Monday was Mom's Shopping Day / Everything Happens for a Good Reason

SENIOR SHOPAHOLICS! - After I (Rob) finished work in the morning, my mom and I drove up to meet Jim and his mom Jill for lunch and shopping. Jim took the day off so that it would work out. After a nice lunch in a mall, our mothers (who met before and hit it off) walked around and showed us the shop-a-holics that they were! Jim and I thought it was actually pretty funny and cute to watch the two of them together. Of course, we realized that we were watching "shopping professionals" when we spent TWO HOURS in one corner of the women's clothing area of JC Penney. We finally both called them to leave because I didn't want to hit rush hour traffic going home. They're getting a return shopping engagement on Thursday because they didn't even get through ONE entire store in 2 hours! :) Here are some photos from the day of Jim, his mom Jill, my mom (making goofy faces) and me.

EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A GOOD REASON - My mom didn't want to be away from home and stay with us two weeks, but everything happens for a good reason in life. This was no exception. Originally we were going to have Mom stay one week, but we made her ticket a 2-week return. Five days ago, a 10 foot in diameter water pipe that feeds all of Boston and eastern Mass. ruptured. Drinking water and all water suddenly became unavailable for days! Finally, the pipe is repaired (so we read today). Fortunately, by being here with us on vacation, Mom missed the drama of being home and not having water!
NICE FLOWERS - Here's a vase of flowers that our friend Jeff gave to my mom.

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.
