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!

Friday, October 9, 2009


One of the ladies that works with me had a little girl about three years ago. She brought her to work with her for six months. She would come in my room and sit on my lap and type her mother notes on my computer and we'd send them to her via e-mail. It was cute and it was fun to have her around.

At six months we require that they retire and go somewhere else for day care. I guess that makes some sense but as far as I am concerned the kids could just as well stay at the office. When she went away she didn't come in for a few months and when she did she was scared to death of me. I keep trying to get her to come see me but she screams and runs until she finds her mom.

Her dad was with her today and she ran screaming to her mom...he laughed and told me "This is so funny that she acts like this when she sees you - when we are home she pretends to be talking to you on the phone all the time." He said it is hilarious to hear her talk to me on the toy phone because she just carries on this little one sided conversation for a long time.

That's so cute. It's cute when little kids like you. I love it.

how cute! Gracie used to do that with an old cell phone of Kaleb's, she'd pretend to be talking to her mom or her grandma and just have little conversations LOL
