Papa’s World – saying goodbye to my HS friend Bob and then playing the second match with – Jim – Cindy and Buck

bThey had stored the RV in a campground four miles from the house – and for a week stayed with us.

Bob and Pam came to visit – we had planned these months in advance.

Pam went with Sherry to Tenn. for a health retreat while Bob stayed and then my friend Jim came-

we played golf – talked and they became friends.

Here we are saying goodbye as he prepares to pull out and meet Sherry and Pam.

It was a good week rekindling old memories.

Now it was show time in the second match scramble Cindy and I vs. Jim and Buck.

We played the previous day at Thistle – where after 18 holes they held a two-stroke advantage.

Tieing the front nine and they won the second nine 38 to 40.

Jim and Buck waiting for the green to clear.

This time we moved the scramble to Sandpiper – which is right next to Thisltle.

27 holes here and we played 18.

Cindy watched the ball when Buck and Jim hit.

We managed to tie the match up after the front nine – Cindy and I.

I had strained the tendon in my right arm ( it later turned all black and blue ) But I was still able to putt and hit selected shots.

If she hit a good shot – then we just played hers – if not – then I hit and if it was good we played mine.

BEEN THERE – DONE THAT! LOL
Jimmy – waiting for fairway to clear.
The second nine we not only had made up the two strokes from the day before – but we went ahead!
They saw that cart – we were on a roll!

It ended up with Cindy and I making up the two shots and winning the two-day scramble.

We missed Sherry and Pam – next time we will do a scramble with all the friends.

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – Playing Scottish Links course THISTLE with friends – Buck – Cindy and Jim.

THISTLE is one of the premier courses in our area – everyone wants to play – 27 holes!
Cindy teeing off on a par three.

It is a links course molded into deep sand traps and mounds with long seagrass.

The clubhouse is full of antique items straight from Scotland.

Even has one of OLD TOM MORRIS clubs in a display case.

We gathered together the four of us – Cindy and I vs. Jim and Buck!

They beat us by two strokes over 18 holes.

The second match is the next day at Sandpiper- another course next to THISTLE!

All of the cart paths on the THISTLE are wide concrete paths.

Buck teeing off.

It was an enjoyable afternoon with a lot of bantering going back and forth between Cindy and Jim!

Many stops at the bathrooms along the way!

Jimmy after hitting his shot.

The course is very challenging – water and sand traps – long seagrass.

Cindy checking yardage with Jim looking on!

Papa’s World – My oldest friend – my next to the oldest friend – they had never met – now they are friends!

I would say all three of us need to do this! LOL

Bobby and I go back to grade school in the mid-’50s and then onto graduation.

Jimmy and I go back to the very early ’70s and the start of playing softball for ten years or more.

Both have been in my majority of life although separately – never meeting one another.

That all changed when they both came to visit and now today they are also friends.

Bobby hitting first across the water to the green – Jimmy watching and will hit next – we played a scramble.

Bob’s wife Pam and my wife Sherry – went away for an extended weekend to the Great Smoky Mountains in Tenn.

To Gatlinburg and a health conference with 12 other ladies!

We decided to do this and play some golf.

We went across the street from Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach where we live and play one of the BIG CAT COURSES!

There are four of them over there and this one is called Panther’s Run.

Jimmy putting it on the green with the second shot

They hit it off right away – Jimmy is about eight years younger than us – Bob knew his family but was long gone from Eldred when Jim and I started playing softball together.

Bobby laughed at something Jimmy said.
Jimmy after making the approach shot to the green.
Time to contact the wife!
Another approach shot on the green.
Nothing but the truth here! LOL
And of course, we headed to a Tiki Bar at Jinks Creek to have a drink and dinner!

Thank you for reading Papa’d World – WHERE FRIENDS MEET OUR FAMILY – FAMILY MEETS OUR FRIENDS!

My two oldest friends – Bobby and Jimmy – never met and now are friends! This is how it goes in PAPA’S WORLD!

Papa’s World – taking our friends out to dinner at the BOUNDRY HOUSE in CALABASH, N.C.

Pam and Bob

We have rekindled our friendship of long – long ago – grade school and H.S. buddies.

Bob and I grew up together – playing sports – sleepovers and sleep outsides-

Countless adventures while growing up in a little town in North West Pa. called ELDRED!

Now – like Mayberry – everyone knew your name –

and like Stand by me – we had a group of friends –

it was just that way.

Inside the main dining area of the BOUNDRY HOUSE!

This place is in high demand – so mush so they built a brand new sitting area covered outside!

It is part of a group of restaurants – Clarks in Little River – and Oyster Rock also in Calabash.

Each one is hard to get into – reservations are the way EXCEPT-

Sherry walked in and found that the bar tables are first to come and first served!

Even though there were 20 plus people in line!

Just a hint on how to get seating – we did not know!

Looking around – this was our age group! LOL
Sherry was admiring the metal hangings and decided she has to have one for the wall in the foyer!

Boundry house is a destination to take friends – good food – good atmosphere and good company!

Papa’s World – Bob and PJ – Leopards Chase – golfing and seeing Gators!!

Pam ( PJ) and Sherry – Leopards Chase Golf Course – Ocean Ridge Plantation – Ocean Isle Beach, N.C.

Before they came to visit – we told them we would take them to the beach and also golfing!

They were excited at that – they both had gone to a driving range – and had their clubs.

Across the street from us sits four courses called THE BIG CATS golf courses in Ocean Ridge.

I made tee times at Leopards Chase.

We saw this medium gator on the bank across from the tee box.
And then a few holes later at another tee box – I happened to look over the bank and saw this BIG GATOR!

I had told them we most likely would see a gator or two!

Pam teeing off with Sherry watching.
Bathroom break and letting a twosome play through – we never saw another person again!
It was that type of day – quiet – no one around – just four friends meeting up once again.
Bobby teeing off with Sherry watching.

A day of golfing with friends – playing a scramble – we shot an 83 – not bad for us hackers – if only we had made those putts!

Of course a drink afterward.

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – When friends visit – PJ and BOB!

TO THE BEACH!

When we selected this home to be built – it would be a home to welcome FAMILY and FRIEND!

A home with places to lay your head down – rest – relax and enjoy with us!

For that is who we are – we love our FAMILY and FRIENDS!

My oldest friend from grade school – Bobby.

We grew up together – played sports – stayed at each other’s homes – slept outside – roamed the streets –

grew up together in a very little town in NWPA called Eldred-

a place you could say MAYBERRY and STAND BY ME in the same breath and both would be right!

That would be the both of us! I have long-term memory – Bobby – not so much until I bring it up!

But that friendship still exists all these years later.

As in this picture – we both are in our Autumn years – living each day to the best we can.

Nature – God, and Country – being blessed in our lives – traveling and seeing friends family, and new adventures.

Look back and see the memories – look to the present and see blessings – look to the future of meetings yet to come!
BOBBY – PAM (PJ) SHERRY

GOLFING IS IN ALL OUR FUTURES – thanks for reading PAPA’S WORLD livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

PAPA’S WORLD – WHEN FRIENDS VISIT – PJ and BOBBY

Papa’s World – meet up at The GEORGE on the Cape Fear river with friends.

With our friends Cindy – Buck – Ginger and Jason.

Ginger and Jason were on there way back to Florida – and stopped off just outside Magnolia Greens –

Where our friends the McBrides live.

They are looking to buy and build in Brunswick Forest right acroos rte 17 there.

So – we decided to invite the four of them together so they could meet!

We are longtime friends of both couples and we all like to golf.

THE GEORGE sits right on the Cape Fear river in historic Wilmington N.C.

Altough we have been friends for a long while with both couples –

they have never met!

And the future holds promise of many golfing dates together after they finish their build some 14 to 16 months from now!

When that happens – Ginger and Jason will sell their condo in Florida and move to the Leland N.C. area.

They had sold their previous home in Reston Va. is where we knew them.

They have been searching for a place to settle since they sold their home.

A very big cruiser passes us while we are eating on the Cape Fear river.

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 –

“WHERE FRIENDS MEET OUR FAMILY & FAMILY MEETS OUR FRIENDS”!

Papa’s World – riding the waves – first time – cross off the bucket list – Tube Riding!

Cindy and I riding the wake on the tube!

Once – in my teens – I waterskied – I managed to get up and if I stayed behind the boat – I was okay!

Well – that ended as the person pulling me decided to throw me out wide – and it was all over!

This was our second tube ride – the first was quiet and slow – so we decided to step it up a little!

The first ride was before the rain storm – and we talked it over and decided we could go a little faster –

We had gotten up to 10 MPH and while it was okay – it was just being pulled behind a boat ride!

We are about to go outside the wake – and ended up going 20 MPH! That was fast!

At one point we went wide left and were even alongside the boat!

I have now achieved my goal of tubing and can cross it off my bucketlist.

I have water skied – cross country skied and now tubed – no down hill sking for me.

There are several videos – one where we flew out to the left and were racing side by side with the boat.

But – I do not know how to get them on here so can not show them!

I decided after

that I did it

and now I was done.

Papa’s World – in the boat – on the lake – taking shelter during a quick rainstorm.

We had just made our first slow loop around the cove on the tube – Cindy and I.

The sky turned gray – and we could see the rain coming – so we got back on the boat – pulled the tube up on the rear walkway – and headed into the covered dock area.

I had tried tubing – even if it were a slow trip around – and I was ready to go back out again and speed things up!

It was a quick rain shower and we drove onto the boat lift which is covered.
There was no lightening – just a steady rain.

We talked and decided to once again go tubing – this time a little bit faster – as the first time was sort of boring!

The rain continued for about a half hour – and we could watch it from under the canopy. We had some munchies and drinks – and were dry – the boat has a really good radio so we listened to music and talked.
Cindy and I – life jackets on – the rain almost stopped – for the time being – we were dry!

Papa’s World – at the lake house on Lake Chautauqua – W.N.Y.

Our neighbors from 30 plus years ago in Pleasant Acres Drive.

The Johns now have a lake house on Lake Chautauqua in W.N.Y. A large natural lake some 30 miles long.

For the second year in a row – we have gathered there at the invitation of Carol and Mike –

for a long weekend of telling stories – catching up and boating!

Early morning view from the enclosed porch overlooking the deck – dock and lake with the sunrise.
Buck – Mike – Carol sitting and just relaxing on the porch.
They have accomplished this in this home away from home.
They are here most weekends.

Papa’s World – Part two – inside the new house – almost done – furniture arrived!

The guest bathroom – off the front hall but between both bedrooms.

Still thinking this one through – the rug we are trying out – she might just keep this one! LOL

Front bedroom – carring on the light gray and yellow theme. It is in here that drawings form Ella and Cassidy are hung.

This room also has the Swedish heritage items – as Sherry is Swede – her grandmother came ferom Sweden.

A drawing of a little girl in the rain with umbrella by Cassidy when she was nine.

This to me is like a HALLMARK card – so simple yet so carefully drawn of a little girl by a little girl.

This was drawn by Ella when she was 17 years old

A picture of our front porch in Brambleton where I sat everyday until the sun got too hot!

She captured it perfectly right down to the flowers and Swedish horses!

Papa’s World – Tigers Eye – Ocean Ridge Plantation N.C. – golfing with friends.

Sherry and Cindy – we do a scramble – husbands vs. wives – and we can not beat them!

Try as hard as we can – we can stay even – first nine we lost by one – we pared and they birdied –

they never get into trouble – if one does – the other is in the middle – just consistent –

they are almost always putting for par and when they are on with the putts –

they will beat you!

This is Ocean Ridge Plantation – right across the road from our new home.

There are four courses in here and this one – TIGERS EYE is the second one we have golfed on.

This is called the bIG CATS courses – all named after the big cats of the world.

LIONS PAW – PANTHERS RUN – LEOPARDS CHASE and this one TIGERS EYE!

We have what is called the FIRST TEE CARD – all four of us – and we can play 32 different courses on it at almost half the going rate for the course.
Sherry just hitting the ball and right down the middle!
Cindy hitting off the tee – she hits about 150 to 175 every time!

We have fun first – laugh a lot and plan our shots – but – hey – they are tough to beat!

They play the ladies tees as does Buck – I play the senior tees.

The courses here in NC and SC are mostly all like this – except if they have a special theme.
Very challenging with lots of water and sand traps which the sand I found off my drive on every hole!
There is wildlife and water fowl all over and most courses here have “Gators”!

You just are careful – looking always for them and watch for snakes in deep grass or wooded area.

My buddy for 35 years – BUCK!

Papa’s World – Magnolia Greens – golfing again with friends – a place to stay when lease ended.

Our condo lease was up – our closing did not happen – so they took us in once again to their home –

on Magnolia Greens golf course just outside Leland, N.C.

Buck and Cindy are our friends – before we all moved – we were neighbors back in WNY.

We moved into a house next to them some 36 1/2 years ago and we knew them before that.

Sherry and Cindy
William ( Buck) McBride

I have always known him as BUCK – never called him Bill.

About 15 years ago – he developed non essential tremors – and had a brain operation – where electric probes were implanted – with out them and the control under his skin on his chest – he would not have any control on his right side – arm and leg. The downside to having this implanted – is with it turned on – he loses his clarity on speech –

and has problems with balance. But – he still can golf and handle himself well – I drive – watch his ball –

and we get a handicap flag that allows us to get near his ball so he does not get so tired out.

He is one of my two best friends – the other Jimmy who I played softball with back in the mid ’70’s.

We all are close friends and Dottie – Jim’s wife – I have known as long as Jim.

The three of us grew up in the same small town of Eldred Pa.

Cindy and Buck grew up in Portville N.Y. just across the border and Sherry grew up in Mount Jewett Pa. aboput 35 miles away.

Sherry spotting Cindy’s drive – Buck waiting – let me tell you – both ladies seldom get out of bounds or in the rough.

They are right down the middle and anywhere from 130 to 175 yards!

It makes them tough to beat – I golf from the senior tees – and when I get a good drive – it still is about even with them

as they have a advantage from the ladies tees.

Buck – because of his condition – golfs from the same tees as the ladies –

so a lot of the time we use his ball on the scramble –

He can still hit it almost as far as they can.

Buck teeing off and if you look close – right over his head in the tree line is his ball – going down the middle!
Sherry hitting another ball down the middle while Cindy watches.

We play even up – no strokes – and this time out – after 18 holes – Buck and I lost by one stroke!

Their second shots are like the drives – and close to the green – a chip and one putt for par or worse two putt.

Sherry and I just love to play – get out – fresh air – and a lot of laughs.

Cindy has a traveling shot bar!

If we make a birdie – it is shot time – since we make few of them – she switched it to pars! LOL

Playing Sherry’s drive from the last picture! Cindy was a little behind her on this hole.

They pared – we boggied – missed putt – and that was the difference in the 18 hole match!

Papa’s World – Friends – then the rain came – golf inside – walk in the rain – finally beach!

Our well laid plans for a day of golf went out the window as the storm moved in and stayed all day!

We had planned this for over a month – we would golf on Sunday – at 1:00 PM. but – it was still raining at that time –

So – we did the next best thing – we had a putting contest – in the condo!

We laid out a nine hole course – even a dog leg left – short putts and long putts!

We used clear plastic cups as holes – all you had to do was hit the cup –

and even one hole went from carpet – to regular floor – and if you missed – you rolled way past to the front door!

Dottie – on hole number seven before the carpet – over regular floor – to front door hole number 8!

It came down to Jim and Cindy – tied at end of nine and still tied after extra hole playoff!

Then it was closest to the cup with out going past it.

Jim won by just a couple inches!

The rain slacked off – enough that we decided to go outside and walk to the beach!

Jim – Papa Cindy and Dottie and a surfer dude carrying his board!

The surf was up and large waves!

It was not raining hard and soon let up!

The beach and surf – hardly anyone there!
Okay – rain stopped – Jim and Cindy checking out the water with their umbrellas!
We went back to the condo – picked up our chairs and drove back to the beach.

Jim – after a while – went for a swim – it was warm and so was the water – well – a little chilly!

We stayed for over a hour – and hardly anyone was there!
Time to go back to the condo – fix dinner – relax – play games – even though golf was a wash out –

we had a fun day – putting – walking in the rain and then enjoying the beach by ourselves!

Papa’s World – Friends – last day – golf at The Valley – East port – dinner – SNOOKY’S – ocean

Sherry and Pam – about to start our golf adventure – Pam could not golf – still recovering from a achilles surgery

On their last full day – Bob wanted to play golf – we last played together I would guess 1965 or 1966!

A very long time ago – and he had their clubs in the RV but had not used them all winter.

Pam – who was still recovering from surgery on her heel – would do the driving and Bob rode with me.

Bob and I went to school together from grade one to grade twelve.

They have wintered the last two seasons in their RV – this time it was in Florida.

They made it a point to stop here on their way to family in Nashville before heading home in N.H.

Sherry and Pam
Waiting to tee off – we like this course which sits right on Rte. 17 in Little River – S.C. It is a short course but fun to play. Sherry and I have golfed here alone and with friends.
Now – she hits it on the fairway most times – and every once in a while – will hit it just right and bingo – it goes a long ways – here is a 298 yard hole for her – and this is her drive!

When you play a scramble and her and Cindy hit from the women’s tees – it is good to have them both on your team!

After a good day of golf – we scrambled to a 44 on both nines – we took them to Cherry Grove to one of our favorite places to eat – “SNOOKY’S” on the Beach.

This has become our go to place to take visitors – food is good – and you sit ocean front just yards off the sand.

We have many – many memories of growing up together in a small town in NWPA – called Eldred.

Many adventures of sleeping out under the stars – roaming the streets after curfew at 10:00 PM.

Nothing bad – raid a garden or two – sneak some beer – campfire – canoe trips down the river –

playing sports together – proms – dances – joining the exployer’s together-

driving – family – both his and mine.

Bob and Sherry checking out the beach where we walk every day!
Pam and I a selfie while they discuss the beach!
Ending our day together – walking to the cars. Pam and Bob!

Papa’s World – friends – the pier – Barefoot Landing – Crooked Hammock Brewery!

Next to last day – Papa Bob Pam Sherry – near their campground and RV. A visit to Apache Pier!

We had so much to pack in so little time – touring – seeing the house – Mother’s day – catching up – FRIENDS!

Their RV and campground was down the beach about a mile and one half.

They could see this pier from their beach so we decided to drive to it and just take a look around.

Just beyond these tall buildings – 21 to 25 years ago – Sherry and I spent I think three different vacations here!

We would walk up the beach and past this pier to the campground.

So we knew what was here and have many fond memories of her parents – sister and my sister and brother in law here. We also spent vacation time here with friends Steve and Elaine. Our friends from back home in WNY!

Bob and Pam – Bob and I went to grade school – middle school and high school together – life long friends – and got back in touch after one of our H.S. reunions – he had moved to New Hampshire away from Pa. and NYS. Keeping in touch is like normal best buddies do when life comes along – only seeing them at special times – a lot of years in between but memories and laughs renewed!

Here we are at The Crooked Hammock Brewery in Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach.

We have come to really like this place and Sherry actually likes some of the beer!

Papa’s World – Mother’s day – with friends at Calabash – OYSTER ROCK!

Toasting to MOTHER’S DAY with good friends – Bob and Pam and Sherry! CHEERS!

We had planed this little get together for some time now.

They had been in Florida for the winter in their RV.

Moving around down there and then working their way back North.

They were in a campground eight miles from the condo’

So for three whole days – we gave them a tour – but the first day was Mother’s Day.

After their arrival we went down and joined them – sitting around – talking – and we stopped and brought them salads.

Then it was for a very quick walk on the beach where they were camping!

It was so WINDY – we took this picture and headed back to the campsite.

A lot of self control in not staying on the beach for a walk! LOL
The next day we picked them up – toured our new home and discovered the drywall had been installed!

Here – we are at Oyster Rock on the ICW in Calabash N.C. where we had reservations for dinner.

A walk along the boardwalk outside of Oyster Rock – here is where the fishing boats return with their catches!
Charter and fishing boats – they provide fresh catch for these places – including Oyster Rock – on their menus.
Fresh catch – Flounder – broiled!
Fresh catch – Mahi-Mahi! Catch of the day!
And of course – down here – HUSH PUPPIES!
Pam Sherry Papa Bob – a wonderful Mother’s day dinner with good friends!

At Oyster Rock in Calabash N.C. on the ICW!

Papa’s World – a evening with friends golfing Magnolia Greens – late dinner!

A bright sun rise to a eventful full day of walking – getting ready – visiting the storage unit – and finally – teeing off!
Buck on the first tee at 4:40 pm. We were golfing late – Cindy had a lot of stuff to do at work!

So – the plan was made – golf nine – eat dinner and then go home!

We could of stayed with them – but – lugging all the stuff I need – my sleep machine etc. just easier to drive the hour plus drive back to the condo – besides – plenty of more times exist in the future!

Sherry getting ready to tee off on the second hole!

We played our scramble format – Buck and me – they played best ball – WE LOST!

Cindy teeing off – Sherry spotting the ball!

Now – we lost two holes to them – one by one stroke and one by two strokes!

We play even up – and we tied the other seven holes.

But – on the hole we lost by one stroke – we parred – they birdied!

On the one we lost by two strokes – they parred and we four putted – just the way it goes!

Cindy – birdie putt – made it – we parred – they are so good!

We have played this format for years and years – we at one time played couples vs couple – then we played mixed couple vs. mixed couple – but the gals challenged us – the other ways split pretty even – this way – THEY WIN!

My buddy – my partner – golfing together – we did beat them a few weeks ago – but we had to shoot a 39 to beat them!
Thank you for reading Papa’s World – my drive – second shot coming up – we four putted – double bogie – LOST!
Sherry teeing off – right down the middle – both are that way!

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – Crooked Hammock – Greg Normans – Carolina Opry – with FRIENDS!

PAPA BUCK SHERRY CINDY outside Crooked Hammock Brewery in Barefoot landing S.C.

They stopped and picked us up – we had tickets to see Time Warp at the Carolina Opry Theater in Myrtle Beach

But first – we stopped at Barefoot Landing at the new Brewery Crooked Hammock.

Sherry had decided to make a switch to beer – as that is what we mostly drink.

She wanted to try it and just see if she would like it! ( SHE DID)!

She and Cindy ordered a flight of four different brews and tasted each one!

She found two she could drink!

Now – when together – she can drink some brews! LOL

We then walked across the street to Greg Normans – bar and eatery.

Yes – that Greg Norman – the Aussie great golfer!

It was a first for us and we had walked past it numerous times.

My lettuce wedge with salmon was excellent and they all said theirs was good as well!

AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE!!!!!!!

Will go back!

We had tickets – just a short drive down the beach in Myrtle Beach.
To see TIME WARP – music from the 60’s – 70’s and 80’s – what we grew up with!

And it was fantastic!

We knew every non stop song for over one hour – and then intermission!

And then for one hour more – non stop!

Do to the Pandemic and Social Distancing – no one sat in front – side or back of us.

It said the show was sold out but it was less than half full.

Very professional – wearing masks to our seats – and no one within I would say almost ten feet!

It felt good to once again enjoy music and just relax to a very good broad way style revue!

A cast of dozens – top performers – America’s got talent – The Voice and American Idol.

So many talented people who all can sing – dance – play instruments and perform at a high level!

Well – I had a beer – but it was a special time for special drinks!

PAPA’S WORLD livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – random pictures – kids – golf – and a rainbow in the fountain on the lake.

Today – I post some pictures – just random pictures – but ones I have close to my heart!
Taylor holding MorMor’s hand – in turn MorMor also holding Bode’s hand.

They adore Sherry – whom they call MorMor – Swede for Mothers Mother!

When we walk with all three – it usually is Taylor who loses out to the other two in holding her hands.

This time it was Cassidy – who with each passing day – is becoming more and more independent.

These two are coming closer and closer together as they grow up.

They are twins – but had to come early as Taylor was taking all the nutrients.

Taylor is going to be really tall – close to six foot while Cassidy will be like her mother 5’6″.

Taylor loves to ride horses – Cassidy has a variety of interests –

but will sit for hours drawing off her computer and is really good!

I thought this to be funny – it brought a smile to my face!

We moved south to find more time to golf – warmer weather and being close to our friends!

Sherry and Cindy – we have been friends with the McBrides for almost 35 years.

They moved about 25 or 26 years to the Wilmington N.C. area – and we would spend time with them once or twice a year.

Then we moved to NVA and they would do the same.

Now – we are building a new home about 40 miles away from them –

and if the weather is nice – we golf once a week with them –

always on a new course – could be on the weekend or a week day.

They can and do stay with us and we do the same with them.

If our new home is not done on time and we have to give up the condo – they have offered us a place to stay.

FRIENDS! GOOD TIMES! LAUGHS!

This is what we have wanted to do for a very long time – it was too expensive in NVA and down here so many courses to choose from.

We both have a love to golf – one of Sherry’s highlights in golfing came with the day she broke 50 –

and it was a day she was golfing with her father!

A memory she shall always carry with her on the course. Now – she beats me! LOL

The view we have almost every morning when we wake up – the master bedroom has a big glass sliding door on her side of the bed – where all she has to do each morning is open her eyes and see this.

I see it each morning also – but I always am up before the dawn – have been that way all my life.

My favorite time of the day – writing my blog – sipping my coffee and watching the sun rise –

listening to the sounds of nature and just enjoying morning time.

Now the sun shines – causing a rainbow in the mist of the water fountain!
A peaceful setting we shall miss when we leave – but we have had by the end – nine months.

A memory we shall carry forward into the new home.

You can hear the pounding surf a half mile away –

We walk there almost every day –

the water fowl – geese – ducks – mallards – swans – otter – turtles – snakes

and really huge fish we can see when we look down onto the water.

Storms blowing in and out – rain and wind – nature at its best.

It would of been nice to have lived to the left of the picture – single family homes!

But – they were way too expensive – and the condos here – not enough space and no garage.

We have a storage unit – not a lot – but enough so that it would not fit.

The town houses here besides the condo’s – were out of our price range –

plus the one we looked at – needed a lot of work.

This is a beautiful area – one I shall remember –

We were blessed to have spent time here – but it also was expensive!

Papa’s World – more memories of the past 16 months – living life doing it my way!

Papa Jimmy Buck

In this picture – my friends of the last 36 years for Buck and 40 plus hears for Jimmy!

Jimmy and I worked together and played softball together in the mid to late ’70’s!

In the back ground across the pond on this hole in Magnolia Greens –

sits Buck and Cindy’s new home they built a couple years ago!

I really like this area and would of moved here if we could of found something

like this and in our price range.

Friends and golfing buddies – MEMORIES!

Buck Cindy Dottie

Dottie – Jimmy’s wife and Cindy – Bucks wife – all these years still getting together!

We all moved away from our home town areas.

Yet – at least twice a year we manage to get together –

here we are at Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach!

Speak no evil – see on evil and hear no evil!

In the last 16 months – sometimes we struggled to balance social distancing –

and that was very true with family.

Sitting in our garage while the three little ones sat on a tarp in the lawn at the end of the driveway.

Or visiting them standing outside and little Bode hiding behind his parents peaking out at us!

That broke my heart.

But – we have come a long ways on this – we did stay with family after we sold our house

at the end of June last year!

Family is important and we have been tested twice and so have they!

My little buddy – Bode – who when we stay with them – will come down the stairs to the bottom area where we stay –

PAPA – can I sit on your lap!

This is at 5:45 am. – while I am writing my blog!

He knows I wake up early and down he comes- when we are not here – he sleeps in!

Last week he asked me on a kids message –

he had called me – “PAPA – WHEN WILL WE SEE YOU AGAIN”?

I tear up when he talks to me like that!

When the family Krohn – the three little ones and Marcus and Tammy – came to visit on their Spring Break.

Here we are having lunch after they drove 6 hours – at Crooked Hammock at Barefoot Landing!

They spent all weekend and until Friday of the following week with us!

This made us very happy as they got to see where we are and where we are building our house.

They now know it is but a six hour drive for them to visit!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World-

My blog on memories will continue with my next blog.

Papa’s World – more memories of the past six teen months – living life one day at a time.

Before the Pandemic and while in Florida – met up with very old friends – Lynda and Fred – going back some 45 years!

I knew both before I met Sherry – Freddie and I went to 7th. grade thru 12th. grade.

We met at a place that was half way to where they live in Florida and to where we were staying!

Great time with old friends. MEMORIES!

We traveled before the Pandemic – meeting friends along the way.

And – – we were careful – as were some more friends we met.

Almost seven months after the start of the Pandemic – we met up with Pam and Bob – in Berkeley Springs WV.

Bobby and I go back to grade school – friends for life.

Sports – a few drinks – camping out – running the streets – never anything destructive – just boy hood memories.

By the time this blog posts – Pam and Bob will stop in on there way back to New England.

They have a drive RV towing a car.

We are all safe – testing and vaccinations.( except Sherry who is allergic to the vaccine)

It will be good to once again relive memories – Freddie – Bobbie and I had growing up!

Many memories – friends – family and life in general. The journey living life one day at a time.
John and Nancy – members and friends form our church – Community Lutheran Church in Sterling Va.

Fourteen years we attended services there.

John and Nancy moved to Charleston about a year before we moved.

On our way back from Florida – just before the Pandemic – we stopped in and stayed – regaling in memories.

They gave us a walking tour of Charleston’s waterfront and historic district.

A few months after we moved to Myrtle Beach area – we met halfway in Georgetown S.C.

And – about a month or so ago – they visited us at the condo.

Friends – MEMORIES!

Papa with son in laws Mike and Marcus.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – golfing Magnolia Greens – home course of friends – beautiful!

Sherry and Cindy – they decided to walk the 18 holes – Sherry got a new pull cart!

I actually believe these 27 holes compare to the best in the area including Myrtle Beach!

On this day – the flowers were in full bloom and reminded me of Augusta!

Almost every hole was like this!
A view of the driving range from the outdoor patio of the clubhouse!
Sherry Cindy and Buck – having a beverage on the outdoor patio after 18 holes!
On one of the tee boxes – everything was blooming!

We have played this course many times over the years!

They have called this home for at least twenty years.

Having bought and sold and built here many times.

This is the main reason we came South to this general area.

Our new home will be about 40 minutes away –

so daily golf is available!

Sherry on the patio of their home that overlooks one of the large waterways on the course!
Cindy on the same patio of their home looking in a different direction from Sherry!
Cindy was to the left – Sherry to my right and Buck straight across from me – looking at the course across the water!

This is the second home they have built here – both in this water area and both had like views –

only this one is downsized from the other one.

Buck and I on the tee box about to tee off!

We – Buck and I – did our usual scramble – and we had a record for us – we shot a 39 with a double boogie the last hole!

If you are ever in N.C. just South of Leland and Wilmington – this is a public course – 27 holes – stop in and make a tee time – it will surprise you and you will love it – one of the best around the area!

HEALTH and NUTRITION fruits – vegetables – berries – omegas in a capsule.

Papa’s World – Rivers edge – golfing with friends – we finally beat them!

Cindy and Sherry – one will walk and then change up for the other to drive.

We started off in the rain – but the forecast said it would move on out –

and the sun and warmth would be there!

AND THAT IS JUST WHAT IT DID!

One of the views – we had to cross over here – but it was not a busy road.

Are there Gators here? YES THERE ARE!
Sherry Buck Cindy about to putt!

We played well – Buck and I – enough so that they beat us by one stroke the first nine and we won by three stokes the back nine. Do not be fooled by how close they made it – they are always right down the middle and second shot is either on the green or close to it! They are good when in a scramble!

We bought what is called the first tee card – we all have them and it allows us to play over 32 courses

at reduced rates – all are on the N.C. side of the border – and our new house is right in the middle!

Sherry going for the green on a par three over the marsh.
Cindy going for the green over the marsh.

I did not like this tee box as it was like a practice mat.

The only part of the whole course that they did this on.

You could not put a tee in – only if you found a seam.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World.

It was a fun day – and because it was cart path only –

it took us five hours to play and we did not finish up until 6:00 PM.

But – we finally beat them on the back nine by three strokes and it was hard doing that!

Papa’s World – Spring has Sprung – the Beach got busy – and they are in the water!

Here is our before 9:am. early morning walk – a little more crowed but nothing not expected! Looking South to North Myrtle Beach from where we enter the access to the beach.
From the beach access looking toward Cherry Grove – a few more people – but not a lot!

But – this is the beginning of the week for Spring Breakers –

and we noticed traffic getting heavey.

We have found our way around and avoid the high traffic on rte. 17!

We take the side streets as far as we can – and one side street takes up to where we can shop!

Now – in the afternoon we decided to do a couple hours of a beach day – taking and carrying our chairs to the beach. Here is the same view looking toward North Myrtle Beach – a lot more people and a lot of people in the water. But we still had our own space – no one within thirty feet of us!
Here is the same view in the afternoon looking toward Cherry Grove! And – it will get more crowed as Spring turns into Summer with vacations! We are in the open space and avoid large gatherings which happen mostly toward North Myrtle Beach town center. A lot of young H.S. and college students gather on the beach there in a large group. You just avoid them as they will do what they do regardless!

Being here is still our dream – we will come back often as we like it here –

but also where we are moving too – no traffic – country quiet – we can walk –

and still be in access to the other two beaches!

The beach here is very wide – I have been told it is the widest on the Grand Strand!

Papa’s World – when friends meet up in the cold – bundle up – and enjoy!

Cindy Sherry Papa Buck

It was not planned – but we had weeks and weeks of non stop rain!

So – Sherry made the call – what are you doing to our friends

who now live some 50 miles from us!

Lets get together – you come here for a over night stay –

we will walk the beach if it does not rain!

So – they did – came down and stayed overnight!

Yep – story of our lives now!

We played cards – laughed – and walked.

The rain held off and the Sun came out – but was still cold!

We made the most of it!

Papa and Buck – on the beach – girls were going to walk to Cherry Grove Pier – we would walk back to the condo – pick up the car – and go back and pick them up!

They walked the two miles up to the pier –

we walked the mile back to the condo –

The wind was blowing – but on the beach –

The ladies said the sun kept them warm.

We picked up our car and drove up to the pier –

and got out and met them just as they arrived!

The pier at Cherry Grove – there were surfers in the water!

We walked a short distance up the beach –

Before we decided to get in the car and drive around.

We showed them the canals and cottages.

Stopped at the boat landing – and then returned to the condo!

So ended another great time with friends –

No rain – walking – games and just great fun.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

I respect her – guide when I am able –

She in turn respects my thoughts – cares and understandings.

ADMIRATION AND EQUALITY – two aspects that I have based my life on.

Both of these two are leaders – mother and daughter – SSC and QMND – The Juice Plus Company.

Home based business done over the internet – no inventory – just take a order – submit – everything

else is done by the company – they even collect the payment – 26 years in business- 21 countries. SOLID!

Today we have started building a new home – in Ocean Isle Beach – N.C.

We – one year ago – had no thoughts of doing this – both are in our early ’70’s.

Things happen and change – roll with the flow – relocate – but still only a day away from family.

Our first purchases for our new home.

We have been busy – planning – buying furniture to be delivered – as we had sold all of ours!

We will miss this view – but – we have enjoyed it for nine months! MEMORIES!

Today we continue our journey – in a couple months we will celebrate 39 years of marriage.

Papa’s World – Two new Swans – they just show up!

Taken from our Lanai – they seem to hang out now at our end of the lake!

The three Swans that were here first are gone – so we are told.

Seems the Male chased one and in doing so – at another pond –

It somehow broke it’s neck!

Then they found one that had been bitten by a snake!

The third – we just do not know and we were told this by a couple who live here!

These two were reintroduced by Wildlife management

we were also told!

The Swans come and go – but lately have been staying here.

I have watched them fly in and land –

right across the view we have on the fourth floor!

I have also watched them take off –

and fly down to the other end of the small lake.

It is a very loud noise as they beat their wings and take off!

I watch them sleep on the banks during the day in the sunshine.

And – in the moon light at night see two white shapes floating just below us!

There are other groups of water fowl

Different types of Ducks – Geese –

Birds from the Ocean a half mile away!

The view everyday from our Lanai!

But – I love the Swans the most!

PAPA’S WORLD: THE SWANS HAVE RETURNED livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – another beautiful sunrise and then a cool day of golf!

Waking up to this every morning – at the end of June – nine months of this – memories for a lifetime!
Golfing with our close friends at a golf course way out in the country of N.C.

We awoke to a beautiful sunrise – a bit chiily –

But the forecast called for low 50’s but Sunny!

It makes a big difference with hardly any wind!

As the Sun continues to rise – clouds form but are suppose to clear away!

I have come to accept here in S.C. – that the day changes dramatically

the higher the Sun gets in the sky!

So – you prepare for the day – getting a mental image in your mind

dress in layers – drink your coffee or tea

and know that the day – will turn out okay!

Another painted canvas by nature!

So it goes – sunrise – sunshine – cool but no wind – warmth.

A fine day to be alive and a fine day to golf with friends!

Papa’s World – ringing in the New Year – Friends and golf – catch phrase!

Cindy Sherry Dottie

Once again we celebrated a new year with friends.

Making sure we all were social distancing

before we met up – and the game was on!

THE GAME – golf – four strokes on the highest handicapped holes per side for the ladies.

Jim and I play from the yellows – Buck and ladies from the reds.

Front nine – with the handicap – 38 – 39 ladies! Par 36.

Jim and Buck

The second nine – 39 to 41 – guys! par 36.

When they are on – they are tough to beat – always down the middle.

Sherry – par three drive – putt for birdie – they all missed the putt! But – you can see – they are tough to beat!
The group of us have been friends for years and years – playing golf is part of that friendship.
Buck Papa Jim – getting ready to tee off.

The second day – same rules – front nine – 39 to 41 – guys!

Different course – and this was a day after playing a game called CATCH PHRASE!

Now – we just not seem to win at this! LOL!

Or the card game which Cindy overtook me on the last hand! LOL

Cindy practice swings before teeing it up!

The second nine – 40 to 44 – guys!

Finally – we were able to beat them after 18 holes the second day –

it had rained all night – course was so wet – you had to have a ball retriever

for the middle of the fairway!

Cindy – getting ready to line up the shot!

Thank you fro reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – My blog site – 362 followers – from around the World – awesome!

Write happy thoughts!

Write about family & friends!

Write about each day in my life that I live!

You see my friends – in 2013 I suffered a heart attack!

Called ” A WIDOW MAKER” I should not be here!

http://www.sf.juiceplus.com MY WHY!

It is with in mind – I record our lives one day at a time –

hence my blog: livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

In a little over one year – thanks to my wife Sherry –

I now have a following of 362 plus followers!

Of which I only know four of them!

The rest are from all over the USA and the WORLD!

Screen shot on a normal day – I never though this would happen – but I guess projecting good thoughts – happy family life and adventures of two 70 plus year old’s must appeal to people!
Sherry and Papa – (Tom) living our life one day at a time. Each day I am alive is a blessing! I do not take it for granted.

Sherry is the driving force behind my blog –

” YOU HAVE TO WRITE AND PUT IT SOMEWHERE – A PLACE WE CAN FIND – WHEN YOU ARE GONE”

That is the reality and I am okay with it!

I write for family – I write to record for future generations so they know who I was!

Each day I open the site – answer the comments and push on!

I include lots of pictures – they all tell a story.

Each day I start out not knowing what I will write about

I see a picture I have taken – a event we did – or where a day has taken us.

Then – I start – so far I have scheduled a month ahead in stories –

That way – is we are going someplace – all I have to do is share it to face book!

On here – it is automatically scheduled!

My hope and desire is to bring inner peace to those that read this – and to see – when adversity hits home – when death knocks on your door – there is a life beyond and each day is a blessing – one that had it gone the other way – well – I am happy it didn’t – and that is going to be my legacy – living life doing it my way – blog!

Papa’s World – Returning home for Christmas and family time.

After two and one half months –

we journeyed back to our home base in NVA!

We wanted to spend the Holiday with the kids of both families.

And – we took the Covid19 test and were negative!

Our plan was to stay for three weeks and then come back to the Condo

at Ocean Keyes in North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

Papa Maddy Bode Ella Sherry Taylor Sarah Cassidy – our six grand kids whom all wanted us back for Christmas!

“All I want for Christmas is you grandma” says Sarah!

Our time there was both long and short –

long in that it was cold and I do not do cold very well!

We had their first snow – ice and wind for the year.

Short in that it went very fast and we miss them all ready!

A visit to a winery in the snow with a log campfire! BLEU FROG!!!!

We stayed back and forth until our family in Lake Holiday had to go into quarantine

due to coming in contact with a neighbor just by talking outdoors with her.

So – they were able to get the negative tests back and we went up Christmas Eve

to spend the night with them!

So – we got to spend quality time with both families

and then we all had dinner together.

MorMor Bode Taylor Cassidy Tammy

While the weather was cold – we did manage to stay inside – play games

put puzzles together – good dinners and the little ones loved it!

We made the most of the time together

We – had family time

We spent time together before we were to leave

and head back South!

We even got to watch and cheer on the Buffalo Bills football team!

A big part of our sports life before we moved TO NVA!

It was cold – there was snow – ice and wind.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Have a blessed New Year!

Papa’s World – Lasting Friendships – year blessed – all during a pandemic.

We spend time with family and friends – here are our oldest friends.

This is a stressful time this COVID!

But – we practice social distancing and quarantine – and test!

We make plans and also are sure of the above.

2020 brings a lot of smiles also.

Buck Cindy Dottie – speak no evil – see no evil and hear no evil!

Being with friends is special – you laugh – you talk – and you share sorrows.

Family is important to us all.

You SEE on Zooms –

You TALK on phones

You HEAR on both

You connect whenever you can and try to make plans.

Sometimes – COVID interferes

But you move on – test and return.

You greet each day with renewed hope that this will pass on – only to find it won’t!
Cindy Dottie Sherry

When it does become possible – you make the most of it!

2020 still has its fun times.

2020 – well – you make the most of it when you can!

You watch a little bit of the BUFFALO BILLS!

We all are from BILLS territory

we all were there for the run of FOUR SUPER BOWLS in a row!

And now – as we all moved South –

We once again are watching them!

Keeps us in touch!
We now are playing Pickle Ball and Golf and card games!

We try to play as much golf as we can now that we are in the South!

Our friends – Buck and Cindy are 45 miles away

so we can meet up halfway and play!

Cindy Papa Sherry Buck

Once a week since we have moved down here.

There are over 100 courses to select from!

Sherry and Cindy!

LASTING FRIENDSHIPS – YEAR BLESSED – ALL DURING A PANDEMIC!

For years since we came South – we try at least get together every four to six months!

We all lived close to one another back in NWPA and WNY!

Cindy Jim Buck Dottie Sherry Papa

We now all play golf together after a couple years ago Dottie decided to try it out.

Walking the beach at North Myrtle Beach on our last get together.

Now we also play cards – sip a beer – and listen to and sing to music!

We have always had a great time – we travel – explore new places

We play gals vs guys in golf and the gals are good!

This last time we won by I think 2 strokes!

Papa’s World – One of the many days in our life – living one day at a time!

A dose of this – a spoon of that – a sip of this – GRATITUDE!

In our life together – for going on almost 40 years –

we do everything together – we are best friends –

if no one is around – we still go on adventures together!

On our daily walk – we sometimes see the three swans!

Our days are almost never planned – unless there are errands to run –

friends to meet to golf –

but other than that – we explore!

We are taking in everything we can until our new house is built!

We also are exploring the area where we will live –

And it is nothing to drive a hour or so to see something we have never seen!

The beach at North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

We walk almost three miles a day –

we did back in NVA until it got cold!

But – here – the sun warms you up even though it is in the high 40’s!

Walking the beach is part of that three mile walk every day!

6/10 th of a mile and we are standing looking at the above!

A day in our life – we live each day as it comes!

Always active – even making a garbage trip to the dumpster a walk!

We also can walk the half mile to Walmart if we choose.

Living life to the plus one day at a time.

ONE OF THE MANY DAYS IN OUR LIFE – LIVING LIFE ONE DAY AT A TIME!

MY SITE: livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – living life one day at a time- in Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach SC

When you live one day at a time – you count your blessings each day!
The dawning of each day brings new adventures – one day at a time.

Life to me is seeing the beauty in what is around you –

Seeing the history and enjoying the minute –

Being grateful that you have been able to see that moment in time.

Sometimes this may happen – but the majority time – you do and remember – living life to its fullest!
In Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach – S.C. – we have found that life.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World
