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

Sunday, February 8, 2009


Yesterday three of us went hunting rabbits where we went over Christmas. When we were there before the snow was half way between your ankle and your knee and frozen so it was pretty tough walking through it because every step you broke through. Yesterday we went dressed for that kind of snow conditions. What'd we find - NO SNOW - bare ground that was dry. So we drug those heavy snow boots all over the hillsides. By the time I got home I was done in - MAN IT'S GREAT TO BE IN SHAPE. Round is a shape isn't it????

The worst part about it was that the rabbits have moved- we saw less than 10 - the best part about it was we had fun and got a little exercise. I shot four shots - one at a rock to see if it was the gun that couldn't hit anything - NOPE THE ROCK DISAPPEARED - so guess I need to shoot a whole lot more so I can get my eye back.

About your "round shape" : It's hard to feel any sympathy for someone who grows into a medium!
