Years ago we made a trip to Washinton, D.C. with a group of friends from our church – Community Lutheran Church in Sterling, Va. to see Les Miserables on stage.
What a performance and good times with friends. MEMORIES!
Before Bode came along – and her mother was staying with us – a trip to Sweet Frog in Brambleton Town Center with FIVE granddaughters and an afternoon treat.
Now – Maddy is a senior in college and Ella a sophomore in college.
Sarah is a Sophomore in H.S. and the twins are twelve years old! MEMORIES!
A random thought – SMILE!
Friends – Sherry – Cindy – Dottie – when friends come together – we sing! MEMORIES!
Me in PINK SHORTS – Playing Volleyball in our Corporate Cup competition – we had about 40 members on the team in track and field and other sporting events.and competed against the other industries in the area. MEMORIES! Sherry on the left in the white top – we played volleyball in a league for years before we retired and took up golfing!
MEMORIES – a long ago times in the past – thanks for reading Papa’s World. HGD!

The six of us have been friends for about forty-plus years. Living as neighbors to Cindy and Buck and Jim and Dottie grew up in the same little town in NWPA called Eldred in the Alleghany mountains as I did.
Jim – Sherry and I all worked for Dal-Tile – (American Olean Tile) in Olean, N.Y.
And of course, being and working in WNY – we all were Buffalo Bills fans – and we watch them whenever we can by going to
Buffalo Bills sports bars in our areas.
Cindy and Buck live 30 miles from us and we get together often to play a round of golf – have dinner and just enjoy our friendships.
Papa – Dottie – Cindy – Sherry – Buck and Jim – Dottie and Jim live in Va. Beach and in the coming years will build on a piece of property in Northern North Carolina.
They will be about three-plus hours from us when they retire.
Sherry – Cindy – Dottie – Forty-plus years of being friends. When we all get together – it comes down to Gals vs. Guys in a golf scramble.
The last time we gave them two strokes – they missed a four-foot putt on the last hole for the WIN!
So we tied 37 to 37!
Sherry and Cindy – both into walking miles and miles – I try to keep up!

Playing golf at Magnolia Greens in Leland, N.C. where Buck and Cindy live. Living life one day at a time!
Sherry – Sunset Beach, N.C. PAPA’S WORLD – HAPPY TIMES in NORTH CAROLINA WITH FRIENDS!
The four couples have been friends going on 35 years and some over 40 years.
We try to get together at least once or twice a year –
made more difficult because some still live in WNY and another couple in Va. Beach.
While Sherry and myself live 32 miles from the McBrides now.
We all rented a pontoon boat for four hours to cruise up and down the ICW from OIB – to Holden Beach and back to Sunset Beach – where we saw a lone Dolphin for over 15 minutes diving for food in 8 feet of water.
It was really busy being labor day weekend – countless boats going both ways and creating waves!
To be continued with more pictures of the ICW and friends.
