Snow on the pumpkin. Thanksgiving 2005! The first snow brings some excitement. It looks clean, new. It usually makes me think of a nice fire, a bottle of wine, music....
In my youth, a doobie. Good sex. Ahhhhhhh, miss those days, I do. Nothing in the world to do but pleasure each other. Relax the day away.

Then, comes kids, bills, a home, a career.............all this effort to achieve, succeed, compete. It doesn't compare with the sweetness of youth. Oh, if I had it to do all over again, says I. Bullshit. I am sure I'd do the same thing all over again. How to have your cake and eat it too. That's the question.

honestly? If I had to do it all over again, I'd have bought a house sooner (as we had the money), I'd have gone to university against the guidance office's advice, I'd have bought a car and license much sooner, and maybe waited a while on the kids. So, really, not that much different!
