Papa’s World –

We went South to Virginia Beach for a surprise birthday party –

’95 has a new express lane –

toll – opened up in the last year –

Where it merges causes a major back up for miles and miles

bumper to bumper –

four lane – MILES !

going perhaps five miles a hour !

GOOD MORNING

On our return trip – I told Sherry – no more –

I am not going to get into that mess –

I AM TAKING ROUTE 17 all the way home !

I checked Map Quest – only eight miles different –

slower speed limits – so one hour difference –

Now factor in the stop and go traffic from Fredericksburg to Potomac Mills

you lose

thirty to forty five minutes –

ROUTE 17 here I come !

HOW I FELT

What a peaceful ride – hardly any traffic –

speed limit – high of 60 posted –

35 through towns –

Almost all four lane roads through the countryside!

OUR VIEW

This picture is exactly as we saw it mile after mile –

Countryside for most part flat –

Green and well kept farms and homes.

Tappahannock

A beautiful town along the river – Tappahannock Va.

Note to myself –

Have to go back sometime to check this out !

Tappahannock

We followed this river –

the RAPPAHANNOCK for miles –

A really nice area.

Countryside along route 17 in Virginia

The countryside along 17 reminds me of back home in SWNY & NWPA

You could do this almost the entire trip
and not see much traffic!

I will almost always take this way when I head South –

At least to get below Fredericksburg –

It made for a great attitude

I hope this helps you out when you travel South through Virginia –

Even in stormy weather it is better –

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – sitting – writing – blogging

MY WORLD NOW

Each morning I arise – believe it or not – I have NO IDEA what I will blog!

Inspiration just comes –

it might be something I experienced –

Something I saw

or maybe read while going through my emails and face book.

Good advice – being married for almost 37 years –


( yes – I know the date – time and place )

We are each others best friend –

but I always follow one rule –

” IT IS NOT FOR ME TO QUESTION WHY ? BUT FOR ME TO DO OR DIE ! “

WHEN YOU FIND THE ONE

WHEN YOU FIND THE ONE – KEEP ON TRYING – YOU FOUND A KEEPER

FAMILY – living life through them

Staying young and involved –

this only happens once – live it !

YES I DID

In my younger years –

before I met Sherry –

I was a little wild –

I rode for 6 years – had long hair –

( QUITE CURLY ) like CARROT TOP !

Couldn’t help it – just natural curly –

but I had a accident – and decided it was time to get off and move on.

Our little Taylor

I have found that my everyday life is most enjoyable

and rewarding when I mix in our young grand kids .

Watching them grow –

and each different –

Taylor loves horses and someday I see her competing!

The trail of life

We walk together – we talk –

as we walk – going along the path –

I am now in the – what shall I say –

Autumn of life –

but I LIVE each day

So – every day I wake up –

not knowing what it shall bring

Not knowing what my blog will be –

Today’s storm clouds

But I do know this –

no matter what STORM CLOUDS

are about in this country –

I shall live my life to the plus each and every day –

ALOHA

With my best friend – living life to the plus –

never knowing what I shall write –

Makes me do –

What comes natural – one day at a time!
