Papa’s World – Counting our blessings – a year in review – family – friends!

Christmas 2019 – the start of the year in review!

All the grand kids and their parents with Sherry and myself.

When this picture was taken – the only thing we had planned

was for her 16th. birthday – we would take Ella to Florida with us for a week.

She would go to Hollywood studios to see Star Wars!

When each grand child turns 16 – we do something special with them.

Maddy wanted to swim with the Manatee’s and we did that!

Growing up in the ’60’s – we never imagined taking trips with grandparents – mine were all gone by the time I was 16!

As the year progressed – plans were made and soon – we would leave for one month in Florida.

But first – quality time with the young ones.

I will for the rest of life see this as MORMOR and Taylor – walking hand in hand to church!

Although now she is only ten years old – she comes up to just under Sherry’s chin.

She is going to be very tall and loves horse back riding!

2019 was also the year we had friends from AZ. come to visit – and accomplished crossing off everything on their bucket list to see in DC. This is a reflection of Sherry among the ghosts of the Korean War.

Many friends visited over the 21 years we lived outside D.C.

We acted as tour guides – and in the year past – we toured almost every facility

there was to visit including the Capital Building which was a first for us!

The year in review – blessings will continue in the next blog!

We also venture to outside Raleigh – N.C. to visit her sister.

Here – we went to a farm that had what are called BELTED COWS – GOATS & CHICKENS!

They are white with a black belt around the middle!

Never heard of this and never saw this before!

Papa’s World – we took a trip South – to see some “COWS”

We visited a resort called
Fearrington
where they have
black belted COWS
and Chickens and Goats!
And a community
of different houses!

We went South to Fuquay-Varina

Just outside Raleigh N.C. where

Sherry’s sister moved about two years ago.

Sherry and Debbie

We have been here once before and decided to take

a quick long weekend trip

One of the things we did was visit Fearrington Farm

a resort that has white belted Cows – Goats and Chickens.

I have no idea HOW they produce the breeds

but they are Black with a white furry belt

In fact all the Cows – Goats are really furry

as are the Chickens ( fluffy feathers)

Fluffy neck belted chickens

The animals were all inside pens or pastures

and we got to see them up close

It was the first time I had ever heard of them!

what I call
HARVEY
The rabbit
made from strands of Copper wire
Sherry had farm fresh
Tomato soup
and I think Goat toasted cheese
She said it was very good
Debbie had the same
I had the farm fresh salad
squash – shrimp(cooked)
with goat cheese
and it also was very good

They have several places to eat

and a spa and Inn to stay at ( $450.00 / night)

There is shopping and a really neat BOOK STORE !

Just outside where we ate
a quiet place to reflect
and next to outside seating

We walked around the bookstore & hundreds of books

had little review notes attached to them

All the books were colorful colors

and I found myself a little over whelmed

As I was unable to just focus

there were so many!

Belted goats

I found the place charming

interesting and colorful

I also thought I would like to come back

In the Summer

and try out the upscale Inn
