..it is amazing how our viewpoints on so many things can change as we age and learn more about this crazy existance called life. For instance, just a couple decades ago my focus in life was ending the lives of many a furbearer...and I did my job well. Today, I do all I can to help critters and wouldn't harm one unless it was to protect myself. I feel no guilt for the past, but now enjoy animals and life around me far more. :sorry: I used to hate cats, now I love the damn furballs. Got plenty of them around the place now (5), and the rodent population is at an all time low..;-) :sorry: Anyone else done a 180 on anything as you got older? ISO

I swore I'd never quit drinking beer and I quit from age 22 to age 31. Then I quit at age 40 and started back at 49. I could name 15 things that I;'ve done 180 degree about, mostly beliefs and religion and family matters. I've been married three times, once for 17 years, once for 3 months and recently for two years. As we get older, we mature and change.

Many things have changed with me too. Some things I am more liberal in (civil rights) and some more conservative (individual rights). I also wouldn't hurt and innocent animal and have become a big recycle nut too.

Yeah, used to know everything only to find out everything I knew was wrong. Apparently successfull at never growing up though, still get told to do so occasionally.

I think the Who wrote this song {a baby brain and old mans heart it took 18 years to get this far} says it all.it's not till later in life you unstand what your mom&dad were talking about.I have seen the changes in this life and look back and say how did I make it this far.One thing I'am a survivor and the will to survivor will always drive me.what you say today you will not do,in ten years you are doing what you said you would not.thats life way of saying you are grown up now do what you have learmed and grow some more cause you are not done. PEACE

no but now i do!
Posted Image Mr. Lizard is a large reptillian beast first introduced to Ralph in volume 2 when a hot chick throws a bag containing Mr. Lizard into Ralph's convertable. In his next visit to RSA, we learn that Ralph Snart is personally responsible for Mr. Lizard's unusual size and ability to converse because Ralph fed him radioactive crickets when he was a child. Irritable and easily annoyed, Mr. Lizard loves beer and getting trashed as much as his co-star Ralph.
