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.

Pap’s World – wishing Sherry a happy birthday!

We were born with almost the same birth date!

My birthday is 5 – 7 – 49 and hers is 7 – 5 – 49 !

We were meant to be!

So – I do not forget her birthday !

All these years – over 40 – she is as beautiful today as she was then.

Kind – smart – caring – giving – awareness – equal rights – compassion – god – church – community – and so on!

She is a one of a kind – a mother – a friend – companion –

Always on the move – walking – helping – heath and fitness.

We are always walking for health – staying fit – growing healthy into our autumn years.

MY BEST FRIEND!
SHERRY – HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

ADMIRATION – she is admired by her Team Generations that she formed fourteen years ago,

ENVIRONMENT – Walking she sees something that belongs in the recycle bin – she picks it up and places it where it belongs – always has been that way.

RELIGION – the family way – leading in church activities – volunteering – food pantry – book club – altar guild.

PEACE – firmly believes in obtainment of WORLD PEACE.

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

This is her to a tee!

Papa’s World

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 – A cool walk on the beach – 3.6 miles

Entrance to the beach

We took our wind breakers – it started off cool!

But – soon they came off and wrapped around our waists.

” It was a cool day” – the song running through my head!

It was one of those days where we just walked and walked!

Sherry – looking at the reflection on the water

You – know – some days are better than others –

Some days you just get lost in your thoughts –

The soothing sound of the surf –

The birds – the warm Sun –

SOME DAYS ARE GOOD DAYS!

When you live one day at a time –

you reflect back on each of them.

What is the meaning of that day?

Moving forward – one step at a time.

The wonder of nature – the stillness of your mind –

Thinking – wondering and appreciating each moment in time.

Walking – walking – walking

The shells lay crushed beneath your steps

The sky is changing

life is moving on with each step you take.

My glasses are tinted – the reflection is a reflection of time passing

No words – just thoughts – memories flashing by –

Your mind reflecting back what you see.

The upen air – the smell of the sea –

the noise of life continuing on as it has for eons.

Your look at life – your events unfolding as you walk.

You gaze forward realizing you have waled a long ways!
The end of the beach walk – WOW! 3.6 miles – just like that!

Without thinking – without knowing the distance as it past by you –

You have walked and walked – 3.6 miles!

Life is certainly good when all it takes is time – thoughts and memories –

It happens like that –

” ON A COOL DAY” as the song goes –

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!

Papa’s World – friends – laughter – life – blessed.

They say – you can count your friends on one hand – true friends

then you are blessed!

They also say – know not to discuss politics – religion –

but to make memories – laugh – hug – shake hands –

For true friends are rare

Keep them close – cherish them – love them

Friends can and should be for life.

Stories are told – memories are kept –

pictures cherished

life is living and living is life.

Yes – through the years – you stay in contact –

once neighbors – now apart by hundreds of miles

Yet – Happy hour Friday nights

Hours together again

Papas World – Social Media

I have some criteria that I follow when posting on Facebook.

We are constantly bombarded by WHAT IS WRONG on the media today.

Negative vibes – where are the good things to be written about?

Taylor Bode Cassidy
school canceled
a day with the grand kids

So – I decided a long time ago – I would share smiles –

Good thoughts – Family – Friends and day to day happenings.

Also a way to document my life –

To put it all down in journal type writings.

I try to stay away from politics – as I have friends from all sides.

Sometimes that is very hard to accomplish

But – I try –

You see – my life is in the later stages

I want the kids to read this after I am gone

I want them to know who I am

what I did and how I feel.

I hope I conveyed these thoughts through my blogs

I am happy with my life

And today I hope I brought us a little bit closer

SMILE – LAUGH – GOOD THOUGHTS –

You are only here a short time in the scope of all things.

Thank you for reading Papas World

Have a blessed New Year

Tom and Sherry
