Papa’s World – Us Old Guys – The older I get – The better I was !

Tom

Ever want to go back and play that softball game again ?

Or – just one more Volleyball match

without the worry of crashing to the ground ?

How about racing down the court and laying the ball into the basket?

Instead you sit back – think and then take a warm sip of your coffee or tea-

And think of where you were – what you did – and know that-

Those were the good OLD DAYS !

Me today

Now it is make sure you brush your teeth – comb your hair –

Put your socks and sneakers on –

Look at your fit bit –

Check the time –

Glance over your shoulder –

And say to your other –

” WHICH PATH ARE WE WALKING TODAY ” ?

WHY I WALK

Walking – not running anymore – too many sore parts

But you can dream – you can think back – and you can know –

” I USE TO DO ALL THAT ”

Today – I WALK !

Walking

At our age – walking has become a habit –

A habit that has become a challenge –

one that is which path to take !

As I age – I think –

I remember –

dream of what was –

It seems that it was not all that long ago !

A PARTNER

I may be older – and I might of done things better years ago –

But the older I get –

I like to think –

Not only was I good at one time –

BUT AS I AGE – I GET BETTER – BETTER AT LOVING WHO WE ARE !

You become wiser –

you become more of a person –

YOU BECOME YOU –

Sherry & Tom 1982

Forever young –

memories are for the living –

And LIVING IS OUR LIFE –

Being older with the one you love –

THE OLDER WE GET – THE BETTER WE ARE !

Makes up for all those past ages –

WELCOME TO PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – just another day – be happy !

A GOOD DAY TO YOU ALL

Retirement can cause this –

“IT’S JUST ANOTHER DAY “

COFFEE

BUT – mine ALWAYS starts this way ” COFFEE ” !

Yes – that is me !

First thing I do is make that cup –

Usually with a flavored taste to it !

I AM FREE

My phone for the most part – stays in my pants pocket !

I mostly only use it for two things !

First one – ” TO ANSWER IT “

And that comes in a form of a text from my wife !

Second one – ” TO TAKE A PICTURE “

You see I really do not like my phone –

When it rings –

There is this happy – cheery voice –

THAT IS RECORDED !

Yes – you can !

And then that voice continues on with some nonsense –

I have learned to hit the turn off button rather quickly !

Last day of the week

To be honest though –

They all run together –

It use to be – “HURRY UP WEEKEND ” !

Now – it is “MAKE SURE I DO NOT FALL “

When trying to do this ! LOL

YEAH YOU KNOW

And as these days seem to all run together –

So does bed time –

The yawning starts around 8:00 PM.

Be honest now –

Then you start thinking –

What can I dream about to make me fall asleep ! LOL

Turn the AC a little bit colder

Warm blanket –

YEP – 9:00 PM. is the new MIDNIGHT !

Then you realize the weekend is gone –

Monday is here –

Unless you did SOMETHING over the weekend-

It all seems the same !

And even in retirement –

The most important thing you can remember –

“ONE DAY WE WILL DIE SNOOPY “

” YES – BUT EVERY OTHER DAY WE WILL LIVE “

THE AUTUMN OF OUR LIVES

Today is just another day –

Today – as in retirement –

Is a day in my life –

My hope is that each and every day –

I share a little part of it –

Welcome to PAPA’S WORLD –

thanks for reading

Papa’s World – Lake Tahoe adventure continues

Cindy and Sherry

Mt. Rose ski slopes – 8250 feet – a little chilly but refreshing.

Cindy – me – Buck

As our adventure starts – we decided that we would completely

drive the whole way around Lake Tahoe

we ended up driving 180 miles that day !

Mt. Rose – 8250 feet high
Our first sight of Lake Tahoe

pointing at the lake
although it looks like trees they are holding up !
Lake Tahoe
Clear waters
Swimmers
Swimmers snorkeling

We would pull off road and take pictures – it was so beautiful

The water is so clear you have 100 feet visibility !

However – the average temperature of the water is

42 degrees low and 64 high – too cold for me !

However – we read where it never freezes over

The warm water at the bottom always rises to the top

preventing it freezing !

Cindy and Buck

I hope you enjoyed this part of our adventure –

Oh – just another little tidbit

The average SNOW FALL at the Lake Tahoe area

420 inches !

Way too much for me

and the last of the snow melted in JULY !

Cindy and Sherry

Papa’s World – living healthy through my grand kids !

A few days ago –

I saw a post that stated ” GRAND PARENTS REMAIN YOUNG ” while watching their grand kids ! Boy – that was right on !

As most of you know – Sherry and I – pick up the twins from school -bring them home until their father picks up the youngest ( only boy grandchild) and then stops to pick up the twins !

Tammy opened her store almost one year ago – Kids consignment store – which is open every day except Monday 10 am. – 5 pm.

So – they needed help and we stepped in along with Marcus’s parents Jennie and Gehard. Since Bode’s preschool is close to them – they pick him up at 1:00 pm. and then Marcus goes after work to pick him up.

Now I must say – I really enjoy my little trip to the school – a little over one mile away. “PAPA – BE FIRST IN LINE ” is what they tell me. Well – even though I am in line one hour before they get out – most times I am second !!! That person must get there after breakfast !But – I use that time to listen and read !

Listening to my favorite radio station – not classic rock or country or rap or whatever else is out there – but ” SPORTS RADIO” 106.7 The Fan! I enjoy kicking back – using a couple wadded up blankets – for a pillow – and just spacing out listening to the talk show. This relaxes me and yes sometime I catch a quick 10 minute power nap ! When I was working – I used my lunch – one hour – every day to do the same thing ! Habits are hard to break !

But – I also listen to these two little girls – talking – conversing and sometimes a argument breaks out ! Now at that time I either look back and tell them to stop or I turn up the radio so loud – that they become silent ! LOL But I find they actually talk so much like adults – on their own daily lives.

Being with them makes me feel young at heart – relating to them – and oh my goodness – the questions are endless – and” WHY” is always asked.

But – then it gets adult like with the answer ” OF COURSE ” or ” ACTUALLY ” or “PAPA” ! I love that – and it makes you think when you answer the “WHY” !

” WHY ARE YOU NUMBER TWO AND NOT NUMBER ONE ” ? I get that one almost every week ! But – how can you argue the fact that life is about staying young even though it might only be a frame of mind !

Turn back time – can’t – capture thoughts words and deeds in pictures – you can – but staying young is a art that we all try to master.

Mine is a matter of mind over physical – thinking – acting and doing! I may not be number one in line but I think I try harder at being number two – after all – “PAPA – WHY AREN’T YOU NUMBER ONE ” keeps me on my toes each week to give a answer and that my friends keeps me young !

Papa’ s World – Healthy living – one day at a time

How many ways do you say ” I LOVE YOU ELLA ” !

The twins gravitate toward their cousin Sarah – Bode – his idol is Ella.

It has been this way ever since he could walk and talk. ” Is Ella going to be there ” ? he will ask. Ella is our second oldest grand daughter – who will turn 16 this July. Bode is our youngest gran child

and the only boy out of SIX ! He turns FIVE in November . As you can see here – he absolutely adores her. ” Ella – you want to play “? he asks.

Both have been brought up eating Healthy – as have all the grand kids. That is priority number one for their parents – even though they both are cousins – it runs in the family.

This was taken before Ella’s soccer game and during her older sister’s game. Both play – Maddy is the starter on Midfield – varsity and Ella starts as midfielder on the J.V. team.

The varsity is 8 wins 2 loses & 1 tie.

The J.V. are 7 wins 1 loss & 3 ties.

Very proud of these two and Maddy signed a Letter Of Intent to play soccer at The University of Lynchburg in Va. We will make trips to watch her play.

Bode loves his cousin and she in turn choose to sit with him prior to her game – she has the biggest heart and to see them was priceless.

We all practice living to the plus – being together – and supporting one another. This is but one more day in PAPA’S WORLD .

And Bode supports his Ella !

Papa’s World – How old are you ?

GOOD MORNING

Is it HOW OLD YOU ARE or HOW OLD DO YOU FEEL ?

This would be me

All my life – I have been early to bed and early to rise !

I just can not help it –

I try to stay up –

and I try to stay in bed –

BUT – I start to fall asleep –

and then – I get my second wind –

And – that is when I can not go to sleep –

but I still wake up early !

And then – being 70 –

feeling 50 and knowing all of the above –

Puts you in the right frame of mind –

GO TO BED WHEN YOU ARE TIRED –

GET UP WHEN YOU WAKE UP –

and make the most of your day !

Works for me !

We try every day –

do not eat this –

Lets walk – get in our steps –

MOVE & MOVE

But – you age –

For most people this is natural –

But to age and feel younger –

This is how I think each day

It is so much easier to just order in –

But you know something –

I LIKE ASPARAGUS !

I enjoy cooking –

( cleaning up – not so much )

But we try every day to eat GREEN –

We try to eat healthy –

White with peanut butter frosting

And then there are the sweets –

seems the older I get –

the more I want my cake and eat it too !

I am not much of a gummy or hard candy person –

But – put a milk chocolate covered peanut out –

beware !

Sherry – Maddy – Tom

What does keep us young in mind and body –

Is the interaction with our grand kids .

Watching them grow up –

Seeing them excel –

Being a part of it !

Make a smile – a good thought

So – is the 70 now the new 50 ?

I guess it is what ever you think it to be –

In our lives –

the answer is yes –

We try to maintain

Doing that requires good eating –

exercise – ( walking)

And finding a way to get as much whole food into our bodies that we can.

We know quite well what is on that list of older than dirt –

But then again –

We also know what is on our list to age and maintain.

It is all for us

the matter of the mind –

And doing what we think is right for us –

I hope you like reading Papa’s World
