Papa’s World – Shopping – walking Southport, N.C.

Southport, N.C. waterfront.

This was the first time – shopping in Southport!

Our neighbors Diane and Steve walk ahead with Sherry.

We came here for the market that was in the town park.

A lot of interesting vendors and local artists.

I bought a watercolor of the Kindred Spirit mailbox on Sunset Beach-Bird Island.

What drew me to this watercolor was the beauty and detail but also it was by a local artist named

V. Ryan Lauzon – who is 94 years old and still painting!

Her daughter showed me a picture of her and she is amazing!

I found this to be interesting – vine on brick building!

Waterfront in Southport where the Cape Fear River flows into the ocean.
Diane and Sherry walking the streets to find consignment shops!
Sherry and Diane are on a corner of streets full of little shops!

I even met the man who started GOLF BALLS for WOUNDED WARRIORS – Bob Duke!

He cleans and packages thousands of donated golf balls –

displays them all over the county – and sells them for $5.00 and $10.00 a dozen –

and every penny goes to WOUNDED WARRIORS!

He has made $100,000.00 of dollars for the nationwide WOUNDED WARRIORS PROGRAM!

Papa’s World – Barefoot Landing – Crooked Hammock Brewery – Deb and girls.

We ventured out and drove to Barefoot Landing – to let Sarah shop!

That is what she wanted to do the most beside walking the beach.

Sarah – Debby – Ella discussing which shops to go to – just outside of the new Brewery – Crooked Hammock!
We had walked by here dozens of times – and were waiting for it to open up – at last – it was open!

But – we decided since it looked really busy on the inside and outside

We would pass on this trip and go to a place that was not really that busy!

So we walked around and came upon this alligator in the water – below us as we stood behind the railing.

This was my first time seeing one here.

There were signs for this and snakes –

And at first we did not think it real as it was very still until it moved!

Hoping when the little grand kids come – we can show them a “GATOR”!

Ella Debby Sarah

I actually like Barefoot Landing over Broadway on the Beach

which is in Myrtle Beach Proper.

We did do some shopping – well they did – I walked in – took a look around and went back outside to find a place to sit!

Papa – checking out the “BEER GARDEN” notice all the
GARDEN TOOLS” hanging on the wall!

Sarah loved it here – her place to be – store to store!

Papa’s World – enjoying a sunny day at Tanger outlets

A day just shopping and watching – sitting in the sun – drinking a coffee – watching people!

Being retired – when Sherry asks – “Do you want to go shopping”?

I jump up and say “WHEN & WHERE”!

I know I am going to like just waiting and watching people!

Shoes – shorts – shirt – no problems!

We drove about 20 minutes down rte. 17 – to Tanger Outlets!

Every store imaginable – my favorite shoe store – Sketchers!

And a Starbucks – for a sipping coffee!

Who would of known one year ago – I would be sitting outside

in November – sun – warmth – 75 degrees –

Palm trees and Christmas decorations!

Christmas tree decorated among the Palms!

For your information – I love warm weather

I am not a fan of ice – and snow and cold!

I gave my snow shovel away!

Red bows – garlands – lights – and Christmas songs playing – this is my type of holiday!

Someday I would like to share this with our family – holidays in the Sun!

Palm tree= warm sunshine – Christmas tree – red bows – people watching – Holidays in the South!

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

Papas World – Packing up “STUFF” – WOW!

Now that we have sold the house – we continue to clean out cupboards!

How in the world did we accumulate all the “STUFF”?

Men go shopping – straight in and back out again!

Women go shopping and “STUFF” happens!

Another morning – another cupboard – another card board box-

Never ending – it seems I fill up the garage space

then load into our Prius V – with the seats folded down.

And off to the storage unit we go with “STUFF”!

I have to admit – some of the “STUFF” is mine.

But it is “STUFF” I use! LOL

Dealing with “STUFF” is much like above picture –

It is endless!

I learned a long time ago –

“IT IS NOT FOR ME TO QUESTION WHY? BUT FOR ME TO DO OR DIE!”

“STUFF” can’t live without it!

Or so I am told!

Sherry – my wife – is the proud owner of “STUFF” –

and that is why I fell in love with her all those years ago.

“STUFF” is what marriages are made of –

Good “STUFF” – Bad “STUFF” – Together “STUFF”

“STUFF” is what makes the World go around!

No one I would rather have “STUFF” with than my wife – Sherry –

She is what “STUFF” in life for me is all about!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World –

Papas World – RESPECT – the store – your peers – family

The other day we were out on a mission

To meet a lady who had masks made in Vietnam

and were high quality.

We ordered 10 of them – at less than the going price.


And they fit much better than what we had.

But we had some time – so into Wegmans we went.

And there was not one person in that store that did not have a mask on!

There were a lot of people in there.

No one complaining – shouting – just people going about shopping!

This will rub people – it will cause some of you to be disgusted

You will say your RIGHTS are being infringed upon.

But – I will say – it comes down to RESPECT!

Wearing a mask will not keep you from getting Covid19

But if you sneeze or cough

and you do not know you are affected

It will help protect those you might have coughed or sneeze on!

So much in social media – so much hatred

RESPECT for that store

RESPECT for you peers

RESPECT for your family

The path may never be the same again

The journey will be different

But – our lives still live on

and RESPECT is much needed.

We will get better at RESPECT

or it will end up being worse than Covid19.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY!

RESPECT – the store – your peers – family.
