Papa’s World – find a shell – tie a cord through it – DEB and GIRLS make a WISH – hang in tree!

There is a place near the ICW – where there are hundreds of shells hanging from trees – each one is someones WISH!

We brought them – Debby – Sarah and Ella to Vareen’s Memorial Garden

Just as we did with their cousins – and here is a special place

to not wish upon a star – but a SEASHELL and the hang it form one of the Cypress Trees!

Sarah Sherry Ella Debby at the make a wish site.
Sarah’s hanging wishes for all her school friends!
The first make a wish tree – now there are many more!

Many people pass through here each day –

I watched two older women stop and do the same thing –

find a shell – write on it and then hang it from a tree!

Busy writing their names and making their wishes!
Debby’s shell – no matter how old you are – make a wish to come true!
Taylor’s shell in front of Ella’s shell – cousins!

It was a warm day – low tide so lots of shells to look at!

Sarah going to the ICW to look for shells.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Cassidy -cousin and grand daughter – make a wish on a seashell and hang from the WISHING TREE!

Papa’s World – in North Myrtle Beach a celebration with the GREEN – St. PATS

The IRISH came out in droves to celebrate and this bar was command central in the organizing of the festivities!

For the last four weeks – there was a on going struggle between the owners of the business’s

and the city council and the mayor of North Myrtle Beach!

A year ago the Covid 19 hit and everything went into lock down

The annual parade was canceled and places were deserted.

Many did not survive 12 months later!

A lot of store fronts are vacant!

The back and forth has been in the papers and on the local news!

The business were told they would be fined if they proceeded –

I do not know the inside story only what I read .

The parade was canceled even though hundreds of people showed up

with no masks and no social distancing.

Instead there would be a steady stream of golf carts

all decked out – business with bars – blocked off with yellow tape and orange cones.

The celebration would go on after one year!

Discounts and sales were everywhere – the merchants have been in a struggle for 12 long months!

We went to main street with our masks and stayed away – 6 feet from people.

Sometimes that was impossible.

Most of the bars are on one side of the main street!

We watched and took it all in – it was a happy feeling – even though we were aware of our surroundings.

It still was sad to see almost no one here even though the celebration was going on!

This main intersection would normally be crowded –

I really do not know just how they are staying in business!

Maybe – with Spring Break coming up – they will have customers.

A lot of people are condemning the celebration – but I do not!

We choose to walk over and see what was happening – maintaining a safe distance from people which was not hard to do.

We stayed away from the bars where most people were –

we found a place to sit and observe.

I hope that this was all worth it!

As we walked – we watched from afar across the street – the golf carts -the music and people spending money.
Across the street from where we walked.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

The IRISH came out – business once again on Main Street North Myrtle Beach!

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH – A CELEBRATION WITH THE GREEN!

Papa’s World – watching a house being moved from the beachfront!

A few blocks North of this beach entrance – a beachfront home was moved a block from the beach!

We had watch them jacking the house up on steel I beams –

cribbing and disconnecting all the electric and plumbing!

A second floor deck had been disconnected and a pool – in ground left there with a cement patio!

A long walkway to the beach with a sitting area at the end.

Two flags on a flag pole still waved in the breeze.

We wondered where it would go and how much this would cost?

The – a block away – lot was cleared – leveled and electric pole put in.

That was when we thought – is it possible it was being moved here?

And then one day last week – the electric went out and back on shortly after –

They – the movers had begun the move at 9:04 AM.

Traffic was blocked off – a lot of police cars and county officials and the moving company

and all of its equipment.

The electric had gone off and back on for them to disconnect the power lines and splice in once again.

The two story house was on the move!

Already crossed over four lanes of Ocean Blvd. moving slowly up the street to make the right hand turn onto Hillside drive.
Almost to the corner of Hillside drive.

A lot of people watching – HOW ARE THEY GOING TO MAKE THE TURN?

Almost there!
About to make the turn!
The turn is made – they would lay down huge wooden pallets for the wheels under the house to travel on the one side of the roadway grass!
From the rear – going down Hillside drive to the cleared lot! You can see the tracks in the road of the swing to make the turn.
Almost there after hours of slowly moving and repositioning the wooden pallets.
Finally in place after almost a full day – well into the afternoon!
Once a beachfront house – now a block away on a side street – the journey to this lot completed.

The house was moved – still left on the huge trailers with wheels.

I am thinking they will start soon to put a foundation under it!

I have no idea how much this cost – but the beachfront lot is worth a million or more.

Sherry Sarah Ella Debby – house and outhouse!

A house at the end of the rainbow! LOL!

Papa’s World – Cousin Douglas comes to visit – Swede’s talk!

The view from our condo – never gets old.

Douglas will stop overnight – on his journey back North from Florida.

Doug is first cousin to Sherry – both his grandmother and Sherry’s grandmother were sisters

and both from Sweden first generation.

Douglas and Sherry in our condo.

Doug is two years older and can speak fluent in Swedish.

He was a educator all his life – Principal – Superintendent and author.

With over 7000 followers on his twitter blog site.

This is the first time in I believe four years since we last saw him.

And – have invited him to stop in on his next journey through the area.

A lot of family history from both of them was discussed.

I love history – and family history is my observations I like to listen to.

I would sit for hours and talk to her mother about her and her family and childhood.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – another page in our book of life.

I write for those who live and for those who come in the future.

A journal of family – friends and times with pictures.

I have always regretted that I have no history of my own family

other than what I remember and everyone who could tell me is gone.

HEALTH and NUTRITION AGING HEALTHY ONE DAY AT A TIME!

Papa’s World – Where did the time go? New build – garage and entry.

Our new home being built in Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach – Brunswick County – N.C.

As you can see – the garage has a entrance directly into the hallway and laundry room!

Our life has evolved – from NVA to S.C. and eventually N.C.

All in the span of some nine months!

Where has the time gone – and when did those 40 years fly by?

We started dating in early 1981 – married in June of 1982 –

and today – building a house!

The garage with Sherry looking into the laundry room and the kitchen straight down the hall.

The garage has a overhead storage area with pull down steps.

The three entrance doors are leaning against the walls.

There is a pipe coming up out of the cement floor that I have no idea what it is for!

We are hoping to be in by early June!

We have a storage unit nearby and have our belongings in there.

The beginnings of the kitchen – island and the breakfast nook – bump out window and beyond the covered over windows – the screened in covered lanai!

The walls have been coated on the bottom with a termite barrier!

The floor plates are bolted down into the cement

and metal corner braces to code for hurricanes installed!

Solid construction to N.C. building codes.

The vaulted living room and the extended sun room and to the right – the master bedroom and bath and closet.
Sherry inspecting our office – where we will do our home based internet business – http://www.sf.juiceplus.com – which will have french doors – and beyond her is the hall and laundry room and to the right the kitchen.

It was exciting to tour on a Sunday with no one around!

The spare bath – just across the hallway of the office and to the left and right will be two bedrooms.

This is the third house that we have had built – most likely our last – both of us will be 72 !

If you wish to see more of the build – visit my previous blog

Where did the time go?

It has the pictures of the rest of the house!

The living room – sun room – breakfast nook – kitchen and beyond the patio and screened in covered lanai!

TOGETHER WE SHALL BUILD AND THE FAMILY WILL COME!
WELCOME FAMILY AND FRIENDS TO OUR HOME!

Papa’s World – Where did the time go?

Our new home we are building in Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach – N.C.

We are building a new home – and where did the past almost 40 years go?

In fact – it seems like only yesterday – 1999 – we transferred to NVA from WNY!

Today – we are on another chapter of our life together.

And in a few months time – our house will be done and we will move in!

The back of the house – patio – and bump out window of the master bedroom – and behind sherry – will be all windows of the sun room.

This will be our third house we have built together.

Time has a way of just moving ahead and so fast!

The front porch and entrance to the front door.

We decided to build here – instead of buying – mainly because

We will have everything we want – for basically the same price!

The front door looking into the main hall way.

Everything in our price range we looked at – had to have updates –

or did not have a garage, or too small.

After coming in the front door – office to the left – bedroom to the right – and living room and sun room straight ahead.

NEXT BLOG : WHERE DID TIME GO- PART TWO!

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 – show a little LOVE!

We went to Lynchburg Va. to watch our grand daughter play soccer.

Our oldest daughter – her husband and the three grand daughters

all were there – the next day we went for a walk along the river.

Mike Sarah ( youngest) Maddy ( oldest – college soccer) Ella ( senior – college soccer in the Fall)

We watched the game Friday night in the rain – Maddy scored a goal

And the next day – after her practice – went for a walk along the river.

Sarah ( 5’7″) Ella ( 5′ 8 1/2″) Maddy ( 5′ 6″) Sherry ( 5′ 9″)

The girls are tall – Sarah seems like she will be the tallest as she is only 14.

But – when we were home at our other daughters house-

Taylor who is only ten years old – is already 5′ 1/2″ tall!

I think she will be the tallest along with Bode.

Our walk lasted a couple hours

as we were going for a late lunch and a early dinner

Debby ( Mom) already shorter than her daughters.

We walked – a fun walk – a lot of laughter!

Maddy Sarah Ella

It was a fun afternoon – a break from the rain – warm enough when walking

to enjoy the time together.

LOVE!

Debby Mike Papa Sherry Sarah Maddy Ella

Papa’s World 0 Sunrise before we left to go back to NVA!

The morning sunrise!

The day we left to venture back to Northern Virginia –

I glanced out the sliding glass doors and this is what I saw!

The swans cruising around the bend.

I also looked for the swans – we have three of them now –

and here they came – gliding past the other community pool –

These two hand out around our end –

While the lone swan hangs down on the other end.

These two are mates and will not let the lone swan near them.

I have seen what I think to be the male of the two –

Make a beeline toward the lone swan –

enough so that the lone swan takes off flying over the lake and lands at the far end!

In a few days we will head back down to S.C. once again to “HOME”!

Funny how that has worked out – we are very comfortable with the area now!

And – as much as we love our family time and visiting –

Home is where our hearts are now – the new build and the excitement

of the family visiting us!

I always remember our past – all the places we called home!

Our current view that I will miss!
