Papa’s World – when we were young – co-ed volleyball!

Sherry and I were married 6-25-82 –

both 33 years old – second marriage for both of us.

I had two sons and she had two daughters.

By that time – I had played basketball for a radio station

and was currently playing softball on two teams.

We decided – I would end the softball

and we would do something together.

There was a volleyball league in our community

It had SIXTEEN TEAMS!

And it was COED!

Now – this was suppose to be REC volleyball

but it wasn’t !

It was highly competitive

and if you were not on your guard

you could end up with a broken nose from a spiked ball.

There was a opening for a team

and we were put into contact with

Steve and Elaine – and the start of decades old friendship began.

They had been regular players in several leagues

and agreed to join us and Steve and Chris.

Teachers at the H.S.

Then we were contacted by Deb and Tim –

Husband and wife

who also wanted to play – and their old team disbanded.

Along came Mike – who also was looking for a team.

And that is how “THE BEACH CLUB” co-ed volleyball team formed!

Everyone but us were former players for years

and we fit right in.

Tom Sherry Steve S. Elaine S. Deb M. Steve H. Chris H. Mike C. missing Tim M.

We played as a team for several years – and were competitive from the start.

The league had ex college players –

and players who traveled on weekends to tournaments all over Pa. & NYS.

It was a very good league – and if you did not pay attention

you could end up getting hurt.

We finished 3rd. in the upper bracket a couple times

Out of 16 teams.

and won the lower bracket!

Not bad for 40 year old players!

When we were young – we palyed volleyball

and today – time hop brings up our team picture

I wish I had more pictures to share from that time

somewhere there are pictures of Sherry & I

playing volleyball for the American Olean Tile Co.

in the Corporate cup.

But that is another story for a different time.

Now – we golf –

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – retired – being healthy – a day in my life

What I do in a day of my life

I worked 47 1/2 years for the same company – prior to that – I started working when I was going into my Junior year of H.S.

I decided when I retired – almost 50 years of working – was enough !

Me – Sherry – Steve- Elaine – Cindy & Buck

It was important to maintain our friendships – stay in touch – here are four of our closest friends.

Buck and I – NWPA – golfing vacation

It was important for me to stay active and play golf.

Our six grand children – 5 grand daughters and then Bode .

Family is very important to me , when we moved to NVA – Sherry’s daughters followed us there . My two sons stayed in NWPA – we see them when we visit. In the 20 years – the Va.family has grown – and being there – we see them often if not daily. My family I grew up with is almost gone – I have a niece – great niece’s – brother’s daughter – great – great niece and 2 great – great nephews – everyone else including uncles -aunts are gone.

We have a little side business – actually it provides the income to stay where we are.

We live in a very expensive part of the country – in fact – this county has the highest income per household in the country. We moved here 20 years ago for work and then Sherry retired almost 7 years ago – and went full time into that business of health and nutrition. I followed one year later – and – it has been the income that has provided us the time to stay where we are.

North Shore – Oahu

We travel – we play golf – we see the country – but we also maintain a healthy lifestyle – eating right – and continue to inspire people to do the same – all the while being paid to do it !

You have to remember – retirement means Social Security – if you have a pension plan – 401 K – and whatever else you have saved. PLAN ” B ” – if you want to maintain – you have to have a plan. Ours – we planned 13 years ago and have stayed the course.

The three amigo’s for over 38 years.

Family life – friends – and maintaining health are important for us. All three – with church and God – are our mainstays of life. Giving – helping – praying and attending church – go hand in hand with our life. But – having fun – seeing friends – and watching the family grow – is to me what retirement is all about.

Cindy and Sherry

My wife is extraordinary – a natural born leader – a certified health coach – along as being a true friend to many. She is my crutch – the one I follow on health and nutrition and the reason I am still alive today.

A typical dinner meal for me

Eating healthy – sticking to the plan – and taking my nutrition supplement – and following what she says and does are my secrets to life.

The TOWER GARDEN – we grow inside and outside – year round.

We grow our own produce – April through October outside with two Tower Gardens – anything that does not grow on a tree! And then as you see above – we grow inside our garage November through March. Always fresh and no pesticides – we know what we are eating and growing.

Team Generations

Our team has grown over the years – conference time is twice a year – all over the Country – as is the team – simply sharing by word of mouth. Families – children – helping each other – maintain that healthy life style.

Sherry -Debby ( QMND – soon to be NMD )

In October we will travel to Austin Texas – where we are planning to watch our daughter Debby be promoted to National Marketing Director for the Juice Plus Company – when she will make a full time income she could not of made in the Corporate World ! With extremely generous benefits – and help for college tuition for all three of her children.

Our goal of maintaining our lifestyle in retirement with a PLAN ” B” has been met and continues – growing year by year.

We would love to share it with you – it is not easy – life isn’t easy either – but you make it what you want it to be.

It is up to you – we supply the help – the guidance – we are there.

http://www.sf.juiceplus.com is where you contact Sherry – and look at all the different video’s – both on the health and business.

I am writing this blog today – my only regret is that SOMEONE out there did not share it with us 25 years ago – I wish they had – but we found it 13 years ago and our own PLAN” B” has worked.

Thank you for reading – and remember #livinglifetotheplus is real –

Papa’s World – retirement – loving life to the plus doing it my way.

Papa’s World – when I write – I express my thoughts!

My thoughts and words – relate to my own life

and that of the people who are dear to me!

Marcus Tammy Debby Mike Sherry

My family – whom we are close to –

They were all there for me when I had my heart attack

almost seven years ago – A WIDOW MAKER –

I was told by the staff!

You should not be here they said!

BUT – you are the most healthy heart attack victim

we have ever had in here – they also said!

YEAH – I WAS –

but I had done all the damage for 40 years

until I switched lifestyles

and started my journey to health

and was guided by my wife – SHERRY –

who became a Certified Health Coach

through courses by Doctor William Sears

and the teachings of Doctor Pam Popper

and a few doctors from the Cleveland Clinic.

Ella Bode Cassidy Taylor Sarah – my WHY!

Now – today – we practice healthy eating

and have passed it onto our children and grand children

Everyone in these pictures – follow our example.

We are partners in The Juice Plus Company –

have been for 15 years!

And so have these kids – as long as they have been alive.

Growing – listening – following – example –

all part of our life together

Living by example

Tammy and Debby

These two believed in us from the start

and you can see in them the healthy way of life.

This day we went hiking on part of the Appalachian Trail

only a few miles from THE DIRT FARM BREWERY!

Yes – we do relax – a three mile hike up and down the trail.

Then here to sit outside in Social distance

and allow ourselves to have a drink as a treat.

I sometimes go weeks and months

without a beer – I really do not like wine

or the hard stuff- only light beer.

This day we had all the grand kids except the oldest who

is in college at The University of Lynchburg playing soccer.

Bode is the only boy and he adores Ella

Yes – when I write I express my thoughts

in both words and pictures

putting them down – and saving them for the people

you see in this blog for generations to come.

GENERATIONS

For – you see – Sherry’s team – countrywide –

is called TEAM GENERATIONS –

for the very reason you see in this picture

passing on health to all the GENERATIONS to come.

Our legacy – which started 15 years ago and now is passed onto

the third generation –

lives through us –

TEAM GENERATIONS

Started by a MOTHER & TWO DAUGHTERS

Now extended across the country

one day at a time!
