Papas World – It is early – I look around – almost done!

It is early Thursday morning – I awoke at 3 am.!

Too much on my mind!

I look around – the car is packed

The next to final trip to Tammy and Marcus house

where we will establish a home base.

Then one more trip to the storage unit –

and finally the last trip – lock up and leave

We are changing – evolving – dreaming

a new adventure awaits – it is fun selecting places

seeing rentals – looking at real estate for sale!

We will go to where our eyes take us

but stay where our heart finds home!

We will seek warmth – sunshine & golf!

It is finally time to do that!

Living in NVA is $$$$ to golf!

Owning a home in NVA – well taxes are high

as is the HOA – and while we love our dream home

At our age – maintaining it is costly.

New roof – trim painted outside – new HVAC

A new fence was on the horizon –

Our home I must say is nearly perfect

The lawn I was told looks like Augusta National!

New Bamboo flooring – new fridge –

But we loved it and the way of life.

I guess it was the pandemic and the stock market that gave us thought.

Now was the time – the value was up and the market strong.

We have choices – places to live –

friends and family to visit

and God willing – grand daughters soccer to watch.

Once again we will laugh with the friends we have held close

for almost 38 years.

She will continue her home based internet business

Health – family – nutrition where ever we go.

Yes – I look around – almost finished – today I watch Bode

Sherry will help Tammy who is getting ready to reopen her store

529Kidsconsignment – closed because of the pandemic.

Taylor and Cassidy have tennis lessons

Yes – I was up early – yes I look around – time for coffee –

Almost done – almost 14 years here –

our dream home – now another dream begins

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY!

DREAM ON – I am awake now – time for coffee!

Papa’s World – The power to take your life in a new direction!

It was not easy to decide to sell our home – almost everything in it –

and move to another state – some 450 miles away!

It all started with the stock market slide – around the time the Pandemic hit!

Our retirement is in the 401 K and it took a big hit!

But – there is always a but!

The housing market was taking off!

From the last reduction in prices around 2006 –

and losing in that market –

We were now almost even – a rebound!

And it was going up!

Our oldest grand kids – Maddy Sarah Ella

With the three oldest grand kids

One in college – one in the fall in college and one who has a life of her own

And the three little ones – we would make it a point to return often –

after all – we were retired – and Sherry had her home based business –

that could go anywhere with phone and internet service

We would sell!

AND WE DID!

After 14 1/2 years – with the downturn behind us in the housing market

WE MADE A PROFIT and had all of our equity!

We followed our plan – sold our house and furniture –

for three months we went back and forth between our daughters houses!

We had our equity to either rent – or buy – we had choices!

And then by chance – I stumbled upon this – having no thought of moving to S.C. !

Our view today – we left end of September and went to North Myrtle Beach to Ocean Keyes!

Since that time – we have been home twice – holidays for three weeks – and now for a week!

The grand kids have been down – the little ones – and by the time you read this –

the older ones will have been here!

Our family – when we returned for a visit.

Our family when they came to visit!

We have started a new life – away but close enough to make it home in seven hours.

We are happy in our senior years – living life to the plus each day!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY

A new life – walking the beach every day –

We have each other – we have family and we have friends.

It was not easy – but God works in ways I can not explain.

We have started a new life and a new house build!

It will be done around the early part of June!

We had no idea a year ago we would be doing this!

Your life is what you make it – DREAM – live life to the PLUS!

Papa’s World – my brother Mike – known in the family nicknamed by Bill as JUICE – gone – but not forgotten – we grew up together.

Mike – shoveling snow for my mother.

He had red curly hair – a smile a mile wide and a laugh and giggle that you knew right away who it was.

He was my younger brother – we were like a second family for my parents –

Donna and Roger were 15 and 10 years older.

We had a sister who died at birth in between the two sets of kids.

We fought like cats and dogs do – but we also were close.

He instigated a lot of it and would scream bloody murder as loud as he could when I had enough.

I was the one who into trouble but mom always knew as she later told me.

He was just o darn likable with that hair and giggle.

MOM ( Mary) Sue ( Susan) his wife and Mike ( we look alike here I think.)

We played all the time together – cowboys and Indian’s – running the neighborhood –

He was always hurting himself – one time he climbed up on top of a attached shed at a neighbors house.

He was going to ambush me but I saw him and pretended to shoot him.

I saw what he was going to do and I yelled STOP – but he did it anyway –

always acting real life he sort of collapsed and rolled off the shed to the ground as if dead.

But there was a stone bird bath under the shed roof and when he came down he hit his elbow on it!

Off to the doctors office we went and then in the ambulance to the hospital to have surgery on the elbow!

He had to have a pin put in and that elbow was off to the side -making his arm seem crooked.

Mom ( Mary) talking to Mike’s daughter Jennifer at the kitchen table.

A few years later – we were on the front porch – and he had climbed up onto the porch railing – I told him he had better get down before he fell.

Well – as always – he gave me that silly laugh and giggle – and I could not help but smile until he did fall.

At the end of the porch beneath that railing – a 2 x 10 stuck out – he came down and hit that board with his other elbow and we repeated the same thing all over again with another surgery – now he had two elbows exactly the same!

But -it seemed like it was a perfect solution for him as it perfected his golf swing and he had a lot of power and strength in those arms – one time I was with him – and this was way before anyone was hitting the ball 300 yards.

We were playing the old number one hole at Smethport – he was a Freshman – me just beginning my senior year –

He hit that ball and because of how his elbows were now shaped – he hit it straight with power. That hole was a gradual uphill some 305 yards!

His ball ended up past the hole and into the yard behind it! Some 50 or 60 yards past! Uphill!

If I had not been there to see it – I would not believe it!

Gene Fazio – who was a card member of the PGA and a premier golfer in the Pa. and NYS area –

told me – “IF I HAD MY SHORT GAME AND MIKE’S DRIVING – I WOULD GO ON THE PGA TOUR”!

Mike was a scratch golfer even with those elbows.

Mike later with a red beard and that red curly hair!

Mike ended up bigger than me – he was as tall as my father who was a little over six foot tall.

The brother’s – Roger – Mike and I got our curly hair from my dad – my grandfather was bald.

Mike ended up around 215 pounds and played football – but he could kick that ball just like he hit golf balls.

Far and straight – he became a field goal kicker way before that was common in H.S.

His kick offs were always through the end zone and he went on to college at Mansfield University of Pa.

Where he became the kicker for the college football team.

He graduated in Criminal Justice.

My step dad John – Sue and Mike.

As I said before he was always doing something and getting hurt!

He was riding my bike one day and I told him to get off as he was not big enough to ride it!

His legs could barley touch the pedals – sure enough his foot slipped and he came down on the cross bar –

off to the hospital we went again – operation for a rupture!

My brother in law Bill nick named him JUICE!

I really do not know why other than he was like electric – energy running through him – always a live wire!

Then one day Bill and I were sitting on the front porch –

and he said “HERE COMES JUICE”!

And then Bill said “JESUS CHRIST”!

And Bill hollered at him – “JUICE- PUT THE ROPE DOWN”!

But too late!

Mike was walking up the street twirling a dog rope with a clasp on the end of it over his head like a cowboy!

He got it too low just after Bill yelled to put it down and it started to wind around his head lower and lower.

It came around and smacked him right on the mouth –

“KNOCKING OUT HIS FRONT TOOTH”!

Off to the dentist office we went – oral surgery to extract what remained in his mouth of that tooth.

THAT IN A NUTSHELL WAS MY BROTHER MIKE!

Red hair – bearded – always smiling and that silly laugh – giggle.

I MISS HIM as he passed away when I was 35.

Sue Mike Jenifer

My brother MIKE – loved – close as brothers are – gone way too young – but never forgotten.

R.I.P. “JUICE”

Papa’s World – ” I LEFT MY HEART IN SAN FRANCISCO”

GOOD MORNING

On our list – SAN FRANCISCO – and we made it !

The Golden Gate Bridge

We left in traffic in the early morning –

and arrived still in traffic crossing the GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE in FOG !

We had a destination – a parking garage –

But it was surrounded by one way streets !

So – drove around and around –

passing our way in a few times

because we could not get to it.

Parking garage

The plus to all that was the garage was right across the street from Pier 39 !

Alcatraz

We also had a view of Alcatraz in the bay.

We choose not to go there as Buck and Cindy had been there

and I wanted to spend more time in the city !

Pier 39

We walked and walked Pier 39 –

NOTE – we left Sacramento in 100 plus temps

had to have light jackets as it only got to 64 and foggy.

great place to people watch and also full of unique places.

If you go here – take it all in and search out a good place to eat !

San Fran sky line

It also was close to where we bought tickets

for a 2 1/2 hour bus tour ( you can hop on and off )

we selected to stay on and then walk when we got back.

At end of Pier 39

I also recommend you walk to the end of Pier 39

where you can see hundreds of huge Harbor Seals

all barking and moving around on floating docks!

Papa’s World – Golfing in the SANTA SCRAMBLE!

It was cool – 49 degrees – 32 four-person teams – (64 golf carts) 27 holes with a shotgun start – we only played 18 holes –

our very first SANTA SCRAMBLE at Magnolia Greens golf course in Leland, N.C.

Everyone was assigned a hole to go to at 10 am. and the carts were lined up in the parking area in the order they would leave

to get to the hole they would start on.

Everyone had red or green or both on and much more in celebrating Christmas and Santa.

Coffee or tea to warm us up and the plus side – NO WIND!

The course was in great shape and the grass was brown in its dormant state.

Papa – Cindy – Sherry and Buck – close friends for over 36 years. They live here in the neighborhood.

Getting ready to start – we had a way to drive to get to our hole to “T” off.

It was a fun day – while we did not finish near the top – we were not the bottom either – two teams posted a 57!!!!!

But we had fun – and dinner was provided –

It was our first scramble and we loved it.

Buck – Cindy – Papa – Sherry – PAPA’S WORLD – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog GOLFING IN THE SANTA SCRAMBLE!

Papa’s World – Living our lives to the plus!

Every morning for the past SIXTEEN YEARS – I have FRUITS – VEGETABLES – BERRIES and OMEGAS before breakfast!

You see – I have these capsules and I take two of each of what I said above.

I choose to do this for my own general health – because I do not eat the required amount in servings each day!

Since I am not rock climbing and heights scare me – we walk almost every day – I want to age healthy – maintain my memory – and live life to the plus each day!

My early years were eating anything – drinking anything and yes I smoked – I gave it up 38 years ago at age 35!

But I had to change – I choose this because the research – which is published – showed me everything –

and has changed me for the better – and it has helped me!

We are in the autumn years of our lives – here we are last August – on the ICW – living life one day at a time and life to the plus.

If interested – here is the info – http://www.sf.juiceplus.comssherrylynn49@aol.comsherryfitzsimmons18@gmail.com

Papa’s World – The world of good thoughts and humor.

Welcome to Papa’s World – a daily exercise in blogging my thoughts – words – dreams and life.

Papa’s World is designed on positive vibes – positive happenings – laughter – family and friends – a blog that details my family.

Papa and Sherry – my wife of over forty years – and two years before we married – my partner in family – life and beliefs.

I have learned it is the small things in life each day that mounts up to the joy that I love!

Family – friends – neighbors, and people from all walks of life – we live life one day at a time.

A sense of humor – laughing and exploring is what we love about each other and our life together.

This is my blog and our life together – PAPA’S WORLD – my site: livinglifedoingitmyway.blog my contact: fitztdf@fitztdf

Over 1000 blogs on this site – enjoy them – have a breakfast drink and sit back and enjoy life as we see it!

PAPA’S WORLD – a product of the above – thanks for reading and have a great day!

Papa’s World – CHOICE and CHOICES – your future is in your own logic – the path begins.

Choose wisely – select carefully – and always think before you leap!

Life is full of many paths to take – one little change can result in whole different life.

Think about this for a moment- what if?

Had you selected a different place to go in your direction of life!

Today’s World would look much different for you.

Those grandchildren that you love so dearly – might not exist.

Those old friends may never have happened.

You might be married to someone else.

You may not be retired but still working and that beach chair never happens!

Dare to be yourself!

Many doors exist for you – either you open or close them. Go through or turn away. The choice you make is owned by you.

Roads are not only straight – but curves and ups and downs come at you fast or slow. You make that choice.

Look around and see where you are and then think – what would have been had I gone another way?

But – do not dwell on the past – look for the things to come – be they small or large – the choice is yours to make.

Choose your path – choose your future and make the best of it you can.

My life would be so different in many ways had I made this or that choice.

I have no regrets – I like where I am – and I like where I have come from.

I choose to write every day – to record family – friends and our life together.

I choose to be me – I own my destiny.

And I am grateful for those choices I or we made.

Choosing to be me – choosing to love – care – God – family – to record it all and preserve it for future generations.

You can choose – you have a choice and you can make Choices – it is all up to you. Be wise – careful and think.

Be brave – daring and look forward – open those doors – go forth or turn away – make that choice.

YOU have the ABILITY to make your OWN LIFE!

Whatever and wherever it leads you – is yours to choose – be kind – have belief – and go forward
.

Papa’s World – High and Low Tides – exceptional.

October is the month for exceptional HIGH and LOW tides!

I did not know that!

No – I did not go to this extreme to see where the tide came up to.

But – from our Lanai one half mile away –

we could hear the BOOMING of the Surf!

So – Sherry looked it up and sure enough

we were in this week of very high and low tides!

So – we went for our daily walk in the morning

Just after high tide had been there

and I captured this photo!

HIGH TIDE CAME UP TO THE BOTTOM STEP

OF THE LIFEGUARD CHAIR! WOW!

And then in the afternoon – I snapped this picture

looking back toward the mainland

and down the beach – that same chair would of been

where the light colored sand is!

This was not even LOW TIDE YET!

I guess this happens once a year in October!

ME AND MY SHADOW!

This beach is very wide normally

during normal tides

and very flat and hard surface

you can wade way out if you want

not me – I saw a sand shark caught

within 20 yards of the beach!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – Our patio – cool nights – relaxing with our Solo firepit – campfire on the patio.

In the world of camping – firepits – roasting marshmallows – I admit – I am not all that into it!

This was really my wifes idea – as she was growing up – camping – boating was what her family did.

I did all the normal young lad stuff – sleeping out under the stars( freezing in those NWPA nights.)

We sometimes had a campfire while on the hill sleeping out.

I was a scout and we did overnight camping in tents –

as a youth group counsler – we spent a week in the far northern Canadian Parks.

Canoeing and camping for a week with 14 young students – 7th – 12th. grade kids.

But it is not on my bucket list!

Sherry showed this picture to me – saying how would you like that on the new home patio?

It is called a SOLO STOVE – and once it gets going – smokeless!

It will burn more efficiently so it says – and is toasty warm to sit around with no smoke and sparks!

OKAY – I say – thinking there goes my couch – snacks and Netflix!

So now – we buy little bags of wood ( $$$$$$) and those little tiny firestarters!

I prefer those wrapped in paper logs that you light and they burn for like 4 hours! LOL

So now I am an official campfire sit-in back patio sort of guy!

I really did not expect this – and yes – once it starts – there is no smoke or sparks.

It does get toasty warm – so much so that sometimes you have to move back!

We have the perfect set up – almost sheltered on three sides – concrete slab – comfy chairs.

And when the family came – Marcus and Tammy and the three little ones ( I call them) we had a fire each night!

And they had SMORES!

We even went scaveger to find old dead wood in the woods behind and across the street!

Do you know when the tempature gets in the low 50’s – snakes become almost inactive?

Otherwise – that was a no-go for me!

I have been converted – I am a SOLO STOVE convert – basking by the firepit – no shoes – no socks and no problem!

Now – the patio concrete has been painted a slate gray ( I did that) two coats – and we have two small bags of wood to burn!

I still like the single wrapped in the paper log to burn for four hours which you can see here as a trial!

And – this SOLO STOVE is everything they say it was!

HHHHMMMMNNNN – ARE JELLO SHOTS NEXT?

I am now a firepit official starter –

” PASS THE MARSHMALLOWS HONEY –

PUT THE CHOCOLATE ON THE GRAHMCRACKERS ”

get ready for some warm toasty evenings –

BEDTIME IS STILL 8 PM. FOR ME!

SOME THINGS NEVER CHANGE!

Papa’s World – Thanksgiving day walk on Sunset Beach – N.C.

Sherry and her sister Debbie

Auntie as we call her – came to spend four days with us over Thanksgiving – we kept her busy!

Fat Harolds – Carolina Opry – beach – shopping – Boundry House to eat – Christmas boat flotilla –

Ocean Isle Beach golf cart parade – more shopping and exploring the upper end of OIB.

It was a good four days – tired but got a lot in.

Beach access and Sunset Beach pier.
That would be me and Sherry!
For Thanksgiving day – there were quite a few people on the beach and a couple in the water!

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – Life in general – living healthy.

We grow our own produce year-round on our back patio.

You also can see my wife’s sun tea on the table to the right!

Since I had a heart attack almost eight years ago – I LIVE ONE DAY AT A TIME!

We walk almost every day and try to play golf once a week!

One of the reasons we moved to the border of N.C and S.C. – was to be near the beach – which we are very near two of them!

We also find humor in a lot of people- places and things!

This is but a small view of our life together for 42 years.

Thank you for reading PAPA’S WORLD – my site: livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

PAPA’S WORLD – LIFE IN GENERAL – LIVING HEALTHY!!

Papa’s World – Papa and Sherry – beach & golf and shopping! Retired with part-time income!

This is me! LOL, but we do enjoy golfing – by ourselves or with friends!

Sherry and Papa – married for over 40 years – together for 42 years! Living now what is called THE SALT LIFE!

We are retired – although for the past sixteen years – Sherry has owned and operated a network marking business!

Allowing us to retire in N.C. in Cameron Woods Community, Ocean Isle Beach!

We are four miles to one beach and six miles to another beach.

Here we are with a neighbor on Sunset Beach – relaxing in the sun on a weekday – living what locals call THE SALT LIFE!

We found this little piece of paradise – where the temps are moderate during FALL – WINTER and SPRING!

It can and is HOT in the summer – but we find the ocean – with a breeze – more than comfortable.

5 to 10 minutes and we are sitting on the sand!

The beach was a major factor in choosing this area – but also – love to golf!

We are within thirty minutes of over 30 golf courses!

Four of them are right across the street!

We can choose whatever we want to play!

Now – we are not all that good – but being out in the open on the golf course is what we love.

We have purchased what is called the first tee – which gives us major breaks in what we pay each 18 holes!

32 different courses – just call up and make an afternoon tee time!

We like playing afternoons as most people like to play before noon!

Major shopping – outlets and big box stores – are only a thirty-minute drive for us down Myrtle Beach.

Sherry and Papa at Tanger Outlets – Myrtle Beach – S.C. Thanks for reading Papa’s World – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Being retired with an income additional to SS and Pension and 401K –

Has allowed us to select where to live and this is THE SALT LIFE!

Papa’s World – From LITTLE ONES to young Ladies – OUR OLDER GRANDDAUGHTERS!

What seems like only yesterday – has been 22 years in the making!

Early family picture before Bode and the twins not walking yet.

The three oldest are on the left with their parents – Maddy – Ella and Sarah – on the right – Taylor and Cassidy- the twins.

Maddy – now 22 – Sarah – now 16 and Ella – now 19

I remember all three – on Christmas day – early – sitting at the top of the stairs – giggling – waiting for their parents to wake up and go down for their stockings!

This picture would have been about that time!

Now today – Ella – Maddy, and Sarah.

Ella and Sarah are tall like their grandma – Sherry who is 5’9″ – both Ella and Sarah are as tall or taller.

Maddy is 5’6″ – like her mom.

Maddy is a senior in college – Ella a Sophomore in College and Sarah is a Sophomore in H.S.

The time has gone by so quick – the little ones are all grown up and now are SISTERS!

By that, I mean confining with one another – all there for each other –

although years separate them – bonding keeps them close.

Papa’s World – Early morning sunrise around the lawn and house.

Stepping out the front door of our house in Cameron Woods to the morning sunrise!

We choose this lot because of the sunrise and sunset from our driveway!

You look right to the East and left to the West!

Looking out the front door to the West!

We have been here going on fifteen months – and have had numerous sunrise and sunset skies

that is absolutely beautiful!

This is us! No snow or ice!

View of the front and looking SW toward the ocean some 2 to 4 miles away!

We are in OIB but on the mainland side – six miles to Sunset Beach and four miles to OIB.

The sunrise from the backyard – all the tree line to the right is protected!

Our backyard borders a protected area – it can not be developed or cut down – the second reason we chose this lot to build our new home!

Looking out at the backyard and treeline.
As we progress into the future – we have carefully had the landscape done – replacing pine straw with stones and mulch – eventually going to all stones and borders.
We also wanted an open patio and a firepit – along with a place to grow our own organic veggies – which we have done now year round!

This is now our third harvest since early spring – and are going on our second harvest of cucumbers!

She finally talked me into purchasing a grill and we often grill out here – we have no gas and the house is all electric – and electric stove tops we have found are hard to keep clean – thus I grill! LOL

Our little flower garden next to the treeline – now if we can keep the deer from munching the leaves! LOL

Welcome to PAPA’S WORLD

Papa World – PAPA and SHERRY – BEACH LIFE!

Bring a little humor into your life!

We choose to move to Ocean Isle Beach after living for nine months in North Myrtle Beach –

sixteen miles away.

We are about eight miles to the S.C. – N.C border.

We have access to two beaches within six miles and a half dozen others within thirty minutes!

WE ARE NOW LIVING “BEACH LIFE:!

Strolling the beach or just sitting on the pier at either beach is a dream come true.

We worked a combined 79 1/2 years between us at the same corporation.

We are retired but still have had an internet business for sixteen years –

allowing us to live the life we dreamed about.

We both wanted warm weather as it does not bother us.

We both love the water and the ability to explore and have options each day.

LIVING LIFE TO THE PLUS as we call it.

Our goal in life.

PAPA and SHERRY – Papa’s World – BEACH LIFE!

Papa’s World – bringing color to the back yard with Crepe Myrtles and Oleander bushes.

I wanted color back here – the builder planted white Crepe Myrtles out front – these are WATERMELLON!
We also replaced all the Pine Straw and moved it to the tree line where we had three Oleanders put in!

They are young plants and hoping they will take hold – watering them everyday – but next year they should bloom

a bright RED againest the back drop of the protected tree line.

The second Crepe Myrtle – all trees in the yard now have stone and brick or edging depending where they are. The ones next to the house are mulched in black and serve as a contrast to the light gray siding.

PAPA’S WORLD: livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY – FAMILY MEETS FRIENDS!

Papa’s World – almost eight years since my heart attack – living in health one day at a time.

The dawning of each day is another day for me living life to the plus!

We had a lifestyle change 17 years ago – I had eaten unhealthy for 45 years – much of that time fast food!

And I am fortunate that we took steps to eat healthily – as in my mind – I would not have survived –

For I had a Massive Heart Attack almost eight years ago!

Up until then, I was a junkie at Mcdonald’s!

But Sherry started taking nutrition classes and I followed what she learned.

I had already done the damage to my heart previously

had I not changed –

Well – the doctors told me I was the healthiest heart attack they had ever seen!

What we had done for nine years saved my life!

Today – I eat greens – chicken and fish and very little red meat.

I gave up fast foods – most red meat – most dairy and no more milk!

No more sodas and cut way down on sweets.

It is a very hard thing to do – so my motto today is LIVING LIFE ONE DAY AT A TIME !

Once a day – a health drink – a rainbow of colors – a meal supplement – made by my wife for both of us, and it tastes so good!

Cilantro – frozen blueberries – orange juice – two bananas – and a teaspoon of Organic Barley Grass

and Micro Ingredients( Vitamin A – Iron – Protein – Sodium – Carbohydrates – 1 g)

Blend in a blender and then drink a full glass!

Keep a good sense of humor!

Sherry is a certified Health Coach – we have also for 17 years taken a supplement called Juice Plus.

A process where 30 fruits – vegetables and berries – are juiced – dried – and put into capsule form or gummies!

Taken every day – this is what changed the most in my health.

And as a way to watch what I eat every day so as not to overload my system –

I also drink one of their powdered shakes – French Vanilla or Dutch Chocolate

and for me, it is a meal supplement! Usually lunch!

This is so true for me!

I now call my life – LIVING LIFE TO THE PLUS – ONE DAY AT A TIME!

It has been a journey – one that I can write about as I am still alive!

This is me – this is my life – my reasons to still be here –

Thanks for reading and if you are hungry –

Enter into my world and have a salad with some shrimp and let it be your livinglifedoingitmyway.blog PAPA’S WORLD!

Papa’s World – OIB – 4th. of July golf cart parade!

Front row seats – 284 decorated golf carts – thousands of people.

We were front row with our chairs and the grandkids were so excited!

Here you see Bode – Taylor – Cassidy and Sherry.

It was a joyous celebration of our nations birthday!

There were also other participates in the parade!
Sherry ( MORMOR) Taylor Cassidy and Bode watching as the parade begins.
As the parade continued – dark clouds were rolling in – thunder in the distance!
The clouds rolled in and the thunder got loud – soon we saw lightening and we headed across the street beneath the wine – beer and coffee shop!
Just before we crossed the street – this man saw me take this picture and his comment was – THIS IS WHAT YOU WILL REMEMBER THE MOST ABOUT THIS PARADE – THUNDER- LIGHTENING- AND POUR DOWN RAIN FROM THESE CLOUDS and he was right – we made it just in time and two houses on the beach were struck by lightening – MOTHER NATURE PREVAILED!
Later that day – sunset – the storm cleared out – we made it back from OIB and all was well!
Thanks for reading PAPA’S WORLD – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

OIB – JULY 4th. GOLF CART PARADE – and then the RAIN CAME!

Papa’s World – Our granddaughters – ELLA and SARAH!

Maddy Sarah Ella

Today I write on the two younger granddaughters – having written about Maddy in a previous blog.

Ella – caring – always does what you ask with no questions.

Warm – friendly – my LITTLE TINY as I called her.

Sarah – outgoing – fashion – arts – glamor – Broadway – big cities.

My Whirlwind when she was little.

ELLA – today a picture of health – playing college soccer and starting as a Freshmen.

While she may be a little homesick – she is thriving at college.

Stable – understanding – polite – team – not an “I” in her vocabulary!

NUMBER 10 – this is ELLA!

She is who she is – kind – smart – always giving – understanding and an idol to Bode as she is to many little ones.

Sarah today a Freshmen in H.S.

Try as I might to keep them little once again – she has grown these last years –

soon to be 5′ 9″ and beyond like her grandmother Sherry – as is Ella.

With her mother Debby

” GO FORTH – THE WORLD IS YOURS” is what I think when I see Sarah.

Today – Sarah – Ella – Maddy
Ella number 10 in the white
Sarah homecoming – representing the Freshmen class with her lifetime friend and neighbor Justin
GO FORTH THE WORLD IS YOURS

Papa’s World – oldest granddaughters – Maddy – Ella and Sarah.

All three have CHARACTER

It seems like only yesterday they were running around – laughing – excited – little – little girls.

Sitting on the top of the stairs – waiting for their parents to get up on Christmas mornings.

The youth soccer games – then the travel teams – and for Sarah – dance – acting – animated.

Today – they are 21 – 18 and 15 – all about to leap forward another year older.

Maddy is a senior to be in college and Ella is a Sophomore to be in college.

Sarah is a Sophomore to be in H.S.

Maddy at 5’6″ is now the shortest – Ella is 5’10 and Sarah is almost as tall.

They take after their grandma’s Swedish heritage – Sherry is 5’9″.

Both Maddy and Ella play soccer and start on their college teams – Maddy will be one of the captains.

Sarah is a free spirit – funny – outgoing – and will run track.

Sarah – Maddy – Ella

The Myers girls – our oldest granddaughters.

Our little granddaughters are gone –

replaced now by beautiful young ladies.

Maddy has a major in Environmental Science

Ella is going to be an elementary PHYS ED TEACHER.

Sarah – who knows – she is a free spirit – a runner and dancer and acting.

She also is young and has many years left to decide.

Debby and Mike – Mother and Father – are proud parents.

Our family from Lake Holiday, Cross Junction – Winchester, Va.

Little girls have almost all grown up.

Papa’sWorld – Yosemite – natural wonders – El Capitan

Cindy & Buck

Once again I drive – up and up – hairpin turns –

We are going to Yosemite –

Cindy – Sherry and Buck

The drop offs are a thousand feet –

There are no guard rails – the berm drops a foot

and then it is straight down !

Cindy and Sherry
later we would drive on the road at the bottom

There is no other way to describe it – 15 MPH is too fast !

I would constantly pull over at the spots to pull over to let traffic pass !

They would take the turns in the other lane –

Too many in hurry – unsafe drivers out there !

Sherry – with a wonder in back of her

In the distance you can see El Capitan –

Site of the movie FREE SOLO !

President Roosevelt

This pristine area has been preserved for one reason –

Papa’s World – Our granddaughters – Maddy and Cassidy.

One is the oldest granddaughter while the second is the youngest granddaughter with her twin sister.

One is in her third year at University of Lynchburg – Enviromental Engineering major.

One is in the fifth grade – so caring she calls or zooms her grandmother almost every day.

One starts at the attack front position for the ranked lady soccer hornets soccer team.

And had played in 13 games as a freshmen – started her Sophomore year and again as a junior.

One moved to sit beside her older cousin at the soccer game.

Both are dear to our hearts!

Cassidy with MARLEY – the newest addition to her family!
Always smiling – always caring – always protective of her brother – just who she is. Cassidy
Maddy – a junior at the University of Lynchburg – Environmental Engineering – playing soccer and carrying above a 3.80 GPA! Next to Papa in the picture.

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – show a little LOVE!

We went to Lynchburg Va. to watch our grand daughter play soccer.

Our oldest daughter – her husband and the three grand daughters

all were there – the next day we went for a walk along the river.

Mike Sarah ( youngest) Maddy ( oldest – college soccer) Ella ( senior – college soccer in the Fall)

We watched the game Friday night in the rain – Maddy scored a goal

And the next day – after her practice – went for a walk along the river.

Sarah ( 5’7″) Ella ( 5′ 8 1/2″) Maddy ( 5′ 6″) Sherry ( 5′ 9″)

The girls are tall – Sarah seems like she will be the tallest as she is only 14.

But – when we were home at our other daughters house-

Taylor who is only ten years old – is already 5′ 1/2″ tall!

I think she will be the tallest along with Bode.

Our walk lasted a couple hours

as we were going for a late lunch and a early dinner

Debby ( Mom) already shorter than her daughters.

We walked – a fun walk – a lot of laughter!

Maddy Sarah Ella

It was a fun afternoon – a break from the rain – warm enough when walking

to enjoy the time together.

LOVE!

Debby Mike Papa Sherry Sarah Maddy Ella

Thank you for reading Papa’s World!

LOVE!

Our three oldest grand daughters!

Papas World -in the world of business – Fruits & Veggies!

Are you searching for a opportunity?
A way to work from home part time?

We were -13 plus years ago –

what was at first a way to pay for our purchase-

To doing The Business part time –

To retiring and have a supplemental income

To be able to travel – (read my blogs over 200)

And once retired to remain in our home

near our grand kids!

It is a very simple product – fruits – vegetables – berries –

put into capsules for you to take two of each everyday with water!

And research proven that it immediately goes into the bloodstream

repairs cellular damage – and boosts the immune system

along with other proven research facts!

Over 30 published researches from major institutions

around the WORLD!

And if you have a hard time swallowing
THERE ARE GUMMIES!
GREAT FOR CHILDREN!
And – as a bonus – children – ages 4 to 19
are FREE!
When a adult purchases the product
one child per adult purchase
gets it free for up to FOUR YEARS
as long as the adult continues!
And COLLEGE STUDENTS

The GUMMIES come in FRUITS – VEGETABLES and BERRIES!

We use them for snacks rather than candy !

Need a PROTEIN drink
a drink for breakfast – lunch or work out!
A way to cut fats – calories from large meals!
Then our two powered drinks
DUTCH CHOCOLATE
FRENCH VANILLA
I just add crushed ICE
a cup of Soy or Almond Milk
Water and whatever FRUIT
I want -in a blender
and it fills me up!
THE DRINKS ARE PROTEIN
GLUTEN-FREE NON-GMO
LOW GLYCEMIC
FIBER & VEGAN

We also have bars – to use as a snack or in place of a meal with the drink!

The bars are Protein – Fiber – Non-Soy –

Vegetarian – Gluten free –

Non Dairy & Low Glycemic!

The Published research says it all
NSA approved for pro athletes

So – how is the business and what to expect?

It all depends on yourself!

You can do it part time as we did for years

or – full time – it is your choice

but know either way – you have a support group!

You can follow this
or do this!
Or SHARE a concept of health and nutrition
much as you would a movie – a book
or a favorite vacation spot!

We started the business part time

to pay for our purchase each month

and then to get all our grand kids started

each of the six have taken Juice Plus either all their lives

or the majority of their lives!

We eased in and then saw the benefits

then we simply shared- first with our family

then our friends with the help of our sponsors!

The steps to success
and success is at every step!
Those whom you sponsor
because of their own effort
can pass you on the steps!
It is completely up to you
or them how to progress
You still get a commission
on their efforts either way!

The Juice Plus Business plan is fair-

It allows you to go at your own pace

and you never lose what you gained!

Once you have achieved that step

You do not go back down

and those that you sponsor as a partner

can progress above your step!

The cost of HEALTH & NUTRITION
less than a coffee at Starbucks!

The cost is less than that treat that you might buy

It really is affordable

Papa’s World – In less than FOUR WEEKS – growing VEGGIES in Cameron Woods Community!

We have grown our own VEGGIES for almost ten years!

A neighbor saw ours and wanted to know more about it!

They made the purchase of the system and I went to their home to put it together.

Less than four weeks later – they asked me and my wife back to check it out and show them when to add water and nutrients!

The pictures here are what I found in less than FOUR WEEKS!

Front view of the system – and it must have sunlight four to six hours a day!
Side view of the growing system which has no dirt!

The system is grown only with water – air, and nutrients!

A pump is in the bottom reservoir of water – and is attached to a timer outside.

Water and nutrients are pumped up the center of the white tower –

where it trickles downward mixing with air on the roots of the plants.

You can start harvesting salads in a couple weeks with no pesticides!

From growing system to table!

No weeding – no pesticides that you do not know what they are!

Grown in your own residence – from seeds

anything that does not grow on a tree!

And with today’s cost of produce

it is a winner for you!

Growing and eating your own produce!
Our own growing system behind the chairs!

For more information and how to purchase your own growing system –

Papa’s World – The life we live over the years.

On one of our many trips with friends

We have explored and traveled the World together and with close friends.

Even today – where we have settled into our home – we take the offbeat paths –

exploring – looking – finding small visual treasures!

Family – Capital in the background in DC.

When in NVA – we lived close to the nation’s capital –

often taking the metro in with the grandkids.

Walking and exploring – visiting the museums.

Attending THE ELTON’S with Debby

Twice a year we travel either the East Coast or the West Coast for the national conference.

Seeing old friends and meeting new ones – TEAM GENERATIONS was born of this.

Papa’s World – Over the years – our life together.

Barb (GIGI) Debbie (sister) Sherry Papa 8-31-2004

Somewhere in Denmark – Norway or Sweden – on our 1400-mile excursion – by bus – for 10 plus days.

It was a dream for everyone to go to where Barb’s mother and father were born.

We only twice stayed in a hotel for more than one day!

We saw so many beautiful things and places and even loaded the bus onto a huge ferry

and made our way down or up the fiords – with hundreds of other people.

The most exotic thing for me to eat was Reindeer!

The old buildings are hundreds of years old – the rune stones –

Sherry and I went off by ourselves and toured old town Stockholm and then the new city.

Eating big breakfasts is the major meal of the day!

A trip we have in memories and locked away in our minds.

In a garden in the middle of Sarasota, Florida

A trip we made to visit our friend Ginger at her condo on the waterfront.

A place we considered retiring to but for the distance away – it was a possibility!

Someday we hope to return and explore more.

Shares a toast with her sister Debbie in the Villages, Florida.

Before my brother passed away – we spent winters with him at his home in The Villages.

It was a unique time in our lives – riding the golf cart everywhere – playing golf with him.

A time that I shall always associate with Roger – my brother and how we were the only ones left.

The Villages – I also could have lived in – but HAPPY HOUR came too early and too long! LOL

Papa’s World – Great Smokey Mountains – health – team – bonding – Generations of Nutrition.

Sixteen gathered at a cabin located between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg –

They drove hours to get there – all up and down the East Coast.

You see – my wife Sherry is a Certified Health Coach –

and also a rep for The Juice Plus Company and has been for the last sixteen years.

My health is the reason I am here today and she has played a major role in that.

Every six months – a conference is held – one on the East Coast and one on the West Coast.

The title is JUICE PLUS + LIVE!

Living life to the PLUS – one day at a time.

What started as a part-time hobby – became a retirement fun job.

In those sixteen years – we have traveled the country – met so many fine people

who all have one major thing in common –

HEALTH and NUTRITION and in our case FAMILY GENERATIONS!

Thus the TEAM GENERATIONS was born – led by a mother and daughter –

Today it has grown and grown and the leaders now gather –

Gathering for JUICE PLUS + LIVE

For the last two years – the Pandemic has kept the gathering in one place down to a minimum

But in October – it will be back in full swing in Atlanta!

Eight thousand people, normally, we shall see, the Pandemic has kept them apart.

HEALTH and NUTRITION – SALAD IN A JAR!

This time – arrive on Thursday – leave on Sunday – fun – learning – games – all part of bonding.

Linda and Sherry – a little break time.

In October I’ll once again be going – driving Sherry and seeing old friends once again.

Education – seeing new sights and making new friends.

We are now neighbors and more important – FRIENDS!

Not only do we live near each other – but we have bonds that go back to WNY!

They also lived back in NYS and know many of the places we know!

They purchased a boat a few months ago – mainly for fishing The ICW!
Sherry and Diane as we slowly go from Bricklanding boat ramp all the way to the Little River!
Causeway over to Sunset Beach.

They had invited us to go boating on their second trip out after they had tried it out on their first outing.

We had traveled the length of Ocean Isle Beach – Sunset Beach – Bird Island and finally onto the Little River!

It was a warm day off the water but the wind on THE ICW made it a bit chilly

and long sleeves were welcomed!

We got to LITTLE RIVER just as the CASINO BOAT was returning to the port.
It is really a very large boat that goes out to the ocean where they can legally gamble!
We had no idea we would see this and it was a neat adventure!
Sherry and Diane

We spent almost four hours traveling down to Little River – just cruising slowly and returning!

Our granddaughter was leaving that afternoon to go back to the Unversity of Lynchburg, Va.

So we made an early trip to NMB with her to take in the parade and see some vendors.

Everyone was throwing candy – shirts – hats – beads!

SAINT PATRICKS DAY PARADE – NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.
PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – MEMORIES from before we moved from Va. to N.C.

Sherry – speaking before a large gathering on Health and Nutrition at the Doubletree in the D.C. area.

For sixteen years she is and has been a Certified Health Coach –

teaching the value of a plant-based diet.

She is an SSC for the Juice Plus Company –

And my inspiration to maintain a healthy living and aging style.

For sixteen years, my go-to for maintaining my health.
Following in the footsteps of their mother – Debby – QMND and Tammy – S.C

It has been a journey – one that is not easy to maintain with all the food that is out there –

but one that has become a way of life for their families –

and the concept of “TEAM GENERATIONS” that now has all the grandkids following.

Along with so many others all over the country and their own families.

TEACHING GOOD HEALTH THROUGH HEALTHY SELECTIONS – and continuing in N.C.

OUR TOWER GARDENS, BACK IN BRAMBLETON, VA.

We continue to grow here in N.C. and our experiment of the twelve-month growing season

has been a success!

THE TOWER GARDEN IS ON OUR BACK PATIO.

We decided to bring one Tower Garden with us and last August started our growing season.

We have continued all through the winter here –

experiencing SNOW – ICE – HIGH WINDS – temps into the TEENS!

It has survived all of that with a cover we brought with us from Va.

It allows the sun in and heats up during the day –

Metallic surface and everything survived regardless of our 1/4 inch ice storm.

I am not sure where we bought this covering but it was worth it as we had salads every night.

Papa’s World – Sunrises and Tower Garden!

With every sunrise since last August – our Tower Garden has been out in the patio just chugging along!

We set it up then and started our seeds from scratch right in the rock wool and placed them in the pods.

And it has been producing PRODUCE ever since regularly!

GOOD MORNING SUNRISE FROM CAMERON WOODS COMMUNITY, OCEAN ISLE BEACH, N.C.

Now in that timeframe, we have had HEAT – SUNSHINE, STORMS, HIGH WINDS, SNOW, and ICE!

We have covered it up with a metallic mesh to protect it from freezing

and the temps have gotten down into the mid to high teens!

One time overnight we had 1/4 inch of ICE all over everything!

And – it has survived ALL OF THAT!

The Tower Garden on our patio – protected on two sides from wind and in sun 80 % of the daylight.

Our sunny days in the summer can be HOT in the sun.

We ran the timer for the pump – 15 minutes on and 15 minutes off during that HOT TIME!

This was an early morning picture – around 8 am.

Fresh lettuce and spinach for all winter for dinner and shakes. ( spinach)

We rotated the plants and replanted them when the need arises.

In the early fall, we had tomatoes and cucumbers, and celery along with herbs and lettuce.

We are going to plant more variety this time – in fact as I write this –

We pulled all the plants out – took the Tower Garden apart – cleaned it up –

replanted those plants we pulled out and started new seeds including cukes-

and tomatoes and some others.

It took all of maybe an hour and a half to do that – cleaning – and putting new water and tonic in.

And that night we cut off some lettuce for dinner!

If this interests you – you can contact Sherry at http://www.sf.juiceplus.com on her website.

Or you can email her at ssherrylynn49@aol.com

We have been growing I think for ten years and a neighbor just ordered one!

When they are ready we will go and help them get started –

EVERYTHING you need for the first year of growth is there!

Papa’s World – Sunset -Sunrise and the Tower Garden!

A look to the East at Sunset

From the end of our driveway – we can see both the Sunrise and the Sunset!

As the fall comes on and summer has ended – the Sun starts to move each day –

and in this picture – the sunrise is more to the right – in the fall it has moved to the left.

Turning around and facing the house – the Sunset in the West!

We came to view this lot at around 2:00 pm. on a sunny afternoon a year ago last October.

And we could see how the Sun would go across the lot

and knew we would have views of Sunrise and Sunset – we were hooked and the trees would remain.

Standing on our patio in the backyard – The trees and the Sunset.

Our view every night – Sunset in Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach, N.C.

Thanks for reading Papa’s World – next blog – Sunrise and the Tower Garden.

Papa and Sherry – PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – New home – the build begins – living our dreams.

As the day begins at the condo – the build of our new home begins some six-teen miles away – in Cameron Woods at Ocean Isle Beach – N.C. We searched and searched – but all in vain as the cost to buy was equal or more than to build what we wanted!

Our view here I shall always remember – in all we will be here for nine months!

I captured this shot as a flock of geese were coming right at me before

rising up over the lanai and roof.

We decided to build – that way we would have everything we wanted

A single story – no stairs – covered front porch – screened in covered lanai.

Close to the beach ( four miles) in the country!

Close to golfing ( over 20 courses near by)

And with in 6 1/2 hours to travel back home

or family to travel here!

Materials for the new home – ground is ready – all utilities in and inspected – waiting for pour of concrete!
Forms and moisture barrier
Some view in one direction of neighborhood – I think in total maybe fifty homes will be here.
When done – a two car garage with pull down stairs and finished storage overhead.

We will have around 1900 sf. of heated space –

in addition to a 140 sf covered and screened in lanai

and a open 10 x 14 concrete patio.

There will be a covered front porch

and views of the neighborhood.

The back will be woods with no one building there

as it will be a conservation area.

We will be four miles to Ocean Isle Beach and six miles to Sunset Beach

A thirty minute drive back to North Myrtle Beach

and a fifthteen minute drive to Calabash

and a fifthteen minute drive to Shallotte.

All this in the middle of some twenty golf courses we will be playing!

The concrete is poured – and rain is now slowing up everything!

But – all the inspections have been completed

and our contractor calls us every Monday to give updates

and answer any questions!

The forms are out – concrete is in – framing will be next!
View of the garage and the woods behind the new build.

We drive over every Sunday – no one is working!

That way – if it is not raining – we can get out and look it over!

This will be our third house together building.

All three were unique and we have input on all of them.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – February – 77 degrees – BEACHING IT!

After a winter with rare snow and even rarer ice – 77 degrees and we headed for the beach!

We moved here – almost on the S.C. border – to have the weather we can walk in every day!

And we do that 90 % of the time – except when the wind is blowing!

YES – we are fair-weather walkers!

But then – it seems once a week – it is BEACH WEATHER!

And a few other people feel the same way!
For being off-season and not spring – locals hit the beach!
Sherry – chair – sand and the ocean – water – fishing boats – casino boat way out – life is good!
Spending quality time with neighborhood friends for a couple hours of beaching it!

Thanks for reading!
