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!

Papa’s World – a little side trip to Tanger Outlets in Myrtle Beach – coffee and ice tea.

And that is how we live our lives – one day at a time.

We decided to just get out on a nice day and run some errands – the twins birthday is coming up –

and Cassidy and her MorMor have been in conversations every day – she ( Cassidy) calls

at least once a day and relays on Taylors thoughts! LOL

Our first stop after a half hour drive – was the Tanger Outlets – in Myrtle Beach. Where Sherry had some shopping

for birthday gifts to do for the twins. We are flying home – had vouchers we had to use – and will be kid watching

for a extra long weekend – as their parents are going to a wedding.

It also happens to be the twins birthday!

I wanted a coffee and a place to sit in the shade to people watch while Sherry went to the stores she wanted to go to.

She bought a unsweetened ice tea which I watched over for her while she shopped.

Here I am sitting outside the food court under a huge umbrella – sipping my coffee – and just enjoying

a very beautiful day with a slight breeze!

Living here affords us opportunities we did not have before – shopping – outlets – beach –

everything you can say “These people are going home from vacation – we get to stay”!

A day walking – visiting the beach – this is our WHY we came here.

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!

BOARDWALK AT THE BEACH and ON THE BEACH – Ocean Isle Beach – N.C.

PAPA’S WORLD : livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – the next day after the storm – we relaxed on the beach – sun and warm sand.

The next morning we walked the beach after the storm and then decided to go back to the condo and pack up the chairs – some drinks and food – music and relax on the beach – RETIREMENT!!!!!!
The beach was not crowded at all being early in the week.

We choose our spot and set up the chairs – took a little walk to test out the water –

But – on either side of us – people had music – loud enough that it interfered with what I had –

So – I just put mine away and listened to theirs – two different types! LOL

Watching them para-glide right off shore – four boats out there – two up by us and two farther south.

We could watch then load and unload the people – hardly stopping – and the crowd on the beach was picking up!

After a night before with thunder and lightening storms with high winds –

this day was calm – sunny – blue skies with white clouds!

Cleared my mind and was a relaxing mid afternoon!

Papa’s World – sometimes – it is relaxing after a nice day – to just sit on the beach!

After dinner – we decided to drive to the beach – get out our chairs and just take it all in for a hour!

Sherry is always drawn to the surf – walking in the water – still too cold for me! LOL

The only downside to this was the wind – it was strong – and would get into your eyes!

Hardly anyone down here even though it was the mid ’70’s out!

We only brought with us our water – and a lot of people walked past us – but only a few sitting on the sand.

The relaxing nature – the quiet – only birds – sounds of the waves.

Here you can see what the wind does when it is strong and blowing – it makes the sand look like waves – no footprints remain even though people are walking by!

It was a good hour to visit regardless of the wind!

Papa’s World – took a little walk – not our usual – but to Broadway on the Beach – then Myrtle Beach boardwalk – THREE MILES!

I said to Sherry – lets change it up a wee bit – a different walk – scenery – and revisit some places we have not been in a few months!

So – we drove South to Broadway On The Beach – have not been there in months!

One thing I did notice – Barefoot Landing seems to attract more people!

Not many people here and it is almost 11:30 am.

We were able to walk in and out of stores – no crowds – peaceful – and a bright sun shine day – warm!
I WONDER WHERE THE PEOPLE ARE? LOL
No matter – we came and did what we wanted to do – walk!

Of course I did not go in EVERY store she did! LOL

We still had a good time for over a hour – walking – looking and yes – sitting in rockers!

Papa’s World – Crooked Hammock – Greg Normans – Carolina Opry – with FRIENDS!

PAPA BUCK SHERRY CINDY outside Crooked Hammock Brewery in Barefoot landing S.C.

They stopped and picked us up – we had tickets to see Time Warp at the Carolina Opry Theater in Myrtle Beach

But first – we stopped at Barefoot Landing at the new Brewery Crooked Hammock.

Sherry had decided to make a switch to beer – as that is what we mostly drink.

She wanted to try it and just see if she would like it! ( SHE DID)!

She and Cindy ordered a flight of four different brews and tasted each one!

She found two she could drink!

Now – when together – she can drink some brews! LOL

We then walked across the street to Greg Normans – bar and eatery.

Yes – that Greg Norman – the Aussie great golfer!

It was a first for us and we had walked past it numerous times.

My lettuce wedge with salmon was excellent and they all said theirs was good as well!

AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE!!!!!!!

Will go back!

We had tickets – just a short drive down the beach in Myrtle Beach.
To see TIME WARP – music from the 60’s – 70’s and 80’s – what we grew up with!

And it was fantastic!

We knew every non stop song for over one hour – and then intermission!

And then for one hour more – non stop!

Do to the Pandemic and Social Distancing – no one sat in front – side or back of us.

It said the show was sold out but it was less than half full.

Very professional – wearing masks to our seats – and no one within I would say almost ten feet!

It felt good to once again enjoy music and just relax to a very good broad way style revue!

A cast of dozens – top performers – America’s got talent – The Voice and American Idol.

So many talented people who all can sing – dance – play instruments and perform at a high level!

Well – I had a beer – but it was a special time for special drinks!

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 – walking the beach – no buildings here – just wide endless beach – Cherry Point!

Debby Sarah Sherry Ella

We decided for their last beach walk on a cold windy day –

to take them to the far end of Cherry Grove to a place the local’s call Cherry Point!

To get to the beach – you must park along the road and then walk through this covered path!

The path to the beach is overhanging tree limbs with lots of shrubs and bushes.

Once you walk through there – you are greeted to a wide expanse of beach to the left.

The right goes back toward the houses and pier.

The view to the left and almost low tide!

It was cold and windy – and we wanted to walk way out as it seemed at low tide you might be able to walk to the other shore.

Here you can see a few brave souls – walking – and the wind was really blowing!

Ella and Sarah – laughing and trying to stay warm in the blowing wind!

We walked maybe a half mile – and decided enough – it was just too cold and so windy!

One last picture with Ella – Debby Sherry and Sarah before heading back to the car.

I told Sherry – when it gets warmer and is low tide – we must come back and just see if we can walk across the bay!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World!

Papa’s World – Lunch on the beach at Snooky’s and seeing DARTH VADER!

The view from the top deck and bar of Snooky’s on the beach – the other Snooky’s is situated on the ICW!

We decided after our attempt to walk the beach –

which was very windy and cold –

to drive back down the Ocean Blvd to Snooky’s!

Sherry and I brought Tammy and the little ones here when they visited.

Sarah and Debby at the table surrounded by heaters!

It was chilly out on the open patio.

We choose this because of the heaters and wanting to be out in the open

for social distancing.

Every other table was empty!

This was the last full day they would be here!

The four days have gone by so quickly.

We packed a lot into it – Mike is a teacher and could not come down.

Maddy is in college with her classes and in the middle of Spring Soccer.

Ella a senior in H.S. Debby – oldest daughter Sarah – youngest of the three – in 8 th. grade

We sat out there on the patio – when I heard Sherry exclaim ‘ THERE HE IS” pointing toward the beach!

She had read a article in the newspaper and seen the interview on TV.

A man who was dressing up as DARTH VADER in Myrtle Beach and walking up and down the beach

entertaining the children – with his Laser –

And he happened to be right here!

Sherry and Ella

Now Ella is a huge – huge Star Wars fan!

For her 16th. birthday as a present – we took her to Florida with us for a week.

And the highlight of that trip was her going to the STAR WARS park.

That was what she wanted to do forever!

DARTH VADER about to walk out on the beach!

So – they both got up – Sherry and Ella – and down the deck they went!

I went up on the top deck so I could get a clear picture of what was going on the beach!

Here Sherry and Ella are nearing DARTH VADER who is Laser fighting with a young boy!

She has Star Wars figurines from her youth – ever since she could walk and talk.

She has seen every movie – over and over again.

Ella and DARTH VADER!

This was one of her highlights of the entire trip to visit us at the beach!

And it was all by chance – we wanted lunch – we selected Snooky’s because it was close

And we knew they had heaters outside!

Papa’s World – Barefoot Landing – Crooked Hammock Brewery – Deb and girls.

We ventured out and drove to Barefoot Landing – to let Sarah shop!

That is what she wanted to do the most beside walking the beach.

Sarah – Debby – Ella discussing which shops to go to – just outside of the new Brewery – Crooked Hammock!
We had walked by here dozens of times – and were waiting for it to open up – at last – it was open!

But – we decided since it looked really busy on the inside and outside

We would pass on this trip and go to a place that was not really that busy!

So we walked around and came upon this alligator in the water – below us as we stood behind the railing.

This was my first time seeing one here.

There were signs for this and snakes –

And at first we did not think it real as it was very still until it moved!

Hoping when the little grand kids come – we can show them a “GATOR”!

Ella Debby Sarah

I actually like Barefoot Landing over Broadway on the Beach

which is in Myrtle Beach Proper.

We did do some shopping – well they did – I walked in – took a look around and went back outside to find a place to sit!

Papa – checking out the “BEER GARDEN” notice all the
GARDEN TOOLS” hanging on the wall!

Sarah loved it here – her place to be – store to store!

Cindy Sherry Papa Buck

It was not planned – but we had weeks and weeks of non stop rain!

So – Sherry made the call – what are you doing to our friends

who now live some 50 miles from us!

Lets get together – you come here for a over night stay –

we will walk the beach if it does not rain!

So – they did – came down and stayed overnight!

Yep – story of our lives now!

We played cards – laughed – and walked.

The rain held off and the Sun came out – but was still cold!

We made the most of it!

Papa and Buck – on the beach – girls were going to walk to Cherry Grove Pier – we would walk back to the condo – pick up the car – and go back and pick them up!

They walked the two miles up to the pier –

we walked the mile back to the condo –

The wind was blowing – but on the beach –

The ladies said the sun kept them warm.

We picked up our car and drove up to the pier –

and got out and met them just as they arrived!

The pier at Cherry Grove – there were surfers in the water!

We walked a short distance up the beach –

Before we decided to get in the car and drive around.

We showed them the canals and cottages.

Stopped at the boat landing – and then returned to the condo!

So ended another great time with friends –

No rain – walking – games and just great fun.

Papa’s World – Two new Swans – they just show up!

Taken from our Lanai – they seem to hang out now at our end of the lake!

The three Swans that were here first are gone – so we are told.

Seems the Male chased one and in doing so – at another pond –

It somehow broke it’s neck!

Then they found one that had been bitten by a snake!

The third – we just do not know and we were told this by a couple who live here!

These two were reintroduced by Wildlife management

we were also told!

The Swans come and go – but lately have been staying here.

I have watched them fly in and land –

right across the view we have on the fourth floor!

I have also watched them take off –

and fly down to the other end of the small lake.

It is a very loud noise as they beat their wings and take off!

I watch them sleep on the banks during the day in the sunshine.

And – in the moon light at night see two white shapes floating just below us!

There are other groups of water fowl

Different types of Ducks – Geese –

Birds from the Ocean a half mile away!

The view everyday from our Lanai!

But – I love the Swans the most!

Papa’s World – once again – Wicked Tuna – Myrtle Beach for a bite to eat!

Inside “WICKED TUNA” by the pier – Myrtle Beach , S.C.

We had been out shopping for furniture and were down in this area

by the Boardwalk on the Grand Strand.

We decided to stop back in –

and it was so windy and cold – we stopped our walk and went back to the car

and drove here instead of walking!

On a warmer day – some days are warm and coat less – others – you just do not want to walk!
Looking back toward the boardwalk of Myrtle Beach – note the flags – wind blowing!

We had purchased furniture and needed to plan our second stop!

We had been here before and enjoyed it!

When we went in – we were the only people there!

We had the whole place to ourselves!

The view we had from our table – the pier – deserted and no one on the beach!

Our view from the condo in Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

This past year we have also had our blessings during the Pandemic!

Yes – we sold our dream home – BUT NOW ARE BUILDING YET ANOTHER ONE!

Yes – we left our family 450 miles to the North – BUT NOW THEY WILL BE VISITING!

Yes – we packed up Sherry’s office – BUT NOW WITH PHONE & COMPUTER –

SHE WALKS THE BEACH AND CONTINUES!

You see what I mean when we have our blessings!

Sherry’s new office!

We went to the new property after coming back from NVA

leaving the snow- ice and cold behind

and saw that they had the forms in ready to pour cement!

Then we walked the beach!

Blessings are where you put down roots!

Work is where you are and where you walk!

That is owning your own network marketing business!

The wind may blow – but there are many fine days at the office!

A year in which we have a pandemic but also a year in which we have blessings!

We explore – we walk – we play golf –

we do not miss the cold – we miss the people!

Papa’s World – Lasting Friendships – year blessed – all during a pandemic.

We spend time with family and friends – here are our oldest friends.

This is a stressful time this COVID!

But – we practice social distancing and quarantine – and test!

We make plans and also are sure of the above.

2020 brings a lot of smiles also.

Buck Cindy Dottie – speak no evil – see no evil and hear no evil!

Being with friends is special – you laugh – you talk – and you share sorrows.

Family is important to us all.

You SEE on Zooms –

You TALK on phones

You HEAR on both

You connect whenever you can and try to make plans.

Sometimes – COVID interferes

But you move on – test and return.

You greet each day with renewed hope that this will pass on – only to find it won’t!
Cindy Dottie Sherry

When it does become possible – you make the most of it!

2020 still has its fun times.

2020 – well – you make the most of it when you can!

You watch a little bit of the BUFFALO BILLS!

We all are from BILLS territory

we all were there for the run of FOUR SUPER BOWLS in a row!

And now – as we all moved South –

We once again are watching them!

Keeps us in touch!
We now are playing Pickle Ball and Golf and card games!

We try to play as much golf as we can now that we are in the South!

Our friends – Buck and Cindy are 45 miles away

so we can meet up halfway and play!

We decided to take a little side trip on our way to Costco!

Since neither one of ever remembered going to the Boardwalk

on the Grand Strand of Myrtle Beach –

We thought we would take our time

and follow the beach road from North Myrtle Beach

all the way down to the Boardwalk!

It had been almost 25 years since we vacationed in North Myrtle Beach

and – we were not disappointed!

We parked half way in between the two piers.

And then we walked toward the Northern Pier!

We entered the doors and went out to the open pier

where the fishermen were and the other tourist.

We had walked by numerous shops – places to eat –

a large volleyball complex with multiple courts

and a sand volleyball game going on –

two on two!

The boardwalk continued beyond that pier

but – we decided to return from our starting point

and then walk South to the other pier

about a mile distance between the two.

The southern pier in the distance

The walk back to where we parked the car

was on the boardwalk

but it changed to a paved walk – wide – and lined on both sides

with bushes – plam trees and shade and flowers.

It was not straight but wound from side to side

with benches in the shade.

The beach of white soft sand

We decided once we got to the second pier

we would look for a place to grab a late lunch

before we continued on our way to Costco.

We found that place by the pier itself –

actually looked like it was part of the pier

called “WICKED TUNA”

where we made our way to the top and had a great view of the pier

and the beach in both directions!

We had a great lunch sharing some appetizers.

We continued onto Costco – and vowed that when we have to make that trip again – we would include the Boardwalk and this place to sit and have lunch!

Papa’s World – Living a dream – Ocean Keyes – South Carolina!

The back ocean side entrance to Ocean Keyes!

It was by accident that I found this place while searching for a place to live after selling our house!

I came across a picture of the view from the Lanai and we fell in love with it!

This is situated in North Myrtle Beach and we had no thought of coming here!

The plan was to find a home to buy or a lease –

planning on only being here for five months!

But – after searching and searching and visiting numerous homes – condo’s

And the housing market going up every day- it became apparent to us –

that maybe the best way was to find a model and build it our way!

Where we are staying is the building at the very beginning of the small lake – top floor – four stories -middle!

We found that we could build for almost the same price that we would buy –

and not have to do any renovations!

So – we extended our stay here until the end of June!

And hope that our build out of four to six months

would allow us time to enjoy what we have here!

From our condo – is 6/10 of a mile and we are standing on the beach!
There are six pools here – a tennis – pickle ball court – a work out gym and a community center!

We walk the road every day past the pool straight to the beach entrance.

Cross two roads and are in the parking lot of Avenue six beach entrance!

Papa’s World – a visit on our way – Myrtle Beach Proper!

We decided to drive the beach road from North Myrtle Beach

all the way down to the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk!

We stopped – got out of the car – walked to the beach entrance!

All the way down – we passed house after house

residential living – vacation homes – second homes

beautiful beach front homes!

They look as if they have been here a long time.

I was told that because of the shape of the coast

a long half moon stretching from below Myrtle Beach

all the way North to Wilmington N.C.

Very few storms hit this part of the coast

instead are directed toward Wilmington!

It was a Sunday drive after church virtual service.

A quiet ride with no traffic and heading for Costco!

But – we had never seen the Boardwalk!

We decided to just take our time – explore a little

before going to the store.

Maybe have a light lunch

see the storied Myrtle Beach!

The residential before the boardwalk

I am glad we did this as it gave us a chance to see how people lived.

We have decided that in our future trips to Costco

we would always make this a part of the ritual

driving first to the boardwalk

walk the distance between the two piers

have lunch and enjoy without haste!

Papa’s World – Storms – causing the ever changing beach!

Good morning – before we walk the beach!

We have not had a really bad storm since we have been here!

It has rained hard once – the wind was somewhat strong once!

But – there have been storms way out on the Atlantic Ocean –

that have had a impact on the beaches!

You can see the effect of a storm out to Sea!

I have noticed the erosion of the beach –

the gentle slope is now much less

and it seems that the flat part of the beach

now extends further out!

Just the other side of this dune is almost gone – another big storm will most likely wash this away!
This pier looks new but is missing a section at the far end. I do not know when this happened.
Looking back toward the shoreline
Looking out toward the ocean
And along the side toward the missing section

The beach has changed since we first walked on it!

There are large tidal pools now when the tide goes out

that were not there before!

Maybe when we first walked – that was not the normal?

Where did this come from?
Walking the flat beach now – more flat than before!

Storms out to sea – sending the huge waves pounding the shore!

At night and in the predawn

we can hear the surf –

One of the many storm drains from main street – we have seen them dig out with a back hole!
Tidal pools now where before there were none!
Sherry walking the tidal pools.

Papa’s World – when you get excited – see some Jimmy Buffet – relax – it will be OK!

We had been touring – listening to advice from friends

strangers – and our landlord!

We were visiting different housing neighborhoods

and came across one that we THOUGHT would be IT!

So much so that we actually had the salesman contact his manager.

Could we purchase the lot next to the model

which currently was a parking lot for the model

and place the exact home on that lot

facing the big water view pond

for the exact price of the model?

Well – we left with a package and a wait for a answer.

We were six miles from Broadway on the beach

which meant 7 miles and 15 minutes to the Ocean and beach.

Exactly what we were looking for!

And it would be a brand new home – not to big –

but – as we drove away – it was five miles to a store for food!

A perfect storm so to speak – but a little far to go and buy bread with traffic.

However – it was enticing and more so when we got the email.

“YES” was the answer and they discounted that lot by $5000.00!

Then – we heard JIMMY sing – about the HURRICANE

and this HURRICANE started to rain

into that MARGARITA GLASS

and the whole place sang along!

But the rest of the email read-

“CLOSING WOULD BE JUNE OR JULY”!

8 or 9 months away!

We listened to the song and reflected on our choice

it was there but a little out of reach.

We decided there listening to Jimmy Buffet

calm down – enjoy the journey

for we have only just begun.
