GD: Now, to wrap up for this Beaver Island Wednesday…
Here’s a thought for the day: For Lucas and Sophia and all our listeners – “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.” 
― Albert Einstein
On a lighter note… Knowing how to number things should be easy for people that want to run a bank. Fifth Third Bank, I’m going to say really isn’t a good example of that ability!!!
