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!

PAPA’S WORLD ” LIVING LIFE “

WHERE FRIENDS MEET FAMILY

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 !
