Papa’s World – inside the new home – Part Three – the tour continues!

The middle bedroom – decorated with pictures of where Sherry grew up – Mount Jewett, Pa.

This room is where we put pictures of Mount Nebo – the historic 1800’s eight sided Swedish church –

which was built by the Swedes who settled here. It also is the final resting place of her realatives.

There is a copy of a very old map of the town of Mount Jewett – which we just framed but have not hung yet.

And of course the historic Kinzua railraod bridge – constructed in the late 1800’s –

across a valley and over 300 feet high and a mile long – and part of it taken down by a tornado!

This same bridge is where they filmed a episode of the TV series “BIGFOOT”!

This was all territory that belonded to the Seneca Indian tribe before the white man.

Looking back toward the hallway to the front door – with the bedrooms and guest bathroom to the left –

The office is to the right and behind that wall in the center. To the right is the hall leading to the garage and laundry room. We choose this model for the open concept and the enclosed office space.

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 – Magnolia Greens – golfing again with friends – a place to stay when lease ended.

Our condo lease was up – our closing did not happen – so they took us in once again to their home –

on Magnolia Greens golf course just outside Leland, N.C.

Buck and Cindy are our friends – before we all moved – we were neighbors back in WNY.

We moved into a house next to them some 36 1/2 years ago and we knew them before that.

Sherry and Cindy
William ( Buck) McBride

I have always known him as BUCK – never called him Bill.

About 15 years ago – he developed non essential tremors – and had a brain operation – where electric probes were implanted – with out them and the control under his skin on his chest – he would not have any control on his right side – arm and leg. The downside to having this implanted – is with it turned on – he loses his clarity on speech –

and has problems with balance. But – he still can golf and handle himself well – I drive – watch his ball –

and we get a handicap flag that allows us to get near his ball so he does not get so tired out.

He is one of my two best friends – the other Jimmy who I played softball with back in the mid ’70’s.

We all are close friends and Dottie – Jim’s wife – I have known as long as Jim.

The three of us grew up in the same small town of Eldred Pa.

Cindy and Buck grew up in Portville N.Y. just across the border and Sherry grew up in Mount Jewett Pa. aboput 35 miles away.

Sherry spotting Cindy’s drive – Buck waiting – let me tell you – both ladies seldom get out of bounds or in the rough.

They are right down the middle and anywhere from 130 to 175 yards!

It makes them tough to beat – I golf from the senior tees – and when I get a good drive – it still is about even with them

as they have a advantage from the ladies tees.

Buck – because of his condition – golfs from the same tees as the ladies –

so a lot of the time we use his ball on the scramble –

He can still hit it almost as far as they can.

Buck teeing off and if you look close – right over his head in the tree line is his ball – going down the middle!
Sherry hitting another ball down the middle while Cindy watches.

We play even up – no strokes – and this time out – after 18 holes – Buck and I lost by one stroke!

Their second shots are like the drives – and close to the green – a chip and one putt for par or worse two putt.

Sherry and I just love to play – get out – fresh air – and a lot of laughs.

Cindy has a traveling shot bar!

If we make a birdie – it is shot time – since we make few of them – she switched it to pars! LOL

Playing Sherry’s drive from the last picture! Cindy was a little behind her on this hole.

They pared – we boggied – missed putt – and that was the difference in the 18 hole match!

Papa’s World – Saint Bonaventure Golf Course.

Saint Bonaventure University Western New York outside of Olean N.Y.

We lived in this area most of our lives together

The hills – rolling meadows

the lush greenery and yes snow.

But we also belonged to the Bona’s Golf Course!

Situated right next to the very large cemetery

and right across the highway from the University –

sits a nine hole course where we attempted to play golf

sometimes twice a week!

There are special holes here I remember

one is at the tee box of number FIVE

where you are up on a knoll

looking down but out across the trees to the campus

and the hills in many colors of the fall.

Just a beautiful peaceful view.

And then number SIX

where I recorded my only HOLE IN ONE!

Looking across number TWO fairway to number THREE!

The beauty of the course in all seasons

well – in my thought – not SNOW! LOL

But people cross country ski here in the winter.

And now – a brand new clubhouse built overlooking the course

in the exact same place as the old one

which I all the time hit!

The new clubhouse at Saint Bonaventure University

The old club house held many memories

of dinners – events and celebrations for us to remember.

But now – it is brand new

offering a view of numbers one – two and three.

And in the splendor of the fall foliage

The last time we were there

the course was in excellent shape

and I still see the views in my mind.

The course can be challenging

and sort of lulls you to wonderment of the views.

Number SEVEN – very hard to hold the green

if you are short it will roll 75 yards back down the slope

too far and you are in a steep back with 12 in rough!

In its splendor – lush green – views for miles.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

If you are ever in Western New York –

about 65 miles South of Buffalo and you play golf

Just across the road from Saint Bonaventure University

sits a nine hole course we learned to play together

Take the time to take it all in and play nine!

Papa’s World – Golfing at Crow Creek and finally we beat them!

We have driven by this golf course it seems like a hundred times!

This course sits on the right on Route 17 as you drive South to North Myrtle Beach in N.C.

It always looked so well groomed and made you just want to stop and take a picture!

Well – finally – we played it – with Buck and Cindy – our long time friends.

We try to play once a week with them – either toward there home which will be about 40 miles from our new home-

Or they drive down and stay the night as they did here and we golf the next day.

Cindy and Sherry – getting ready to be called up to the first tee!

It is always a scramble – we all hit – and then the gals go to their best ball and the guys do the same.

Then you do it all over again – and they are never in trouble – always down the middle –

and each one hits a good ball off the tee.

Playing the senior tees for us – they have a advantage on their tee box and our drives are about the same.

Plus – they are always in the middle of the fairway and I never know where I will be! LOL

This course is one that when you play it – you want to come back!

I would rate this one right up with the best ones we have played and it was a nice course!

There were so many scenes I wanted to take pictures of – but we had a group behind us that was pushing and a group ahead that was always waiting for the group ahead of them.

It was not to my advantage to take pictures as we waited as the group behind could not see what we were seeing with waiting on the other groups.

So – I just relaxed and waited – along with the gals and when we could hit – they hit first and I hit last.

All in all – it turned into a relaxing golf day as no one could go anywhere and we just played the course.

But – I want to return – and by the way – we finally overcame our losing streak – we beat them!

By a total of three strokes over 18 holes!

They are so hard to beat – and if we could putt – well – that would be a big difference!

Papa’s World – we golfed a course that runs into N.C. for some holes and then into S.C.!

Sherry and Cindy – waiting to tee off on number one of Farmstead – located on the border of N.C, and S.C.

Beautiful course that we wanted to play – I did not know it was divided onto two states

until after a couple holes there was a WELCOME TO N.C. sign on the cart path!

The hole leading into N.C. from S.C. – this was a old farm and the developed this course –

and a siter course called the Meadowlands!

I do not know the history here on this old farm

but it is unique in that you play two states!

Cindy teeing off for a par three – they – Sherry and her – both made it across and close to the green!
Buck and Cindy after nine holes!

Again – they beat us pretty good – but we had a ton of fun!

Great time – coffee break!

Nature – ponds – trees – shrubs – open fairways and lots of birds!

On our way back into S.C from N.C. !

PAPA’S WORLD livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – Friends – last day – golf at The Valley – East port – dinner – SNOOKY’S – ocean

Sherry and Pam – about to start our golf adventure – Pam could not golf – still recovering from a achilles surgery

On their last full day – Bob wanted to play golf – we last played together I would guess 1965 or 1966!

A very long time ago – and he had their clubs in the RV but had not used them all winter.

Pam – who was still recovering from surgery on her heel – would do the driving and Bob rode with me.

Bob and I went to school together from grade one to grade twelve.

They have wintered the last two seasons in their RV – this time it was in Florida.

They made it a point to stop here on their way to family in Nashville before heading home in N.H.

Sherry and Pam
Waiting to tee off – we like this course which sits right on Rte. 17 in Little River – S.C. It is a short course but fun to play. Sherry and I have golfed here alone and with friends.
Now – she hits it on the fairway most times – and every once in a while – will hit it just right and bingo – it goes a long ways – here is a 298 yard hole for her – and this is her drive!

When you play a scramble and her and Cindy hit from the women’s tees – it is good to have them both on your team!

After a good day of golf – we scrambled to a 44 on both nines – we took them to Cherry Grove to one of our favorite places to eat – “SNOOKY’S” on the Beach.

This has become our go to place to take visitors – food is good – and you sit ocean front just yards off the sand.

We have many – many memories of growing up together in a small town in NWPA – called Eldred.

Many adventures of sleeping out under the stars – roaming the streets after curfew at 10:00 PM.

Nothing bad – raid a garden or two – sneak some beer – campfire – canoe trips down the river –

playing sports together – proms – dances – joining the exployer’s together-

driving – family – both his and mine.

Bob and Sherry checking out the beach where we walk every day!
Pam and I a selfie while they discuss the beach!
Ending our day together – walking to the cars. Pam and Bob!

Papa’s World – random pictures – kids – golf – and a rainbow in the fountain on the lake.

Today – I post some pictures – just random pictures – but ones I have close to my heart!
Taylor holding MorMor’s hand – in turn MorMor also holding Bode’s hand.

They adore Sherry – whom they call MorMor – Swede for Mothers Mother!

When we walk with all three – it usually is Taylor who loses out to the other two in holding her hands.

This time it was Cassidy – who with each passing day – is becoming more and more independent.

These two are coming closer and closer together as they grow up.

They are twins – but had to come early as Taylor was taking all the nutrients.

Taylor is going to be really tall – close to six foot while Cassidy will be like her mother 5’6″.

Taylor loves to ride horses – Cassidy has a variety of interests –

but will sit for hours drawing off her computer and is really good!

I thought this to be funny – it brought a smile to my face!

We moved south to find more time to golf – warmer weather and being close to our friends!

Sherry and Cindy – we have been friends with the McBrides for almost 35 years.

They moved about 25 or 26 years to the Wilmington N.C. area – and we would spend time with them once or twice a year.

Then we moved to NVA and they would do the same.

Now – we are building a new home about 40 miles away from them –

and if the weather is nice – we golf once a week with them –

always on a new course – could be on the weekend or a week day.

They can and do stay with us and we do the same with them.

If our new home is not done on time and we have to give up the condo – they have offered us a place to stay.

FRIENDS! GOOD TIMES! LAUGHS!

This is what we have wanted to do for a very long time – it was too expensive in NVA and down here so many courses to choose from.

We both have a love to golf – one of Sherry’s highlights in golfing came with the day she broke 50 –

and it was a day she was golfing with her father!

A memory she shall always carry with her on the course. Now – she beats me! LOL

The view we have almost every morning when we wake up – the master bedroom has a big glass sliding door on her side of the bed – where all she has to do each morning is open her eyes and see this.

I see it each morning also – but I always am up before the dawn – have been that way all my life.

My favorite time of the day – writing my blog – sipping my coffee and watching the sun rise –

listening to the sounds of nature and just enjoying morning time.

Now the sun shines – causing a rainbow in the mist of the water fountain!
A peaceful setting we shall miss when we leave – but we have had by the end – nine months.

A memory we shall carry forward into the new home.

You can hear the pounding surf a half mile away –

We walk there almost every day –

the water fowl – geese – ducks – mallards – swans – otter – turtles – snakes

and really huge fish we can see when we look down onto the water.

Storms blowing in and out – rain and wind – nature at its best.

It would of been nice to have lived to the left of the picture – single family homes!

But – they were way too expensive – and the condos here – not enough space and no garage.

We have a storage unit – not a lot – but enough so that it would not fit.

The town houses here besides the condo’s – were out of our price range –

plus the one we looked at – needed a lot of work.

This is a beautiful area – one I shall remember –

We were blessed to have spent time here – but it also was expensive!

Papa’s World – golfing with friends at Carolina National – a Fred Couples course.

Buck Cindy Sherry – getting ready to tee it off!

We journeyed North to Bolivia N.C. to meet up at CAROLINA NATIONAL GOLF COURSE!

Twenty seven holes and a signature Fred Couples course.

Our first time here -and we are golfing different courses each week.

It was a Monday afternoon with 2:12 pm. tee times.

It was a great gold day – high 70’s – slight breeze – blue skies – white and gray clouds –

lots of sunshine and very good friends!

Game on – girls vs boys!

Cindy – teeing off – Sherry spotting the ball!
Sherry teeing off – note: BOTH of them always hit it straight down the middle!

They are so hard to beat – never in trouble – down the middle and hitting almost every green in regulation!

And – darn it – one will make the putt!

We really try to beat them – but the first nine – well it was not pretty!

All smiles – ready for the back nine! Time to pull it together! We got off to a good start – going up 2 after the first three holes – and then four by the fifth!
But they started coming back – we pared -they had a birdie!
Going into the last hole – we were up by one!

We got into trouble – they didn’t – they parred – we boggied!

Tied the final nine! Let this one slip through but we had a great time!

Drove to Oak Island – and found a BBQ place still open at 7 pm.

We have been doing this for years – guys vs. gals – always fun – but they are good!

PAPA’S WORLD livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – Memories from the last six teen months – Ocean Keyes – S.C. – new home.

On October 1st. 2020 – this became our new home for nine months!

We had no idea we would end up in North Myrtle Neach.

My friend would ask me WHY we choose there?

Well – the best answer I can give is I came across this condo –

on a site that listed houses and condos for sale!

I expanded the search area and this picture or one like it – came into view!

I showed it to Sherry and we decided right there and then we would rent it!

First – for three months – then we extended it to five months –

all because we looked and looked and decided it was just as good to build –

as it was to buy! We could have what we wanted and not upgrade someone’s home!

So – we made our choice in Cameron Woods – across the border into N.C.

It would be a brand new build and we set about making our selections –

and at that time we extended our lease until the end of June!

Which would be a total of nine months!

We tried very hard to stay in this area – but cost and being too close to the Ocean

played a big part in where we ended up!

We are with in four miles to a beach and six miles to another beach!

We can drive one half hour back here to North Myrtle Beach.

We are in a new development – and right in the middle of a dozen golf courses!

We are in the country but a mile and one half to a gas station and a couple miles to a Publix!

In November we signed our contract and made all our selections.

We are on schedule for a early June closing!

We will walk a beach everyday – which has been our dream – we have a community of neighbors we have already met.
Our new home – roof done – siding almost done – stacked stone done – doors and windows – done – plumbing done – electrical done – insulation done – dry wall to start and by the time this is published – will be done – as will most of the inside – outside trim – almost done – utilities – connected – we are almost there!

Papa’s World – golfing Magnolia Greens – home course of friends – beautiful!

Sherry and Cindy – they decided to walk the 18 holes – Sherry got a new pull cart!

I actually believe these 27 holes compare to the best in the area including Myrtle Beach!

On this day – the flowers were in full bloom and reminded me of Augusta!

Almost every hole was like this!
A view of the driving range from the outdoor patio of the clubhouse!
Sherry Cindy and Buck – having a beverage on the outdoor patio after 18 holes!
On one of the tee boxes – everything was blooming!

We have played this course many times over the years!

They have called this home for at least twenty years.

Having bought and sold and built here many times.

This is the main reason we came South to this general area.

Our new home will be about 40 minutes away –

so daily golf is available!

Sherry on the patio of their home that overlooks one of the large waterways on the course!
Cindy on the same patio of their home looking in a different direction from Sherry!
Cindy was to the left – Sherry to my right and Buck straight across from me – looking at the course across the water!

This is the second home they have built here – both in this water area and both had like views –

only this one is downsized from the other one.

Buck and I on the tee box about to tee off!

We – Buck and I – did our usual scramble – and we had a record for us – we shot a 39 with a double boogie the last hole!

If you are ever in N.C. just South of Leland and Wilmington – this is a public course – 27 holes – stop in and make a tee time – it will surprise you and you will love it – one of the best around the area!

HEALTH and NUTRITION fruits – vegetables – berries – omegas in a capsule.

Papa’s World – Rivers edge – golfing with friends – we finally beat them!

Cindy and Sherry – one will walk and then change up for the other to drive.

We started off in the rain – but the forecast said it would move on out –

and the sun and warmth would be there!

AND THAT IS JUST WHAT IT DID!

One of the views – we had to cross over here – but it was not a busy road.

Are there Gators here? YES THERE ARE!
Sherry Buck Cindy about to putt!

We played well – Buck and I – enough so that they beat us by one stroke the first nine and we won by three stokes the back nine. Do not be fooled by how close they made it – they are always right down the middle and second shot is either on the green or close to it! They are good when in a scramble!

We bought what is called the first tee card – we all have them and it allows us to play over 32 courses

at reduced rates – all are on the N.C. side of the border – and our new house is right in the middle!

Sherry going for the green on a par three over the marsh.
Cindy going for the green over the marsh.

I did not like this tee box as it was like a practice mat.

The only part of the whole course that they did this on.

You could not put a tee in – only if you found a seam.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World.

It was a fun day – and because it was cart path only –

it took us five hours to play and we did not finish up until 6:00 PM.

But – we finally beat them on the back nine by three strokes and it was hard doing that!

Papa’s World – just some random thoughts and pictures of the family Krohn.

The Krohn family and Sherry – granddaughters – daughter and son in law.

They have visited for almost a week.

The weather – bearable – low 60’s to low 70’s but with chilly wind.

Marcus and I took Bode out golfing on Monday!

He has pretty good form and Marcus is getting him lessons.

He is only six years old and I think the highlight for him is driving the golf cart! LOL

I told Marcus – you need to get him lessons plus doing cross country

He almost ran the whole golf course!

Taylor Sherry ( MorMor) Bode

They walked to the beach every day.

Most days I would drive the car down as we had all the chairs and beach stuff!

Some days – as in this picture – we all walked carrying the “STUFF”!

Daddy and Taylor – she is a little daddy’s girl!
Cassidy and Daddy – independent little spitfire – but very caring – for her brother and sister.
Bode and Daddy – all boy – trucks – tools – sports – running – full of energy – barefoot – coat less – teasing – BOY!

Yesterday was a full beach day – warm – sun – and kids in the water!

Too cold for me – but in the sun – hot!

Taylor – Cassidy and Bode – notice how Cassidy takes care of Bode!

Such a protective little girl – a heart of warmth!

We got to know one another through reunions

and have traveled to their home in Phoenix and them to ours before the pandemic.

We have maintained that friendship for the last ten years or so.

Here we are at the WALL in DC.

Reflections of the soul I call this.

Gerhard and Jennie – our son in laws parents

For the last 14 years or more – we have bonded with his parents.

Always visiting them when we lived in NVA.

They have come down to visit us in North Myrtle Beach.

In laws and friends – FAMILY!

Our little group get together to golf.

There are times we try to bring us all together to golf.

Wish it would happen more often.

But when it does – it is fun and guys vs. gals!

If we are not on our game – they will beat us! LOL

Papa’s World – New home – the build begins – living our dreams.

As the day begins at the condo – the build of our new home begins some six-teen miles away – in Cameron Woods at Ocean Isle Beach – N.C. We searched and searched – but all in vain as the cost to buy was equal or more than to build what we wanted!

Our view here I shall always remember – in all we will be here for nine months!

I captured this shot as a flock of geese were coming right at me before

rising up over the lanai and roof.

We decided to build – that way we would have everything we wanted

A single story – no stairs – covered front porch – screened in covered lanai.

Close to the beach ( four miles) in the country!

Close to golfing ( over 20 courses near by)

And with in 6 1/2 hours to travel back home

or family to travel here!

Materials for the new home – ground is ready – all utilities in and inspected – waiting for pour of concrete!
Forms and moisture barrier
Some view in one direction of neighborhood – I think in total maybe fifty homes will be here.
When done – a two car garage with pull down stairs and finished storage overhead.

We will have around 1900 sf. of heated space –

in addition to a 140 sf covered and screened in lanai

and a open 10 x 14 concrete patio.

There will be a covered front porch

and views of the neighborhood.

The back will be woods with no one building there

as it will be a conservation area.

We will be four miles to Ocean Isle Beach and six miles to Sunset Beach

A thirty minute drive back to North Myrtle Beach

and a fifthteen minute drive to Calabash

and a fifthteen minute drive to Shallotte.

All this in the middle of some twenty golf courses we will be playing!

The concrete is poured – and rain is now slowing up everything!

But – all the inspections have been completed

and our contractor calls us every Monday to give updates

and answer any questions!

The forms are out – concrete is in – framing will be next!
View of the garage and the woods behind the new build.

We drive over every Sunday – no one is working!

That way – if it is not raining – we can get out and look it over!

This will be our third house together building.

All three were unique and we have input on all of them.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – Ever changing life – Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach – friendships

Papa – walking from the beach to main street of North Myrtle Beach!

Along the way – we have friends – who after social distancing – come to visit!

And – we walk the gated community – through he gate –

and onto the beach!

The gentle surf of the beach – water and sand!

Our friendships go back years and years.

We all lived by one another – then we all moved away

but that friendship has endured time and distance.

Always from afar – but close when we make plans to get together.

Cindy – Sherry and Dottie
Jim and Buck – Jim and I played softball together in the mid to late ’70’s Buck and Cindy were our neighbors and they also knew Jim and Dottie!

We plan golf – card games and word games!

We drink a little beer – sing a few songs – do a shot – and laugh!

We would set up a get together every 4 to 6 months –

We lived near DC – Jim and Dottie Va. Beach and Cindy and Buck – Wilmington N.C.

Now we have moved further South

about 50 miles from Buck and Cindy.

It is easy for us to get together and golf every weekend.

Jim and Dottie are now the Northerners!

We all have taken up a new game – Pickle Ball!

This last time – we got together at our condo – played two days of golf –

and Pickleball has now become another game we shall play!

We all practice good health – Sherry – who is a certified Health Coach – leads the way!

She has her own website and for 15 years has been the one who encourages all of us!

http://www.sf.juiceplus.com HEALTH AND NUTRITION AT IT’S BEST!

We all come from WNY and SWPA area and are big Buffalo Bills fans!

Distance may separate us – but friendship is but a zoom call away.

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 – living our dream during the Pandemic – a year of blessings!

Our view from the condo in Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

This past year we have also had our blessings during the Pandemic!

Yes – we sold our dream home – BUT NOW ARE BUILDING YET ANOTHER ONE!

Yes – we left our family 450 miles to the North – BUT NOW THEY WILL BE VISITING!

Yes – we packed up Sherry’s office – BUT NOW WITH PHONE & COMPUTER –

SHE WALKS THE BEACH AND CONTINUES!

You see what I mean when we have our blessings!

Sherry’s new office!

We went to the new property after coming back from NVA

leaving the snow- ice and cold behind

and saw that they had the forms in ready to pour cement!

Then we walked the beach!

Blessings are where you put down roots!

Work is where you are and where you walk!

That is owning your own network marketing business!

The wind may blow – but there are many fine days at the office!

A year in which we have a pandemic but also a year in which we have blessings!

We explore – we walk – we play golf –

we do not miss the cold – we miss the people!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – Lasting Friendships – year blessed – all during a pandemic.

We spend time with family and friends – here are our oldest friends.

This is a stressful time this COVID!

But – we practice social distancing and quarantine – and test!

We make plans and also are sure of the above.

2020 brings a lot of smiles also.

Buck Cindy Dottie – speak no evil – see no evil and hear no evil!

Being with friends is special – you laugh – you talk – and you share sorrows.

Family is important to us all.

You SEE on Zooms –

You TALK on phones

You HEAR on both

You connect whenever you can and try to make plans.

Sometimes – COVID interferes

But you move on – test and return.

You greet each day with renewed hope that this will pass on – only to find it won’t!
Cindy Dottie Sherry

When it does become possible – you make the most of it!

2020 still has its fun times.

2020 – well – you make the most of it when you can!

You watch a little bit of the BUFFALO BILLS!

We all are from BILLS territory

we all were there for the run of FOUR SUPER BOWLS in a row!

And now – as we all moved South –

We once again are watching them!

Keeps us in touch!
We now are playing Pickle Ball and Golf and card games!

We try to play as much golf as we can now that we are in the South!

Our friends – Buck and Cindy are 45 miles away

so we can meet up halfway and play!

Cindy Papa Sherry Buck

Once a week since we have moved down here.

There are over 100 courses to select from!

Sherry and Cindy!

Walking the beach at North Myrtle Beach on our last get together.
