We went to dinner at my (Rob's) nephew's house Sunday: Kenny and his partner Allen hosted a Christmas-time turkey dinner with the trimmings. Kenny's brother Matt flew in from school in Florida, and sister Kelli flew in from college in Arizona, and their parents Ken and Jill came over, too. It was like a family reunion and early Christmas dinner.
R to L: Kelli, Tom, Ken, Jill
Kenny and Allen's apt. was nicely decorated for the holidays, and they even had the Kenny and Dolly Parton Christmas album cover framed on the wall for a decoration (which I- Rob - loved!!). The Christmas music played in the background, and we caught up with Kelli and Matt and heard about their school adventures in Arizona and Florida, respectively. What a fun time!
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.
Great Books by our friends
