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 – lunch – I.C.W.- Barefoot landing – views!

Our view for lunch at Barefoot Landing!

I forget the name of the place we stopped for lunch –

but Sherry knows it from recommendations from friends

and our landlord!

It is Mexican – and has the best taco’s!

We have walked by it numerous times –

and she has said we must eat there!

It sits right on the ICW – Inter coastal Waterway!

We requested outside for social distancing!

We wear our masks – we do take them off when we are not around people.

Or – when there is room to stay distances away from them.

The view of the waterway is awesome –

watching the boats – walking the boardwalk

all while sitting at our table after the walk.

Enjoying being outside –

After lunch – we walked – around the area – enjoying the feel of Christmas.

By the time you are reading this – the Holidays have passed –

for I write ahead on a schedule I have created.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

PAPA’S WORLD!

Papa’s World – DAY # 100 with friends – RESTON VA.

We have been on the move – packing –

going back and forth to the storage unit.

So we were invited by friends to meet up at the Reston Town Center.

Where we found four chairs – placed them at least six feet apart

and sat down and ate our curbside pickup!

We met up with Jason & Ginger Child –

and while it was raining – sometimes a cloud burst

we found shelter under the covered ICE SKATE RINK

Now covered in artificial grass –

with all these colorful chairs and decorations!

Our peaceful little space – under the clear roof – with a slight rain!

It was so nice to just sit and talk – eat – and watch people –

all respecting distance – and being outside – we took our masks off

to of course eat and sip our ice teas!

The topics were one and many – the laughs – well – a way to relax.

We have a lot to be thankful for – sitting with friends outside

in the fresh air – listening to the rain –

eating lunch –

it is the little things in life that are full of surprises

Thank you Ginger for the invite!

And Jason – who works from home 7 days a week –

A chance to take a break –

Someday my friend – we shall play a round of golf!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papas World – RESPECT – the store – your peers – family

The other day we were out on a mission

To meet a lady who had masks made in Vietnam

and were high quality.

We ordered 10 of them – at less than the going price.


And they fit much better than what we had.

But we had some time – so into Wegmans we went.

And there was not one person in that store that did not have a mask on!

There were a lot of people in there.

No one complaining – shouting – just people going about shopping!

This will rub people – it will cause some of you to be disgusted

You will say your RIGHTS are being infringed upon.

But – I will say – it comes down to RESPECT!

Wearing a mask will not keep you from getting Covid19

But if you sneeze or cough

and you do not know you are affected

It will help protect those you might have coughed or sneeze on!

So much in social media – so much hatred

RESPECT for that store

RESPECT for you peers

RESPECT for your family

The path may never be the same again

The journey will be different

But – our lives still live on

and RESPECT is much needed.

We will get better at RESPECT

or it will end up being worse than Covid19.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

RESPECT – the store – your peers – family.

Papas World – things I had to do – risky – so far – good.

During this time of not knowing how this all will turn out

I had to do a couple things that were risky

and I thought long and hard about.

The first was when my front tooth felt different

and it was actually loose!

OBOY – I was in Florida and I thought just get through this

get home and take care of it there.

Then we got home- I made the appointment

and COVID 19 happened!

So I canceled and waited it out!

Then it happened – it broke off – it was a crown –

but I had a gap right in the front!

Now – I had no choice – before it got infected –

I had to go to the dentist – so I made my appointment on line.

They would only do emergency’s.

I was worried – but I went in – they were the only people there

the husband and wife dental team.

He drilled it out – the post – and put in the temp.

No shots – there was no root.

But I would have to be careful and go back

when the crown came in!

That took place over several weeks and it all came out good.

I have my new crown – they were very professional

and there were no other patients there

and they wore gowns – masks – shields – gloves

and stayed away from me when not working on my mouth!

The next thing was the car – I have maintained it right on schedule

for seven years – and it now has 122,000 miles.

I needed a oil change

the last time was back in January just before we left for Florida.

I already was over the mileage and we had driven

a lot of miles while we were in Florida.

So – I made the appointment

and in I went – hardly anyone there!

I waited all by myself

They had put distance between all the seats

and no one was in there.

I got the oil change – replaced a bulb and was on my way!

Yesterday I saw my doctor – by phone!

I now have this app where you go into her office portal

and you can see and talk to her!

Since my heart attack almost seven years ago

I see my two doctors every six months and the one every twelve months.

That part was easy – but they have to draw blood every six months.

So – today I go to the office – where they have one person at a time.

They check your temp. plus she could see me yesterday.

I am feeling good , no head ache – cough – pink eye –

Then – I must wear a mask –

they take me right in – draw the blood and I leave

as quick as possible.

God bless these front line people!

So – during all these I had to make choices

I am healthy – have not taken the FLU shot in 15 years!

I take my Juice Plus and Omegas

I drink water all day – no dairy – very little sugars –

my one vice is coffee with almond cream.

However I am doing a 16 hour shred – fast

I do not eat for 16 hours after my dinner.

And I can have no coffee so I am having a cup of tea in the morning.

Thank you

Go in Peace – thanks be to God.

Papas World – Day #26 of shelter in place.

Here we are – social distancing – sheltering in place –

searching google places we can buy food – SENIORS ONLY!

Our new way to ride our bikes
and to take our daily walks
on the 18 miles of trails we have
social distancing
giving wide berths
and crossing streets to avoid
people when possible

What has become a new norm – all in less than a months time!

Our motto has become this.

We have become puzzle experts –

Netflix bingeing on series!

Our way of still practicing
Palm Sunday

Church now is live streamed

and we attend that way.

Our Tower Garden in the garage with grow lights

We will begin to harvest this coming weekend

The other two outside with all the vines and bigger vegetables

are coming along nicely.

Putting puzzles together

My number one rule in puzzles

MUST BE RAVENBURGER puzzles

and 500 or less pieces!

Our table can not handle anymore than that!

Just a short blog on STAYING IN PLACE SHELTERING!

Welcome to Papa’s World –
