Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

About Me

My photo
I am married and have seven children and twenty grandchildren. I retired January 1, 2010 after working 39+ years for the Forest Service...NEW CHAPTER IN MY LIFE HAS BEGUN!

Friday, January 30, 2009


Super Bowl Sunday is only a day away---by this time Sunday we will have a new Champion football team....and it will be....THE 3 perhaps in overtime and I'm not predicting the score---I will predict that it will be a hard fought game and no easy win---no matter who wins.

Kurt Warner deserves to be the winning quarterback---before he was a great football player he was a bag boy in a grocery store. He married a clerk from the grocery store that is older than he is---she had two kids---if you haven't read their story let me know and I'll post the highlights here---he has to be a great guy to do what he did.

The broken down snowmobile was repaired today and taken for a test run---it is probably OK to go---now who has the guts to take it without a mechanic on board!!!!

I checked the horses (from my work) in the pasture today to see if the winter is getting at them. Two of the seven came to see me and they got two bales of hay...the others thought I was going to catch them and take them out for a ride so they didn't come---oh well---they looked good and can get by for a few more days where they are. The snow is also getting shallower so they are able to get at the grass easier. They never---nope not ever---look this good in a corral where we are feeding hay every day.

On the way back to the interstate we saw a flock of wild turkeys walking along the river bottom---eating Russian olive seeds---lots of turkeys. Why didn't I buy a turkey permit this year---I knew they were there---over a hundred were in the same spot last year and the numbers today would probably have been that high had we flushed them out.

Inklings threatened me with bodily harm the other day---something about kicking me until my cheeks swelled up but I can't remember the rest right now---Inklings is sitting right beside me and says she has a blog too---and she knows how to use it---ouch my cheeks are starting to swell.

I'll probably blog the rest of this story some day. In the meantime have a great day---or night whichever it is for you......

I only threaten in SELF DEFENSE. How convenient that you can't remember the details. Hmmm.

I love these last few blogs of random thoughts

"until my cheeks swell like a chipmunk" I was advised to get it correct if I quote someone.
