Papa’s World – our very first Christmas Holidays in the new house – lights – and tree.

View from the street – just a few wreathes – garland and small lighted- decorated tree on the front porch.

Sherry wanted to keep it simple this year – I have all the decorations stored over the garage.

So – she climbed up there for the very first time ( she is not good with heights or ladders)

And was surprised how I had organized all the big plastic tubs of decorations.

I had put down a rug and lined everything stacked up all around it!

Easy to get to and open up!

My favorite spot to sit and sip my first cup of coffee for the day!

Keeping it simple – all the lights are on timers and batteries!

They run for six hours and shut off!

It has been too chilly to sit out here in the mornings – in the high 20’s and low 30’s!

Unusual for down here.

But – it warms up in the sunshine and we also get days in the high 60’s to mid-’70s!

The three Swedish horses were made by our three oldest granddaughters – MADDY – ELLA and SARAH

We decided some four or five years ago to forego these big bulky green trees!

They were big and bulky and went into a big zippered bag – that as I was getting older –

too heavy and bulky to lift up and place on the shelf.

So – we bought our bare-brown colored what I call our “CHARLIE BROWN TREE”!

It all comes apart -folds inward and into a long slender cardboard box!

It is not heavy and stores easily!

We also went to the WOODLAND ornaments – winter furry little things and people!

There are many sentimental ornaments that have meaning for us on there!

Just keeping everything simple for this first year in the new home.

PEACE – firmly believes in obtainment of WORLD PEACE.

HAPPINESS – always smiling – always laughing – always exuding a happy feeling.

Papa’s World

Papa’s World – Sherry’s happy places!

When ever we are on the beach – she is drawn to the water – wading – watching the surfers.

The beach draws her – to let off stress and a quiet place to walk – the sounds of the surf – the warm waters.

With friends – out and about – exploring the world with these two – every couple years we plan a break.

Buck and Cindy are our close friends – we moved into a house next to them 36 1/2 years ago –

and had known thenm before that. We get along and enjoy much of the same things.

Cindy is very active as is Sherry – always on the go. They walk together when we are around.

Now – our new home is about 40 minutes away from them.

We try to golf once aweek or go out to a show or dinner.

Family has and always will play a part in our lives. Sherry now is the oldest – and they all look up to her.

Here is Bode in front row with the five grandaughters behind him.

She reminds me so much of her father – tall – slim – smile – always on the go and a born entrepreneur

He always was looking for a way to make money and she has that also.

Not afraid to stand up in front of people and talk.

And they played golf just alike!

I became very good friends with him before he passed away – he told me many things promising I would not repeat them. All had to do with the War and I shall keep that promise I made to him.

I repsected him that much – it was a bonding moment for him and me.

Sitting on the Intercoastal waterway – just her and me – watching the boats and having dinner.

She loves our new area – back in NVA she would take dozens of visitors on tour guides into DC.

She is a leader – a natural born one at that!

And now – our new home – close to the beaches and the ICW – close to golfing and close to friends –

A place for FAMILY to visit and room to have them.

This is her happy place once again – walking – meeting new neighbors –

exploring and in a area that does not have the freezing ice and snow.

The new lanai and her putting her finishing touches on it!

These are but a few of her happy places – places she feels most comfortable in.

PAPA’S WORLD livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – My blog site – 362 followers – from around the World – awesome!

Write happy thoughts!

Write about family & friends!

Write about each day in my life that I live!

You see my friends – in 2013 I suffered a heart attack!

Called ” A WIDOW MAKER” I should not be here!

http://www.sf.juiceplus.com MY WHY!

It is with in mind – I record our lives one day at a time –

hence my blog: livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

In a little over one year – thanks to my wife Sherry –

I now have a following of 362 plus followers!

Of which I only know four of them!

The rest are from all over the USA and the WORLD!

Screen shot on a normal day – I never though this would happen – but I guess projecting good thoughts – happy family life and adventures of two 70 plus year old’s must appeal to people!
Sherry and Papa – (Tom) living our life one day at a time. Each day I am alive is a blessing! I do not take it for granted.

Sherry is the driving force behind my blog –

” YOU HAVE TO WRITE AND PUT IT SOMEWHERE – A PLACE WE CAN FIND – WHEN YOU ARE GONE”

That is the reality and I am okay with it!

I write for family – I write to record for future generations so they know who I was!

Each day I open the site – answer the comments and push on!

I include lots of pictures – they all tell a story.

Each day I start out not knowing what I will write about

I see a picture I have taken – a event we did – or where a day has taken us.

Then – I start – so far I have scheduled a month ahead in stories –

That way – is we are going someplace – all I have to do is share it to face book!

On here – it is automatically scheduled!

My hope and desire is to bring inner peace to those that read this – and to see – when adversity hits home – when death knocks on your door – there is a life beyond and each day is a blessing – one that had it gone the other way – well – I am happy it didn’t – and that is going to be my legacy – living life doing it my way – blog!

Papa,s World – Brook Green – Night of 1000 candles – near Pawley’s Island-S.C.

The night before we came back home to N.VA. – we drove 45 minutes South

Near Pawley’s Island S.C

to “BROOK GREEN”!

( and we will go back in warmer weather – to see it again in daylight!)

Huge Oak trees – with hanging lights – almost from the top!
Reflections in the water of lights!

The whole place – hundreds of acres – is dressed up in colored themes –

and over 1000 candles lit by hand!

Bronze statues are everywhere!

Some of the 1000 candles lit by hand!
Candles and lights – everywhere we went – a different theme – and colorful lights!
There were food trucks and a tent set up with drinks – hot chocolate – coffee and tea as well as water – soft drinks and beer!
So many different areas lit up – hard to capture them all!
You had to stay on the paths – and after dark – you could easily get lost in the maze of light!
Hanging moss lit up!
Paper lanterns lit in red and white colors!
Like fire flies in the sunset!
Sculptures with light reflecting on the water!

There must be a lot of volunteers to do all of this!

And – we only saw part of the park –

there also is a zoo here but was closed!

Papa’s World – Good thoughts and smiles!

Today – I share smiles – good thoughts and positive feelings!

We are following our new dream after 14 years.

Learning and using people’s names!

That is a tough one for me even though I have a good memory.

Sherry will introduce me and I just seem not to retain it!

But – I am going to try harder!

Today I carry this in my pocket –

and the darn thing has a mind of its own.

All f a sudden I will faintly here a voice and I look around.

Sherry just laughs – my smile for the day – it is YOU!

Lo and behodl – I pull my SMART PHONE OUT –

and someone is talking – could be a video – or someone I do not know.

Anyway – it provided a smile and laugh at my expense! LOL

Willie Nelson – part of the famous country singers –

who called themselves “THE OUTLAWS” –

says it simple and true –

Which brings a smile to my face

and good thoughts in my heart!

YEAH – on my bucket list of UFO’S – Loch Ness

and BIG FOOT!

Now – another blog sometime – or did I already write one?

I did see a cluster of UFO’S and have no idea what they were.

But – I would love to see a BIGFOOT – not up close –

but to verify in my own mine they are real!

And YES – after my sighting of lights- I BELIEVE _

As MUELLER would say –

“The truth is out there”!

You know – there is truth in this – enough said –

SMILE – YOU’RE ON FACE BOOK!

Been together 39 1/2 years –

Married 38 plus years

and now – we are on our next adventure

Time to buy the CRAYON’S! LOL

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

where everyday is a SUNDAY VIBE DAY!

Smile – laugh – and have good thoughts and feelings!

Papa’s World – LOOK ‘EM IN THE EYE !

When we are out walking – we meet lots of people –

on the trails – roads and sidewalks.

I always make eye contact – or try to.

A lot of people will just look down or off to the side –

That is until I am the first to greet them !

GOOD MORNING !!!!

I will say GOOD MORNING

as we almost always walk then-

90 % will then look at you and reply – smile –

as if they were just waiting for you to greet them – almost shy !

My daughter in law Trisha
and my youngest son Shawn
A SMILE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS !

It is almost like they do not know how to greet you !

And if you wait – they just walk on by !

That is why I decided to always be the first !

It is then that some people will not respond –

and I wonder what kind of person that is –

or what kind of life they lead –

I hope that they remember my smile and greeting –

hoping that just maybe it made their day

a little more enjoyable !

SMILE – think good thoughts

I think taking that extra step brings a happy thought to myself.
