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!

Tuesday, December 29, 2009


My kids have been working at getting me some new clothes for every gift day (birthday, Father's Day, etc.)since I outgrew all of my other ones. They culminated the year with a new suit for Christmas. I really like it and the rest of the black clothes that go with it......

I love western suits! I'd experiment with the ties too -- try black ties with some streaks of color - not a lot. Like say, a black tie with a streak or 2 of orange.

I always loved all the western suits my dad wore. I wish my hubby would wear one. Don't know why he doesn't - he wears boots with his Sunday suits, so why not?
