Papas World – praying for peace –

Praying for peace –

hoping War does not come

As I write this – a attack on our Military base in Iraq.

I do not know how this will turn out –

But we are dangerously close.

Perhaps – just maybe – it is time to really TALK!

Save face – promote healing – sit down – TALK!

As it stands right now –

TIT for TAT – now TALK!

Writing this now on the morning after the strike.

Praying it ends –

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papas World – Social Media

I have some criteria that I follow when posting on Facebook.

We are constantly bombarded by WHAT IS WRONG on the media today.

Negative vibes – where are the good things to be written about?

Taylor Bode Cassidy
school canceled
a day with the grand kids

So – I decided a long time ago – I would share smiles –

Good thoughts – Family – Friends and day to day happenings.

Also a way to document my life –

To put it all down in journal type writings.

I try to stay away from politics – as I have friends from all sides.

Sometimes that is very hard to accomplish

But – I try –

You see – my life is in the later stages

I want the kids to read this after I am gone

I want them to know who I am

what I did and how I feel.

I hope I conveyed these thoughts through my blogs

I am happy with my life

And today I hope I brought us a little bit closer

SMILE – LAUGH – GOOD THOUGHTS –

You are only here a short time in the scope of all things.

Thank you for reading Papas World

Have a blessed New Year

Tom and Sherry

Wishing you a Happy New Year

Papa’s World – Good Morning and have a great day !

Each day – I try to be positive

My blogs each day are for the most part a POSITIVE in a very Negative news day !

My criteria – follows three rules of thought for me.

One – share a smile ! Two – share a good feeling ! Three – be POSITIVE !

NORMAL ?

I could be a bit normal – but – I guess I am not – however – I see normal !

I see stories – I ask questions – I write them down – I memorize them.

My MOTTO

I live each day as it will be my last –

I plan ahead – I organize – I DREAM !

I call it ” LIVING LIFE TO THE PLUS ” one day at a time !

One of my favorites

George Carlin –

one of my favorites – always thought provoking –

He told a lot of truth – and made me think !

I think this fits today’s World

I could write on POLITICS each and every day –

endless – but I choose not to.

Instead – I look for gratitude –

I see rights and wrongs

I yearn for peace

And I look upward for guidance

I hope this explains my reasons for blogging –

my innermost thoughts.

Blogging is a way of reaching out –

extending thoughts and pleasant ideas.

To make a difference for one day in your life –

to be happy .

Sit back – grab a drink –

mine is coffee –

and just enjoy a moment to feel good before your day starts.

Then at the end of the day –

be reminded –

that in this blog – there is peace.

My three rules –

why I write each day !

Thank you and go in peace.

Papas World – As the World turns – so do I!

As we get older – we seem to become more set in our ways!

However – I am from perhaps the most vivid generation to ever exist!

THE 60’s – growing up in both turmoil and a revolution of –

PEACE – LOVE and COLORS!

Of all human life!

We had new music – and new Icons – JFK – MLK – and not so liked –

RMN – on the political horizon.

This was the era of PEACE- LOVE and HOPE –

But also of Guns – Protests – Marches and death.

And – the outcome – my generation won against the above.

War came to a end – the peace sign prevailed –

All colors were accepted by majority –

And RMN who was on the horizon –

was sent packing in disgrace in the 70’s.

The Hippies eventually for the most part – became mainstream

And today – they still flash those Peace signs –

They are older now – walking slowly –

They have experience and growth

They are still teaching generations to Love –

And once again – are standing – standing for democracy.

Now known as also Baby Boomers – casting a eye at the Capital.

Putting back on those tie dyed shirts in their minds.

We had become somewhat “Silent”

But – “WE” are moving once again –

As it was in the 60’s – turmoil has once again raised it’s ugly head.

A generation that lead the nation with protest out of a war

no one wanted –

A generation that evolved with human kind in mind

A generation that promotes Peace – Love & kindness

Yes – we are old – we are set in our ways

We are not entitled – we are not elite –

WE ARE WE – a product of the ’60’s –

As it was said by a Nation at war in the 40’s

You have awoken a sleeping giant –

A giant that walked the streets in the 60’s

One who promotes Love – Peace –

And in my case – God – Family and Church.

Sherry and Tom
a product of the ’60’s

We stand together – as one –

We work behind the scenes to promote humankind

And justice for all is prevailing

You see – all those years ago

We helped usher in a new dawn

And we still to this day

Believe in Peace – Hope – Love

and in our case

Family- Church- Country and that peace sign.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Working toward next year

Cleaning the TOILET!

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY

Papa’s World – I do not like shopping – I go in and get what I want – & and get out!

GOOD MORNING

I associate shopping at COSTCO as if you are driving

the Beltway around D.C. ! LOL

I mean you have to watch out – you have the slow ones-

who walk very slowly but in the middle of the aisle.

You look for a opening to get around them

And just as you see it –

from behind you comes some crazy cart pusher

and almost takes your elbow off as they speed by !

When I go in there –
I NEED COFFEE
to relax me
or more alert
which ever comes first

Then you come to intersections of aisles –

one to the right does not apply here –

first to push through

No SORRY’S

Not even a glance

Rudeness is a way of life in the aisles.

Then there are the ones who camp out at the FREE FOOD !

You know – those places where they give away free tastings!

You have the GUY who stands there eating

blocking everyone else

eating one at a time

until all is gone and HE moves on.

Doesn’t care and is immune to stares!

Not all is lost though

You do sometimes run into people

Like I was standing in line to check out

And this man and women walked up to the line

just to the right of me

I have this problem of not recognizing people

out of the environment I know them in

That is just crazy – because I know them.

He was dressed way different – no white shirt – tie

no white smock – dress pants – no black shiny shoes

But a Sweat shirt – baggy sweat pants not matching –

sandals – no socks !

Other words my HEART DOCTOR who I have seen

a dozen times or more these past six years!

He has worked with me – talked to me

he is my connection for life

Yet it was him who extended his hand and ask me

” How are you doing”?

It was him who saw me and spoke first.

I am so bad at that.

Then there are the old couples – shopping who do smile

who stop and wait

who are courteous

the ones you talk to

and they smile and talk back

And then I realize – COSTCO is a microcosm of that same Beltway drive

As the same diverse area we live

as the same state we live in

and the same country of the U.S.A.

There are some good – some bad – some in between

Life as we live it here

Life as we have it here

Not as bad as I thought

Pretty good

America – is and always has been great

Wouldn’t live anywhere else

Thank God my ancestors immigrated here

It takes all kinds
A child knows no boundary
and no limits
except that which
WE TEACH THEM

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Costco not so bad after all

Papa’s World – The BIG BUS on and off – San Francisco

GOOD MORNING

We decided to tour San Francisco from the top deck of a BIG BUS !

So – we walked across the street from Pier 39 and that is where we boarded

after purchasing our tickets on Pier 39 !

Cindy and Buck

We choose the top even though it was a wee bit cool

and still a little foggy – esp.the Bridge !

Tom and Sherry
staying warm.

The BIG BUS was a on and off stop bus –

if you wanted too !

I think there were 15 or 16 stops !

But – we decided to just sit back and enjoy the whole city tour

and we even were going to ride across

THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE in the open air !!!!!!

Our tour guide

We had a excellent tour guide who was born and raised –

IN SCOTLAND !!!! How about that !

And he new everything about San Francisco

even one time singing the Tony Bennet classic

” I LEFT MY HEART IN SAN FRANCISCO “

and he was rather good – in fact great !

At the top of the street
the zig – zag street

It was hard to remember everything

or everyone he told us about

or that building or this building

Haight – Ashbury

Where it all started – The Peace and Love –

of the HIPPIE GENERATION

of which I am proud to say

I was part of even though

my long hair was curly

LIKE CARROT TOP !!!! LOL

So many memories of that generation

PEACE BROTHERS AND SISTERS ! And ” LOVE ” !!!

The courthouse
Tile mosaic
We both worked in the tile field
for a combined almost 80 years !
COOL SCOOTERS
