pass the Kleenex*

.... Such a touching love story...
Some of you might have received this story via emails, but worth sharing with those who have not... " Pass the Kleenex pleassseee..." ~sob*sob**
.
~take a look...
.
This bird was injured badly by the roadside...

Her mate brought her food & tried to attend to her
with love & compassion...

shocked by her death, he tried to revive her!

"wake up! wake up!!" -[ in bird language of course... ]

He was aware that his sweetheart was dead...& cried

He was so devastated by the loss & stood beside
her lifeless body......
.
Isn't it touching...sob*-sob**
.
..........................................................................
.
Well darlings...as usual I'd prefer to end with a SWEET note*
~ a touch of sweetness and a cookie or two...or more?!
(can pass the cold glass of fresh milk now...Kleenex then milk!~hee*)
.

"Aren't they too beautiful to munch*...?!"
.

~Famous for her whimsical, Eleni's hand-iced designs
quickly dubbed “conversation cookies” YUM*!!!
.
ooohhh... I do BELIEVE*!!! ~xoxo

Drollgirl,
when I was little I cried at cartoons on TV & I told myself that it was good for my eyes...to me it was like washing/cleaning my eyes... Quite weird huh?!

I hit a little squirrel once and killed it, and his little friend or lover did the same thing except for squirrel style. I pulled over and bawled and bawled like there was no tomorrow. I feel bad to this day.
