We've had an adventurous day. We were supposed to go to a garden center to look at Christmas lights... it didn't happen. Instead, I (Rob) found a couple of hold out stink bugs on the 2nd floor of the house, and went nuts cleaning (Tom was at work). It took hours of vacuuming, moving furniture, etc. I then wrote a story about U.S. weather using a NASA satellite image (http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/hurricanes/features/goes-holiday.html), walked the dogs in the cold, and did laundry. We were supposed to go to lunch with Tom's folks, but my mom wasn't feeling well at lunchtime so we didn't go. By dinnertime she was better and hungry, so we met our friends Ed, Susan and Cary for Chinese food and took these pictures. We spent the rest of the evening inside and out of the cold!
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.
We're two married guys who enjoy the simple things in life, especially our dogs. We volunteer for dog rescues, enjoy splitting dinners, exercising, blogging, helping friends and neighbors, ghost investigations, coffee and tea, Tudor history, weather, superheroes, comic books, mystery novels, traveling, 70s and 80s music, classic country, piano, gardening, writing books on ghosts and spirits, architecture, keeping a clean house, cooking simply, and keeping in shape. You'll find tidbits of all of these things on this blog and more.
