Papa’s World – Of course – we played pickle ball!

Cindy Jim Dottie Papa

Cindy said “OKAY – WE ARE GOING TO WALMART”!

Okay – what for?

“WE HAVE OUR PICKLE BALL RACQUET’S AND EVERYONE NEEDS ONE!”

So – there you have it – we played Pickle Ball

on the tennis courts which also had

Pickle ball courts in our gated community!

Buck Jim Papa Sherry

When Sherry and I were spending the Winter months

with my brother in the Villages

we played some Pickle ball down there.

So – we had a idea how to play

Keeping score and shouting it out

when you served – well – sometimes that is a challenge

as you move around back and forth

and each side has a number!

It can be a little bit funny seeing seniors yelling out numbers!

And – Cindy had started taking lessons!

But – after some discussing the rules

we started to play – and it became a contest!

This time we split up and no longer guys vs the gals!

Jim Cindy Papa Dottie

We were there for over a hour

in the sun and shade

and it was a fun time!

Now – we were not as nimble as we once were

but we were nimble once as we were once upon a time!

Cindy Jim Buck Dottie Sherry Papa

I guess this may be part of our get together from now on.

Papa & Sherry we won our set vs Jim and Cindy

It was a friendly competition!

A lot of laughs and joking around!

Sherry and I won one set and lost another.

Jim & Buck before Buck took a tumble at which time we called it a day!

It was fun – and we played after our walk on the beach

and before we left for our final golf match

Gals vs. Guys!

Papa and Dottie Pickle ball Champs for seniors!
At least for this senior! LOL

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – Saint Bonaventure Golf Course.

Saint Bonaventure University Western New York outside of Olean N.Y.

We lived in this area most of our lives together

The hills – rolling meadows

the lush greenery and yes snow.

But we also belonged to the Bona’s Golf Course!

Situated right next to the very large cemetery

and right across the highway from the University –

sits a nine hole course where we attempted to play golf

sometimes twice a week!

There are special holes here I remember

one is at the tee box of number FIVE

where you are up on a knoll

looking down but out across the trees to the campus

and the hills in many colors of the fall.

Just a beautiful peaceful view.

And then number SIX

where I recorded my only HOLE IN ONE!

Looking across number TWO fairway to number THREE!

The beauty of the course in all seasons

well – in my thought – not SNOW! LOL

But people cross country ski here in the winter.

And now – a brand new clubhouse built overlooking the course

in the exact same place as the old one

which I all the time hit!

The new clubhouse at Saint Bonaventure University

The old club house held many memories

of dinners – events and celebrations for us to remember.

But now – it is brand new

offering a view of numbers one – two and three.

And in the splendor of the fall foliage

The last time we were there

the course was in excellent shape

and I still see the views in my mind.

The course can be challenging

and sort of lulls you to wonderment of the views.

Number SEVEN – very hard to hold the green

if you are short it will roll 75 yards back down the slope

too far and you are in a steep back with 12 in rough!

In its splendor – lush green – views for miles.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

If you are ever in Western New York –

about 65 miles South of Buffalo and you play golf

Just across the road from Saint Bonaventure University

sits a nine hole course we learned to play together

Take the time to take it all in and play nine!
