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!

Thursday, January 7, 2010


Today I hung my pictures, put my awards into a scrap book, found all of my work history since 1973 and sealed it in a box, put all my fire and other incidents CD's into a CD case where I can find them in seconds, recovered all of the business cards I have accumulated over 40 years and put them in one place wrapped by rubber bands so they can't slide all over the place, wrote one message on face book and one on blogger.

Seven plaques and 3 boxes left inside the house and then I can start on the garage---OH MY!!!!
