We Shall Shovel

We Shall Shovel

It’s snowing in Rochester (again… *sigh*).  My good friend James White penned this victorious poem in honor of the occasion.  Minnesotans will prevail against the wet, white enemy! (with sincere apologies to Winston Churchill) Thanks for the inspiration to soldier on, James.

We shall go on to the end, we shall shovel the driveway.

We shall shovel the walks and the stoops.

We shall shovel streets and the curbs.

We shall shovel with growing confidence and lessening strength.

We shall defend our properties from the ravages of winter whatever the cost may be.

We shall never surrender until in God’s good time, spring will arrive.

~ James A. White

    Winston is truly one of my heroes. And if you have never listened to the speeches “Battle of Britain”, “Toil, Sweat, and Tears”, and the “Iron Curtain” you absolutely must. No one in this current day even comes close to the kind of leadership this man provided for the free world.
