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

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, March 24, 2010


Today we went south to court with our son and his wife. We drove for two hours. When we got to the court house they weren't there. Their case was scheduled for 2:15 and at 2:10 they still weren't there (and my son was trained better than that). I was getting very nervous---they arrived just barely after that but I didn't look at the clock to get the time. At 2:15 they called us in for the hearing on the case---at 2:18 the judge closed the case---at 2:23 we were outside the courthouse with their case finally being closed with signed papers in hand. We drove home for two more hours.

Four hours driving for eight minutes in court---time well spent---the only reason to go was to show support---glad we did the judge called on us for our thoughts before he closed the case---as the title implied it was a MOMENT IN TIME---and not much more than that.

A moment in time, but a very pivotal moment in their life.

Well, we did get to visit with our kids and grandkids afterwards for a little bit.

It's good that you went. I'm really glad they are doing good.
