Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. we all make mistakes............
    so if you realy could turn back the clock..would you...

  2. Yes Josie I would...but thats another story...
  3. Yeah, I was a bad boy when I was in the navy, did a few bad things and although I learned from them I wish I hadn't done them.
  4. It depends upon the mistake. But as a general rule I would say No, learning from your mistakes is one of the many experiences that shapes who we are today. Abit heavy just before lunch..
  5. yes yes yes!

    My list is far too long though
  6. Not really, but have slight regrets about not changing branch for Sparker to CT earlier in my career.

    Overall no, though like most, I suspect, there are some regrets
  8. Hell yes! If I could turn back the clock and correct all my mistakes I wouldn't hesitate. I've fouled up something rotten in the past, and the horrid thing about life is that you only get one shot at it.

    Unfortunately, correcting one's former mistakes isn't all that easy. Everyone has regrets, and everyone has to live with them. So I'm going to have to do the same and just try and wash away the bad memories like the sea eroding the coastline. Its the good memories I'm the most concerned about, they're the ones to hold onto because they're the ones that make me smile.

    I forget who wrote it or said it, but a minute of misery is sixty seconds of happiness you'll never get back.
  9. Yes I would but its too late now, Im already clincally depressed thanks to my other half

    Would love just 1 more chance to talk to my parents and I would have NEVER quit the service......
  10. They were fun at the time though!!!! :oops:
  11. Damn right mate, how the hell are we still alive????
  12. and now the cheese factor....

    And now, the end is near;
    And so I face the final curtain.
    My friend, Ill say it clear,
    Ill state my case, of which Im certain.

    Ive lived a life thats full.
    Ive traveled each and evry highway;
    And more, much more than this,
    I did it my way.

    Regrets, Ive had a few;
    But then again, too few to mention.
    I did what I had to do
    And saw it through without exemption.

    I planned each charted course;
    Each careful step along the byway,
    But more, much more than this,
    I did it my way.

    Yes, there were times, Im sure you knew
    When I bit off more than I could chew.
    But through it all, when there was doubt,
    I ate it up and spit it out.
    I faced it all and I stood tall;
    And did it my way.

    Ive loved, Ive laughed and cried.
    Ive had my fill; my share of losing.
    And now, as tears subside,
    I find it all so amusing.

    To think I did all that;
    And may I say - not in a shy way,
    No, oh no not me,
    I did it my way.

    For what is a man, what has he got?
    If not himself, then he has naught.
    To say the things he truly feels;
    And not the words of one who kneels.
    The record shows I took the blows -
    And did it my way!
  13. damn you daytona you beat me to that by a few mins
  14. I travelled each and every highway coz my F%^king GPS is crap and took me the wrong way :threaten:
  15. bet you regret buying it then :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
  16. Waiting for the OH to learn to drive so she can get lost and hopefully not come back??
  17. My only regret about the RN was that i wished i had learned to sail, I dont mean little Dinghys, but Big `Uns.
  18. Josiecats I bet you wish you could go back to school and sort your spelling out.
  19. never to old to learn new things.......... :joker: :geek: maybe i can show you a few things.!!!! :hump:
  20. Refusing to let a boy named Gary, have a go on my boogie board down Brighton Beach, in the middle of one of the hottest summers I remember in Adelaide.....turns out his Dad owned the local ice-cream shop!! D'Oh!
