Unfortunately, none of us ever get through life without experiencing ‘cryin’ eyes’. 

Perhaps that is a good thing because I believe that the ability to shed tears is one of  the things that separates us from other animals species… and I guess that’s true because I have never seen my dog shed tears, not even when I know she is feeling very sad. She does do long mournful howls though which makes me think it’s good that we cry instead of howling…. Imagine how noisy the world would be!!  (-:

See you on the floor sometime…. Jan
