  1. I have no doubt it will be done. What do I base my statement on?

    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 till he’d tried.
    So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
    On his face. If he worried he hid it.
    He started to sing as he tackled the thing
    That couldn’t be done, and he did it.

    Somebody scoffed: “Oh, you’ll never do that;
    At least no one has done it”;
    But he took off his coat and he took off his hat,
    And the first thing we knew he’d begun it.
    With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,
    Without any doubting or quiddit,
    He started to sing as he tackled the thing
    That couldn’t be done, and he did it.

    There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,
    There are thousands to prophesy failure;
    There are thousands to point out to you one by one,
    The dangers that wait to assail you.
    But just buckle it in with a bit of a grin,
    Just take off your coat and go to it;
    Just start to sing as you tackle the thing
    That “couldn’t be done,” and you’ll do it.

    • Maybe I could figure out a way to do it and end up with more comments, too.-) Hmm. No, I can’t think of anything. Actually, I’m having trouble thinking at all, what with this head cold.


      • Sorry to hear that. Nothing worse than a cold. I was just working on a post/song about being cold and maybe it would have helped you. lol

        But since it is beautiful and near 80 F here, you will just have to wait.

        • It’s only about 15C here (~60F). It’s supposed to be sunny tomorrow, so I think I’ll take my bike out for its last ride of the year, then tuck it in for the winter.
