Why does Edgar Guest Poetry Come to Mind Tonight?



"Somebody said that it couldn't be done
But he with a chuckle replied
That maybe it couldn't but he would be one
Who wouldn't say so til he tried.

"So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin
On his face. If he worried he hid it.
And he started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn't be done and he did it."


I'm sure the Edgar Guest wouldn't mind me typing this from a childhood memory, and will overlook any misquotes along the way.

It's just what I thought of when I saw this box on my doorstep tonight.

Don't know why. I mean, I'm just saying ...

Since Vicki W asked the question:



This is what 82 yards in a 30 lb box looks like. And since this was reported on last Sunday's stash report, I'm purchase-free so far this week!! LOL
