Jeez, we used to use a moistened cotton ball with puppies and kittens. Wait until I tell my vet tech she was doing it wrong all those years.

All behind me now; back to normal, sans wife...


And an interesting tidbit about that scene:

I could not agree more. I have loved this movie for years, but until you have experienced this scene in your own life, you don't really appreciate how powerful his acting was. I remember going through this EXACT moment in my life and not realizing until the following Christmas how well Jimmy captured how I felt.



One of the few actors who is worthy of admiration, in his career but more importantly, in his life.
