The First Bank Of Friendship
~*Marge Tindal*~

If friends were gold,
and they may very well be,
I'd have to open my own bank
The First Bank Of Friendship
where deposits are made daily
Friendship with each new account
where interest is compounded
not confounded
no overdrafts
no monthly fees
no reality-check charges
I'd be wealthy beyond doubt with
the deposits placed in my account
where withdrawals are not allowed
My bank would draw quite a crowd
The First Bank Of Friendship
an entrepreneurs dream
Now Open For Business
come deposit your
friendship with
the growing
First Bank  
Of Friendship
where the dividends
keep multiplying
You can bank on it !

No doubt you'd find your bank so replete with deposits, you could go "national" in no time at all...

Hey, you can count on me for sure!
I'd love to be your customer!
I'll fill up that old bank account
And see how much my fortunes mount!

Your eyes will bulge out as you see
Deposits that will come from me
And there will never be a call
To punish me for early withdrawal!

So open for this charming feller
(Just don't be a kissin' teller)
If you will trust this smiling stranger
I'd love to be your loan arranger!

You are refreshing as always my dear friend!!  What an amazing reminder that friendship is a treasure to behold.

 Whatever strength I add to myself becomes my greatest weakness, while whatever weakness I'll consciously endure will be replaced with a strength that is not my own.

Marge, yours is the only bank I know where you are allowed to make withdrawals before you make a deposit.  You do understand laws of abundance...A treasure, my mom friend...
