    Agreed. There were a lot of them. My time in the military was the best thing that ever happened to me. It straightened me out quite a bit. Otherwise no telling where my misspent youth would have landed me. I look back now on life and things that at the time seemed monumental... now just seem like dots on the landscape of time. One thing is for sure.. Regret kind of builds like a long term savings account and springs up on you later in life in spades.

    I found out that the worst thing that can happen to someone with no conscience is to get one.

    As others have said. Yes, I have my demons but today is not the day to let them out of their boxes. I will just take them with me wherever I go.

    No. But I also don't earn my living based on my appearance. If I did it would most likely be a concern.

    Learn photography which you should have a solid grasp of and learn or take classes so you can manage younger models and have them under contract. Be ready to chaperone minors for the start. You live in the middle of what I consider the place with the most beautiful women in the U.S. Plenty of opportunity for continuing in the business. Good luck!

    Yep, we all have that one call that’s burned in our head, 32 years later it’s like it happened yesterday. I could vote for a law requiring drunk drivers being shot and left in a ditch.

    There was a part of my life where that was a real fear; probably because I see that as a dead end that very few escape alive. I was able to make a different choice and avoid that outcome, but it certainly was touch and go for a while.

    Your post struck a chord with me. I've saved it in my "Favorite Quotes" file on my computer. Your words helped me immensely.

    Finally made 1000 posts
    Some of the stupid stuff I did in my youth haunts me the most. Nothing seriously illegal or harmful to others, just stupid young punk stuff. It might not even stand out in other peoples memory, but I just shake my head.

    I often hope the people I was around in those days forget that I ever existed.

    This! I had decided to pull the trigger and put $10K of my mad money in BC, and was setting it up when my now-ex-wife came in and gave me hell about something stupid. I got pissed and forgot all about buying the BC, then went on deployment, then decided the price was to high when I re-looked it about a year and a half later.

    If that ***** had just kept her mouth shut for ten more minutes, I'd be wiping my butt with Franklins...

    Seriously, do not fear wrinkles! Jeez, if you keep up everything else, it adds to your presence (I could not think of a better word now). As I grow older I really like to see a woman who has grown older with CLASS vs the stupid plastic surgery jobs that are just not real.

    Totally agree, and if he got up there and passed the torch to the horizontal running mate, OMG.

    Many things. Some faces. Some voices. Some eyes. Some situations. Life is built on the memories. Only some of them are good. That's why the smart folks tend to learn along the way. Those thoughts are just the price.
