By Dale O'Dell
Oh what a tangled web we weave,
When first we practice to deceive~Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832)
I have a copy of this hanging in my office at work. I always imagine that the image in the mirror is me...untangling someone's web of deceit, excuses, tales of woes and fraudulent behavior or actions. Needless to say I enjoy my job!
