Well this is the 30th anniversary of my divorce — and they said it would never last. 1980 was a tough year. On Jan 30th my dad died and on Feb 11th I got divorced. Nothing like a little stress to keep you going.
I actually found out that my ex died last year. I haven’t seen him for a long time but it felt rather icky to find out he died. You know, even if you are divorced this is a person who was a big part of your life for a while and I didn’t hate him so it was icky.
Two things got me through: 1) the 1980 US Olympic hockey team winning gold was such a high; and 2) playing “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor over and over again right after the divorce. And I did survive.
There were some really good times … unfortunately there were more bad times. But, here’s to the good times …
Boy my hair looks really good doesn’t it? I think Tom looks like Lee Marvin, do you?
