Papa’s World – Just things in life!

Is there anyone out there that does not look at themselves in a mirror

and wonder
“HOW DID THIS HAPPEN”? LOL

Things in life – we eat to survive – but we also do by habits!

Evening sunsets!

Things in life : We look at the heavens –

wondering – seeing painted pictures.

The stars at night – the Moon and planets – clouds – storms –

the wonder of nature –

The questions – WHO WHAT WHY WHERE WHEN all form when looking toward the heavens!

We move about – we share thoughts – we adapt and we move on.

The things in life – ever changing – the World revolves –

We age – we think back –

and then – you are a senior –

Where did it go?

Our minds are a wonderful place – we see and then we re see!

Sometimes it takes a second –

but we mostly can tell!

Things in life do not always seem to be as we see them!

THINGS IN LIFE!

THINGS IN LIFE!

Sherry – CERTIFIED HEALTH COACH – SSC IN THE JUICE PLUS COMPANY

THINGS IN LIFE: The main reason I am alive today – I had a widow maker heart attack – 4 by passes.

7 1/2 years ago – she has led me on a healthy life –

a life that I follow because of her and her training.

THINGS IN LIFE: PAPA’S WORLD – WHERE FAMILY MEETS FRIENDS

Papas World -in the world of business – Fruits & Veggies!

Are you searching for a opportunity?
A way to work from home part time?

We were -13 plus years ago –

what was at first a way to pay for our purchase-

To doing The Business part time –

To retiring and have a supplemental income

To be able to travel – (read my blogs over 200)

And once retired to remain in our home

near our grand kids!

It is a very simple product – fruits – vegetables – berries –

put into capsules for you to take two of each everyday with water!

And research proven that it immediately goes into the bloodstream

repairs cellular damage – and boosts the immune system

along with other proven research facts!

Over 30 published researches from major institutions

around the WORLD!

And if you have a hard time swallowing
THERE ARE GUMMIES!
GREAT FOR CHILDREN!
And – as a bonus – children – ages 4 to 19
are FREE!
When a adult purchases the product
one child per adult purchase
gets it free for up to FOUR YEARS
as long as the adult continues!
And COLLEGE STUDENTS

The GUMMIES come in FRUITS – VEGETABLES and BERRIES!

We use them for snacks rather than candy !

Need a PROTEIN drink
a drink for breakfast – lunch or work out!
A way to cut fats – calories from large meals!
Then our two powered drinks
DUTCH CHOCOLATE
FRENCH VANILLA
I just add crushed ICE
a cup of Soy or Almond Milk
Water and whatever FRUIT
I want -in a blender
and it fills me up!
THE DRINKS ARE PROTEIN
GLUTEN-FREE NON-GMO
LOW GLYCEMIC
FIBER & VEGAN

We also have bars – to use as a snack or in place of a meal with the drink!

The bars are Protein – Fiber – Non-Soy –

Vegetarian – Gluten free –

Non Dairy & Low Glycemic!

The Published research says it all
NSA approved for pro athletes

So – how is the business and what to expect?

It all depends on yourself!

You can do it part time as we did for years

or – full time – it is your choice

but know either way – you have a support group!

You can follow this
or do this!
Or SHARE a concept of health and nutrition
much as you would a movie – a book
or a favorite vacation spot!

We started the business part time

to pay for our purchase each month

and then to get all our grand kids started

each of the six have taken Juice Plus either all their lives

or the majority of their lives!

We eased in and then saw the benefits

then we simply shared- first with our family

then our friends with the help of our sponsors!

The steps to success
and success is at every step!
Those whom you sponsor
because of their own effort
can pass you on the steps!
It is completely up to you
or them how to progress
You still get a commission
on their efforts either way!

The Juice Plus Business plan is fair-

It allows you to go at your own pace

and you never lose what you gained!

Once you have achieved that step

You do not go back down

and those that you sponsor as a partner

can progress above your step!

The cost of HEALTH & NUTRITION
less than a coffee at Starbucks!

The cost is less than that treat that you might buy

It really is affordable

The JUICE PLUS FAMILY

TEAM GENERATIONS!

livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – Great Smokey Mountains – health – team – bonding – Generations of Nutrition.

Sixteen gathered at a cabin located between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg –

They drove hours to get there – all up and down the East Coast.

You see – my wife Sherry is a Certified Health Coach –

and also a rep for The Juice Plus Company and has been for the last sixteen years.

My health is the reason I am here today and she has played a major role in that.

Every six months – a conference is held – one on the East Coast and one on the West Coast.

The title is JUICE PLUS + LIVE!

Living life to the PLUS – one day at a time.

What started as a part-time hobby – became a retirement fun job.

In those sixteen years – we have traveled the country – met so many fine people

who all have one major thing in common –

HEALTH and NUTRITION and in our case FAMILY GENERATIONS!

Thus the TEAM GENERATIONS was born – led by a mother and daughter –

Today it has grown and grown and the leaders now gather –

Gathering for JUICE PLUS + LIVE

For the last two years – the Pandemic has kept the gathering in one place down to a minimum

But in October – it will be back in full swing in Atlanta!

Eight thousand people, normally, we shall see, the Pandemic has kept them apart.

HEALTH and NUTRITION – SALAD IN A JAR!

This time – arrive on Thursday – leave on Sunday – fun – learning – games – all part of bonding.

Linda and Sherry – a little break time.

In October I’ll once again be going – driving Sherry and seeing old friends once again.

Education – seeing new sights and making new friends.

Thanks for reading PAPA’S WORLD
Team Generations – gifting our children and grandkids.

Papa’s World – retired – being healthy – a day in my life

What I do in a day of my life

I worked 47 1/2 years for the same company – prior to that – I started working when I was going into my Junior year of H.S.

I decided when I retired – almost 50 years of working – was enough !

Me – Sherry – Steve- Elaine – Cindy & Buck

It was important to maintain our friendships – stay in touch – here are four of our closest friends.

Buck and I – NWPA – golfing vacation

It was important for me to stay active and play golf.

Our six grand children – 5 grand daughters and then Bode .

Family is very important to me , when we moved to NVA – Sherry’s daughters followed us there . My two sons stayed in NWPA – we see them when we visit. In the 20 years – the Va.family has grown – and being there – we see them often if not daily. My family I grew up with is almost gone – I have a niece – great niece’s – brother’s daughter – great – great niece and 2 great – great nephews – everyone else including uncles -aunts are gone.

We have a little side business –

We live in a very expensive part of the country – in fact – this county has the highest income per household in the country. We moved here 20 years ago for work and then Sherry retired almost 7 years ago – and went full time into that business of health and nutrition. I followed one year later – and – we have been into this for almost sixteen years!

North Shore – Oahu

We travel – we play golf – we see the country – but we also maintain a healthy lifestyle – eating right – and continue to inspire people to do the same.

You have to remember – retirement means Social Security – if you have a pension plan – 401 K – and whatever else you have saved. PLAN ” B ” – if you want to maintain – you have to have a plan.

The three amigo’s for over 38 years.

Family life – friends – and maintaining health are important for us. All three – with church and God – are our mainstays of life. Giving – helping – praying and attending church – go hand in hand with our life. But – having fun – seeing friends – and watching the family grow – is to me what retirement is all about.

Cindy and Sherry

My wife is extraordinary – a natural born leader – a certified health coach – along as being a true friend to many. She is my crutch – the one I follow on health and nutrition and the reason I am still alive today.

A typical dinner meal for me

Eating healthy – sticking to the plan – and taking my nutrition supplement – and following what she says and does are my secrets to life.

The TOWER GARDEN – we grow inside and outside – year round.

We grow our own produce – April through October outside with two Tower Gardens – anything that does not grow on a tree! And then as you see above – we grow inside our garage from November through March. Always fresh and no pesticides – we know what we are eating and growing.

Team Generations

Our team has grown over the years – conference time is twice a year – all over the Country – as is the team – simply sharing by word of mouth. Families – children – helping each other – maintain that healthy lifestyle.

Sherry -Debby ( QMND – soon to be NMD )

Our goal of maintaining our lifestyle in retirement with a PLAN ” B” has been met and continues – growing year by year.

We would love to share it with you – it is not easy – life isn’t easy either – but you make it what you want it to be.

It is up to you – we supply the help – the guidance – we are there.

http://www.sf.juiceplus.com is where you contact Sherry – and look at all the different video’s – both on the health and business.

I am writing this blog today – my only regret is that SOMEONE out there did not share it with us 25 years ago – I wish they had – but we found it 16 years ago and our own PLAN” B” has worked.

Thank you for reading – and remember #livinglifetotheplus is real –

Papa’s World – retirement – loving life to the plus doing it my way.

Papa’s World – meet up in Berkeley Springs!

We had planned this for months –

A childhood friend – Bob and wife – PJ –

were going to travel through our area on their way back to N.H.

So – we arranged to meet here in Berkeley Springs , W.V.

fpr two nights and stay at the historic Country Inn.

Sherry Papa (Tom) PJ ( Pam) Bob

A year ago they had traveled with their RV and stayed a couple nights

at our home in Brambleton. Va.

Bob and I went to grade school and high school together

played football together and other sports.

He would stay overnight at my house and me at his house.

And – of course – many stories of beer on the hill sleeping out

with a couple of our other friends!

We have a lot of history together.

The historic Country Inn

We got together a few times at our five year reunions

And just nine months ago –

started the same health journey that Sherry and I are on!

And in that short time looking at this picture

I can tell it is working!

Another close by resort we visited and had dinner

They will go back to N.H. to their condo

having left their RV in Nashville at their sons home

and after Christmas – drive back and pick it up

and spend the next four or more months in Florida.

We also visited Cacapon State park and golf course

This course was lush in green and in really good shape

I wanted to just play it but we had no clubs with us!

So – we sat on the deck – watching players and drank a few beers!

Berkeley Springs
Deep in discussion!
Walking Cacapon
The girls social distancing from us so they say! At Lake Holiday!

We had a very good two days all be it way too short.

When good friends meet up

it always seems short.

Berkeley Springs – we had never stayed here but had toured it before

The weather got a bit chilly –

but we had fun.

60 some years later still friends

Papa’s World – “Who you goona call – GHOSTBUSTERS”! Fixing the island counter!

On our walk through – Sherry found the corner had broken off and they had glued it back on!

It had come as far as we could tell – from the vendor shop like that!

It had plastic wrap on it and she could feel the glue on the top.

You can see the crack line and then the amount they were cutting off.

The warranty said they had the right to fix it – either in place or they take it off and back to the shop!

If they took it off – we would be one week before they would come back!

But – there was the problem of dust and chips!

We did not want the house full of all the dust!

When they showed up – I talked to the crew and they assured us they could control the dust and chips.

They were suppose to take it off and do it off site.

All they needed was plastic which they put down – then they discovered they had no more plastic.

Wait a second Sherry says – I have king sized sheets!

“So who you goona call – GHOSTBUSTERS”

I got some bag clips – and they clipped the two sheets together – and the three of them went under the sheets – with a huge vacuum – and they began cutting and grinding!

It worked – king sized sheets – plastic down on the floor – hardly any dust or chips!
They had to cut both corners so they would match.
The crack has been cut off and grinded smooth and polished!
The opposite corner cut – grinded and polished to match!

If we were not happy -we could of made them switch out the counter top –

but all our counters match including the sinks in the bathrooms.

This was a quick fix – ten minutes on each corner!

The cracked corner is gone – we thought it looked great – and hardly any clean up!

So – we once again had great sevice on the repairs we have made a list of.

We avoided all the work of taking the counter top off and risking more damage.

So – “WHO YOU GONNA CALL – GHOSTBUSTERS”!

Papa’s World – Let food be thy medicine – let Medicine be thy food!

I did not always eat that way!

In fact I was a fast food junkie!

And at age 64 – it caught up with me!

I had a WIDOW MAKERS HEAR ATTACK!

Four arteries –

1 was 100% blocked

1 was 90 % blocked

1 was 70 % blocked

1 was 60 % blocked!

I should of died!

Photo by Trang Doan on Pexels.com

Had I known what I know now –

But my wife did and she changed our lifestyle 15 years ago

and that saved my life!

Photo by Buenosia Carol on Pexels.com

We started to eat healthy – went away from the fast – junk food

and started taking a supplement –

a mixture of fruits – vegetables – berries –

juiced – dried and the nutrients put into capsules.

This was called Juice Plus.

Sherry with grand kids & daughters

Along the way – we managed to get all the grand kids

on the supplement for free!

Minus Maddy who is in college and we still provide her with the shakes and capsules

There is no doubt in my mind that I would of passed away

had I not changed my lifestyle and taken this supplement.

On this journey of health –

Sherry has become a certified health instructor

through courses with Doctor Bill Sears and Doctor Pam Popper.

All of our family is involved

So – that is my story and I am now seven years past that heart attack

last year I had a nuclear test and everything is as it was after the by passes.

My blood work is amazing

and I now see my heart doctor once a yaer.

I have managed in the last 12 months to shed some 20 pounds.

I am now what I weighed when I graduated in 1967!

Papa’s World – Mother and Daughters – changing families – for better health

Debby and Sherry

It all started 15 years ago

Sherry found a better way to get nutrition & nutrients

from fruits and vegetables with research to back it up!

Three generations

They started by naming their mother – daughters team

“TEAM GENERATIONS”

From GIGI ( grandmother )

– to Sherry ( mother) to daughters

Tammy and Debby and their children.

Four generations – all on the road to better health.

Ella and Sarah
Bode Taylor Cassidy

The fourth generation – and when they have children – the fifth generation

All because Sherry said “YES” at NBC for your health

at the Washington DC convention center!

The TEAM GENERATIONS TEAM

It continues to grow – families seeking nutrition

better health

feeling great and less doctor visits

More energy

It has spread across the country

and now they communicate with ZOOM calls

and those that live near each other – gather in exercising

There are monthly exercise programs – group fastings

Challenges – and social group gatherings.

Mother and daughter bonding

It has become a FAMILY trip to health.

The oldest in college – practicing health

sending her care packages of healthy foods!

Trips to conferences on the East Coast and West Coast and Middle America twice a year
Team generations continues to grow one family at a time
Leadership in numbers
Before the pandemic – social gatherings
Making life fun with health
Team Generations began with a mother and daughters
Today it has grown into this – leaders from across the country

What started out as a way to eat healthy

and have our kids and grand kids eating better

has turned into a group of dedicated individuals

who share their experience of health and nutrition.

The OLD WAY HAS BEEN REPLACED
To a whole new life style

Papa’s World – Yosemite – El Capitan & Awanhee Hotel

I have to give KUDO’S to the drivers of Nevada and California !

They are courteous – mindful and after passing

go back to the inside lane !

It certainly is not like where we live as HORNS are always blaring !

El Capitan

You see it rising and rising – and wonder how anyone can climb it !

Now – the other night we rented a movie called FREE SOLO !

Where someone actually climbs this without equipment !

Just fingertips and toe holds ! CRAZY !!!!!

Sherry with back drop of El Capitan

Now – I will also admit – while I knew he made it – TRUE LIFE FILM !

I was not watching it as I would dream about it !

Or at the very least lay there and think about it !

But I am glad I got to stand there and admire this wonder of nature !

You can not describe the feeling – you must see it for yourself !

The beauty of the area is just extreme pleasure in looking around !

But all things must come to a end

and we were told another must see

was the Awanhee Hotel – Lodge !

Painting Awanhee Hotel – Lodge

We traveled on down to the village

where we explored and then to the Hotel

If you stop be sure to go inside both the Village store

and the Hotel.

The Awanhee Hotel

Made out of huge logs

and you can see how they left trees growing

without damaging them !

Inside the lobby

The setting is beautiful with the backdrop of cliffs and mountains.

I do not know the price or how much snow they get

but if you are a nature lover

then put this on your list !

This finished our trip to Yosemite

and we started back

a different route

for additional scenes !

Papa’s World – Yosemite – Bridalveil Falls – El Capitan

GOOD MORNING !

Traveling Yosemite in a day – really not enough time !

But – we made the most of it

stopping often –

A must stop
BRIDALVEIL FALLS
Trying to capture a close up

We parked and started the walk to the falls !

It was a lot cooler in the shade – 104 in the Sun !

Continue the walk – slowly watching each step – because of the rocks !

A much needed rest stop with the falls behind us.

It was okay walking but you had to watch your step !

Sherry – always a step ahead – asking ” WHERE ARE YOU ” lol

Rocks everywhere!

Of course I am the one stopping to take the pictures

and making sure I do not misstep !

However – after almost a mile – we made it !

Near the base of the falls

And there was a CROWD of people – standing in the mist !

I decided to stay back in the shade with Buck.

The Sun was torture –

and beyond those people and rocks –

you could climb back to the bottom of the falls !

BLUE JAY up near the falls

By this time the ladies decided it was not worth the risk –

to attempt to climb over the wet rocks

some people told them people were slipping

and falling on those big rocks !

One last picture at the falls

We decided to take one last picture –

Cindy and Sherry standing on the big rocks

just before they get all wet !

And Cindy said she would stand on a rock so she would be as tall as Sherry

Sorry Cindy – didn’t work ! LOL

Regroup and start the walk back down

Some parts of the path were smooth

and they were working on different bridges

Papa’s World – across the bridge – open air ! FOG !

GOOD MORNING

The high light of the ride on the open air top of the bus !

A ride at 45 MPH across the GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE –

in the wet FOG !!!!

THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE

We were going right along – and it was chilly !

The fog had not lifted –

and there would be a stop

to get off if you wanted too.

The highway was full of palm trees –

Excitement as we neared

Going across the bridge

And then we were on the bridge

the fog was lifting

but it still was damp and cold !

Crossing the bridge

We had done it –

on top of the World or so it seemed !

Cindy and Buck

Put this on your list of things to do while in San Francisco!

And yes – while on our way to the bridge

twice we saw DRIVER LESS CARS !!!!

First on their list – Arlington ad the Tomb of the unknown –

and the family grave site of JFK & Jackie !

We shall never forget

We decided to drive on this first day –

parking at Arlington National Cemetery!

Tomb of the unknowns
JFK and Jackie
grave sites

We did the tour bus –

where you get off and on !

The eternal flame
” ASK NOT WHAT YOUR COUNTRY CAN DO FOR YOU “

The grounds were quiet –

the birds were chirping

the solitude

Paul – Jo – Sherry

This was a must on their expectations !

JFK & Jackie

We explored all the family graves

then it was back on to the bus

and up the hill

stopping every so often

for explanations on different markers !

At the tomb

As we pulled in – the quiet was striking !

People walking –

going about in their silent ways !

The graves and markers
The tomb
Silently watching
The changing of the guard

It is a place to be quiet –

standing still

gazing upon a ritual

that has been going on since 1948

24 / 7

365 days of the year

THE TOMB OF THE UNKNOWN SOLDIER

We owe this all in gratitude

for our freedom

WHERE FRIENDS MEET FAMILY

Jo Sherry Paul

Next blog – final day – morning walk –

the streets of Brambleton Va.

OUR HOME

Papa’s World – more memories of the past six teen months – living life one day at a time.

Before the Pandemic and while in Florida – met up with very old friends – Lynda and Fred – going back some 45 years!

I knew both before I met Sherry – Freddie and I went to 7th. grade thru 12th. grade.

We met at a place that was half way to where they live in Florida and to where we were staying!

Great time with old friends. MEMORIES!

We traveled before the Pandemic – meeting friends along the way.

And – – we were careful – as were some more friends we met.

Almost seven months after the start of the Pandemic – we met up with Pam and Bob – in Berkeley Springs WV.

Bobby and I go back to grade school – friends for life.

Sports – a few drinks – camping out – running the streets – never anything destructive – just boy hood memories.

By the time this blog posts – Pam and Bob will stop in on there way back to New England.

They have a drive RV towing a car.

We are all safe – testing and vaccinations.( except Sherry who is allergic to the vaccine)

It will be good to once again relive memories – Freddie – Bobbie and I had growing up!

Many memories – friends – family and life in general. The journey living life one day at a time.
John and Nancy – members and friends form our church – Community Lutheran Church in Sterling Va.

Fourteen years we attended services there.

John and Nancy moved to Charleston about a year before we moved.

On our way back from Florida – just before the Pandemic – we stopped in and stayed – regaling in memories.

They gave us a walking tour of Charleston’s waterfront and historic district.

A few months after we moved to Myrtle Beach area – we met halfway in Georgetown S.C.

And – about a month or so ago – they visited us at the condo.

Friends – MEMORIES!

PAPA’S WORLD livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – Taxes are being done – my job is making dinner – eating healthy – yes my lady.

Today – I am making dinner while my wife does our taxes – I have the easy part!

Eating healthy has become a way of life for us going on almost 16 years!

In that time I have learned how to BAKE rather than fry!

I have learned low carbs – no gluten – low sugars – and GMO’s.

I have learned to lead by example – children watch and copy!

My life is far different than all those years gone by.

I WATCH WHAT I EAT!

The dinner I made – baked salmon – greens – one sliced egg – veggies – a little fruit and no dressing!

I have learned over these past 15 plus years.

I take it very seriously!

Well – you must also smile! Great for your mental health!

Living each day – I have to stay away from sugars as I am borderline diabetic.

I watch carbs more so that calories – carbs put the weight on me and turn to sugars.

We grow our own produce with no pesticides – knowing exactly what we are eating.
We make healthy meals and deserts out of fruits – veggies and berries.

We purchase from this company what we eat for health reasons.

Have been doing this for almost 16 years!

And – the taste – for me – is excellent.

Life is hard – food – not healthy food – is everywhere!

Commercial after commercial – radio or TV – is constant.

Billboards – advertisements – packaging!

Everywhere you look or hear is processed food.

Berries (purple) omega’s (orange) fruits (red) Veggies ( green) are my medicine cabinet.
Concentrated whole food – powdered – nutrient dense – encapsulated every day!
Yes – I baked dinner – I use no salt – no dressing – I do use onion flakes – pepper and a low sodium seasoning.

And when not doing our taxes – she makes healthy treats!

A shake a day seems to keep my doctor away!

Our lives changed almost 16 years ago – she became a CERTIFIED HEALTH COACH –

through the known children’s doctor – Dr. William Sears – author of 40 children’s books.

Health has become our lives.

Making healthy choices one day at a time.

Instead of candy and sweets – I chew on these – Gummy’s – fruit – vegetable and berries. Satisfies my urge to eat sweets!

Thank you for reading my blog – Papa’s World.

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY

FAMILY MEETS FRIENDS!

For my brain – omega’s – food for my mind and memory.

Yes – today she did taxes – today I baked dinner – together we live a healthy and balanced life.

Papa’s World – Spring has Sprung – the Beach got busy – and they are in the water!

Here is our before 9:am. early morning walk – a little more crowed but nothing not expected! Looking South to North Myrtle Beach from where we enter the access to the beach.
From the beach access looking toward Cherry Grove – a few more people – but not a lot!

But – this is the beginning of the week for Spring Breakers –

and we noticed traffic getting heavey.

We have found our way around and avoid the high traffic on rte. 17!

We take the side streets as far as we can – and one side street takes up to where we can shop!

Now – in the afternoon we decided to do a couple hours of a beach day – taking and carrying our chairs to the beach. Here is the same view looking toward North Myrtle Beach – a lot more people and a lot of people in the water. But we still had our own space – no one within thirty feet of us!
Here is the same view in the afternoon looking toward Cherry Grove! And – it will get more crowed as Spring turns into Summer with vacations! We are in the open space and avoid large gatherings which happen mostly toward North Myrtle Beach town center. A lot of young H.S. and college students gather on the beach there in a large group. You just avoid them as they will do what they do regardless!

Being here is still our dream – we will come back often as we like it here –

but also where we are moving too – no traffic – country quiet – we can walk –

and still be in access to the other two beaches!

The beach here is very wide – I have been told it is the widest on the Grand Strand!

PAPA’S WORLD livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – Sherry and I went to Eagles Nest to golf – a relaxing four hours – good course.

Eagles Nest – Little River – North Myrtle Beach.

We had stopped here over the weekend – as we have driven by it hundreds of times!

Two entrances and finally I just turned in and followed the road for about a mile.

And then we were there – EAGLES NEST GOLF COURSE!

What we found out later – was this is the longest course in S.C.

and maybe the longest I have EVER played!

The back tee box – if you play that – the course is over 8200 yards long!

And full of beautiful scenes such as these!

There are many marsh areas such as this – did not see any snakes or gators!

It was more like this most holes!

We were teamed up with a father & son.

We introduced ourselves – we had not planned on playing with anyone.

But – after the first hole awkwardness

It turned into a fun day!

A view down the fairway!

I had watched my wife and how she was hitting.

I noted that she was doing everything right except two things!

I told her to tee her ball up a little back in her stance –

and to always tee it up the same height.

She was coming over the top on her ball – still hitting it good but not as far as she has.

This green – she hit the cart path – this hole for her was 299 yards – after I adjusted her stance and tee height – she ripped one down the right side and it hit the cart path and followed it toward the green – we searched and searched where we thought it had gone – the two guys we were with found it! It was laying just off the green on this side along the cart path. It had gone 299 yards!

And – I might add – she beat me by FIVE STROKES on the front nine!

So much for me showing her what to do! LOL!

After I showed her the adjustment – with her ladies tee – she was out driving the rest of us!
And she continued her good play – she also beat me the second nine!

Just a word to our friends – Cindy and Buck – the ladies have to give us strokes from now on! LOL

They are just too darn good!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Before I showed her a new stance – moving the ball back and then letting her swing take it!

I did not get a picture after – I was too busy trying to keep up with her shots! LOL

Papa’s World – Lunch on the beach at Snooky’s and seeing DARTH VADER!

The view from the top deck and bar of Snooky’s on the beach – the other Snooky’s is situated on the ICW!

We decided after our attempt to walk the beach –

which was very windy and cold –

to drive back down the Ocean Blvd to Snooky’s!

Sherry and I brought Tammy and the little ones here when they visited.

Sarah and Debby at the table surrounded by heaters!

It was chilly out on the open patio.

We choose this because of the heaters and wanting to be out in the open

for social distancing.

Every other table was empty!

This was the last full day they would be here!

The four days have gone by so quickly.

We packed a lot into it – Mike is a teacher and could not come down.

Maddy is in college with her classes and in the middle of Spring Soccer.

Ella a senior in H.S. Debby – oldest daughter Sarah – youngest of the three – in 8 th. grade

We sat out there on the patio – when I heard Sherry exclaim ‘ THERE HE IS” pointing toward the beach!

She had read a article in the newspaper and seen the interview on TV.

A man who was dressing up as DARTH VADER in Myrtle Beach and walking up and down the beach

entertaining the children – with his Laser –

And he happened to be right here!

Sherry and Ella

Now Ella is a huge – huge Star Wars fan!

For her 16th. birthday as a present – we took her to Florida with us for a week.

And the highlight of that trip was her going to the STAR WARS park.

That was what she wanted to do forever!

DARTH VADER about to walk out on the beach!

So – they both got up – Sherry and Ella – and down the deck they went!

I went up on the top deck so I could get a clear picture of what was going on the beach!

Here Sherry and Ella are nearing DARTH VADER who is Laser fighting with a young boy!

She has Star Wars figurines from her youth – ever since she could walk and talk.

She has seen every movie – over and over again.

Ella and DARTH VADER!

This was one of her highlights of the entire trip to visit us at the beach!

And it was all by chance – we wanted lunch – we selected Snooky’s because it was close

And we knew they had heaters outside!

Papa’s World – Barefoot Landing – Crooked Hammock Brewery – Deb and girls.

We ventured out and drove to Barefoot Landing – to let Sarah shop!

That is what she wanted to do the most beside walking the beach.

Sarah – Debby – Ella discussing which shops to go to – just outside of the new Brewery – Crooked Hammock!
We had walked by here dozens of times – and were waiting for it to open up – at last – it was open!

But – we decided since it looked really busy on the inside and outside

We would pass on this trip and go to a place that was not really that busy!

So we walked around and came upon this alligator in the water – below us as we stood behind the railing.

This was my first time seeing one here.

There were signs for this and snakes –

And at first we did not think it real as it was very still until it moved!

Hoping when the little grand kids come – we can show them a “GATOR”!

Ella Debby Sarah

I actually like Barefoot Landing over Broadway on the Beach

which is in Myrtle Beach Proper.

We did do some shopping – well they did – I walked in – took a look around and went back outside to find a place to sit!

Papa – checking out the “BEER GARDEN” notice all the
GARDEN TOOLS” hanging on the wall!

Sarah loved it here – her place to be – store to store!

Papa’s World – in North Myrtle Beach a celebration with the GREEN – St. PATS

The IRISH came out in droves to celebrate and this bar was command central in the organizing of the festivities!

For the last four weeks – there was a on going struggle between the owners of the business’s

and the city council and the mayor of North Myrtle Beach!

A year ago the Covid 19 hit and everything went into lock down

The annual parade was canceled and places were deserted.

Many did not survive 12 months later!

A lot of store fronts are vacant!

The back and forth has been in the papers and on the local news!

The business were told they would be fined if they proceeded –

I do not know the inside story only what I read .

The parade was canceled even though hundreds of people showed up

with no masks and no social distancing.

Instead there would be a steady stream of golf carts

all decked out – business with bars – blocked off with yellow tape and orange cones.

The celebration would go on after one year!

Discounts and sales were everywhere – the merchants have been in a struggle for 12 long months!

We went to main street with our masks and stayed away – 6 feet from people.

Sometimes that was impossible.

Most of the bars are on one side of the main street!

We watched and took it all in – it was a happy feeling – even though we were aware of our surroundings.

It still was sad to see almost no one here even though the celebration was going on!

This main intersection would normally be crowded –

I really do not know just how they are staying in business!

Maybe – with Spring Break coming up – they will have customers.

A lot of people are condemning the celebration – but I do not!

We choose to walk over and see what was happening – maintaining a safe distance from people which was not hard to do.

We stayed away from the bars where most people were –

we found a place to sit and observe.

I hope that this was all worth it!

As we walked – we watched from afar across the street – the golf carts -the music and people spending money.
Across the street from where we walked.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

The IRISH came out – business once again on Main Street North Myrtle Beach!

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH – A CELEBRATION WITH THE GREEN!

Papa’s World – Our happy place – back from the North – walking the beach!

We had made our second trip back home to NVA!

It was cold – no snow – sunshine – seeing family –

Running errands and keeping appointments.

Arranging the clean out of our storage unit and moving it South

To Ocean Isle Beach storage.

Admiring the sunsets of NVA.

But – once again we set forth and traveled back to “HOME” in S.C.

Where we will be for a total of nine months until our new build is finished!

Sherry – videoing the surf and calmness of the Ocean!

Back to our HAPPY PLACE as Sherry calls it!

THE BEACH where we try to walk every day.

SUN- SAND – WATER – life is good.

Looking toward North Myrtle Beach!

We had always talked of one day being able to walk the beach every day!

I never thought we could make that happen.

But – then the stock market slid South last March –

Taking 30 % or our 401K with it!

On the positive side – our house gained in value!

We discussed it and decided now was the time to cash in on the home value!

We started the process and with 24 hours sold our dream home.

For way over the asking price and most of the furnishings!

We were now Vagabonds!

Free to go where ever we wanted to.

First for three months we would stay with the daughters – helping out!

Then we would head South where it is warmer and no SNOW!

And by chance we ended up here – in Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach!

Today – we are building some sixteen miles away

In Ocean Isle Beach – West of the ICW!

Sherry walking to the water’s edge.

Where a short ten minute or so drive – we can walk the beach!

Healthy living – eating ( I love Kale) and walking three miles a day –

in the sand – warm – listening to the sound of the waves!

All because of the stock market slide a year ago!

Papa and Sherry – our HAPPY PLACE!

PAPA’S WORLD – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – life with the three oldest granddaughters – growing up!

These three are anything but this!

They love playing games – competitive games!

They play sports – the two oldest – soccer – and one is in college playing

and the second – next fall will do the same.

The youngest is into dance – loves the arts – and wants to go to NYC!

When they were little – Sarah – Maddy – Ella with their father and mother.

All three love their Grandma – laughing with her and at her!

She loves to take them shopping – getting nails done and ear piercings! Here – Sherry – Sarah – 14 years old – Maddy – 20 years old – Ella – 17 years old – Sherry is 5′ 9″ tall – they all are tall!

We took Sarah and Ella for a week to the beach last summer –

We took Maddy to swim with the Manatee’s for her 16th. birthday

We took Ella to Disney Star wars for her 16th. birthday

And now when Sarah reaches 16 – she wants to go to NYC and Broadway!

I will sit that one out – her mother can take my place!

Maddy has made the leap to college – now in her Sophomore year

as a Freshman she played in 13 games at the University of Lynchburg – Va.

And has maintained a GPA – over a 3.85!

She just played this past weekend – having one assist –

one barely missed assist and one barely missed shot on goal.

They won 2 to 0!

Mike Debby Ella

Ella will finish her H.S. soccer this Spring –

She had two colleges to pick from and choose Randolpf College in Lynchburg Va.

Just across town from her sister and they will compete against one another!

Maddy Ella Sherry Sarah

Sarah is all about fashion – no interest in soccer at all!

Although when little – she played as well as her older sisters!

She loves to dance in competitions when younger and shows.

Her goal is one day to create fashions and design – produce movies – acting!

All three are like this – beautiful on the inside – smiling on the outside – living life to the good.

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 – back home now is Ocean Keyes – beach – S.C.

Papa – walking the beach – after spending Christmas in NVA!

When we moved 21 years ago – from Western New York –

to Northern Va. my thought was we are now in the South!

We actually picked up another four to six weeks of better weather

on either side of winter!

We liked the area – going into Washington DC on a regular basis.

We purchase three homes while there – two that we actually built.

We had most of our family follow us there.

But – it still got cold and three times –

an accumulation of snow greater than in all the 50 years we lived in the snow belt!

You can change your looks – but mother nature does what it wants to do!
Although I am not going into the water – 2 days before New Years eve – people in the water on North Myrtle Beach!

Now – we are calling this home until our home we are building if finished

some time in the next 4 to 6 months!

The first thing we did the next day after returning HOME – was do our walk on the beach!

Home has a different meaning now – and we have become comfortable now here.

Enough that when you have that yearning to go back home

visions of what awaits you run through your mind!

We both have always been drawn to the surf – beach – water and sand.

While dating almost 40 years ago – we spent a week in the outer banks

with my brother and some of his friends.

That is when our bond for the ocean became a fixed state in our minds.

Our Vacations revolved around different trips with our children

to beaches up and down the East coast!

It was a fun time in our early life together – the kids remember and have carried on the tradition of beach vacations!
Sherry – walking while running her internet – network marketing business – http://www.sf.juiceplus.com

Home is where the heart is – and while we could not find a home here –

we are building one close – 14 miles away at another beach address –

OCEAN ISLE BEACH in North Carolina!

It is a 30 minute drive North of here – so we can often come back to walk!

There are two beaches there within 4 to 6 miles –

Ocean Isle Beach and Sunset Beach!

Home is where your heart is – and now our hearts are in the deeper South!

Where warm is Sun – no snow – ice – and 50 plus degrees every day!

The call of the beach – our hearts are here!

Papa’s World – a cool early morning walk on the beach!

There are times that we walk early – before 7 AM.

It is a quiet time to walk –

a time to just take it take in!

Life comes at you and never stops!

You and me are just along for the ride.

We can make the most of it

and when we get off

our legacy can continue to the next generations

hoping we made a lasting impression

in that all to be short ride!

How many have stood here before you?

How many have viewed the view?

Walking – thinking – talking together!

Early morning to clear out the mind –

A time to reflect – to plan.

A time to see what lies ahead

knowing that this will be here tomorrow

and the day after that many – many times!

Yes – walking early – hearing the sound of the surf –

the warm feeling of the Sun on your back or face.

A walk on the beach – a walk through time – a time to reflect

Walking – listening – solitude – but being together – sharing moments and thoughts -for it is here that ideas are formed – problems solved.

AN EARLY MORNING WALK ON THE BEACH!

Papa’s World – Living a dream – Ocean Keyes – South Carolina!

The back ocean side entrance to Ocean Keyes!

It was by accident that I found this place while searching for a place to live after selling our house!

I came across a picture of the view from the Lanai and we fell in love with it!

This is situated in North Myrtle Beach and we had no thought of coming here!

The plan was to find a home to buy or a lease –

planning on only being here for five months!

But – after searching and searching and visiting numerous homes – condo’s

And the housing market going up every day- it became apparent to us –

that maybe the best way was to find a model and build it our way!

Where we are staying is the building at the very beginning of the small lake – top floor – four stories -middle!

We found that we could build for almost the same price that we would buy –

and not have to do any renovations!

So – we extended our stay here until the end of June!

And hope that our build out of four to six months

would allow us time to enjoy what we have here!

From our condo – is 6/10 of a mile and we are standing on the beach!
There are six pools here – a tennis – pickle ball court – a work out gym and a community center!

We walk the road every day past the pool straight to the beach entrance.

Cross two roads and are in the parking lot of Avenue six beach entrance!

Standing on the beach after a 12 minute walk!
Early morning view from our Lanai – with views from both the master bedroom and the living room!

Papa’s World – One final beach walk with friends!

Dottie Sherry Jim

They were leaving mid morning for their trip back to Va. Beach

where they have lived for a number of years.

Our other friends – who live 50 miles away

had gone home the night before

as appointments awaited them in the morning.

We have been getting together for the past 25 years

when we all moved away

having been friends prior to that for at least 10 years.

The beach – as it always has – called us to walk one final time!

Jimmy

For years and years we took beach vacations together

raising our families

Jim and I played softball together back in the late 70’s!

Now the little ones are all grown up

and have little ones and big ones of their own

Grand children – the years have passed

but the love of the sand and surf remains!

Beach life – Boggie Boards – Wave riding with tubes – Sipping a favorite brew

all things we loved to do – but I no longer ride the waves –

I still sip a brew – and I still walk the surf!

One last walk on the beach – just as we have done countless times before.

Life has been good to all of us

we still get along and get together

friendships last and last!

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!

TEAM GENERATIONS – THE BEST IS YET TO COME!

HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!!!

Papa’s World – In his own words – Jim Martin – how I lost almost 100 lbs.

Jim Martin at 350 lbs.

I first met Jim some years back – his wife Claudia is a close friend of my wife Sherry!

Jim is a very large man – standing 6’5 ” of taller!

He loves to cook and always was making BBQ for his employees!

Claudia was interested in what Sherry was doing for her health.

Then – Jim became interested.

He sent me this email – I had no idea he was writing it.

It is such a story of health and a journey for a individual

who one day said enough is enough!

IN HIS OWN WORDS – JIM MARTIN!

 My name is Jim Martin, and I am 65 years old. I live in Reston, Virginia, I still maintain a full-time job.

Heaviest Weight: 350 pounds

Current Weight: 260 pounds

 I struggled with my weight my entire adult life. It led to binge eating and weight gain. Before trying Juice Plus, I had done yo-yo diets my whole life. My weight has gone up and down 50 to 80 pounds over the years, but nothing ever stuck. 

Before Juice Plus, a typical day consisted of a lack of sleeping of no more that 4 to 5 hours a night and grabbing either a breakfast burrito with an apple juice or a chicken biscuit from a drive thru. I would go to work at my incredibly stressful sales job from 7:30-4:30 and get little to no movement at work. I would always eat out for lunch and pick very unhealthy options—sometimes I would even get dessert (cookies) with lunch!  After work I would come home and eat dinner around 6:30 pm and sit on the couch until it was time for bed. Before bed, I would usually have ice cream or another dessert. Sometimes I would wake up and get a “midnight snack.” I was literally eating around the clock.   

The first time I heard about Juice Plus was almost a year ago. I was not into fitness at the time, but back then I thought Juice Plus would help me lose weight and promote a good immune system. However, after years of putting on weight, I started learning more about it and decided I wanted to give it a try and joined the “Shred Your Way” Facebook group.

My turning point came on January 6, 2020 with the “Shred Your Way” Sugar Shred Challenge, No sugar for 10 days.  As a result of completing this challenge, I have completely removed sugar from my diet for the past 11 months. I have no sugar cravings or desire to eat sweets as I did in the past. This all happened two months prior to the COVID lockdown and I was stress eating like crazy. It was a Monday morning and I stepped on the scale that I had been avoiding for months. After I read it, I just said, “That’s enough.” Something had to change.

My goal when I started this journey was to be in better shape than I was when I was 45. Back then, I was 260 pounds and less than 20% bodyfat. From the start of this journey to get healthy, I told myself that I wanted to be in better shape in the next year than I was in the last. 

I found that adding Fasting, Healthy eating and Walking to my journey

I loved it so much, I added the Fasting (Zero Fast), Food Monitoring (MyFitnessPal) and Walking (Fitbit) apps to help me stay on track. It has been a huge help in my journey. Tracking the fast, steps, and foods It helps me to see trends, and with that I can make adjustments.  I love being able to look back and see how I have done. The Shred Your Way Facebook group has also been a great source of motivation.

I currently follow a 16:8 fasting schedule, walking 8 to 10 miles a day, and eating about 1500 to 1800 calories a day, while trying to keep it flexible. Most days I end up following 17:7 Fasting, 25,000 steps and 1600 calories. I change my fasting times to suit my lifestyle. If I want to go out and have a big dinner with my wife, I will just do a longer fast leading up to it, so I stay in a deficit. And some days when I am hungry, I will break my fast at 13-14 hours (minimum of 13 hours to be considered fasting). I listen to my body and hunger signals. That is what I love about intermittent fasting—it is all about flexibility. 

The first few mornings I started fasting I was so hungry, but honestly by the second week my body had adapted well. That is part of the reason I have been able to do this so long (coming up on 7 months). It is not a struggle for me to follow the plan.

Aside from the weight loss, fasting gives me freedom from food, walking gives me the movement I need and Juice Plus give me a healthy immune system. I no longer feel like food is my source of comfort. I can focus my thoughts and feelings more. I also did change my overall diet. I discovered tons of extremely healthy choices. However, that is another writing exercise.

Here is what I typically eat in a day:

Breakfast: Black coffee, breakfast cereal (Ezekiel or Sola brands, no/exceptionally low sugar) blueberries, raspberries, almond milk, and chia seeds.

Lunch: Arnold whole wheat bread or a Mission brand low carb whole wheat wrap, turkey or ham, mustard, lettuce., tomato and Kettle Brand avocado and Himalaya salt potato chips.

Dinner: Taco Bowl (steak, brown rice, pinto beans, salsa, cheese,) Kevin Brand Chicken entrees with steam veggies.

Snacks: Mixed nuts or, protein shake (1G or less sugar) or apple or protein bar (2G or less sugar)

Dessert: 1oz70% Dark Chocolate

I feel completely different now that I added fasting and walking to my Juice Plus daily routine.  I no longer have a need to eat wasteful and harmful foods like sugar. Before, I would always eat a huge lunch and then be worthless for hours afterwards. Now, I experience the mental clarity that comes from eating the right foods, fasting, and walking. I am tracking all my calories in MyFitnessPal because I wanted to stay in a deficit, which was key for weight loss. I aim to eat 1,800 calories each day. I walk 7 days a week. It has been great.

These three changes contributed the most to my weight loss success.

Change 1: I gave myself more than a year to reach my goal.

By taking a longer-view approach, I do not get discouraged by little missteps. I still have plenty of time to reach my goal. When you set a short timeframe to reach your goal, you can get discouraged if it does not happen “fast” enough.

Change 2: I focused on healthy eating at first.
I’ve done diets before, and when you change everything in the first week, you drain yourself of willpower and end up falling off the wagon.  I just focused on finding healthy food choices that minimize or eliminate SUGAR. SUGAR is the killer of any plan that includes weight loss or a good immune system.

Change 3: I do not get discourage… focus on the big picture

Life happens, and if I get down on myself for being human, that is not going to help me in the future. So instead, I give myself grace and understand this will happen. I acknowledge it and move on instead of making myself feel like a failure.   I could barely walk a mile without resting, now I can complete a 10K in less that two hours. It takes one step at a time.

I hope my successful journey can help other archive the life changing experience this has been for me.   I think the most rewarding part about making this change has been the mental clarity and focus that comes in the last few hours before breaking a fast. I do not feel mentally drained. But the weight loss has made the biggest difference. It is going to allow me to live an active life well into old age. If I had continued putting on weight, I would have been in extremely poor health within the next five years. But now I feel strong, and I do not feel deprived.

The new Jim Martin – at 260 lbs.

As a side note – Claudia Martin has literally folllowed in Jim’s footsteps.

She now walks with him and has lost 55 lbs. !

Papa’s World – Walking the streets to beach golf cart parking lot!

The view back toward the community of Ocean Keyes where our leased Condo is.

We have two ways to do our WALK each day.

First – we can take the car – with our chairs and beach stuff

Drive the half mile to the parking lot access.

Where it costs $2.00 a hour to park.

Or – we can walk with or with out the chairs and beach stuff.

The beach and Ocean are just beyond the horizon

This day we decided to walk – leave the chairs and beach stuff behind

and walk the streets – explore a little more

and cross the main street to another beach access.

We walked about a mile North on a side road and then crossed the main street to a beach access we had never been to before

The walk took us along a less traveled street that runs

along side the main street.

Then after 15 minutes of walking we turned toward the Ocean.

And to our surprise –

this parking lot was restricted to GOLF CARTS ONLY!

Seems like there are hundreds of golf carts here.

You are allowed to drive them on any street

that has a speed limit of 35 MPH and under.

You are allowed to cross the streets

that are above that 35 MPH and I assume at red lights only.

Except at the beach access parking lots.

The parking lot – this one did not have bathrooms

or a place to wash the sand off your feet.

We try to find the ones that have both.

Rather than sit inside – we walk – explore –

drive to other areas

and enjoy our new found area.

Usually after dark we watch Netflix for a hour or so.

And once again walking back another route

upon arriving back at the gate to our community

we are greeted with the new Whie Swans and the ducks and Mallards.

Papa’s World – making DREAMS into reality!

We all have thoughts of success

Buying a house

Owning a new car

A second vacation home

And then you realize – the years have passed you by

and you still are dreaming

AND YOU ASK YOURSELF WHY?

FIRST : Write that dream down with a DATE!

We tend to overthink and then think some more

but writing it down with a DATE

It then becomes

A GOAL!

SECOND: Take that GOAL

and break it down into STEPS!

Now you have before you a road to follow!

A road to follow has become a PLAN!

You are no longer just thinking about it or talking about it –

You are following what you yourself have set out before you.

Once you start following your own PLAN

You have devised a ACTION!

One – you did yourself.

You are the one to depend upon

You are the one who set a goal

You are the one to take the steps

You are the one to form the plan

You are the one who is taking action.

YOU HAVE TURNED THIS DREAM INTO REALITY!

And CHARACTER – will draw like people to your purpose.

WE HAD A DREAM AND HAS NOW BECOME A REALITY
