Papa’s World – life – living life – doing it my way!

Family – my why!

Living life doing it my way – became my blog site!

Family became my WHY

and FRIENDS became my reason – to meet my FAMILY!

However – I never stay in bed unless I am ill which is not often!

I think I have always been living life my own way

I am a watcher – listener – observing what is around me.

I have my opinions – unless asked – I keep them to myself.

I am a independent – I do not like party’s

I do not need to adhere to a agenda

I think for myself.

Hence – my blog livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

I do not choose one news outlet over another

I can see for myself – and think things through.

I listen to people talk – I see actions – I select what I think is the truth.

Both sides – and the middle.

My family – church – friends are important to me.

Not all of the above think as I do.

I respect that.

My blog is born of which I have described.

But – mostly to put down memories

in pictures and words.

PAPA & MORMOR

So that the generations now and those to come

have a place to go back and see just who we are.

Therefore my blog is born

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – laughter – smiling – sharing good vibes

Many of us out here – struggle with food and added weight –

going on diets – making pledges and looking in the mirror

Well – at least I found one thing on me that fits every year!

Good day everyone – when I started writing –

first on face book and now this blog

livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

I said I would write smiles – laughter – family – friends

and adventures and good thoughts.

I have managed to do it most of the time regardless

of the goings on in the World.

I am a positive person – thinking that most things work themselves out

or in a 24 hour time are forgotten and moved on!

I take after my Mom –

one fellow co-worker after I told them about my mother

said “Now I know where you got the calmness and feisty

attitude from!”

I have always had a quiet sense of humor –

but when around close friends

my inner self comes out!

A few beers and a micro phone

Well – have you ever heard a

“OLD LOVE SICK COON HOUND YOWL”!

Well – that would be me!

Along with the humor and good times

family is important to me and my life.

I have two grown sons

and they live in NWPA

I do not get to see them enough since we moved to NVA

But – they have made me a proud dad.

The oldest can build house – beginning to end

by himself if he had too!

The youngest runs his own energy – insulation company

mainly for the State and power companies.

And I also have two grandsons who live across the country.

Close to us are the grand daughters and grandson

who live nearby.

FAMILY is a important part of my blog. MEMORIES!

My wife – both of us have our own thoughts on love –

country – family and social society.

Each in our own way –

but we both understand each other

and support each other

guarding each others back.

That is what love is to me.

My wife was the first to encourage me to write

as she was the first to encourage me to join face book.

She told me I had to put these writings – memories in a safe place

and she told me that I had too many friends and people

asking her on face book how I was & saying hello.

I am glad I listened – now I have all these friends

and blog posts – that can be read by future generations!

That is why my blog exists – my writings preserved

My memories of my life for our kids to read and see in pictures.

To date I have 259 members to my blog site.

Everytime I blog – they get a email

and what is so great about this

is that it is FREE to subscribe!

You won’t get packages or charges just a email

Papa’s World – skies – sunset – living life – doing it my way.

Living life doing it my way is the theme to my everyday Blog!

As the above quotes –

LIVE ANYWAY – I take my days one at a time.

I came close to dying when I had my heart attack

A WIDOW MAKER they told me!

I looked at life different after that!

I cherish each sunrise and each sunset!

BE HONEST ANYWAY –

I guess this is the main reason I have no political party.

And I believe this has followed me my entire life.

It is hard to find honesty – and there are times I have not been.

But – my belief in God and forgiveness

Is the way I lead my life – thanks to my wife.

LOVE ANYWAY –

I try to follow this and it is hard to do.

I have many friends –

and I had to unfollow them on social media.

Not unfriend them

but the mean – unproven things were just too much for me.

But – I still LOVE them!

PLAY FAIR ANYWAY-

In games – life and living

I take this to heart

To me – it is how you play

not how you win.

I have always been that way –

I am competitive – but also fair.

If I lose – I lose

and come back again!

livinglifedoingitmyway.blog is MY SITE

Life comes at you – how you handle it – says a lot about you.

My hope in this blog – is that it helps someone out there

that you can be loved – fair – honest and live anyway!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – I write a blog – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa and Sherry

My inspiration to write-

“YOU HAVE TO PUT THESE SOMEWHERE THAT WE CAN FIND THEM”!

Thus was born my blog.

And as of today – around 340 blogs are stored there!

THIS IS MY WHY!

I have always wanted to write – even though I can not spell!

And I struggle with English Comp.

But – I find just putting my thoughts into words

and posting pictures – a way for future generations

to read and see what our life was like.

I wish my parents had been able to do this.

I write about family – journeys – friends –

past memories from childhood ( before they are lost forever)

about daily happenings – a diary of sorts.

My late brother Roger and Sherry

He was also my friend – close – and my boyhood hero.

The person in my life I love the most.

We have been together for over 39 years – married 38 years.

Writing a bolg is simple and easy for me.

I love to tell the story.

Last year we hosted the movie and – TV and stage star Ronny Cox

best known for the movie Deliverance.

His songs are stories – some made up – other true

and some a little bit of both.

He told me ” I AM A STORY TELLER”!

And so am I!

Papas World – bringing a smile and good thought every day – Papas World.

A long time ago – when my wife first asked me to join social media

because all my friends would ask her about me

on her posts and her face book home page

“How is Tom” or “What is Tom doing” ?

She told me there were so many that I should be the one answering!

And it went back to my childhood friends –

so she hooked me up with my own home page

and I started accumulating friends – 609 today!

I decided a long time ago – I would follow three rules

as much as I could!

One – post something to make you smile!

Everyday I post ” My BIG smile for the day”

And ” Laughter is the best medicine”!

Two – “My GOOD thought for the day”

Three – “My smile and Good thought for the day”!

And my last one –

Fourth – “No Politics” which is the hardest to do as I grit my teeth!

So – today – I have 609 face book friends

and 249 subscribers on my blog site

of which only THREE I know!

And both my friends and subscribers are world wide.

When I started in 2012 I had no idea –

and a little over a year ago I started my blog site

livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

on advice from my wife and her friend.

“Tom – you write your memories – and we can not find them”!

” You need to store them for the kids to read”!!


So – here I am today – writing each day – over 300 blogs stored –

pictures – places and events – 246 subscribers whom I do not know-

following me – face book friends commenting every day.

From all over the World –

Thank you to my wife and her friend

I always wanted to write a book

Now I have and it is stored away.

For the next generation to read

Welcome to Papa’s World

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY

AND ME!

livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papas World – a little bit of this and that!

Healthy eating – healthy living – healthy lives –

That is what we try to do each and every day!

NOT EASY by a long stretch!

But then neither is life.

You can only try once – and try to make it count!

Just kidding but found it amusing!

Giving and taking –

talking and listening –

another life’s relationships

Sometimes it works

sometimes it doesn’t

But it is well worth the effort!

Yes we do – and little ones as well!

We all come in different shapes and sizes –

Different levels of tone –

some we can tune out

others we tune into

But – what is incredible is understanding

all we have to do is listen – listen – listen

instead we do not hear

and when it becomes silence

then we wish that once again we hear them.

Our loved ones are always in our memories – even their voices.

Life has changed ever so much during my years here.

From plastic records – to radio –

8 track and cassettes

To disks

Now wireless and tic tok

rver changing – going forward

And the beat goes on –

The music plays in your minds

We all march to its beat in different ways.

Life is full of music and I love it!

Welcome to Papa’s World – thanks for reading

Papas World – another day – another walk – another blog!

We walk – and walk and walk.

71 years old – still walking – social distancing – getting exercise.

Between 2 and 3 .20 miles a day –

depending on weather – walking – not running

tried that and ended up hurting my legs

shins and hips!

I run too hard Sherry says.

I LITERALLY POUND THE PAVEMENT!

My focus is movement –

I will have 1000 to 2000 every morning

before my wife gets up!

I am always up by 5 am.

I move around in the mornings

I sit and write – but constantly get up –

doing things – dusting the floors –

I clean all the time – put away dishes

unload the dish washer – nothing with noise

just being busy keeps me moving.

My heart doctor said to me ” MOVE”

and I get between 8000 and 11,000 steps each day

when the weather permits walking outside!

I am a fair weather walker – I do not like to walk in the cold.

Since I had heart problems and a operation

I get really cold easily.

That is the main reason I seek out warmer weather

in the Winter time!

The self sheltering has been not easy as we miss our families.

But – we have been walking – riding bikes –

putting puzzles together ( 8 )

and reading books – I love to read –

and I have been blogging each and every day.

Walking – no hair cut – sunshine – sheltering!

Just another blog and another day in my life.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papas World – Google – Yahoo – AOL – Facebook – OH MY!

Now – I am not this bad – my face book time is first thing in the morning

Sipping my coffee – and then I post my Blog for the day!

I then go to my home page

and MY criteria is to post something funny – something good

something to make you smile and or laugh

and a combination of all the above.

Once I have gone through all that – I will read comments or posts

and then it is time for me to open my mail and start deleting!

For face book I am done for the day! About 45 minutes worth!

The only thing I use GOOGLE for is to bring up YAHOO!

Where if I want to KNOW anything – I search for it!

My wife – Sherry – uses GOOGLE!

For whatever reason – I have always used YAHOO!

What I do not do is repost unproven statements –

I find – unless they are fact checked by me

I am not going to help them destroy our nation.

For that is what they are designed for – to divide and conquer.

I also UN FOLLOW – NOT UNFRIEND

That way we can still communicate

but I do not have to SEE all the negative – hurtful posts!

I also do not forward crazy things

such as you will get $$$$ if you forward this to TEN PEOPLE!

These are designed to get people into your friends lists

and then HACK THEM!

IT IS A SCAM!

There – I said it – I look for positives not negatives.

The reason for my blogs is to tell stories – memories –

about me – my family – friends – and travels

and everyday life.

A journal so to speak – somewhere – after I am gone –

a place to come to and read of my thoughts – ideas and my memories.

Before I am unable to remember and for my family!

I want to thank you for reading

Papa’s World – at 70 – feeding my brain – keeping memory

What I take every day – double dose – Omega’s by Juice Plus

A couple years ago – The Juice Plus Company introduced a new product.

” The Omega Blend + ” OMEGA’S 3 – 5- 6 – 7 – 9 .

I turn 70 years old in a couple days – and – I am doing what I can to retain memory – both short term and long term. I do not like the ” FISH TASTE” of Omega’s on the market. So when this came out – I was delighted to find out that first – there is no fish taste or after taste , and the win – win for me is it is made out of ALGAE – which is where the fish get the omega from !

I am strict on the fish I eat – no farm raised and only Salmon from North Atlantic . Mercury is a major concern for me – so ALGAE – ( they have their own Algae farms ) was the selling point !

The Omega’s 3 – 5 – 6 – 7 – 9 – Orange flavor!

Today – I feel that I am doing the most I can – writing this blog keeps my mind sharp

( after all – I am not a TECHIE – so remembering is essential in Blogging )

If you would like more information – yes my wife is a distributor and a guiding force in my life being a certified health coach – you can contact through email at her site : http://www.sf.juiceplus.com and also search the site for research – video’s and information !!!!

I hope this helps you out – I know it has helped me and by the way – the capsules do dissolve after taking them – but if you do not like swallowing capsules – you can open and sip the fluid which to me tastes like a orange creamsicle !

FEEDING MY BRAIN – KEEPING MEMORY
