Papa’s World – Living with kids before we left – vagabonds – traveling!

Here we are – in our early ’70’s – homeless – living with daughters –

until we pack up and head South

to North Myrtle Beach S.C.

First thing we do as vagabonds – is play some golf!

We made it a point – have fun – play golf – and enjoy the warm weather while we can!

Here we played one of our favorite courses in NVA!

Deer are everywhere – and are so tame – even when you hit toward them

they do not move!

You have to be pretty good to hit them and we are not good! LOL

Our view from youngest daughter and husbands home!

We would have almost three months to wait before we left –

pack up and go –

to a place we had never been and found by accident

OCEAN KEYES – North Myrtle Beach

every day a 1/2 mile walk to the sand and water of the beach.

First – we had to downsize – made dozen of trips to the Salvation Army – sold almost 95% of our household furniture with the house ! And got ourselves a storage unit – one big enough to walk in and through all our “STUFF”!

I thought I would MISS STUFF but I don’t!

I have moved on – just as we were about to do!

But first saying our goodbyes – these are what I will miss – FAMILY!

You never get use to that – WHEN YOU THROW IT AWAY – REMEMBER THERE IS NO AWAY!

That is why we are back home for the Christmas time – for three weeks!

And we will come back again in late Feb. and early March.

They will come down to visit –

And our life will go on!

We will walk once again with them – we will share laughs – and in Jan. hope will bring them to us!
We will meet up once again with old friends – laughing – exploring –
And true to form – PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING! LOL!
ICE CREAM and a SMILE!
This one texts or calls everyday her MORMOR & PAPA!

FAMILY – fun times and memories made –

FUN TIMES and memories to be made!

NEW ADVENTURES AWAIT FOR THESE TWO – as we a\have traveled the World together and now they live only 40 miles from us!

Our friends of many years – Buck and Cindy – have lived down in N.C. for years

and now – we golf every week together.

Family is back home – friends are here!

Yes – the Sun set of a family home – the night before we left – rain shower cleaning the roadway – vagabonds!

We are blessed to have these places to stay –

and now – we have begun our new home build

and once again – it will become a FAMILY HOME!

Once again in the South – we will be together – family – as always – you never throw that away!

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

The twins Cassidy and Taylor

and the only boy – Bode.

We are happy – after all these years

Papa World – now the work begins – packing!

For me – I never set the alarm – I just wake up!

Now – that we have a agreed upon sale of the house

PACKING has taken on a whole new term.

We had done a awful lot in the previous three weeks.

The buyer has offered to buy furniture –

all we had to do was list the items and price them.

That took hours as they had no furniture

and we wanted to rid ourselves of as much as we could!

So – now we wait – what exactly do they want?

So – we continue to PACK – items that we know are going to the storage unit.

You see – we have no plans to buy another house right away!

We simply want to step back from home ownership

No taxes – no HOA fees – no lawn care –

although that was the best part for me – working the lawn!

Our plans are to search out the area first –

See where we would like to live

but in the mean time we have homes to go to.

The kids will take us in!

But – we also want to travel –

so even though we will be there – we also will be gone a lot!

We will visit friends – we will take a trip back home to NYS!

And we plan on staying the Winter in Florida – somewhere!

PACKING – each cupboard – closet – boxes – crates all marked.

We will get through this – OH DID I MENTION!

We have to be out in THREE WEEKS!

So – there in is the problem –

not knowing as of right now – what the buyers will buy from us

What furniture they actually will purchase.

So – I walk around and past them –

To PACK things we know are going!

We are happy – we are alive – we are excited

AND WE ARE PACKING!

LIFE IS GOOD – PASS ME THE TAPE GUN!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

NOW THE WORK BEGINS – PACKING!

In the early years of us being in Northern Va. , a couple of things happened. First , Tammy followed us down. Then a year later Mike and Debby and our new baby grand-daughter , Madison Margo Myers , known to us as Maddy , joined us.

I often thought if I were to open a bed and breakfast or a Cafe – I would give it the name of “THE BEAR AND THE FOX!” Why, I don’t know except that it sounded cool and I could envision a picture of a Bear and a Fox having dinner together at a table with some wine!

Now I see the picture of Maddy & her Father , our little Fox being carried by her father , The Bear of the woods, as he loves to hike the Northern woods of New York State. kinda out there in left field , but that is how I see it!

Teaching the ways of life to their children and bringing in the Health & Nutrition – showing how you EXIST TO LIVE  &  LIVE TO EXIST – always molding a way to blend their lives into harmony with nature.
