The Queen Mother opens a can of worms

You know, the Queen Mother (All Hail the Queen Mother) brings up an interesting point. While I was blaming Tom Petty for all the evils in my life, she was thanking him for my current life. Had it not been for Willy, I'd have never moved back to Illinois. Had I not moved back to Illinios, I'd have never met FarmBoy & the FarmHands wouldn't be here. In fact, the thought of where I'd be now is kind of mind boggling. I have no clue...I was drifting about rather aimlessly until I met FarmBoy.



So the biggest regret in my life may be directly responsible for the greatest joy of my life. This opens up an entire can of worms...What's your biggest regret? If you could do it all over again, knowing what you know now, would you change anything? Art & I have discussed this repeatedly. If we could go back to the Love Shack, things would be much cleaner...we would have money...we would not be near as stupid as we were 12 years ago. But then we aren't the same people we were 12 years ago.



And to my mother, you could try playing Tom Petty & the Heartbreaker's Greatest Hits when ever Bubba & Princess are in the house. It might help.

i agree whole heartedly with you, i don't believe in regret because all that you have been through up til now have made you the person you are.... well all of that was up until this last little bit of life. but i made some pretty stupid mistakes in my life before and wouldn't take them back because without them there is no rick without rick there is not elisha, josiah and zion, id do it all again to have them again they are worth all the crap!

Uhoh, the regret listing thing is dangerous for me. Let's say I wish I had lived my life remembering "always be kind" and "do no harm". I won't list a specific instance. . . because all of it got me here.

My regret is the schmuck that walked out after our 10-month stint...you know who I mean Farmie...BUT...I wouldn't NOT do it because it too ended up being the vehicle to make me open my eyes, and start down the path I'm on now...and I wouldn't have met and married BB and Captain and the Princess wouldn't be here...

I was thinking of an answer but now I'll I'm doing is singing "My Way" in my head. I'm my own private Sinatra this morning.

Regrets, I've had a few. I can think of a couple stupid college things that I think I'd NOT do. And I don't think it would alter my current life too much. But maybe it would. That's the problem with regret/changing the past.
