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

I made a terrible mistake for today. I made an appointment with the tax man to get my taxes figured out and submitted. I didn't make the appointment until 5 pm because I thought I might go rabbit hunting with all the guys today. They left at 7 am and I decided not to go. Mainly because I didn't know when the would be coming back and I didn't want to miss the tax appointment.

I hate having the taxes hanging over my head and always breathe a big sigh of relief when they are submitted. I also have never minded paying the taxes I have had to pay - it just always meant to me that I had made some pretty good money. I know the American way is to hate paying taxes...but...I am happy to pay what I owe to help keep our country strong.
