 “So love your neighbor as yourself
Don’t use money to measure wealth
Trust in God but lock your door
Buy low sell high and slow dance more

Some folks have and some have not
What really counts is what you do with what you’ve got”

 And as Lawrence Welk would say; “Adios… Au Revoir… Auf Wiedersehen… Goodnight!”
