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

About Me

My photo
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!

Tuesday, August 18, 2009


Today as soon as I got settled in at work I got a call from my retirement advisor. She told me I had made a couple of mistakes on the papers and talked me through the changes needed. After I got home from the mountain this afternoon I pulled up the papers and fixed the errors, printed them, re-signed them and re-mailed them to my counselor.

I put in a note that asked that she check them for accuracy and notify me by phone or by e-mail if they were correct or if they were not - I wanna know for sure that she got them back. I also wanna know for sure that they are complete and correct - it would be the @#!$%^^&%& *&^()*%#$# to have an error at the tail end -

To be right honest I have invested 40 years of my life into this job and I have some fear and trepidation about leaving - not enough to change my mind - but some.
