Papa’s World – another beautiful sunrise and then a cool day of golf!

Waking up to this every morning – at the end of June – nine months of this – memories for a lifetime!
Golfing with our close friends at a golf course way out in the country of N.C.

We awoke to a beautiful sunrise – a bit chiily –

But the forecast called for low 50’s but Sunny!

It makes a big difference with hardly any wind!

As the Sun continues to rise – clouds form but are suppose to clear away!

I have come to accept here in S.C. – that the day changes dramatically

the higher the Sun gets in the sky!

So – you prepare for the day – getting a mental image in your mind

dress in layers – drink your coffee or tea

and know that the day – will turn out okay!

Another painted canvas by nature!

So it goes – sunrise – sunshine – cool but no wind – warmth.

A fine day to be alive and a fine day to golf with friends!

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!

LASTING FRIENDSHIPS – YEAR BLESSED – ALL DURING A PANDEMIC!

Cindy Jim Buck Dottie Sherry Papa

We now all play golf together after a couple years ago Dottie decided to try it out.

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

Now we also play cards – sip a beer – and listen to and sing to music!

We have always had a great time – we travel – explore new places

We play gals vs guys in golf and the gals are good!

This last time we won by I think 2 strokes!

Papa’s World – One of the many days in our life – living one day at a time!

A dose of this – a spoon of that – a sip of this – GRATITUDE!

In our life together – for going on almost 40 years –

we do everything together – we are best friends –

if no one is around – we still go on adventures together!

On our daily walk – we sometimes see the three swans!

Our days are almost never planned – unless there are errands to run –

friends to meet to golf –

but other than that – we explore!

We are taking in everything we can until our new house is built!

We also are exploring the area where we will live –

And it is nothing to drive a hour or so to see something we have never seen!

The beach at North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

We walk almost three miles a day –

we did back in NVA until it got cold!

But – here – the sun warms you up even though it is in the high 40’s!

Walking the beach is part of that three mile walk every day!

6/10 th of a mile and we are standing looking at the above!

A day in our life – we live each day as it comes!

Always active – even making a garbage trip to the dumpster a walk!

We also can walk the half mile to Walmart if we choose.

Living life to the plus one day at a time.

ONE OF THE MANY DAYS IN OUR LIFE – LIVING LIFE ONE DAY AT A TIME!

MY SITE: livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – Living life to the plus – one day at a time – blessed that I can!

Another in the series of my year in review blogs – 2020.

Well – where do I start – I have lived another year – in most cases – I wouldn’t be here!

2020 has been a very strange year – but – here I am – living through it!

For those that do not know – seven years ago I had a heart attack!

Not your normal one if there is such a thing –

but they called it a “WIDOW MAKERS” one.

I ended up with FOUR BY PASSES!

and walked out of the hospital 52 hours after surgery!

We have grand children – and I am blessed to see a picture such as this!

So – a year in review of 2020 – it is scary – frustrating – wonderful – satisfying –

nerve wracking – joyful – nail biting – and any other adjective you can throw in there!

But – here we are on another adventure – after selling our house during a pandemic – living our lives one day at a time!

You never know as I can attest – just what the day before you can bring!

Now – we are building a new home near Ocean Isles Beach – N.C.

And being careful – wearing our masks when we are close to people and inside!

I see no sane reason to refuse to do that because it infringes on your liberties!

Come on you folks – who protest this – it is a common being nice sort of thing!

We old folks – well we have been around and wish to continue to be around –

so just wear them – it will not hurt you – and it may save me from covid19!

There – that is my take on the pandemic!

It is indeed a strange year – one of challenges but joy when you see your family!

ZOOM is now a big part of that – staying in touch with virtual meetings –

church and religion – shopping and home delivery!

And the times you spend with friends after quarantine!

We stay safe so we can enjoy friends – getting tested – being careful –

2020 has brought many strange things into our lives –

Who could imagine every day walking the sands and surf of the beach!

2020 – with all its quirks – and I am living to see it!

So – you see – I count my days as blessings – no matter what comes before me.

Yep – happens to me – but who cares!

In this past year – we have become more and more dependent on each other.

We have become closer to family if that is at all possible.

2020 has taught me things –

2020 has in a way – been a comfort for me in that we are once again

on a adventure – every day – planning – looking – exploring!

The sun rises with the one you love!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – Living with kids before we left – vagabonds – traveling!

Here we are – in our early ’70’s – homeless – living with daughters –

until we pack up and head South

to North Myrtle Beach S.C.

First thing we do as vagabonds – is play some golf!

We made it a point – have fun – play golf – and enjoy the warm weather while we can!

Here we played one of our favorite courses in NVA!

Deer are everywhere – and are so tame – even when you hit toward them

they do not move!

You have to be pretty good to hit them and we are not good! LOL

Our view from youngest daughter and husbands home!

We would have almost three months to wait before we left –

pack up and go –

to a place we had never been and found by accident

OCEAN KEYES – North Myrtle Beach

every day a 1/2 mile walk to the sand and water of the beach.

First – we had to downsize – made dozen of trips to the Salvation Army – sold almost 95% of our household furniture with the house ! And got ourselves a storage unit – one big enough to walk in and through all our “STUFF”!

I thought I would MISS STUFF but I don’t!

I have moved on – just as we were about to do!

But first saying our goodbyes – these are what I will miss – FAMILY!

You never get use to that – WHEN YOU THROW IT AWAY – REMEMBER THERE IS NO AWAY!

That is why we are back home for the Christmas time – for three weeks!

And we will come back again in late Feb. and early March.

They will come down to visit –

And our life will go on!

We will walk once again with them – we will share laughs – and in Jan. hope will bring them to us!
We will meet up once again with old friends – laughing – exploring –
And true to form – PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING! LOL!
ICE CREAM and a SMILE!
This one texts or calls everyday her MORMOR & PAPA!

FAMILY – fun times and memories made –

FUN TIMES and memories to be made!

NEW ADVENTURES AWAIT FOR THESE TWO – as we a\have traveled the World together and now they live only 40 miles from us!

Our friends of many years – Buck and Cindy – have lived down in N.C. for years

and now – we golf every week together.

Family is back home – friends are here!

Yes – the Sun set of a family home – the night before we left – rain shower cleaning the roadway – vagabonds!

We are blessed to have these places to stay –

and now – we have begun our new home build

and once again – it will become a FAMILY HOME!

Once again in the South – we will be together – family – as always – you never throw that away!

Papa’s World – The FIRST of many days to come!

As we have already begun our seventh decade

We have set out once again on a new chapter of our lives.

We have been together since mid 1980

and married mid 1982!

That my friends is a lasting friendship!

For she is my best friend and partner.

We arrived to this view for the next five months.

The Atlantic Ocean is .66 miles away in Myrtle Beach – North!

Just beyond the horizon you see here.

We already have been there twice in three days

and have walked the shortest route.

Here is the view from the lanai back into the living room –

dining area and kitchen.

With two bedrooms and bathroom out of sight beyond the kitchen.

The lanai is over 200 SF

and the rest of the condo is 1200 plus SF.

We have all we need – and two elevators right outside our door

We are in the top unit – no one above us

and as far as I can tell – the unit below is empty!

Guest bedroom number one –

Two twin beds and share a bathroom with the other guest bedroom!

I have been using that shower as it is a walk in!

And as you can see – the golf clubs –

they are the occupying ones in that room for now!

We do have a bar set up –

both coffee and cocktails on the lanai

and for future guests!

Guest bedroom number two

Queen size bed –

I actually like this bedroom

and if it had a king size bed

would of considered it the master

as it seems larger!

She now has her printer set up in there and her files!

She is able to take her internet business

anywhere we go!

The master – king bed with a view –

sliding door right out to the lanai!

Our own master bath and walk in closet!

Right off the living room

and comfortable bed!

Our new chapter has started

page after page

we have already eliminated areas and places.

We venture out to explore

we know our limits and expectations.

And we are having fun doing it!

The first of many dinners on the lanai.

Our first candle and cocktails!

The first sunrise over the pond.

The first night with the moon rising over the pond.

The first of many days to come!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World
