Papa’s World – Family Krohn – two seasons – cold and warm – I LIKE WARM!

My season is WARM and WARMER!

Ever since I had my Heart attack some 7 1/2 years ago –

I get chilled very easy – even before I did not like the snow – ice and cold!

But – the families seem to like it – skiing – snowboarding and playing in the snow!

When we were back home for the Holidays – believe it or not – we went to a winery!

Where we had wine – snacks and a fire in a fire pit.

The pit was free and offered by the winery!

I bundled up and made it through -but by the end I was cold!

Here we are – outside – about 7 PM. – Marcus – Papa – Bode – Sherry – Taylor – Tammy – Cassidy!

I have to admit – it was unique – but I very seldom drink wine –

I just can not get into the dry wines!

Now – a sweeter wine I can sip on!

Sherry Cassidy Taylor – Tammy & Bode

What a difference 3 weeks make!

From snow and cold to sand and somewhat warm!

Even though it was not as warm as we would of liked – for Jan. it was okay!

I am not shoveling snow – I can layer up and walk the beach!

School break – and a quick trip down – Marcus could not get away.

The first thing they wanted to see – THE BEACH!

The little ones love the beach – sand and water.

And then we took them for a walk along the ICW at Barefoot Landing!

Watching the boats traveling up and down –

and seeing the boats in the marina – where a lot of people are living on the boats there!

WHERE WE ARE UNTIL END OF JUNE!

Papa’s World – once again – Wicked Tuna – Myrtle Beach for a bite to eat!

Inside “WICKED TUNA” by the pier – Myrtle Beach , S.C.

We had been out shopping for furniture and were down in this area

by the Boardwalk on the Grand Strand.

We decided to stop back in –

and it was so windy and cold – we stopped our walk and went back to the car

and drove here instead of walking!

On a warmer day – some days are warm and coat less – others – you just do not want to walk!
Looking back toward the boardwalk of Myrtle Beach – note the flags – wind blowing!

We had purchased furniture and needed to plan our second stop!

We had been here before and enjoyed it!

When we went in – we were the only people there!

We had the whole place to ourselves!

The view we had from our table – the pier – deserted and no one on the beach!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World and our stop for a bite to eat

at the WICKED TUNA in Myrtle Beach – S.C.

Papa’s World – when grand kids come to visit – love them all!

Tammy Bode MorMor Cassidy Taylor

The first thing they wanted to do was walk the beach!

Now – wouldn’t you know it that it got cold and windy the day they arrived!

It was so warm the day before people were sitting on the beach and wading in the water!

So we pressed on and walked down and onto the beach.

The wind was the culprit – making it very cold.

Even Bode has enough even though he had no shoes on!

Cassidy Taylor Bode after he put his shoes back on!

We walked to the next beach entrance and exited!

MorMor Bode Cassidy Taylor Tammy

It was a very short walk – but they got to see just how close we are!

Tammy said the kids were great – she had told them she would not stop and she didn’t making the seven hour drive in a little over six hours and they never complained!

And that night after the kids went to bed – we relaxed and watched a playoff game

We are all from Western New York

and were huge fans when Buffalo Bills made their four straight Super Bowls!

One of my favorite beers from back in Western New York!

Papa’s World – deserted beach – and then a helicopter overhead – two men in the open back hatch!

It was cold – a little wind – and no one on the beach!

But we braved the cold and started to walk –

at least the wind was not blowing –

But – there was no one!

In both directions it was like this!

As we walked in the solitude –

we both could hear what we thought was a plane!

As it got closer – we could see it was a huge helicopter!

If you look close you can see two men sitting in the back

with their legs hanging over the edge!

No way for me as heights and me do not mix!

One time I went to the top of the Empire State building

One step outside to the deck and I froze!

I had to go back inside and down as fast as I could.

No big cities for me as I fell like everything is closing in on me!

It was a memory I shall have for the rest of my life –

and this one was another one!

It was not going fast so we had time to take it all in

on a deserted beach on a cold day!

Papa’s World – Ever changing life – Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach – friendships

Papa – walking from the beach to main street of North Myrtle Beach!

Along the way – we have friends – who after social distancing – come to visit!

And – we walk the gated community – through he gate –

and onto the beach!

The gentle surf of the beach – water and sand!

Our friendships go back years and years.

We all lived by one another – then we all moved away

but that friendship has endured time and distance.

Always from afar – but close when we make plans to get together.

Cindy – Sherry and Dottie
Jim and Buck – Jim and I played softball together in the mid to late ’70’s Buck and Cindy were our neighbors and they also knew Jim and Dottie!

We plan golf – card games and word games!

We drink a little beer – sing a few songs – do a shot – and laugh!

We would set up a get together every 4 to 6 months –

We lived near DC – Jim and Dottie Va. Beach and Cindy and Buck – Wilmington N.C.

Now we have moved further South

about 50 miles from Buck and Cindy.

It is easy for us to get together and golf every weekend.

Jim and Dottie are now the Northerners!

We all have taken up a new game – Pickle Ball!

This last time – we got together at our condo – played two days of golf –

and Pickleball has now become another game we shall play!

We all practice good health – Sherry – who is a certified Health Coach – leads the way!

She has her own website and for 15 years has been the one who encourages all of us!

http://www.sf.juiceplus.com HEALTH AND NUTRITION AT IT’S BEST!

We all come from WNY and SWPA area and are big Buffalo Bills fans!

Distance may separate us – but friendship is but a zoom call away.

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 – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – One of the many days in our life – living one day at a time!

A dose of this – a spoon of that – a sip of this – GRATITUDE!

In our life together – for going on almost 40 years –

we do everything together – we are best friends –

if no one is around – we still go on adventures together!

On our daily walk – we sometimes see the three swans!

Our days are almost never planned – unless there are errands to run –

friends to meet to golf –

but other than that – we explore!

We are taking in everything we can until our new house is built!

We also are exploring the area where we will live –

And it is nothing to drive a hour or so to see something we have never seen!

The beach at North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

We walk almost three miles a day –

we did back in NVA until it got cold!

But – here – the sun warms you up even though it is in the high 40’s!

Walking the beach is part of that three mile walk every day!

6/10 th of a mile and we are standing looking at the above!

A day in our life – we live each day as it comes!

Always active – even making a garbage trip to the dumpster a walk!

We also can walk the half mile to Walmart if we choose.

Living life to the plus one day at a time.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

ONE OF THE MANY DAYS IN OUR LIFE – LIVING LIFE ONE DAY AT A TIME!

MY SITE: livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – Living life to the plus – one day at a time – blessed that I can!

Another in the series of my year in review blogs – 2020.

Well – where do I start – I have lived another year – in most cases – I wouldn’t be here!

2020 has been a very strange year – but – here I am – living through it!

For those that do not know – seven years ago I had a heart attack!

Not your normal one if there is such a thing –

but they called it a “WIDOW MAKERS” one.

I ended up with FOUR BY PASSES!

and walked out of the hospital 52 hours after surgery!

We have grand children – and I am blessed to see a picture such as this!

So – a year in review of 2020 – it is scary – frustrating – wonderful – satisfying –

nerve wracking – joyful – nail biting – and any other adjective you can throw in there!

But – here we are on another adventure – after selling our house during a pandemic – living our lives one day at a time!

You never know as I can attest – just what the day before you can bring!

Now – we are building a new home near Ocean Isles Beach – N.C.

And being careful – wearing our masks when we are close to people and inside!

I see no sane reason to refuse to do that because it infringes on your liberties!

Come on you folks – who protest this – it is a common being nice sort of thing!

We old folks – well we have been around and wish to continue to be around –

so just wear them – it will not hurt you – and it may save me from covid19!

There – that is my take on the pandemic!

It is indeed a strange year – one of challenges but joy when you see your family!

ZOOM is now a big part of that – staying in touch with virtual meetings –

church and religion – shopping and home delivery!

And the times you spend with friends after quarantine!

We stay safe so we can enjoy friends – getting tested – being careful –

2020 has brought many strange things into our lives –

Who could imagine every day walking the sands and surf of the beach!

2020 – with all its quirks – and I am living to see it!

So – you see – I count my days as blessings – no matter what comes before me.

Yep – happens to me – but who cares!

In this past year – we have become more and more dependent on each other.

We have become closer to family if that is at all possible.

2020 has taught me things –

2020 has in a way – been a comfort for me in that we are once again

on a adventure – every day – planning – looking – exploring!

The sun rises with the one you love!

Papa’s World – a cool early morning walk on the beach!

There are times that we walk early – before 7 AM.

It is a quiet time to walk –

a time to just take it take in!

Life comes at you and never stops!

You and me are just along for the ride.

We can make the most of it

and when we get off

our legacy can continue to the next generations

hoping we made a lasting impression

in that all to be short ride!

How many have stood here before you?

How many have viewed the view?

Walking – thinking – talking together!

Early morning to clear out the mind –

A time to reflect – to plan.

A time to see what lies ahead

knowing that this will be here tomorrow

and the day after that many – many times!

Yes – walking early – hearing the sound of the surf –

the warm feeling of the Sun on your back or face.

A walk on the beach – a walk through time – a time to reflect

Walking – listening – solitude – but being together – sharing moments and thoughts -for it is here that ideas are formed – problems solved.

AN EARLY MORNING WALK ON THE BEACH!

Papa’s World – late afternoon walk on the beach – daily routine!

The sunrise gives out the desire to begin walking outside – however – a cold snap – so walking the beach in the afternoon!

The warm rays from the sun – sand beneath my feet – casting a shadow – living our dreams!

Sherry walking – we have come to always head to the beach –

and as Sherry says ” SEE OUR OCEAN”!

But – as soon as we start the one half mile walk

we can actually hear the surf.

When there is a storm somewhere OUT THERE –

the waves get large as well as the sound.

Listening – as we walk closer –

and then – breaking the plain of the dunes

we see the waters – cresting – wave after wave

Warn sunshine – large waves –

making the music we love

OUR OCEAN – so we have come to call it!

Footprints in the sand – a hazy sky – luring us on – walking – walking!

Much too soon – it is back to the parking lot and straight up the street

to our gate back onto the gated community!

Where in the late afternoon sun – the ducks and geese – come together – to rest for the night!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World
