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

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!

Friday, February 4, 2011


Yesterday I received a forward from a friend I used to work with. It had been forwarded to him so I looked to see if I recognized any names from the previous forward. I did---the second name on the addresses was the name of my first Forest Supervisor when I went to work full time. So I copied the name and address and sent a message asking if he was the guy. He responded that he was and we sent several messages back and forth. It was fun to find him and communicate a little with him. HE WANTED TO KNOW HOW A YOUNG GUY COULD BE RETIRED ;-). It was sad to find out that many of our co-workers are no longer with us. The intertnet is a wonderful thing for reconnecting with people---even if you have to steal the name from an unknown party that sent it to one of your friends.

I have lost track of far too many people over the years. Always glad when the internet allows them to reconnect.
