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 Inklings and I went on a short road trip. We went south to see how the remodeling of my brother's house is going. I think it is going great and hope everything gets done by the time he wants it done. Right now I would say it is on track to be completed on time. It is going to be a beautiful house when it is finished.

After we looked it over we went to lunch with a couple of friends and then further south to see her parents. We had sunshine, rain, wind, snow and any mixture of the above you can imagine. Shows that spring is for sure comin'. We had a great visit with them and got home before dark to avoid the deer on the road. We saw a lot of dead deer along the side of the road that had been hit in the last few days. Also saw an Eagle eating a dead deer but didn't get a picture. I am pretty sure it will eat a few meals there before moving on.
