On the eve of his birthday, Hef is feeling nostalgic, sharing that if he could go to any place in time, he wouldn't choose the heady days of partying and cavorting with beautiful women, instead he would chose his childhood. "I would love to revisit the time of my childhood," Hef says. "To walk those streets again - I have very, very nostalgic feelings about my childhood."

And not surprisingly, the man that has lived a life that is the envy of many, many men says there's nothing left in life that he still wants to experience or do. He told "I'm in a very good place. What makes now so satisfying is that looking back on a life well lived, in a very good personal relationship, and simply finding satisfaction in the here and now and what has gone before."
