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!

Saturday, April 10, 2010


Last night I got a call from our youngest daughter MJ who was supposed to be on her way down to see us with her boyfriend. She just called to let me know that she had just got engaged. They have not yet set a date but my guess is mid-summer. It doesn't seem possible that she is old enough to get married.

She graduates from college on May 8th after three years at Utah State---she is graduating magn-cum-laude (I think that is the right one) from the Huntsman School of Business at USU. I am way proud of her and wish her well with her coming marriage and her job hunt.
