Dear Friends and Schoolmates,  
   It's time again for one of my favorite crybaby songs. 
This is very good for the tear ducts.

FINALLY:
From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 11/30/13:
 
The manager of a large office asked a new employee to come into his office. "What is your name?," was the first thing the manager asked.

"John," the new guy replied.

The manager scowled. "Look, I don't know what kind of a namby-pamby place you worked at before, but I don't call anyone by their first name! It breeds familiarity and that leads to a breakdown in authority," he said. "I refer to my employees by their last name only - Smith, Jones, Baker - that's all. Now that we got that straight, what is your last name?"

The new guy sighed and said, "Darling. My name is John Darling."

The manager said, "Okay, John, the next thing I want to tell you..."

Once Upon a December
Sung by Liz Callaway (b. 13 Apr 1961) in Anastasia, 1997

Dancing Bears,
Painted wings,
Things I almost remember,
And a song someone sings,
Once upon a December

Someone holds me,
Safe and warm,
Horses prance through a silver storm,
Figures dancing gracefully,
Across my memory....

Far away,
Long ago,
Glowing dim as an ember
Things my heart used to know
Once upon a December

Vocalizing

Someone holds me
Safe and warm,
Horses prance through a silver storm,
Figures dancing gracefully
Across my memory.....

Far away, long ago,
Glowing dim as an ember
Things my heart used to know
Things it yearns to remember

And a song
Someone sings
Once upon a December

"Having recovered many, many forgotten and repressed memories in these last five years,
I can almost make it through hearing this song without breaking down and sobbing - almost...."
