  1. Harry, The last sentence in your post is exactly what I thought...and what I did. I've been there/done that. And if I could do it over again, I'd do it differently.

    Everyone's situation is unique and I'm not judging...but believe me when I say your happiness should NOT take a back seat and your kids are WAAAAY stronger than you think. Having an unhappy dad is not what's best for your kids (ooops, sorry, that was a little judgemental.)

    I'm not pro-divorce. I'm pro-happy. Life is too short to spend it in joy's waiting room.


  2. Ira...

    The biggest mistake anyone can do, to them selves and to their loved ones, is to stay in a loveless relationship. It's not fair to anyone. And unfortunately it wastes time! Time that could be spent smiling, laughing, sharing, caring, and most importantly...at peace.

    I spent years at war with my self, feeling bad about feeling bad about my marriage. It consumed me. All I could think about was how much I had failed.

    Looking back I now realize I was an idiot!! What a waste of energy! What a waste of time! And what a waste of ME!! When I finally left the marriage people rejoiced! My kids rejoiced! Dad was back! That smiling Irishman with a Boston accent and punny sense of humor was back! Dave was back! I rediscovered the guy I always wanted to be. And ya know what? It felt good...and still does...every day!!!!

    You deserve to feel good, Ira. It's okay. Love yourself first and the love of everyone else will come along for the ride.


  3. I just created an eric carmen "hash tag" on twitter. (I just learned about this thingy today.). A 'hash tag' connects everyone on twitter who likes similar topics. A hash is this: # punctuation mark.

    So you can type in #ericcarmen and get connected to everyone else who's writing about eric. Put the #-mark in front of ericcarmen and everyone will see what YOU post about him, too.


  4. Robyn you are SO right! Dale Dorman (during his RKO days) was the greatest. Also loved Ron Robin (spelt with an 'i', not a 'y') and Bud Ballou on WMEX, and Charlie Kendell on WVBF.

  5. Thanks everyone! Annie and I are whooping it up in Key West! Great place to celebrate a birthday! She's sleeping off her 5 margaritas right now. I'm nursing my 7th beer, watching the stars shine over the pounding surf on the deck of our hotel room. Oh...and my daughter called me earlier today to tell me she's engaged. All in all....a wicked good day!!! Thank's again for thinkin of me!

  7. In my 55 years on this planet I've never dyed my hair...until yesterday.

    What a mistake!!

    I've got a job interview on Friday so my wife suggested SHE do some work on my salt and pepper hair...to make me look younger. I ended up looking like Eddie Munster!! I spent the last 36 hours trying every kind of home remedy to make me look less like Liberace and more like Sam Elliot (hey, I can dream!). None of 'em worked.

    I ended up going to some 'coloring salon'. The last place on earth I ever imagined myself ever being!!! They said my hair was blue. Not black. Blue...like cobalt.

    They got the blue out. But my silvers and greys are 99% gone, too. I like those guys!! I miss 'em! Now my hair looks like it's 1983 (minus the mullet).

    Of course my wife is mortified. She's been doing her own hair for years. I still love her more than anything, though.

    Thank God I'm 'between jobs' right now...I can hide in my house. It's probably not as bad as I think it is. And some day we'll laugh about this. I just need to tell somebody...and thought you guys might have similar stories to tell.


  8. Ira, it saddens me when I see other men go thru what I went thru a few years ago. My heart aches for you (in a guy kinda way). But let tell you, the negativity will never end from her side BUT it won't affect you any more. With time comes distance. Eventually you will seperate yourself and your identiy from the negstvity and will live a more enriching positve life Hang in there. It will come.
