Having What You Want

Or Is Wanting What You Have Better?

If David & I were both to die later today, who would win? By his own standards, David would... He has more toys.

If Dick & I were to both die later today, who would win? Dick would, by his standards. The woman he loved because he wanted her became the woman he wanted because he loved her, in a marriage of more than 45 years.

I don't have what they have. But then again, I don't have a problem with losing anyone else's comparison... "The Dude Abides."
