2) I should have sharpened more often
3) that day I got caught sneaking a new tool in...
4) I never learnt to get the glue-up flat
5) I didn't even get the electricity working

1) I should never have wasted my money on my daughter's college tuition, and should have bought a set of Marcou's instead.
2) I should have bought that really nice piece of <insert your favorite expensive wood here> when I saw it.
3) I should have taken wood shop and drafting instead of that stupid French class.
4) I wish I had taken a course from Sam Maloof while he was still alive.
5) I wish I had had something shown in Fine WoodWorking.

I'm not so certain. Of the older folks I've known (and I'm starting to be amongst them), there seems to be a time in life when you recognize that things are slowing and it's okay. Most people seem to find acceptance at the end..........

I like this list, I just need some Marcou's and I'm done. #4 was never going to happen anyway.
