Crabpot Castle



If I had my life over again, I'd try to make more mistakes next time.
I would relax.
I would limber up.
I would be sillier than I have been this trip.
I know of a very few things I would take seriously.
I would take more trips.
I would climb more mountains, swim more rivers and watch more sunsets.
I would do more walking and looking.
I would eat more ice cream and less beans.
I would have more actual problems and fewer imaginary ones.

You see, I am one of the people who lives prophylactically and sensibly and sanely hour after hour, day after day. Oh, I've had my moments; and if I had to do it all over again, I'd have more of them. In fact, I'd try to have nothing else. Just moments, one after another instead of living so many years ahead of each day. I have been one of those people who never go anywhere without a thermometer, a hot water bottle, a gargle, a raincoat, asprin and a parachute.

If I had it to do all over again, I would go places, do things and travel lighter than I have. If I had my life over, I would start bare-footed earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall. I would play hookey more , I wouldn't make such good grades except by accident. I would ride more merry-go-rounds. I'd pick more daisies!
