Thoughts in passing

Regrets? Of course

It took four marriages to finally domesticate me. Three fine ladies -- Barbara Goode, Patti Jones, and Karen House -- tried their best, but I was trouble on the hoof.

While it was never my goal to live a priest's life, I certainly had no intention of being such a wrecking ball. Three divorces!

I recognize that my satisfactions described above offer little comfort to my ex-wives. So let me explicitly give them the respect they deserve: All three were wonderful wives, and we had good, loving times together. Barbara and I had two terrific daughters, and Patti brought me the unexpected joy of a stepson.

In each divorce, I was the problem. And I deeply regret the damage caused by my reckless ways.
