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 with son in laws Mike and Marcus.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

I will continue MEMORIES of the PAST SIXTEEN MONTHS in the following blog.

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.

TEAM GENERATIONS: Helping one child a day to eat healthy with fruits – veggies and berries.

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!

Papa’s World – visit to the new build – roof is done – siding half done – insulation this week!

Every Sunday we go to Cameron Woods where our new home is being built – no one is working on Sunday so we can look it over outside and inside – and our builder calls us each Monday to give us a update. That way we can ask questions if we see something and get answers without meeting in person.

Here is the front – siding in entrance way is done – roof shingles done – back and side siding half done.

The right side of the house – back to front – breakfast nook – kitchen – window laundry room and then the garage.

At the rear will be the covered – screened in lanai.

The covered – screened in Lanai with the back door and then the open patio. To the right is the breakfast nook and kitchen – all windows.
To the right – covered Lanai – open Patio and windows of the sun room – then the master bedroom.
The rear – Master bedroom and going to the front – master bath – bedroom 2 and then bath two and then bedroom 1.

They have told us we still are looking at early June for closing!

Keeping fingers crossed!

We are in the condo until end of June – we have a storage unit 3 miles from the new build.

If needed – friends have offered us a place to stay.

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!

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 – walking the beach – no buildings here – just wide endless beach – Cherry Point!

Debby Sarah Sherry Ella

We decided for their last beach walk on a cold windy day –

to take them to the far end of Cherry Grove to a place the local’s call Cherry Point!

To get to the beach – you must park along the road and then walk through this covered path!

The path to the beach is overhanging tree limbs with lots of shrubs and bushes.

Once you walk through there – you are greeted to a wide expanse of beach to the left.

The right goes back toward the houses and pier.

The view to the left and almost low tide!

It was cold and windy – and we wanted to walk way out as it seemed at low tide you might be able to walk to the other shore.

Here you can see a few brave souls – walking – and the wind was really blowing!

Ella and Sarah – laughing and trying to stay warm in the blowing wind!

We walked maybe a half mile – and decided enough – it was just too cold and so windy!

One last picture with Ella – Debby Sherry and Sarah before heading back to the car.

I told Sherry – when it gets warmer and is low tide – we must come back and just see if we can walk across the bay!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World!

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!

CHILDREN CAN BE FREE!

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!

We arrived – The Make A Wish Tree area –

along the ICW in Little River S.C.

at the Vereen Memorial Garden!

The girls were excited – because we told them – their cousins had been there

a couple weeks prior!

We showed them the sea shells they had made and signed!

So they went about finding shells!

So may shells to look at!

They took their time – looking with the help of their parents and Sherry!

Casey Kristie Olivia

Now it was time!

Spread them out on the bench – string them – and write your wish!

Found the spot on the tree – where their cousins left their names and added theirs!
