The business has changed greatly since my day.
But we do have a golf course near by and I play fairly regularly.
My only regret in life is that I didn't spend as much time with my kids as I now wish I had.
But today, I feel the genuine warmth, the affection, and although I may joke about it, I am touched.
For the amount of talent I had - and I couldn't dance, act, or tell a joke - I enjoyed a tremendous career.
I worked with the world's greatest talents and then went home to the world's greatest woman. It was, and is, a great life.
In many ways, that affection is the real reward for 56 years in the business. Although the money ain't exactly bad either.
That I can't relate to today's music or morals doesn't make either necessarily bad. Just different. I leave the judgements to others.
We also own a little boat and I'm like a kid with it. I take off early in the morning, fishing rod in tow, and just drift about the ocean all day.
I had 13 weeks off and I would pack up the family and drive to some mountain retreat where we could be together and fish all day. I loved it. I needed it.
