There are some things you lose track of, & regret.

Dad wouldn't let me put denim patches on my jeans so I worked my way around that rule and took a quilt my great grandmother made for me and made a pattern of the floral design she used.  I then used scraps of fabric and basically had two flowers on the ass of my pants - hand quilted.  

I just wish I at least had a damn picture of them.  There was a lot of work put into decorating those jeans.

When you think about things like that, it isn't about the money, it is about the memories.
