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!

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 – 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 – Martin Luther King Jr. memorial- D.C.

Our last tour of this day –

The memorial of Martin Luther King Jr.

next to the tidal basin

Across from the Jefferson Memorial.

The Jefferson Memorial

I could not help but wonder –

if every man is created equal

then why ( economics) were there slaves !

Sherry – Jo and Paul

The statue is gazing across the basin as if to ask that very question.

No truer words spoken

Today we think back knowing what we know-

Yet – generations have come and gone

and that rancor still remains

Paul and Jo

“I took a picture of one of the sayings – I could not help myself in walking around and taking a picture of each ” Paul Peterson

This was our first visit here

I found it profound and troubling at the same time

Jo and Paul

Profound that it took so long

Troubling because 400 years later –

it still exists .

Today – twitter seems to dominate
and those that follow are as sheep
Today I stand with reason
I stand with comprehension
I wield my vote
and I communicate in church
with my faith
Sherry and Jo
Pondering what they see

Today –

we must not let those in power move us backward

with fear and hateful words

but reflect on our teachings

from those of a much kinder generation

Thank you for letting me share this with you

Jo and Paul have now crossed off

yet another

and Sherry and I the same

Papa’sWorld – Yosemite – natural wonders – El Capitan

Cindy & Buck

Once again I drive – up and up – hairpin turns –

We are going to Yosemite –

Cindy – Sherry and Buck

The drop offs are a thousand feet –

There are no guard rails – the berm drops a foot

and then it is straight down !

Cindy and Sherry
later we would drive on the road at the bottom

There is no other way to describe it – 15 MPH is too fast !

I would constantly pull over at the spots to pull over to let traffic pass !

They would take the turns in the other lane –

Too many in hurry – unsafe drivers out there !

Sherry – with a wonder in back of her

In the distance you can see El Capitan –

Site of the movie FREE SOLO !

President Roosevelt

This pristine area has been preserved for one reason –

President Roosevelt !

ON THE BACK OF THE TIRE

Captured – with the view – on the back spare tire –

FAITH HOPE LOVE !!!

Buck Cindy Tom Sherry

As we made our way through the park –

many sights and scenes unfolded before us –

I am breaking this up into parts

as there is just so much to capture and so many pictures.

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 !!!!

PAPA’S WORLD – WHERE FRIENDS MEET FAMILY !

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 –

Papa’s World – living healthy through my grand kids !

A few days ago –

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 !

Papa’s World – found a Natural way to health !

GOOD MORNING

We took a little trip to Winchester Va.

To meet up with our granddaughter & her mother

to celebrate the granddaughter’s birthday !

Linda and Sherry

But first we had to stop at Linda’s business store

As we had something to give to her.

The business is Natural Health & Fitness Solutions – LLC.

This was a first for both of us

and I was very impressed as I looked around.

The hours are BY APPOINTMENT ONLY !

The whole concept is NATURAL !

I actually looked at almost everything –

And I noticed some photo’s on the wall

Of before and after of some of her clients !

The pictures and numbers were remarkable –

INCHES AND POUNDS LOST –

One lady had lost 20 some inches and 112 lbs. !

I saw the focus being on WHOLE FOOD !

EXERCISE – and COACHING !

We – have tried to maintain this thought ourselves

and it is not easy

but then – HEALTH IS NOT EASY !
