Robert McGee


Recommended Posts

Is this guy any relation to Sam McGee from the famous poem by Robert Service? (Sam McGee was an actual person.)

My favorite poem ever!!!


I used to have my answering machine message that was a funny mashup of the opening/closing stanza of that poem many, many years ago (when I lived in FL still).


It was something like:


Strange things boon

Under the Florida moon

In the land of the surf and the sail

You've embarked on a quest

To speak to the best

But sadly did not prevail

Fear not my friend

Chris is true to the end

The termite will return

So, just leave a message....(just to break the cadence for comedic effect)
