The Bright Side :)

As I have been painstakingly emailing my photos to myself, I found a picture buried in the midst of tons of others. If I had not gone through my photos, I would have never discovered it. 
The picture was taken a little over a year ago. Spanky was about 6 1/2 months and Dino was about 2 1/2. I know they fell in love with each other the second they first met, but I think this is the moment they became friends for life :)




I wanted to add the song "The Greatest Discovery" by Elton John to go with the picture but Playlist is down so please take a moment to read these beautiful lyrics ;)
Edited to add: Just added the song, it's the only one on the playlist right now so it should be playing for you :)

"The Greatest Discovery"

Peering out of tiny eyes
The grubby hands that gripped the rail
Wiped the window clean of frost
As the morning air laid on the latch

A whistle awakened someone there
Next door to the nursery just down the hall
A strange new sound you never heard before
A strange new sound that makes boys explore

Tread neat so small those little feet
Amid the morning his small heart beats
So much excitement yesterday
That must be rewarded must be displayed

Large hands lift him through the air
Excited eyes contain him there
The eyes of those he loves and knows
But what's this extra bed just here

His puzzled head tipped to one side
Amazement swims in those bright green eyes
Glancing down upon this thing
That make strange sounds, strange sounds that sing

In those silent happy seconds
That surround the sound of this event
A parent smile is made in moments
They have made for you a friend

And all you ever learned from them
Until you grew much older
Did not compare with when they said
This is your brand new brother
This is your brand new brother
This is your brand new brother

I need to play that song when they drive me nuts. Or each other nuts, or something like that.

That is such a sweet picture. It could win contests for sure! (I'm listening to Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes...) but the lyrics are gorgeous that you printed.
