I Won the Lottery!!

An older gentleman asked his wife what she would do if he won the lottery. She said, “I’d take my half and be out of here”. The man said, “I see. Well, I just won $14. Here’s $7 now get out”!

Why do couples drift apart when the children are gone and it’s empty nester time? They should be having the time of their life. Travelling, visiting the grandkids, find hobbies,etc. 

It reminds me of an old joke. An older couple were driving one day when the wife said,”What happened to us? We used to sit side by side in the car, listening to our favorite music while you held my hand. Now we’re so far away” The old man said “I didn’t move”. 

I think we have a difficult time coming to grips with our advancing age of I know I do. Like many friends who have turned or are 60 this year. Some, like me are dreading it. 

I think it’s because I have regrets and instead of living in the moment like I’m supposed to. I break the rules and look behind and ahead. I know it’s not good for my health but sometimes. 

When I talk to my children I always feel bad for not spending more time with them. I could have performed fewer shows and spend more time with them. I think I was just running a thousand miles an hour to keep from hurting so badly. 

I don’t blame the mother of two of my children. I’ve since learned that things happen that are sometimes not what you want but somehow need. And if you ever feel like splitting up, use lottery ticket bit. Foolproof.
