Papa’s World – The years of our life together – now building a house!

While we differ on many issues – the one thing that brings us together is being friends – the other is love and finally understanding and respect – admiration and equality!

1981 – was our first date – 16 months later – we married.

June 25th. 1982

FRIENDS – then and still today – my best friend.

LOVE – forty years later – still love each other.

UNDERSTANDING AND RESPECT – she smiles – often – she laughs often –

She understands me – guides me – I get lost! lol

I respect her – guide when I am able –

She in turn respects my thoughts – cares and understandings.

Debby Papa Sherry

ADMIRATION AND EQUALITY – two aspects that I have based my life on.

Both of these two are leaders – mother and daughter – SSC and QMND – The Juice Plus Company.

Home based business done over the internet – no inventory – just take a order – submit – everything

else is done by the company – they even collect the payment – 26 years in business- 21 countries. SOLID!

Today we have started building a new home – in Ocean Isle Beach – N.C.

We – one year ago – had no thoughts of doing this – both are in our early ’70’s.

Things happen and change – roll with the flow – relocate – but still only a day away from family.

Our first purchases for our new home.

We have been busy – planning – buying furniture to be delivered – as we had sold all of ours!

We will miss this view – but – we have enjoyed it for nine months! MEMORIES!

Today we continue our journey – in a couple months we will celebrate 39 years of marriage.

FAMILY MEETS FRIENDS! Home business – health & nutrition

Papa’s World – One of the many days in our life – living one day at a time!

A dose of this – a spoon of that – a sip of this – GRATITUDE!

In our life together – for going on almost 40 years –

we do everything together – we are best friends –

if no one is around – we still go on adventures together!

On our daily walk – we sometimes see the three swans!

Our days are almost never planned – unless there are errands to run –

friends to meet to golf –

but other than that – we explore!

We are taking in everything we can until our new house is built!

We also are exploring the area where we will live –

And it is nothing to drive a hour or so to see something we have never seen!

The beach at North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

We walk almost three miles a day –

we did back in NVA until it got cold!

But – here – the sun warms you up even though it is in the high 40’s!

Walking the beach is part of that three mile walk every day!

6/10 th of a mile and we are standing looking at the above!

A day in our life – we live each day as it comes!

Always active – even making a garbage trip to the dumpster a walk!

We also can walk the half mile to Walmart if we choose.

Living life to the plus one day at a time.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – I do not like shopping – I go in and get what I want – & and get out!


I associate shopping at COSTCO as if you are driving

the Beltway around D.C. ! LOL

I mean you have to watch out – you have the slow ones-

who walk very slowly but in the middle of the aisle.

You look for a opening to get around them

And just as you see it –

from behind you comes some crazy cart pusher

and almost takes your elbow off as they speed by !

When I go in there –
to relax me
or more alert
which ever comes first

Then you come to intersections of aisles –

one to the right does not apply here –

first to push through


Not even a glance

Rudeness is a way of life in the aisles.

Then there are the ones who camp out at the FREE FOOD !

You know – those places where they give away free tastings!

You have the GUY who stands there eating

blocking everyone else

eating one at a time

until all is gone and HE moves on.

Doesn’t care and is immune to stares!

Not all is lost though

You do sometimes run into people

Like I was standing in line to check out

And this man and women walked up to the line

just to the right of me

I have this problem of not recognizing people

out of the environment I know them in

That is just crazy – because I know them.

He was dressed way different – no white shirt – tie

no white smock – dress pants – no black shiny shoes

But a Sweat shirt – baggy sweat pants not matching –

sandals – no socks !

Other words my HEART DOCTOR who I have seen

a dozen times or more these past six years!

He has worked with me – talked to me

he is my connection for life

Yet it was him who extended his hand and ask me

” How are you doing”?

It was him who saw me and spoke first.

I am so bad at that.

Then there are the old couples – shopping who do smile

who stop and wait

who are courteous

the ones you talk to

and they smile and talk back

And then I realize – COSTCO is a microcosm of that same Beltway drive

As the same diverse area we live

as the same state we live in

and the same country of the U.S.A.

There are some good – some bad – some in between

Life as we live it here

Life as we have it here

Not as bad as I thought

Pretty good

America – is and always has been great

Wouldn’t live anywhere else

Thank God my ancestors immigrated here

It takes all kinds
A child knows no boundary
and no limits
except that which

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Costco not so bad after all

Thank you

Papa’s World – spending a few days with our daughter!

The last couple days we traveled to the home

of Mike & Debby and the three grand daughters.

We are leaving and taking Sarah and Ella with us

to the beach in Sand bridge – near Va. Beach.

We walked our three miles up what they call THE DAMM HILL!

And it was hot and humid – but we also walked across the dam

at Lake Holiday in Cross Junction Va.

The walk is full of up and down hills

but all on the road surface!

a view of the 240 acre lake from the dam.

This is in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Northern Va.

West of Winchester.

Behind us in this picture is the last big hill –

the one they call THE DAMM HILL and it is steep.

The family practices health and nutrition

Debby is a Qualified National Marketing Director

for The Juice Plus Company.

Mike is a Phys Ed teacher

Sarah Maddy Ella

We are taking the two youngest – Maddy has to work

and in two weeks will be moving into her new dorm room

She achieved a 3.85 GPA in her first year as a Freshman

She was named to the conference ALL AMERICAN ACADEMIC

while playing soccer –

and as part of that – will move into the brand new suite dorms for atheletes

at University Of Lynchburg – in Va.

Sarah and her love bird FENNY – who likes to bite me!

But she carries him-her around like this all the time.

He will even sleep like that as she holds him-her.

We bird sat – while they went away for a week –

and he will say PRETTY BIRD

after you uncover his cage in the mornings!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World


Papa’s World – ” FENNY ” the love bird – Sarah’s bird

This week – we are babysitting –

well ” BIRD SITTING ” !


Welcome to our World – just another day in my life !

The Myers family went on vacation –

and when you are reading this –

they have already gone come back !


So – we are taking care of Sarah’s Love Bird called FENNY !

I have no idea if it is a HE or She –

But I do know he or she misses her !

We played a recording of Sarah’s voice

and he or she reacted right away.

When we walked away –

he or she started chirping like crazy !


Of course Fenny just loves to tear paper apart –

and there are all these toys hanging from inside the cage.

Our instructions were multitude from when he or she is naughty –

To when to give he or she a treat –

to a bath using a spray bottle

( think we will skip that one )


Being the youngest in the Myers family –

She is also the first to have a pet !

Mike – the Daddy –

can not be around any kind of animal –

He is highly allergic to them and can’t breath.

But – this seems to be working out just fine.

Now – I am not much on birds –

but I find myself stopping –

and whistling to him or her ! LOL

He or she cocks her or his head –

and after I am done –

will chirp back !


This week will be different –

When I go upstairs between 8:30 and 9:00 PM.

I put the cover over the cage –

He or She settles right down –

Instruction number eight

was his or her bedtime is 8:30 PM.


All in all – so far it has been interesting –

He or she whistles or chirps –

I whistle or chirp back –

We both seem to have come to a understanding of each other !

My thank you note to Sarah –

thank you for sharing Fenny –

He or she came into my life –

Thank you and welcome to PAPA’S WORLD

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 –


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.
