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

I didn't post a blog on my birthday but just for the record - we did a lot of stuff - most of which wouldn't be considered celebrating a birthday. I stopped doing that when the body started to hurt more each time. Anyway just for the record it was a very good day. It's always a good day when you have your birthday and a holiday the same day.

Just for the record, I have eleven weeks of work left until I punch the clock the final time. SOOOOOOO - LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT DAY!!!!!

What are you going to do with all your time when you retire? Maybe you should do a blog on that and tell us what you have planned. :0)

I'm glad you had a good birthday, and 11 weeks, that'll go by fast!
