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.

INTO PERPETUITY

A few years ago I traded a truck with my daughter - it was OLD YELLER (wish I had a picture) - her husband used it for a paint truck for a few years until it just started falling apart. THEN -

They decided to run it in a demolition derby to put it out of its misery. It won and was still running pretty good. SO -

They decided to run it in another demolition derby. It won again but was seriously totalled out - seriously. AND-

Last night I got a text from my daughter saying they had put the engine and some other parts out of OLD YELLER into a Suburban they were running in the demolition derby last night.

Haven't heard yet whether it won or not but OLE YELLER was pretty unstoppable when I had it. My boys will remember a hunting trip with it tipped onto it's right side on the mountain held in place by a small tree. We struggled out through the window. We got out the handyman jack and a chain and jacked it back onto its wheels and went back to hunting.

CAN HARDLY WAIT TO HEAR HOW THE ENGINE PERFORMED LAST NIGHT.
