Papas World – Day# 29 in sheltering in place.

When you are separated from friends by distance

you manage to get them all together through “ZOOM”!

Last evening – at 7:00 pm. this came about!

Welcome to Papa’s World
WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY!
MY SITE: livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

There is a bunch of us that have known each other for years and years

neighbors and small town – growing up together – friends!

And we decided that during this SOCIAL DISTANCING time –

we would do a SOCIAL HOUR over the internet using “ZOOM”!

Now – when we are together – one or two people in this case four –

always introduce a salute to health – life and laughter!

And – it began this way last night and continued for THREE HOURS!

But – along with that came the good times remembered –

the plans for a get together at the end of August

and still being debated as to when that will start and finish!

Jim and Mike are negotiating that with the latest being

celebrating ALL birthdays in September!

And I think Mike’s is toward the end of that month!

Now you notice that Mike is on here twice?

He is TECH savey and has his lap top and IPHONE.

One to see and one to hear! LOL

Many laughs – cheers and stories were told.

All in good fun and how during this time

at least for me – no haircut until this is over!

And yes – back in the late 60’s and mid 70’s

I did the long hair and motorcycle thing!

Now – we have decided that during this time of Sheltering in place

from our homes in Pa. – Va. Beach – NVA and N.C.

that we would do this every Friday night!

A few shots of Fireball ( Sherry and Cindy)

a couple beers – ( Tom)

and some wine ( Buck and Carol)

And a little of all the above ( Mike and Jim)

That at least we can practice SOCIAL DISTANCING

with a SOCIAL HOUR miles apart

And until we meet again in person

CHEERS – GOOD TIMES & GOOD FRIENDS!

Papas World – golfing- staying in touch – 38 yrs.

We played softball together in the mid ’70’s

and continued until I turned 40.

Then I played volleyball –

sometimes we played together

when I turned 48 –

I was getting too old – I turned to golf

and today – we still get together

drink a few beers and swing away

me more often than him! LOL

My buddy Jim

I am 9 years older – but we first met on the softball field

I went to his wedding

and we have been friends ever since.

We worked together before we moved

and along the way he introduced me to his friend Buck!

Buck Tom Jim
the three Amigo’s
as my wife Sherry says!

We ended up living right across the street from Buck and Cindy.

And we all would meet up-

and to this day some 35 plus years later – we still do!

Sherry Buck Cindy Dottie

Every 4 to 6 months we try to do this –

going from one house to the other

Buck and Cindy live just South of Wilmington N.C. now.

Jim and Dottie now live in Va. Beach area.

And of course we live SW of DC.

Our journey from back home – NWPA and SWNY has evolved

But we still stay in touch!

Sherry Dottie Cindy

These three together laugh and laugh –

and they sneak the fireball!

Esp. when we golf – it almost always is guys vs. the gals.

And let me tell you – NO STROKES !

Jim wants to give strokes -and they will whip us!

We have played for years and years even up

and most often it comes down to one stroke difference!

Jim and Sherry

We all were Bills fans – we kind of adopted the Redskins

only because when we moved -no one carried the Bills.

We tried for three years – there were two Sports bars

but it took a long time to get to them in DC traffic.

So – we still followed the Bills and watched the skins.

Cindy Jim Sherry Dottie

But Cindy and Buck – Dottie and Jim have remained die hard Bills Fans!

We got together this season in Wilmington

and all went to a Sports bar called the Lazy Pirate –

where we watched the Bills win!

Cindy Buck Sherry Tom

On our trip to Northern California – at a Sports bar –

in old town Sacramento!

We have been trying to get Jim and Dottie to come along

with us on one of our trips.

Maybe this year they will!

Sherry Dottie Buck
Cindy Tom Jim

It will happen one of these times

Maybe Nashville – or Gatlinburg or Oregon!

Who know where it will be next!

This is us

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

We are blessed to have friends such as these

Papa’s World – Friends – The Library – Beer and Fireball Shots – Keeping in touch

On our recent get together – a beer tasting in a old house with a fake library !

Try as hard as we can – life gets busy – but for over 35 years – we have stayed in touch – getting together at each others houses – every 4 or 5 months.

We are now spread out – Wilmington N.C. – Va. Beach and D.C. area – but we remain good friends.

Last Fall – our golf outing in Va. Beach – guys vs. gals.

Last Fall – we all got together – to play golf on several courses in the Va. Beach area. The format was GUYS VS. GALS – and I advocated ” NO STROKES ” as some of us have done this before and ” THE GALS” are just too darn good to give up STROKES !

Well – I was right – they had a STROKE a hole and they kicked our butts ! Even without the STROKES it was almost even ! Now we all are not PAR golfers – they ended up minus par with the strokes – and we were a little over par – but the jest of the whole thing was we had fun ! Plus I think they were nipping the FIREBALL more often than not !!!!! LOL

This was taken in Oahu – when the four of us went and played golf.

My wife Sherry – has the perfect form and swing – always straight down the middle of the fairway – can not remember the last time we had to look for her ball. Cindy – hits it a ton – going out into the fairway – neither one gets into trouble – the guys – not so much – never know WHERE my ball will go ! That is what makes them so good – straight and usually on the green or close on the second shot – depending how long the hole is.

Yep – that is me on Oahu – the valley over from where they shot Jurassic Park.



We try to play golf where ever we go – but – we also do Karaoke – well – I try to – but that is the only time I sing ! Cindy has her own Karaoke machine and all the songs – she brings it to most get together’s. Our theme songs are Desperado and Friends in low places. We get pretty involved in New York – New York. I have video’s but I promised I would not share them !

On our golf outing back home in NWPA – Sherry and Cindy .

Now I am not much of a Wine drinker nor much of a hard drinker – I stick mainly to light beer – and only on special occasions. However – I will take a nip of Fireball and as sometimes – well a lot of times when we golf together – I will join the others on birdies and sometimes long pars – with a little toast of the fireball. All in all – we do have a lot of fun.

Keeping in touch – friends – beer and fireball – living our lives to the plus.

Hope you enjoyed – keep the good health up – and keep in touch with friends
