Well I earned it as did my wife. Thankfully we have been blessed to be able to afford things and to visit also. The reason I never moved back to Ohio is because my kids settled here and all will or have married locals so visiting is easy. God has been very gracious to us.
Life is way too short. I buried my sister 2 weeks ago. My brother in law was happy that they retired early and traveled quite a lot. They enjoyed what time they had together. My wife has always said you only live once and I agree with her. We made sure that we would not be a burden on anyone as we saved, invested wisely and have good pension plans. I don't know what tomorrow may bring, but I hope that our planning will be good. Until then, I really enjoy the viewing parties I have with my family and the games I get to see. The grandkids will have lots of stuff. That you can be sure of. I was young and now I am old. Enjoy the wife of your youth, your family and the bucks and other things. Speaking of the bucks , I can hardly wait till 3:30 for the Hoosiers. So the $256 is really nothing knowing that just about every week my family comes together for a party and dinner as we watch a game. You can't put a price on that plus I get to see the bucks and the bengals play. I really enjoy it.
