    Thank you, Corinna and Geoff for rounding off the evening (well MY evening) so splendidly ... and thanks to everyone else who contributed today. The Playlist is up to date.

    If you haven't shed enough tears today, I leave you with this short clip of the incomparable Stan Laurel, who had crying down to a fine art, and who was reported to have said, "If any of you cry at my funeral, I'll never speak to you again".

    Thanks for hosting this sad season Val! In researching the theme I came across this Johny Cash song. Sent the J.C. version to Jon, and within a few hours we came up with a chart and this clip. On a personal note, I'll never forget studying the Trail of Tears in elementary school, and crying about the sad reality that the Indian peoples faced. Cheers , kev

    Jon played baritone, uke tapping percussion and foot stomping device. I played resonator tenor uke and sang.

    And good morning/afternoon/early evening from deepest France ... where the good news is that it is NOT snowing! Very many thanks to Kev and Jon and Lynda for your splendid offerings. (I was particularly intrigued to hear of the "Trail of Tears", about which I am ashamed to admit, I knew nothing.) The Playlist has been updated.

    Please keep those tears flowing, dear Seasonistas ... I want to be "awash" by the end of the day!

    Thanks for hosting this one Val. I thought I'd set myself an additional challenge of actually trying to memorize an Instrumental and see how far I could run with it before the brain batteries died ………….

    Here is an original from me (surprise, surprise). I tried to think of a way in which I could write about the theme while presenting an argument against "weeping and wailing" instead of acting on what is causing us misery.

    Of course, the solution is never as simple as my narrator feels it is... But a lot of people share my narrator's "pull your socks up attitude"

    Hope you enjoy:

    Here's a Willie Nelson song from as long ago as 1959, which I think I first heard when Pa did it for a season of WN songs.
