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!

Thursday, March 10, 2011


Today I am driving a woman to her going away party in this 1930 Model A. They did an old time Forest Service photo shoot a few years ago at Big Flat. I wore the old time uniform for that and she wore the old time dress. It was kind of a fun day so they asked if I would drive her to her party in the car with the uniform on. I told them yes. They brought the car but can't find the uniform so guess I'll just drive her there in regular clothes.

Does the car belong to her or to the Forest Service? Looks like fun!

So cool! I wish they could have found the uniform!

Seriously...I wish I could have gone for a ride in it!!! TOTALLY jealous! Jason's dad will be too! :D

The car belongs to one of the other employees, but he has actually sold it and the new owner is getting it next week.
We have a large poster of Dee Ice wearing the uniform - they made it for his retirement party.

Looks like fun, although a Bonnie and Clyde character would have been good too!
