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 – Laughter – living – health – evolving

Image may contain: 2 people
My thought in life – think young – smile – be involved with your grand kids – and look for the positives and let the negatives roll off your back !

Every day in my life – I look for what is funny and positive – keeping a open mind – I avoid News Channels – seeking information on my own.

I have come to maintain my healthy living style with my wife – Sherry – who is a certified Health Coach – thank goodness for that.

This June will be our 37 th. anniversary – seems like only yesterday – and next week I turn 70 and in two months she also turns 70.

In marriage as in life – compromise is a must – as is laughter – and in our case travel and family – most important to us is family. We have a close group of a few friends – trying to get together every four or five months.Since we are scattered about over a 400 mile range – sometimes that can be a little daunting.

Our family where we live consists of Five grand daughters and the newest – and only Boy ! As you can guess – he has all our hearts. Both mother’s and their mother – whom is called MORMOR ( Swede for Mother’s Mother) promote healthy living and eating. ALL are on the product called Juice Plus – as well as the Omega’s – from Algae – not fish oil – and try to be gluten free.

The oldest does not eat meat – and has signed a letter of intent to play soccer at the University of Lynchburg in Va. We have two more soccer players – a gymnastic – who all the time is doing gymnastic moves – a Equestrian – and a Ballet and Modern dancer.

They are very important to us and I can honestly say – their youth keeps us young in body and mind.

June 25 th. 1982

The years have flown by – we are now watching our grand children going off to college. But – the legacy that we brought forth almost 13 years ago – has been instilled in each and every one of them as well as their parents.

Today – we are living life to the plus one day at a time – walking 3 plus miles a day – doing shreds ( getting rid of toxins ) going dairy free and gluten as much as we can.

And – for me – sharing good thoughts – smiles and interesting family – friends and my life blogs.

My motto through life :

” Do all the small things well and they in turn will take care of the larger things ” ! Hope you enjoyed the read – HGD !!!!

Papa’s World – The “TECHIE” I am not !

Anything that has to do with computers – phones – TV’S –

Do not ask me – I don’t know – I can not figure it out –

AND MOST OF ALL – I DON’T CARE !

That would suit me just fine

I just do not have it –

first of all – I have no patience –

that is why I hate working on cars !

Now – once I am shown and if I write it down and do the task a couple times

I am good to go !

This would be me !

I think the first computer we had was a H.P. – great big thing –

Sherry showed me what to do and I was fine – EXCEPT –

Something ” ALWAYS” happened –

honest to God – it was not me !

Take care of all the small things – the big things will take care of themselves

Little things – like the other day – I have a automatic sign on for my email’s.

I clicked on it and BINGO – it no longer would come up –

I had to LOG IN again with that dreaded

” PASSWORD ” !

So – I DO NOT REMEMBER such a thing – so I opened my book –

where I keep my pass words that I CAN NOT REMEMBER –

And started the PROCESS –

” BINGO” –

IT WOULDN’T WORK !

It doesn’t matter – memory or write it down

So – Sherry – who has her office upstairs –

mine is the kitchen table –

I am very humble !

I yelled upstairs –

“I CANNOT OPEN MY EMAILS ” !!!

” WHAT DID YOU DO NOW ” ? she replied.

Exasperated look comes across my face – I slowly shake my head –

“IT ISN’T ME ” I replied !

” IT IS ALWAYS YOU ” comes the voice

from the commander in chief from above !

WHAT ??????

Down she comes –

and instructs me to ” LOG IN ”

which by the way I had already done FOUR TIMES !

Now – I try to explain – I try to say –

“IT DID IT ON IT’S OWN ” !

“NO – HON – IT DOES NOT DO IT ON IT’S OWN ” like a mother to her child!

“LOG IN & PUT YOUR PASSWORD IN ” !

I do

( said that a long – long time ago )

” YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSE TO USE A HASH TAG SIGN”? she scolds.

” EXCUSE ME – IT IS NOT A HASH TAG SIGN – IT IS A POUND SIGN” !

NOT ME – I KNOW BETTER

Then – she sits down after I tried once again and failed !

Now – you have to know – when we go somewhere –

I DRIVE !

And she uses her phone to give directions –

I am terrible on direction .

She is going to use her phone anyway – so it might as well be for directions

is what I think !

And – we never go the same way twice –

so I have no idea how to get to where we are going !

I told you – I am okay as long as it is consistent –

GO THE SAME WAY !

We – have to EXPLORE as she says -so –

I DRIVE – SHE DIRECTS – ALL IS WELL !

( grand daughters think this is HILARIOUS)

they take my part !

She then proceeds to enter my sign in and password –

” IT DOES NOT WORK” I said !

“WHY DID YOU CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD ” she asks ?

Well – by this time I refrain

and go to my only thought I have had for 37 years –

“IT IS NOT FOR ME TO QUESTION WHY – BUT FOR ME TO DO OR DIE “

” ME “

She then goes INTO the computer –

preforms all type of ” THINGS”

And asks me for a password I can remember –

SO I GIVE HER THE EXACT SAME ONE AS BEFORE !

And this time it works !

HONEST TO GOD !

She gets up and says to me

” YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSE TO USE A HASH TAG ” !

UNDER MY BREATH I MUTTER

” IT’S A POUND SIGN ” !

Time for a beer !

Enjoy and have a great day – just another day in Papa’s World

Papa’s World – 1982 – 2019 Couldn’t do it with out you!

That day 37 years ago – I believe was a Friday –

A little white church in a little town in SWNY state.

Sherry & Tom 1982

That is the day we were married .

Good morning

This was the second marriage for both of us –

I had two sons and she had two daughters –

And in those 37 years –

they have become almost mine.

How I feel

Our life together has many twists and turns –

Moving on

and beginning a new life in another state.

The girls followed us twenty years ago –

and here we remain today.

Tom & Sherry

Today we celebrate that love –

as best friends.

As mates for life –

Now – as we reach those years of Autumn –

We are comforted by being one –

Sherry & Tom

Happy Anniversary to the one I love –

That little white church all those years ago –

Our vows were based on the rock foundation of the church –

And it remains that way today.

Tom and Sherry

1982 to 2019 Couldn’t do it without you – we found each other.

A TRIBUTE TO MY WIFE AND BEST FRIEND

I hope you enjoyed my little blog for the day

Thank you

And welcome to Papa’s World

Papa’s World – Eating healthy – staying active – turning 70

Me – 1967 – second shift – American Olean Tile Co.

WOW – 52 years ago – over one half century – and in a few days – 70 becomes the new norm and new start of a decade. So much has changed – so much has come and gone.

I started and ended my career with the same company 47 1/2 years later !

And it is were I met and married my second wife – we celebrate 37 years next month.

On our wedding day June 25, 1982.

Sherry and I started dating in April of 1981 – we had found out in passing that we both were going through a divorce by accident. I worked in Shipping and she in payroll – as I was passing her desk – one of the other ladies said to me – “I hear you are getting a divorce” !

I answered ‘ YES” and then went my way – she quietly observed this and when she brought my shipping orders out – she told me ” I overheard . I am also getting a divorce” – to which I relied ” Then we should go and have a drink and talk about it ” !

Oahu – 2 years ago – North Shore

That began a 15 month process of dating – engagement the following December at Christmas time – and marriage in June the following year. All the while juggling two divorces and inter mixing four children into one family. My two sons and her two daughters. WE DID IT ! Not easy – but the results have been fantastic. My two sons still live back in NWPA & her two daughters both followed us South to NVA. My son runs a energy company with state contracts for the elderly and my other son has joined him. One can build a entire house from the ground up – he did not get that from me – and the other is a ranked pool player in his spare time who travels the entire country winning his way to Vegas a half dozen times.

Our two daughters are also very successful – the eldest followed her mother into the health and nutrition field and most likely will attain National Marketing Director for the Juice Plus Company at the conference in Austin Texas in October. Our other daughter also followed their mother – but she – one year ago -opened up a franchise https://www.facebook.com/529KidsConsignLoudoun/ near where we live. She maintains both the Health & Nutrition business and her new

store which is coming up up the one year anniversary. In our very busy lives – we have managed to change our lifestyle in eating – giving up a lot of what I had eaten for 35 years or more.

About to turn 70

Sherry is my rock and has been all these years – by accident we learned of one another’s dilemma – we ventured forward on a whim – and soon became friends – she is my best friend – we combined a family – and 13 years ago – she changed our lifestyle to a healthy one. She is the guiding force and well respected as a Certified Health Coach – she is a pillar to her TEAM -known and loved by all as “MAMA BEAR ” !

Just a part of her nationwide Juice Plus Company team known as TEAM GENERATIONS

In a short while on 5 -7 -49 I will turn 70 years old – and another
WE WERE MET TO BE TOGETHER ” sign – she will turn 70 on 7 – 5 – 49 !!

We eat healthy – we love healthy and we promote health. Our family in NVA has followed us not only here – but also on the pathway of HEALTH & NUTRITION ! Soon – in October – the oldest will attain the highest level in the Juice Plus Company -living life to the plus as I call it.

We attended Debby Taylor Myers promotion for the Juice Plus Company to QNMD – our oldest daughter

This is my story – this is my life – well – part of it – many other chapters to tell

My sincere thank you to my wife and our family – a new lifestyle 13 years ago and a new life 37 years ago. I am the most lucky man in the World or so I believe – and I am WINNING OFF THE FIELD ! Thank you – enjoy & HGD !

If you would like to be a part of her team – Sherry Fitzsimmons
