How often I recall the tale of the three toads…

They decided to cross the road to a greener field on the other side,
but were momentarily delayed by a deep rut in the auto tracks.
Two toads hopped over the rut successfully,
but the third misjudged the distance and fell in.
His friends waited for him as he tried to jump out but failed.
Finally, they deserted him and went on across the field.
A few moments later,
they were amazed to see their friend hopping merrily toward them.
“What happened?
The last we saw, you were in a rut and couldn’t get out.”
“I know,” he replied. “But a car came along and I had to!”

Please call my office if you’re in a “financial rut”…
we may be able to help.
