Thanksgiving Fun

It was a good Thanksgiving day. Rain in the morning, cloudy the rest of the day- but enjoyable. We got a pre-cooked turkey from the local supermarket, which made it easier to make the meal. We just had to cook it for 2 1/2 hours. Rob cooked, and Tom took care of the table - our friend Darold, Tom's parents and his sister Lisa and her boyfriend Blair. Dinner included rolls, cranberry stuffing, gravy, baked potatoes, corn, green beans, sweet potatoes, ham, cranberry, apple pie, Pumpkin pie, brownies, oatmeal cranberry cookies. We took a walk with all the dogs and played the Uno card game.   **After everyone left, our friend and neighbor Elvina stopped by for a brief visit to say hello.

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.
