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

My inheritance grew over the weekend of closing out my grandmother's old house. I got a bucket full of antique marbles. We bought the two bottles this week and cleaned them up. I thought for a while I was going to be able to get them all into one bottle but there were too many. I am happy to have them.

Oops, that picture turned out a little fuzzy. Notice the really old ones at the top of the bottles. REALLY old, like over 100 years.

How cool! I love marbles! I like the bottles you put them in too!

Can I call dibs on these once you die?
