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!

Sunday, July 11, 2010


Over the weekend Inklings and I took a road trip north. We saw five of our seven kids, one of my really ill friends and then went to a happy event. One of my really good friends got married Saturday---the pictures below are of some of the FS folk that showed up. It was fun to see her happy. She's the second from the left in the photo.

We learned on this trip that there isn't enough time to do everything and see everyone for as long as we would like to see them. Since we really could do things differently with the travel we probably should.

Scott---thanks for the photos ;-)

Maybe I can move on from the writer's block I have had the past while.

You're retired now! Take at least one trip a month up north! Or more! :0)
