Papas World – staying with our daughter – 4th of July

I am glad I had my HIPPIE YEARS all those years ago! YIKES!

All those years later – we have sold our home

and are spending time back and forth between our daughters homes.

Here – we are at Debby and Mikes at Lake Holiday – Cross Junction.

We have come for the 4th. of July – and the fireworks on the lake

at a friends of theirs dock!

Sarah

We have been coming here for the past 14 years to be with them

The three oldest grand daughters!

Debby and Sherry
We all are a family of healthy eating

Sherry is a senior sales cordinator

and Debby a Qualified National Marking Director.

Both for the same company –

The Juice Plus Company

and both certified health coaches.

The peaceful setting – ducks on the water – speed boats –

and pontoon boats pulling tubes and skiers.

fire works at dusk
all the boaters gathered at the marina

We had a excellent view – and had watched the boats headed to the marina.

Observing is my nature – I like to watch – listen –

and I as I get older – I am learning –

looking and feeling the vibes of others.

I found this funny – but wife may not agree! Lol

Papas World – children – now grown up – memories

In 1982 – June 25th. we were married – each for the second time.

We had dated for a year and half.

We were engaged the previous December at Christmas.

Our journey was to begin – and now – soon to be 38 years!

As we grow older – the kids are still kids to me.

That is what I call all four.

My two sons
Troy to the left
Shawn to the right

Troy can build a house from the ground up –

Shawn is a ranked pool player in the USA & Canada

Shawn has his own energy company – across Pa.

Doing audits and energized for the elderly & low income.

All through the state and power companies.

Troy runs the crews.

Both are kind – caring and live back in North West Pa.

Very proud of these two.

Shawn is married to Trisha – he has two sons

Ryan and Dylan

Troy has no children of his own

but is loved by the children of his ex.

Debby is a Qualified National Marketing Director

for the Juice Plus Company.

Living the dream and living the life of health & nutrition

Debby is married to Michael

and they have three daughters

Maddy – Ella and Sarah

Tammy is also into health and nutrition

as a Sales Coordinator for the Juice Plus Company

along with her own Upscale Consignment store for children

She is married to Marcus and they have three children

The twins Cassidy and Taylor

and the only boy – Bode.

We are happy – after all these years

soon it will be year number 38!

To my wife Sherry – Happy Anniversary

and being there when we need you.

And thank you all for reading Papa’s World

Papas World – A World of trying times – keep smiling!

The end before the beginning – a upside – inside out World!

When one little thing goes wrong –

it cascades – only in my case – it was with the KEURIG

And I forgot to put the CUP in! LOL!

Now imagine – if the top disappeared from your life

and the bottom took it’s place!

In my case – exactly what happened!

I was a fast food junkie –

and then thanks to my wife – we changed

for 14 years now – no fast food –

and I take my WHOLE FOOD SUPPLEMENTS

Of Juice plus – ORCHARD – GARDEN – VINEYARD and OMEGAS

made not from fish oil –

but where the fish get the OMEGAS – JP own ALGAE FARMS!

So my World turned upside down and right side up!

Our World which was normal is now abnormal

and we may not live long enough to see it go back

if it ever does!

So – we evolve – we change and we go on.

That has been the Human evolution since human kind began.

Laugh – think and do new things.

Times have changed – say GOOD MORNING –

Drink you coffee or tea or hot chocolate

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

I hope I brought to you words to think about

and I hope you come back

for this is PAPA’S WORLD

Papas World – took a little road trip – to buy some seeds

It has now passed TWO MONTHS since I had my HAIR CUT

and today I looked in the mirror

YEP THIS IS ME!!!!! LOL

I have decided to wait as long as I can –

no place to get one anyway

and not that I do not trust her

but my wife is encouraging me to let it go!

Jerry Garcia I am not – but getting there!

So – anyway – we went to a team members house

about one hour and fifth teen minutes away

You see she has started a TOWER GARDEN FARM

with over 20 TOWER GARDENS!

And she also grows and sells seedlings!

Other Tower Garden growers wanted strawberry plants

Which right now at different growers we use from all over the country

Do not have any – so we purchased 60!

We have a small strawberry patch in the ground as seen here.

But wanted to start some in our Tower Garden

and two other team members also wanted some.

After we were there and toured the Towers

She had 10 inside and 10 outside

and quite the operation in various stages

We made our purchases and then drove through the Va. countryside

for another hour and twenty minutes

This whole time we practiced social distancing with our masks.

We arrived at the second team members house

She had set up two tower gardens

and had a whole table full of seedlings growing with grow lights!

And she wanted 31 strawberry plants as she had two more

tower gardens to set up!

One of the two tower gardens
we have set up plus our indoor
tower garden in the garage

We delivered the plants and Friday – the rest of the strawberries

plus a whole tray full of seedlings which two more team members wanted

well we have arranged to meet them while still practicing

Social Distancing!

All in all our little day trip turned into a 6 1/2 hour journey

and over 150 miles

Oh – I might add – we had to leave the house

Our dryer had to be fixed

and the only way was for us to leave and the repairman come in

Such has now become the norm from the abnormal.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papas World – Day# 44 – I need a haircut – going back to my youth!

My oh my – I told Sherry several weeks ago – you might want to cut my hair!

But then I decided – the heck with it – you see –

back in the late ’60’s and through the ’70’s

I had long hair and rode a motorcycle

Just a freedom of expression.

I was not for the WAR in NAM.

I had friends who were recruited and drafted

and some never made it back.

I also was in a car accident when I was a senior in H.S.

and spent 51 days in the hospital –

not knowing if I would ever walk again.

Me my Senior year

I was never drafted – but I went to work one week after graduation

I had too – and 47 1/2 years later

I retired from that same company.

So – that was my time of having long hair all those years ago

The problem at least in my mind – my hair is natural curley

So – I looked like Carrot Top only light brown!

I was a Toe Head growing up!

Today – it has been almost two months without a haircut

and since I started Juice Plus 14 years ago

my hair grows really fast – so much that to keep it from covering my ears

I get a haircut every four weeks!

So – I am over due by four weeks and today it is

a Silver – curly gray – white and long!

I have no idea how long this will last but I am not going to expose myself

to this horrible virus –

do you know that now it has surpassed ALL other illness’s

including Heart and Cancer to become number one cause of death

in our great country!

And all in seven weeks with Social Distancing and Sheltering

in place!

So – here I am – fast becoming a HIPPIE once again! LOL

Thinking back all those years ago

The wind in my hair as I rode my bike –

That was before mandatory helmets

And – just after that phase – I met my wife to be.

Now today she will see just what she missed or –

not missed – as it was as curly as this picture.

Papas World – Sheltering – Day # 43 – THE LADIES!

When we married – each for the second time 38 years ago

She brought into my life two beautiful daughters.

I raised them as my own as she helped me raise my two sons.

Today – after all these years – we remain close –

And they have become the THREE LADIES IN MY LIFE!

Debby – Sherry & Tammy

They are married now – one living 10 miles away

with a set of twin girls – both nine.

And the only boy ( grandson) who is five.

The other lives 65 miles away –

and has three teen age daughters

One in college – two at home!

Maddy – soon to be 20
Ella – soon to be 17
and Sarah – soon to be 14
taken as we celebrated my 60th birthday.

While we do not see them as often as we do the younger ones

and now in day #43 of SHELTERING –

Sherry asked me when this is over –

What is the first thing you want to do?

See our family I said.

My sons live seven hours away.

Back in NWPA

We try to get back there when we can.

But that is hard to do.

So we call them – catching up –

My youngest son has his own Energy Auditing business

and contracts with the state and power companies.

My oldest son runs the crews for him.

We are very proud of all four

and when this is over will sometime this summer make that trip back home.

The days seem to run all together –

although Sherry remains very busy in her internet stay at home business.

Her monthly check has increased.

Health and nutrition and growing your own produce

fits in this time of Sheltering.

Debby and Tammy
all those years ago

Today I cherish my LADIES in my life.

We all are here for each other

and both have followed in their mothers footsteps

Sharing – selling – and teaching good health and nutrition.

Papas World – Day # 33 Sheltering in place, ZOOM

As the days pass
we see new things
helping out people from a distance

ZOOM – which Sherry has been using since it first

appeared – for her network business in The Juice Plus Company.

Now – there is the weekly “HENS PARTY”

A group that has met the last couple years or so

onec a week for lunch and a movie.

Now it is a once a week ZOOM PARTY!

Of course you do not
get all dressed up
no make up
hats – drinks
and lots of laughs

Now – we await our second “FRIENDS ZOOM” on Friday nights

for “HAPPY HOUR”!

There are four couples – who have been friends for I guess 33 years & more!

So – we decided to “ZOOM” and it was new to them!

But – a happy hour with fireballs – some beer and Vodka & Tonics.

First one was themed

HATS & SUNGLASSES

Not sure what this one will be

But it turned into a THREE HOUR HAPPY HOUR!

It has been peaceful at home
we walk – ride our bikes
and take long country back roads rides.

We are trying to keep it as normal as we can.

Once a week we select a different vendor or eatery

and order for pickup or curbside

to help support them in this time of need

to keep them going – a little bit of ourselves to them

Since I am not allowed
to do laundry
seems I do not know what to put where
I fold ( sometimes)
and put my own clothes away
I do the outside
mowing – trimming
in the SUNSHINE!

Family – this is the hardest for us – we are near the three youngest

The three oldest are a hour and half away

and they are in the age group now where they mostly do their own thing

19 – 16 & 13 – soon all three will have birthdays

Then the younger three – twins – 9 years old

and the youngest and only boy 5 years old

Bode – MorMor – Taylor & Cassidy
Each night like clock work
Cassidy calls her MorMor
and Bode – whom hangs on every movement
she does – Taylor – who is old before her day
and talks to her MorMor

It is the hardest with these three –

but we have done FAMILY ZOOMS

and have seen them from a distance

laughing – ZOOMING the three oldest in their yard

and of course all the family at the same time

This has been the hard part for us

See – we are a family unit – constantly staying in touch

making the journey to see both sets of families

sharing times all together.

Friday ” ZOOM HAPPY HOUR”

We are blessed – we try to keep it normal

ZOOM has become a big part of our lives

Church – Juice Plus teams – family – friends

and last night for the first time – Book club.

Day # 33
Sheltering in place
Social distancing

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

Papas World – come laugh with me!

I find a lot of funny sayings – pictures – quotes

that make me smile –

a lot I do not post because they are political

even though they go both ways

being a straight down the middle independant

I find them funny – and I really do not care

what party they are in!

In today’s World
THE CELL PHONE!

Today – everyone has their phone out –

I very seldom have mine out – only when I am alone

By myself with no one around!

In fact – I have been known to forget it

and leave it home!

I study people as they are doing whatever they are doing

with their phone!

YES
THIS WOULD BE ME!

I have never done crossfit in my life!

I have no idea what it consists of.

I really am not a exercise guy

But I do walk

when it is not freezing outside!

THIS
ALSO IS ME!

As I have written before

I got o bed early

and I get up early

so if you call or text me on the phone

that I really do not use

I will not see it until 5 am.the next morning!

JUST WHO I AM!

THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE

When you get older – you will find it!

Although – all through my life

I loved vegetables

Boiled dinners

cukes – tomato’s – beans –

Everything!

Could be me also!

Going shopping – I push the cart –

I lag behind –

I sneak things in unseen! LOL

Yep -that is me!

I hope today I brought just a little smile!

A feel better day!

A day made better by laughing!

SMILE!

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY!

Have A GREAT DAY!
LOL

Papas World -Living life – one day at a time – my way.

I am now in my 70’s – and six years ago – it almost came to a end!

Today – I am here – and have found that when you experience

a awaking such as I did –

At least in my frame of mind –

I live life one day at a time

and I am doing it my way –

With guidance from my wife!

IT IS NOT FOR ME TO QUESTION WHY

BUT FOR ME TO DO OR DIE!

That just about sums it up!

Sherry
http://www.sf.juiceplus.com

We have been married 37 years and together 38 years!

That is a long time!

When I had my heart attack – she had already changed our lifestyles.

But – for me – I had not done very well in what I ate –

drank or just in general lived!

My past caught up with me –

I had lived pretty much as this quote!

Then we changed – and I reformed –

lucky that I did – because I should of died!

A Widow Maker Heart Attack should do that!

They told me they had never seen someone

who had a massive Heart Attack – so healthy!

Made me feel good – but did not change the fact

I DID THIS TO MYSELF –

and – If I had not changed when I did

I wouldn’t be here!

Very sobering!

I learned a lesson – the hard way !

You get one chance at life –

I consider myself as having a second chance.

I am not wasting it this time –
I had my six year check up –

A nuclear test and a ultra sound

and a stress test.

I passed all with flying colors after six years!

I still have scar tissue on my heart

I have to take med’s because of the heart attack.

Sherry
Certified Health Coach

But – I am following the course Sherry has sent me on.

After SIX YEARS – I have no signs of hardening of the arteries!

After FOUR BY PASSES – I am well –

I AM LIVING MY SECOND LIFE CHANCE

ONE DAY AT A TIME!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World
