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

We had a lovely Thanksgiving dinner with only us, Inklings Mom and Dad and Native Minnow. We didn't even try to eat the entire 25 pound turkey---but I still ate way too much. Native Minnow left Friday for home and our oldest son, his wife, and five children came over for a visit. They spent the night and it was fun to have them here.

They are all growing up way too fast but guess that is what happens to kids. We missed all the rest of you. Looking forward to Christmas.

I'm glad Mom and Dad went, and I'm SHOCKED they stayed the night! lol

I was very surprised, too, but it was to see Choral Responses and his wife and kids since she is recovering from serious surgery.

I'm really glad Mom and Dad came. I worried about them so was glad to find out (after we got home from our Thanksgiving) that they made it to your place.
