Papas World – The world I live in – writing!

Here I am in the latter stages of life –

doing what I love to do – “WRITE”!

Now – I share with you – family and friends –

A daily computation of events – actions –

life in general –

to serve as a diary of sorts for those in the years to come

to know what it was like in my lifetime.

I did publish one book of memories from face book

and have it so the kids can read and look at the pictures.

Pictures are very important in my writings

as they also serve as words and memories.

Our lives are all reflected in my writings –

friends – family – special occasions

and as the years go by

a time to look and reflect back

on the lives of those I love.

That is the why in why I write daily.

I hope you like my blog –

and “OH” I do like a nice cold draft

another blog forming in my mind! LOL

Papa’s World – ” I LEFT MY HEART IN SAN FRANCISCO”

GOOD MORNING

On our list – SAN FRANCISCO – and we made it !

The Golden Gate Bridge

We left in traffic in the early morning –

and arrived still in traffic crossing the GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE in FOG !

We had a destination – a parking garage –

But it was surrounded by one way streets !

So – drove around and around –

passing our way in a few times

because we could not get to it.

Parking garage

The plus to all that was the garage was right across the street from Pier 39 !

Alcatraz

We also had a view of Alcatraz in the bay.

We choose not to go there as Buck and Cindy had been there

and I wanted to spend more time in the city !

Pier 39

We walked and walked Pier 39 –

NOTE – we left Sacramento in 100 plus temps

had to have light jackets as it only got to 64 and foggy.

great place to people watch and also full of unique places.

If you go here – take it all in and search out a good place to eat !

San Fran sky line

It also was close to where we bought tickets

for a 2 1/2 hour bus tour ( you can hop on and off )

we selected to stay on and then walk when we got back.

At end of Pier 39

I also recommend you walk to the end of Pier 39

where you can see hundreds of huge Harbor Seals

all barking and moving around on floating docks!

End of Pier 39 and Harbor Seals

Papa’s World – Running for Cancer and Health – Family

Today it was run for cancer ” FAMILY STYLE ” MORMOR – daughter Tammy – son in law Marcus – Taylor – Cassidy and Bode all ran. The adults ran the Five K ( Sherry finished 3rd in her age group 60 to 69 !

MORMOR ( Sherry) finishing – the time is from the start of the front runners – her time was 40:43 !!!! 3.1 miles 3 out of 16 in her age group!

Marcus finished in 30:21 minutes – Tammy 35 minutes ! The three little ones ran a mile – after the 5K was over.

Tammy just before the finish and Cassidy cheering her on.

The mile for the kids – Cassidy finished toward the top after hanging back to be with Bode- Taylor took over and let Cassidy go !

Cassidy racing to the finish – she would of made top three had she not waited to be with Bode !

Taylor staying with Bode who is only four years old – being the big sister leader and protector!

It was truly a family run – running for a neighbor who is a survivor – running for themselves as healthy living – healthy eating and following their MORMOR on living life to the plus – teaching the rules of being health wary and eating properly.

Marcus dashing to the finish line !


All in all – a great morning outing – cold at 57 degrees with lots of gusting wind – around 700 runners – prizes – and the winner is Health – Nutrition and working for a cure for cancer.

Proud PAPA of this family – and also watching my grand daughters play soccer last night – but that is another blog !

Papa’s World – Mr. OWL – and the two TOWER GARDENS !

We started them the end of April – first week of May !

We had grown all Winter in our garage with grow lights !

Now – it was time to set up the other two – and begin outside.

TOWER GARDENS – no green thumb needed !

Middle of May

After less than two weeks – we were eating lettuce –

Memorial day weekend

Then it was Memorial day –

and we had herbs – lettuce – edible plants –

And you can see our GERANIUM’S – these are about five years old –

Pull them out in Fall – shake them off –

put in a bucket – hang from garage ceiling –

Then in Spring – clean off dead parts and replant !

BINGO – you can reuse them year to year !

The Tower Gardens – 6-19-19

Today – they are blooming – we have lots of tomato’s ( green )

And SQUASH – EGG PLANTS – LETTUCE – Different herbs – edible flowers

And numerous other salad plants !

ADDED SUPPORT

I have added cages and other support poles -trying to keep the SQUASH

Out of the yard so I can mow !

SQUASH
EAT GREEN

We eat every night from the Tower’s –

Salads – soon we will have tomato’s.

Then no more produce from store.

HOME MADE CAGE

I have a home made cage –

made out of 1/2 inch PVC pipe.

And since the weather has gotten hot – 85 to 90 -Sun –

I add water each day –

about four inches –

I could wait – but – I do not want to forget –

and let the pump run dry.

There is a pump – fish tank pump –

in the bottom – that pumps water up through the middle –

and then that drips down to the roots hanging in the tower.

Purchased a regular cage

As far as TONIC NUTRIENTS –

I add a cup every 7 to 10 days !

The TONIC is made up of minerals from the Earth –

And the plants thrive on it !

JUICE PLUS

The TOWER GARDENS are part of the JUICE PLUS family –

We have been ” TOWERING” for almost EIGHT YEARS !

Eating what we grow with

NO PESTICIDES and NO WEEDING !

Just keep the water in the base –

add minerals when needed –

And pick your dinner daily.

OUR OWL

Mr OWL – more of a decoration than anything – sitting there –

Peering out threw the lettuce leaves –

Although we have rabbits – squirrels – deer – fox – birds –

They seem to leave it alone –

We also have around six hours of Sun light –

But we have moved them to different places and they have grown.

Sherry and Tom

I hope this has been helpful for those interested in gardening –

Who do not like to weed –

And to those who want to know exactly what they are eating.

You do not need a green thumb –

we certainly do not !

Welcome to PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – five and one half years – MPI TEST

My heart attack occurred on 11-4-13 –

beginning a new life.

GOOD MORNING

My last visit to my heart doctor –

He told me it was time to have Myocardial Perfusion Imaging test.

We would schedule it before my next appointment –

Yesterday – at 7:15 am. it began.

For the next 3 to 4 hours –

I was undergoing scans – injections –

Blood pressure readings –

treadmill and more injections and scans.

MY WIFE AND ADVOCATE

The injections were a Nuclear medicine –

to go into the heart through a IV –

and then 18 minutes of scanned picture taking while being absolutely still.

SO CAN NUCLEAR TESTS

I was worried –

first – I do not like needles –

and to have something like that injected into your artery !!!

You sign a form –

some side effects may be HEART ATTACK or DEATH !

OR REMAIN POSITIVE & TRUST IN GOD

The TREAD MILL – I was all hooked up –

I had to hit a heart rate of 129 to 150 –

IT TOOK TEN MINUTES

and they increased the incline and speed every three minutes.

Had I been in a car instead of the tread mill –

I would of done just that !

I DO NOT RUN –

I DO NOT LIKE TO RUN –

I HURT MYSELF WHEN I RUN !

In the ten minutes I was on there –

I DID ONE MILE !

LORD HELP ME !!!

The last 2 .5 minutes were at a 4.2 minute mile !

I am 70 years old –

dancing is more my speed !

When I had cooled down –

she told me –

your treadmill for your age

IS VERY GOOD TO EXCELLENT !!!!!

My prayers were answered –

I did not slip off –

I hung on –

And I finished it !

ME

I had to go back a second time for a scan –

and then sit and wait.

Before I started – they told me –

if anything is wrong –

you will go upstairs

If it is all right – you go home –

I WENT HOME – all clear !

MY WHY

On the way home – they called me –

They had read the scans –

they could see the OLD HEART ATTACK –

THERE WAS NO SIGN OF ANYTHING ELSE HAPPENING !!

I was clear –

my cholesterol at my last test – 118 !!!!

WHY – WHAT -and HOW ?

WHY ?

My wife Sherry and following her schedule – and JUICE PLUS !

Those are my TWO REASONS WHY –

WHAT – healthy eating

and my supplement –

ORCHARD – GARDEN – VINEYARD and OMEGA’S

Five and one half years after my WIDOW MAKER –

I am clear –

I am me –

And that my friends is HOW I beat the odds !

SHERRY & TOM

I have friends out there

who have had HEART problems –

My advice –

find a partner to motivate you –

And then find a whole food supplement

with RESEARCH !

I found mine –

Papa’s World – sitting – writing – blogging

MY WORLD NOW

Each morning I arise – believe it or not – I have NO IDEA what I will blog!

Inspiration just comes –

it might be something I experienced –

Something I saw

or maybe read while going through my emails and face book.

Good advice – being married for almost 37 years –


( yes – I know the date – time and place )

We are each others best friend –

but I always follow one rule –

” IT IS NOT FOR ME TO QUESTION WHY ? BUT FOR ME TO DO OR DIE ! “

WHEN YOU FIND THE ONE

WHEN YOU FIND THE ONE – KEEP ON TRYING – YOU FOUND A KEEPER

FAMILY – living life through them

Staying young and involved –

this only happens once – live it !

YES I DID

In my younger years –

before I met Sherry –

I was a little wild –

I rode for 6 years – had long hair –

( QUITE CURLY ) like CARROT TOP !

Couldn’t help it – just natural curly –

but I had a accident – and decided it was time to get off and move on.

Our little Taylor

I have found that my everyday life is most enjoyable

and rewarding when I mix in our young grand kids .

Watching them grow –

and each different –

Taylor loves horses and someday I see her competing!

The trail of life

We walk together – we talk –

as we walk – going along the path –

I am now in the – what shall I say –

Autumn of life –

but I LIVE each day

So – every day I wake up –

not knowing what it shall bring

Not knowing what my blog will be –

Today’s storm clouds

But I do know this –

no matter what STORM CLOUDS

are about in this country –

I shall live my life to the plus each and every day –

ALOHA

With my best friend – living life to the plus –

never knowing what I shall write –

Makes me do –

What comes natural – one day at a time!

Papa’s World – LIVING LIFE

GOOD MORNING

Gratitude to being alive –

which if you know me-

I really should not be here !

I can count four times in my 70 plus years

that it could of gone the other way.

North Main Street
Eldred Pa.The cluster of houses
on the left side
at the top.

I was perhaps 4 or 5 years old –

I was going to cross the street – between two parked cars.

I stepped out and I heard the brakes –

I looked up and a matter of feet to my left

was a car stopped

we locked eyes – the driver and me

I was shaking – he just gripped the wheel

I came within several feet of being run over.

That has stayed with me to this day & I still see him in my mind.

My car accident

I was 17 years old – senior in H.S. playing football.

I went to visit my girl friend

My father had one big car and one small car.

The small one was a SIMCA – 5 speed – it was not fast at all !

It was like a square VW !

I was going toward the state line –

I put my turn signal on to turn left – I was in second gear

Just as I turned – a car came up from my rear going really fast

and decided to pass me instead of slowing down

The right front bumper and fender plowed into the door right behind me

I was thrown to the right passenger seat – my legs still on the gas pedal side

The back of my seat was pushed into the steering wheel

I spent 51 days in the hospital – not knowing if I would ever walk again.

The mid to late ’70’s – I rode motorcycle for 6 1/2 years

I was on my way to Amherst N.Y.

I was at a red light – up the one block was another red light.

There was a young girl in a VW – just got her drivers permit.

She started out – I followed and had only gotten into second gear

when I realized she had stopped and no brake lights

Somehow she had stalled the car

and had not hit the brake – just sat there.

The only thing I could do was lay the bike down

and slid right up under the bumper

I had no serious injury but I decided that was enough near miss’s

After so many of watching out for other drivers – I sold the bike

and never rode again .

Five and one half years ago – I had a WIDOW MAKERS HEART ATTACK

I had FOUR BLOCKAGES –

they told me I should not be alive

but they also told me

I was the most healthy heart attack victim they had ever seen.

Less than 48 hours after open heart surgery

I was home standing in my living room

with FOUR by passes.

I OWE MY WIFE MY LIFE !

She changed my health 13 years ago – with out those changes –

I am convinced I never would of made it !

She still manages me day to day

and my tests this Summer show ZERO hardening of the arteries!
