Our busy lives – our family – both our close family and what we consider our family of Juice Plus.
The journey began 13 years ago – and for us it was simply changing our life style – getting healthy – knowing that after we retired – we wanted to remain in life active as we had been in our early years.
In the above picture – we had been married 7 years – and are to the far left at age 40 ! I had always played sports – softball until I was 38 years old – basketball for a radio station – and at age 46 after volleyball – golf.
Today – we golf as much as we can – but are busy with our lives – our grand kids and our in home business of The Juice Plus Company. We started this business as a way to pay for our product – and after one year – knew that we had to get our family and grand kids on it for health reasons. And then it started to grow – and grow . All from home while working full time in our Career business of TILE !! Yes – we worked a combined 79 1/2 years for the same company !
Working for Corp. America is a dream when you are young – but can and did become a very stressful – unbearable lifestyle that we both wanted out of ! That is when we really took a look at the business side of Juice Plus. We were already distributors ( cost $50.00 a year ) – and were sharing it as the belief grew stronger and stronger with changes in our combined health. It became time to move forward – so a team developed – and it got bigger and bigger – just sharing – today we have two QMND’s and one Senior under Sherry – with one QMND walking the stage in October.
Debby is almost there as a new NMD – (National Marketing Director) and we will most likely watch her WALK THE STAGE in Austin Texas – where she will give a speech before 8000 people – and recognized by the Juice Plus Company. Something that has changed her and her families lives ! Her daughter will receive up to$1750.00 per year for college! As one of her perks for being a NMD !
We have made a dramatic change in a lot of lives – both in health and wealth. We retired – Sherry at age 63 – me at 64 – leaving behind successful careers – going full time in the Juice Plus business – traveling the Country – promoting health and showing how people can take control and work for themselves – living life to the plus one day at a time.
This August – we will tour Northern California – then in October – Austin Texas – then late January – all of February and early March – Florida – getting out of the cold ! All the while working from home on the computer and phone no matter where home is !
Our life has changed – to the good – no STRESS – maintaining a healthy lifestyle – playing golf – seeing our grand kids grow up-watching them go off to college – and most important – watching our two daughters pursue their own dreams of independence and life styles in health and nutrition.
Our road to success is a road map and we have a team following it – there is no ” I ” in TEAM – but there is a lifestyle out there – one that WE choose – and is one YOU can duplicate – TIME -LOVE – HEALTH – you just have to want it !

I saw a post that stated ” GRAND PARENTS REMAIN YOUNG ” while watching their grand kids ! Boy – that was right on !
As most of you know – Sherry and I – pick up the twins from school -bring them home until their father picks up the youngest ( only boy grandchild) and then stops to pick up the twins !
Tammy opened her store almost one year ago – Kids consignment store – which is open every day except Monday 10 am. – 5 pm.
So – they needed help and we stepped in along with Marcus’s parents Jennie and Gehard. Since Bode’s preschool is close to them – they pick him up at 1:00 pm. and then Marcus goes after work to pick him up.
Now I must say – I really enjoy my little trip to the school – a little over one mile away. “PAPA – BE FIRST IN LINE ” is what they tell me. Well – even though I am in line one hour before they get out – most times I am second !!! That person must get there after breakfast !But – I use that time to listen and read !
Listening to my favorite radio station – not classic rock or country or rap or whatever else is out there – but ” SPORTS RADIO” 106.7 The Fan! I enjoy kicking back – using a couple wadded up blankets – for a pillow – and just spacing out listening to the talk show. This relaxes me and yes sometime I catch a quick 10 minute power nap ! When I was working – I used my lunch – one hour – every day to do the same thing ! Habits are hard to break !
But – I also listen to these two little girls – talking – conversing and sometimes a argument breaks out ! Now at that time I either look back and tell them to stop or I turn up the radio so loud – that they become silent ! LOL But I find they actually talk so much like adults – on their own daily lives.
Being with them makes me feel young at heart – relating to them – and oh my goodness – the questions are endless – and” WHY” is always asked.
But – then it gets adult like with the answer ” OF COURSE ” or ” ACTUALLY ” or “PAPA” ! I love that – and it makes you think when you answer the “WHY” !
” WHY ARE YOU NUMBER TWO AND NOT NUMBER ONE ” ? I get that one almost every week ! But – how can you argue the fact that life is about staying young even though it might only be a frame of mind !
Turn back time – can’t – capture thoughts words and deeds in pictures – you can – but staying young is a art that we all try to master.
Mine is a matter of mind over physical – thinking – acting and doing! I may not be number one in line but I think I try harder at being number two – after all – “PAPA – WHY AREN’T YOU NUMBER ONE ” keeps me on my toes each week to give a answer and that my friends keeps me young !
The years went by so quickly – fourteen to be exact. When she was four – she started playing soccer. It was at that time – the ball seemed to be almost as big as she was !
Our Grand daughter – Madison ( Maddy ) last week signed her letter of intent to play college soccer at the University Of Lynchburg in central Va.
We took the 60 mile journey to Winchester Va. to James Wood H.S. where she is in her last year – for a celebration by the school – and the other part of this story is that her friend and playmate for the last fourteen years – ” Katie P ” also signed her letter of intent to play at the University DeSales in Pa. !
They both had played as four year old’s all the way through H.S. including travel teams in Winchester and the last three years traveling 65 miles one way – three times a week for practice with the Loudoun County Red team.
Maddy has had this goal in mind for a very long time and with all this she still has maintained a 4 . 10 GPA ! Katie also has done the same.
Her college team is going to be a three hour drive for us – which in my mind is ” ROAD TRIP ” something we both enjoy.
Very proud of the young lady she has become – from being the smallest on the field to a strong midfielder who has become defined by her coaches as the ” FULL PACKAGE ” , everything comes through her on the field.
And as you can see – she has grown into the part – taking after my wife who with Swedish heritage – is 5 ‘ 9″-
Maddy certainly has those genes. Another day in PAPA’S WORLD – living healthy and life to the plus !
