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

Saturday, July 25, 2009


We went visiting family yesterday. We had our third daughter and her boy friend with us. We stopped to see my mother but she was asleep - we went in anyway and she couldn't stay awake so we went south to see Inklings mom and dad. On the way our daughter wanted to take her boyfriend to Red Canyon to see the views. We went through the tunnels and she honked like I used to do when we went through. Then we drove on up the canyon a ways.

I asked her where we were going. She said she forgot we weren't going to Bryce and turned around. We came back through the tunnels and her boy friend wanted to climb the tunnel and have his picture taken. We stopped and did that. That is him on top of the picture even though you can't tell much. He almost ran to the top of the tunnel.

When we came back to my mother's house my youngest brother, his wife and two kids were there. His first comment was "Well Hello fat boy!" That's the pot calling the kettle black but I just let it go - for the first time in my life - I LET IT GO.
It was good to see everyone.
