Papa’s World – living healthy through my grand kids !

A few days ago –

I saw a post that stated ” GRAND PARENTS REMAIN YOUNG ” while watching their grand kids ! Boy – that was right on !

As most of you know – Sherry and I – pick up the twins from school -bring them home until their father picks up the youngest ( only boy grandchild) and then stops to pick up the twins !

Tammy opened her store almost one year ago – Kids consignment store – which is open every day except Monday 10 am. – 5 pm.

So – they needed help and we stepped in along with Marcus’s parents Jennie and Gehard. Since Bode’s preschool is close to them – they pick him up at 1:00 pm. and then Marcus goes after work to pick him up.

Now I must say – I really enjoy my little trip to the school – a little over one mile away. “PAPA – BE FIRST IN LINE ” is what they tell me. Well – even though I am in line one hour before they get out – most times I am second !!! That person must get there after breakfast !But – I use that time to listen and read !

Listening to my favorite radio station – not classic rock or country or rap or whatever else is out there – but ” SPORTS RADIO” 106.7 The Fan! I enjoy kicking back – using a couple wadded up blankets – for a pillow – and just spacing out listening to the talk show. This relaxes me and yes sometime I catch a quick 10 minute power nap ! When I was working – I used my lunch – one hour – every day to do the same thing ! Habits are hard to break !

But – I also listen to these two little girls – talking – conversing and sometimes a argument breaks out ! Now at that time I either look back and tell them to stop or I turn up the radio so loud – that they become silent ! LOL But I find they actually talk so much like adults – on their own daily lives.

Being with them makes me feel young at heart – relating to them – and oh my goodness – the questions are endless – and” WHY” is always asked.

But – then it gets adult like with the answer ” OF COURSE ” or ” ACTUALLY ” or “PAPA” ! I love that – and it makes you think when you answer the “WHY” !

” WHY ARE YOU NUMBER TWO AND NOT NUMBER ONE ” ? I get that one almost every week ! But – how can you argue the fact that life is about staying young even though it might only be a frame of mind !

Turn back time – can’t – capture thoughts words and deeds in pictures – you can – but staying young is a art that we all try to master.

Mine is a matter of mind over physical – thinking – acting and doing! I may not be number one in line but I think I try harder at being number two – after all – “PAPA – WHY AREN’T YOU NUMBER ONE ” keeps me on my toes each week to give a answer and that my friends keeps me young !

Papa’s World – ten years living life – looking ahead

Living life – doing it my way – the name of my blog –

And that is how our life together has gone.

Phoenix TEN years ago
Juice Plus Conference

The years have passed – but we still maintain a healthy lifestyle

Traveling – helping other people –

To this day – we love our life

When you come close to passing away

at least for me

there was no flashes of my past

no profound moments

but there was a inner peace

one that just ” LIVE FOR THE MOMENT”

and be grateful for what I lived.

Summer of 2019
Napa Valley
wine country

We could not do this without each other

Sherry – Certified Health Coach

Her health business

Papa’s World – healing – what you eat – is who you are.

It is really hard to maintain that habit –

There are so many distractions – so many smells –

Just out walking – the smells of early morning –

we live in a very diverse neighborhood –

and you can smell the cooking for meals as you walk.

And it is mouth watering !

With me – I have given up fast food – milk – ice cream – soda –

I try not to eat red meat –

I stick mainly to chicken and fish.

Small amounts and not everyday.

I like Tuna in a can – solid white packed in water.

I like raw carrots – radish – cuke’s and tomato’s.

I rarely eat processed meat or cheese.

My wife Sherry is a certified health coach –

she watches over me –

we try as often as we can to walk three miles

BUT NOW THE COLD IS HERE.

So- we walk the Mall or go to our health fitness center.

I could live in flip flops the rest of my life –

I am not a snow – ice or cold weather person.

Getting older – watching steps and stairs –

not walking on ice –

And smelling the food where ever you go.

IT CERTAINLY IS NOT EASY !

But – we have to do it !

We are aging – but our goal is to age healthy –

WE ARE WHAT WE EAT !

YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT

hopefully – this writing helps me stay the course.
