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.

About Me

I am married and have seven children and twenty grandchildren. I retired January 1, 2010 after working 39+ years for the Forest Service...NEW CHAPTER IN MY LIFE HAS BEGUN!

Monday, August 31, 2009


This fire season started about 6 weeks behind normal years....but it's making up for it right now. California is burning and Utah is burning....a bet is that it is a later than normal season to make up for the late start. Right now I am the only line officer on the forest I work on so really can't go anywhere. SSSSOOOO today I get a call from the forest to the North with a request that I go North to coach the young rangers up there - - DAMN - - THAT WOULDA BEEN FUN!!!!!
