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 were at a discount store yesterday and I saw a book about a race horse written by a Thomas Marshall. When I was in High School I was on the wrestling team with Thomas Marshall. We also rode race horses together for a few years. He was way better than me and had the opportunity to ride in the big time. He decided to do what his Dad told him and became a doctor instead. I wondered if it was the same guy. I bought the book and it isn't written by him. It is a good story about twins, a colt and a filly. I have enjoyed reading it so far.

It has been quite a while since I read a book just for the heck of it and I have kind of enjoyed that too. Maybe I'll get started on the part of the bucket list that was to read a million pages---right now I am 1/4 through with that.

I can smell the stink of those wrestling mats just looking at that picture. :)
