(( LW is Lawrence Welk -L is a Lemmon sister LS is the Lemmon Sisters LL is Larry Looper, SS is Stoney Stonedwell AL is Alice Lean, SM is sailor matey SC is sailor captain LW is done in a parody of Lawrence Welk's accent. I will spell this phonetically in a few places Where it is important, but if I did it consistently, LW would be unintelligible. ))
