Papa’s World – Swans – they come and go – and bring joy and smiles for us!

We never know when the Swans will show up – first there were three – now there are two – you look outside and there they are.

I have seen them fly in one time – I have seen them take off and fly to the other end.

But I have never seen them fly off and leave!

But – when they are here – I find myself often glancing out of the lanai

searching for them cruising around –

or up on the bank – at the foot of the next condo!

I wonder to myself – what happened to the third one?

When they first appeared – there were three – and the big one would lead the other two around.

Then one day two disappeared and the one would just sort of hang out by itself

in the area all three would be.

After a week – I watched as the two flew in –

right outside the lanai – so close I felt like I could touch them.

And they landed just short of the fountain you see here.

The third hurried over to them!

Here they are right below the lanai

The last several times – they all left and only two have returned.

I believe they are a pair – the third – I do not know – but it was as if –

it was always leading and protecting them.

Back when all three were here – the one to the left would chase the geese away!

Now – we only ever see the two!

But – we enjoy them all the same!

Papa’s World – Lasting Friendships – year blessed – all during a pandemic.

We spend time with family and friends – here are our oldest friends.

This is a stressful time this COVID!

But – we practice social distancing and quarantine – and test!

We make plans and also are sure of the above.

2020 brings a lot of smiles also.

Buck Cindy Dottie – speak no evil – see no evil and hear no evil!

Being with friends is special – you laugh – you talk – and you share sorrows.

Family is important to us all.

You SEE on Zooms –

You TALK on phones

You HEAR on both

You connect whenever you can and try to make plans.

Sometimes – COVID interferes

But you move on – test and return.

You greet each day with renewed hope that this will pass on – only to find it won’t!
Cindy Dottie Sherry

When it does become possible – you make the most of it!

2020 still has its fun times.

2020 – well – you make the most of it when you can!

You watch a little bit of the BUFFALO BILLS!

We all are from BILLS territory

we all were there for the run of FOUR SUPER BOWLS in a row!

And now – as we all moved South –

We once again are watching them!

Keeps us in touch!
We now are playing Pickle Ball and Golf and card games!

We try to play as much golf as we can now that we are in the South!

Our friends – Buck and Cindy are 45 miles away

so we can meet up halfway and play!

Cindy Papa Sherry Buck

Once a week since we have moved down here.

There are over 100 courses to select from!

Sherry and Cindy!

Imagine – meeting old friends – memories – laughter and good times! review blessings

There are times in you r life this happens – but there are times in your life that this is a cherished memory!

We are blessed – we have a lot of friends – some older than the others –

And when you managed to meet up –

That makes a memory that you look back on and smile!

PAPA & SHERRY

During our trip to Florida last Feb. we made a date to meet up with a couple of the oldest friends I have.

Freddie and Lynda and I go back to the ’70’s –

Fred and I graduated together so I guess that puts us back to the ’60’s!

Freddie Sherry Lynda

When I introduced Sherry to them – they hit it off and you can tell

they still do!

Fred was one of my three best friends in H.S.

CAN YOU IMAGINE – all these years and still laughing

even if years go by and not seeing each other!

Music is top of the list with these friends – singing – tipping a few drinks – and shots! LOL

We have a core group of friends – those that we try to get together with several times a year.

We all lived near each other before we all moved South.

Except Mike and Carol who still live in the old hood!

Cindy – Buck – Dottie – Mike – Sherry – Carol – Jim

Mike and Carol bought a house on the lake Chatauqua in Western New York

and invited us all for a long weekend.

They have extended the invitation once again for next Summer!

Boating – boating and more boating in their beautiful new boat

that fits all of us plus room to spare!

Cindy PAPA Sherry

Old friends – new memories – fun – laugh – CAN YOU IMAGINE!

Sherry PAPA Pam ( PJ) Bob

Bob is one of my three best friends from H.S. – he stayed at my house and me at his.

He ate dinner with us and I ate dinner with him.

We played sports together – and then – lost contact as he moved to N.H.

Later in life he remarried and we connected once more.

Now Sherry and Pam talk on the phone and we make plans of meeting up!

Which before we came South- we met up in Berkley Springs.

Pam had a misstep and injured her achilles

causing her to have surgery

So as right now – we do not know when we shall once again see them.

But friendships exist through time and miles – memories created –

CAN YOU IMAGINE!

Papa Sherry Elaine Steve

We played volleyball in a league with them during the mid ’80’s!

We golfed with them all the time!

We watched their children grow up and they ours!

We went on vacations to North Myrtle Beach together!

And they are alwys in our minds – planning to get together.

They were the first to come to D.C. to explore!

CAN YOU IMAGINE!

These are our oldest friends – we have made new friends – life is memories made and memories to be made!
CAN YOU IMAGINE!

Papa’s World – Smile a little- Happy July 4 th.

Every once in a while – you just have to sit back and see the funny side!

GOOD THURSDAY MORNING

As we prepare to celebrate our NATIONS BIRTH – have a cup of brew –

Take a sip and relax – read the paper or better yet – some funny stuff !

In the eye of the STORM !

Political ” STUFF ” is just that –

sometimes go to the back page and smile

At all the advertisements –

Release your inner self – look at the funnies !

Be creative

See what is in front of you and be creative –

Smile for it could make your day !

Guess he got fooled

Sometimes – you just have to know – you are smarter than them !

Look in the mirror – you own it – make the best of it – and make the change.

One of my hero’s

Don’t fool yourself – it is a waste of time –

Be proud of who you are –

There is only one of you !

No matter what – either one works !

It all comes down to the ” SPACE” between your ears !

You be the judge – you determine –

after all – it’s your mind – it’s owned by you

Your dreams are your escape – your memories are yours –

Think back to your childhood – the good moments –

They belong to only you !

Look at the bright side – at least you have one –

You decide –

But feel good – look positive – emotions play a big part of this !

Surround yourself with TRUE FRIENDS and FAMILY –

They believe in you !

At the end of the Holiday

Take this day and recharge yourself – family – friends –

But always remember – there is a funny side out there –

You just have to look for it !

You just can’t make up this reality into fiction !

Sherry and Tom

I hope this brings a smile to you –

A good vibe –

A HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY !

From us to you

HAVE A GOOD FUN DAY !
