Papa’s World – Heritage Reserve with the grand kids – hiking!

Bode – walking into the Heritage Reserve – Cherry Grove – S.C.

The little guy learned that not hiking is in the mountains like he thought!

Crossing streams or climbing rocks – that is all he had ever done on a hike

Showing him nature – the marsh – water – sand – scrub trees –

He learned that there is more to this Earth – hoping to bring him back

in warm weather as we were told you could see “GATORS” then!

Taylor walking the path through the trees!
Taylor Cassidy Tammy Sherry ( MorMor) making their way into the preserve!

They were excited – walking into the trees on the sand path –

looking for birds – snakes – spiders

hearing the sounds and the marsh views!

Taylor and MorMor – she is only 10 years old – already up above her MorMor shoulders who is 5′ 9″!
Bode – exploring and me reading to him what is here!

Tom

Ever want to go back and play that softball game again ?

Or – just one more Volleyball match

without the worry of crashing to the ground ?

How about racing down the court and laying the ball into the basket?

Instead you sit back – think and then take a warm sip of your coffee or tea-

And think of where you were – what you did – and know that-

Those were the good OLD DAYS !

Me today

Now it is make sure you brush your teeth – comb your hair –

Put your socks and sneakers on –

Look at your fit bit –

Check the time –

Glance over your shoulder –

And say to your other –

” WHICH PATH ARE WE WALKING TODAY ” ?

WHY I WALK

Walking – not running anymore – too many sore parts

But you can dream – you can think back – and you can know –

” I USE TO DO ALL THAT ”

Today – I WALK !

Walking

At our age – walking has become a habit –

A habit that has become a challenge –

one that is which path to take !

As I age – I think –

I remember –

dream of what was –

It seems that it was not all that long ago !

A PARTNER

I may be older – and I might of done things better years ago –

But the older I get –

I like to think –

Not only was I good at one time –

BUT AS I AGE – I GET BETTER – BETTER AT LOVING WHO WE ARE !

You become wiser –

you become more of a person –

YOU BECOME YOU –

Sherry & Tom 1982

Forever young –

memories are for the living –

And LIVING IS OUR LIFE –

Being older with the one you love –

THE OLDER WE GET – THE BETTER WE ARE !

Makes up for all those past ages –

WELCOME TO PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – A new church for us and the stacked stone installed in the new house!

Our life has moved on – left behind memories of our former church – just as we did 22 years ago.

Each one holds a special place in our hearts – the first where we were married –

the second where we found a home and friends.

And now the journey begins – another one near our new home.

The stain glassed window – the same as in our last church – a reminder of friends and services – memories!

Right now – this is our future choice – Saint Lukes Lutheran Church

in Ocean Isle Beach right on route 17.

We have to call to be put on the list each Sunday – because of covid restrictions.

But – we were welcomed and social distancing practiced.

Time will tell if we have found a new place to worship –

one that is but 4 plus miles from our new house being built,

Our first time inside the roof and walls of a place of worship in over 13 months.

We left the service and drove to the new house build –

The windows and doors are all installed – the roof is done and almost all the siding and outside trim is done.

Driving up – the beautiful stacked stone is all done!

Our first view of the siding and the stacked stone and the outside trim.
A closer look – the front porch and the garage – the front door and the front bedroom.
This will be my place to sit – the covered front porch – I had told Sherry when selecting which house to build – I must have what we had back in NVA – for I loved sitting on the front porch in the rain or just talking to people walking past!

I have always loved front porches – we had a large one as I was growing up –

I would spend hours on it watching the cars go by with my mother –

Talking to people as they walked by – everyone knew “MARY”

and would call out to her or honk their horns –

I am most like her in tat way!

The two car garage – which will have pull down stairs and storage overhead!

Our thoughts on this – have shelves with towels as the outside water bib is just to the left of the corner.

That way – when coming back from the beach – a place to wash off the sand!

Second thoughts we have discussed – putting a enclosed white vinyl fence with a gate –

And a tank less water heater – for a place to shower – as a third shower for the house if we have lots of company!

I have seen them all over down here – really nice with a place to sit and a place to hang clothes and towels!

On our wish list along with taking the screens out of the enclosed covered patio and glass it in with sliding windows!

It has been a adventure these past six plus months.

Building a new home – and moving South!

But – the electric is done as is the plumbing – they are starting the insulation and then the dry wall.

We are excited – and ready to move in and begin out next phase of our new chapter.

Going to miss our view – but we will have pictures and memories!

THE VIEW FROM THE CONDO – WE ARE BLESSED!

PAPA’S WORLD – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – Rivers edge – golfing with friends – we finally beat them!

Cindy and Sherry – one will walk and then change up for the other to drive.

We started off in the rain – but the forecast said it would move on out –

and the sun and warmth would be there!

AND THAT IS JUST WHAT IT DID!

One of the views – we had to cross over here – but it was not a busy road.

Are there Gators here? YES THERE ARE!
Sherry Buck Cindy about to putt!

We played well – Buck and I – enough so that they beat us by one stroke the first nine and we won by three stokes the back nine. Do not be fooled by how close they made it – they are always right down the middle and second shot is either on the green or close to it! They are good when in a scramble!

We bought what is called the first tee card – we all have them and it allows us to play over 32 courses

at reduced rates – all are on the N.C. side of the border – and our new house is right in the middle!

Sherry going for the green on a par three over the marsh.
Cindy going for the green over the marsh.

I did not like this tee box as it was like a practice mat.

The only part of the whole course that they did this on.

You could not put a tee in – only if you found a seam.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World.

It was a fun day – and because it was cart path only –

it took us five hours to play and we did not finish up until 6:00 PM.

But – we finally beat them on the back nine by three strokes and it was hard doing that!

Papa’s World – Easter sunrise service on the beach – cold – but worth it!

It was rather cold – 46 degrees – but thank goodness no wind!

We went in the dark – at 6:15 AM. and was surprised at all the cars and activity.

This was but one of several services up and down the beach.

ELCA – which we are a member of – along with the Episcopal church –

Came together to have this service.

I would guess by the start – some 4 to 5 hundred souls gathered on the beach-

many standing – others brought their own chairs

At last – in more than a year – we attended a live service.

Glory to God in the highest – and peace to his people on earth.

All our married lives – we have attended church – me – I converted from Catholic to Lutheran

which was how Sherry was raised.

I serve a risen Savior , He’s in the world today – I know that He is living , whatever others say ; I see his hand of mercy , I hear his voice of cheer, And just the time I need Him He’s always near.
They came and came – down the ramp or steps – or from up the beach and down the beach – walking- walking – walking – silently – some hand in hand – others close by – Easter Sunrise Service.
Give thanks to the LORD , for he is good; “His mercy endures for ever.”

They were mostly silent – a few murmurs here and there – ushers directing people – passing out communion cups and wafers – a few announcements – still cold – but at least there was no wind. The sound of the surf – the seagulls – the stillness of the early morning hour – the sand cold – bundled up – ear muffs and scarf – waiting – waiting – waiting.

Our Father , who art in heaven , hallowed be thy name , thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – took a little walk to the beach on my way back ran into Huey-Dewey-Louie!

Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

In this picture at the bottom of the lake – is a four story condo –

that is where we are renting until the end of June – 2021! TOP FLOOR !

We are in the middle with a full view of the lake!

There is a road way among the condo’s to the right – that is where we walk to the beach!

This would be the view only from the first floor condo – we are on the top floor.
Here you can see the map of Ocean Keyes – we are a short walk to the real estate office and once we exit on Ocean side Drive – it is two blocks to the sand and water!

We walk this area over to main street – Duffy main street seafood and many other stores.

The tennis courts and Pickle ball courts!

A short walk for us and right across the way from here is one of six pools!

There are six pools with bathrooms in this development and 780 condo units and town houses!
These are the town homes on the far side of the lake near the Hillside drive entrance.

We would of loved to buy one of these – but first there is a waiting list to buy

and second they were out of our price range!

We actually looked at one – it was well used as a second home and had to be completely redone on the inside

and did not have a view of anything other than some trees and bushes.

Walking – taking pictures – looking – where am I going? LOL
Some of the many condo buildings you walk past on the way to the Hillside Drive gated entrance!
Town homes and our condo in the far end of the lake! Top floor with the wide lanai to the left!
On my way back from the beach – just after you enter the gate from Hillside Drive –

I have named the three white ducks – for my own amusement –

HUEY DEWEY LOUIE!

They are together constantly – where one goes – so do the other two – all across the lake.

I have never seen them up on our end.

This day they were napping by the water

And within twenty feet – was the LONE SWAN!

I think this is a male as the other two will have nothing to do with it!
He too is napping!
The LONE SWAN!

I have decided to name him – for my own amusement – ” DARTH VADER”!

He cruises the lake by himself –

and when he comes near – they scatter away from him.

He is a lonely white swan.

The other two will have nothing to do with him and will chase him away!

Even he will take off and fly away from them!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – my walk back from the beach – Huey Dewey Louie and DARTH VADER!

Papa’s World – family time walking and playing a game!

Sarah Ella Papa Maddy Mike Debby

We decided before a late lunch to walk the river trail in Lynchburg Va.

Ella Sarah Sherry

We had time to kill before eating a late lunch –

besides – Maddy wanted to get out into the open and walk

as she loves to hike even by herself!

Once I start a pace – I just seem to walk – that is just who I am.
Debby Ella Mike Papa Sherry Sarah Maddy

After a couple miles we made it to the turn around

where this was as far as we would go even though it continued!

It was time to jump – act wild – and be funny!

Before heading back to the hotel and have a serious game of RUMMIKUB!

Maddy Sarah Sherry Ella Debby Mike

I was called over to help Ella out – they told me to stay away after I helped her! LOL

Papa’s World – a walk along a deserted beach with grand kids!

Often times you look on the other side of the fence – and then there comes a time you get a chance to walk at a place that would look the same 300 years ago! Here is that place at the far end of Cherry Grove – S.C. where no houses are built – no piers or docks – just sand – ocean and trees and shrubs – a deserted beach!
This I think is what the coast line looked like long before the settlers came here. No buildings – just raw nature – surf – and sand!
First – you have to find the path through the trees and shrubs to get to the beach!
Finding a very large tree washed upon shore – perhaps 60 feet long!
Sherry Tammy Cassidy Bode Taylor

Walking along the surf – no one in sight – imagining that this is how nature looked centuries ago!

And then we turn around and in the distance the pier – broken from the last major storm! Mother and daughters – solitude – listening to the surf – and time to turn around – head back to the houses.
In the background – the end of the buildings – the broken pier and a deserted beach – and looking ahead into nature what it looked like all those years ago. Tammy – Cassidy – Sherry (MorMor) Bode Taylor

This is a place where the past meets the future –

and we had the pleasure to bring the family

to see – hear and experience it!

Walking back to the future – Bode and MorMor!
Walking to the past from the future!

Papa’s World – Barefoot Landing – Playground – grand kids!

One of our favorite places to go and walk & show visitors –

Is Barefoot Landing – maybe 4 or 5 miles from where we are staying!

Tammy Taylor Cassidy MorMor Bode

Walking around with the little ones –

all the while they are eagar to get to the playground –

to get that energy all bundled up out!

All three in their happy place – and now 450 miles away – “when we come back MorMor – can we go to the play ground”?

They loved it here and even made some friends who they will never see again!

Playing tag – up and down and all around for a hour or more!

This huge old live oak tree – was moved here and saved from a parking lot 800 feet away!

I found that to be awesome – to move and save this over 200 year old oak tree.

And to build a playground around it!

We teach them about nature – walking the paths and trails!

TAG YOU ARE IT! and so it goes – not once but twice we brought them here –

and if they had it their way – we would of been here all day- everyday!

But now – it is time to move on – explore and see the boats and ICW!

Papa’s World – Conway S.C. – Old Churches and a walk through history!

Sherry walking the historic section of Conway S.C.

We like to explore and I love old towns and history of the area!

We had completed the River Walk and then headed onto main street.

This being Sunday – there were no stores open!

Which surprised me as there were lots of people on the River Walk.

A cool little garden and fountain just off main street!
I assume this mural has a part of the history of this town!

Walking – taking in the sites – and then we both noticed just how many old

historic churches were here!

Maybe that is the reason for stores being closed on Sunday?

This church was too big to get in one photo – and had been built in the 1800’s!
The first view you get of this church walking up to it – the previous picture was the center of the church!
The right side of the church – this church took up almost the entire block!

We also looked at the first church that was built here

Thinking that the people had outgrown it!

The first church built in the early 1800’s!

A beautiful stain glassed window!

Thsi was a very solid built building

but I think it ended up being too small

So they constructed the second church!

I want to go back and spend more time reading the grave stones!

We also walked by one other large church that sat on the river-

and had drive up docks for boats

and signs for people who came to church using the River!

This was also as large as the big one here.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

we will go back someday and explore more

and will make sure the stores are open!

I love these large old Oak trees!

Papa,s World – a visit to River-walk in Conway S.C. – water so black !

Entrance to River-walk in Conway S.C.

Sherry has a friend from back in NVA who also owns a home just outside Conway.

She told us we had to visit this town as it has large living Oak trees

and a historic part with a River-Walk!

The walk is along this river – known local as THE BLACK RIVER!
While these pictures do not show just how black this water is – you could see nothing!

I tried to see into the water – but it was black!

I guess there is a chemical released from the Cypress trees that line the banks –

that leaches into the water – turning it a almost black color!

It just gave me the creeps not knowing what or if anything is in there!

The trees and bushes were really beautiful as was the new walk way!

From all the rain they had – flooding of the River-Walk!
A portion of the walk was under water – making it so we had to find a way around it!
Geese swimming in parts of the park under water! You can see the water mark on the base of the trees!

We also came across a marina – with docks and boats – this area seemed to me – to be like a campground for boats! There were a number of boats with people living on them and they looked to be in pretty rough shape! I would not want to take them out onto the river. There was bathrooms here so I assume the people used them to bath etc.

These are some of the better looking ones – some were decorated outside for Christmas – others had lawn chairs and some had just things laying around!

Papa’s World – Thanksgiving day – testing the water – walking the beach!

Thanksgiving day – we stayed home – cooked some small turkey breast – mashed potato’s – stuffing – and went for a walk on the beach!

In my 71 years – I have never spent Thanksgiving near the beach –

let alone – on that day – go for a walk – in short sleeves and shorts!

I was surprised at just how many people were on the beach – both ways we looked and this is what we saw!

While everything was baking in the oven – we had bought all the trimmings at Costco!

We decided to just walk down in the sunshine – it was mid 70’s –

And see if the water was warm – thinking there would not be a whole lot of people there!

WRONG – a lot of people were down there!

I guess a lot of people come here for this week at reduced rates!

So – we started our walk – and sure enough – I was drawn to the water –

I took my sandals off –

as I could see a lot of people in the surf and swimming beyond the surf!

To my surprise – it was not that cold –

And I do not like cold water!

I walked in and after the initial feeling of the water

I started walking the surf!

I never thought I would be doing this let alone on Thanksgiving Day!

Now that we have decided to build instead of buying

We will be within a four mile drive to several beaches.

So I am beginning to think of tradition!

Walking the beach On Thanksgiving Day!

And – who is to say – if it is nice the day after –

Walking the beach the day after Thanksgiving!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – Eating out – Social Distancing – being careful.

Every morning with exception to heavy cloud cover – we wake up to this!

Welcome to Papa’s World – from North Myrtle Beach – in S.C.

Where we have temporary taken up residence!

The abnormal has now become the normal!

We sold our home of 14 years in NVA.

Stayed with our daughters for over two months

packed up and came South – searching for were and what we want to do next!

Sherry – at Hickory – just down the street – keeping social distancing – staying away from crowds and wearing our masks when out.

We have searched out and found places to visit – usually once a week we venture out to eat.

Always being aware and checking them out ahead of time.

Almost all have conformed to Covid19

Spacing out tables and we choose to be there early

before the normal dinner or after the normal lunch crowd.

And if we can not do this – then we order pick up and go!

We are in our dream place – beach – warmth – things to see and do – and GOLFING!

We found this by accident – and we knew we had to try it out!

Every day we walk and include the beach in that walk.

Yes – we are doing this!

But – we still believe in and practice Social Distancing!

The wide open beach is easy to do as you get nowhere near anyone.

Walking also is no problem as we stay far away from people and they also do the same.

And as you can see in the pictures here – our time to be there – lowers the risk.

Lowering the risk – only going in when it is like this!

Again – we limit this to maybe once a week.

There is a greater risk in shopping for food – although 99.9 % of the people

honor wearing masks – after all – it is not only yourself you are protecting

but those whom you come close to!

Common sense –

NO SHOES – NO SHIRT – NO MASK – NO SERVICE!

It is not a RIGHT QUESTION

But THE RIGHT OF THE ESTABLISHMENT!

Today we live in a not normal World anymore.

The virus is real – and easy to catch.

The numbers are what overwhelms the establishements health care.

In large population centers – the volume –

critical patients – will take up bed space

leaving those with other life threatening illness

no place to go – as the ICU’S fill up!

COMMON SENSE!

Practicing social distance – courtesy – common sense

We are extending our stay here until the end of June

at which time we are hoping our build will be done.

Yes – we decided to build –

one half hour away into N.C.

Where we will still have this – walking the beach – social distancing.

Where we dream to be.

Papa’s World – enjoying a sunny day at Tanger outlets

A day just shopping and watching – sitting in the sun – drinking a coffee – watching people!

Being retired – when Sherry asks – “Do you want to go shopping”?

I jump up and say “WHEN & WHERE”!

I know I am going to like just waiting and watching people!

Shoes – shorts – shirt – no problems!

We drove about 20 minutes down rte. 17 – to Tanger Outlets!

Every store imaginable – my favorite shoe store – Sketchers!

And a Starbucks – for a sipping coffee!

Who would of known one year ago – I would be sitting outside

in November – sun – warmth – 75 degrees –

Palm trees and Christmas decorations!

Christmas tree decorated among the Palms!

For your information – I love warm weather

I am not a fan of ice – and snow and cold!

I gave my snow shovel away!

Red bows – garlands – lights – and Christmas songs playing – this is my type of holiday!

Someday I would like to share this with our family – holidays in the Sun!

Papas World – company asked – How do you know what to write about?

It’s like this!
You make something out of nothing!
The story is there – you just have to see it
in your mind!

We had company and were talking and I was asked

“How do you know what to blog about” ?

“I do not know I answered”!

I just see something and I write!

I did not PLAN to write this blog this morning

But – I have a ability to ” SEE” stories in everything I see!

” How often do you write(blog) ?

“EVERYDAY” I replied!

I try to bring humor
I try to find balance
and I try to look at life

Another conversation we had –

” You go to bed at 8 to 8:30 pm.” ?

“WHY”?

Well – I get tired and find when that happens

If I go to bed – I fall asleep right away.

If I push past it – then I am awake until 1 or 2 AM.

And – I still will wake up before 5 am.

And then – I feel terrible the rest of the day!

That could be my wife
but not me
I am blessed with
a great memory
and I find to have that memory
is to be consistent in whatever I do!

Now – I told our company –

one other thing I do – is I never use a alarm clock!

I do not need one – I have what I call

a internal clock –

If I need to get up at say 3:45 am.

I just wake up!

Or if you tell me you want up at a certain time

I will wake you up!

I do not know how this is –

or how it works –

But it is me – and I know it not to be normal!

Smiling – laughing
seeing funny things
jogs my memory!

Today – I came downstairs at 4:35 am.

I had gotten up at 12:30 am. Bathroom break!

Could not fall asleep

So I came down and looked at my emails

Looked at my stats on my blogs.

Saw what was on face book

And then I went back to bed at 1:30 am.

And fell a sleep again.

I had gotten 7 plus hours of sleep

and I was ready to go!

While posting on face book
I came across this
and then it came into
my mind to write this blog!

My wife Sherry understands me –

not the who – what or why I am me!

But she accepts it – she is opposite –

and that is why it works!

I learned a long time ago
Just see the other side
might not agree
but it is safer!
LOL

She is all the time asking me

“WHERE IS MY PHONE”?

“HAVE YOU SEEN MY CUP OF TEA”?

But – be that what it is – she takes care of all things$$$$!

She takes care of everything that deals with bills –

I – on the other hand – clean – mow the lawn

Do the repairs I know how to do

DO NOT ASK ME TO WORK ON THE CAR!!!!!

She can make almost anything
but requires a book to follow
Not me – I just plow ahead
and from memory and feel
put it together

This works for both of us –

we know our boundries

we know each other well

She is my health coach http://www.sf.juiceplus.com

She has taken so many classes

done the research

and attending so many health fairs

She is why I am still alive today!

I did not marry a rich women!

I married a women Rich in thought

word and deed

A women rich in history

No – I did not know what I was going to write about

when I got out of bed this morning

But I do know that all of a sudden it comes!

This is but one more blog

One that when I go – will be left behind

that is my legacy – my memory – my BLOG for the day!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Where friends meet the family!

Papa’s World – Grand daughters came to visit

We picked them up on Saturday afternoon – at their house –

Their parents were leaving early the next morning –

To take their oldest daughter to college –

They would not be back until early evening on Tuesday –

Good morning – welcome to Papa’s World.

We had the girls stay with us for three days – and it was a pleasure.

Oh – and we also had Sarah’s ( with a “H” ) she says –

LOVE BIRD – FINNY !

Our three oldest grand daughters
Maddy & Ella holding Sarah

Finny will be coming to live with us for a week when they go on vacation !

Sarah – is the youngest at 13 while Ella will be 16 next month.

Sarah – our dancer – actor

Never a cross word – extremely funny – giggling and laughing –

Sarah can be a hand full – but she is so outgoing –

And she is sprouting right up there – Ella is already as tall as Maddy –

And I think Sarah will be taller than either one.

Ella is within a inch and half of Sherry – who is 5′ 9 ” !

Ella on this board that you wiggle back and forth and it moves forward

We took them everywhere

and they also spent a lot of time with their cousins

They constantly – the both of them – went up and down

and around the house on some type of board.

Sarah on her board

I would of been upside down in a second on these things !

Ella and Sarah

We went to the pool yesterday afternoon –

and they almost had it to themselves !

Packed up and waiting

Sadly – it all came to a end last night as they waited for their ride home.

People ask why we don’t move to a warmer climate –

Two of the reasons were here this weekend.

The house is quiet now – no laughter – no giggling –

No noise going up and down the street

I gaze at their beds where they slept –

And think just how fortunate we are –

Sherry and Finny

In a couple weeks – Finny will be coming back

But I miss them already –

Little ( tiny) Ella
Sarah growing up

Looking forward to the next time –

Two young ladies – laughing –

Made these grand parents happy for the weekend.

Tom and Sherry

Thank you and WELCOME TO PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World- heart felt thanks – over 700 views!

Where do I begin –

first – my blog yesterday on –

“Stand by me ”

“ELDRED ” drew over 700 views !

That is amazing from a little town with just 800 population !

GOOD MORNING – HAPPY CHURCH DAY

I grew up in this little town –

at Halloween time – almost every house –

I knew who they were and their names !

I helped my child hood friend –

Brent Wood – deliver papers –

That was when he bought his go cart and we would ride around town !

L LOVE TO TELL MY STORY

I was truly amazed yesterday –

I would check in every once in a while –

And I realized right away –

A LOT OF PEOPLE WERE READING AND SHARING !

The last I counted –

it had been shared 15 times !

LOVE ELDRED

Back when I was growing up –

this was the sentiment of growing up here

At least that was my impression .

All us kids –

from each end of town and all the streets in between –

It was a real friendship –

heading for the park to play TACKLE FOOTBALL –

Choosing up sides –

Then – the creek by the park –

with all those trails into the woods toward Park Avenue –

When I was young –

I did not go far into the woods –

Instead – just playing in the water with one eye

always on those ferns and trees !

And I guess –

that the feeling still exists today judging by the response –

From people who left years ago –

yet still consider this home.

I am grateful –

THANK YOU !

I have many more memories and I shall attempt to put them into a blog.

I always wanted to write a book –

My wife Sherry suggested I go back to blogging –

1982

That way –

we could save them all in one place –

have a history so to speak –

A place where future generations can go and read and see pictures.

North Shore – OAHU

Thank you for your support –

Thank you for your comments –

THANK YOU – ALL 700 PLUS – you made my day !

Thank you for reading PAPA’S WORLD

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 -MOR MOR goes to the Zoo – I couldn’t go.

There was a family outing on this past Monday –

A ride on the Metro –

a trip into D.C. –

And a long planned talked about visit – TO THE ZOO !

AAAWWWWW – GOOD MORNING !

You know that feeling when a event is about to happen –

But you can not be there to share the fun !

Well – I had a three to four hour test Monday morning –

And all the grand kids and their mothers were coming –

And MOR MOR

( Sherry – mothers mother in Swedish )

Was going to lead them into Washington and to the ZOO !

Sherry – Debby and Tammy & six grand kids on the Metro

They had talked about this all year –

as soon as all the kids were out of school !

We or they had to do it on a Monday –

So – with my test already scheduled –

I missed out on a fun trip.

Our oldest daughter Debby and Mor Mor

Debby and the three oldest girls made the trip from Lake Holiday –

early on Monday morning ( they stayed the night )

Mike – their dad – was going North to help his parents open their camp –

In the Adirondacks – Raquet Lake.

Our youngest daughter Tammy and Mor Mor

Tammy – her one day the store is not open is Monday –

brought the three little ones –

who are just as excited to be riding the Metro !

Marcus had to work.

The Six grand kids – five girls and one boy

Their plan – spend the day –

come home – have TACO MONDAY –

and talk – play into the night –

I also had the job of watching FINNY –

a love bird that belongs to Sarah –

Debby’s youngest !

We argued back and forth with TWEETS !!!! LOL

Their day at the Zoo

They kept me updated –

I got back home around 10:15 am.

FINNY was watching TV.

from his cage !

As soon as I walked in – he began

( I think it is a he )

He would chirp at me and bob around in his cage !

( Sherry ) Mor Mor & Tom ( PaPa )

I missed out on the Zoo –

but got to spend time with everyone

until I went to bed at almost 10 : 00 PM.

We have been to the Zoo numerous times since we moved here.

And all those times have been with the grand kids.

Our family in Northern Va.

I hope you enjoyed my little day blog on family fun –

I missed out but recovered for a enjoyable late afternoon and evening .

Then the next day we all took a walk around our pond – lake .

Thank you and welcome to Papa’s World

Papa’s World – How old are you ?

GOOD MORNING

Is it HOW OLD YOU ARE or HOW OLD DO YOU FEEL ?

This would be me

All my life – I have been early to bed and early to rise !

I just can not help it –

I try to stay up –

and I try to stay in bed –

BUT – I start to fall asleep –

and then – I get my second wind –

And – that is when I can not go to sleep –

but I still wake up early !

And then – being 70 –

feeling 50 and knowing all of the above –

Puts you in the right frame of mind –

GO TO BED WHEN YOU ARE TIRED –

GET UP WHEN YOU WAKE UP –

and make the most of your day !

Works for me !

We try every day –

do not eat this –

Lets walk – get in our steps –

MOVE & MOVE

But – you age –

For most people this is natural –

But to age and feel younger –

This is how I think each day

It is so much easier to just order in –

But you know something –

I LIKE ASPARAGUS !

I enjoy cooking –

( cleaning up – not so much )

But we try every day to eat GREEN –

We try to eat healthy –

White with peanut butter frosting

And then there are the sweets –

seems the older I get –

the more I want my cake and eat it too !

I am not much of a gummy or hard candy person –

But – put a milk chocolate covered peanut out –

beware !

Sherry – Maddy – Tom

What does keep us young in mind and body –

Is the interaction with our grand kids .

Watching them grow up –

Seeing them excel –

Being a part of it !

Make a smile – a good thought

So – is the 70 now the new 50 ?

I guess it is what ever you think it to be –

In our lives –

the answer is yes –

We try to maintain

Doing that requires good eating –

exercise – ( walking)

And finding a way to get as much whole food into our bodies that we can.

We know quite well what is on that list of older than dirt –

But then again –

We also know what is on our list to age and maintain.

It is all for us

the matter of the mind –

And doing what we think is right for us –

I hope you like reading Papa’s World

WELCOME TO PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – health – living laughter – evolving

MY LIFE

Living life – one day at a time –

and doing it my way ( well – her way also )

Welcome to PAPA’S World !

GOOD MORNING

This is part of my story – for it has many chapters.

I have been writing – on face book –

daily – since 2011 – EIGHT YEARS !

Sherry -my wife – said –

you write so well – but I am afraid it will get lost !

YOU HAVE TO START BLOGGING –

so we can have a place to go where we can read it !

Now – I had blogged a number of years ago and had a site –

actually two sites !

But my computer crashed

and I lost all the info –

Then a couple months ago –

with the help of a friend

Belinda Vallarino Cermola

She helped set me back up again –

and by accident –

we stumbled on my second blog site that I had lost !

Here it was –

and finding it was like looking up phone numbers –

as someone who can not see with out glasses !

But – we found it while setting up my new blog site –

livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

My criteria –

Make someone smile –

Make someone happy-

No politics –

Bring light to those who are in the dark –

And help people become as healthy as possible –

I had found only FIVE blogs on that site –

The other site is still out there someplace

with hundreds of blogs –

It was all on my computer –

and I could not remember the name or password –

Someday – I hope I can once again find it –

to recapture all those stories.

Today – I am blogging one day at a time –

I really have no idea each day what I will write about –

It just happens with a picture –

a thought – a quote –

or something that I experienced recently or during my life.

I started

and changed my format –

today – I follow my criteria –

I have now been blogging daily for the past 7 plus weeks !

In that short expanse of time –

I have been fortunate to have 55 people who have subscribed to my blog !

Most I do not know

and they are from all over the World !

This has given me the hope and confidence to continue –

Hoping to bring a change –

a good vibe –

My way to help in health –

I am evolving –

I am living my life –

doing it my way – one day at a time !

And a big hug to my best friend –

the person who encouraged me to write –

MY WIFE SHERRY !

and to Belinda – who helped me to restart –

And to all of you who read my thoughts and have joined –

It does not cost anything – you get a email every time I post !

THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART

PAPA’S WORLD – LIVING – HEALTH – LAUGHTER – EVOLVING – FINDING MYSELF – WRITING – ONE DAY AT A TIME

Papa’s World – in today’s World – being POSITIVE !

I find myself looking – looking and looking to see POSITIVE !

GOOD MORNING

I try to find it always – I force myself to think it –

I believe in it therefore I find it !

Positive thinking for me has become routine.

And it has been that way my entire adult life.

My Motto

END – Effort never dies – I look for other ways –

FAIL – First attempt In Learning – I read – I watch – I search – then I process-

NO – Next Opportunity – when one door closes – open another & another –

I see opportunities – I see chances – I try to see both sides –

Give what you can

I do not have a lot – but I give what I can –

Mind – Soul – Laughs – Smiles – Greetings –

Those are FREE –

A simple act

An older couple – a diverse couple –

I later learned from India –

I was sitting on my front porch –

It started to sprinkle –

They stopped under my tree for shelter – it rained harder –

I asked them to come onto the porch –

The wind picked up –

I invited them inside until it passed –

They were grateful –

BEING KIND –

Looking – looking and looking – finding positive –
