I love this song!  I remember hearing it as a kid in my aunt’s living room.  She said it was a happy song about love.  It is and I do love how Charles Trenet sang it.  Translation.

Paying It Forward is a page that I use to honor many of the furry and feathered mates I have had privilege to care for.  I do believe that someday I will see them all again.  Sadly, I lost another one to cancer.  All of my critter friends are rescues.  They were deemed discards by others, but to me they were anything but discards.  They have taught me patience, loyalty, and unconditional love.

For supporters, it must have been an unbelievable victory, and for her critics, an outrage. For those that have known her, there’s an added dimension of anecdotes, personal interactions, and concrete memories of her conduct, all of which color the quality of that commutation.
