Hi Gershon, did you see in the news the other day about an armored truck spilling a whole lot of cash on a roadway, (don't remember which state). Motorists got out of their vehicles for a quick cash grab. Your fab poem here immediately brought this to mind. Happy Thanksgiving! :-)

No, I missed that news piece about the cash spill form the armored truck. I only catch intangible stories, I guess. lol. :)

I prefer a bust, but you could ask Powell to issue $25-banknotes each Thanksgiving, knowing people will give them as Christmas presents which might never be cashed . . . . . Aloha!

How about $3.7 dollar banknotes? That would remove any indication of 'Fed Supremacy!' Don't want to get accused of that! :)

You can trade them in for Lucky GW bucks. Pretty soon, what with the soaring inflation here, the pesos will be worth more though. You'd better hang on to them for awhile, Milt!

The bar?... The bar?... You mean 'the bar association?' lol. Upon reflection, lawyers will probably fall for this faster than bartenders. Smiles, gw

I hope all those bills sustain you during your flight up there where Russia has shot a missile and created all that space junk that would destroy you. Since you are going to have all that green, I know you will be going on a space trip. Got to use that money wisely. Thanks for the visits and encouraging words on my page. Sara

Haha! I'm about as unlikely a cosmonaut as I can imagine... In fact, I'm probably through with domestic flights within the USA... let alone instellar adventures. lol. At any rate, with all my green, I hope I've got enough to plant a few flowers next spring! Cheerio, gw
