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.

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, March 12, 2010


Went to a little league wrestling tournament tonight to watch two of my grand kids wrestle. The oldest has wrestled all year and wrestled 39 matches before he won his first match. His younger brother attended practices two years ago but never got to participate in a meet. Tonight the younger one won his first match---the older one lost all three of his matches. Like I said little league wrestling IS tough. I was proud of both of them for participating. If they continue they will walk away with a huge increase in self confidence and a new insight that they can take on tasks and even if they lose they win in the long run. Experience is a great asset---especially in wrestling and in life. BUT YOU GOTTA PAY THE PRICE TO GET IT!
