetings – calls – life goes on – friends – partners – phones – voxes – business as usual.
We do have friends here in N.C. and have for the last 35 years.

We have been visiting them for 25 years after they left our neighborhood in NYS!

We came to really like the area and made it a place to look –

but then along came NMB –

and then Ocean Isle Beach –

so we choose to settle there.

We still are 40 to 45 minutes away – but they play golf in our area –

and have for years and years.

We try to see and play golf once a week –

and we all are fans of the Bills ( we also like Washington)

There are many theaters and concerts we attend together –

FRIENDS –

A new life with old friends – and making other friends along the way.

There is a rainbow for us after relocating!

While it is hard to say goodbyes –

it also is so rewarding to hug and say hello when they visit!

We have been fortunate – a passive income –

a family that understands –

and friends for years.

Moving South has been a new adventure –

and thank you for reading this.

Papa’s World is a continuation of my life seen through my own eyes daily.

My motto remains the same –

PAPA’S WORLD – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – we took a little trip across the street to Ocean Ridge – Sherry and I golfed at Lions Paw – 9 holes

This is our entrance to where we live – but right at the end of the road you see here – your turn left – go one mile –

And turn right into OCEAN RIDGE PLANTATION –

and there are FOUR GOLF COURSES in there –

and they are called the BIG CATS !

LIONS PAW – TIGERS EYE – PANTHERS RUN – LEOPARDS CHASE!

We have played all 18 of TIGER EYES – and LEOPARDS CHASE –

and decided after not playing in over a month –

to play nine on LIONS PAW!

And there are gators here also!
I am always on the look out for snakes and gators!

I actually golfed the best I have doine in a long time!

I was on five greens in regulation –

but – the greens were not great –

very slow – sand kicked up when putting!

I never missed a drive or my second shots.

I had one nine iron I caught too much turf –

but other than that I was pleased except I three putted seven greens!

I found the water on the par three and had a six!

I just did not score!

Spotting Sherry when she drives. This is the course the tonado hit back in May!
COFFEE – YES!!!!!

We decided to play just nine as we had been over a month –

being busy with a trip back to NVA to watch grandkids!

And it was the right one –

we used our new drivers license to get the local rates –

you have to have ID!

Afterwards – we crossed the causeway and had dinner at the Ocean Isle Fish Company on the top deck!

PAPA’S WORLD – a great finish to a good day!

Papa’s World – early morning – cloudy – gray clouds – is a storm brewing? Yes – it rained all day!

Looking East – toward the sunrise – Ocean Isle Beach – four miles away.

It looked and felt like rain – warm – slight breeze –

there is one house left to build here on this street before the turn –

and they have already framed and covered it in with plywood and starting the shingles for the roof.

There are four maybe five more that are very close to closing

and then the construction continues beyond what you see –

and winds around to a dead end that we can see in a distance from our back yard.

You can just see through the woods where they are building.

Hoping that all the construction on the street back there is done by the end of the year!

Then it moves to the opposite – the West end where they are putting in infrastructure!

The stormclouds on the West side and at the end of the street is where the infrastrucure is now going in!
Looking SW and beyond those trees – far back is the new infrastructure – we can not see it!

That tree line is protected – and can not be cut back or down!

Which is one of the reasons we choose this location!

Full of wildlife – natures sounds and yes – I believe there are snakes in there!

So – I am always looking before I step = better to be safe – but this is also full of birds –

so we have now put up a bird feeder!

We love the natural setting!

The Sun made a effort to peak through – but the clouds kept coming!

So – it went – hour by hour and then a gentle rain started – getting a little bit heavier – and lasted all day!

A good soaking rain – no lightening or thunder!

Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach – N.C.

Papa’s World – swimming – grandkids at LAKE HOLIDAY Cross Junction Va. with Mike and Deb.

nSherry – Sarah – Papa – Cassidy – Taylor – Debby – Bode and Mike.

On our last day home – we packed the little ones into the car and drove the hour and ten minutes to Cross Junction

to Lake Holiday – where a gated community with guard house sits –

a 227 acre lake in the valley of the blue ridge mountains in the Shenadoah’s.

Mike and Debby have lived here for 16 years –

raising their three girls – in the country.

There are three beaches on this lake – the main one with the marina and club house –

beach three across from that

and this is called beach two –

has a camping ground – volleyball court – playground – boat docks and storage for canoes and kayaks.

A partial sand beach with pea gravel as the sand keeps washing into the lake.

So they put in a small retaining wall and backfilled with pea gravel.

It is shallow close to the edge but within 25 feet – is over your head.

The brown area in the water is the shallow part – the dark blue is the deep water.

There was no one there – the campground was empty –

the kids had it all to themselves – and later had a tube ride

from a friend of Mike and Debby who stopped by when they saw us at the docks for boats.

The little ones love it here and want to go and see their cousins –

Maddy – Ella and Sarah.

The first two are now in college and Sarah is first year in H.S.

Mike and Debby host family for overnight all the time –

a campfire pit in the back yard –

lights strung amongst the trees.

It is quiet here and the lake about one mile away.

Bode Taylor Cassidy

The shallow part as Taylor is standing –

but it drops off quickly and way over your head!

There is a dam here and one time before the lake – all valleys with streams running through them.

Sarah – Cassidy – Taylor and Bode just relaxing in the Sun –

the water – well I thought it to be cold –

but they said once you were in – you got use to it –

but as soon as they came out – they grabbed towels

and wrapped up in them and sat in the warm Sun!

Papa’s World – trip to waterpark with granddaughters and grandson – Ida Lee waterpark – Leesburg Va.

Sherry with Bode – Taylor – Sarah and in front Cassidy – grandkids!

As promised for the twins birthday celebration – their cousin Sarah would stay overnight and we all went to

the waterpark the next day. Ida Lee Waterpark and since it was Labor day weekend –

hardly anyone was there!

This sits just outside Leesburg Va.

Bode was with them but had to use the restroom!

The only way for him to join up with them again was to get a tube and get in as they passed him on the lazy river.

Sarah Cassidy and Taylor

The water was a little cold but okay after they were in. The temps had cooled down to mid ’70’s!

All in all – we were there three or four hours!

The park itself is not that big and lots of lifeguards – making it easy for us to sit one place and watch them!

Since it was a holiday weekend – most people had gone out of town – it was not crowded at all!

They had a blast on the slides and pools and lazy river – a obstacle course and a place to snack.

Sarah about to go under the water fall! I would bring them back again and we had shade to sit in!

LAZY RIVER – IDA LEE WATERPARK , LEESBURG VA.

Papa’s World – Let food be thy medicine – let Medicine be thy food!

I did not always eat that way!

In fact I was a fast food junkie!

And at age 64 – it caught up with me!

I had a WIDOW MAKERS HEAR ATTACK!

Four arteries –

1 was 100% blocked

1 was 90 % blocked

1 was 70 % blocked

1 was 60 % blocked!

I should of died!

Had I known what I know now –

But my wife did and she changed our lifestyle 15 years ago

and that saved my life!

Photo by Buenosia Carol on Pexels.com

We started to eat healthy – went away from the fast – junk food

and started taking a supplement –

a mixture of fruits – vegetables – berries –

juiced – dried and the nutrients put into capsules.

This was called Juice Plus.

Sherry with grand kids & daughters

Along the way – we managed to get all the grand kids

on the supplement for free!

Minus Maddy who is in college and we still provide her with the shakes and capsules

There is no doubt in my mind that I would of passed away

had I not changed my lifestyle and taken this supplement.

On this journey of health –

Sherry has become a certified health instructor

through courses with Doctor Bill Sears and Doctor Pam Popper.

All of our family is involved

So – that is my story and I am now seven years past that heart attack

last year I had a nuclear test and everything is as it was after the by passes.

My blood work is amazing

and I now see my heart doctor once a yaer.

I have managed in the last 12 months to shed some 20 pounds.

I am now what I weighed when I graduated in 1967!

Papa’s World – Twins birthday – MARLEY puppy – and cousin Sarah comes to visit!

The twins turned eleven years old – Cassidy and Taylor birthday!

Yes – they are twins – and they had to be taken out early because Taylor was taking all the nourishment!

Today – Cassidy is normal for her age but Taylor is going to be real tall – like her MORMOR –

Swedish for MOTHERSMOTHER!

Sherry is 5′ 9″ and she will be taller than that.

Bode – who turns eight is also going to be tall and here is cousin Sarah – who at soon to be 15 – is gaining on Sherry!

We went back to NVA to watch the little ones and the puppy Marley – and Sarah came for overnight!

MARLEY at six months old – a puppy who likes to play keep away and run and run.

She is adorable and is a Goldendoodle – judging by her feet – she will be very large! She is so friendly and loving.

But – you must make sure to keep things out of reach as she tends to chew – thus she stood up and grabbed the hat of our son in law and that became history! LOL

And at night – after all day with MARLEY and the little ones – sleep was welcomed! LOL
A very proud grandmother – Sherry with all four – missing the two oldest who are in college – best birthday among

the cousins celebrating by a road trip with Debby and Sarah into Washington D.C. to the city ZOO!

ME – I GOT TO HANG WITH MARLEY!

PAPA’S WORLD livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – we had AIRLINE vouchers to use – flying back home to NVA – parents gone – watching grandkids

CASSIDY BODE TAYLOR 3 little grandkids!

Before the Pandemic hit – we were flying to Phoenix for a health conference – then it was canceled –

So we have had all this money tied up in two vouchers!

Fast forward – “Why not use part of them for flying back to NVA – instead of driving – to watch over the kids!”

Their parents had a out of state ( Vermont) family wedding – no children – adults only – and we said yes –

we would come up for the long weekend – and stay with them and the new puppy – MARLEY!

MASKS ARE REQUIRED IN THE AIRPORT AND PLANE THE ENTIRE TIME – I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH THAT!

We had to arrive early at North Myrtle Beach International airport – and there in was a problem.

The week before we had taken our drivers test ( stressed out for two months) for N.C.

Hint for drivers test – study all the signs and know what they are for even if they are blank!

There are special shapes!

And we passed – new drivers license ( paper form) and real ID to come in the mail.

We put our VA. license away ( mistake number one) and our new paper ID in our wallets.

(mistake number two) Keep both of them until in the mail you get the hard real ID!

Even though we had TSA clearence – we had to go thru as if we were fakes and maybe

causing a problem – which meant everything had to be searched( I had no problem with this)

and mistake number three ( take your passports when flying)!

All of that could of been avoided – it was our own fault – but we made it only to worry ( STRESS)

the return from NVA through a much bigger ( DULLES) and more stringent examination due to the fact

that the agent was training a new agent! ( NO PROBLEM WITH THAT!)

And yes it was stressful but we made it!

Waiting at MYRTLE BEACH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FOR OUR FLIGHT ON AMERICAN AIRLINES!
It all worked out and now I can laugh at it!

Just a senior moment – we knew better but hey – we are old and sometimes not as organized as we used to be!

But – we arrived – our daughter picked us up and we were on our way to their house – the grandkids and MARLEY!

MARLEY and CASSIDY – the new puppy and one of the twin girls – fraternal twins!

This was the beginning of a six day stay – two days with the parents – leaving and coming back –

and four days with grandkids and the puppy – a GOLDENDOODLE – who is going to be very large!

But – in our senior wisdom – we had plans to keep them busy and with these three –

it is when you get done “PAPA – when are we going to do the next thing”?

They are busy all the time except when on IPAD’S or BODE asking for my phone!

Then it is complete silence – except MARLEY who as a puppy gets into everything!

All has to be put up out of reach but she is really good – goes to the door when she wants out –

and plays run and hide and stay out of reach when you try to catch her to bring her in –

towel off her extra big feet – I found holding dog food and saying treat she would come! LOL

Taylor – who is on her way to being six feet tall – 11 years old – Bode – who never stays still except on my phone – Marley who is only six months old and is going to be huge – and Cassidy – who although shorter – is right on spot being a 11 year old!

Taylor is the quiet one of the three – always doing what told – and is the one who tkaes full care of Marley.

She is a sweetheart – sometimes you do not even know she is around!

BODE is in motion all the time – all boy and in the dead of winter – no socks and no shoes and outside!

Soccer – riding bike – golfing with his father – smart and outgoing – but can be a handful!

Cassidy – sweet – does crafts all the time – loves her MORMOR( Sherry) and calls and zooms all the time.

She takes after Sherry and is by her side all the time.

It broke my heart when it was time to leave – she came out for the third time to say goodbye –

hugs and asking when we will see her again –

then as we are pulling out to go to the airport – inside the garage standing on the step –

peeking out to us so she could see us leave – so lonely – and not wanting us to leave!

She misses us more than the other two!

Next blog will be contiued on our visit and the grandkids – WHEW – keeping them busy is a fulltime job!

Papa’s World – we are all settled in – now it is time – back to growing our own veggies – THE TOWER GARDEN!

When we sold our house back in June 2020 – we had three of these – two regular units and one indoors one.

They looked just like these – The TOWER GARDENS – a self contained unit to grow veggies with out dirt!

And they grow with just water and tonic – two different tonics made up of minerals and nutrients of the Earth.

A pump is in the tank and a timer is set to pump up the wtaer at 15 minute intervals ( you can adjust the times)

You start from just seeds which are provoded and put them in spun lava rock

place them in the pods and start the timer!

That is it! And then – it produces veggies almost 1/3 the time faster than normal growing!

After 13 months – we are moved in and this is ours set up on the open patio.

What you see here took less than three weeks starting from seeds!

This picture shows the seeds sprouting in the spun lava which you place into the pods for the Tower Garden!
These are the spun lava rock with seeds already inserted into the pods on the Tower Garden – where water and tonic minerals from the bottom tank are pumped up the middle of the tower and drip down the the tower over where the roots from the seeds have formed.

oYou water them at different intervals – example water on for 15 minutes – off for 30 or 45 minutes!

All from a timer you can adjust as you grow!

The Towr Garden we have is a indoor – outdoor one that when outdoors – you just take the grow lights off!

Indoors you put them back on and they are controlled by a timer – everything you need from seeds to tonic –

to grow lights – pump – timer – lava rock and instructions for one growing season is there when you order it.

Seed sprouting out of the spun lava rock after placed in the pod and watert and tonic constantly going 24 / 7!

It costs just pennies a day to run – you just make sure water is in the tank and by instructions when to add more tonic minerals. EASY as that – almost effortless and no WEEDING!

They are like children – they become a labor of love!

Comparrisons – this is THREE WEEKS from seed to plants thriving!
We went away for one week – and this was left unattended – and you can see the growth in week FOUR!
At three weeks – from seeds to this and we are eating off it!
Four weeks and after we had been away – the timer and water pump continued – the sun did the rest!

The only thing I did was to fill the tank with water – as the plants grow and start to bear veggies – they as a normal

need water – it becomes necessary every thee days to put water in.

There is a float in the tank that tells you when to add water!

Every 2 to 4 tank fulls if refilling – you put in one cup of nutrients of the two tonic minerals!

Between weeks THREE and FOUR – we are eating lettuce for salads every night for dinner!
We know there are no pesticides and is all natural – you need at least four hours of sun light –
and just sit back and watch it grow. You can grow anything that is not grown on a tree or has to be in the ground.

Melons – cucumbers – radish – celery – peppers – tomatoe’s – everything!
You do not have to have a GREEN THUMB – just keep the water in the tank and every week or two –
reach into the tank and pull roots out so they do not shut the pump down,
and that is really easy to to do and they smell so good!

THE TOWER GARDEN – by THE JUICE PLUS COMPANY

Papa’s World – Granddaughters – Maddy and Ella – College Soccer – same conference – different schools – game on!

Maddy – our oldest granddaughter – entering her third year at the UNIVERSITY of LYNCHBURG!

She has like it seems played soccer all her life – since she was old enough to put on a uniform.

Always the smallest on the field – at first the ball was almost bigger than her!

But – in her Junior HS year she had a grwoth spurt – and ended up being 5′ 6″ tall and a star soccer player.

She went to Lynchburg and as a Freshman played in 13 games and starting last year as a starter.

This past weekend – in their first game – lost a hard fought game to a team from Florida – a very good non division team – 2 to 1 – but the write up was about how she played and the skill set she brings – almost several times bringing them back for a tie.

She has excelled and is one of the best players on a very young team – starting 7 Freshman.

The Freshman are all big – 5′ 11″ to 6.0 ‘ tall and all really good.

They won their second game 6 to 0 over a team from NY city.

Ella Myers – # 10 – a 5′ 9″ freshman at Randolph College in Lynchburg Va. just ten minutes away from her sister Maddy.

She was recruited by two schools and in a preseason interview – her now coach said –

“Ella Myers – will play and get a lot of minutes at midfielder”!

She has started all the preseason games – and both regular season games – and played almost the entire games!

They have won both games and in the second game – a 0 to 0 tie going into minute 64 of the second half –

she scored her first college goal in what would be the winning goal – ( one was added later) as a Freshmen.

She had a very hard journey to get here –

breaking a bone in each foot at different years –

losing a couple years of playing plus not having a couch that believed in her playing!

Yet – TWO COLLEGE coaches saw the potential and recruited her.

Her HS team came within one goal of a state championship!

She just missed by inches of scoring that goal!

HER MOTTO I have given her –

” I AM A SKILLED PLAYER – and NOW HERE I AM”!

Both of them overcame the odds – from being the smallest with huge skills – from overcoming broken bones and a coach who did not believe in her – to both of them starting on their respective COLLEGE SOCCER TEAMS!

And YES – they will play against each other come Ocrober 6th.

and we plan on being there to see it!

Cheering both of them on – a win for us no matter the outcome.

Sarah who is fifthteen – could of been just as good had she continued –
Maddy – oldest and still the smallest of the three girls and Ella –
proud of all three –
you go Sarah and reach for the stars in your own dreams!

It will be a grand time watching this match and who knows – if the teams continue winning meeting in a playoff.

SISTERS
So proud of you Ella for showing them what they had and how they overlooked you!

” I AM A SKILLED PLAYER – AND NOW HERE I AM”

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – random thoughts and pictures living our life to the plus!

My first thing every morning – fix my cup of coffee!

And then it is onto writing my blog – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog !

All this is early – and depends on when I wake up – mostly bathroom! LOL

Once up – it is hard for me to fall back asleep – so I just get up and fix that cup of coffee!

Pushing the garbage can outside before 6 am. which is the time they want it out there!

Sunrises here are really something – the ocean is but four miles away!

This street for construction is almost done – two houses left – right across the street –

and one down two lots from us.

All the rest are down where the corner is and then around the cul-de-sac.

Passwords – I write them down!

Everything today needs a password – and I just can not remember them all – so I have a special place

I keep them safe – where I am the one who knows where to look ( Sherry knows also) !

The entrance to our development – Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach – mainland side.

It is a quiet place except for the on going construction – which by years end should be done where we live.

The new phase is now having the infrastrucure put in and is away from us.

Ocean Isle Beach and our grandaughters – only four miles away.

We choose this area because we are on the mainland side – then the ICW – then the houses and business

of Ocean Isle Beach and the beach itself!

We also are close to Sunset beach – another three miles!

We are near the border of S.C and a lot of golf courses!

All the towns and communities have free open air concerts – running from mid May to mid September!
And of course Calabash – the Seafood capital of the world! Only seven miles away – a place we take company!

This area is full of places to visit and dine – all with views!

And another major reason we moved here – golfing – we try to golf once a week – and we have 20 plus courses right where we live to choose from!

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY FAMILY MEETS FRIENDS!

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 my World was young !

In a small town – far away –

40 years ago – I played softball !

GOOD MORNING

I graduated and went to work right away for Olean Tile Company –

That was in June of 1967 .

I did not have the chance to go on to college.

Those were tough times –

I had spent 51 days in the hospital my senior year – car accident.

I know this all so well

But I recovered – and a little later –

started playing sports again.

First – it was for a radio station – basketball –

playing alumni of schools – teachers – varsity clubs.

Traveling WNY & WPA.

Then – it was softball –

Around that time

And then it was on to softball –

in a league – in NWPA .

There were a bunch of us –

and I was nearing 30 –

which made me the oldest.

By about three years and more.

Later – in my mid 30’s – I moved onto volleyball –

In a 16 team league and tournaments.

But – this past weekend –

to my surprise –

at a birthday party in Va. Beach –

It once again came all together –

Tom – Paul – Leo – Les – Jim

REUNITED after almost 40 years !

Five old friends – five old softball players

From our team in a small town far – far away !

It was fun recalling of years gone by

The memories – all so long ago –

All are retired now except Jim –

And in a few years – he will be also.

70 years of age now –

and walking is now my sport along with a little golf.

Jim and Les

Talking – remembering –

Paul & Jim

Still close friends after all those years.

Back when this was true

It was a surprise – we got the picture –

All from a small town in NWPA

Meeting once again in Va.Beach –

It happens

Thank you for reading Papa’s World –

where the unexpected happens –

Old friends meet once again

And a story is told.

Papa’s World – Mother and Daughters – changing families – for better health

Debby and Sherry

It all started 15 years ago

Sherry found a better way to get nutrition & nutrients

from fruits and vegetables with research to back it up!

Three generations

They started by naming their mother – daughters team

“TEAM GENERATIONS”

From GIGI ( grandmother )

– to Sherry ( mother) to daughters

Tammy and Debby and their children.

Four generations – all on the road to better health.

Ella and Sarah
Bode Taylor Cassidy

The fourth generation – and when they have children – the fifth generation

All because Sherry said “YES” at NBC for your health

at the Washington DC convention center!

The TEAM GENERATIONS TEAM

It continues to grow – families seeking nutrition

better health

feeling great and less doctor visits

More energy

It has spread across the country

and now they communicate with ZOOM calls

and those that live near each other – gather in exercising

There are monthly exercise programs – group fastings

Challenges – and social group gatherings.

Mother and daughter bonding

It has become a FAMILY trip to health.

The oldest in college – practicing health

sending her care packages of healthy foods!

Trips to conferences on the East Coast and West Coast and Middle America twice a year
Team generations continues to grow one family at a time
Leadership in numbers
Before the pandemic – social gatherings
Making life fun with health
Team Generations began with a mother and daughters
Today it has grown into this – leaders from across the country

What started out as a way to eat healthy

and have our kids and grand kids eating better

has turned into a group of dedicated individuals

who share their experience of health and nutrition.

The OLD WAY HAS BEEN REPLACED
To a whole new life style
Debby Papa Sherry on the way to THE ELTON’S a celebration of recognizing individuals

Papas World – a special kind of friend – my hero.

When you are growing up – at least in my case – you look up to someone.

That person to me was my older brother – by ten years.

My sister was 15 years older – and I really do not remember –

much of her being home – although she took care of me

those first three years of my life along with my grandma

as both my parents were working.

I was sort of the second coming of the family –

and then almost four years later – my younger brother Mike.

But the thing I remember is my older brother Roger.

He was “COOL” as they said back then –

and quite the ladies man – his nickname I later found out –

across the upper portion of his H.S. varsity jacket –

was ” Anyface” !

I was told many a story about him from his friends

and I would hang out on the fringes – when they were all around.

He had a club in our basement – in the backroom –

and he had drawn pictures of Disney cartoons on the wall

and painted them – Chip and Dale – Mickey Mouse – Donald Duck.

And they were really lifelike.

I do not know why and I think they are still there.

He would put boxing gloves on me –

and I would wail away at him or his friends

they – the gloves – were bigger than me

back then I was skinny – so much so –

my Mom would not let me take my shirt off

as she said people would think she was starving me!

Somewhere – he is looking down – that smile on his face-

When he went away to college – I moved into his front of the house room.

This was Rogers room I would think – and I was excited

for he was MY HERO!

I would ask Mom – did you get a letter? Is he going to call?

Will he be coming home?

I could not wait to see him.

And that continued even after I grew up and moved on.

I would always ask those questions of her.

When he did come back home – it was a occasion.

A celebration – dinners – laughing and story telling.

And then – the last twelve years of his life –

once again we became close – very close.

We talked at least once a week and we would go and see him.

Once he came here – and a couple times back home in Eldred Pa.

When my mom and sister were still alive.

He was my Hero in early life and continued to the day he passed.

Roger
age 75
my friend and hero

I regret that we could not spend more time together

he wanted us to move to Florida and live with him.

But – life gets in the way.

I feel good because the last four years of his life

we spent 9 weeks each Winter with him

In The Villages – Florida – doing some golf -sipping some brews –

laughing and remembering –

those were the best of times I shall always cherish

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

My brother was my hero growing up

and to the day he was gone – still was

and today I think of him often

Hero’s are rare – once in a lifetime

I was fortunate to have had him.

Thank you Roger for all the good times.

Papa’s World – Squaw Valley- The adventure continues

Good Morning

When we started this trip –

We had certain places to be and see –

the unexpected were add on’s !

SQUAW VALLEY
The Village

We never even thought of this until we saw the sign while slowly driving !

So – we decided why not and took the left hand turn

And so glad we did !

The village

You see the village – but what you do not see until you get in there –

Is the tram that goes up thousands of feet –

to the semi base of the mountain

where all the action took place !

The tram to the top –
first of three leg
The Village Square

Now – I have a problem or fear of heights –

I do not like tall buildings –

I will not walk close to a drop off –

nor will I climb up high –

So you can guess I am not doing this !

The tram going up

But – the girls talked one another into doing it !

I am glad they did –

because they brought back awesome pictures

of the Olympic Ski Slopes of Squaw valley –

8000 to 10,000 feet up and beyond that mountain !

The second loop

Once they broke the top of the mountain we could see –

It continued up and over two more times –

coming to a plateau – where the facilities where –

and above that – the ski slopes –

There was still snow up there

They were told the snow finally left sometime in July –

but they could still see patches of it !

Cindy and Sherry
at the platform at the top for the tram

This is where they were told – they ski for six months of the year !

Everything they saw up there would be completely covered

under feet of snow – including the buildings !

They get over 36 feet of snow up there !

I would rather do this than ride to the top on that !!!!

Buck and I stayed down in The Village –

sipping coffee from Starbucks –

we waited and waited –

and then they came

They did it

They were giddy and so excited –

Sherry admitted that once up there

she had to restrain herself when walking around

they were so high up there –

not Cindy – she hurried around taking pictures

unafraid – living life to the plus !

Sherry and Cindy

They had crossed one off a bucket list that they did not expect !

Buck and I were content –

after all – having a Starbucks coffee in Squaw Valley Village

wasn’t expected either !

Welcome to Papa’s World – where friends meet family

Papa’s World – Yosemite – El Capitan & Awanhee Hotel

I have to give KUDO’S to the drivers of Nevada and California !

They are courteous – mindful and after passing

go back to the inside lane !

It certainly is not like where we live as HORNS are always blaring !

El Capitan

You see it rising and rising – and wonder how anyone can climb it !

Now – the other night we rented a movie called FREE SOLO !

Where someone actually climbs this without equipment !

Just fingertips and toe holds ! CRAZY !!!!!

Sherry with back drop of El Capitan

Now – I will also admit – while I knew he made it – TRUE LIFE FILM !

I was not watching it as I would dream about it !

Or at the very least lay there and think about it !

But I am glad I got to stand there and admire this wonder of nature !

You can not describe the feeling – you must see it for yourself !

The beauty of the area is just extreme pleasure in looking around !

But all things must come to a end

and we were told another must see

was the Awanhee Hotel – Lodge !

Painting Awanhee Hotel – Lodge

We traveled on down to the village

where we explored and then to the Hotel

If you stop be sure to go inside both the Village store

and the Hotel.

The Awanhee Hotel

Made out of huge logs

and you can see how they left trees growing

without damaging them !

Inside the lobby

The setting is beautiful with the backdrop of cliffs and mountains.

I do not know the price or how much snow they get

but if you are a nature lover

then put this on your list !

This finished our trip to Yosemite

and we started back

a different route

for additional scenes !

Papa’s World – Yosemite – Bridalveil Falls – El Capitan

GOOD MORNING !

Traveling Yosemite in a day – really not enough time !

But – we made the most of it

stopping often –

A must stop
BRIDALVEIL FALLS
Trying to capture a close up

We parked and started the walk to the falls !

It was a lot cooler in the shade – 104 in the Sun !

Continue the walk – slowly watching each step – because of the rocks !

A much needed rest stop with the falls behind us.

It was okay walking but you had to watch your step !

Sherry – always a step ahead – asking ” WHERE ARE YOU ” lol

Rocks everywhere!

Of course I am the one stopping to take the pictures

and making sure I do not misstep !

However – after almost a mile – we made it !

Near the base of the falls

And there was a CROWD of people – standing in the mist !

I decided to stay back in the shade with Buck.

The Sun was torture –

and beyond those people and rocks –

you could climb back to the bottom of the falls !

BLUE JAY up near the falls

By this time the ladies decided it was not worth the risk –

to attempt to climb over the wet rocks

some people told them people were slipping

and falling on those big rocks !

One last picture at the falls

We decided to take one last picture –

Cindy and Sherry standing on the big rocks

just before they get all wet !

And Cindy said she would stand on a rock so she would be as tall as Sherry

Sorry Cindy – didn’t work ! LOL

Regroup and start the walk back down

Some parts of the path were smooth

and they were working on different bridges

Papa’s World – I finally took pictures of the gator in our pond where we now live!

Down at the end of this street in Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach – is our pond – and home to a six foot GATOR!

I have seen it a couple times – but never all of “IT”!

We decided at near sunset – 7:30 pm. after watching the BMW golf tournament –

to take a walk down and around the pond.

Hoping we would see the GATOR!

Well – we did and it was laying on some grass and weeds about 75 feet from the edge of the pond!

The reflection of the houses on the water and right in the middle it lays!

I am guessing 5 to 7 feet long when the tail is out straight!

It never moved and in the fading light – I had to look twice to make sure!

So we walked along the path to see it at different angles! And it never moved!

I had the feeling it was watching us!

We have now seen it at different times – but never all the way out of the water.

At least I have taken a picture of it!

PAPA’S WORLD – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – free open air concerts at he community park on Ocean Isle Beach – N.C.

In our second attempt to come here on a Friday night – we made it!

A couple weeks ago after we moved in – we tried to come down to the beach – a band we knew was playing –

but there was a line to cross the causeway and started a half mile before the traffic circle.

We learned that next time we would come earlier – and we did – and had no wait – we drove right in and parked.

This venue is free and runs from Memorial Day right through a couple weeks in September.

All top notch bands – and it is a bring your own food and drink –

no glass containers – and most people have plastic cups.

Lawn chairs – just sit down where you want –

and they do have pop corn – water and soda’s for sale.

Bathrooms are here and this is located right at the traffic circle – across the road from the beach.

The band “CAROLINA BREAKERS” six members plus their road crew.

A friend of ours who lives back in Lancaster Pa. –

told me she grew up in a community with one of the band members and knew him quite well!

It is indeed a small world!

We stayed for over a hour –

and then drove the 4 miles back to Cameron Woods.

This community park sits right across from the bar and grill – “PELICAN PERCH” and the MINI GOLF!

The pier is but a short walk across the intersection –

and there was plenty of parking.

By the time we left –

I would say 3 to 400 people were scattered around.

I think a lot of them were locals

but also from beach rentals.

Papa’s World – GOOD MORNING from Cameron Woods – N.C. SUNRISE!

I opened the garage door to push out the garbage can – and this is what I walked out to!

It was a beautiful sun rise – the best I have yet to see here!

Everything was quiet – except the birds!

I went back inside and grabbed my phone to take a few pictures.

The sun comes up right there and that is where the Ocean is some three miles away.

We get really fantastic cloud formations from here and to the West.

As we learn the area driving around – we know we made the right choice to build here – when there is no construction – everything is quiet – and a lot of neighbors walk! So we are meeting people – I told Sherry we need name tags!!!!
The neighborhood bathed in a orange glow!

It will be a good year and half before they have built out – but most of that is away from us!

Each week more and more homes close – and people are moving in.

And I am surprised how easy it is to leave the Cameron Woods community and get onto the main road.

It is a good half mile stretch or 3/4 mile in both direction and is straight so you can see.

Only once have I had to sit and wait and that was only a minute of two.

PAPA’S WORLD – SUNRISE AT CAMERON WOODS – OCEAN ISLE BEACH – N.C.
PAPA’S WORLD

Paps’s World – Taylor – Cassidy and Bode – first day of school and Marley walking to bus stop!

On Wednesday – it marked the first day of school for fifth grade for Taylor and Cassidy and first grade for Bode.

It also was the first day for Marley – the new goldendoodle – to walk to the bus stop!

I think she has become Tayor’s to walk as she takes her all the time.

Taylor – Marley – Bode in the back and Cassidy!

At first Marley would not walk just plopping down in the middle of the sidewalk – where Taylor would pick her up and carry her – but I think she has gotten over the puppy stage now – and Taylor seems to be the one who controls her!

The three plus the dog walk a couple blocks down the street to where the school bus stops and picks them up.

We are headed there and by the time you read this will already been and came back home again.

The parents are going out of state to a wedding and we will fly home( using a few vouchers we had)

to stay with the kids and Marley.

It will be a extended weekend – and looking forward to seeing everyone including Deb – Mike and Sarah.

The other two oldest are now in college.

To think one year ago – we did the same thing – only we had sold our home and stayed there for two months until we moved to S.C. – going back and forth to Winmchester and Leesburg.

We helped out with the home schooling due to the pandemic.

The kids did well but need to structure of school and friends and classmates.

Taylor in the lead with Marley and then Cassidy followed by Bode – walking to the bus stop.

The kids really like school – making new friends and new teachers.

First day of school and walking Marley to the bus stop!
