Thank all of you for your thoughts Here are a few of mine.
Cindy, you pop into my thoughts every now and then and always bring a smile to my face.
Bob, little league, my horses will either be in Ocala or Wellington this Feb. and hopefully, my granddaughters will enter some of the shows on the weekends and I can sneak away. And by then, maybe, they'll let me play golf again. I think I remember that you live on the west coast of FL.
Yes, I've done well, I worked my ass off for 46 years in International Sales. I've spent over 2,100 nights of my life in Marriott Hotels. There is a price to pay for all of it. I've been lucky enough to work for two different people in my life who left me alone and let me do what I did best. I was always a commissioned salesman. I never had a regular weekly paycheck job. I've never had an office job.
Elizabeth and I have been together for 35 years, raised each others children. and just like all of use, stuggled to put all of our kids thru college and grad schools and didn't drive new cars for 10-11 years. The kids did, but we had junk. We were able to give our kids down payments on houses or townhouses.
We also have a confined mental ill daughter and a son that doesn't talk to us because I think he's a drunk, and I told him if he wanted to go on family vacations he couldn't drink. Marie, his wife, has been battling breast cancer for 12 years.
Now Elizabeth has terminal cancer. The point is that God has a way to even stuff out for all of us.
