You are correct, "You only live once, if you do it right, once is enough". I am finding this out more and more everyday. I didn't mean to jump you like I did, it's just that I recently found out that brain cancer I thought I beat is back. Having found out that the cancer is back in my brain has really made me think about all the things I'd like to do before I die. Your words are so true, do it right the first time and once will be enough. I only wish I had realized that years ago. I'm only 37 so I can attest, if there is something you need/want to say or do, don't wait until tommorrow, do it or say it today or ASAP.
Because so many things and opportunities have been taken from me, I want others to appreciate the gifts that they have. The gift to live in Montana and hunt those big whitetails, mulies, antelope and elk. Just to be able to live there and raise your family.
My best to you and yours, I hope you raise a happy and healthy family.
