Look on the bright side, at least you still have a wife. I quit a high paying job in 1990 and bought a run down, 268 acre irrigated farm with all the water I would ever need. Raised sheep, hay and grain. Stayed till 2000 and had the place looking like a well maintained city park. Making more money than I had when I had a regular job. My ex was living and working in town 43 miles from me and would come out on the weekends and help. Our goal was for her to quit when I got the place going good and we had a little extra money in the bank. Well, I guess she had other plans because I found out in 2000 that she had been having an affair behind my back for nine years and had gotten in with the drug crowd. I sold the place when I found out and was going to move her away. Didn't happen. She ran off with her drug addict lover one night and filed for divorce. I met another girl and came to Colorado. Retired for a year and then found a part time job on a ranch. In the meantime I had two other live-ins that took me for a quarter million dollars. Been here for twelve years and have watched it go down hill every year. Lost a bunch of pasture lease and the guy had to sell half his cow herd. This week we just found out we may be losing another three hundred acres of pasture and this morning just found out we are only going to get half the irrigation water that we got last year. So may be looking for another job before the year end. Life is so much fun sometimes I don't know how to handle it. Anyhow, GOOD LUCK IN THE FUTURE. Don't do any good to cry over spilt milk.
