Papa’s World – health – living laughter – evolving

MY LIFE

Living life – one day at a time –

and doing it my way ( well – her way also )

Welcome to PAPA’S World !

GOOD MORNING

This is part of my story – for it has many chapters.

I have been writing – on face book –

daily – since 2011 – EIGHT YEARS !

Sherry -my wife – said –

you write so well – but I am afraid it will get lost !

YOU HAVE TO START BLOGGING –

so we can have a place to go where we can read it !

Now – I had blogged a number of years ago and had a site –

actually two sites !

But my computer crashed

and I lost all the info –

Then a couple months ago –

with the help of a friend

Belinda Vallarino Cermola

She helped set me back up again –

and by accident –

we stumbled on my second blog site that I had lost !

Here it was –

and finding it was like looking up phone numbers –

as someone who can not see with out glasses !

But – we found it while setting up my new blog site –

livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

My criteria –

Make someone smile –

Make someone happy-

No politics –

Bring light to those who are in the dark –

And help people become as healthy as possible –

I had found only FIVE blogs on that site –

The other site is still out there someplace

with hundreds of blogs –

It was all on my computer –

and I could not remember the name or password –

Someday – I hope I can once again find it –

to recapture all those stories.

Today – I am blogging one day at a time –

I really have no idea each day what I will write about –

It just happens with a picture –

a thought – a quote –

or something that I experienced recently or during my life.

I started

and changed my format –

today – I follow my criteria –

I have now been blogging daily for the past 7 plus weeks !

In that short expanse of time –

I have been fortunate to have 55 people who have subscribed to my blog !

Most I do not know

and they are from all over the World !

This has given me the hope and confidence to continue –

Hoping to bring a change –

a good vibe –

My way to help in health –

I am evolving –

I am living my life –

doing it my way – one day at a time !

And a big hug to my best friend –

the person who encouraged me to write –

MY WIFE SHERRY !

and to Belinda – who helped me to restart –

And to all of you who read my thoughts and have joined –

It does not cost anything – you get a email every time I post !

THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART

Papa’s World – NOW WHAT ?

COFFEE BEGINS MY DAY

So – our KEURIG is acting strange –

sometimes it works –

Sometimes it doesn’t !

Sherry told me –

use up all your PODS –

because this is the last KEURIG we are buying !

I think this is the third or fourth one !

ARE YOU KIDDING !!!!

We will be buying a regular coffee pot !

We had purchased a one cup KEURIG for Florida

and we dug it out !

So – now – I make my morning cup with that one !

Meanwhile – she got the OLD ONE to work !

STILL DID NOT WORK

I tried it this morning and ” NOTHING ” !

So – I guess it will be use up the pods until none are left!

COFFEE – WELL – WE CAN WORK THIS OUT

So – she does not use it for Coffee –

she uses it for Tea.

Now – I have to get use to this one cup at a time one –

And you guessed it –

it worked the first time –

BUT WOULD NOT WORK THE SECOND TIME !

I WAS LAUGHING

She said it must of been me –

so I watched how she did it – ( the first time I did it exactly this way )

And I just said

“THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I DID ” !

Oh well – tomorrow is another day –

Another try to get the old one to work –

And do exactly as she says on the one cup at a time one !

Which way does it unroll

Now – this is a topic for another day !

COFFEE – TOILET PAPER –

WHAT NEXT CAN IT BE !

SHERRY & TOM

WELCOME TO PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – Why I take JUICE PLUS & OMEGA’S

It has now been over 13 years since I started !

GOOD MORNING

My journey began with

” NO – I DON’T NEED IT ” !

Actually I DID NEED IT –

but I did not know what I DIDN’T KNOW!

1982

We were married on June 25 th. 1982 –

both of us ate terrible –

Smoked – drank Soda’s –

And thought we were invincible !

Little did we know

and when the time came for a change –

I KNEW LAST !

HOW WELL I KNEW THIS

Sherry came to me and said we are making a change –

well – she was !

It took me 3 1/2 months to see it to believe it !

That is when I started taking a supplement

( whole food ) capsules !

Fruits – Veggies – Berries –

that are JUICED – Slowly dried – into a powder –

And come packaged in

RED ( fruits) known as ORCHARD BLEND –

GREEN ( veggies ) known as GARDEN BLEND

PURPLE ( berries) known as VINEYARD

And the research shows as soon as they dissolve in your stomach –

THEY GO IMMEDIATELY INTO YOUR BLOOD STREAM !

THE POWER OF WHOLE FOOD

Everything is juiced including

the peels – rind – cores !

You get ALL THE NUTRIENTS !

THE CAPSULES INCLUDING THE ORANGE OMEGA’S and a smoothie

For me to be convinced

I had to SEE and READ –

NO PESTICIDES

That is just who I am.

NOW THERE ARE 36 RESEARCHES COMPLETED –

By MAJOR UNIVERSITIES & MEDICAL CENTERS & HOSPITALS

all over the WORLD !

JUICE PLUS

BRIDGE’S THE GAP BETWEEN RECOMMENDED & ACTUAL INTAKE

THIS IS HAPPENING

DOING SOMETHING –

not just thinking about it !

I have no regrets –

I will take this as long as I live.

I TAKE OMEGA’S FOR MY BRAIN

A year ago – I started taking another product from Juice Plus –

Called OMEGA BLEND –

made not from Fish oil –

But from Algae –

which is where the fish get it from –

Thus – no worries from MERCURY !

The company also have their own Algae Farms !

I guess we all have experienced this

When you reach your AUTUMN YEARS –

you try as hard as can to sustain a lifestyle that you have led.

You watch stairs –

you climb back up off the floor

Or gingerly kneel down on one knee –

You know when to play a game of kick ball or just pitch !

NO I CAN’T

You count MICRO SECONDS

to reach the bathroom !

BUT YOU MAKE CHANGES AHEAD OF TIME –

If you want to LIVE –

If you want to MAINTAIN that lifestyle –

Then you owe it to yourself to prepare –

to research –

To read and see what this is !

Are YOU worth $3.43 a day

for FRUITS- VEGGIES – BERRIES & OMEGA’S ?

IS YOUR HEALTH a matter of dollars and cents ?

WE ARE IN THE AUTUMN

This is my story –

my reason –

my wanting to maintain –

Enjoy life – watch my grand kids grow up –

Have a life partner who is my best friend.

Best thing I ever did was start 13 years ago –

Worse thing of my life –

” NO ONE SHOWED ME 25 YEARS AGO ” !

TOM & SHERRY living life to the PLUS

Thank you for reading

I hope this HELPS someone out there

We have been changing lives for 12 years now

Papas World – golfing- staying in touch – 38 yrs.

We played softball together in the mid ’70’s

and continued until I turned 40.

Then I played volleyball –

sometimes we played together

when I turned 48 –

I was getting too old – I turned to golf

and today – we still get together

drink a few beers and swing away

me more often than him! LOL

My buddy Jim

I am 9 years older – but we first met on the softball field

I went to his wedding

and we have been friends ever since.

We worked together before we moved

and along the way he introduced me to his friend Buck!

Buck Tom Jim
the three Amigo’s
as my wife Sherry says!

We ended up living right across the street from Buck and Cindy.

And we all would meet up-

and to this day some 35 plus years later – we still do!

Sherry Buck Cindy Dottie

Every 4 to 6 months we try to do this –

going from one house to the other

Buck and Cindy live just South of Wilmington N.C. now.

Jim and Dottie now live in Va. Beach area.

And of course we live SW of DC.

Our journey from back home – NWPA and SWNY has evolved

But we still stay in touch!

Sherry Dottie Cindy

These three together laugh and laugh –

and they sneak the fireball!

Esp. when we golf – it almost always is guys vs. the gals.

And let me tell you – NO STROKES !

Jim wants to give strokes -and they will whip us!

We have played for years and years even up

and most often it comes down to one stroke difference!

Jim and Sherry

We all were Bills fans – we kind of adopted the Redskins

only because when we moved -no one carried the Bills.

We tried for three years – there were two Sports bars

but it took a long time to get to them in DC traffic.

So – we still followed the Bills and watched the skins.

Cindy Jim Sherry Dottie

But Cindy and Buck – Dottie and Jim have remained die hard Bills Fans!

We got together this season in Wilmington

and all went to a Sports bar called the Lazy Pirate –

where we watched the Bills win!

Cindy Buck Sherry Tom

On our trip to Northern California – at a Sports bar –

in old town Sacramento!

We have been trying to get Jim and Dottie to come along

with us on one of our trips.

Maybe this year they will!

Sherry Dottie Buck
Cindy Tom Jim

It will happen one of these times

Maybe Nashville – or Gatlinburg or Oregon!

Who know where it will be next!

This is us

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY

We are blessed to have friends such as these

TOM BUCK JIM
the three AMIGO’S
Buck and Cindy’s house
is in the background

Papa’s World – Grand daughters – each selected as MVP for their teams.

Sisters – three years apart – one graduated this week –

Going on to play Soccer at University Of Lynchburg , Va.

The other – returning as a Junior – and made the Travel Team –

BOTH SELECTED AS MVP of THEIR TEAMS –

At the same position – MIDFIELDER – by their coaches!

MADDY MEYERS & ELLA MEYERS

Maddy will continue her play in college –

But the other story here is of Ella –

last TWO YEARS –

She suffered a broken bone in her foot

( one of her teammates came down on it )

And then – after almost six months ( growth plate was fractured )

She came down on it wrong and suffered a hair line fracture to her arch.

Maddy and Ella

They have been close –

very close – all through the years !

I remember the time that Maddy got a new bed –

Ella came to me –

And just like you see her smile here in this picture –

She looked at me and said

” I’VE GOT MADDY’S BED ” !

She was so proud to have her sisters white whicker single bed !

My own thoughts have been sort of a

WHAT IF –

Had she not broken those bones in her foot –

she lost two years of playing.

And in her first year back –

she was selected as MVP

and made the Travel Team!

Her confidence is back –

they both play the same position –

Ella is growing –

she now is a little taller than Maddy –

Has a very good skill set –

And now will play on –

She once again believes

after watching from the side lines.

They both hold their MVP plaques

Graduation Party was Saturday –

guests – players – relatives.

The training has begun –

running hills – sprints –

and Ella has joined in.

It will be a fun Fall

as both will start playing again.

Once again – both will pursue their dreams –

Maddy in college – Ella for two more years in high school.

Sherry – very proud grandma
Signing letter of Intent

Madison Margo Myers –

University of Lynchburg Va. Lady’s Soccer

Ella Myers – James Wood High School –

Winchester Va. Soccer

High School – Maddy
Ella & Maddy & little cousins

BELIEVE

Hope you liked the tribute to both girls.

Thank you for reading and following

Papa’s World – Two years in a row – ” THE MIGHTY MACAW”

She had no idea – we were told as were her parents –

Taylor – eight years old –

was to be recognized in a assembly Tuesday !

Madison Trust Elementary School –

their school ensigma is THE MACAW !

And – each year

each grade will name students

and present them with a award –

The award is for achievement – helpfulness – kindness – respectful – patience

Sort of a GOOD CITIZEN AWARD !

Foe the second year in a row –

Taylor was called upfront –

and presented the award !

Taylor – on stage in front of the assembly – being presented the MIGHTY MACAW AWARD

She had no idea – and her third grade class has nearly 230 classmates !

Although they are twins –

they are like day and night !

Cassidy is the busy one –

always moving – doing – cartwheels – rollerblading

Taylor – she likes her alone time –

studying – reading – horses – animals.

Bode came to watch

She was so giddy – smiling – and surprised –

TWO YEARS IN A ROW !

Always that smile
Smiling

Her smile – her warmth – her always helping others.

She loves animals

I will always remember her

as the one who comes for a hug –

But also as the one who disappears –

to find her off somewhere alone –

Reading a book or writing a journal on horses !

Taylor loves riding

She is our little equestrian –

learning not only how to ride –

but care for them !

She writes books and journals –

researching – books from the library.

Her school essays are on horses.

Someday – I see her in competitions !

Always a smile – always horses

Yesterday she was recognized – walking upfront –

smiling – giddy –

” THE MIGHTY MACAW”

Papas World – How to deal with a BULLY!

My wife said to me –

” You have to get on face book – all your friends keep asking

about you”! circa 2011 or 2012!

So – I joined and made lots of old and new friends –

And then – about three years ago – it happened!

Sherry – independent
free thinker
church family country
I love her for that

She asked me what I thought –

She wanted to march in protest

#metoo Women’s rights The women’s march in DC.

ONE MILLION WOMEN and she wanted to represent

herself and her daughters!

I have always encouraged her to stand up –

We do not always agree on the same things

but we agree to disagree.

I have always believed in equal rights for women.

She went three years ago – I watched it all on TV.

Some of the things she saw and heard upset her.

Mostly she was proud she made a statement

and I was so proud of her – she would talk to me

she would tell me what was happening

And it was all good until she posted on face book.

The first message came in PM
Not to me but to her
from a friend of mine I grew up with
” I don’t understand why you and all hose women are there” ?

The question –

I thought “REALLY” !

But – since we were friends –

we talked it over

and she explained to him!

She did it for her self worth – her daughters and to protest

the new amoral administration.

She did it for the inequality and looking down to

she had to see and hear in her work life.

The unequal pay – and yes being harassed.

“He did not see any of that in his life – nor his wife did either” he returned.

And so it went on – as the years passed
a few more quips
then I became involved

About a year ago – I BECAME INVOLVED –

she had asked me not too-

over the previous years.

I answered – and it was a long answer –

but also based in facts.

She hugged me and said ” I wish I could think like that”!

“It was perfect – you did it the right way” !

There never was a reply – but during other conversations

I sensed he was not happy with my answer.

Then – a few months ago – it got worse-

and I could see from that on face book

it was as though it reflected the way the White house

also was responding more and more every day.

They were the same – more and more ugly.

One post came through – we were coming back from something

And Sherry had been following the little girl from Sweden

Her heritage –

and she marveled at the strength of her and her message on climate change

( If you think it not happening – then I can sell you the Brooklyn Bridge)

It was so nasty as she read it – to the extent she should be shot and burried

She was mentally wrong in the head to put it in mild terms

he used something else –

She was reading this and then she said

” I do not want you to read this ” and she deleted it!

She made it so that he could not see her posts .

And asked me not to get involved.

He started to make comments
on my posts
attacking people who
commented on my post
PUSHING BUTTONS

When I posted what I thought to be a funny comparrison

I post funny – good and thought provoking quotes –

pictures and jokes every day –

to make people smile and have good thoughts.

I very rarely do Politics

And I keep it clean.

But – out of the blue he attacked the post – my friends and me.

He was doing to us what is being done every day from the White house

almost as if he were given the go ahead to do whatever he wanted!

But – in my life – I can see a BULLY when I see and read one.

And – it is not going to happen on my own face book page.

We can have a discussion
we can frame our words
not to be nasty
we can agree to disagree
but you are not going
talk down to me

I answered him for myself and my friends-

In no uncertain terms

we could remain friends but this was going to stop.

He did not like it and came back in a unflattering

description –

That was it – I replied and told him I wished him a healthy long life

and May the peace of the Lord go with him

But he was done on my site – and then I blocked him.

Over 55 years of friendship
I can see this happening all over
and it is a tell tale sign
of just what comes from
the White house
divide
It is not the party I grew up and loved
It has gotten ugly

I had many messages –

both private and on the site

Applauding me for standing up –

not bowing before a BULLY

and also stating facts –

not groveling in the dirt

I have slowly
been not following
people who post
ugly – cruel posts

I see a lot of posts that simply are not true

The disinformation is real

they post without fact checking

sharing really ugly and slandering posts.

I would hope in this new year that it would get better

But as long as it comes from the top

it will – I am afraid become worse.

This is my setting the record
straight blog
a lot of people saw what took place
and asked me about it
I will not stand by
and see my wife harassed
or my friends bullied
I WILL BEND
BUT I WILL NOT BREAK

Today is my putting my mind at ease

as it has bothered me

I do not take it lightly those 55 years of friendship

But I also have faith – love and compassion

I answer to my faith – family and country

Sherry and Tom
MORMOR & PAPA

Thank you for being my sounding board today

and thank you for reading
