Good Movie/Jaw Pain / Sunshine Sunday!

SUNSHINE!! Today really felt like spring was coming! The sun was shining, and we took the dogs on two walks- one over an hour long. It was 55F and beautiful. Tom raked up the backyard (which is now devoid of snow!) and filled up 2 trash bags with broken branches and leaves while Rob worked on a presentation for a talk about his book (More on that another day).
JAW PAIN UPDATE - the oral surgery that I (Rob) had on Tuesday has been waking him every night around 3am when the pain killers wear off. Today, I started stretching out my cheek muscles that are pulled taught because of my TMJ, and it started to reduce the headache. I've been without ibuprofen since 9:30am (for the first time since Tuesday) but will take the big pain killer to sleep tonight. The jaw where the tooth removal and bone implant occurred still hurts like heck.
GOOD MOVIE - We walked the dogs to the library on Saturday and checked out the movie "MOTORCYCLE DIARIES." I had never heard of it- and it was entirely in spanish with English subtitles. It was, however, captivating, and surprising to learn it was a true story! Below is the summary and the movie trailer.
The Motorcycle Diaries (2004) is a biopic about the journey and written memoir of the 23-year-old Ernesto Guevara, who would years later become internationally known as the iconic Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara. The film recounts the 1952 journey, initially by motorcycle, across South America by Guevara and his friend Alberto Granado. As the adventure centered around youthful hedonism unfolds, Guevara discovers himself transformed by his observations of the life of the impoverished indigenous peasantry.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
