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!

Papa’s World – after the escape room – GOLF !

Good morning
Of course – part two of why
we are all together
Guys vs. Gals
GOLF

That is what we do – and this has been on going for years !

This time we only played nine holes –

On Sunday morning – as we also had to hurry home-

change and rush to a PIRATE BAR to watch the “BILLS ” !

That is my next blog – but today – we gave strokes !

As much as I did not want to – we did ! LOL

greens were fast even with dew on them !
While every one else was putting
Sherry was chasing ducks !
LOL

The match was nine holes –

We had to give them THREE STROKES !

And two replays ( do not know about that )

Jim made that deal !

Me – after all these years

know better

they will kick your butt !

Plus – we had to use everyone’s drive at least once

Ended up using Bucks four times – mine three times and Jim’s twice.

They started us on the back nine
of 27 holes
The Azalea course
which the 24 th. fairway
runs right behind their house !

The gals went out first –

and we could tell if they were playing good

The antics on the green we could see and hear !

The three of us that are retired
keep telling the youngsters
that this is what you have to do !
YEAH RIGHT !!!!

The course was in really great shape –

and we never saw anyone until the 24 th. hole

a two some playing behind us !

The gals played well – we could tell that this was going to be tough !

We watched them tee off – all three right down the middle-

That is their game

US – it is right or left !

They took a picture on one of their drives

all three balls were right beside each other

in the middle of the fairway !

Jim and I go back

Buck and I

We watched as all three
hit this island green
par three – with water on three sides
they were putting for birdie!

We were sailing right along – one under par after six holes!

We were getting ready
lots of chatter

We were playing good – actually making putts !

One putted first three holes !

Jim checking score
That is when we started to sweat

Those THREE STROKES were going to be big in the end !

DON’T GIVE STROKES
they will kill you
they never lose balls
and are always in middle
and on the green most times
in regulation !

We had boggy’s on the last three holes

and they were watching and waiting for us on the last hole.

Giving them the three strokes

we ended up winning by ONE STROKE

and if we had not one putted those first three holes

well – as always – luck plays a role !

Next blog – ” SHOUT – the Bills make you want to SHOUT “

Papa’s World – Things in my life – memories

I wonder where these people think they are right!

There are so many inconsiderate people out there driving.

They pass you on the right in turn lanes –

They pass you on the left and then cut in front of you

to take the exit!

They tail gate – they constantly blow their horns at other people

This scares you if you do not know what is going on!

Just a pet peeve with me!

Let food be your medicine – let medicine be your food!

Finally – after almost 40 years –

I started eating healthy!

My wife – Sherry – started me on the road to health.

She and I had gone to NBC for your health –

at the Washington DC convention center.

There she found what was to become our staple

Juice Plus – over 30 fruits – vegetables and berries JUICED!

All the nutrients after drying in a patented formula

put into capsules or gummy’s.

The next best thing to real food

and you take them every day!

Being nice – being friendly – being polite – being helpful!

I post every day on social media and I write a blog everyday.

Three things I post everyday.

Good thoughts – smiles and laughter – positive thoughts!

I try to not post political – really hard not too!

My thought on that is my VOTE!

Making changes that way and peaceful protest –

writing letters and postcards.

But – my motto so to speak is above –

IT’S IMPORTANT TO BE NICE!

I LOVE MY WIFE – ALL THE DIFFERENT PERSONALITY’S!

At the falls!

Just a few of the things in my life – memories!

Papa’s World – a little golf and a lot of deer!

We went golfing with friends Ginger and Jayson

to the county course called Algonkian Public Golf Course!

It is a 18 hole course and we only played the front nine

but there are literally herds of deer!

I counted sixteen on one hole with two bucks in velvet!

They were so tame they would not move as you hit the ball

or drove up in the cart to find your ball.

Everywhere you looked there were deer.

And there is a county walking path that comes right through the course.

There were a ton of people walking – running and biking –

right through the deer!

They also were bedded down in the weeds and tall grass.

Some hard to see – and unless they got up –

you did not know they were there!

They never moved as Sherry hit her ball!

It is really a very pretty course running by the Potomac.

It is a county park – with the golf course right in the middle.

The course is flat with a lot of trees –

and very well kept up –

and in really good shape!

Sherry had tow pars!

And this was one of them!

Jayson teeing off

You can not see but the fairway was full of deer!

This is close to where his ball ended up

They never moved even when we drove up!

We both would like to go back as we played this last year

with our friends from N.C. Buck and Cindy!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

PAPA’S WORLD – A little golf and lots of deer!

Papa’s World – I can not carry a tune – but a few beers

I am actually a pretty shy person –

I listen more than I talk unless we are good friends.

Of course Sherry says I am getting hard of hearing!

Now , maybe or maybe not.

It is hard to hear what she says as she walks away

or from another room

I have noticed in my aging

a lot of words sound alike!

My problem is trying to decide what word it is!

One thing I do not care for is crowds

being like I am boxed in.

One time – just to get my breath – I had to leave my seat

while watching the Nationals

It was like the air was heavy and I had to get out of there!

But I do try – getting a draft beer – going back to my seat

Now – I normally do not sing!

I am not really good at that.

But – when we get together with close friends

after a few beers and some fireball

well – I am not as good as I once was

but I am good once as I ever was!

That is when the microphone comes out

and 3 or 4 of us start singing! LOL

Buck Cindy Sherry Papa Dottie Jim

This is our friends group who do the singing!

Not every time – because we also like to golf!

But – when we do get together

it usually is a good time

and hugs until we get together again

and we have been doing this for over 30 years.

Papa’s World – smile a little smile for me!

The smile of the innocence!

Smiling – brings joy to all

Joy – brings happiness

Happiness brings laughter!

Dottie Cindy Sherry

Laughter brings Friends

Friends bring being together!

Together brings good times!

Good times brings cheers-

Cheers brings antics –

Antics brings friendship

Along with friends – antics and laughter

This all brings families together

Sandy ( Cindy & Buck) Debby & Tammy ( Sherry & Tom) Katie ( Dottie & Jim)

First are the daughters

generations and then their family

The circle of families

Smile a little smile for me

Laugh a little

A picture is worth a thousand words

Smiles are forever.

Papa’s World – looking forward – vagabonds!

This move has gone easier than I thought it would!

We had to go back to the old house to pick up mail

that somehow did not get forwarded.

A long time ago in Williamsburg Va.

Sherry asked me “Do you miss it”?

No – I said – we spent 14 years here –

and the thing I miss the most is the yard

and all the trees and bushes I planted.

And the other thing is the walking trails!

We had almost 18 miles of walking trails!

Those I miss as I look around driving through the neighborhood.

The thousands of times we walked that sidewalk or that road

to get to the paths.

To walk we never needed to drive anywhere!

Or to ride our bikes!

It was all there!

At a conference for The Juice Plus Company

We always traveled out of state –

we have many friends across the nation.

So – now we have no ties to a home!

And we have plans – five months in North Myrtle Beach

WHY?

Because we want to explore our options

just to see if we like that area!

We also want to check out the Va. Beach area and into N.C.

I am waiting to see how the packages will work

at our new address! LOL!!!!

We will meet up with our oldest friends –

We will explore their area.

But for now – like the song says

“NO SHOES – NO SHIRT – NO WORRIES”!

“NO MORTGAGE – NO TAXES – NO HOA”!

Zoey Kathy Cory Dottie Katie Adam Cody

I am hoping I get all the names correct

I am not good at names!

Nicky and Katie
Adam Dylan Ella Sarah and Megan
Kathy Nate walking Cody and Cory Kevin and Jim and Dottie

The house was large three complete floors

Nine bedrooms and seven 1/2 bathrooms.

Sherry Cody Jim Nicky
Adam and Dottie
Cody and Jim

Many years ago – Jim – Dottie – Sherry and I

with our families – would vacation together

at various beaches

and when they were young

I would help carry the little ones!

Katie – my little friend

Here is Katie – my little friend – as she said I was the only friend she had!

I would carry her through the sand dunes

only to get to the beach and discover one of her little shoes was missing!

All these years we kid each other on being the only friends

either one of us had!

My – how the years have gone by – she is still in my heart

“MY LITTLE FRIEND”!

Sherry my beautiful partner
Cody Cory ( lifetime friends) Zoey and Nate
Sherry Cody Jim Nicky

I hope I was able to get everyone and their names correct

Jim and Sherry we have been friends for 44 years

Papa’s World – A little game called MASH BALL!

Starting the week – I had no idea what it was –

sort of a small version of Beer Pong!

At first they played it on the cement pad around the pool

which got really hot!

Then they found some “NOODLES”

that had been thrown away by the previous guests in the garbage

and rigged it up to float!

That was a game saver!


Everyone took their turn – if you won – you played on!

Hours and hours in the shallow end

just dip down in the water to cool off!

You kept one hand on the floating game board to keep it steady

and there were ten open cups

When you put a ball in the open cup

you placed a red dish in it –

when you filled all ten red cups

you won the game!

Mash Ball on one end – then the deep part – and then shallow again
After Mash Ball was over then nap time was over and the little ones came out to play
Little ones with parents and grand parents
Kathy and Katie
Sherry with Sarah and Ella

Pool time became more and more as it got really hot on the beach.

A couple guys would go and set up on the beach

but with little kids – it was easier by the pool

the sand was so hot – even with sandal’s on

It would burn your toes!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – I suggest when you rent a beach house you must have a pool!

When the beach is so hot – and the waves huge –

And tons of jelly fish – then retreat to the pool!

We had little ones with us and they could not cope with the waves.

So a lot of time was spent right here poolside!

Of course when it is NAP TIME –

the adults come out to play!

And SHADE – you must have chairs and SHADE

and a little TIKI HUT with fridge!

Of course a game of MASH rigged up to float

at the far end of the pool

kept everyone occupied and cooled off!

And bring your grand children to the beach

to create the memories of their childhood.

And of course your favorite brew of choice!

Sherry

Make sure you have comfortable seats

to rest your kindle on!

And a big pool for everyone to enjoy!

Papa

Yes – when you book a beach house

make sure it has a pool

you most likely will spend more time there

as Sharks start feeding in the twilight

and the pool always has entertainment

Be music from a speaker – shade from the sun –

drinks from the fridge

or just good people to hang out with!

And of course in the rarly mornings –

you must also have a deck

to see the sunrise from

and a cup of coffee to enjoy those first rays of light!
