Papa’s World – The power to take your life in a new direction!

It was not easy to decide to sell our home – almost everything in it –

and move to another state – some 450 miles away!

It all started with the stock market slide – around the time the Pandemic hit!

Our retirement is in the 401 K and it took a big hit!

But – there is always a but!

The housing market was taking off!

From the last reduction in prices around 2006 –

and losing in that market –

We were now almost even – a rebound!

And it was going up!

Our oldest grand kids – Maddy Sarah Ella

With the three oldest grand kids

One in college – one in the fall in college and one who has a life of her own

And the three little ones – we would make it a point to return often –

after all – we were retired – and Sherry had her home based business –

that could go anywhere with phone and internet service

We would sell!

AND WE DID!

After 14 1/2 years – with the downturn behind us in the housing market

WE MADE A PROFIT and had all of our equity!

We followed our plan – sold our house and furniture –

for three months we went back and forth between our daughters houses!

We had our equity to either rent – or buy – we had choices!

And then by chance – I stumbled upon this – having no thought of moving to S.C. !

Our view today – we left end of September and went to North Myrtle Beach to Ocean Keyes!

Since that time – we have been home twice – holidays for three weeks – and now for a week!

The grand kids have been down – the little ones – and by the time you read this –

the older ones will have been here!

Our family – when we returned for a visit.

Our family when they came to visit!

We have started a new life – away but close enough to make it home in seven hours.

We are happy in our senior years – living life to the plus each day!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY

A new life – walking the beach every day –

We have each other – we have family and we have friends.

It was not easy – but God works in ways I can not explain.

We have started a new life and a new house build!

It will be done around the early part of June!

We had no idea a year ago we would be doing this!

Papa’s World – Twins birthday – MARLEY puppy – and cousin Sarah comes to visit!

The twins turned eleven years old – Cassidy and Taylor birthday!

Yes – they are twins – and they had to be taken out early because Taylor was taking all the nourishment!

Today – Cassidy is normal for her age but Taylor is going to be real tall – like her MORMOR –

Swedish for MOTHERSMOTHER!

Sherry is 5′ 9″ and she will be taller than that.

Bode – who turns eight is also going to be tall and here is cousin Sarah – who at soon to be 15 – is gaining on Sherry!

We went back to NVA to watch the little ones and the puppy Marley – and Sarah came for overnight!

MARLEY at six months old – a puppy who likes to play keep away and run and run.

She is adorable and is a Goldendoodle – judging by her feet – she will be very large! She is so friendly and loving.

But – you must make sure to keep things out of reach as she tends to chew – thus she stood up and grabbed the hat of our son in law and that became history! LOL

And at night – after all day with MARLEY and the little ones – sleep was welcomed! LOL
A very proud grandmother – Sherry with all four – missing the two oldest who are in college – best birthday among

the cousins celebrating by a road trip with Debby and Sarah into Washington D.C. to the city ZOO!

ME – I GOT TO HANG WITH MARLEY!

PAPA’S WORLD livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – we had AIRLINE vouchers to use – flying back home to NVA – parents gone – watching grandkids

CASSIDY BODE TAYLOR 3 little grandkids!

Before the Pandemic hit – we were flying to Phoenix for a health conference – then it was canceled –

So we have had all this money tied up in two vouchers!

Fast forward – “Why not use part of them for flying back to NVA – instead of driving – to watch over the kids!”

Their parents had a out of state ( Vermont) family wedding – no children – adults only – and we said yes –

we would come up for the long weekend – and stay with them and the new puppy – MARLEY!

MASKS ARE REQUIRED IN THE AIRPORT AND PLANE THE ENTIRE TIME – I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH THAT!

We had to arrive early at North Myrtle Beach International airport – and there in was a problem.

The week before we had taken our drivers test ( stressed out for two months) for N.C.

Hint for drivers test – study all the signs and know what they are for even if they are blank!

There are special shapes!

And we passed – new drivers license ( paper form) and real ID to come in the mail.

We put our VA. license away ( mistake number one) and our new paper ID in our wallets.

(mistake number two) Keep both of them until in the mail you get the hard real ID!

Even though we had TSA clearence – we had to go thru as if we were fakes and maybe

causing a problem – which meant everything had to be searched( I had no problem with this)

and mistake number three ( take your passports when flying)!

All of that could of been avoided – it was our own fault – but we made it only to worry ( STRESS)

the return from NVA through a much bigger ( DULLES) and more stringent examination due to the fact

that the agent was training a new agent! ( NO PROBLEM WITH THAT!)

And yes it was stressful but we made it!

Waiting at MYRTLE BEACH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FOR OUR FLIGHT ON AMERICAN AIRLINES!
It all worked out and now I can laugh at it!

Just a senior moment – we knew better but hey – we are old and sometimes not as organized as we used to be!

But – we arrived – our daughter picked us up and we were on our way to their house – the grandkids and MARLEY!

MARLEY and CASSIDY – the new puppy and one of the twin girls – fraternal twins!

This was the beginning of a six day stay – two days with the parents – leaving and coming back –

and four days with grandkids and the puppy – a GOLDENDOODLE – who is going to be very large!

But – in our senior wisdom – we had plans to keep them busy and with these three –

it is when you get done “PAPA – when are we going to do the next thing”?

They are busy all the time except when on IPAD’S or BODE asking for my phone!

Then it is complete silence – except MARLEY who as a puppy gets into everything!

All has to be put up out of reach but she is really good – goes to the door when she wants out –

and plays run and hide and stay out of reach when you try to catch her to bring her in –

towel off her extra big feet – I found holding dog food and saying treat she would come! LOL

Taylor – who is on her way to being six feet tall – 11 years old – Bode – who never stays still except on my phone – Marley who is only six months old and is going to be huge – and Cassidy – who although shorter – is right on spot being a 11 year old!

Taylor is the quiet one of the three – always doing what told – and is the one who tkaes full care of Marley.

She is a sweetheart – sometimes you do not even know she is around!

BODE is in motion all the time – all boy and in the dead of winter – no socks and no shoes and outside!

Soccer – riding bike – golfing with his father – smart and outgoing – but can be a handful!

Cassidy – sweet – does crafts all the time – loves her MORMOR( Sherry) and calls and zooms all the time.

She takes after Sherry and is by her side all the time.

It broke my heart when it was time to leave – she came out for the third time to say goodbye –

hugs and asking when we will see her again –

then as we are pulling out to go to the airport – inside the garage standing on the step –

peeking out to us so she could see us leave – so lonely – and not wanting us to leave!

She misses us more than the other two!

Next blog will be contiued on our visit and the grandkids – WHEW – keeping them busy is a fulltime job!

Paps’s World – Taylor – Cassidy and Bode – first day of school and Marley walking to bus stop!

On Wednesday – it marked the first day of school for fifth grade for Taylor and Cassidy and first grade for Bode.

It also was the first day for Marley – the new goldendoodle – to walk to the bus stop!

I think she has become Tayor’s to walk as she takes her all the time.

Taylor – Marley – Bode in the back and Cassidy!

At first Marley would not walk just plopping down in the middle of the sidewalk – where Taylor would pick her up and carry her – but I think she has gotten over the puppy stage now – and Taylor seems to be the one who controls her!

The three plus the dog walk a couple blocks down the street to where the school bus stops and picks them up.

We are headed there and by the time you read this will already been and came back home again.

The parents are going out of state to a wedding and we will fly home( using a few vouchers we had)

to stay with the kids and Marley.

It will be a extended weekend – and looking forward to seeing everyone including Deb – Mike and Sarah.

The other two oldest are now in college.

To think one year ago – we did the same thing – only we had sold our home and stayed there for two months until we moved to S.C. – going back and forth to Winmchester and Leesburg.

We helped out with the home schooling due to the pandemic.

The kids did well but need to structure of school and friends and classmates.

Taylor in the lead with Marley and then Cassidy followed by Bode – walking to the bus stop.

Papa’s World – The arrival of the “LITTLE ONES”

Sherry on arrival at Myrtle Beach International Airport with Cassidy – Bode and Taylor.

Sherry flew back to NVA to watch the twins in a play and because both parents work – instead of them paying

for a couple weeks at summer camp –

they bought plane tickets instead and she flew back with them for me to pick up!

The parents were coming down the following week anyways for a in law family vacation about a hour South of us.

We spent the day yesterday with them – in the sun and the warm water of the ocean.

They were so excited and we planned a full week with them. A few dust ups as childeren will have –

But once we seperated the two –

Cassidy and Bode – it was fine.


Taylor – who is only ten years old – will be taller than her MorMor ( Sherry ) who is 5’9″.

They were so excited to do a number of things – being a gradparent can be exhausting! LOL
After seeing the POWER BOAT ride and wanting to go right away – the little guy got nervous!

I had purchased the tickets for he and I – and while standing in line he said to me –

“Papa – can we get a refund”?

“No” I said.

“PAPA – I am scared – will you hold onto me”?

OF COUSE and I did and he loved it – wanting to go again!

About to start out – Bode and I in the back seat – where it seemed all the water came in and on top of us!

PAPA’S WORLD : livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – our Leesburg family – little ones – mother & father and now Marley!

Marcus – Cassidy – Tammy – baby Bode – Taylor THE KROHNS!

They now live just outside of Leesburg Va. about 30 minutes from where we used to live.

Whenever we do go home – we have a bedroom and bath in the basement – along with a suite of other rooms.

There is a walk out to the fenced in back yard.

Out there is a fire pit – huge patio and a pergola – multiple chairs and some rockers and a outdoor table and chairs we left behind.

A Boce court that was there when they bought the house – really beautiful setting!

The back yard fountain next to the patio and fire pit.

Now – there is a new addition – MARLEY – the goldendoodle – Tammy’s dog – that she wanted – a big dog to walk!

Marley and Tammy – waiting for the storm to roll in!

She has always wanted a dog – but it had to be THE DOG!

The kids love her – Taylor has a way with her as she does with horses!

She – Marley – has now become a major part of the family! Here – she sits looking at the neighbors Mastiff – she runs over and they race back and forth on each owns side of the fence.
Marcus has now taken up cross country on his bicycle – going 89 miles through hills – gravel roads etc. in a race with other’s – finishing well up in the pack for his first race!

ELLA: Love you – PAPA’S WORLD – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – Mother and Daughters – Sherry – Debby and Tammy! Beautiful inside and out!

Dreams – mother and daughters share the DREAM!

They laugh – cry – hold one another – all the while sharing life together – even though they are 300 miles apart

The bond exists each and every day!

Debby – the oldest – Sherry – known as Grandma and MorMor – Tammy – the youngest.

When we decided to move to NVA in 1999 – Tammy decided right away to follow us down to Va.

In one years time – Debby moved with her husband and small one year old daughter Maddy!

They have always been near each other – 3 hours away and no further.

Daughter and Mother

Sherry decided to become a CERTIFIED HEALTH COACH – and start her own business from home –

As a away to supplement her retirement income – it worked and she retired early!

Network marketing – in HEALTH and NUTRITION!

Today – that business thrives and allows us the freedom to travel –

move and build a new home.

In that same since – 15 years ago – Debby decided to do the same – with two young children –

And moving out to the country as it was cheaper to live – she also followed her mothers footsteps!

She became a CERTIFIED HEALTH COACH – and started her own business from home –

And surpassed her mother!

Today – they both lead “TEAM GENERATIONS” – promoting health and nutrition for families and children.

Daughter and Mother – Tammy and Sherry

During that time – Tammy married – had twin girls and then our first grandson!

She also followed her mother into the Health and Nutrition field – establishing her own home based business.

Along the way she quit her job and opened up a Upscale children’s consignment shop –

And has recently added another home based business – promoting healthy eating!

She now runs three business’s!

And it is because she is her mother’s daughter!

IMAGINE – ACT – EMULATE – LEAD – DUPLICATE – SUCCEED – SUCCESS!

The story of Mother and Daughters – although now 300 miles away – following her in her footsteps –

always in contact – we visit and they visit – zoom – text or call.

Promoting HEALTH and NUTRITION – one child – one day at a time.

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY – FAMILY MEETS FRIENDS!

Papa’s World – random pictures – kids – golf – and a rainbow in the fountain on the lake.

Today – I post some pictures – just random pictures – but ones I have close to my heart!
Taylor holding MorMor’s hand – in turn MorMor also holding Bode’s hand.

They adore Sherry – whom they call MorMor – Swede for Mothers Mother!

When we walk with all three – it usually is Taylor who loses out to the other two in holding her hands.

This time it was Cassidy – who with each passing day – is becoming more and more independent.

These two are coming closer and closer together as they grow up.

They are twins – but had to come early as Taylor was taking all the nutrients.

Taylor is going to be really tall – close to six foot while Cassidy will be like her mother 5’6″.

Taylor loves to ride horses – Cassidy has a variety of interests –

but will sit for hours drawing off her computer and is really good!

I thought this to be funny – it brought a smile to my face!

We moved south to find more time to golf – warmer weather and being close to our friends!

Sherry and Cindy – we have been friends with the McBrides for almost 35 years.

They moved about 25 or 26 years to the Wilmington N.C. area – and we would spend time with them once or twice a year.

Then we moved to NVA and they would do the same.

Now – we are building a new home about 40 miles away from them –

and if the weather is nice – we golf once a week with them –

always on a new course – could be on the weekend or a week day.

They can and do stay with us and we do the same with them.

If our new home is not done on time and we have to give up the condo – they have offered us a place to stay.

FRIENDS! GOOD TIMES! LAUGHS!

This is what we have wanted to do for a very long time – it was too expensive in NVA and down here so many courses to choose from.

We both have a love to golf – one of Sherry’s highlights in golfing came with the day she broke 50 –

and it was a day she was golfing with her father!

A memory she shall always carry with her on the course. Now – she beats me! LOL

The view we have almost every morning when we wake up – the master bedroom has a big glass sliding door on her side of the bed – where all she has to do each morning is open her eyes and see this.

I see it each morning also – but I always am up before the dawn – have been that way all my life.

My favorite time of the day – writing my blog – sipping my coffee and watching the sun rise –

listening to the sounds of nature and just enjoying morning time.

Now the sun shines – causing a rainbow in the mist of the water fountain!
A peaceful setting we shall miss when we leave – but we have had by the end – nine months.

A memory we shall carry forward into the new home.

You can hear the pounding surf a half mile away –

We walk there almost every day –

the water fowl – geese – ducks – mallards – swans – otter – turtles – snakes

and really huge fish we can see when we look down onto the water.

Storms blowing in and out – rain and wind – nature at its best.

It would of been nice to have lived to the left of the picture – single family homes!

But – they were way too expensive – and the condos here – not enough space and no garage.

We have a storage unit – not a lot – but enough so that it would not fit.

The town houses here besides the condo’s – were out of our price range –

plus the one we looked at – needed a lot of work.

This is a beautiful area – one I shall remember –

We were blessed to have spent time here – but it also was expensive!

Papa’s World – finally – we got a warm day for the beach and water – FAMILY KROHN!

TAYLOR CASSIDY BODE

Once it was in the mid to high ’70’s and full sun –

Into the water they went!

Notice how protective Cassidy is of her little brother!

They fight and argue – but no one touches him according to her!

These two should have been the twins

they act and sound just alike.

She is so kind – loving and thoughtful.

Cassidy and Bode – two peas in a pod!
Taylor – or “TATTER TOT” as her cousin Ella calls her!

She on the other hand loves her alone time away from the other two! LOL!

She rides horses – and whenever around her MorMor – holds her hand.

She is the serious – studious one who quotes facts!

“AS AMATTER OF FACT” she says and then goes on to tell you!

BODE – after FIVE GRAND DAUGHTERS – he is the only boy and all boy!
Only six years old – and will be tall like Taylor!
Bode – cars – trucks – bikes – playing Army – running – riding – scraps – bruises – scabs – star wars – monsters – independent – never wearing shoes or socks and shirtless in the cold!

It was a very warm day in the sun – water to me was very cold – but they loved it!

Taylor is goin to be really tall like her MorMor – I think close to six foot!

They played and played in the water – coming out to run up and tell us something and then back they went!

For us – it was sit and take it all in – the sun was warm which is what I like!
Cassidy – small but a spitfire! Always calling her MorMor as does Bode! Love you Papa she says!

Yes – the sun was warm – the sand was also – yet the water was cold – but to them – it was their day at the beach!

Papa’s World – Alligator adventure – Family Krohn

One of the things they wanted to do was see alligators!

And here in North Myrtle Beach is a place called ALLIGATOR ADVENTURE!

There are hundreds of the reptiles in there!

The biggest being 20 feet long and weighing 2000 lbs. !

This is a picture of a alligator being fed by one of the employees! This was not the really big one!

They got to watch the feeding – I wonder how they feed all these alligators and how they make sure all get fed!

They even had a albino alligator!

They have other animals – birds and snakes!

These weighed 3 or 4 hundred pounds and there were three of them!

Papa’s World – just some random thoughts and pictures of the family Krohn.

The Krohn family and Sherry – granddaughters – daughter and son in law.

They have visited for almost a week.

The weather – bearable – low 60’s to low 70’s but with chilly wind.

Marcus and I took Bode out golfing on Monday!

He has pretty good form and Marcus is getting him lessons.

He is only six years old and I think the highlight for him is driving the golf cart! LOL

I told Marcus – you need to get him lessons plus doing cross country

He almost ran the whole golf course!

Taylor Sherry ( MorMor) Bode

They walked to the beach every day.

Most days I would drive the car down as we had all the chairs and beach stuff!

Some days – as in this picture – we all walked carrying the “STUFF”!

Daddy and Taylor – she is a little daddy’s girl!
Cassidy and Daddy – independent little spitfire – but very caring – for her brother and sister.
Bode and Daddy – all boy – trucks – tools – sports – running – full of energy – barefoot – coat less – teasing – BOY!

Yesterday was a full beach day – warm – sun – and kids in the water!

Too cold for me – but in the sun – hot!

Taylor – Cassidy and Bode – notice how Cassidy takes care of Bode!

Such a protective little girl – a heart of warmth!

Papa’s World – Coloring eggs on the lanai -exploring Barefoot Landing – LITTLE ONES!

One of the first things Sherry did for the little ones after they had a good nights sleep-

Was to color Easter Eggs!

So – she hard boiled the eggs – set up on the Lanai – and they got to it!

Taylor Cassidy Bode – on the Lanai overlooking the small lake at Ocean Keyes – coloring Easter Eggs!

This has been a tradition with MorMor – as they call her -Swede for Mothers Mother!

She has done this even before Bode – who is six was born!

Afterward – things were washed up and packed for Tammy to take back to NVA!

Cassidy Bode Taylor

I think Cassidy and Bode should of been the twins!

They are so much alike and act the same.

It is hard for me to tell the difference if I am not looking at them – to see who is talking!

Now – Bode is going to be tall like Taylor – who is so laid back!

She likes her “TAYLOR” time!

She also is going to be the tallest of the granddaughters

With Maddy being 5′ 6″ – Ella 5′ 8 1/2 ” and Sarah pushing Ella at 14 years old!

We took the family to Barefoot landing in North Myrtle Beach –

We had taken them there before and the little ones love the playground!

There was a Easter Egg hunt – scavenger – find the different stores hunt going on!
Cassidy at one of our favorite stores!
Cassidy and Taylor with I think Frozen Princess’s

Then it was time for a late lunch – our reservations were ready!

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa” World – looking back in time – THE TWINS – Taylor and Cassidy – such sweetness!

A little over 10 years ago – they came along – so tiny – early – because they determined one was taking all the nutrition.

And – the day they decided this – just happened to be their mother’s birthday!

That is right – mother and daughters now celebrate the same day birthdays!

IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME!

Cassidy and Taylor – they were so small with Taylor weighing some 13 oz. more!

Does not sound like much – but they both weighed some 3 lbs. plus oz. !

Through out life for them – Taylor has always been the bigger of the two.

They were so darn cute – playing hide and seek!

Cassidy is a little spit fire – Taylor more laid back!

They continue to grow this way – my thought is – Cassidy will end up taller than her mother who is
5′ 6″ tall – and Taylor is taking after her MorMor ( Sherry 5’9″) and will be close to 6’0 when all is said and done! She already is over 5′ at ten years old! Look at Cassidy’s socks!
Taylor and Bode with MorMor( Sherry) Bode is going to be tall also as he is only six years old!

Sweetness – Taylor rides horses – Cassidy is the more serious type – she teaches the other two crafts.

Taylor is always ready to help her in schoolwork –

Cassidy the more daring one – you can just tell that by the picture!

Both love their MorMor and both will call her!

The little SPIT FIRE! Cassidy – ” Someday I am going to be big” she says!

She has the biggest heart – always watching over the other two – her and Bode are two peas in a pod!

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – life with the three oldest granddaughters – growing up!

These three are anything but this!

They love playing games – competitive games!

They play sports – the two oldest – soccer – and one is in college playing

and the second – next fall will do the same.

The youngest is into dance – loves the arts – and wants to go to NYC!

When they were little – Sarah – Maddy – Ella with their father and mother.

All three love their Grandma – laughing with her and at her!

She loves to take them shopping – getting nails done and ear piercings! Here – Sherry – Sarah – 14 years old – Maddy – 20 years old – Ella – 17 years old – Sherry is 5′ 9″ tall – they all are tall!

We took Sarah and Ella for a week to the beach last summer –

We took Maddy to swim with the Manatee’s for her 16th. birthday

We took Ella to Disney Star wars for her 16th. birthday

And now when Sarah reaches 16 – she wants to go to NYC and Broadway!

I will sit that one out – her mother can take my place!

Maddy has made the leap to college – now in her Sophomore year

as a Freshman she played in 13 games at the University of Lynchburg – Va.

And has maintained a GPA – over a 3.85!

She just played this past weekend – having one assist –

one barely missed assist and one barely missed shot on goal.

They won 2 to 0!

Mike Debby Ella

Ella will finish her H.S. soccer this Spring –

She had two colleges to pick from and choose Randolpf College in Lynchburg Va.

Just across town from her sister and they will compete against one another!

Maddy Ella Sherry Sarah

Sarah is all about fashion – no interest in soccer at all!

Although when little – she played as well as her older sisters!

She loves to dance in competitions when younger and shows.

Her goal is one day to create fashions and design – produce movies – acting!

All three are like this – beautiful on the inside – smiling on the outside – living life to the good.

Papa’s World – Walking the beach in the chilly – windy – air – living life!

North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

It has a way of pulling you – the sound – the air – and the chill!

We try to walk the beach every day – except during the rain!

I bundle up – because I do get cold easily!

They told me I would after I had my heart attack some 7 1/2 years ago.

And – that is true – I really do not like being cold!

Papa – neck warmer – ear muffs – gloves – warm jacket – I detest wearing hats!

So – this winter – I will take the chill – some rain – actually a lot of rain –

and some wind – but – I dress warm and toasty!

Papa walking the beach – staying warm!

I have found – NO SNOW – NO ICE – can make up for that chilly air and wind-

as long as I am warm I can and do walk!

Sherry – taking a picture of a deserted beach – she does not get as cold as I do.

Sometimes we are the only ones out there!

We will try it until the wind drives us off –

Sand blowing in ones face and eyes – well – I can do without that!

But then the Sun comes out – and those warming rays make all the difference!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World!

Papa’s World – we got a letter from Bode – “I love you Papa and Mor Mor”!

Bode – around three years old

The letter was in the mail – it was from our son in law

We knew it was coming – he was forwarding some mail to us.

But – inside was a surprise – a letter from our six year old grand son BODE!

He started virtual kindergarten from home this year!

Because of how his birthday falls – his parents held him back .

Instead of being the youngest in his class – he now is the oldest.

The letter above is something I cherish – when we stayed with them

after we sold our house – every morning before 6 am.

Down the stairs he would come to their finished basement.

We had a bedroom – bathroom – living room – storage room and another living room!

He would climb up on my lap as I wrote my blog.

Papa – what are you writing about today? He would ask!

This was everyday – he would spend time with me – before he headed upstairs.

On the back of the letter – he drew a picture – a Su bmarine! LOL

He calls us both – using a type of zoom message system.

He tells us what he has been doing – or showing his latest toy.

The night before we moved to S.C – we had a fun night out with the family.

This week – the week of 2-15-21 – as I write this blog ahead of time to post later

For the first time – he will get on the bus by himself – and go to school.

He needed it – as learning from home is just not for him.

So – for two days a week – he goes to school – the other three is virtual.

His sisters are doing all virtual as they love it and are doing good.

His mother’s post on face book.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

We have been friends since first grade – Bob and I.

We played sports together – stayed at one anothers homes.

and in between.

Always planning new adventures.

Friends as neighbors since 1987!

Papa Jim Sherry Dottie – they have been married 40 years – and I knew them both before that – Jimmy and I played softball together for two teams in the late ’70’s!

Jim – Dottie and I all grew up in the same town in Pa. called Eldred.

Jim -Sherry and I all worked together in Olean N.Y.

It has been a long and rewarding friendship all these years.

When all the kids were young – we would vacation together at the beach.

Carol and Mike John, neighbors for 12 1/2 years in WNY!

We were neighbors and they were Buck and Cindy’s friends.

We lived beside them for 12 1/2 years

We would race our ride mowers up and down the street! LOL

We would play jokes on each other.

It was a great time in our lives and the McBrides and us left the hood

shortly after they left and moved South.

The John’s own a painting corp that travels the USA

painting various structures and energy companies pipe lines.

We will spend a long weekend with them at the lake house in WNY!

The Browns and McBrides also.

Jo Paul Peterson and Sherry

Jo graduated one year behind me

Paul graduated with Sherry from Smethport.

We got to know one another through reunions

and have traveled to their home in Phoenix and them to ours before the pandemic.

We have maintained that friendship for the last ten years or so.

Here we are at the WALL in DC.

Reflections of the soul I call this.

Gerhard and Jennie – our son in laws parents

For the last 14 years or more – we have bonded with his parents.

Always visiting them when we lived in NVA.

They have come down to visit us in North Myrtle Beach.

In laws and friends – FAMILY!

Our little group get together to golf.

There are times we try to bring us all together to golf.

Wish it would happen more often.

But when it does – it is fun and guys vs. gals!

If we are not on our game – they will beat us! LOL

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.

Maya Olivia Kristie and CASSIDY’S make a wish seashell – our grand daughter!

We arrived – The Make A Wish Tree area –

along the ICW in Little River S.C.

at the Vereen Memorial Garden!

The girls were excited – because we told them – their cousins had been there

a couple weeks prior!

We showed them the sea shells they had made and signed!

So they went about finding shells!

So may shells to look at!

They took their time – looking with the help of their parents and Sherry!

Casey Kristie Olivia

Now it was time!

Spread them out on the bench – string them – and write your wish!

Found the spot on the tree – where their cousins left their names and added theirs!

Papa’s World – another beautiful sunrise and then a cool day of golf!

Waking up to this every morning – at the end of June – nine months of this – memories for a lifetime!
Golfing with our close friends at a golf course way out in the country of N.C.

We awoke to a beautiful sunrise – a bit chiily –

But the forecast called for low 50’s but Sunny!

It makes a big difference with hardly any wind!

As the Sun continues to rise – clouds form but are suppose to clear away!

I have come to accept here in S.C. – that the day changes dramatically

the higher the Sun gets in the sky!

So – you prepare for the day – getting a mental image in your mind

dress in layers – drink your coffee or tea

and know that the day – will turn out okay!

Another painted canvas by nature!

So it goes – sunrise – sunshine – cool but no wind – warmth.

A fine day to be alive and a fine day to golf with friends!

Papa’s World – a little lunch-dinner with grand kids at Local on the water!

We all were hungry!

So – where do you go during a pandemic – social distancing?

We had been hiking the trails of Vereen Memorial Gardens!

The little ones had some snacks but it was not enough.

So – we decided to take them to “LOCAL ON THE WATER”!

Cassidy Taylor Bode and Mormor in the background!

There was one other couple there – outside – so we had the entire place to ourselves!

The kids loved it – swinging – sand pit – corn hole – and watching the boats

go up and down the ICW!

Cassidy – Bode – two peas in a pod!

Here came a tugboat – leading a flotilla of telephone poles!

This caught the eyes of all three!

There were three tug boats with all these poles in the water between them!

One after another they passed – the poles had cables attached –

the lead tug guided them – the middle tug kept the front and rear poles in a line!

The last and third tug boat!

The third tug brought up the rear – all in all it stretched the length of at least a football field!

We were all just watching it pass by!

We have been here before – at least three times!

And have found that during the afternoon –

hardly anyone is here – making social distancing perfect!

Bode and Cassidy!

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!

FAMILY – MORMOR – MEMORIES!

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!

MORMOR – Swedish for MOTHERS-MOTHER – that has become her name for the three little ones!

Sherry has introduced crafts to all the grand kids –

and to this day – the three older ones still do crafts!

Taylor Bode Cassidy 10 6 10 years old.

All you have to do is say craft and the go right to the table – no fuss!

Busy once again – crafting – she teaches them and now Cassidy helps the other two. She is the one who texts – calls or zooms her MORMOR every day!
Cassidy – who can do any craft by herself – and often sets by herself with her IPAD – listening to instructions and creates pictures and drawings that are much larger than what she sees on the IPAD – drawing freestyle!

The older ones have that same talent – Ella has won awards for her creations.

Taylor – whom loves her alone time – building farms – houses – horses out of LEGO’S!
Bode -the one who is hard to slow down – always on the move – loves his craft time with MORMOR!

She teaches them – one at a time – not only crafts – but life itself!

Here they are after creating their make a shell wish – and MorMor helping to hang those wishes!

Papa’s World – find a seashell – write a name and date – and then make a wish!

There is a place – next to the ICW – in Vereen Memorial Park – where you find a shell – date it and your name – hang it from a tree – and then make a wish – hundreds of the hang and this one is from our Taylor!
At ten years old – she already is five foot tall – she will someday be taller I think than her MorMor( Sherry) who is 5′ 9″ must be the Swede coming through!
I am little – some day I will be bigger – so she says – but every day she either calls or texts her MorMor ( Sherry ) and that sweet little soft voice – “I love you MorMor ” here she hangs her wish!
Cassidy showing her shell for a wish! I think she looks just like Taylor in this picture!
Bode – hanging his seashell wish – the only boy out of six grand children!

They came to spend a long weekend with us –

seeing where we live and where we are building our new home!

They were so excited – and hiking was on our things to do!

We had told them there was a place to make a wish and hang the shells from a tree!

But first you must search for the right shell

then date it and put your name on it!

We had driven past this park dozens of times as we went to golf and also after we bought our lot!

Always saying – we need to stop and check it out –

might be a good place to bring the grand kids as they all

like to hike and explore!

Papa Cassidy Taylor and Bode

So – we did and then when they came down – we went for a hike –

out through the marsh – into the trees – a sand trail – pathway –

I had a map as it splits off several times!

I guess in the warmer months you will see gators in the marsh!

The little ones are always curious – exploring – seeing and asking questions!

But – they also stay close – ever watchful –

and tend to hang with MorMor!

Sherry – ( MorMor) Swede for Mother’s Mother – loves to lead and show them – explain what everything is!
They also listen to her!

Papa’s World – deserted beach – and then a helicopter overhead – two men in the open back hatch!

It was cold – a little wind – and no one on the beach!

But we braved the cold and started to walk –

at least the wind was not blowing –

But – there was no one!

In both directions it was like this!

As we walked in the solitude –

we both could hear what we thought was a plane!

As it got closer – we could see it was a huge helicopter!

If you look close you can see two men sitting in the back

with their legs hanging over the edge!

No way for me as heights and me do not mix!

One time I went to the top of the Empire State building

One step outside to the deck and I froze!

I had to go back inside and down as fast as I could.

No big cities for me as I fell like everything is closing in on me!

It was a memory I shall have for the rest of my life –

and this one was another one!

It was not going fast so we had time to take it all in

on a deserted beach on a cold day!

Papa’s World – Living our dreams to the plus – one day at a time!

I have been fascinated by the beach – sand – surf and the waves my entire life!

When we were firs married – we went to the beach in the Outer Banks.

Our goal each year was to take the kids to the beach for vacation.

I always dreamed of one day – to somehow work close to the beach –

I would always say ” I am going to sell hot dogs on the beach – just so I could be there”!

Papa and Sherry ( MorMor) Swedish for MothersMother!

Today – everyday where we are –

we are living that dream.

We sold our home back in NVA.

Along with most furniture

and are renting a condo in Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach S.C.

And we walk 1/2 mile through the gated community – to the beach!

Cold weather – I was like this – warm walking weather – I am ready to go!

Anything in the Sun – mid 40’s to mid 50’s and no wind – I am for it!

But – snow – wind – ice (slip and fall) I am out of there!

We searched and searched – condo’s – homes – rentals – different areas until we realized – it was equal to just build what we want!

So – we pulled the trigger – after we said to ourselves – we do not want to renovate at our age.

We want to live our remaining lives while we can –

playing golf – exploring and walking the beaches!

When we went back home for Christmas – we had our plans and showed the kids. We were ready to go – waiting for the start date!

We made our selections before Thanksgiving – the paper work was done –

The deposit made – banking finalized –

And when we returned from NVA –

We went to the lot –

THE FORMS WERE IN TO POUR THE FOUNDATION!

Our dream is about to take place.

We have found our shopping stores – and are exploring the area –

Golfing is everywhere and the beach is four miles away!

We are on the mainland and cross the ICW to get to the beach.

Now – we will wait to get a close date-

we have to buy furniture and move from storage what we have left.

Our dream is about to become a reality – walking the beach – warm weather –

Thank you for reading Papa’s World –

our 2020 has been stressful with the Pandemic

our lives are changed and social distancing the norm.

But – our dream continues on –

Papa”s World – Walking with friends on the beach!

Good morning – afternoon or evening!

Or just plain GOOD DAY!

Good day is what we had when the first morning of our friends stay-

we all walked to the beach – and it started to sprinkle

even though the Sun was shining!

The start of a fantastic three days was blessed with a RAINBOW!

Even though there was a light rain –

just enough to get you a little wet

we pushed on – to the beach!

A pathway – the sound of the surf – and toes in the sand!

Papa Jim Cindy

The ocean and sand has a way of making everything okay!

The rain had stopped –

and it was warm – not cold – at least for people from the North

as we all are from NWPA and WNY!

We are seniors – well most of us are

but – we are aging healthy – all of us!

Walking the beach – first morning with friends

before a day of golfing and then dinner

This has been our life throughout the years

The beach is new – but the friends are ageless!

From one rain bow to one walk on the beach

A little rain – a lot of laughter

Papa’s World – BODE – only grandson – birthday – age 6!

Cassidy BODE Taylor

Our daughters gave us five grand daughters –

family dinners were 8 females – 3 males!

And then – along came BODE!

The first grandson in our little family!

BODE

Even when he was too little to walk

I would push him in the stroller

and one time we passed a open garage door

and he became very excited – pointing to a car parked there.

It was a antique Corvette!

He is all boy – trucks – bikes – helmets and no shoes!

Turning six years old – Bode – as he always is – no shoes!

Off he goes outside – no snow – no ice and no shoes!

Riding his bike – playing baseball – chasing his sisters or running away !

He has this thing of bare feet!

Every morning as I drank my cup of coffee –

when we stayed with them before we moved South

Down the stairs he would come

early – 6:00 am.

And “Hello Papa” !

And climb up into my lap as I wrote my blogs!

Mommy – and Bode – mother and son

First boy in the little family.

He and Cassidy are two peas in the pod!

Yet – he loves Taylor – calling her name.

Cassidy is the protective one – always watching over him.

All three together excited – I can not tell who is saying what

if I am not in the same room with them.

I am hoping to have them here – on the beach – in the sand – running – laughing!
Daddy and Bode – going golfing!

For his Christmas – we gave to him – his first little set of golf clubs

a bag – balls and tees.

There is a video of him his daddy took

Hat on backward – ball on a tee in the fairway

stepping up – the ball falls off the tee – he picks it up

places it back and steps up to the ball

His stance perfect and all of a sudden he swings

You hear the club hit the ball – and his daddy laugh

It leaves the tee and sails down the fairway!

“WAY TO GO BODE” his daddy says!

I think we have a soccer player and a golfer!

I am not too old to enjoy what the years will bring!

First grandson – all boy – yet sentimental – caring for his sisters.

One day he will be the one protecting them!

Happy birthday little one – BODE – six years old – first grandson!

Papa’s World – out of pop tarts – ginger bread houses – baking cookies!

Tis the season! We are back home in NVA!

And Sherry and the little ones are baking cookies!

Bode – Taylor – Cassidy – made these Ginger – Bread houses out of POP TARTS!

They followed Sherry’s instructions –

Then it was time to bake cookies!

Bode – Taylor – Cassidy – followed MORMOR’S instructions – and each decorated their own.

They each rolled out the cookie dough –

and each one cut out the cookies.

They then decorated the ones they made!

They love baking with their MorMor – in Swedish – mother’s mother!

And – as she does every year and their favorite

CHEX MIX!

All the grand kids love this when she makes it!
TIS THE SEASON

We are spending three weeks back and forth between the two daughters houses.

And as with the young grand children

She also baked cookies with the older ones!

Have a Merry Christmas everyone!

From our hearts to yours!

Paps’s World – missing the little ones!

We have been gone from their home two weeks.

Yet – almost every day – one of the little ones

will face time or call.

Cassidy loves her MORMOR

she is the one who I think misses us the most.

She would come down those stairs to say good night

give hugs and this would happen several times!

She was always asking when we would come back.

Bode – so much like Cassidy but all boy!

Every morning without fail

from 6 to 6:15 AM.

Down those stairs he would come or if I were on the front porch

climb up onto my lap.

” I LOVE YOU PAPA”!

As simple as that!

Taylor or “T” as I call her

so mature – so kind – who only wants to ride horses!

She takes lessons once a week –

She knows how to groom them and saddle them

how to clean their hooves.

“T” who just wants her ALONE time-

in her room reading or playing with her horses and lego’s!

WHEN THEY WERE YOUNGER!

We spent almost three months with them

One time they spent a year with us.

Sherry is their “MORMOR”

Swedish for MOTHER’S MOTHER!

That is all they have ever called her.

Bode at five is now golfing with his daddy!
“T” is so fast growing up!
Cassidy is the one who teaches the others crafts – just as her MORMOR teaches others!
Cassidy is her MORMOR’S SHADOW!

Yes – missing the three little ones

The older three are growing up

one in college – one about to graduate

and one who wants to be with grandma!

The three little ones – who are young enough

to see we are now at a distance and call all the time.

And then there is Tammy – their mother

who in all her life has never lived more that two hours away

This is where the little ones get it from

MORMOR – MOTHERS MOTHER

Tammy – Sherry’s daughter

The family lives on –

“WE LOVE YOU MORMOR”

Yes LITTLE ones – she knows with tears of joy!

SWEDISH MORMOR MOTHER’S MOTHER Debby – GIGI – Sherry – Tammy

Papas World – Happy Birthday – Sherry!

A Certified Health Coach – A Lab Tech – Payroll – Traffic –

Logistics – Supervisor – Manager – and now a Senior Sales Crodinator

for the Juice Plus Company – HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHERRY!

The many professions she has held in all these years.

The respect of her peers – the leadership – she is the one

they all came to for advice – skill and being capable

to accomplish whatever she set out to do.

Mother – grandmother and MORMOR

Swedish for MOTHERSMOTHER!

Daughters Debby & Tammy

The grand children adore her

The daughters respect and follow her.

To these three – the youngest – it is MORMOR!

Bode – Taylor ( who I think will be taller than her) & Cassidy

Her grandmother immigrated from Sweden –

The proud heritage passed down through her mother

herself and her daughters to the grand kids.

They all seem to have inherited being tall like her

5′ 9″ to be exact.

Sarah – Debby – Sherry – Maddy & Ella

So far Ella has come the closest at 5′ 8 1/2 “

But I see Sarah and Taylor catching her and beyond.

She is my soulmate – my mentor and the reason I live today.

We have been married 38 years.

Today is her birthday –

and we have started a brand new adventure together

We have bought and sold FIVE homes together

And now we are free of ownership

Free to travel where we want

and no worries of a house – taxes or HOA!

So – today – to you my love – HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

The road awaits us – another dream begins –

and one more birthday is here

but you continue to amaze me – you are just as beautiful

as the day we were married.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHERRY!

LOVE PAPA!

Papas World – a Mothers day to remember – covid19

Sometimes – you just have to suck it up – still maintain –

And see your family!

That happened yesterday – Mother’s Day – 5-10 – 20

The year we were sheltering for COVID19 !

We decided after 58 days – and this being a special day

we would make the trip and see the families

while still social distancing.

We have not been to either set of family houses since Christmas.

We left for Florida the 28th. of January –

Came back home March 4th.

and 10 days later went into Sheltering!

The Tree little ones as I call them –

Bode – age 5 – Taylor and Cassidy – age 9.

We miss them terribly – as every day after school they would be here

until one parent picked them up –

and in the morning – Bode and his mother would be here

after she dropped the twins off at school

and wait until Bode had to be at preschool at 9 am.

Sarah – mother Debby – Sherry – Maddy and Ella

The three oldest – even though they are now older

the bond is still there

They live 1 1/2 hours away

But we always attend special events for them.

The social distancing is hard – you want to hug.

But just talking to them – well – it made this a very special day.

As we age – thoughts tend to get lost – memories fade –

but – I think this day because of the virus –

will always be remembered

and we caught it in a picture

to be talked about for years to come!

Mothers day – 2020 – MORMOR – meaning in Swedish – MOTHERSMOTHER!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papas World – In the fading light of life- writing!

I have lived my life – 70 plus years –

I guess I am allowed to make that choice above

But at my age – I choose not too!

But – in my youth – a glass of cold milk

and oreo cookies

That was so good!

I think about this often

I know that my years left are waning

So – in my mind I make my bucket lists

and I WRITE – for I want to leave a legacy of memories.

If you text me or phone me at this time of night

I will return it on my time – 5 am. !

I am not a evening person

I am a morning person

and at my age –

I am not going to change

a life time of habit.

For whatever reason – I can not spell!

I think it goes back to grade school

They changed how we were taught

from the standard sounding out words

to memory – I use both now

and I am a terrible speller!

After a couple years – they went back to sounding out words

I wonder if I am right?

If my age group is like this?

I do not think about writing –

I do it for myself!

I do it to leave my thoughts and happenings

to the generations coming

a diary of sorts with pictures

a book not published – but memories stored

Urged on by my wife to put it down

where it can be found and not lost in the Cloud!

The memories are mine -as I remember them

Today kids are on phones and Ipads

I wonder what the future holds

What inventions will come forth

This is a exciting time to be alive – to see

To live it and be a part of it!

The kids learn from the phones and Ipads

at least our grand kids do

They now are doing Minecroft

creating Worlds

And I am still trying to learn how to spell! LOL

I post every day on face book

something funny – to laugh

I post something good – to be positive

And I post a combination of the above

To make a positive feeling to start the day!

This is but who I am and why I write

I do not know most of you

my 183 followers

some of you I know

I have a little time left I think

and I plan to make the most of it

see places spend time with family

and write about it.

after all – in my family I grew up with

I am almost the last

My mother was almost 98 when she left us.

And she would often tell me

Of all the people she knew –

she was the last – no one was left

and I wondered about that

and how she felt –

I am beginning to understand her!

WELCOME TO PAPA’S WORLD

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY

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 – if you could do one thing – what would Cher do ?

GOOD MORNING

Most of you know or heard the song –

” IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME ” CHER

Well – the other day – as I was searching my phone –

I came across some pictures –

and as the saying goes –

A picture is worth a thousand words !

Cassidy and Taylor
our twin grand daughters

When their parents sold their house – and they were in between housing

They came to stay with us –

This is what they were like – five and one half years ago !

Oh – if only I could – I would return to those days !

THIS IS ME

I remember oh so well –

The downstairs bathroom door was shut –

I could hear them –

giggling –

I opened the door –

and there they were –

They had their dolls and doll clothes and were playing house.

They looked up at me and did exactyly what they are doing in this picture

” IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME ” CHER

Taylor – Sarah – Cassidy
Note the shoes on Cassidy

And then whenever the others visited –

It was always these three –

Sarah is the older cousin –

and to this day they still have this bond.

Taylor – Sarah – Cassidy

Taylor has always been the bigger of the two –

“I AM SMALLER – BUT ONE DAY I WILL GROW UP “

says Cassidy –

CASSIDY DOES

Today – Taylor rides horses – Cassidy does Gymnastics

Sarah does classical dance –

A few years ago –

All three were MERMAIDS !

“IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME ” CHER.

Today – they live only a mile away –

Such a short distance –

But time is passing –

Such a fast pace –

Taylor – she just has that all knowing look

Taylor is growing up so fast –

soon to be nine years old

who writes about horses and how to care for them

who – can saddle a horse –

clean the hoof

And ride with no hands

Cassidy – the sweet smile

Cassidy – always practicing her cartwheels –

her round offs and back stand overs

The one who can make anything

as she watches the instructions from you tube

Who always pushes –

everything to the edge.

And now there is Bode

And now in that span – there is Bode –

who looks and acts exactly like Cassidy .

He soon will be five

Trucks – bikes – lego’s

All boy

Bode – Cassidy – Taylor
Taylor – MorMor – Cassidy
Sherry is MorMor to all three

” IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME ” CHER .

Time is going on – memories are the past –

But these pictures are my gateway backwards

Bode- Cassidy – Taylor – Sarah – Ella – Maddy
Grandchildren

” IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME ” CHER.
