Montana has been good to me

Montana has been good to me.
It shows.
I am very happy with the time I have spent here.
Already today I have had a few moments of "I wish I woulda… Why didn't I?"
Well, I hope you get your chance.
Oh, I will. Just gotta do my time and work things out with the missus. I know of quite a few people that left here and regretted it.
It is a common theme, especially among the young. A lot of young people look around Montana and don't see anything. They don't see the same things they see on teevee. So they think that if they just get out life will be better, if they just go to California or New York or Florida or wherever they will get their big break. Most of them go and it turns into a learning experience for them.
Important rule of thumb. When you choose to leave paradise, when you choose to leave heaven, you must first negotiate passage for reentry.
