Rigs my old mate, remember how I felt when I sold all of my models; but, I always believe that something always happens for a reason - we always do something unexplained for a reason - through selling my models - I met a whole new bunch of friends (including you) so, I never regret anything I have done - apart from one thing - meeting one person! but then everyone meets a 'shopper' in their life dont they.  :} :o %) :-))

If I do regret anything in life its selling me C reg Granada  {:-{

Had second thoughts, the greatest regret of my life is that I started smoking and because of that I doubt if I will see my granddaughter grow up.

My greatest regret?

Not taking a job with Ordnance Survey when I was offered one after leaving college in 1967.

It would have meant a move to Southampton (If I remember correctly), and at the time it seemed to be a long way from home.  I would have been a cartographer instead of an engineer, and would have probably enjoyed my career...(and be retired already)  <:(

My biggest regret?

Wondering about what may have happened if I hadn't done the things I regret or had done the things I regret not doing.

Now my brain hurts  {-)

Dicky - what a bonny little lass she is - as they say up North. 

One thing about grand-bairns - you can hand them back; when they get out of hand  :-) 

mmmmmm when are we going to hand you back????  %% {-) {-) {-) {-) {-) {-)

Seeing as this is quite a big question - I have given it more thought than I would others, I've considered my reply after looking back at my life.

I have no regrets.
I like who I am now and what I've become, more importantly there are others who think I'm a good person and what I do helps them to thrive. My choices have generally worked out for the better for me and for those around me. I've never intentionally done anyone a bad turn.

Things have happened to me similarly as they have happened to others, some good some bad, you can't change it now it's past - at the time you probably thought you were doing the right thing - so it must have been.

Enjoy what you have now and be grateful - tomorrow it could all be gone.

end of sermon..


On a more materialistic note - I should have kept my BMW, but now I'm in a position to afford to buy another

Taking to much notice of my parents together with other people and not going to sea and seeing the World.

Not asking Judith Howlett to marry me when I had the chance.

Iíve still got the TR6 though.

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.

I planned each charted course
Each careful step along the byway,
And more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

I'd like to have seen Sinatra in concert

Regret not keeping in touch with my parents enough. Now they are not here it hurts.

On a lighter note, I regret not keeping or looking after my MG Midget.
Neil you are lucky in obtaining that MGC.
