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

Wednesday, May 19, 2010


When our kids were little and we would get home to my families house I would tease the nephews and nieces until they would cry. I would keep that up until they would finally come to me and be good so I wouldn't tease them anymore.

My oldest brother's second son told him I was his half uncle. He asked him why and he told him it was because he only liked me half of the time. He's had a hard time living that down and I still introduce myself to his family as the half uncle. Here is a picture of me hanging one of his cousins on Grandma's clothesline. I hung them all this day by their belts or belt loops on the bolt for the eye hook that the clothes line wire was attached to---and then just walked away.

I did eventually go take them down---some cried but most laughed---especially after they saw the first one get taken down. Then the fear factor was gone.
