Years Riding: Longer than most of you have been alive. And I'm still slow.
How you found us: The voices in my head told me to come here
Despite the hell she has put me through, would you believe I still shed a couple tears in court? Unreal.
The bad thing about the cost is that 90% of it was wasteful and unnecessary. We could each be $125k ahead and I wouldn't be struggling to keep up with expenses. Her South Barrington Bitch friends sent her to a shark who told her what she wants to hear and just ended up fucking everthing up. I'm a pretty good guy and straight as an arrow. This is my second divorce and I've done well for X-1. 17 years later and I'm still giving X-1 $. She knew that. I pleaded to go to mediation right out of the gate and was told "that isn't the way it's done". In the end, she will get the same income as if we went to mediation. Stupid stupid stupid...
BTW, a beer and a ride sounds good, but not at the same time. I finally killed the battery on the 929 so it's just sitting on the pitbulls. Right now I don't want to spend the cash on insurance and tags. I'm hoping to get the old beasty out next summer. All I'm doing for fun these days is walking over to Randall Oaks Golf Course which is 5 houses down and flashing my season pass. Well that and drinking cheap beer with my friends and golf buddies. Just call me Mr. Excitement...
Tony, I did manage to keep the Vette. My partner offered to take over the note and I can pay him back whenever I get back on my feet. He didn't want to see me lose it because of the bitch. I'm hoping to be back on my feet within 2-3 years. Keep your fingers crossed.
There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
