Papa’s World – Watching football on Sunday afternoon at Chubby Buddha!

Watching the BILLS play!

One and one-half miles from our house sits this unique little bar – right along the airstrip –

of Ocean Isle Beach airport.

CHUBBY BUDDHA is the name – I have no idea why it is called that!

In N.C. if you do not sell food – you are considered a private bar –

so, therefore – when you come in – there is a terminal – you put your information in –

get a coded password( your telephone number) and pay the grand sum of ONE DOLLAR-

and you are a member for the year!

It is what I call a “LOCALS” bar – some people show up to watch the game – others to play the state KENO GAMES on a wide screened TV on the wall.

Most beers are $3.00 – except the IPA which we do not drink nor do I drink the draft there.

Those all cost more.

But it is a fun little hangout – no one bothers you – and you can ask for what game you want to watch

on one of the many TVs on the walls.

The bar itself is U-shaped – there are two rooms and big outdoor seating – some of it covered.

We go with neighborhood friends – mainly because it is only a short distance from the house.

Thanks for reading Papa’s World

I like local bars where all the locals go! If you are ever here with us – then we just might take you here.

Papa’s World – The arrival of the “LITTLE ONES”

Sherry on arrival at Myrtle Beach International Airport with Cassidy – Bode and Taylor.

Sherry flew back to NVA to watch the twins in a play and because both parents work – instead of them paying

for a couple weeks at summer camp –

they bought plane tickets instead and she flew back with them for me to pick up!

The parents were coming down the following week anyways for a in law family vacation about a hour South of us.

We spent the day yesterday with them – in the sun and the warm water of the ocean.

They were so excited and we planned a full week with them. A few dust ups as childeren will have –

But once we seperated the two –

Cassidy and Bode – it was fine.

Taylor – who is only ten years old – will be taller than her MorMor ( Sherry ) who is 5’9″.

They were so excited to do a number of things – being a gradparent can be exhausting! LOL
After seeing the POWER BOAT ride and wanting to go right away – the little guy got nervous!

I had purchased the tickets for he and I – and while standing in line he said to me –

“Papa – can we get a refund”?

“No” I said.

“PAPA – I am scared – will you hold onto me”?

OF COUSE and I did and he loved it – wanting to go again!

About to start out – Bode and I in the back seat – where it seemed all the water came in and on top of us!
