Time for Changes...

Teach me to feel another's woe,
To hide the fault I see;
The Mercy I to others show,
That Mercy shows to me.

Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened. Anatole France

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Unknown

    "The people I'm furious with
    are the women's liberationists.
    They keep getting up on soapboxes
    and proclaiming
    women are brighter than men.
    That's true, but it should be kept quiet
    or it ruins the whole racket."

    - Anita Loos -
     New York Times, 10 February 1974


     ... I simply love this quote.
    I hope that it makes you smile
    With Love

    Reasons to Smile:

    - Remember its quite true to say
           One smile is worth a dozen frowns.
    - It enriches those who receive,
    Without making poorer those who give.
    - Among the worlds expensive things
    A smile is very cheap.
    - The world will seem a better place
    And all because you smiled.
    - And after all this my dear Friend
    Just give a big one: it's Weekend

    ... so, I wish you a wonderful one.
    And, smile dear Friend
    With Love
