Does getting married count?



Most expensive mistake?

Opening a metal fab business and catering solely to the amusement industry.

Opening a shop in rogersville.


Oh, wait, even better, trusting my neighbors to not rob me blind of tools collected over 20 years.

The list goes on and on.
What does "riding season" mean?

Not getting custody of Draik at the time of his mine and his mom's divorce. Waited to fight for physical custody 1.5yrs later. 10 months of Lawyers/fees... not cheap but totally worth every penny.

well ,  what really cost was 2 wifes , but i can't say they were mistakes . got my 2 sons outta of my first wife , but she lost her mind & my second wife blowed alot of money & died out on me . but it was her money. i was in the carnival bizz for 10 years & you learn not to be a sucker that way. never been beat bad on any deal. seen alot of my friend get beat really bad & they won't listen . well , i blowed alot of money having fun . but i don't count that as a mistake. oh i forgot . don't think you loaned money to my little brother money. he beat me good . but what are gonna do ?

slipping on the ice and breaking my elbow back in January.    :31

i think the cost of the surgery alone was 13 grand.  don't have a clue what the total bill would come up to with the various doctor visits, MRI and rehab and all.  i am SOOOO thankful that i had medical insurance when this happened.    :n21

Wrecked my 750 Shadow, all superficial but still cost a bunch to put those things back on.  Next was the wreck where the lady ran into the rear of my first Valkyrie.  Although the bills were paid by her and my insurance, I pay for it with aching shoulder after surgery.  Every day.  Oh, that sweet darling and her cell phone.
