I post every day on Facebook – GOOD THOUGHTS as my way to promote Positive feelings and sharing!

Helping others as much as we can – staying neutral – staying true to our beliefs – having good relationships.

Having a sense of humor – smiling – laughing – feeling positive and focusing on the life we lead – THE SALT LIFE!

Trying to leave a footprint on Positive changes for the good of humankind – is not easy but can be done.

A smile when many years ago our granddaughter took her first horseback ride – today she rides and takes care of horses!

Thank you for reading PAPA’S WORLD – my site:


Papa’s World – family – most are gone – but memories linger on – missing them.

My step father John – my mother Mary and my brother in law Bill.

John was a decorated WWII hero – with the purple heart and numerous other medals.

He captured a castle and a Nazi officer out of uniform – there is a story in a military journal

that is in the WWII museum in Eldred Pa.that chronicles that event.

He took from that officer a automatic machine gun pistol – vintage WWI – that also resides in the museum

and is worth upwards in the thousands of dollars. They keep it locked away as it is so valuable.

He was wounded several times and went back into action.

Bill was a vet of the forgotten war – Korea – he seldom talked about it but while I was growing up –

he gave to me his sleeping bag that he used in the cold winters there.

I admire his stamina as all it was is a wool blanket inside a canvas liner!

I would get very cold while sleeping outside on the ground in it!

He was more to me than a brother in law – he was my friend and like a brother to me.

One time I was out with him on patrol in the cop car – he was the town cop –

We drove down across the tracks and out past the old pipe building –

he saw a woodchuck and said to me –

“Do I get him”?
“Sure I said”!

He pulled out his gun and from the front seat shot that old woodchuck –

I almost went deaf from that gun going off!

I said ” JESUS CHRIST BILL” and then we both just burst out laughing!

Lesson – never fire a gun from inside a car – you can barely hear for like 10 minutes!

John and Mary ( my mother) holding pies that she made from scratch!

Mom was known all over the town and county and into NYS for her baking.

She would bake rolls – bread – pies and cakes. Sweet rolls and sticky buns.

There was not anything she could not knead and bake and all from memory!

She did not need a receipt – she just did it after almost 85 years of her life baking!

She baked as a child learning from her mother who passed at 85 years old.

Mom was next to the youngest of 11 kids and was almost 98 years old when she passed.

She supplied pies and cakes and rolls for a diner in town.

She was so kind and loving – warm and gentle – but she also was a strong women – way before her time – she believed in equal rights and taught me that – she would come up with these sayings that made me laugh – ” You are as useless as a two petered billy goat”

Or she would say ” You are as useless as teats on a boar hog”! She had me in stitches –

she also played the accordion my father the spoons and sang and my uncle jack the wash board.

They would do this at family picnics and if the beer was free – at social events.

When she was young – she traveled with my grandma in the logging camps of Pa.

Making breakfast – lunch and dinner as a way to make money in the depression.

My father passed away in 1969 after a long battle with cancer – leaving mom a widow and my younger brother just entering H.S. After about ten years she met John – and they remarried – both of them.

They were together until he passed away at age 81.

She called him “JOHNNY BOY” and he was so good to her – just what she needed after ten years losing my dad.

He could fix anything and construction was his forte.

His cars and trucks immaculate even though they were ten years old – showroom condition.

He fixed up and remodled the house which she had kept going all those years .

That same house today is still in the family after almost 78 years –

my great niece lives there today.

Mary ( Mom) and John ( her Johnny boy)

Papa’s World – Past thoughts – good vibes and humor!

I have always championed equal rights for women – and will to the day I die.

Life is full of humor if you look for it! LOL!

I look for positive stories to read and positive – good thoughts to share – life is too short to do otherwise.

Our brand new Community Center has opened – Pickleball courts – pool and clubhouse.

My thoughts have always been this – “DO THE RIGHT THING”!

Trying to keep the weight off – requires a sense of humor – at least I can laugh at it!

Thanks for reading today’s Papa’s World – my site:

Our granddaughter – Taylor – grooming a horse – who loves to ride – she would spend all her free time in the stables!

Papa’s World – Life with us – in our senior years!

We have a walking group that meets every Monday and Friday at the park across the street. You walk at your own pace and usually do two complete loops – just over a mile each and then once around the track.

This in total would be 2.30 miles!

Then during the day, we will get in the rest of our 10,000 steps – my heart doctor has told me just to “MOVE”!

Growing up in the 50s-60s and 70s – the generations that wanted love and peace – still has a place in my heart today!

We have adopted a healthy choice lifestyle – I do not drink soda or milk anymore – or fast food!

We live just a few miles from the beach – often going there for our walks – sun – sand, and surf!

We try to golf once a week or every other week – usually with dear friends of 35 years.

Just being out in nature – and yes – we get STEPS in that way!

Our dear friends – golfing – having dinner together and making plans for fun trips!

SENIOR YEARS – living one day at a time and living life to the plus – LIFE WITH US –

PAPA’S WORLD my site:

Papa’s World – Life with us in Carolina and before!

This is our new Community center in Cameron Woods Community – OIB, North Carolina.

We now are residents of Noth Carolina – having moved here almost 3 years ago.

Coming from Northern Va. for the past 21 years and before that in WNY!

We are the product of the ’60s and 70’s growing up thru the 50’s.

Working in WNY and transferring to NVA – our lives have transformed into senior living and retirement.

Papa taking a selfie of our neighborhood walking group an Mondays and Fridays!

Our favorite pass time is beach walking -and golfing and walking with friends and neighbors.

Living life one day at a time and living life to what I call the plus!

Helping where we can – Memory Care unit – Book club – helping people out who have dogs –

Life is full of wonderful situations – positive things and getting rid of negativity.

Growing our own produce without soil and pesticides. eating as healthy as we can.

Papa’s World – LITTLE TAYLOR loves horses – now BIG TAYLOR riding horses!

Our grandaughter Taylor with her mother – soon to be a teenager – she has grown up riding horses!

A beautiful young lady to be – she would clean stalls and groom horses every day if she could!

It all began with her – she could barely walk – yet she knew what she wanted and today she rides so gracefully – here her mother helps to steady her on her first ride!

Now she is a regular at the riding stable and volunteers to groom and take care of the horse’s stalls!

Tall in the saddle – little Taylor does not need any help – becoming an accomplished rider.

Her dream is to someday own her own horse – she is so graceful and an easy learner.


Taylor and her MORMOR ( Swede for grandmother) walking hand in hand – PRICELESS!

Papa’s World – A little HUMOR – LAUGHS and GOOD THOUGHTS!

I try to live my life with humor – not laughing outright – but with funny thoughts that lead to smiles!

Keeping it all in perspective – I like good entertainment – shows that make me feel good!

I am not good with scary shows or violent shows although I have seen some good ones!

AAHHHH! The wisdom of our senior years – living life to the plus one-day at a time!

I tend to unfollow people who post negative or insensitive posts – I have enough negative ‘STUFF” –

I choose to read and see the positive side of life!

Life is full of choices – doors to open and walk through! LIVE TO THE FULLEST!

I hope this starts your day off in a good mood – enjoy whatever the day brings –

listen to the sounds – see nature and live life to the fullest one day at a time!



Papa’s World – Good times and Good thoughts!

Papa’s World is my blog where I bring friends – family and laughs and good thoughts.

One of my happy places is the golf course – if only I could play!!!!!

Laugh – smile and have a sense of humor – living life one day at a time – and to the plus!

We love living close to the beach – walking – sitting and just enjoying sun-sand and surf!

We are retired – with a home business – living out our senior years – having family visits and returning back home to see them

With friends, we just may do this in modest consumption! LOL!

PAPA – thanks for reading – my site: GOOD TIMES AND GOOD THOUGHTS!

Papa’s World – Family time spent together.

Family time – father and daughter – PRICELESS!

Papa – Ella Maddy ( her boyfriend Kendrick) Sherry – we stopped in Lynchburg, Va. on our way back to OIB to see them and have breakfast.

Both granddaughters are in college there and Maddy will graduate this year.

Fun time even though it was short – granddaughters!!!!!!!

PAPA’S WORLD – my site:

Marcus – Taylor – Tammy and Cassidy – both granddaughters straight “A” s for three semesters in a row!

Cassidy did this besides practicing for six months for the play The Little Mermaid!

Taylor – who loves horses and rides every week and sometimes works in the stalls.

They went out for a treat for the straight “A” s.

Cassidy – Tayor and Bode – grandkids – visiting them in Leesburg, Va.


Thanks for reading Papa’s World – FAMILY TIME SPENT TOGETHER –

Papa’s World – our granddaughter – Cassidy in Little Mermaid.

She has been in practice for six months – she played a Starfish and a Swan – in all the performances.

She did not try out for a speaking roll as she still is shy but has a beautiful voice.

Cassidy as a Starfish – she danced on stage and did a cartwheel in both directions and sang.

We were amazed at the costumes and the skills of the 6-7 and 8th. grade cast members.

Cassidy is on the right dancing and singing – once she gets over being shy – she will shine – she sings in front of the congregation in the choir and does vocals in a youth group band.

Cassidy as a swan between her sister Taylor and mother Tammy.

As a swan she danced and sang – she was very graceful.

Our shy little Cassidy – getting more brave to perform in front of a audience.

So I wonder if this is MIDDLE AGE – SUNSET years mean you forget where all those plastic bags and Tupperware lids are? LOL

Living our unset years in OIB in N.C. – warm temps – cool ocean breezes – sand and surf – golf and walk – pickleball –

senior years can be watching and working to age healthy!

Hard to do but working on it! LOL

Eating healthy – drinking water ( and throwing in a beer once in while) maintaining and looking ahead – enjoying our dream life.

My habit for each morning – is one cup of coffee!

That is my limit and the smell in the morning of brewing coffee – to start my day!

Living near the sand and surf and sunrises over the water – LIVING THE SALT LIFE – not for everyone but for us our dream life.

When family visits – joy – laughter – smiles – great feelings – family time is our asset in life!

Family of youth helps to keep us feeling young – MORMOR and PAPA – living our life to the plus!

The beauty of a sunrise on the beach in N.C. What it must have looked like hundreds of years ago!

Sunset over the marsh of Sunset Beach, N.C. The wonder of nature painted in the sky!

The resources of the ocean and the wildlife around it!

Conservation of the environment – clean air – clean water – recycling – part of our lifestyle.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – my site: LOOKING AT THE PAST!

Papa’s World – North Myrtle Beach – dinner at Local on the Water!

Good day – while living for nine months at Ocean Keyes – which is in North Myrtle Beach – we became fond of

the place to eat right on the ICW is called LOCAL ON THE WATER!

View from the deck looking West along the ICW from the deck.

This complex has several bar areas and places to eat.

This also is the place where dolphin cruises depart along with boat rentals!

A big campground sits across the ICW on the other side.

The outdoor stage along with the covered outdoor bar – plenty of room to spread out and listen to the music –

this afternoon was a lone singer who was quite good!

Get there early as it fills up fast!

Our family was at their table – the rest of the kids were playing on the swings! You can see the main bar area in the background!

If in NORTH MYRTLE BEACH – check this place out – we have taken many guests here!

PAPA’S WORLD – my site:



BEACH TIME a long time ago – Grandkids – now we live near the beach – all will come and all have!

MEMORIES – when they were young with GIGI – Sherry’s mother!

SUNSET over the marsh at SUNSET BEACH – never gets old!


Thanks for reading PAPA’S WORLD my site:


Papa’s World – The MAZE at Sunset Beach!

We have what everyone calls THE MAZE MAN – who starting in the Spring – creates MAZES on Sunset Beach near the 13th. street!

He creates the by hand and free to the people on the beach to walk and solve!

They are really big and you walk them from a starting ENTRANCE point to the end EXIT point!

there is only one way to make it through to the exit and requires several attempts most times and sometimes you can not find the way out!

Here our granddaughter Taylor is on her way to solving the MAZE!

That would be me in the woods – rabbits have nothing to fear from me!

The MAZE is a fun activity to keep exuberant grandkids occupied! LOL

Sherry takes a selfie of Taylor and Bode solving the MAZE on Sunset Beach, N.C.

Thanks for reading PAPA’S WORLD my site:

The grandkids – Taylor – Cassidy and Bode – PAPA’S WORLD – THE MAZE AT SUNSET BEACH, NORTH CAROLINA!

Papa’s World – Revisited our old neighborhood – NMB!

Main Street and Beach Blvd intersection of North Myrtle Beach – during our nine-month condo stay here – we walked this almost every day – heading for the beach – you can see the stage at the entrance to the beach.

The radio station 94.9 THE SURF is on the left along with HODO’S Beach Club and the Old Arcade on the right.

The parking lot on Friday nights is full of beach chairs and the streets are closed off for concerts on the stage.

Turning around from the intersection is Main Street and you can see Sherry walking up the street.

We were here at the beginning of the Pandemic and this was a ghost town – although the stores were open.

Our favorite nightclub to go to where we finally learned what THE SHAG was!

A dance that came from the Rythem and Blues of the 40s and became a cross-over called Carolina Beach music.

And has become the state dance!

This scene has been ongoing for 80 years!!!!

“ENTER THROUGH THE JUKEBOX DOORS” so goes the advertisement heard on the radio.

This club is full of history – pictures and items from the past 80 years!

The dance is like the STROLL-JITTER BUG – SWING where you never lose contact with your dance partner.

Yearly competitions are held here and every four months SHAG comes to town –

Bands – music- dancing in the streets!

Like the Hollywood Walk of Fame – the sidewalks are full of plaques from all through the years of people and dancers and dates!

The big water tower that overlooks the town has a picture of a couple dancing THE SHAG!

On the beach from the beach entrance – we walked this every day while we lived here!

Sherry walking North Myrtle Beach – one of the widest beaches at low tide I have ever been on!

Exiting the sixth street beach entrance and looking up the street to where we stayed at the back entrance to Ocean Keyes.

Over 700 condos and a huge lake with six water fountains.

Six pools – tennis courts and a workout room.

Loved living there but no garage and no storage space – or else we might have stayed there.

Looking back from sixth street beach parking to the main town of North Myrtle Beach – our old neighborhood.

Thanks for reading PAPA’S WORLD – my site:


Papa’s World – Our life in Pictures!

Our closest beach – is four miles away – Ocean Isle Beach – and then Sunset Beach is only six miles away!

Sunset Beach – known for its fantastic sunsets – this one is over the marsh!

Where we live – one phase of the build-out is left – we are close to shopping – golf – beaches – entertainment and lots of fun!

We try to see things all as good thoughts and kindness.

Our little palm tree in the backyard with the protected tree line behind it!

We grow our own produce year-round on the back patio!

We choose to do this with water – air, and nutrients only – no pesticides so we know what we are eating.

If you want info on this product – contact

My dream growing up was endless vacations near the beach – today we have that – watching others packing up to go back home – while we can come back the next day and the next day whenever we want!

Our dream now – living life to the plus one day at a time!

A wise saying but also very truthful!

Memories of fondness from the past!

Papa and Sherry were at a Washington Nationals game before we moved to the Carolinas!


Papa’s World – golfing at Leopards Chase with friends.

Every week or two we meet up with old friends – we were neighbors back in WNY – to golf.

They live about 35 miles away in Leland, N.C.

We have stayed in touch even though they moved South some 26 years ago!

Sherry and Cindy – on the golf cart at Leopards Chase in Ocean Ridge, N.C.

One of four courses right across the street from where we live in Cameron Woods Community.

The courses are known in the area as THE BIG CATS courses as they all have names of the big cats of the world.

We have been golfing together for about 30 years.

We have traveled the world with them on trips –

and all over the country.

Buck and I have been friends for almost 40 years.

Today he is my golfing partner – we play the girls in a scramble and they usually beat us!

Thanks for reading PAPA’S WORLD –


Papa’s World – Took the family to Fort Fisher Aquarium.

We have a tight-knit family – and all are in our thoughts and our lives every day.

Debby – Ella and Sherry – an ancient replica of MEGADON!

We had taken them here years ago -and the memories of that long ago the time came back!

Giving them a chance to once again have another memory is what we do – we share with our families those precious memories.

Afterward, we rode the ferry back to Southport where we went to FISHY-FISHY for a late lunch-early dinner.

We showed the waterfront to them – walking around –

What a great way to end our trip – a ferry boat ride both ways

and then food –

Thanks for reading PAPA’S WORLD –

Sarah – Debby and Sherry and Ella – beaching it at the OIB community center – volleyball net in the background!

A little smile for the day! LOL

Sherry and Ella on the maze – never did solve it! There was another one up on the 15th. the street that they went to and solved that one!

We had fun and while it was not really warm – the sun made it feel warm!

They will be back in June when we will have warmer weather and the ocean is warm to swim in.

Thanks for reading – some more beach time – relaxing. Papa’s World –


Papa’s World – cousins coming together!

Cousins – Sherry sisters daughter and her family – the JONES – and Debby and two of her daughters – the Myers!

We journeyed to Sunset beach – to catch the sunset – it so happened that the JONES was visiting and the Myers were also here at the same time.

Through the years we have tried to be all together – but families spread out and lives are different – so many things going on in each family.

Grandmothers and granddaughters. On the beach in Myrtle beach – after some shopping at the outlet mall and some dinner all together at Barefoot Landing.

The little ones are growing up so fast – years seem to go by before we meet up.

Thanks for reading Papa’s World –


Papa’s World – Life with SHERRY!

A number of years ago – we had this taken – today – they have all grown so much – the next picture was taken last year!

And now there is MARLY – the Goldendoodle of the Krohn family – the kids love her! LIFE WITH SHERRY!

Sherry and her very close friends Cindy and Dottie – for 40 years – sharing life with SHERRY!

When Cassidy was on the left and Taylor was small – this was the year SHERRY retired from Corp America! Almost 12 years ago!

At a winery in California in the area of the wine country North of Sacramento.


Doing shots on the ICW marshes with Pam and Bob – my grade school buddy!


Dottie – Cindy – Sherry – before the wine tour at our home in Brambleton, Va.


Our grandkids – Maddy – Ella – Sarah – Taylor – Cassidy – and Bode – note how Cassidy takes care of Bode – to this day – still the same way!

Sherry – Cindy – Dottie – always through the years – friends – LIFE WITH SHERRY in PAPA’S WORLD!

Papa’s World – Through the years – now living in the Carolinas!

Our married life began on June 25th. 1982 in a little town in WNY – called Portville!

We both worked for the American Olean Tile Company in Olean, New York.

We combined two sets of children – my two sons and her two daughters – although my sons lived with their mother.

We traveled with all four on vacations and weekend events.

Troy – my oldest son and Shawn my youngest – both still live back in NWPA where we all are from and raised.

They have been down to visit last summer and hoping they come once again.

Our lives with our family are so important – and hoping all will visit this summer!

Mother and daughters and their families. Debby – is the oldest on the left and Tammy is the youngest on the right.

Our life together reflects the above in our values as a family.

Today we move forward in our retirement in the Carolinas – living our dream of the salt life one day at a time!
