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

Yesterday we went south to visit my in laws. Got to see Nene and Delirious and her spouse and youngest son in addition to MIL and FIL. They came out for the family reunion a week early. We had a good visit and came home to what appears to have been a pretty big rain storm. The garden looked really good and the temperature was down a bunch from earlier in the day.

We are going back over today to visit some more. I think it is pretty nice that Inklings is getting to see her family for a few days. Not sure all this travel back and forth is what she had in mind but it isn't that far and it is nice to sleep at home. We are having a family reunion over there Saturday and that ought to be a really good day for visiting folks I haven't seen in years. I have only been to this family reunion a couple of times because I have been gone fighting forest fires for most of them. A week after this is over I will make myself available again to go out on fires. Not much of a fire season this year though.
