How has your life changed over the years?

For me. 7 children from 25 down to 9

I own Freedomsmokeusa. A bunch of Ecig lounges. Very popular very busy

Pam and I have had doors open and expansion 7 years ago. It's doing very well.

We are branching out and creating a general contractor business as well. Should be fun.

So how you doing???  Lol
We all live but one life. Let's live it well, laugh, love and enjoy to the fullest...

lol i am almost ashamed to say.. moved from Belgium to the UK after i divorced. Ended up working for the UK government in a benefits call in centre taking claims.

Had a rotten partner in the UK, suffered a job loss and breakdown as a result. Ended up being viciously stalked for a year, got PTSD, deeper breakdown. Physical and mental health went out the window for a while. Like a few years LOL

Much later, i am recovering. But its much better now. Life took a strange turn but in the end, I am in a better place because of it. Sometimes you need to burn the house down and rebuild instead of trying to fix a lost cause lol

So I am now permanently off work due to health, but am collecting and selling Japanese kimonos as my hobby. And foraging for fungi in the New Forest with my dogs when health permits. Potter in my allotment plots.... and try to regain my art bit by bit.. rediscovering my passion for ceramics after a hiatus of almost 30 years ffs.. I still have "it" but need to hone my drafting skills lol I still draw like a hack.

Spend a lot of time playing with my dogs tbh ;)

lol takes more than a few knocks to take me down for good.. i don't think the rest of the universe is ready to face me tbh lol

as weird as it sounds - losing everything i thought was important was probably the thing that did me the most good in the end. Because i am that slow a learner lol ;)

Anyhow, now i can spend my time doing the things that suit me best.

I had a beer at the Monastery in Mesa last year.  Does that count?
