  1. They looked pretty sad to me. Got to be a tough sale indeed. Even tougher now with so many different religions that don’t necessarily read the Bible.

    Have a terrific day Glenn. Big hugs. :)

    …Sandee, all Salesmen look sad when there is no booze on the table.

    I was told at the start of my sales career by an old salt of a Salesman, “Son it’s not your job to convert the natives, but to sell a few bibles”.
