TY. In the ways that count, I am quite lucky. 1 son is a fine auto mechanic & takes care of my car repairs even tho I have to buy parts of course, 1 has been in the navy for 10+ yrs now with 4 yrs to go on this hitch & 1 is in college studying to be a psycologist promising me that I will always have a place to live when he has his own practice.<quoted text>
I am glad you have family. When I told you that you were lucky you didn't have dependents, I only meant it in terms of the financial obligations. I was worried that you might be all alone. Hang in there, Pops!
I spent many yrs as a single custodial dad when the laws were still biased so collectively the mothers got away with about $140K-$150K in support for which my sons & I came up short but like I said, it is what it is.
My life hasn't been easy but it has been full in all ways but financial.
Thanx for your understanding but I keep putting 1 foot in front of the other & following my life line. I am far from alone. We are 5 guys that hug, love & think of each other all of the time. It is good.
