      I think you just can’t find happiness for a few decades sometimes…

    Good quote. He used to be ‘Denzil the Nomad’, until he settled in Washington!

    In the Navy, I learned that the two best duty stations were the one you just left and the one you are going to.

        Isn’t Happy one of the twelve dwarves?
        No seriously, I was happy. I was attached to only one boat while I was in. Never really had anything to look back on, or forward to.

    It does seem to be an affliction for many people. Different or the next one isn’t always better.

    Very true, it’s why I flit from job to job, even though I know little will change

    Very true, Chel and it takes a while before you realise the grass is never greener on the other side x

    I left various patches of grass, thinking that the grass on the other side of the fence was greener, only to discover that it was quite brown and dried up, but alas now I’m trapped on the wrong side of the fence and realized my original patches were quite green all along.

    Ultimately, the grass is greener where you water it.

    In conclusion, I can’t be happy until I have my Toilet Gator millions.

      I think it’s way past time you published Gators just for fun and focused on applying some fertilizers.

        It really is a deep, rich world, dragging us deep into the world of toilet animal-based crime.

      That’s a very deep observation on your part, by the way.

        I know everything now but I figured it out too late and my body is too old. Also, I think I know everything but keep making the same mistakes anyway. I don’t think you ever get to know for sure if a big decision was right until you’re 10 years into it. Like Tyrion said on Game of Thrones when someone asked if something was a good idea he said ask me in ten years.

          Sure, but there is a point at which you realize today may not be perfect but will be the start of the next ten years. So, you know: start today.
