Papa’s World – Walking the neighborhood – SPOOKY !

GOOD MORNING

When we walk – we can take different paths –

some go through our neighbor hoods

And we love those special times of the year

when people tend to decorate !

WELCOME
to
PAPA’S WORLD
walking
for health

Time now is for GHOSTS – GOBLIN’S – WITCHES

and PUMPKIN’S !

The whole works
with a grave yard !

People really get into decorating for all seasons

in our very diverse neighborhoods.

Even Darth Vadar
from STAR WAR’S

There are many different types of decorations

GIANT SPIDERS

There is a lot of effort that goes into some of these !

And of course
from all our childhood or early years
THE GREAT PUMPKIN
CHARLIE BROWN
And then the
really artistic ones
that require imagination
and ability to pull
it all together
My Neighbor Peter
and family
from Serbia

Peter is a giant of a man –

bearded and 6’6

Wife – daughter and son

Always friendly

Lilly – his daughter –

takes care of our flowers

and Tower Gardens

while we are away !

As we walk in the early morning

it is easy to fantasize walking in the dark

only the street lights on from corner to corner

A fog swirling among the trees

and a sign pointing to RIP ROAD –

RIP
What awaits you here ?
It is also a time
of pumpkin spice coffee
pumpkin deserts
and lots of
CANDY

Sherry bought two large bags of Candy

We had over 200 kids last year

and had to shut down early

as we ran out of Candy !

GHOSTS and PUMPKINS
And Monsters

Papa’s World – Things in my life – memories

I wonder where these people think they are right!

There are so many inconsiderate people out there driving.

They pass you on the right in turn lanes –

They pass you on the left and then cut in front of you

to take the exit!

They tail gate – they constantly blow their horns at other people

This scares you if you do not know what is going on!

Just a pet peeve with me!

Let food be your medicine – let medicine be your food!

Finally – after almost 40 years –

I started eating healthy!

My wife – Sherry – started me on the road to health.

She and I had gone to NBC for your health –

at the Washington DC convention center.

There she found what was to become our staple

Juice Plus – over 30 fruits – vegetables and berries JUICED!

All the nutrients after drying in a patented formula

put into capsules or gummy’s.

The next best thing to real food

and you take them every day!

Being nice – being friendly – being polite – being helpful!

I post every day on social media and I write a blog everyday.

Three things I post everyday.

Good thoughts – smiles and laughter – positive thoughts!

I try to not post political – really hard not too!

My thought on that is my VOTE!

Making changes that way and peaceful protest –

writing letters and postcards.

But – my motto so to speak is above –

IT’S IMPORTANT TO BE NICE!

I LOVE MY WIFE – ALL THE DIFFERENT PERSONALITY’S!

At the falls!

Just a few of the things in my life – memories!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – This is me!

Today we finish packing up – and say goodbye.

It will be tearful to say the least as

I am a big slob when it comes to this.

I have always been sentimental in a quiet way.

My persona is on the quiet side

I like to observe and listen

see what is up with everyone else!

This is me!

Now – in my past – there was a time I was like this!

And then – my wife – who saved my life – we made a lifestyle change!

We started with a supplement known as Juice Plus –

Orchard ( fruits) Garden ( veggies) Vineyard ( berries) Omegas ( algae)3,6,7,8,9 !

http://www.sf.juiceplus.com Sherry’s website!

Which we found out through the research

was the next best thing to fruits and vegetables

IF YOU CAN NOT EAT THE REQUIRED SERVINGS OF UNCOOKED EACH DAY!

This is me!

In my early days – I would have a few beers –

and in my early – early days – I tried smoking –

both cigarettes and some weed

But I just could not hang with either one!

And the hard stuff was not my thing either.

Usually 2 or 3 beers did me in.

And then I would get a headache – hangover!

Now – believe this or not – since I started JP 15 years ago

I DO NOT GET THE HEADACHE OR HANGOVER!

Go figure that one out!

This is me!

Easily my number one fault –

I have to have my cup of coffee or hot tea each morning!

I do not use sugar and just a touch of cream

just enough to make it not black

and in tea – nothing –

I was a tea drinker first – from my grandma and mother!

This is me!

YES – I do this every morning and when I brush my teeth

always have – do not know why –

must of been taught that way from my mom

grandma or sister – all three raised me!

This is me!

EVERYDAY this happens to me! LOL

And it is not just one time but a series of times!

SNEEZE – blow my nose – repeat –

could be up to a dozen times in a row!

This is me!

I did not go onto college –

I had been in a car accident when I was a senior.

I spent 51 days in the hospital!

I did not know if I would ever walk again.

This was 1966 and NAM was raging.

I was not able to pass the physical

and I had other obligations – like a newborn son.

So – I had to work – to survive and I learned to walk again.

This is me!

I love all 10 of my wife’s ! LOL

My second marriage – 38 years ago!

And we now go onto our next adventure

we sold our fifth home we have owned together.

We are now homeless – living between our two daughters.

This is me!

Sherry ( MorMor) Tom ( Papa)

Today – we finish packing and give hugs and take hugs

It is the little ones who are going to make me tear up.

Little Cassidy – every night comes running downstairs to say goodnight

followed by the footsteps of the other two.

This is me!

Our reasons

This is the hardest part of our new lives

going South – 7 hours away.

But – we will return – as we can do this now

that we have no home but are leasing

a 3 bedroom – 2 bathroom condo

3 blocks to the beach!

So we have lots of room for visits.

We are keeping our dental and doctors –

so we will return as needed.

This is me!

Papa’s World – A brand new car – after SEVEN YEARS!

2020 Rav4 XLE Hybrid

We bought our last car in 2013 –

and in seven years – 126,000 miles!

Yes – we do travel the roads –

and the main thing we wanted –

was gas mileage!

Our Prius V 3 wagon – Toyota – got 40 to 44 MPG!

WE LOVE TO GOLF

That car had exceptional room when you put the seats down.

And we knew when we move to South Carolina for five months

along with everything we must take – the clubs also were going!

Roof rack and basket carrier

We could do it – but it would be packed to the ceiling

and we would not be able to see out the back!

This one – we wanted the Roof rack –

and then we went and bought a basket carrier and installed it!

We also ordered a soft side roof top carrier!

Our old car had no roof racks!

Sherry does everything on her phone!

So now – we are in the learning process as this car does everything

and then some through your smart phone!

But – one thing we found out is that Sherry must have her phone

when we travel for her internet business

and it must be free to do this – so we plug in my phone

as I really do not like phones and mostly take pictures with mine! LOL

That way when we google maps – there is no interference

As we are driving and getting directions!

YES – I HAVE TO HAVE DIRECTIONS!

Or I will get lost!

This car also has a ton of safety features – which Sherry loves!

All pertain to driving – blind side – auto lights –

cruise control radar ( it can almost steer itself)

It will detect a car in front and behind you.

A wide vision when backing up with guide lines!

PLUS IT REALLY LOOKS SLEEK!

There are many – many more extras

and some we are just learning how to use!

The main thing is gas mileage – and this one has it!

Right now we are averaging 42 to 44 MPG!

And – even though I have not used it – POWER!

IT IS A HYBRID WITH POWER!

It has three different modes –

One is ECO – going back and forth from gas to battery!

Two is power – Gas only with a three speed manual transmission.

Three is battery – battery only – you can travel about 1 1/2 miles.

And it is fast going zero to sixty – if you want to.

Our Prius V wagon 3 served us well for seven years.

Now we have a road trip vehicle with storage on the roof

and storage – a little more room inside

and capable of good gas mileage!

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!

Papas World – Wife – Mother – Inspiration – Sherry!

I knew from the first moment she was the one –

We dated a year and one half and then were married.

I have never looked back – and we raised two sets of kids.

Lol – this is funny and so true!

We have bought and sold FIVE houses together in 38 years!

That is averaged to about every 7 1/2 years!

Now – we are staying with both daughters!

Oldest grand daughter – Maddy and oldest daughter Debby with Sherry.

We have plans – not to buy right away – to search – different areas.

To explore South to warmer winters.

But – to also stay with the kids.

We have set up a base camp at Tammy and Marcus house

with the three littlest grand kids.

We help out with the kids – when we are not traveling.

But – the inspiration for all of this is Sherry.

Once she makes up her mind – it is full sailing ahead.

We just celebrated her birthday – 71 years young!

A certified health coach from Dr. Sears!

A Senior Sales Coordinator in The Juice Plus Company!

A leader of her team from across the U.S.A.

“TEAM GENERATIONS”

Made up of Grandparents – children and grand children.

http://www.sf.juiceplus.com

At 71 years old – Sherry has become the inspiration to hundreds of people.

From Tumeric shots to growing plants and veggies for the Tower Garden

to teaching and talking health and nutrition

to walking and running –

to taking calls – emails and texts and zoom and voxer

She is always helping others!

Sherry – for the 38 years we have been married

inspiration – mother – teacher – corp manager – logistics- supervisor

team leader – and family idol –

She has motivated me to be the best I can be.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Wife – Mother – Inspiration – SHERRY!

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!

The friends boat and dock
Debby with the girls out in the water
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.

the moon casting light for the boats to navigate

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

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
