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

Friday, July 3, 2009


Well what we thought was going to be a lonesome fourth is turning out quite different that that. Native Minnow called last night and told us he thought he was going to come for the weekend. He did and we met him south and visited with both of his grandmothers on the way to our house. While we were visiting Inklings parents Dr.Psycho called to se if he could come see us too. We told him sure so when we got home he was waiting at the house with two of his children.

Tonight for the first time in a long time we have four adults and five kids kicking around the house. It is noisy but seems kinda good. Best part is I don't have to parent any of the kids.
