Papa’s World – riding the waves – first time – cross off the bucket list – Tube Riding!

Cindy and I riding the wake on the tube!

Once – in my teens – I waterskied – I managed to get up and if I stayed behind the boat – I was okay!

Well – that ended as the person pulling me decided to throw me out wide – and it was all over!

This was our second tube ride – the first was quiet and slow – so we decided to step it up a little!

The first ride was before the rain storm – and we talked it over and decided we could go a little faster –

We had gotten up to 10 MPH and while it was okay – it was just being pulled behind a boat ride!

We are about to go outside the wake – and ended up going 20 MPH! That was fast!

At one point we went wide left and were even alongside the boat!

I have now achieved my goal of tubing and can cross it off my bucketlist.

I have water skied – cross country skied and now tubed – no down hill sking for me.

There are several videos – one where we flew out to the left and were racing side by side with the boat.

But – I do not know how to get them on here so can not show them!

I decided after

that I did it

and now I was done.

Papa’s World – in the boat – on the lake – taking shelter during a quick rainstorm.

We had just made our first slow loop around the cove on the tube – Cindy and I.

The sky turned gray – and we could see the rain coming – so we got back on the boat – pulled the tube up on the rear walkway – and headed into the covered dock area.

I had tried tubing – even if it were a slow trip around – and I was ready to go back out again and speed things up!

It was a quick rain shower and we drove onto the boat lift which is covered.
There was no lightening – just a steady rain.

We talked and decided to once again go tubing – this time a little bit faster – as the first time was sort of boring!

The rain continued for about a half hour – and we could watch it from under the canopy. We had some munchies and drinks – and were dry – the boat has a really good radio so we listened to music and talked.
Cindy and I – life jackets on – the rain almost stopped – for the time being – we were dry!

Papa’s World – at the lake house on Lake Chautauqua – W.N.Y.

Our neighbors from 30 plus years ago in Pleasant Acres Drive.

The Johns now have a lake house on Lake Chautauqua in W.N.Y. A large natural lake some 30 miles long.

For the second year in a row – we have gathered there at the invitation of Carol and Mike –

for a long weekend of telling stories – catching up and boating!

Early morning view from the enclosed porch overlooking the deck – dock and lake with the sunrise.
Buck – Mike – Carol sitting and just relaxing on the porch.
They have accomplished this in this home away from home.
They are here most weekends.

We boated for hours and went tubing twice ( yes I did) and loved it!

Papa’s World – what happened 50 years ago- well if we can remember – we talk about it !

Childhood friends – grade school – sleep overs –

getting to know their parents – the trouble we did not get into

the trouble we did get into –

When friends stop by –

You try to remember all the above –

and then – you get tired and say goodnight –

Those fifty some years went by way too fast !

Pam Bob Sherry

We grew up together in a small town in NWPA –

Six miles from the NYS border –

Where the drinking age was 18

where we lived it was 21 !

But that was later –

first we had to ride our bikes –

go to the park – hang out –

We had to be kids !

Bob Tom

Today – like two old men – we hang out on the corner and talk.

My -how those years have changed us !

But some things never change – friendship – trust

and old stories refreshed –

four friends from the past

riding through a path with pine trees

in a odd car called the NSU PRINCE !

You would of had to be there –

It was a funny moment for us.

The RV and car

Today they are retired just as we are

starting out on a six month journey

first South to Gulf Shores

and then West to Arizona
