You’ll never guess what we saw

While hitchin a ride on the seesaw

Guffaw guffaw where’s the flaw

Guffaw guffaw where’s the law

 Noodle the thought on what you’ve been taught

Don’t doubt yourself over what you have sought

Boom shhhocka locka morrows can’t be bought

Don’t muddle the puddle lest you get caught

Life’s an on going school three coins in the pool

Zip up your mouth and don’t be a fool

Don’t etch your mind with splintered echoes

You may lose out on the mellow yellows

Buy yourself a pair of stilettos

And rise above those morbid fellows

  8. Hi, Eugenia,-
    The prices/costs that you mentioned was quite interesting to me:
    An average income in the US today – $ 38 000 In Norway : App. US $ 54 500
    A house: $ 129 000 in Norway $ 275 – 300 000
    And you should not complain (We should!) To fill up a tank of gasoline in Norway will cost you
    approxiimately US$ 90, – (Prices vary throught the day/week and it could even be more if you’re out of luck!)

    • Don’t forget these prices reflect year1995, which all prices are much more inflated in 2017. Since my tags are difficult to see, which indicate the year I am referring to in my post, I will find another way to be more specific
