Papa’s World – COVID TEST – before we go back home! NEGATIVE!

Social distance – being careful – getting ready to go home for Christmas – keeping the faith we are doing this right!

We have been walking – staying away from groups of people –

social distancing – knowing that we wanted to spend Christmas with the family!

We went on line – Sherry is the tech one –

and through CVS – set up our information –

scheduling a test time!

It was not that hard – and the CVS was maybe 3 miles away!

We drove to the CVS test site – we were the only ones their at our scheduled time!

We pulled up to the window much as you would for a bank –

The lady spoke through the window and asked for our insurance – medicare and ID.

We passed them through and she typed in all the information

and in the window drawer – she gave us back each a brown paper bag

with our cards inside plus the material we needed to swab our own nose!

In case we did not understand the written instructions and pictures on what to do –

She explained step by step as we went through the procedure!

It was not difficult at all and we did our own samples.

Just put the swab up as far as you can go and rotate for fifthteen seconds

as she counts off in each nostril!

No fuss – no mess – easy – a cave man could do it!

After we were done – the swab went into a sealed vial with liquid it it.

And put back into a sealed plastic bag with our information in there.

I then got out and deposited the two bags into a medical box –

wiped down the box with a sanitizing wipe they provided and drove off!

It was that easy and covered by our insurance.

We were each provided with our own personal site – to see the results!

Our tests came back in just two days and were on our own personal web address!

This was a relief as now we could journey home –

see our family for the holidays

knowing that we were Covid19 free!

Papa’s World – Conway S.C. – Old Churches and a walk through history!

Sherry walking the historic section of Conway S.C.

We like to explore and I love old towns and history of the area!

We had completed the River Walk and then headed onto main street.

This being Sunday – there were no stores open!

Which surprised me as there were lots of people on the River Walk.

A cool little garden and fountain just off main street!
I assume this mural has a part of the history of this town!

Walking – taking in the sites – and then we both noticed just how many old

historic churches were here!

Maybe that is the reason for stores being closed on Sunday?

This church was too big to get in one photo – and had been built in the 1800’s!
The first view you get of this church walking up to it – the previous picture was the center of the church!
The right side of the church – this church took up almost the entire block!

We also looked at the first church that was built here

Thinking that the people had outgrown it!

The first church built in the early 1800’s!

A beautiful stain glassed window!

Thsi was a very solid built building

but I think it ended up being too small

So they constructed the second church!

I want to go back and spend more time reading the grave stones!

We also walked by one other large church that sat on the river-

and had drive up docks for boats

and signs for people who came to church using the River!

This was also as large as the big one here.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

we will go back someday and explore more

and will make sure the stores are open!

I love these large old Oak trees!

Papa’s World – after scrubbing down the Lanai – we treated ourselves – 3 hours on the beach!

Our little escape for three hours!

We did a job that Sherry has been wanting to do – wash the walls of the Lanai down by hand!

The Lanai is screened in and has a vinyl siding – which with storms – gets dirty.

So – with soap and water and some cloths – we cleaned it all down

Took us about two hours –

and then we treated ourselves to BEACH TIME!

A few people were out – being this was the middle of the week. It was in the low to mid 70’s!
Looking South on North Myrtle Beach – we decided to walk North – toward the pier two miles away!

This day – we did not spend all the time sitting – but walking for most of it!

We walked to the pier two miles away!

We try to walk three miles a day – and as much of that we can on the beach!

Sherry – while walking – will do her network marketing business with her phone!

http://www.sf.juiceplus.com

This has always been a dream of mine – walking in the sand and surf every day!

Always a view in the sky – dark clouds contrasting with white – and then blue skies – and sunshine!

We had never walked all the way to Cherry Grove – point pier –

And – along the way we collected shells for a church group back home!

Beyond the tall buildings – just visible – is the pier – so you can see just how far we walked!
Tidal pools forming behind me as I walked through the surf. The water felt warm – and some pools we had to walk around as they were above our knees!

This day – just to walk was relaxing – cleaning the Lanai –

A day in the sun – living life to the plus!

the nutrients of food we eat –

good wholesome food!

The Pandemic is all around us – all around the World –

The abnormal has now become the Normal.

In Team Generations – the priority is eating healthy!

One family – one day at a time – one child – bringing health into their lives!

This at the best of times is very hard to do –

fast food – process food –

snacks – candy –

calories – fats – oils – carbs!

Celebrate – a way to combat – unhealthy living – in red – daughter Debby!
Conference – a way to learn – to talk – to listen – TEAM GENERATION !

Regional’s and semi yearly conferences – comparing notes and experiences.

TEAM GENERATIONS – THE BEST IS YET TO COME!

HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!!!

Papa’s World – Counting our blessings – a year in review – family – friends!

Christmas 2019 – the start of the year in review!

All the grand kids and their parents with Sherry and myself.

When this picture was taken – the only thing we had planned

was for her 16th. birthday – we would take Ella to Florida with us for a week.

She would go to Hollywood studios to see Star Wars!

When each grand child turns 16 – we do something special with them.

Maddy wanted to swim with the Manatee’s and we did that!

Growing up in the ’60’s – we never imagined taking trips with grandparents – mine were all gone by the time I was 16!

As the year progressed – plans were made and soon – we would leave for one month in Florida.

But first – quality time with the young ones.

I will for the rest of life see this as MORMOR and Taylor – walking hand in hand to church!

Although now she is only ten years old – she comes up to just under Sherry’s chin.

She is going to be very tall and loves horse back riding!

2019 was also the year we had friends from AZ. come to visit – and accomplished crossing off everything on their bucket list to see in DC. This is a reflection of Sherry among the ghosts of the Korean War.

Many friends visited over the 21 years we lived outside D.C.

We acted as tour guides – and in the year past – we toured almost every facility

there was to visit including the Capital Building which was a first for us!

The year in review – blessings will continue in the next blog!

We also venture to outside Raleigh – N.C. to visit her sister.

Here – we went to a farm that had what are called BELTED COWS – GOATS & CHICKENS!

They are white with a black belt around the middle!

Never heard of this and never saw this before!

Standing outside the pen with the goats – chickens and cows at the BELTED FARM!

Papa’s World – Grand ma’s day out with Daughter and Grand Daughters!

Maddy 20 Ella 17 Sherry ?? Sarah 14

Sherry – who stands 5′ 9″ with our three oldest grand daughters!

Now – Maddy is 5 ‘ 6 ” Ella is pretty close to Sherry and Sarah is 5’ 6 or 7″

Sarah has started to get taller like Ella did – and I think will be taller than Sherry!

Plus – one of the twins – Taylor – well she is 10 and comes up to just under Sherry’s chin!

Must be the SWEDISH heritage coming out!

Debby – our oldest daughter – and her three girls

They all went into town to get their ears pierced again!

All except Debby!

Every time she is with them – laughter prevails!

She showed them how when you put our car on cruise control

The radar activates – and the car will almost steer itself!

She took her hands off and it went around two slight bends in the road

They were amazed and then all burst out laughing

as a message came across the screen in the car

“PUT YOUR HANDS BACK ON THE STEERING WHEEL”!

About to get their ears pierced!

A trip with grandma – “ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS GRANDMA – IS YOU !” says Sarah!

Well maybe a few other things! LOL

Our plan is to spend three days with them – and then head back to Tammy’s

as they have school and jobs.

Then we will all spend Christmas day together at Tammy’s

at least that is the plan now and could change during these trying times.

Ella and Maddy – Ella may be playing soccer against her next year in college! She has to select between two colleges.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Grandma and Grand Daughters – LIFE IS GOOD!

AT OLD TOWN – WINCHESTER VA.

Papa’s World – saying so long but not goodbye – THE TEAM

She went to Bear Chase Brewery –

Team Generations leaders were there to honor her.

“MAMA BIRD” as she is called affectionately!

Sherry – Mama Bird

They all could not be there because they are spread out

up and down the EAST COAST!

That is what she has done as the leader of TEAM GENERATIONS!

Debby ( QMND) Julie ( QSC) Mandy ( QMND)

They came because in less than two weeks – we leave the area

To start a new journey – they did not say goodbye –

but in this NETWORK BUSINESS

They said “SO LONG UNTIL WE MEET UP AGAIN”!

Lori ( SSC_

Who lives in the Outer Banks –

somewhat close to where we are going

The beauty of TEAM GENERATIONS SMILES!

They ZOOM often – these team leaders

they lead by example – healthy living.

Linda (QSC) Debby ( QMND) Shawna ( QSC)
Shawna – (QSC)

The leaders of TEAM GENERATIONS – because 15 years ago –

Sherry ( Mama Bird) said yes to the health and the Business.

Changing all these lives and their families.

Julie ( QSC) who has sold and installed over 100 Tower Gardens to schools
Julie and Carly

These ladies have promoted healthy eating and growing

ZOOM calls are now a major part of the internet business.

Stepping up to and beyond to bring health to families

and a way to supplement the income of their families

All from home – over the internet and phone.

That is why a GOODBYE is not needed

Just a SO LONG until next time.

Mandy ( QNMD)

Leading by example –

family – friends and healthy nutrition

The HOW – product – health in bottles. 30 fruits and vegetables.
Debby and her mother – forever grateful – bonded – over health and nutrition
Fifth teen years ago – saying “YES” to these has lead to below.
The leaders in TEAM GENERATIONS

A simple YES led to this and beyond

leading and showing the way

Not saying GOODBYE

But ” UNTIL WE MEET UP AGAIN”
TEAM GENERATIONS ( MAMA BIRD)
UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN – A MEMORY FROM THE TEAM FOR ” MAMA BIRD “!

Papa’s World – I choose to be me – #livinglifetotheplus –

Now that I am 70 years old ( young ) – time to reflect -just how did I get here and where am I going down that long ( sometimes) journey of life !

My niece Terri and my brother Mike – with me in the middle

When I was born – I already had a brother ten years old at the time and a sister fifth teen years old . So – I was like the second family – and it stayed that way until I was four plus ten months – and then Mike came – shortly before that – my sister – who had married – gave birth to Terri.

My early childhood – was spent with my Grand Ma – who lived with us at that time – she was in her late 70’s and early 80’s. She was Penn. Dutch – and they had twelve children. They lived on a farm and grand pa – was a big man. The story goes during the depression – he would carry meat and flour to the neighbors to help them out. There was no money – but he had a kind heart. I never knew him as he passed before I was born in ’49 – he was hoisting a pig up to the barn rafters and suffered a heart attack. There is a family history of heart attacks on this side – all his sons suffered the same .

David and Nora Aiken – my grand parents -who lived ” Down Home ” in Pa.Corsica.

She cared for me while my parents worked – my Mom at Alcas – now known as Cutco – in Olean N.Y. and my dad as a supervisor in the oil fields for South Penn oil company , known as Penns. oil.

Tom at around age 2 or 3.

It was at this time my mother would not let me take my shirt off outside – she said ” People will think I am starving you ” ! You could count every vein and bone on my chest ! Today – well – you would be hard pressed to find either ! Where did that go !!

My great – great grand father and grand mother – Frank Schick and Sara.

I do not know much about them – other then when young – my grandmother Nora – left home and followed the lumber camps through out Pa. cooking meals and that is where she met my grand father David. But – I am told that they were Pa. Dutch .

My father – Clarence Russel Fitzsimmons

My father – he would take me to work with him when I was young- to the oil fields – I still remember the smells and the sounds. The chill air and all the big bull dozers. The tool houses that they pulled around and me riding in the seat next to Pat Murphy. Then there was Junior Greenman – and a host of other colorful men – the mud and Earth chewed up by the tracks of the dozer. My dad passed early in my life – when I had just turned 19. His family came from Ireland – County Tyrone – so I was told. A tale of FIVE brothers who came here in the mid 19th. century. Seeking fame and fortune, only to find that IMMIGRANTS such as they were – looked down on – and treated very badly – in that aspect – not much has changed – will we ever learn ?

My mother – Mary Aiken Fitzsimmons who lived to be almost 98 !

Mary – as most people called her – MOM to me – she was small but feisty – she ruled – talked soft – but I listened to her – we all did. She outlived my younger brother and my older sister. She wore a ball cap that said – ” I’M THE BOSS ” ! But she also could bake – pies – buns – cakes and home made bread ! She was known all over for that. And she also was known to a LOT of people. She would sit on her front porch – and all day long – as cars went past – horns would honk- windows come down and a big ” HELLO MARY” would come forth. If I were there – I would ask her who that was -she would just say ” OH , SOMEONE , THEY ALL DO IT ” !!!!

My brother in law Bill and my sister Donna & me.

My sister Donna – she also helped to raise me – my Mom would walk my brother and me down the street at 5:45 am. We would walk the long steps up to their apartment – and lie down in the little room set aside with a couch. Here we would sleep another hour until she would wake us up to eat and then off to school. Bill – my brother in law – was the town Police chief – but also drove all over the East coast delivering meat for White Hawk Meat Company. One time up near Boston – he was at a truck stop – and in came a crew from a radio station. Looking for a human interest story. They interviewed him – as he was both a Police chief and a truck driver – and that show aired on the radio – he got a copy of it – Larry King did the interview ! My mother outlived both of them.

My brother Roger and me.

Growing up – I had one hero in life – my brother Roger, I looked up to him and tried my best to be just like him. He was my idol and ten years older. He went away to college and became a national ” WHO’S WHO” – from all over the USA. He went into the Navy in OCS- and was a LT. during the ‘NAM war. He never came back to our home town to live – I moved into his bedroom after he left for college. I still remember all the things he left behind – on the walls – the club room he and his friends had in our basement. In his later years – after his wife passed – we would spend our Winters with him in The Villages in Florida – where this picture was taken. Hero’s and idols – I had one – and it was him.

1967 – senior picture – Tom Fitzsimmons

My life as I know it – I am writing this now because I am the last one living. All have now gone before me. I needed to get it down for my sons – grand children – great nieces and great great nephew. My brothers children and their children. A history of growing up in a little town called Eldred in NWPA. In the mountains so lush and green.

I am in the autumn of my own life – and the main purpose of this blog is to record the memories I have. As I have been writing daily for the past 8 years – only to have them somewhere in face book land.

Tom & Sherry Fitzsimmons

I owe this all to my wife – Sherry – who encourages me to write it down as she often says. So – with that being said – going back to the beginning –

“Where does it say we have to “ACT” our age ?”

As long as it makes me happy and I’m not hurting anyone –

” I WILL ACT WHATEVER AGE I WANT TO ” !

Besides – I learned a long time ago – when you are married –

” IT’S NOT FOR ME TO QUESTION WHY – BUT FOR ME TO DO OR DIE ” !!! LOL

Enjoy and remember #livinglifetotheplus

Papa’s World -The many faces of Juice Plus & Team Generations !

A quick way to DETOX

The concept of Team Generations came 13 years ago –

That is when Sherry introduced Juice Plus to our daughters.

Tammy and the twins
Juice Plus babies

First was Tammy – who attended our first in house education

on Health and Nutrition with Pamela Sue –

one of two of our mentors – Sari being the other.

Pam is from the Big Island , HI.

Sari is from Atlanta Ga.

OMEGA’S GARDEN VINEYARD GARDEN
The four staples of Plant Based Nutrition
Tested FIVE times for pesticides
From growers monitored
by the
JUICE PLUS COMPANY
Now over 36 published researches
in Medical Journals
Tested by major institutions
all over the World

Tammy was always first and foremost a healthy eater

Shunning fast food – eating Natural and Organic.

She caught on right away and signed up

as both a customer and a partner in the

Juice Plus Company.

Today – all three children are Juice Plus babies

meaning in the womb – she took the Juice Plus

Thus the babies absorbed all that nutrition the whole time !

Tammy Taylor left Cassidy right

They were born early by choice – as Taylor was taking all the fluid

She was growing while Cassidy was not

So at 32 to 33 weeks –

they came into the World

They were small – barely over two pounds with Taylor 13 oz.more !

But – there were no problems – they were perfectly healthy

and today continue as Taylor being bigger

Cassidy is normal size

But I think Taylor is going to be like her MORMOR ( Sherry ) 5 ‘ 10 !!!

Debby ( eldest ) Sherry
She was suppose to be there
but her youngest became ill
and she had to turn around
and go back home

Debby was sad – she had missed the education

But in talking to Tammy and Sherry –

She just knew what a opportunity she had

in helping her entire family getting healthy.

They had so many doctor visits

being ill all the time

That had all changed in the first six months

they started the Juice Plus road to health.

Today – all three daughters and her husband & herself

Zero times to the doctor in the past 11 years for sickness

Taylor ( 9) & Sherry
Taylor is going to be tall
like her MORMOR
Swedish for Mother’s Mother

Today – Tammy is a Sales Coordinator –

while Debby is A QMND

Qualified National Marketing Director

Sherry is a Senior Sales Coordinator

All are living their dreams

Debby has passed her mother and is almost to the top as a NMD !

Debby has worked from home the last 11 years

Running her Juice Plus Business

While Sherry worked part time –

Debby did full time.

Sherry has retired early

and is full time in the Juice Plus Business

All three run the JPB from home.

No overhead

No inventory

And travel the Country every six months together

Promoting healthy change for family’s.

All this for a yearly fee of $50.00

You send in the order on your own website ( part of the fee)

The JP company packages-ships and collects the $$

from the customer and pays you a commission

and deposits it monthly into your own bank account.

Tammy has opened a second business

A high end Kids Consignment shop

while still running her Juice Plus Business

Today Sherry leads the team –

Called TEAM GENERATIONS

Named so that it stands for
Mothers – Daughters – grandchildren – great grand children.

As each Generation arrives

It is with the knowledge of adding insurance

in living healthy – as best we can.

With the research – we know we are on the right track.

A MOTHER AND TWO DAUGHTERS

have had a effect on hundreds of family’s

all over the country.

Helping people one day a time.

Papa’s World – when birthdays come in THREE’S

Taylor Cassidy Tammy ( mommy)

Ten years ago – they were born – early –

Taylor was growing and Cassidy was not

So I think just around 32 or 33 weeks

The doctor decided now was the time

and they were so tiny – 3 lbs. something each

and Taylor bigger – so it has been for ten years!

Tammy

Tammy – she struggled at first –

and – to be sure the twins were all right

she got to come home first

then – the smallest – Cassidy came home!

Then three days later – Taylor.

There was nothing wrong with either one

they just had to make sure since they were so tiny

that they would eat and be okay.

Today Taylor – who I think is going to be as tall or taller than Sherry!
Cassidy – she loves her MorMor ( Sherry) and asks almost everyday when we are leaving.
Taylor and Cassidy

So the same but oh so different

day and night

Taylor laid back

Cassidy always busy

The birthdays were not planned

it was all in the hands of the doctor

and so now we have THREE BIRTHDAYS!

Celebrating three in one day
Birthday celebration comes in THREE!
Taylor “BEAR”
Cassidy – the little dynamo
The twins
When birthdays come in THREES!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World
