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

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!

Wednesday, October 21, 2009


I awoke at 2:00 a.m. and tried to lay still and go back to sleep. I layed there until 3:15 a.m. with all the aches and pains starting to show up. I decided that 3:00 a.m. was just two hours earlier than I usually get up so I got up and went to work. Inklings sat up in bed as I was dressing and said you are crazy to even think about getting up at this time of day - yup I am crazy - but ya'all already knew that. I got an amazing amount of work done from 3:30 to 4:15 - and I am serious about an amazing amount. I didn't have one single interruption in that time - nope not one - and I didn't get any new messages I needed to respond to either.

I only have 10 weeks left maybe I'll start work from now on at 3:00 a.m.

Nene, he left the house at 3:13 nad came home about 4:13, so if you think that's's actually a typical day, just about 2 hours off each way.
