Papa’s World – crafting with MORMOR!

MORMOR – Swedish for MOTHERS-MOTHER – that has become her name for the three little ones!

Sherry has introduced crafts to all the grand kids –

and to this day – the three older ones still do crafts!

Taylor Bode Cassidy 10 6 10 years old.

All you have to do is say craft and the go right to the table – no fuss!

Busy once again – crafting – she teaches them and now Cassidy helps the other two. She is the one who texts – calls or zooms her MORMOR every day!
Cassidy – who can do any craft by herself – and often sets by herself with her IPAD – listening to instructions and creates pictures and drawings that are much larger than what she sees on the IPAD – drawing freestyle!

The older ones have that same talent – Ella has won awards for her creations.

Taylor – whom loves her alone time – building farms – houses – horses out of LEGO’S!
Bode -the one who is hard to slow down – always on the move – loves his craft time with MORMOR!

She teaches them – one at a time – not only crafts – but life itself!

Here they are after creating their make a shell wish – and MorMor helping to hang those wishes!

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 – The final walk and then goodbye – Jo & Paul

Jo and Paul

It was both a happy and sad day – our final walk together –

and – this walk was on their bucket list –

for I had posted many times the pictures of Sherry and I walking this path.

They found it beautiful as we do

and requested that we walk along the creek !

Where we live
Brambleton Va.

It was a quiet morning –

a little cool – around 56 degrees –

but with lots of sunshine

and soon the jackets came off !

Jo Paul Sherry
at the top of the trail

During the visit – Paul and I had discussions

the politics of the day

the discord and unending drama that happens each and every day.

The stress is not worth it.

I described to him my three critiques for every day –

One – post a smile

Two – post a good thought –

three No Politics !

Sherry Tom Jo

And those are my rules I follow –

I also write about my life – family and friends –

and I try to do that daily –

Jo and Sherry

I do this to capture my thoughts –

through pictures and words –

So after I am gone –

a record remains where friends and family can read –

where those memories are preserved –

My thought on life
Sherry and Jo

We discussed stress – we discussed life –

Paul Jo Sherry

We discussed life in general and living

We discussed how no matter what we post –

the only difference it makes is to our selves !

Jo and Sherry
Sherry and Jo
heading back home

Change has to come from with in –

And no matter how we feel

we can not change someone else.

Today – we make a change by voting

and then vote again when it is time

Papa’s World – Good thoughts and smiles!

Today – I share smiles – good thoughts and positive feelings!

We are following our new dream after 14 years.

Learning and using people’s names!

That is a tough one for me even though I have a good memory.

Sherry will introduce me and I just seem not to retain it!

But – I am going to try harder!

Today I carry this in my pocket –

and the darn thing has a mind of its own.

All f a sudden I will faintly here a voice and I look around.

Sherry just laughs – my smile for the day – it is YOU!

Lo and behodl – I pull my SMART PHONE OUT –

and someone is talking – could be a video – or someone I do not know.

Anyway – it provided a smile and laugh at my expense! LOL

Willie Nelson – part of the famous country singers –

who called themselves “THE OUTLAWS” –

says it simple and true –

Which brings a smile to my face

and good thoughts in my heart!

YEAH – on my bucket list of UFO’S – Loch Ness

and BIG FOOT!

Now – another blog sometime – or did I already write one?

I did see a cluster of UFO’S and have no idea what they were.

But – I would love to see a BIGFOOT – not up close –

but to verify in my own mine they are real!

And YES – after my sighting of lights- I BELIEVE _

As MUELLER would say –

“The truth is out there”!

You know – there is truth in this – enough said –

SMILE – YOU’RE ON FACE BOOK!

Been together 39 1/2 years –

Married 38 plus years

and now – we are on our next adventure

Time to buy the CRAYON’S! LOL

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – Things in my life – memories

I wonder where these people think they are right!

There are so many inconsiderate people out there driving.

They pass you on the right in turn lanes –

They pass you on the left and then cut in front of you

to take the exit!

They tail gate – they constantly blow their horns at other people

This scares you if you do not know what is going on!

Just a pet peeve with me!

Let food be your medicine – let medicine be your food!

Finally – after almost 40 years –

I started eating healthy!

My wife – Sherry – started me on the road to health.

She and I had gone to NBC for your health –

at the Washington DC convention center.

There she found what was to become our staple

Juice Plus – over 30 fruits – vegetables and berries JUICED!

All the nutrients after drying in a patented formula

put into capsules or gummy’s.

The next best thing to real food

and you take them every day!

Being nice – being friendly – being polite – being helpful!

I post every day on social media and I write a blog everyday.

Three things I post everyday.

Good thoughts – smiles and laughter – positive thoughts!

I try to not post political – really hard not too!

My thought on that is my VOTE!

Making changes that way and peaceful protest –

writing letters and postcards.

But – my motto so to speak is above –

IT’S IMPORTANT TO BE NICE!

I LOVE MY WIFE – ALL THE DIFFERENT PERSONALITY’S!

At the falls!

Just a few of the things in my life – memories!

Papa’s World – LOOK ‘EM IN THE EYE !

When we are out walking – we meet lots of people –

on the trails – roads and sidewalks.

I always make eye contact – or try to.

A lot of people will just look down or off to the side –

That is until I am the first to greet them !

GOOD MORNING !!!!

I will say GOOD MORNING

as we almost always walk then-

90 % will then look at you and reply – smile –

as if they were just waiting for you to greet them – almost shy !

My daughter in law Trisha
and my youngest son Shawn
A SMILE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS !

It is almost like they do not know how to greet you !

And if you wait – they just walk on by !

That is why I decided to always be the first !

It is then that some people will not respond –

and I wonder what kind of person that is –

or what kind of life they lead –

I hope that they remember my smile and greeting –

hoping that just maybe it made their day

a little more enjoyable !

SMILE – think good thoughts

I think taking that extra step brings a happy thought to myself.
