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.

GREAT TIME - FEW PEOPLE

We just got back from the family reunion. It was great and I got to see quite a few people that I have been looking forward to seeing. I also didn't get to see a lot of people that I have been looking forward to seeing - because they didn't come.

It was a good day and good food and quite a lot of visiting. In October I will have been married to Inklings for 40 years and I am quite certain that this is the first time I have been to this family reunion. I have been to the other family reunions at least three times but this is a first for this one. I have always been on a fire assignment when they have had this one - wanna talk about a slow season - yup this is one.

I know this might sound bad, but that is the only reunion that I really care about. Those are the cousins and Aunts and Uncles that I grew up with. The reunions that have extended family just aren't as meaningful for me. I wish I could have been there, but I've made two trips to Utah already, and will probably have to make one more in August. I do feel that facebook and blogging have helped to keep us together better.

I really missed not being there this year.

a slow fire season is a good thing though, right?
