WHERE FRIENDS MEET FAMILY

Papa’s World – when I write – I express my thoughts!

My thoughts and words – relate to my own life

and that of the people who are dear to me!

Marcus Tammy Debby Mike Sherry

My family – whom we are close to –

They were all there for me when I had my heart attack

almost seven years ago – A WIDOW MAKER –

I was told by the staff!

You should not be here they said!

BUT – you are the most healthy heart attack victim

we have ever had in here – they also said!

YEAH – I WAS –

but I had done all the damage for 40 years

until I switched lifestyles

and started my journey to health

and was guided by my wife – SHERRY –

who became a Certified Health Coach

through courses by Doctor William Sears

and the teachings of Doctor Pam Popper

and a few doctors from the Cleveland Clinic.

Ella Bode Cassidy Taylor Sarah – my WHY!

Now – today – we practice healthy eating

and have passed it onto our children and grand children

Everyone in these pictures – follow our example.

We are partners in The Juice Plus Company –

have been for 15 years!

And so have these kids – as long as they have been alive.

Growing – listening – following – example –

all part of our life together

Living by example

Tammy and Debby

These two believed in us from the start

and you can see in them the healthy way of life.

This day we went hiking on part of the Appalachian Trail

only a few miles from THE DIRT FARM BREWERY!

Yes – we do relax – a three mile hike up and down the trail.

Then here to sit outside in Social distance

and allow ourselves to have a drink as a treat.

I sometimes go weeks and months

without a beer – I really do not like wine

or the hard stuff- only light beer.

This day we had all the grand kids except the oldest who

is in college at The University of Lynchburg playing soccer.

Bode is the only boy and he adores Ella

Yes – when I write I express my thoughts

in both words and pictures

putting them down – and saving them for the people

you see in this blog for generations to come.

GENERATIONS

For – you see – Sherry’s team – countrywide –

is called TEAM GENERATIONS –

for the very reason you see in this picture

passing on health to all the GENERATIONS to come.

Our legacy – which started 15 years ago and now is passed onto

the third generation –

lives through us –

TEAM GENERATIONS

Started by a MOTHER & TWO DAUGHTERS

Now extended across the country

Making children healthy

one day at a time!

TEAM GENERATIONS!

Papa’s World – On the way – we took in DC.

GOOD MORNING

This day we were on our way for a appointment at 10:30 AM.

To tour the Capital building and see a session of Congress !

However – little did we know – that we would get caught in TRAFFIC !

What should of been a 30 minute drive with traffic to the Metro

turned into one and one half hours !

Only to find all parking garages were full as were the next two stations!

We then made our way thru more traffic nightmare

To the Tyson’s Corner Mall where we parked and took the Metro.

We had to call and see if we could reschedule the appointment –

And the moved it to 12:30 PM.

Jo Paul Sherry

Papa’s World – Arlington Cemetery – National Cathedral- friends

GOOD MORNING

When friends from out of state visit – you TOUR D.C. !

Tom – Sherry – Jo and Paul
Clydes
Georgetown

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

we have today

Papa’s World – spending a few days with our daughter!

The last couple days we traveled to the home

of Mike & Debby and the three grand daughters.

We are leaving and taking Sarah and Ella with us

to the beach in Sand bridge – near Va. Beach.

We walked our three miles up what they call THE DAMM HILL!

And it was hot and humid – but we also walked across the dam

at Lake Holiday in Cross Junction Va.

The walk is full of up and down hills

but all on the road surface!

a view of the 240 acre lake from the dam.

This is in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Northern Va.

West of Winchester.

Behind us in this picture is the last big hill –

the one they call THE DAMM HILL and it is steep.

The family practices health and nutrition

Debby is a Qualified National Marketing Director

for The Juice Plus Company.

Mike is a Phys Ed teacher

Sarah Maddy Ella

We are taking the two youngest – Maddy has to work

and in two weeks will be moving into her new dorm room

She achieved a 3.85 GPA in her first year as a Freshman

She was named to the conference ALL AMERICAN ACADEMIC

while playing soccer –

and as part of that – will move into the brand new suite dorms for atheletes

at University Of Lynchburg – in Va.

Sarah and her love bird FENNY – who likes to bite me!

But she carries him-her around like this all the time.

He will even sleep like that as she holds him-her.

We bird sat – while they went away for a week –

and he will say PRETTY BIRD

after you uncover his cage in the mornings!

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 – Chocolate – GHIRARDELLI – Irish Coffee

Walking San Francisco

After getting off the BIG BUS – we decided to start walking !

Walking Pier 39
Pier 39
Pier 39

This whole area had a carnival feel to it –

crowds of people –

shops – fun things to do and see

FOOD

By this time we were hungry and looking for a place to sit down and eat !

Signs Signs – everywhere signs

Finally – we found a place with a view of the marina

Marina
Pier Market
Water front

Now – we could eat and plan what to do next.

This was the second time in San Francisco for Buck and Cindy

but the first time for us

So – there were places they knew

and we decided to try and find them !

Our view
Good company

After eating – we noticed large seals swimming in the harbor from our table

Pier 39 Harbor Seals

When we went outside – we could hear the seals

so we walked down the pier

and came to floating docks

Harbor seals
Floating docks
Harbor seals Pier 39

Quite a crowd attraction and there were more in the water swimming

and playing –

watching the seals

Time to venture forth

When they were here before

they found a place called Buena Vista

Buena Vista Irish Coffee

And of course being the Irishmen we are –

time to stop and taste it where it was invented all those years ago!

IRISH COFFEE

Let me tell you – it was strong and tasty !

GHIRARDELLI

And then CHOCOLATE –

GHIRARDELLI

You know those little squares of mouth watering chocolates !

THE STORE

Well – this place was chocolate heaven

and had FIVE ICE CREAM SUNDAE STORES !!!!!

Now – Sherry will tell you she wanted a Sundae

but the rest of us did not !

That is true – only because we had just eaten lunch

and had IRISH COFFEE

I really wanted one

but I did not think it would settle quite right with me !

Harbor view from Ghirardelli
Ghirardelli

This whole plaza seemed to belong to the candy company.

And it was really nice with live music vendors playing

A lot of candy and some of it was free !

Sherry GHIRARDELLI

But on to the next stop ( we did bring some home)

Walking back toward the harbor

And once again -unplanned – another iconic discovery on our way back !

THE ORIGINAL
KRISPY KREME
San Francisco
1937

Believe you me -before my heart attack in 2013

this just may of been the reason I had that heart attack !

BOY OH BOY !!!!!!!

I was so tempted

they looked and smelled good

but not one of us

had one !!!!!

Now I can say I have been where it all started

both GHIRARDELLI CHOCOLATES

and KRISPY KREME’S

Unexpected but this whole trip has been that way !

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 !!!!

THANK YOU !

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 !

Papas World – leaving the Tower Gardens – fantastic

When we sold the house – the new owners had adopted

a plant based diet – they observed the Tower Gardens

and made the offer to purchase them!

Along with 95 % of our household goods!

This Tower Garden is the one that has the cukes – tomatoes and spreading plants

We did two outside – in the patio we limited it – so as not to spread out

This one is inside the patio and will not spread out so much

There is enough produce to provide for several families

I often over the ten years would give away as we had too much to eat.

You can see just how much is there

They will only have to make sure it has water –

and once every 10 days or so – some nutrients –

and just pick and eat!

This will produce until extra cold weather – frost – ice or snow.

Sherry even made bread and butter pickles –

and we stored tomatoes in newspapers for a while.

For more information on the Juice Plus Company –

The Tower Gardens which are part of JP –

just contact Sherry – who is a Senior Sales Cordinator

to find out more info – contact her at
