Yes, that would be it, I wouldnt change one other thing cause which one would I pick? I have a crapload of regrets, piss poor decisions and other wrongs I would love to fix but its like taking you hog out in a whore house, where do you start and where does it end?

If I won the big lottery, I could at least fix a bunch of things and have a damn good time doing it. I would love to walk into work today (Super Liberal Arts University), hand them a 15 minutes notice, grab my crap from the shop and tell them to suck it! I would send them a special 13 cent donation (Their Lucky Number) and donate a million to Morrisville College, my almost alma matter (Another thread), a local Ag and Tech School that teaches useful stuff not Hogwash!

I would like to go back and avoid cigarettes the second time around. I doubt it would have made a difference in my heart disease, but it sure would have changed a bunch of other things.

My idea on this is that life has been a series of choices…either/or decisions, “forks in the road.” Some major, some minor. And the thing is, when these choices present themselves, more often than not we make them without considering the long term consequences. Would smoking or not smoking have changed my life? My wife says she would not have married me if I had smoked. But I didn’t choose not to smoke because of that. I just never picked up the habit. Did my decision not to accept orders to nuclear power school in the Navy change the course of my life? Most definitely! But at the time I just liked the ship I was on and didn’t want to transfer.

Being in the “winter of my years” looking back, I can’t say I wish I had done this or not done that because who’s to say what decisions would have taken my life down a completely different path. And I like the path I’m on.

Sinatra sung a song “My Way.” “…Regrets? I’ve had a few, but then again, too few to mention. I did what I had to do and saw it through without exemption…..

…….more, much more than this, I did it my way.

It seems the demon of poor life decisions has been my mentor

since high school. There are so many to choose from:

#1 would have been getting a college education instead of

the highly touted (at that time) "early jump on the job market".

But there's also:

-NOT taking that mint Bonneville convertible as my

first car (totaled it in less than 3 weeks)

-NOT trusting that "financial genius"(always ask to see the mansion,

Rolls, and yacht...)

-Making a better MOS choice in the service.

just to name a couple...

Yanno, in "Free Will" the RUSH song, it says

"if you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice"

How many of us wonder where our lives would have gone, if

we had stayed more physically trim, and had a better diet,

for instance? But these little decisions about overeating, and

under-exercising have their calamitous results, too.

I was raised by my Grandparents and if I could have a do over I would bug both of them incessantly about how they did things years ago like growing a garden, curing meat and things like that. A lot of skills are being lost with the passing of each generation. I remember one of my Great Grandfathers and he was a carpenter and one of the few people around at the time that could sharpen saws. I would have learned skills like that.

Gun confiscation will not happen in my lifetime.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

I believe in the Butterfly Effect. If I were to change one thing, I would not be here, right now, doing what I am doing
