Papa’s World – #livinglifetotheplus

What do you do with your strawberry plants in the Fall from the TOWER GARDEN ?

Every year – and we have been growing in the Tower Garden ‘ s for seven years – we have had strawberry plants left over – so – instead of throwing them away – I just took them out and stuck them in the ground !

We have this area right beside the house where my back flow is . And now – each year – these plants come back and thrive there ! Last year – I picked 10 to 14 quarts of sweet strawberries – and they spread.

This area was dug up two years ago to install our irrigation system and you can see where they put in the back flow. So – in two years time – they have spread and filled the area back in again.

Three cousins – we promote #livinglifetotheplus to our families.

The concept of healthy eating – is that we GROW as much as we can – for ourselves. The two smaller ones – Cassidy and Taylor – will come over – and when the strawberries are nice and red and ripe – will sit out there and pick and eat them – teaching them you can eat from the Earth and not always from the store. Taylor asked me the other day ” ARE THE STRAWBERRIES READY YET PAPA ? “

As we enter the setting Sun of our years


Our wish – and the WHY we do all this – is to install for Generations to come the value of eating healthy – eliminating process foods – cutting back on sweets and dairy ( the Myth of dairy ) – Gluten – and eating more fruits and vegetables – passing this onto the grand kids of today and hoping that they in turn pass it onto their children.

We named our team – TEAM GENERATIONS


Life to us is changing habits – instilling new ones in the kids – and inhance memories of growing up with PAPA & MORMOR as the younger ones callus or Grandma and Grandpa as the older ones call us.

Memories are formed at young age – as in Taylor just saying the other day – she is 8 years old. Her and her parents and sister lived with us for one year while they awaited there new home being made ready. Sherry and I were having a conversation – about in the future moving South.

She spoke up from her homework ( we pick them up from school ) and said ” MORMOR & PAPA – you can’t move -I have too many memories here” ! And then went on to tell how she remembers her bedroom and how they shared it together – her mother and fathers room and the front room where they had their doll house. They were only two and one half when they lived here.

Last Summer – Outer Banks Beach

So memories play a big part of our lives – and grand kids even bigger. Instilling memories of us and health is the legacy we want to have – one that enriches their lives and that of their children. That memory has led to our motto #livinglifetotheplus and our own health and lifestyle. This in turn led to the concept of TEAM GENERATIONS and the impact that since we started has on hundreds of families just like us.

If you want to find out how – why and more – follow us on this blog – visit the web site http://www.sf.juiceplus.com – I hope this helps explain – and if you TOWER GARDEN – just remember -those STRAWBERRIES can and do survive the Winter – just plant them and watch them spread.

Papa’s World – retired – being healthy – a day in my life

What I do in a day of my life

I worked 47 1/2 years for the same company – prior to that – I started working when I was going into my Junior year of H.S.

I decided when I retired – almost 50 years of working – was enough !

Me – Sherry – Steve- Elaine – Cindy & Buck

It was important to maintain our friendships – stay in touch – here are four of our closest friends.

Buck and I – NWPA – golfing vacation

It was important for me to stay active and play golf.

Our six grand children – 5 grand daughters and then Bode .

Family is very important to me , when we moved to NVA – Sherry’s daughters followed us there . My two sons stayed in NWPA – we see them when we visit. In the 20 years – the Va.family has grown – and being there – we see them often if not daily. My family I grew up with is almost gone – I have a niece – great niece’s – brother’s daughter – great – great niece and 2 great – great nephews – everyone else including uncles -aunts are gone.

We have a little side business – actually it provides the income to stay where we are.

We live in a very expensive part of the country – in fact – this county has the highest income per household in the country. We moved here 20 years ago for work and then Sherry retired almost 7 years ago – and went full time into that business of health and nutrition. I followed one year later – and – it has been the income that has provided us the time to stay where we are.

North Shore – Oahu

We travel – we play golf – we see the country – but we also maintain a healthy lifestyle – eating right – and continue to inspire people to do the same – all the while being paid to do it !

You have to remember – retirement means Social Security – if you have a pension plan – 401 K – and whatever else you have saved. PLAN ” B ” – if you want to maintain – you have to have a plan. Ours – we planned 13 years ago and have stayed the course.

The three amigo’s for over 38 years.

Family life – friends – and maintaining health are important for us. All three – with church and God – are our mainstays of life. Giving – helping – praying and attending church – go hand in hand with our life. But – having fun – seeing friends – and watching the family grow – is to me what retirement is all about.

Cindy and Sherry

My wife is extraordinary – a natural born leader – a certified health coach – along as being a true friend to many. She is my crutch – the one I follow on health and nutrition and the reason I am still alive today.

A typical dinner meal for me

Eating healthy – sticking to the plan – and taking my nutrition supplement – and following what she says and does are my secrets to life.

The TOWER GARDEN – we grow inside and outside – year round.

We grow our own produce – April through October outside with two Tower Gardens – anything that does not grow on a tree! And then as you see above – we grow inside our garage November through March. Always fresh and no pesticides – we know what we are eating and growing.

Team Generations

Our team has grown over the years – conference time is twice a year – all over the Country – as is the team – simply sharing by word of mouth. Families – children – helping each other – maintain that healthy life style.

Sherry -Debby ( QMND – soon to be NMD )

In October we will travel to Austin Texas – where we are planning to watch our daughter Debby be promoted to National Marketing Director for the Juice Plus Company – when she will make a full time income she could not of made in the Corporate World ! With extremely generous benefits – and help for college tuition for all three of her children.

Our goal of maintaining our lifestyle in retirement with a PLAN ” B” has been met and continues – growing year by year.

We would love to share it with you – it is not easy – life isn’t easy either – but you make it what you want it to be.

It is up to you – we supply the help – the guidance – we are there.

http://www.sf.juiceplus.com is where you contact Sherry – and look at all the different video’s – both on the health and business.

I am writing this blog today – my only regret is that SOMEONE out there did not share it with us 25 years ago – I wish they had – but we found it 13 years ago and our own PLAN” B” has worked.

Thank you for reading – and remember #livinglifetotheplus is real –

Papa’s World – retirement – loving life to the plus doing it my way.

Papa’s World – going on another road trip – friends

One of our adventures- Sherry Fitzsimmons – Cindy North McBride – William McBride and Tom Fitzsimmons on the inter coastal water way off North Carolina.


For the last 12 years – we have taken trips together – every other year in most cases.

We have been to Spain – Gibraltar – Morocco – we have toured N.H. – Mass. and Maine. We have been to the Niagara Falls , Ontario Canada wine region – tasting wine and brews !

We have revisited our roots back in NWPA and SWNY – playing a week of golf on the courses we played years and years ago. You see – we were neighbors and friends 37 years ago ! Then they moved South to N.C. and later we transferred South to NVA – all the while staying in close contact – visiting on vacations.

On Turtle Bay Oahu

We have visited Oahu together- covering the whole island in 10 days.

Playing golf in the mountains close to where they filmed Jurassic Park. We have stayed at their house in N.C. and played the courses around them.

Buck ( William ) and Tom riding the inter
coastal water way.

We are planing and talking future trips – ( IRELAND ) back to our ancestors. Maybe a trip to Nashville – and my thoughts on Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg Tenn. with a log cabin in the mountains !

Buck and Cindy in Oahu .

Now – we have committed to a trip out West – the far West as in Northern California – a drive and stay trip for 7 or 8 days ! Making our list pf places to see and when we get together – piecing all the information down – getting excited !

On the beach in North Shore Oahu.


We have now been retired for 7 years ( Sherry ) 6 years me. Sherry had a sales job ( outside ) – all of NVA – for the company she worked for for 32 years. The traffic and day to day stress was more than enough – so she started a part time job through The Juice Plus Company. When it grew – she decided at which point it was large enough to retire. At age 63 – she did it !

Today – we are able to both be retired – and will be celebrating – in the next two months – our birthdays – the big 70 !!!!

Back in NWPA- Sherry’s home – the Knizua via duct – bridge.


Red woods – Napa valley – Reno – Lake Tahoe – Sequoia’s – San Francisco – Alcatraz – Yosemite – Sonoma – Berkley – Glamping –

Just some of the things on our list – we shall see and compare. Close friends through all these years – still trying to get our other close friends to take a trip with us.

At Vanish Brewery near our home in NVA – October fest !

Where ever we go – when ever we go – there are laughs – there are adventures and sometimes golf ( we give no strokes as they are too good )

Sherry and Cindy – always something with their phones!

These two will always laugh and make us laugh – that is why we get along so well. Later this Summer – another road trip – to Northern California. A trip worth waiting for – another adventure in the making.

Stay tuned – waiting – excited – and NO STROKES – they should give us strokes! LOL

Papa’s World – LITTLE ENTREPRENEUR ‘ S !!!

For the last two days – the twins –

Taylor & Cassidy –

have made bracelets –

out of those small multi – colored rubber bands.

GOOD MORNING

They have set up their stand in our front sidewalk and also their own home.

Bode – Cassidy – Taylor

And the youngest – four year old Bode – holds up a sign –

As each car passes by –

or anyone walking –

and yells out –

” GET YOUR BRACELETS – ONLY ONE DOLLAR EACH “

So far – Cassidy $11.00 Taylor $13.00

& Bode $2.00 !!!

In front of our house
Watching and waiting for cars
The tree Entrepreneur’s

They are usually out there for a hour

and then it is –

” Can we go to the play ground ” ?

Off to the play ground with MorMor & me.

Of course – we walk –

got to get those steps in –

And the entire walk is them singing and dancing to songs –

They have learned this week in Vacation Bible School !

Dancing

Funny – as Bode can not read yet –

but he knows all the words to each song !

Rest time – at the Zip line

It was a very nice day –

78 degrees – a slight breeze –

a good day for the play ground & the Zip line in the park !

BODE

Finished up on the Tire swing –

but first there was a surprise –

MOR – MOR HAS A FRIEND

On our walk over from the shade –

I saw this on Sherry’s shoulder !

It had landed and at first look –

I thought it had TWO BIG EYES –

But – you can see the little eyes –

Of course there were shrieks of OOOHHHH – AAAWWWW

EEEEEEKKKKKKK – stay away – get it off –

It was only a beetle

and it fell off and hit the ground –

Where it closed itself up –

Time to wrap it up and take them home !

OUR FRONT PORCH

It was a long day for Sherry

as she is helping out at Vacation Bible School –

The shade of the front porch –

welcome home –

a day well done –

BUT WAIT –

a message from their father

and a picture !

The Three Entrepreneur ‘s

Once again they had set up shop –

Each with their OWN BUSINESS

as they liked to say –

And the little PITCH MAN –

Holding the sign –

“GET YOUR BRACELETS – ONLY ONE DOLLAR “

I think he should get a commission –

That will be a whole new discussion for another day –

And it now is raining out –

Could be a RAIN DAY –

They have library books to read –

PAPA & MOR MOR
