Papa’s World – our ever changing life at Ocean Keyes -North Myrtle Beach, S.C.

Our dining room – living room – double entrance to the Lanai – and the water beyond!

We first rented this for three months – not knowing where we would be.

Then in November – after six weeks of house hunting –

We decided it was just as cost effective to build!

You see – in our price range – we found a lot of houses – condo’s

But each one we liked – there had to be things done!

When you are like me – this can happen! LOL

We could do these things – but it would take time and money.

Plus – another cost was to furnish it!

We sold almost all our furniture – and you can not just hire someone

Most will put you on a list!

Playing a game while eating dinner on the Lanai!

So – we extended our time here – and found a building development

one half hour away into N.C. – close to two beaches for our walks and company

And made our selections – everything we wanted and still in our price range.

What we will be doing off and on until our house is built! Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

We will be here until the end of June!

Our house is suppose to be finished by the end of May!

That will give us time to get our stored stuff moved down here

and Sherry does what she loves to do – SHOP!

Papa’s World – I suggest when you rent a beach house you must have a pool!

When the beach is so hot – and the waves huge –

And tons of jelly fish – then retreat to the pool!

We had little ones with us and they could not cope with the waves.

So a lot of time was spent right here poolside!

Of course when it is NAP TIME –

the adults come out to play!

And SHADE – you must have chairs and SHADE

and a little TIKI HUT with fridge!

Of course a game of MASH rigged up to float

at the far end of the pool

kept everyone occupied and cooled off!

And bring your grand children to the beach

to create the memories of their childhood.

And of course your favorite brew of choice!

Sherry

Make sure you have comfortable seats

to rest your kindle on!

And a big pool for everyone to enjoy!

Papa

Yes – when you book a beach house

make sure it has a pool

you most likely will spend more time there

as Sharks start feeding in the twilight

and the pool always has entertainment

Be music from a speaker – shade from the sun –

drinks from the fridge

or just good people to hang out with!

And of course in the rarly mornings –

you must also have a deck

to see the sunrise from

and a cup of coffee to enjoy those first rays of light!

Papas World – looking around – almost done!

I am looking around the house – we have the car loaded up for one more run

to the storage unit and then to our daughters house.

We stopped at Home Depot and bought two more small boxes –

A medium size one another wardrobe one.

This chair will stay here – it matches the bedroom set

which they purchased.

My clothes are in a suitcase –

A carry bag and some piled on the floor.

The utilities have been called – shut off date – the paper will be canceled.

As I look around – almost all that is still here will remain.

The final finish line is in sight – all the keys collected –

put into plastic bags and marked.

I am writing down things I think they should know.

We will be staying with our daughters until we decide when to leave

for the winter.

We will visit friends and family as we have been invited.

I look around – it has been a good run – our home – our base – our dream.

We are in this together – and we shall go on – new adventures await.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY!

Papas World – we have discussed this for 6 years!

Two months ago – we called a friend –

She sells houses – and we wanted to hear what she had to say!

First – how is the market – ” STRONG SHE SAID”!

Only 8 homes listed in your price range

and 28 people looking!

Then – she looked around – at all the upgrades!

And gave us a quote – estimate –

So – we decided to start cleaning out – “STUFF”!

Even if we were to stay – we had to get rid of “STUFF”!

Three weeks ago – we decided now or never!

WE LOVE OUR HOUSE – OUR LOCATION!

Her parents had said the same thing all those years ago.

But – then it was too late – her father passed in 2001

and their dream never became real.

We called the lady – we will be ready in three weeks.

How is the market?

Still strong and the estimate went up!

We notified our friends and they were happy.

Come – live by us!

I called my sons and told them.

Sherry told the girls and grand kids!

We set the wheels in motion.

Trip after trip – Salvation army – Project Hope

Secure a storage locker

Start selling items on THE BRAMBLETON MARKET PLACE!

Pictures of the outside already taken

Now tonight – at 6PM.

They come to take pictures of the inside

The sign has been ordered

We told a few neighbors

everything is downsized as far as we can go now.

We want to sell as much as we can

And then – stay with the kids

until we find a furnished place to rent

We will not buy right away

We plan the Winter to be somewhere in Florida

But – we have options

We are going to take our time

WE WILL MISS OUR HOME OF ALMOST 14 YEARS!

IT IS TIME

I WANNA GET LOST IN YOUR ROCK AND ROLL

AND DRIFT AWAY

Papa’s World – MERMAID CLUB – DO NOT ENTER

You see – they have this club – the little ones that is –

called “THE MERMAIDS” – you must believe in order to enter !

The CLUB rules

It’s a rare club – only those ( the girls ) are allowed in – but little Bode – is a guest – but not a Mermaid !

Bode – a guest – just how can you keep him out !!!

The club was formed a few years ago – there was a planning session – at a Soccer game ( Maddy’s) and they convened – making it hush – hush !

Looking up club rules for the MERMAID CLUB

RULE # ONE – you must believe – you must recite the chant – and like water!

Maddy and Ella

Even though you like water – you can not belong if you do not believe – just ask Maddy and Ella – who were left out !

THE CLUB

The club ‘ s picture was drawn just before we checked out on the turn around – declaring the member’s.

The main three

As the years go by – and they continue to grow up –

“THE MERMAID CLUB ” will always be a part of it –

imagination – the remembering their youth – innocence –

three little girls and one boy.

ON THE BEACH – ALL SIX GRAND KIDS

My memory shall be not only the MERMAID CLUB –

but sharing a week – smiling – watching – seeing them come together –

and one little boy in awe of his sisters and cousins – looking at them !

Tom & Sherry – PAPA & MORMOR

This blog is about family memories –

a time that I have put down in writing – and photo’s –

to share but foremost –

a place to look back on and reflect on just another day in my life.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I do –

memories are a test of time

Having a place to read and see them is priceless !

Thank you !
