    I’m 68, 69 in March and still employed in my chosen field. My wife and I have been together since 1974. I have two great kids out on their own doing well. I have two wonderful grandchildren who can’t wait to see me. I’ve visited 49 states and 40 countries. My wife and I drive German performance automobiles. Big vacations each year alternate between International destinations and Hawaii. I play a Telecaster and four other fine guitars. I never could have imagined when I was in college how my life would turn out. I’ve done everything I could have hoped for and more. When I retire at 70 I plan to go back to school to study music. I’m not boasting. I’ve truly been blessed way out of proportion to what I deserve. I guess that makes me a winner.

    No boss, no wife, no authority figures.
    Yes, those things cut both ways.
    Those things can bring great joy.
    I choose freedom.
    I am happy with that choice.
    It’s very expensive, but it’s worth it, for me.

    When I scan my lottery tickets, they keep coming up, "Sorry, not a winner". If I were a winner, I'd be writing this from my mansion in Costa Rica.

    I'm alive, my wife and my dogs love me, I've got some money in my pocket, a roof over my head that don't leak, plenty of food to eat, toys to play with, and a job I dont hate.

    I'd say that makes me a winner, and I'm alright.

    I have a good wife, a good daughter and a good dog.

    Everything else is just gravy.

    It’s not material things as mentioned above..got all those. They don’t matter much. It’s a loving family, a life well lived, a couple good guitars and amps and a band to use them in.
