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.

POOR TRAVELER

I am definately a poor traveler. I get home from a trip and have an extended recovery time. I used to recover from a fire run in a day or two and be ready to go again. Now it takes several days for me to feel like I have recovered to the point I could go out again.

In addition to the fire travel I have done this month (two trips to Las Cruces, New Mexico) we did a trip south that required driving 320 miles round trip in a day. We ate breakfast and lunch on the road so it seemed like more travel than it really was. I am not sure why that trip took such a toll but I am still trying to recover. I am happy we went but wish I recovered faster.

IT'S HELL TO GET OLD ;-)

I know what you mean - traveling is exhausting, I usually need a nap and a day to recover LOL
