Papa’s World – family time walking and playing a game!

Sarah Ella Papa Maddy Mike Debby

We decided before a late lunch to walk the river trail in Lynchburg Va.

Ella Sarah Sherry

We had time to kill before eating a late lunch –

besides – Maddy wanted to get out into the open and walk

as she loves to hike even by herself!

Once I start a pace – I just seem to walk – that is just who I am.

After a couple miles we made it to the turn around

where this was as far as we would go even though it continued!

It was time to jump – act wild – and be funny!

Before heading back to the hotel and have a serious game of RUMMIKUB!

I was called over to help Ella out – they told me to stay away after I helped her! LOL

Papa’s World – ringing in the New Year – Friends and golf – catch phrase!

Cindy Sherry Dottie

Once again we celebrated a new year with friends.

Making sure we all were social distancing

before we met up – and the game was on!

THE GAME – golf – four strokes on the highest handicapped holes per side for the ladies.

Jim and I play from the yellows – Buck and ladies from the reds.

Front nine – with the handicap – 38 – 39 ladies! Par 36.

Jim and Buck

The second nine – 39 to 41 – guys! par 36.

When they are on – they are tough to beat – always down the middle.

Sherry – par three drive – putt for birdie – they all missed the putt! But – you can see – they are tough to beat!
The group of us have been friends for years and years – playing golf is part of that friendship.
Buck Papa Jim – getting ready to tee off.

The second day – same rules – front nine – 39 to 41 – guys!

Different course – and this was a day after playing a game called CATCH PHRASE!

Now – we just not seem to win at this! LOL!

Or the card game which Cindy overtook me on the last hand! LOL

Cindy practice swings before teeing it up!

The second nine – 40 to 44 – guys!

Finally – we were able to beat them after 18 holes the second day –

it had rained all night – course was so wet – you had to have a ball retriever

for the middle of the fairway!

Cindy – getting ready to line up the shot!

Papa’s World – A wind storm – hunkering down!

It was very windy out – a storm had hit the gulf coast

and was working its way North only inland from where we were.

However – it was very windy

and here at Ocean Keyes – there are very large

old time growth of live Oaks and Pine trees!

The kind that soar way up into the sky!

This picture I took standing at the fourth floor landing

of the condo we are living in.

It still went high above me!

And the tree branches were swaying back and forth.

We went for a short walk and decided it was not safe enough!

Small pieces of branches were coming down.

Small but large enough to really hurt you

if they hit you!

Well – not this! LOL

But – we did go back inside to wait it out!

And we tracked the storm to see how long this would be this way!

We then went out onto the Lanai – which is all screened in.

The wind seemed to be more at the front of the condo

and although we could see it come across the small lake

we were comfortable sitting on the Lanai!

So – we had lunch and broke out the new game we bought

called Rummikub!

And ended up sitting out there for a couple hours

while the storm passed us by!

( SHE WON)

We have begun our new life

living life one day at a time.

Papa’s World – golfing at Sandpiper Bay – dinner at Clark’s!

Buck ready to tee it off!

Our friends – Cindy and Buck

live about 40 miles from where we are staying.

And – for 25 years or so

have been coming to this area to play golf.

Buck told me he has played

on 85 different courses here in that time!

Cindy ripping a shot down the middle
Sherry hitting her second shot down the middle

We play a game every time we golf together

recently it has been guys vs girls!

And – I say no strokes

because it always ends up 1 or 2 strokes either way.

They both are always in the middle!

Buck goes first and depending where he goes – is what I do next.
With me – I never know – left – middle or right

Try as I might – it is a guess where I end up.

But – we always have fun – chirping back and forth Cindy and I!

I say NO STROKES – she says YES STROKES!

Last two times out – they have beaten us by 3 and then 2 strokes!

On the first one we gave strokes ( 3)

and the second time here – zero strokes.

They are just too good and never in trouble.

Always in the middle on every shot!

Down the middle!
Ended up on the green!

In a few weeks – our other friends will be joining us

and we once again will play girls vs. the guys.

The Browns – the McBrides and us.

Buck and Cindy at dinner at Clark’s

After golf at Sandpiper Bay – we met Sherry’s sister Debby

who drove down to spend 4 or 5 days with us.

We had dinner sitting outside by the marina

A view of the boats
Harbor dining

We had a excellent dinner

recapping stories since it has been a while since they have seen her sister.

Sherry Papa Buck Cindy Debby

It was the perfect end to a great day!

We lost – they won –

and until we play again

I always enjoy this – NO STROKES – laughing!

Papa Cindy Sherry Buck

They are just too good!

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

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!
