Papa’s World – The arrival of the “LITTLE ONES”

Sherry on arrival at Myrtle Beach International Airport with Cassidy – Bode and Taylor.

Sherry flew back to NVA to watch the twins in a play and because both parents work – instead of them paying

for a couple weeks at summer camp –

they bought plane tickets instead and she flew back with them for me to pick up!

The parents were coming down the following week anyways for a in law family vacation about a hour South of us.

We spent the day yesterday with them – in the sun and the warm water of the ocean.

They were so excited and we planned a full week with them. A few dust ups as childeren will have –

But once we seperated the two –

Cassidy and Bode – it was fine.


Taylor – who is only ten years old – will be taller than her MorMor ( Sherry ) who is 5’9″.

They were so excited to do a number of things – being a gradparent can be exhausting! LOL
After seeing the POWER BOAT ride and wanting to go right away – the little guy got nervous!

I had purchased the tickets for he and I – and while standing in line he said to me –

“Papa – can we get a refund”?

“No” I said.

“PAPA – I am scared – will you hold onto me”?

OF COUSE and I did and he loved it – wanting to go again!

About to start out – Bode and I in the back seat – where it seemed all the water came in and on top of us!

I will continue in part two the next blog – “THE ARRIVAL OF THE LITTLE ONES”!

BOARDWALK AT THE BEACH and ON THE BEACH – Ocean Isle Beach – N.C.

PAPA’S WORLD : livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – Part FOURof new home pictures in Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach – N.C.

A look from the front hallway into the vaulted ceiling living room – to the sunroom and beyond to the open patio.

We wanted open living – being able to see all who are visiting!

And – we wanted LIGHT – FILLED rooms!

Here is the aforementioned rooms along with parts of the kitchen and breakfast nook!

Beyond the breakfast nook is the covered – screened in lanai.

I spend a lot of time out there with the ceiling fan going!

The Kitchen – not real big but comfortable for the two of us to work the same time in!

Seating for four at the island and seating for six at the table with out the extra leaf!

Vaulted ceilings give a feeling of being open and large.

We wanted family to be able to visit – so in the next picture is the Sunroom – with a queen sized pull out sofa!

This makes into a QUEEN BED!

And we wanted the light to come in from outside!

The patio is directly behind these windows and to the left is the lanai!

The screened in Lanai!
Looking out of the lanai to the patio – the tree line is protected and will not be cut down!
This hutch was hand made by Sherry’s father Bill before he passed away.

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 – front porch sitting – sunrises and early morning coffee – we made it!

The view I have each morning when sitting on our new front porch!
And in the evening – we have the view to the West of sunsets!

As you can also see – we are in the middle of construction of new houses – we are the second to close –

but we have been through this twice before – and the values have already gone up!

This is our third build – in the last 22 years!

Moving South – first to the NVA area – outside of Washington DC – and buying and selling three times –

With twice building from ground up –

has led us here – in Ocean Isle Beach – Cameron Woods – and sitting on our front porch.

Our new house and most likely the last one!

We have done major landscaping since this picture was taken – removing the pine straw and replacing it with the black mulch – putting in white – gray stones around the trees in the front yard and large rocks around the lanai.

Today it looks like this – removed some bushes and put in the mulch!

We have just a few more ideas to formulate – changing a few things and we will be settled!

Another sunrise from the front porch.

Sitting on the front porch – sunrises and early morning coffee – this is PAPA’S WORLD!

Papa’s World – after moving into the new home – our first official walk on the beach!

Ocean Isle Beach – N.C. the first time to walk here after moving in!

The beach is but 4.5 miles away – shorter if you are a crow!

We live in Cameron Woods – part of Ocean Ridge but across the main highway from it.

We are on the mainland – three miles to the causeway over the ICW!

We actually have a choice of two beaches – for Sunset beach is two miles futher in the opposite direction South!

And if we want to travel – we are 16 miles back to North Myrtle Neach where we have lived the past nine months!

The beach here is different – the sand a darker shade – not as flat and the waves seem to be rougher !

The beach also is not as wide as NMB or as many people!

People surf and ride the waves more here.

The water is very warm just like NMB!

And we are finding our way around!

There are music concerts throughout the Summer and into October on Friday nights!

Getting there is a major problem as we tried to attend the free concert and got stuck in a three mile

traffic jam trying to get across the causeway!

So – we truned around and did not go!

We are learning – do not go at the last moment – go early – walk the beach – have dinner and then get the chairs out and pick a space to chill and wait for the music to start!

Both beaches have these concerts on different nights as does NMB!

Right across the street form our home – Ocean Ridge – such beautiful skies here.

Our first beach walk – thank you for reading Papa’s World

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – family – most are gone – but memories linger on – missing them.

My step father John – my mother Mary and my brother in law Bill.

John was a decorated WWII hero – with the purple heart and numerous other medals.

He captured a castle and a Nazi officer out of uniform – there is a story in a military journal

that is in the WWII museum in Eldred Pa.that chronicles that event.

He took from that officer a automatic machine gun pistol – vintage WWI – that also resides in the museum

and is worth upwards in the thousands of dollars. They keep it locked away as it is so valuable.

He was wounded several times and went back into action.

Bill was a vet of the forgotten war – Korea – he seldom talked about it but while I was growing up –

he gave to me his sleeping bag that he used in the cold winters there.

I admire his stamina as all it was is a wool blanket inside a canvas liner!

I would get very cold while sleeping outside on the ground in it!

He was more to me than a brother in law – he was my friend and like a brother to me.

One time I was out with him on patrol in the cop car – he was the town cop –

We drove down across the tracks and out past the old pipe building –

he saw a woodchuck and said to me –

“Do I get him”?
“Sure I said”!

He pulled out his gun and from the front seat shot that old woodchuck –

I almost went deaf from that gun going off!

I said ” JESUS CHRIST BILL” and then we both just burst out laughing!

Lesson – never fire a gun from inside a car – you can barely hear for like 10 minutes!

John and Mary ( my mother) holding pies that she made from scratch!

Mom was known all over the town and county and into NYS for her baking.

She would bake rolls – bread – pies and cakes. Sweet rolls and sticky buns.

There was not anything she could not knead and bake and all from memory!

She did not need a receipt – she just did it after almost 85 years of her life baking!

She baked as a child learning from her mother who passed at 85 years old.

Mom was next to the youngest of 11 kids and was almost 98 years old when she passed.

She supplied pies and cakes and rolls for a diner in town.

She was so kind and loving – warm and gentle – but she also was a strong women – way before her time – she believed in equal rights and taught me that – she would come up with these sayings that made me laugh – ” You are as useless as a two petered billy goat”

Or she would say ” You are as useless as teats on a boar hog”! She had me in stitches –

she also played the accordion my father the spoons and sang and my uncle jack the wash board.

They would do this at family picnics and if the beer was free – at social events.

When she was young – she traveled with my grandma in the logging camps of Pa.

Making breakfast – lunch and dinner as a way to make money in the depression.

My father passed away in 1969 after a long battle with cancer – leaving mom a widow and my younger brother just entering H.S. After about ten years she met John – and they remarried – both of them.

They were together until he passed away at age 81.

She called him “JOHNNY BOY” and he was so good to her – just what she needed after ten years losing my dad.

He could fix anything and construction was his forte.

His cars and trucks immaculate even though they were ten years old – showroom condition.

He fixed up and remodled the house which she had kept going all those years .

That same house today is still in the family after almost 78 years –

my great niece lives there today.

Mary ( Mom) and John ( her Johnny boy)

We all had classmates on THE WALL –

a very divisive time in our young lives –

Papa’s World – last days at the condo and walking the beach – Ocean Keyes NMB.

Last morning sunrise – 6-30-21 – view from the Lanai – OCEAN KEYES – NMB
Another picture – 6 – 29 -21

Everymorning – when we wake up – me really early – Sherry – laying in bed to open her eyes and see this.

We – for nine months – have been blessed – staying – walking – listening to the surf – all from this condo.

A selfie on the lanai – and how our hearts and souls feel.
One last beach walk – wading in the warm ocean water – me carrying my shoes – the numerous tidal pools

people sitting in them -a look at the North Myrtle Beach proper – widest beach on the strand – walking –

comfort – the people -we will be back for it is but thirty minute drive for us.

After the beach walk – once again sitting on the lanai – awesome view – going to miss this!

When we return – I sit on the rocking chair on the lanai – or at the table – watching the water fowl –

seeing the huge fish from above and the endless turtles.

The otter that comes to swim and even a snake or two swimming –

No gators have I seen and was told there is none.

Swans come and go and at the far end – three white ducks I have named Huey – Dewey and Lewie.

Walking to the fridge and claiming the last German Pils – just for this occasion – salute!

It has been a memorable nine months – meeting people -having numerous family and friends visit us here.

Walking to the main street and all the live music both outside and inside.

The golf carts – the tourists and the six swimming pool here.

The pickle ball courts – the tennis courts – the work out room and the community center –

It is but a small piece of heaven -but it is heaven on earth.

Whenever we do go home – we have a bedroom and bath in the basement – along with a suite of other rooms.

There is a walk out to the fenced in back yard.

Out there is a fire pit – huge patio and a pergola – multiple chairs and some rockers and a outdoor table and chairs we left behind.

A Boce court that was there when they bought the house – really beautiful setting!

The back yard fountain next to the patio and fire pit.

Now – there is a new addition – MARLEY – the goldendoodle – Tammy’s dog – that she wanted – a big dog to walk!

Marley and Tammy – waiting for the storm to roll in!

She has always wanted a dog – but it had to be THE DOG!

The kids love her – Taylor has a way with her as she does with horses!

She – Marley – has now become a major part of the family! Here – she sits looking at the neighbors Mastiff – she runs over and they race back and forth on each owns side of the fence.
Marcus has now taken up cross country on his bicycle – going 89 miles through hills – gravel roads etc. in a race with other’s – finishing well up in the pack for his first race!

Papa’s World – walking home from the beach in Ocean Keyes – NMB – part two.

The small building to the right is golf cart storage and a trash compactor building – the one to the left is for golf carts only. You are on a list here for golf cart spaces – that is the only way to get a spot to park it.
Sherry walking by one of Six Pools just like this one – the two on the main road through Ocean Keyes – have a community building – with TV – pool table – ping pong table and chairs and tables. This one has the work out room with all types of equipment. Each pool has a hot tub and a small wading pool. There are propane grills and picnic tables outside and each pool has men and women bathrooms.

The complex has over 780 individual condo units and town houses – this at one time a golf course called The Old Gator Hole! I think in the mid 2000’s it was sold and made into Ocean Keyes plus two other developments including a plaza with Walmart and Home depot.

Her on the left is one of two trash compactors we use – this one also has recycle bins while the other does not.
On our walk we pass the tennis courts and pickle ball court where we have played pickle ball with friends.

Papa’s World – walking home from the beach at Ocean Keyes – N.M.B. going to miss this!

As we leave the beach entrance we use almost every day – and walk back to the condo – a two block walk to the gate.
This is the property just before we enter the gate at Ocean Keyes – We love this house and grounds!

This is along the sidewalk outside the fenced in yard – almost everything here comes back every year!

They have irrigation out here as well in the enclosed yard. It is shaded by Cypress trees –

and it is a inkling to what is inside the fence!

As soon as you walk through the gate – you see these three white ducks!

I have given them the names of HUEY – DEWEY and LOUIE ! LOL

Sherry – who is a CERTIFIED HEALTH COACH – will run ahead of me – then turn around and come back – to get her heart rate up – but I think she sees this sign and off she goes! LOL

I have to keep up or the sign in RED is for me!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – the next blog will continue the walk back through Ocean Keyes!

From here to the condo is 1/2 mile walking!

Papa’s World – golfing at Leopards Chase right across the road of our new house & Fish Market to eat dinner with friends!

Sherry Buck Cindy Papa

One of the reason we choose this area to live in – is the number of golf courses available to play!

There are four 18 hole courses right across the road in Ocean Ridge Plantation!

Another 10 to 15 courses within 10 miles or less!

And – our close friends of 30 plus years – a 40 minute drive away.

Our first tee cards which we all have – most f the 32 courses are right here.

Papa and Buck at Leopards Chase golf course at Ocean Ridge Plantation – home of the four BIG CAT golf courses – we are building right across the highway from them.

We have now played this course twice – but there are three more here that we plan on playing.

Our card cost $100.00 for each of us – but you play three times and it pays for that amount in savings.

There are 32 courses on the card and most price reductions are more that half!

Sherry taking a picture of Cindy taking a picture of Buck and myself! LOL

We have a lot of fun and laughs – we try to get out once a week – selecting a different course each time.

It so happened that we had played this course back when we first came down here and it is right by our new home.

Then – during our play we select a place to have dinner – and try to make it with a view –

and not to far to drive – most courses are equal distance for all of us to drive home from.

Our view from the upper deck of the Fish Market bar and grill – right off the causeway to Ocean Isle Beach – about ten minutes to our new home.

Sherry and I have been here before and had great meal and service – and it was the same this time!

They had a fishing tournament going on and where wrapping it up!

Two $30,000.00 prizes given out!

We got to watch them cleaning up their fishing boats and then walked over to see the catch –

We had very good food and service – within 15 minutes of sitting down we were eating and the place was packed!

Our view to the left of where we were sitting of the ICW and all the boats traveling back and forth.

A good day of golf – great friends to share dinner with – and looking forward when we can do this again.

Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach – mainland – North Carolina

This is the new house – most of the outside is complete – and the inside is almost done.

The kitchen and to the right – the breakfast nook.

The floors are all done as is the carpet and tile.

They move pretty fast when they all show up to complete what they have to do!

View from the sun room looking through the vaulted living room – office in the middle – front door to the left and garage door to the right.
The office with french doors.
The sun room and looking out to the patio.

The text message came yesterday – we are still on schedule for a walk through on 6-22-21 –

which most likely will of happened by the time I post this blog.

The screened in covered lanai off the breakfast nook and sun room.
Master bed room with bump out windows.
Master bath – tiled shower.
The tiled shower – all the tile came from where we both worked for a combined 79 1/2 years! DAL TILE CO.
We choose to make the shower and linen closet bigger and not have a bath tub in here.
Looking back into the master bedroom from the bathroom.

We were able to pick what we wanted for the house – as long as there were options.

Second bedroom – a hall bath is between the two front bedrooms across from the office and by the front door entrance – the entrance is covered as is the front porch.
The third bedroom which is on the side of the house.

It is almost done and we are two weeks out to closing which by the time I post this – will of happened.

Papa’s World – My first thought when we walked main street – all the golf carts we were back in The Villages!

They were here early – starting just back from the entrance to Fat Harold’s Beach Club where we go and watch them do the Shag dance!

There are a lot of golf carts in North Myrtle Beach – and they actually block off this portion of Main Street –

and make it into one big tail gate lot for golf cars – and there is no one way they park.

The are front to back – sides – going in different directions and by the start of the music – jammed in there!

Sherry with her chair on her back as we walk down the side walk toward the beach – this was early – about one hour before they were scheduled to begin the music!
Some carts parked facing away from the beach – when we walked by here later – they were almost all touching each other – just enough room to walk about – chat up your neighbor and sip a drink – somehow they had set up speakers in the middle divide and the band could be heard through those speakers – actually sounded better than where we sat.
Looking back up main street across Ocean Blvd. Now these carts are all facing front but behind them – they are in different directions – I think at the end the police help them get out – we did not hang around as lightening was coming from upo the street behind these carts! The rain did hold off – later in the night.
Part of the crowd in chairs they set up – we were to the left and not as crowded and easy to get in and out.
The stage at the arch on main street entrance to the beach.

It is here that the OD PAVILION – before it was destroyed in the ’50’s from a hurricane –

The SHAG DANCE started!

HOTO’s also is here as well as the OD TIKI HUT and radio station 94.9 the SURF!

HOTO’s behind the red sign and THE SURF RADIO STATION 94.9 – and the OD TIKI BAR.

The music was good – although in different areas as we walked about – it was better – must be where we sat!

The crowd was big and this the second concert of the season which goes every Thursday night –

till the end of October!

I am happy for the merchants as it has been a long 15 months of the pandemic.

I think the vaccinations plus the number of people who already have had covid19

has brought us closer to herd immunity.

The clouds were moving in – we both had rain alerts on our phones and behind us toward rte. 17 – thunder and lightening! TIME TO GO HOME!

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 – On the Autumn of life – sunrise – part three – family!

Sunrise – walking the beach – well – a few hours after the sunrise! LOL

Families are important to us – today – our youngest daughter and her family!

Cassidy Bode Taylor Marcus Tammy

The three little ones as I call them!

They get so excited when they see us – Bode being the only boy with five granddaughters!

BODE TAYLOR CASSIDY – they call us PAPA and MORMOR ( mothers – mother in Swedish)

We go home and we stay with them or with Debby and Mike.

Deb and Mike live just outside Winchester Va. and Tammy and Marcus just outside Leesburg Va.

They now have another addition to the family – MARLEY – she is a Golden-Doodle!

MARLEY and TAYLOR!

She is such a chilled back puppy – but still a puppy with sharp teeth – she behaves with Taylor –

but with Bode and Cassidy she terrorizes them with those tiny teeth!

Taylor and Cassidy – born fraternal twins – Taylor has always been the bigger of the two – I think when she is all done – she will be close to six feet tall!

Cassidy always says – someday I will be bigger! But – she is of average height – more like her mother –

Taylor takes after her MorMor who is 5′ 9″ tall!

Taylor – Sherry and Bode – on the way to the beach.

They love their Mor Mor – always calling her as does Cassidy.

Papa’s World – on the Autumn of Life – sunrises – family – Part Two !

It never gets old – every morning is different – as are the nights – I will miss this view in a few short days!

Our Condo in Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach – found simply by accident – and now almost nine months later –

We will move out and into our new home – if the closing is on time!

But – here is what we look at each morning – the lake – the wild fowl – the houses – the fountains – trees –

I love the rees!

And family – little ones climbing trees!

All or most of the family has come down – Mike and Maddy have not made it here.

The little ones love to explore – play on the playground at Barefoot Landing.

Family is really important to us – and keeping the time to get here manageable!

In our new home it will be six hours for one family and almost seven hours for the other.

They can drive in one day and be here early enough to enjoy!

Family time – beach – exploring – warm weather – new home – new neighborhood.

The Myers family – our oldest daughter and the oldest granddaughters – Debby – Ella – Mike – Papa – Sherry – Sarah and Maddy – our first granddaughter – Ella was second and then Sarah.
Ella a senior – next fall – enroll at Randolph College – will play soccer – her H.S,. is undefeated and about to enter states.
Sarah – in the middle of Taylor and Cassidy – Sarah is the youngest in her family –

Sarah wants to act – design – fashion – dance – no sports for her – although I secretly believe she would be awesome – still growing – Ella at 5′ 81/2 ” – I think she will be taller – and Taylor will be tallest of all – only 10 years old!

Maddy – oldest grand child with the youngest grand child – Bode – only boy – Maddy is going into her third year of college at the University of Lynchburg where she also plays soccer – carrying a 3.85 GPA!
Mike – PHYS ED. teacher – Ella – Debby – QNMD for The Juice Plus Company.

Family means a great deal to us – even though we are down here – they have visited and we have gone home several times – staying in each family homes with them.
